Froggy Knits

June 08, 2004


She hasn't been blocked yet, but I was too excited to wait to try her on. Not too keen on the sleeve length at the moment, but hoping after I block her and shrink her a bit she will be just the right length all around. Loved this pattern and would like to give the sleeveless version a try. And maybe this version without the fluctuating gauge, lol.

Project Specs:
Pattern: 4a from Phildar Famille Spring 2004
Suggested Yarn: Phildar Aviso
Yarn Used: Lion Brand Cotton-Ease
Needle Size: US 7(knit a lit' loose, should have used 6)
Gauge: 17st/4in(unfortunately sometimes 16st/4in)

Kate looks gorgeous, I love the colour you chose - its beautiful. I'm sure you can sort out the little details with some serious blocking. Woo Hoo for Kate!

Hey - are we starting to knit the same things? The power of pictures. The hat pattern should be up by the end of the week, the berry hat wont be started for awhile, as I want to finish Grace, but I will get a button going soon, and add your name - that will give you the motivation to start. Won't it? hee hee.

Froggy, I love Kate and I don't think she need to shrink. And the colour is wonderful!
