Grevillea Gradient Done!

I finished up a quick knit of my hand spun Grevillea Gradient. It worked up fast in the aran weight yarn.

 I made the body 2.5 inches longer than the pattern stated. Even though it was supposed to be cropped, it was going to be entirely too short for me. The original modeled shots in the magazine had shirt tails showing, and many projects in Ravelry did, too. I took pictures with shirt tails out as well as in. I like it better with the tails tucked in. I'm glad I lengthened it a bit.
