FK: Maude - Pictures, Finally

It is a gorgeous day today. I am sitting on my back porch right now, enjoying the breeze and watching the boys play in their new kiddy pool. I will hopefully get a good chunk of knitting time in while they do that.

I have been finished with this sweater for about a week now, and I just have not remembered to take pictures. I was going to have Ben take some, but kept forgetting to ask. So today I decided to use the time control on my camera and get some so I could post them for you!

Pattern: Maude by Diane Mulholland, size small

Yarn: Knit Picks Simply Cotton Sport in "Camel Heather" - 5 balls

Needles: US 4/3.5mm Addi circular
US 2/2.75 Addi circular


YTD Mileage: This sweater weighed in at 8.5 ounces, which gives an approximate yarn yardage of 790. Giving my YTD mileage a new total of 2.46!

I loved knitting this top. It was just enough lace, and just enough plain 2x2 ribbing. Plus I love top down sweaters, as you can try them on as you go and figure out the fitting. The top section is a little loose though. So I might, might do some surgery to remove the top section and reknit it in the extra small size. Or I have enough yarn I might just knit a whole new one and have two.

Or I could get that boob job I've been wanting and fill it out. :P
