(Finally) Finished Object Friday

Remember that inch or two of black ribbing?

Yeah it was actually purple.

I managed to finish this Fair Isle Tam late last night, and it's blocking now. Though I brought the needle size down from a US 7(4.5mm) to a US 4(3.5mm), I still fear it might end up too large. I do have some elastic I could weave into the ribbing a la Techknitter if it comes to that... If it swings the other way then I've got myself an extra Christmas present.

Anyway, here's a picture of the guts:

And that's about it. My FO for the week, although I'll probably tune back in at a later date to model it for ya'll.
Joining in with Tamis Amis today.

Happy knitting!
