Finished Sahara

I know, I just don't try to be creative on the titles anymore, do I? The Sahara is done. It is a little tight in the bosom area, but I think it'll be okay. (Though I might consider adding another few rows of pattern around the collar if I change my mind later.) Anyway, here she is:

Specs:
Pattern: Sahara from Stitch Diva
Needles: Size 6 and 4
Yarn: Pima Silk from Misti Alpaca. I used exactly three skeins for the small size. When I say three skeins, I had about three yards leftover. (I had a fourth skein, but didn't have to use it.) It's a nice yarn, but doesn't stretch as much as cotton usually does in my experience which is why I think the bosom is a wee bit tight.
Modifications: None

I know, I still owe you modeled pictures of Bonsai, so I'll try and get those and some modeled picts of Sahara up sometime next week.

It's been a rough week. My uncle passed away early this morning, so please keep my family in your thoughts. Thank you.
