Ta Dah!!!!

In a new development here at chez TwoWaters, I give you an official FO! Green Gable, on the blocking towel:

The pattern is extensively modified, for no particular reason other than I felt like it. I made the sleeves longer and the ribbing deeper, and I added more decreases and increases in the side shaping. I tried her on before I blocked her, and she fits pretty darn well. I promise to show posed shots once she's dry.

I also added:

Bust shaping! Without it, knits look...er...unpleasant on me, for reasons we shall not discuss.

All in all, this was a very nice pattern. Very well written, for as far as I stayed with it. I cannot say enough good things about the yarn. This is the first time I have worked with Cotton Fleece, and I am very much in love with it. Even though this was made with factory seconds bought off of Ebay, the yarn was perfect. (Any splotches in the pictures are from wet spots.) There's just enough wool in it to keep it from feeling like string, but enough cotton to make it cool enough for summer. Thumbs up!

Thanks. It's called "avocado," which conjures up images of horrible sixties kitchens. But it's not that bad. I've got my eye on some blue called "Columbine," but I've got to finish a couple of other projects before I can buy any more yarn.
