Red Green Gable

It's done! Just in time for crappy, cloudy, looks-like-rain weather. Hence the lousy photos.

This was a really simple and easy knit. I used different yarn, so guess that's why my collar is higher than the in the original pattern. I also added a few rounds of stockinette to the sleeves. Following my great tradition I bound them off a little too tightly - but it's OK, I still have circulation in my arms.

It's not blocked yet, I'll have to wait for sunnier weather, otherwise it'll take days to dry.

Pattern: Green Gable
Yarn: Lana Grossa Estate
Needles: 4 mm and 3.5 mm
Time it took: 15 days

I also ordered new yarn! Online yarn stores will be the death of my wallet. But look at the pretty. It's Davos by GGH. The color is called petrol, it's a kind of dark turquoise. I bought 10 skeins, now I have to figure out what to do with them.
