This is the Wendy Phillips Sideways Knit for Adults that I made a long time ago. Natalie grabbed it on one of her visits and I never saw it again. Its really a pretty sweater. I think I used Magic Color in the center and on the center of the sleeves but the rest was the colors Wendy used if I remember right. I loved the sweater but it was pretty warm for South Carolina which is why I let it go to Natalie, after all she lives in cold country.
After 4 tries, 4 rewinds, I think I have finally figured out how to rechart the BSJ from http://www.junebugsplace.com/ to fit any size. It finally makes sense. I haven't finished it yet but yesterday morning I rechecked my figures one more time and knitted it. Whoops, there were a couple things that weren't right so I sat down with it and figured out how to change those things and tried again. I knitted both in 30 minutes once I knew what I was doing. Of course, now I have to finish it and my fingers are crossed as I write this...I hope I don't screw it up now.
