MagKnits Cold Shoulder by Stefanie Japel

Yarn: Jo Sharp Soho Summer DK Cotton in #224 Thyme
What I Learned: Trying on a garment periodically during a project is a good thing. Be very careful with your gauge. Buy an extra ball of yarn, especially if it is inexpensive.
Comments: This sweater has been my favorite project to date. I'm really pleased how it turned out. Stefanie is a wonderful designer, and I love all of her things. I emailed her with questions, and she quickly got back to me. When I did my gauge for this sweater, I thought I was spot on, but I must have been a touch off. I ran out of yarn while I was knitting the bottom edge (grrr!).

Looks great!! Did you use the recommended yarn, or something else? I've had my eye on this pattern myself, but I'm not sure how that one sleeve would work on me, so I might try to modify it to be more like a half-sleeveless tanktop. Anyway great job!

I like it! You did a good job.

Always buy an extra ball--that's my mantra. Just ask yourself, "what's worse, running out of yarn or having an extra ball of yarn?"

have a great weekend!

Love IT!!!! I've gotta knit this pattern now. I've been a bit stalled due to some beading projects that had to be done, and a gift I've got to start, but this will be one of the next projects!

Hi Amy! I'm new to your blog and wanted to say hi since I live (sort of) near you. I'm just north of Galveston and always get a bit excited when I see a "neighboring knitter"!

Beautiful job on your sweater! Take care!

It looks really great! All of your projects always turn out so professional looking. So impressive. Anyway, now I'm flirting with the idea of making my own Cold Shoulder.
