a new school year is calling, and I'm filling with anticipation. I get a "wipe the chalkboard clean" kind of feeling as we approach september. I've got the need to: tie up loose ends; get things in order; check a few more things off my summer do list; and start the school year fresh. so it's in that spirit that I'm using august as a wrap up month. there will be a few projects I've been meaning to share, completing projects that have been on my mind all summer, and savoring the last bits of time with the boys. first up...a neighborly wrap up.
many months ago, I started and completed my grown up girl neighborly. special thanks to my friend larissa for not only the pattern, but the soft as can be chocolate and the noro that brought such anticipation and delight to the project. I loved everything about this project, and it fit my model just perfectly! thanks for modeling m.q.!!
Pattern: Grown Up Girl Neighborly, based on Jennifer Casa's Neighborly
Yarn: Brown Sheep Lamb's Pride Worsted, Chocolate Souffle- 2 skeins and Noro Kureyon, #156- 2 skeins,
Needles: US 8 circulars, US 8 double point needles for armholes, US 6 circular for neck ribbing
Mods: I wanted to lengthen the sweater a bit, so before starting the noro striping, I completed the neck ribbing and armholes to ensure I had enough chocolate yarn. I then added length to the body of the sweater with all my remaining lamb's pride yarn.
