Peppermint Ginger Top

Project: Peppermint Ginger
Pattern: Ginger, designed by Kim Hargreaves (free on Ravelry)
Yarn: Rio de la Plata handspun kettle dyed 100% wool
Yardage: 560 yards in stash
Needles: Size 7 & 9
Cast on: July 16 2011
Notes: Another project with China group on Ravelry. The yarn is a lovely single spun, thick and thin, very lofty at places, I hope it'll bloom nicely after a wash. The pattern is for a summer top, with crew neck in front and V neck in the back. Since I'm knitting in this heavy wool yarn, mine will be more like a layering piece. It will be a little longer than the pattern, with V neck on the front and back. Looks like I have enough yarn for some sleeves too.

Adorable. I like the layering can be worn throughout the year that way.

I love it, especially the color!

Your yarn reminds me of the big lollipops that I used to desire at the county fair. Even your title sounds tasty today. Give that sweet pooch of your some pets from me and a sniff from LittleDog.

Is it just me, or are you are posting a whole (or nearly whole) sweater every couple of weeks?

This one is lovely too. :-)

Thanks ladies!

@Kathy, Denise, this one is a quick knit. Once I start the next cable project I'll be back to my a-few-rows-a-day self ;-)

@Ally, I should post a new picture of the Rascal soon!
