Ta da. I love this sweater and wore it all day today and still love it. It's the green gables pattern (from Zephyrstyle) - it knitted up very quickly and it fits great! I am very happy with it.
The celebratory glass of vino- it's good to have an excuse once in a while : )
I don't know if the lace shows up, but you can see it in yesterday's post. I really enjoyed making this and I might make another one. This is before the blocking of the lace. It still rolls out a little bit at the top, but I don't care. One thing- I was wondering if I could feel the 20% wool content....I felt a bit itchy a couple of times today. Still not enough to make me stop loving it.
Pattern: Green Gables
Needles: Size 6 (pretty old metal ones) and 4 circulars
Yarn: Brown Sheep cotton fleece, color dusty sage
Comments: quick knit from the top down- great fun.
I am currently obsessed about knitting a skirt, Indigo Ripple to be exact. I have to figure out a yarn as the one in the pattern is discontinued...I need skirts, but I don't know about the practicality aspect, but...who cares : )
