Sometimes being Wicked can feel wicked good.
Yeah, that's me. Being a wicked dork. But I can't help myself. I am wicked stoked. (Okay, okay, I'll quit the wicked business now...)
This is my third knit from zephyr style. And this is by far my favorite. Heck, this might be one of my favorite knits, period. It's just so wearable. Like a real sweater. Fancy that. I can knit real sweaters that I can actually wear.
Here are the details...

Mods: Quite a few...I cast on for 36-39" bust sweater. However, since my arms are not in proportion to my bust, I stopped increasing when the sleeve perfectly fit my arms (I did about 18 increase rounds instead of 21). And then to compensate, I included short-row shaping for the bust. And of course, I added several decreases and increases down the sides. I have realized the key to knitting a raglan sweater is to try it on CONSTANTLY. It's a pain, but it's the best way to get the most personalized fit.
So what do I love most about this sweater? Could it be the cabled neckline? Could it be the subtle color variegations? Or could it possibly be...
Yup, its adorable pocket-ness. It's wicked cute. (Really, couldn't be helped.)
