my newest project!

I received my pattern ( Lillies Little Sweater-- by Cottage Creations) in the mail yesterday from The Naked Sheep http://www.nakedsheep.com . I ordered this pattern on Thursday Sept. 14th and rec'd it Monday the 18th, WOW fast service!!! I'm impressed and will definitely order from them again. Oh, and the shipping and handling are always free!! Take a peek and see what they have! I'm not affiliated with them, just a very satisfied customer!

Just a note too, the pattern comes in a little book form as you can see 24 pages in all and color photos inside.

So, I started this in the evening last night( while watching the Yankees game) , look how far I got!!! The Paton's Canadiana is a nice soft acrylic, the color is pastel parade. I am making the 12 months size and the pattern states I will need 460 yards of worsted weight yarn, using size 7 needles. The pattern ranges from 0-3 months, 6, 12, 24 and 36 months. It starts with the hood, down to the ribbing at neckline is where I'm at, then on to the raglan shaping, all top down!! YEAH!! I think I'm going to like this one!!
