Sweater for Nina

Ok I finally finished Nina's Sweater. I got the yarn a year and a half ago. When I saw the perfect starter pattern online I was inspired to do it. This used 4 skeins of an acrylic wool mix yarn and size 7 circ.
It took 2 days to knit. I intended to finish it the second day after starting, but took a couple of days off to help son, then picked it back up and did it. Was a fun knit. I used rows of Lilac lace at the top and bottom and an edging from another source.It does not pull in at waist or flare out at bottom but i pulled it in and fanned it out for the pic details on the body form. Picture is taken in the shade and is a much lighter pinks to cocoa color. sure hope she likes it.
