Knitted chili pepper

Blocked, finally: The body part.

blocked

Pattern: Serrano by Knitty.
Yarn: Hand dyed sockyarn (superwash) by Rohrspatz und Wollmeise, colorway "Wild Poppy"

After knitting the bodice up and making the first bind-off for the sleeves I noticed that I´ve knitted the pattern repeat WRONG.
Damn!
I had to rip it completely and knit it all up again (not really quick to do on 3.0 mm circs!), but now it´s blocked and will move to the big black box for the next week, as there is some other small stuff to do.

Can only take me another half year to finish!
