Samus is officially done. I'd be lying if I said I was 100% happy with the sleeves. They are still a little too full for my taste but when I sewed them into the armholes, they fit perfectly. So removing more width would have resulted in needing to ease the armhole to the smaller sleeve, which would have looked even worse. To compensate, I did knit a couple shoulder pads and added them to the sweater, just to add a little lift to the shoulders and pull out some of the wrinkles.
I love the grosgrain ribbon I chose for the finishing of the zipper. It adds a little punch of color to an otherwise subtle heather blue yarn. I'm wearing Samus to Hockeyboy's game this afternoon. I think it will be the perfect weight to keep me warm at the rink.
Until HB's game, I'm off to watch the Gophers! Let's Play Hockey!!!!!
