Ariann Photoshoot

Yes - she's done!

I went out to breakfast this morning to meet up with some friends beacuse Stacey is in town! I had to show off my Ariann of course! Here we are:

Stacey came to visit!

Lolly, Stacey, Jolene (and baby Joe), Coleen and I had a grand time catching up and sipping coffee. Some of us even knit! (not me!)

After our coffee and conversation, I had Coleen take a few photos for me. This is taken right outside Panera. Don't you just love the 70's style architecture of these strips malls - ha!

Ariann

Stats:
Pattern
: Ariann from Chick knits
Yarn: Classic Elite Skye Tweed in Upland Green from Webs
Needles: Size 9 Knit Picks Interchangebles
Buttons: Purchased at Cloverhill yarn shop
Alterations: I made this sweater a size larger than the pattern. It actually came out a little big in the end.

I love this pattern - it's so simple, yet has a striking effect. I did have to rip back twice because I'm an idiot and forgot to stop yo'ing at the raglan shaping - oops!

Of course I had to have John take some more when I got home...

It looks beautiful. Good job to John and Coleen for their excellent pics! I absolutely love it, and think I may have to cast on for an Ariann of my very own soon! This is definately a case of, I liked it in the pattern, but I LOVE it now that I have seen yours! Thanks for mentioning my CPH, you are too sweet.

Hey there - your ATC swap partner checking in! I loves the Phoenix card, very creative and complicated! I am having such fun reading your blog. I met Lolly in 2006 during Maryland Sheep and Wool, so it was pretty funny to see that same picture from her blog over here, too!
