Full View - Naragansett

Well, yesterday was warm enough for me to wear Narragansett and I took a full length photo so you could see how it turned out. Since the test knit, the designer has tightened up the neckline which I think I would prefer...I found myself futzing with it so much I just had to take it off. I'm going to see if my godsister likes it and if not, I think I'll frog it and reknit with the revised directions. Thea (aka Baby Cocktails) has amazing designs and I was thrilled to be part of the test knit. Update since this morning's post - I asked my godsister to try it on and it fit her perfectly - she has broader shoulders than I do so the neckline was PERFECT! It was a win/win...she got a great sweater and I got to give her a surprise gift (and I won't have to frog it). The pattern is great and with the rewrite I think I'll make one for myself.

I'm with kathy b. I think it looks great, but if you don't think you will wear it, at least it's going to a good home!

The sweater came out great -- and good news that it found a good home. I've got the pattern and yarn for a Baby Cocktails sweater....time to move it up in the queue!

Very pretty! You did such a great job knitting it!

One of my friends knit the Cranberry Capelet and it looks really nice.
