thanks for the comments, guys!

great job! how long did they take you to knit?

i knitted the red one first. it took me knitting all throughout spring break, after which i decided to take a break from it and i picked it up again a few weeks later and finished the rest off in about a week. the green and white one took a week to knit up.

Cute!  I'd love to see how they look on you. Smiley

i'll post some action pics later. i need my boyfriend to get home from work so he can take pics of me wearing them!

i've been knitting for a little over a year. i knit these as part of the beginner top-down raglan-along, which you can see here:

Must've been a little scary when it was time to attatch the sleeves and match up the color stripes!  They're both very cute!  ^_^

actually since it was a top-down raglan, there was no seaming! everything was knit in one piece. one of the reasons i LOVE the pattern!
