It's Coming: Isabella the Back

Here it is almost finished. I have 3 more inches to go and then I will finally be done with the back. I started this project on the 4th and am now just finishing up the back. Hopefully the front will go a bit quicker, because of the lace panel in the front.

It is a lot of stockinette, so it gets a little on the boring side. I made a few mods to the pattern to make smaller shoulders. I didn't like how wide they were so I increased the shoulder decreases and am hoping it will turn out well. I'm usually to scared to make any changes, but I thought I would go for it this time. Lets hope it works out.

I'm with you--I'm usually scared to make changes but then after I see the finished product, I usually wish that I had. So I think it's a great idea to go for it.

Thank you for your comment! I live in Munich. When have you been here? I have never been to the east coast - my sweetheart lives in LA. What a coincidence - today I thought about starting Isabella as well! Never heard of the book, but will look it up on Amazon.
