Forecast complete

I completed Forecast on Tuesday this week. Time to knit the sweater took about 2 weeks. It is the fastest sweater I've ever knitted. I used Cascade 220 and size 8 & 6 needles. I blocked it kind of aggressively to make it a little more roomy. Also I used 5 buttons, rather than the 10 recommended by the pattern. I prefer to wear it unbuttoned. It is just a little too warm for me to wear a wool sweater buttoned up (I do live in a relatively mild climate) The weather forecast is for a bit of rain this weekend so I should be able to get some wear out of the sweater :)
