Wendy/Heather Essential Stripe

Pattern: Wendy's Essential Stripe
Yarn: Cascade 220, color 8420 for main body; Casdade 220, color # unknown for small stripes; and some beautiful handspun variegated I was gifted by Heather.

Great pattern, very easy to follow and fit to size. Wendy gives LOTS of options for striping, sleeves lengths, and neckline finish.

Sitcom Chic

Pattern: Sitcom Chic, Knitty.com
Yarn: Cotton Tots, Bernat

I love this sweater, because it ended up just as I had hoped - a warm, cotton, feels-like-a-sweatshirt sweater. It's great for running around town and I'm very happy with it.

I learned after the fact that I've been doing my yarnovers all wrong, so the eyelet detail is not as noticeable as it is supposed to be, and I lengthened the sleeves to full length sleeves, instead of 3/4. We'll call it "artistic license!"
