Firebird Tempest

I started this one back in May so it only took me about 3 months to finish.  That is so ridiculous since it should be a quick knit.  The actual knitting time flew by, I just put it down for too long in between the knitting and finishing.  I love this colorway of yarn so, so much!  I love Socks that Rock too, so it is pretty much the perfect sweater in my opinion.  I did end up having to re-knit some of the back as it was too long for me, but other than that I think it worked out pretty well.  I took some length off of the sleeves to try and get it to a 3/4 length but they came out just about right for a full length sleeve, maybe a tiny biIMG_3071t shorter.  It's fine for me.  I left the hem and cuffs plain because I like the rolling of the stockinette.  I wanted to take a picture with my hair down and some makeup on but it just wasn't happening, so this is what you get ;)  The number 8 on the back is still there too!
