Honesty!

This is Honesty from Knitting magazine supplement (April 08). I'm really happy how it turned out too, it fits Kristen really well. I went down a needle size to get better gauge, using 3 3/4 instead of 4mm.
The yarn is Nashua Cotton dk, colorway #258 (these ball bands never tell you a color name, but I'd call it a sky blue, although it looks a bit darker in these pictures.

I'm hoping to get some modeled shots of Kristen later this weekend, but she's out playing right now!






Next up? I think I need to get back to some 'old' WIP's! Two things I'd like to make progress on are for me, that being 'Spook' and 'Woodland (the cabled cardigan from Rowan).

Such a sweet sweater for a little girl. It's just girly enough without being too frilly. I'm anxious to see the modeled shots.

Oh it is just beautiful. I want to knit that up too. Thanks for the tip about going down a needle size. Perhaps I will knit a larger size and knit on smaller needles too. The color is just beautiful. Are you going to show us how it looks on your daughter.

Beautiful! I'm in awe of your incredibly even stocking stitch - I truly think it is the hardest stitch to do well!
