Tracy was kind enough to take some pictures of me in the newly finished Trapeze Jacket last night at knitting.

Of course there are some funny shots, she likes those candids. I may put a few on the bottom to amuse her.
Twirling is always fun, or was I flapping?
There, seen enough? Great!
The buttonholes are hidden in the inside of the placket. That made me very happy!
These are buttons I had on hand. I am not sure I will keep them, if I find something better I will defenitely change them.
Overall, the fit is perfect. The pattern is written very well. The top down construction is as perfect a sweater design as you could ask for.
I will say though, that the 1×1 slip stitch ribbing pattern gets very old after a while.
That is why it took me from September ’07 through yesterday to get it finished. Granted, I did put it down in October & didn’t pick it up again until 2 days ago.
I would recommend this pattern to anyone that doesn’t expect to finish a sweater lickity-split. If you like taking your time and enjoy the yarn, the process of knitting, then you will love this sweater project!
