Yarn: Merino Bambino, 7.8 balls.
Time: 6 weeks.
I can't wait for winter (or even autumn) to wear this number out - I might even take it to the USA as Chicago is going to be pretty cold I hear.
The sleeves are more puffed than in the pattern photo - but I like puff so that was fine by me. It was a pretty easy knit too. The yarn is a baby wool, and its such an intense red that my camera kept blurring the photos - these were the only ones that came out ok. Very bizarre.
Mods: The only real mods I made were to knit the sleeve and waist ribbing on 3mm needles so they didnt look so tight.
