I started this at the weekend when my sweater fell out of favour, and I was waiting for short circulars... (I'm still not getting on with the magic loop).

I'd already found this pattern on t'internet, and decided that it was a quick project and I needed to knit it! :)

I chose to use some silk mix yarn I got from a charity shop, and smaller gauge needles - 10's I think.  I really like it.

No problems at all, just a nice gentle knit.  I actually bought this pattern  :o - I know, I usually choose free ones! It's $5.40 but I think I'll be knitting a few.  I'll also be looking at some of Grace Mcewen's other patterns.

Very pretty - lovely colour too. <3

I learnt the magic loop recently but wouldn't use it from choice - it's a bit long-winded. :S

Nearly finished this, but waiting for a reply from the Pattern designer.  The recommended length is 42.5 inches, and it seems a tad long  :o

Had a reply off the designer, and fingers crossed I'll have this finished today.  Not as helpful as I would have liked, but I will work to my own length.
