Pattern: Green Gable by Rachel Iverson and Sarah Johnson at Zephyr Style
Yarn: Brown Sheep Lamb's Pride Cotton Fleece in Candy Apple....used 2 1/4 skeins
Mods: followed suit with everyone else on the GG knit-along by adding 2 sets of waist increases (which turned out really nice!) and added about 2 inches in length (VERY glad I did that otherwise I would've had a cropped-top!).
All in all a very nice pattern!! The result is such a wearable garmet! I actually finished it last weekend but just got to weaving in ends and blocking this weekend. I'm very excited to wear it to work on Monday. Actually, I'm wearing it right now and it's not nearly as soft as I thought it would be....a little itchy even! I think this would be a cool pattern to knit with hemp because I've heard that stuff gets really soft!
Also, the new Summer Knitty is finally here! I was a little surprised at the content....I guess I was expecting more summery things. But there are a few patterns I really like. I definitely want to make theses:
And these I think are really fun but don't know if I'll make them anytime soon (mainly because I haven't graduated to sock-making yet):
Lickety Split (I've always wanted socks I could wear with my flip flops....just around the house of course! LOL!)
