Well, I wore the Lillian on Friday, and it just didn't look or feel finished to me, so I decided to put the ribbing on. I think it looks better now. It took more yarn then called for that or the ball of yarn I used was short. I already have 2 requests for this sweater ;) Both my daughters want one. And I will make them, it won't be until next summer that they'll be able to wear it. But I think this would be a fun project to make in the winter, it would give you something to look forward to eh?
