Another finished Picovoli!

I finished my Picovoli a few weeks ago and was going to attempt to get some better pictures before posting here but haven't gotten around to it, which means I probably never will.....so here it is!


It was so much fun to knit, I'm so glad this pattern was picked for the KAL and I was able to participate. I used KnitPicks shine yarn in blush and US5 needles and it ended up being a little too big on me, but definitely wearable! I have a lot of Elsebeth Lavold Cotton Patine yarn that I bought for another project but I don't think it will work for what I had in mind so I may make another Picovoli in that yarn. I think it would be great in that yarn. I love the Shine yarn but I wish they had more colors, but you can't beat the price.

For more info and pictures, check out my blog.

It's cool that it looks just a cute even if it's not so tight! The color is good for you too. Of course you could always get a more neutral color of shine and dye it (maybe) I haven't done any dying yet, so I wouldn't know if that's a real option or not, probably wouldn't still 'shine'?

whatever, I'm rambling as usual, but it looks super cute on you, that's the main point of this comment!;p

Very adorable and excellent knitting... looks so professional! Do you mind telling us what size you made for reference? If you use the Cotton Patine for the next one, you'll definitely need to go down at least one size since the yarn's somewhat larger than the shine (just my opinion)...

It looks great and the color is nice on you...even with extra ease.
