Pretty happy in red

I finished Flair on Friday, and I am pretty happy with the results. I used cotton ease in red, and I got the buttons from Joanne's.
I knit a size small because I only wanted a little bit if overlapping, and I knew that it would fit me better in the arms.




I really like the shape of this sweater, but more than that, I love knitting from the top down with no seaming. This is a great knit for a beginner. It is really easy, and it took me about twelve days. I will be making this again.

I can't wait to show you what is on the needles now.....stay tuned!

I read your blog quite often but don't comment much.

I LOVE this project that you just completed. It is so beyond me how you did so quickly. I wish I knew how to do that. I love it... the color and everything about it.

Hey there, it's your Mainer Neighbor in Auburn again. Your sweater is absolutely FABULOUS!! Great Job! But my big question is did you make your daughter's hat in the previous post and do you make one "big girl size". If not where did you find it? I just adore it.
God Bless you & your family,
Beckie
