I finally got the ends woven in on Nicole and so I can officially call her an FO. It's a bit ridiculous to leave something that literally has 5 minutes worth of work left sitting in the unfinished pile for months . . . but sometimes, if I admit the truth, I know exactly why some projects linger for so long. In the case of Nicole, it's because once I blocked her and tried her on I knew I'd never wear her. She doesn't flatter my figure, the neckline is too square for my taste, and I can't find anything to wear under her that looks like it's supposed to be there. I still like the design and I think the finished project is very pretty, but it's not my style. Yet another example of knitting I love but that doesn't fit into my wardrobe/look. Too bad.
