Finished Summer Shell

At last! At last! I've finished Karen's sleeveless summer shell!

Pattern: Essential Shell by Chris de Longpre- knittingatnoon.com
Yarn: Cascade Yarns Sierra, 80% pima cotton, 20% wool
Color: White
Needles: 5US
Started: March 26, 2006
Finished: May 16, 2006

I deviated from the pattern by making the arm holes smaller and the neck straps wider.

Some of you might remember that I first knit this shell back in February. I knit it with Berrocco Cotton Twist and the gauge/pattern was way off. The first shell I knit was huge! But I persevered, made some changes, and knit it again.

And it fits! I'm thrilled!

Congratulations on the finished summer shell. You put your heart and soul into it and it turned out beautifully. Karen looks amazing in it too.
