I'm IN!

Here's my sizzle, (completed a few weeks ago, before I saw we were using it as the sexy knit). I used classic elite provance cotton in a gorgeous red, even though it's 100% cotton, it's got a very nice sheen and has washed and worn very well. I wore it to Maui on our vacation and it Sizzled at dinner overlooking the beach! VERY cool and fast sweater to knit, I LOVE LOVE LOVE Wendy's patterns! She needs to hurry up and get MORE out there for us *hint* *hint* I made the smallest size even though I normally wear a Medium or Small since every cotton sweater I've ever made has grown sideways a TON. This one was a tad bit snug when I first put it on, then POOF it fit! LOVE IT! I'm making another one in a dark purple also with the classic elite provance.




Thanks for the tips on the GREAT deal on yarn ladies! I went to webs and bought 10 balls of Silky Tweed for $4.49 a ball. I probably only needed 9, but wanted to have extra as I've been reading about you ladies adding rows and at $4.49 a ball, who wouldn't want an extra one or 2? Can't wait to get the yarn and get started!!!
