I started a little something yesterday.
This is Girl Friday. That is the back. So far, I have completed the 4 inches of (just shoot me) 1x1 ribbing and the first pattern repeat. I am very pleased with the pattern thus far. I actually saw this sweater on the designer at SAFF and ironically, I had just printed it out the day before! I have opted to not do buttons for the closure but to use a shawl pin instead. I ordered a gorgeous shawl pin off of Etsy today so I'll show you some pictures when it gets here.
I am modifying it just a bit since I am using a DK weight yarn instead of a worsted weight. I am doing the width size for large but the height size for medium so we'll see how that works out! I didn't want to use needles that were too big in order to get gauge so I'm going to knit a little bit of a bigger size. Sounds good in theory, right?
The yarn is Knit Witch Ancient World in colorway Apollo. I thought about going with Diana for the colorway but I really love this browny-gold color!
