- pattern: Green Gable (http://www.zephyrstyle.com/catalog/item.cfm/2367447/2628822) from Zephyrstyle.com

- A little less than 2 skeins of Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece

- needles: Denise US6 and Addis US4

modifications:
- I added about 2 inches to the bottom. Maybe it's my extra...*ahem*...padding on top, if you will, but the shirt was just way too short the way it was written.
- I also added an extra decrease to make it more fitted at the bottom.

I really enjoyed knitting this. The cotton fleece is awesome - I'll def be using this yarn again. I'll probably make another one in the near future.

Aww, thanks, everyone! This is my first real sweater, and I'm very happy with the way it came out. I totally recommend this pattern, especially to any first-time sweater knitters!

Whoa mama! It looks great!

:thinking: I think I have a couple skeins of Cotton Fleece in wisteria around here somewhere....

that is gorgeous! I'm really tempted to try that pattern. But as an ADD knitter I'm afraid I'd get bored... :thinking:

well after being inspired by this and reading the G.G knitalong blog I've decided I'm going to commit myself to doing this!

I just bought a couple skeins of this (http://cgi.ebay.com/Brown-Sheep-COTTON-FLEECE-yarn-GRAPE-Unique-Color_W0QQitemZ8278785887QQcategoryZ36595QQssPageN ameZWD1VQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem) yarn. The DH says I'll get bored with it and it will get tossed aside, but I'm reeeeally hoping to prove him wrong!!

The only negative I see about the sweater is that NO ONE WILL EVER BELIEVE that you made it!!!! I can see it now:

friend: "I love your sweater!"
you: "Thanks, I made it."
friend: "Get outta town! You did not make that!"
you: "Really, I did"
friend: "Well, if you say so"
friend {not said out loud}: "Well she must be desperate for attention or somthing to make up a crazy story like that"

:lol:
Seriously, it is terrific and looks awesome on you! Great job!

Great job! I'm knitting one of those myself right now. I'm nowhere near as thin as you, so I hope mine will look half as good as yours!!!

I added an extra decrease as well. :-)

That looks really fantastic. I, too, love the colour and it looks just great on you. I love the sweater but I don't know if it would flatter my 'two babies later' belly :blush: :lol:
