Yes, my Fangorn Forest EFA is finished. The photo does not begin to do this masterpiece justice. I am so pleased. I like the fit of the shoulder and sleeves, after modifying the armholes and sleeve increases. I like my made buttonholes more than the k2 tog, yo buttonholes in the pattern. I like my straight shoulders more than the sloped shoulders of the pattern. And I like the surprise I added:
Pockets! On-seam pockets (and I had enough Magpie to make them in the matching color, thank G-d!), just big enough for a key or a handkerchief or a tube of lipstick (wouldn't want to stretch them all out out now, would we?) or a place to hide the One Ring (so Gollum can ask, "But what has it got in its pocketses?"). Of course the temps this week will climb to the 80's, only because I finished my spring jacket, in a spring color, with blooming flowers and trees in leaf. Moral of the story: you can't win for trying, or as gardeners say, there's always next year (G-d willing).
