Pink lady knits



Finally, a photo of my finished Mesilla! I would like to take another photo shoot at a later date so that I can enter this sweater into the Knitty Calendar Contest. But, as it took a great deal of energy and an even larger deal of patience to get my lovely husband to take this photo, I am not sure I'll have much success with another shoot. We'll see.
Details: Mesilla, designed by Stefanie Japel
Yarn: Mission Falls 1824 Cotton
Needles: #6 Addi Turbos in metal and #6 Addi DPN's in wood
Started: June 26th
Finished: June 30th
Details and Notes: This is the first pattern I have ever bought the recommended yarn for. I was so excited when I saw this pattern that I knew I had to make it as close as possible to the original. I love the colors and the feel and how warm the cotton is, though one thing I learned is that I don't like knitting with nubby cotton at all. I actually changed nothing about this pattern, which is rare for me. It was written so well for my body type, as all of Stefanie's patterns are, that I didn't need to change a thing. This sweater was "premiered" on July 4th, because the colors and the embroidery reminded me of fireworks. Enjoy!
