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.
