Gigi

Gigi

Here's another picture, my daughter kindly took later, which shows the sweater without shadows.

This is Gigi. I made the smallest size and used the colors and yarn called for, Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece in Victorian Pink, trimmed with Truffles. I only ended up needing 4 skeins of the Victorian Pink even though I lengthened the body by about 2 inches, so I have lots of leftovers to play with. I didn't do the bow, I like it without.

The pattern is very well written. I have a couple more Chicknits patterns and I am glad to know they are so easy to use.

The cotton fleece is such a nice yarn, I have bought some more in blue to make a sweater for Kaelen. It's just comfortable to knit. I did wash the brown yarn with vinegar and cold water since the dye ran. It took about 3 rinses to get it to behave itself.
