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!

Non-knitting chatter

I went on a women's only camping trip and it was AMAZING.
