we love Josephine!

Pattern: Josephine top from Interweave Knits, Summer 2007 issue

Yarn: reclaimed cotton from a new Abercrombie and Fitch sweater, bought at Goodwill for ~$3

Size: smallest, for 10 y.o. daughter

Needles: had to go down to size 1 to get gauge

Mods: Knit in the round to armholes. Did a few knit rounds at the hem at the start, instead of picking those stitches up and adding them at the hem at the end. Started V-neck higher. Twisted cord instead of I-cord.

Verdict: I loved every second of knitting this pattern and think the results are just about perfect. Two enthusiastic thumbs up from the knitter and the recipient! It was still the slightest bit damp this morning, but she loved it enough to put it on anyway to wear to the Memorial Day parade and ceremony in town.

I really love the sweater and that it is recycled/upcycled yarn. Kuddos to you (I'm on thrifty knitters @ ravelry and found you from there). Lovely job.
