I don’t post very much because I don’t think that I have anything important to say.

But I am very excited because this is my first (non self) published pattern! Thanks to Meg especially and everyone at Classic Elite Yarns for their help and support!

I did a number of modifications to this. The most obvious; full length, tapered sleeves and added about 6” in length and made the shaping more gradual. No ribbing at the bottom edge, I did 5 rows of garter stitch instead.
(I also cast on for the 40 3/4 size and decreased to the 38” size.)
The major mod was to the neck, I decreased 8 stitches each side and changed the back neck as well, I knit up from the back neck stitches attaching it to the front extensions as I knit.

I used Frog Tree Sport, loved the yarn! I love my sweater!

I finally finished knitting this, I started it about 3 months ago but the Christmas knitting got in the way. The yarn was given to me by the nicest person in the world, It was given to her by her Aunt Charlotte who bought it on Prince Edward Island who knows how many years ago.

Buttons, finally!

August 22, 2009

I am so bad about sewing buttons onto my finished sweaters. I finished this one on July 18th! and have finally sewed the damn things on today. I’m not sure how much I like the top now after having it sit on the arm of the couch for a month. And yes it is the same top as the one that I call Cassie made me do it, just in a slightly heavier yarn. (Rowan Silk Cotton).
