Snow When? - what's that over my shoulder?

Pattern: Snow White by Ysolda Teague Raveled Here
Yarn:Malabrigo Yarn Merino Worsted – just under 5 skeins of Indigo
Needles: US 9 Knitpicks Harmony Interchangeables

What do I see here?

Mods: Other than my usual modification to add Horizonal Bust Darts, I didn’t do any intentional modifications.  The only unintentional modification that I did and actually like how it turned out was that I misplaced the stitch marker for the hip decreases and so I recentered them over my hips.  I really like how it worked out.

Snow When?

Facts to Remember:  To double check stitch marker placement.  This bite me in the butt twice.  Once it ended up on my butt the second time, I ended up with too many stitches on the back and not enough on the front when I started decreasing for the shoulders.  My totally stitch count was correct every time but not my placement.  Oh well.  It fits great and I love how it looks.

Things to Love:  I love the color.  I have a BLUE sweater!!! yeah and the perfect button down shirt to wear under it.  The weather is finally playing nice for photographs and I had a helpful fellow blogger and malabrigo junkie took these today in West Seattle.  We had a lot of fun visiting Little Knits, catching a bit of knitfiti and hanging out with 2 other fellow malabrigo junkies.
