I used a pattern from Zephyr Style calle Green Gable. I was extremely happy that there was absolutely no finishing. Seaming is the death of me! It was knit in the round with raglan arms(?) The only thing I did not like about this pattern is the endless stockinette stitching. But unfortunatly I like the look of it. The lace panel was very simple and I think that this is a great project for someone looking to get into lace without going insane reading a chart.
Here are some pictures of my latest SEX (stash enchancing expediction for those of you not familiar with that acronym)
And of course, I have new WIP’s… One is a Baby Albert for my friend’s baby. It’s a boy and I didn’t want to go with the traditional blue so I went for a moss green. I also bought these cute doggie buttons. The other is another Orangina by Glampyre. My LYS was having a 20% off sale so who could resist buying some Mandrine Petit. I’m in love with this yarn! It’s 100% egyptian cotton. Soooo yummy. It’s a great sub for Rowan Cotton 4 ply which I made my first Orangina in.
I do have some socks that I’m working on but I’m so ashamed of the progress that I’m not posting any pictures. I’ll let ya see them when I have at least one pair complete.
