Ms Marigold

I have started Ms Marigold but put it on hold for while as I wanted to knit Isabella which I more of a summer top. I really like this but fear I may have to frog back some of it as there is a slight flaw in the fabric and it is right in centre of the front. I am using Debbie Bliss Baby Cashermerino in cream for the body and an dusky pink for the ribbing, neck and ruffles.

Thanks for letting me join, I'm Sittenknitten in western Colorado. I have Wicked on the needles in Mission Falls 1824 Cotton. It's knitting up very nicely, and I really like the nubby texture from the yarn. It does, however, make my fingers a little sore after awhile, probably something about the way I hold the yarn and needles. There's another Wicked in my future in Cascade 220 for the cooler months, but for now, the cotton is cool and comfy to wear and I'm ready to coast on through the body and "get 'er done!"

I have the pattern for Green Gables here, still deciding on which yarn to use.
Thanks for the inspiration here, KAL's really help keep me from having too many projects going at once.
