FO- Tilted Duster

It's finally done. Wow. Took me long enough, but it just kept getting pushed further down in the pile of WIPs. Folks, this sweater is a WINNER. I'm lovin' it.

Pattern: Tilted Duster by Norah Gaughan
Source: Interweave Knits Fall 2007
Yarn: 5 skeins of Berocco Ultra Alpaca in Purple
Needles: Size 9 Addi Turbos
Started: September 2007
Finished: November 17, 2007
Modifications: The word on the street is the sleeves run small so I increased an extra 2 stitches at either end and only kept with the same amount of decreases.
Ah Fall is finally here and I have comfy alpaca sweater to chase the chill.

That is so gorgeous on you! Your dog is a beauty.

You've made it very easy for me to decide to do the Tilter. And I like the way your sleeves fit, so I'll be doing a few more stitches as well.
