This was a kit I bought from Knit Pixie years ago. I figured maybe I should finish it before summer was over. It is currently blocking - and I think the neckline will lay down better once it is blocked. The yarn is Organic Cotton From Blue Sky Alpaca and it was knit on size 9 needles. I wish I had done it in the round instead of flat (but I didn't feel like trying to figure out the changes that were needed). I started on July 23 and finished today, August 14th. I had to frog nearly 5 inches yesterday - so I would say this is a very fast knit. I'll have to see how it fits after it is blocked, but I think I'll really like it.
I'm a knitter and a lover of all fiber arts. Could there be enough time in the day to design and knit everything you want?? I keep busy by being outside, getting into trouble, and being a general good pain in the ass!
