I used Patton's grace in cardnial on size 5 needles and it took me about a month and a half to finish it (I had to take many breaks from the endless stockinette stitch).
I am really pleased with it! Now if it weren't 95 degrees outside & I could wear it......
I can't wait to be twins Sandra! Maybe next time you are in Decatur!
Haze- I had no clue what I was doing with the neckline!! There is a post on craftster that was really helpful! I will find it & post it here!
Yahaira- It is cotton. I was only hesitant to wear it as I am in the GA heat/humidity where the less layers you wear the better. It was 95 degrees today but with the humidity it felt like 101. Yeesh!
I did wear it to dinner & the movies tonight though! It was only 85 degrees then!! ;)
Great job & thanks for the inspiration.
PS, I *LOVE* the Sublime Stitching curtains in the background. CUTE!
Erin- the knitting on 5's is slow but it is nice & mindless. I knit this while I was working on a few other projects.
DK & Amy- you guys could TOTALLY do this!! It is a basic knit, purl stockinette stitch til you come to the drop & bind off. Seriously you guys could do it!!! :)
I will always be majorly jealous of both of your embroidery skills!! My stitches just never look as nice as yall's!
Oh & Amy thanks for noticing my curtains!!
