FO-Aleita Shell
This is a quick project that I did so I can have a new work shirt.It is the Aleita Shell from Interweave Knits Spring 2008. I did it in Euroflax Sport Weight Linen. It was a very easy pattern to follow. I did have to go down in needle sizes to make it fit me. I used a size 3 throughout to make it fit. I never sized up to the 6 like the pattern called for to make sure it would fit me in the bust area. I really like the way it fits now. I am wearing a padded bra in the picture. If I had gone up in needle size It would have been too big. I really liked this yarn. The color is so rich and intense. It does soften up when you wash it. Don't mind the pink shirt I just needed a shirt it was what I was wearing today.

That looks great and so does your butt in those jeans. (Not in a weird "coming onto you" sort of way but in a "man I wish I looked like that" sort of way). LOL It looks great on you.
