Green Gable

A finished project! And just in time because tonight I am beginning a new knitting class at my LYS. This is Green Gable. It was easy to knit, but it seemed to take me a long time to get it done. I used Lion Brand Cotton Ease that was in my stash for a loooong time.

I added some extra waist shaping and length to the body and the sleeves. I also did a single crochet edging around the neck to stop the back neck from rolling. It still wants to roll but it's not as bad as before the crochet.

And here is my Superhero pose...I like the way the sweater looks like this. If you see me walking around with my hands on my hips it's only because the sweater looks better this way!!

Nice work :) I enjoy knitting too as well as making ornaments from beads, flowers out of paper and some other crafts.
