Cast-On Cottage & Needlepoint Garden in Roswell, Georgia

7-8-11 - done and worn and very poorly photographed! I love the way this fits!! only other modification was on the sleeve decreases - I did 7 sets of decreases every 10 rounds - started the garter edge at 28 cm (90th round)

6-28-11 - done with the body; need to do the trim and the sleeves. have to say I LOVE the short-rows and the eyelet details along the bottom! (and the color of the yarn really is true-er to the bottom photo - wow, my kitchen table light is REALLY yellow!!)

6-16-11 - split off the sleeves after knitting add’l 4 rows (so I only knit 1 more row after the sleeve split, before the last row of radial increases) - now ready to start the short-rows. love the way this is going!!

6-5-11 - happy to report I had the willpower to wait! this is a great pattern - very clearly written and I love the way the eyelets are used for shaping the fronts and backs.

5-8-11 bought the nuna today - LOVELY shade of gray - this yarn is so pretty it’s going to take all my willpower NOT to cast on before I finish one of the other two sweaters I have on the needles!
