Rogue, Completed

Now that my sister has opened Rogue and pronounced it "a perfect fit" (she also said, "I kind of feel like a Star Wars character with the hood up!"--I'm not sure it that's good or bad), I can show you the worst FO pic ever.

I had it all wrapped up and was about to put tape on the package when I realized I hadn't taken of a picture of it assembled. I only had about 5 minutes before I had to leave the house, so I just dropped it on the floor, pointed, and clicked. Nothing artistic to see here.* I'll do a better job at Thanksgiving, when I can actually get a picture of my sister wearing it.

Specs:
Pattern: Rogue, by Jenna Wilson
Yarn: Bartlett Rangeley 2-Ply, in Blackberry, 6 skeins. Purchased from the online shop formerly known as Knitpixie. (Shut up, Knitpicks.) I loved the sheepy, lanolin-y goodness of this yarn, and have already bought more for MY Rogue. The color was all but impossible to photograph--here it's too blue; in other shots it's too pink--but suffice it to say I made blackberry cobbler more than once when I was knitting this sweater because the color was so delicious-looking.
Needles: Addi Turbos, size 7, 32"
Mods:Added length to both sleeves and body--although not enough on th body, as it turned out. You might notice above that I left the bottom ribbing down rather than hemming it up--I was convinced, even after I added 2 cable repeats to the body, that it would be too short, and as it turns out I would have been right. When I make mine I will add 4 cable repeats; possibly even 5.
Started: Tuesday, September 14
Finished: Saturday, October 15
Recipient: Courtney, for her 28th birthday.

*Except possibly the charming gift tag I made.
