molly ringwald - first WIP shot

Yarn: Knit Picks Merino Style in cinnamon
Needles: Size 6 Clover Takumi

I can’t remember whether I got row gauge for this one, because it seems really short. Though having to add a few extra rows of ribbing is not a big deal (especially since I am at the point where one may lengthen or shorten this sweater) but I like being right the first time around… well, I can dream at least.

The magazine picture is not terribly flattering but I like the one made by Amanda of Sticks and Tones.

PS. Just seeing the name Molly Ringwald at the top of the page for the duration of the post is making me want to rent Sixteen Candles. Is this bad? Hmmm.
