Beauty Cotton Pullover
I think this is a beautiful sweater. Perfect for spring. Anyone interested in joining me. I'm deciding on a color today. Beauty

Hey Jill,

I'm new here and have never been part of a knit-along. But I just viewed the pattern and it is lovely and I want in!

I was just digging through my stash a few days ago and found some Classic Elite Provence (I think it is discontinued) Now to see if I have enough to make the sweater or if I need to make a purchase - wouldn't that be just awful

Have you started the sweater yet? What yarn are you using?

Renee

Hi Renee,
Yay! Someone to join me. I haven't started yet. Still trying to finish up a couple of other things. But...since your are joining me, I think I'll order my yarn today! I still can't decide on the color. I'm going to order the Gedifra Beauty Cotton. It looks pretty reasonable. Let me know what you decide.

Beauty knit along
I found somehting in my stash that I am going to swatch up tonight - Berocco glace. I hope I can get gauge with that because it would be nice if the old stash actually did something oter than sit there!

The Gedifra Beauty yarn was quite tempting - especially with that great price. So...if I can't get gauge with the glace I'll be ordering some of it too.

Which colors have you narrowed it down to?

Renee

I was all over the place on the color choices. I really liked the white, but they don't seem to carry it. Coffee and Cream, Marmalade or Peony. I went with the Peony. I hope its ok, I hate too many choices.

Beauty cotton pullover
I got gauge!!!

I ended up using Nashua Cilantro in white... I know, I'm boring and always end up doing the color in the photo. The peony color is very pretty and I'm sure I will wish I had just ordered some yarn before I finish this project. But at least I'm using up some of the stash - righr?

I'm so happy you found and posted this sweater - I would never have found it on my own and it is just the type of piece I like to knit and will actually wear. I am terrible about knitting something up and giving it to one of my sisters.

Thanks again for putting this one in the forum and I think you chose wisely with the peony.

I'm going to Mexico tomorrow to go whale watching for a few days. I hope my yarn comes soon. I can't wait to start!

I dunno about the white, Renee.... I think you need to wear more pink.

Very cute pattern and SO tempting but I have to finish Wicked and the pinwheel sweater before totally comitting to another sweater.

Kelly, thanks for the suggestion of the pink I'll have to keep that in mind

And Margaret, What's the pinwheel sweater? That sounds intriguing...
