What a lovely pattern Lila is, well done Carrie, I thoroughly enjoyed every single stitch. Especially the Sunday short rows. Having read other comments about sizing, I was a little nervous towards the end because I had chosen to go up a size for positive ease. As luck would have it I discovered my gauge was a little tighter than my swatch, which I left in order to get a more fitted sweater. The result is my Lila is an in between size which is just right for me!

And as for the yarn, oh my what perfection. The combination of Lila and Swan’s Island was a real treat, although I do suspect it’s going to pill on me. We shall see..
