So, I've designed patterns before, but this one, I'm really proud of.  I really love this and will be perfect for when our daughter starts school (uniforms, navy, khaki, and black).  I used five balls of Rowan Denim - and I'm hands are still indigo - and I want to work with this yarn again soon. 

Guernsey patterns are so cool and being so close to the water (Savannah, Georgia), the nautical/fisherman thang is just natural.  Hope you like it!

This is just great! You really should be proud of this. I love the detail, it really makes it.  And your daughter looks very studious and academic; totally ready for school!  Smiley

Thanks!  I feel like this is my first real pattern.  At first, I was afraid that the wee one might not like it, thought it might be too boyish, but she loves it and I think it works as a good unisex pattern.  She keep talking about, "I'm going to wear this to school!"  At least I did something right this time.   Wink
