Anna's Ingenue

When my godsister, Anna, saw my Ingenue she wanted one of her own. The deal was she'd buy the yarn and I'd make it for her as her birthday gift. Well it is done and blocking and hopefully will be in her hands by tomorrow. I know it isn't the same as seeing it on someone but I wanted her to be the first to wear it.

I used the Ella Rae Classic from Little Knits - perfect substitute yarn for this sweater. I also made a few mods from mine - I added few more increases on the sides and I made the sleeves longer as per her request. This took 5 1/2 skeins.

Yesterday, Jennifer, came over to knit, have some lunch, and visit. She asked what you might be asking after reading this - what is a godsister? My godsister is my godmother's daughter - we didn't know what to call each other years ago and this is what we came up with. I also have a godbrother.

By the way, thanks for all your kind comments about my Slinky Ribs.

That was indeed a beautiful salad yesterday (?). Would you be willing to share the recipe for the balsamic dressing?

It really isn't a recipe...I just do a 1 to 3 approximate ratio balsamic to olive oil. 1 Tbs balsamic/3 Tbs olive oil. Some salt and pepper. That's it. It also had dried cranberries in the salad.

You are such a sweet godsister! It is a lovely sweater and I am sure she will cherish it :)

What a great present!

My good friend and I decided we are sisters by choice. Over the years, my daughter has told people about her "cousins by choice" and she always gets puzzled looks. :)
