Fifi is finished!

Today I finished up knitting Fifi. Here are the details...
Pattern: French Girl's Fifi
Yarn: Rowan's Calmer, color: laurel (4 full balls and a tiny bit from a 5th ball for one sleeve)
Needles: size 7 Denise for the body and size 6 dpns for sleeves
Modifications: I made the length of the body longer by 4 or 5 inches. Also, I didn't want cap sleeves as in the pattern. So I knitted the cable pattern 2 or 3 more times to make the sleeves longer.
