First FO for blogging!

My first FO since I started blogging. Lots of things started, but this is the first FO. It's my second version of the Mason-Dixon Perfect Sweater--my first one wasn't quite so perfect, due completely to my own inablity to measure. (The sleeves are annoyingly too short!) This one, however, is pretty great:

I tried to take an action shot, but all my mirrors are in rooms that don't have very good lighting, and I decided I was better off putting it on the floor.

The details: MDK Perfect Sweater pattern, size small. About 10.5 skeins of Classic Elite Yarns Skye Tweed in color #1253, Tapestry. It's a bit redder in real-life than in this photo. The yarn was purchased at Elann.

The mods: I made the sleeves & body a bit longer, and changed the neckline. I also went down a needle size from the patter to get gauge. The neckline is very scoopy, which my DH likes.
