I Love This Sweater!!!

I am so happy with how this sweater came out! If I seem a bit surprised, it's because it went to our finisher looking like this...
It was not in any condition to try on. She did an AWESOME job blocking it and putting it together. She gave me the best compliment too. When she brought the sweater back to Westport Yarns, she picked out yarn to make one for herself!

To recap, the pattern is Jordan by Wendy Bernard (Knit and Tonic), I made the medium and just went into the 3rd skein of Euroflax Linen in Caribbean Blue. Linen is supposed to soften with washing/wearing. There are quite a few people who expressed concern over the "feel" of the linen. It feels kind of coarse when you knit with it. It didn't bother me though. It was noticeably softer after it was blocked. I got gauge on a #2, I knit loosely. Michelle was on a #4 or #5.
