X-back (take two) is finished!

I X-pected not to have any time this weekend to work on the X-back, so you can imagine my X-citement when I found some X-tra time and X-pediently went to work it. When it was finished, I tried it on, not knowing quite what to X-pect. I looked in the mirror. "It fits!" I X-claimed.

Turned out I was correct -- negative ease was key with the Deco Ribbon. In fact, when I was knitting it I was sure it would wind up WAY too small, but it seems to have worked out well. If you can forgive the (X-traordinarily) crappy quality of these pictures, you can see how it fits.

From the back. The rolls of shoulder fat are mostly the unfortunate result of the lighting.

Nice Job!!! It really looks great, I'm impressed at how quickly you were able to redo it. And I LOVE the color choice! :)

I just checked the tracking on your package. There hasn't been any update as to where it is, since Friday, but the ETA right now is Thursday.

It looks awesome on you. I hope mine turns out as well. I'm about half-way through the body. I plan to run waste yarn through it soon and try it on.

Have a great day,
