Not really a new FO, but an update on my Engineered Seams sweater now that I've tried it on. 

The Sweater Project: Part 2: Swatching and Mathing and Hoping 

If you need a measurements map for keeping track of and working out your measurements, I have created a color coded and black and white version. You can download them from the Ravelry group thread or here: 

We talk about working on your swatch, doing some basic math stuff, and casting on!
