FO-Green Gable
So I lost a skein of yarn while working on my whisper cardigan.(how does a skein just disappear? cats can I please have it back?) So waiting for another one to arrive I did the Green Gable top from Zepher Style. It is a super fast project that is summery yet work friendly. The yarn is Wick from Knit one Crochet two. Really nice feel to it but it does snag a bit so be careful when you knit with it.

I really like the way it came out. I like the way it makes my arms look. I think this is a nice flattering summer top that is nice for work without being stodgy.

Wow! It turned out great! And such a lovely color too. I read somewhere that for this pattern the sizes run small and you need to knit the next size larger if you don't want it to fit tight. Did you find that to be true?

Boy, you are really cranking out the projects lately, eh?!

Wow! This is another top that looks terrific on you!

A question...do you exercise to keep so fit, or are you naturally that thin? You really should hire yourself out as a model!
