At Long Last

I finished this days ago, but waited for a sunny day to take a picture. This was a fun knit; I highly recommend this pattern! The yarn is Cascade Fixation; I used a little less than 3 balls.

Hipster Done!

At long last, I finished the hipster. It fits nicely, but is *almost* too big. I've only got about an inch of open space between front and back, where you lace it up along the sides. I'd rather there were more space, as there is in the pictures that accompany the pattern. If any of you are still reading this, how did yours come out?

I really don't want the bra to be too big. Seems like it would be most flattering if the lace has to stretch and isn't too relaxed. Did any of you who've finished find that either top or bottom was bigger than expected? I'm using US3 needles and am really glad I didn't go with 4s.

I've decided to wash my swatch in hot water, to see if that shrinks it a bit. That may be all my hipster needs.

Anyway, I'll post pics after I finish the bra. I'm glad to read in your posts that it goes fast. This is a terrific, fun pattern!
