Sitcom Chic

Pattern: Sitcom Chic from Knitty
Yarn: Cotton-Ease in Strawberry Cream
Needle: US5 Clover and US8 Addi Turbo
Notes: The only change I made to the pattern was at the underarm. Instead of binding off stitches on the body and sleeve and sewing them up later, I left live stitches and grafted them. The button was my one purchase from my trip to Churchmouse on Sunday. This is a really easy, fast knit. I think I'll wear this one a lot. The Fray-Check mishap doesn't seem to be too much of a problem. I got a small splotch on one front band and a bigger splotch under one arm. I didn't take any heroic measures, like the suggested rubbing alcohol, for fear that it would harm more than hurt.
