jackie they are all beautiful. you are busy busy busy! it seems like we have picked a few of the same projects and yours came out stunning.

can you tell me, were you able to gauge the andean silk correctly for the Anouk? im swatching with cascade 220 SW which is light worsted like the andean silk is, and when i try adn get the gauge to match the material is see-through. the cascade needs to gauge at 20/4inches it seems to look decent. what did you do about this if it served a problem for you?

My gauge turned out almost right on. Blocked, mine turned out 7.75 in across the chest, so 15.5 in around. I used US 6 bamboo needles, even though the yarn wrapper said to use US 7-9 needles for a 4 - 4.5 spi gauge. I think since the needles were smaller, the material didn't turn out see-through.

The seed stitch dress hem curled until I blocked it. Now it's flat as could be, thank goodness!

ONE IMPORTANT PATTERN NOTE: I made the back left shoulder strap 2 inches longer to accomodate the button. I found that if I hadn't done this, the height of the left shoulder while buttoned would've been noticeably shorter than the right shoulder. In hindsight, this makes sense because all four shoulder straps are knit the same length. You'll have to see what happens when you get there to that part of the pattern. The pattern was easy to follow until I got to the shoulders. You'll find the front shoulder instructions mislabeled, so just switch them and remember that the buttonhole goes on the wearer's left shoulder and that the sts that get put on a holder for 3-needle BO need to match (front back right shoulders). The back shoulder instructions are OK, except that, as I mentioned above, you'll need to lengthen the left back shoulder to accomodate the button.

It's a pattern featuring their cashmere blend yarn.
I modified the edging: instead of doing curled up stock st edges, I did long-tail CO and knit the first row (WS) to create a purl ridge on the RS. After that, I followed the directions and did stock st. Depending on the yarn, it might take more than one purl ridge to prevent the edge from curling up.

Everything is fabulous! Your clapotis is really pretty, and I :heart: the matching hat.

You used Lion Brand Microspun for that blue and orange top? How many balls did you use? I have 5 skeins just sitting here waiting for me to do something with them.
