I made this with Mission Falls 1824 Cotton in a soft, sagey green. It's for my daughter-in-law's b'day in September, but I may break down and give it to her early. Hope it fits! The pattern is Something Red (http://knitandtonic.typepad.com/knitandtonic/2006/02/if_someone_aske.html) with obvious modifications.

That is so pretty. Are you an advanced knitter? I would love to try that but, the hardest thing I have done is socks.

Really pretty, and I love the sage green.

May I ask what size you made? My DIL, a size ten, thinks she's too fat for garments like that.

I have to tell you I got a chuckle from your question. I am not, by any stretch of the imagination, an advanced knitter! This pattern is really pretty easy. If you can pick up stitches and work yarnovers and M1 increases, you can do this. Socks are definitely harder.

I made somewhere between the 32 and 34 for my dil, who is tiny -- a size 6. A size 10 sounds just right to me. I'm sure it would look cute on her.

It's a way if increasing the number of stitches on the needle. Here's a link to Amy's videos on increases:

O.k. Thanks! I think I used this on a dish cloth because, I remember bending my finger and sliding the needle in for the loop. I'm excited now. Just have to buy some yarn. Wish me luck.

I finally gave this to my dil for her b'day. I was a little nervous about the fit because I hadn't been able to try it on her as I worked. But I think it fits great, and she loves it.

It looks really good on her, Slim. She's a pretty girl, and the color is just right on her, too.

Hi Slim!

What a nice little sweater! How in the world did I miss this one?
I dunno! I have a hard time keeping up with all the talent here at KH! The Whatcha Knitting section is so chock full of marvelous things! If I just blink I miss something great!

As usual, your work is impeccable! Thanks for the great photo shots!
