Green Skinny Empire
Skinny Empire by Wendy Bernard
Needle and yarn
US 5 - 3.75 mm
Elsebeth Lavold Silky Wool
4 skeins = 768.0 yards (702.3 meters), 200 grams
WEBS - America's Yarn Store in Northampton, Massachusetts

Lowered the neckline and am doing more waistline decreases.
To help make the empire welt, I threaded waste yarn into the row where I wanted to make the welt to mark the row to make it easy to pick up the purl stitches. Then I did four rows of knit. Then I picked up the purl stitches on a size 1 dpn and knitted them together with the stitches on the needle - kind of like a three needle bind off.
