"In Like" with this FO, Not "In Love"

I purchased some Berroco Pure Merino a while back hoping to knit up Collins by Thea Coleman. When the yarn was in my hand it had too much drape to it and wasn't "crunchy" or "crisp" enough for the pattern. So I opened up New England Knits and selected the cover pattern called Middlefield Pullover. It is an easy knit and kept my hands busy. I tried it on a lot and made quite a few adjustments to the pattern which are on my Ravelry project page.

I should have realized the ribbing might not be the greatest with "the girls"...I think I'll be futzing with this whenever I wear it. I like the FO I don't love it.

I think it looks great on you as well! It looks like a good marriage of yarn and pattern.

I think you look lovely in it! You may not like the ribbing but I doubt anyone else will think it's a problem. And I love that Collins pattern!

Um,HELLO !!! If you've got it flaunt it. And you have an amazing body from what I can see. Your chest size is no burden, many women would kill to look like that in a sweater.

Don't complain !!! The ribbing looks really nice. If you want, you can give me some of what you've got ;)

You and the sweater look very nice and the knitting is beautiful but I know just how you feel. Sometimes "flaunting it" makes me feel very self conscious.
