Pattern: Green Gable, by Zephyr Girls
Anyway, this is my first sock in "real" (teeny tiny) sock yarn - and on size 1 needles! It's gone pretty quickly, and I'm just sort of winging it, so we'll see how it goes. The yarn is knitting up into a great fabric.

I am really pleased with how this came out. It went so quickly and was a lot of fun. I think I'm going to make it again in a summery pink - I think the only change I would make is to go down a size. I have pretty slim shoulders, and this just wants to slip off. Part of this was my yarn choice, which if very drape-y. Also - the model in the pattern photo must have gigantic upper arm muscles - I decreased an inch off the arms and they are still very loose.
- Pattern: Blue Sky Cropped Cardigan
- Yarn: Berocco Bonsai
- Needles: size 10 & 11 clover circs, 29 inches, 10 & 11 bamboo dpns
- Time: one week!
- mods: decreased sleeves, made them a little shorter as well
Also, I wore the cutest shoes today with my cardi - and I can't help but show them off! (I love shoes!)
I've been a little behind on my blogging this week, so maybe I'll catch up a little more tomorrow night. I finished my Green Gable this weekend, so if the weather plays nice, maybe it'll get a day out soon!

Last night, I made some more progress on my Green Gable at Open Knit Night. After I got home, I put it on some waste yarn and tried it on. I think it's going to fit really well. I got nervous after reading some blogs where people had trouble with the sizing, but so far mine looks good. I've got a few more inches to go - stockinette in the round goes fast!
