Oh, how I LOVE this sweater! It was quick and easy to knit. I would highly recommend it for a beginner knitter. I enjoyed knitting with the Cascade Eco-wool. (Plus it's pretty inexpensive!) My only worry is that the sweater will pill quickly.
I started a Hemlock Ring Blanket in the same yarn, but if you listen carefully today, you will hear the sound of ripping so I can start another Ingenue or a modified version of said pattern. I forgot how much I enjoyed knitting top-down raglans and this pattern is a great starting point in creating something of my own.
From the book "Custom Knits"
Cascade Eco-wool 1.25 skeins used
Size XS-which gave me a nice snug fit
Needles: size 8
On another note...does anyone have a really good recipe for oatmeal? You know the kind...goopy and thick...the stick to your stomach kind. Thanks for your help!
