it's great to see such a variety of colors.

great pattern, fun to knit, and even better to wear.

i used 4.2 ball of valley yarns longmeadow, and knit the smallest size on US5 needles (i'm a tight knitter). i'm usually a 34 bust, and this fits just the way i had hoped. more details on

Wow! It looks great. I was cautioned by my knitting instructor to avoid this one because of the neck. She said they were often hard to keep from stretching out. Did you have any trouble like that?

thanks for the compliments!
rae- i wore this all day and evening yesterday, and it still fits perfectly. i knit it a size smaller because i wanted a snug fit.
