Introducing M's latest design project: Circley.


She's off to school today, so the modeled shots will have to wait, but after repeated fittings, it looks adorable on her. We rounded the neck a little by adding a couple of decreases at the center, and we decided to make the neckline pretty high up, almost as high as a tee shirt collar.


Making the little purl circles was fun, and definitely less annoying than the colorwork and the umbilical cord trim, which we both decided sucked pretty bad. Of course, it's cold and rainy today, so this little number will have to wait a few days for her official 3rd grade debut, but I'm sure it'll be a frequent flier in the ol wardrobe....

In other design news, Alison has cast on for her Vintage Cardigan test knit, and it's looking lovely in Elisabeth Lavold Silky Wool. Can't wait to see how it goes!
