Look! Something knitted! By me, even!
Heathers...Turtle, I think.
6 balls, plus a teeny bit of an 7th.
Lengthened the sleeves and body quite a bit, 2 1/2 inches or so, because sleeves are always too short for me, and there were so many of these that looked shorter than I would have liked for me on the folks in the Rav galleries that I was afeered of that translating to shorty mcdumpypants on me.
In the end, I didn't really need either of them lengthened (please to note folded up sleeves), and while I love the way this turned out, if I had it to do all over again (which, of course, I DO) , I would probably make the pattern as written. Oh, and? I would make the next size down for a bit of negative ease.
Here you can see the temporary button choice because - SHOCKINGLY - despite it's vastness, the button stash does not seem to have THE perfect buttons. However, I am too damned impatient not to start wearing this thing before I can get to a store, so here we are. One, lonely, temporary button. And not very well placed on the button band either...honestly, this is not actually about to pop off.
