Audrey in Unst





Pattern: Audrey in Unst by Gundrun Johnston
Yarn: Miss Babs Yummy 3-Ply Sport
Needle: US5, 4 and 3 Addi Turbo
Notes: I still haven't blocked this but I can see in these photos that I made the sleeves too long. I think I will rip them out and make them shorter and maybe a bit slimmer too. These photos do no justice to the beautiful buttons I got from Jennie the Potter. They have a faint blue leaf printed on each one. And clearly this isn't the right shirt to wear with this neckline. I'm just proud I finally took some pictures. I didn't have time for styling!

This is my first time at your blog and what do I see but one of my favorite sweaters that is in my queue! Yours looks FABULOUS! I have the pattern, but I can't decide on the yarn, and I'm worried I'm not a good enough knitter to pull it off. Then I worry that I'm not a good enough body to pull it off, um er to keep it ON as it were.

best,
