At last! Here's mine:



Caron Simply Soft, held triple-stranded. I really used only a little more than three skeins.

Didnít mod much - accidentally picked up collar stitches on the right side. Then out of laziness I only did about 6 rows of seed stitch - no buttonhole (I plan to use a pin.) The hems were rolling up like mad, so I did a row of single crochet to anchor them somewhat. I like it.

I really, really like this a lot!!  Excellent work!! 

It's interesting how something so simple as a color change makes you see something in a completely different light.  I saw Nob Hill over at Knitty, but it didn't really do anything for me.  Yours, on the other hand, has me considering giving it a try.  As you said - you didn't modify it much, but the color you used just appeals to me more.   Smiley

Again - beautifully done!!

It's the same with me too - a lot of patterns, I would never consider trying, but I'll catch someone else's, done in a different color or with a different yarn, and that makes a huge difference.

Thanks for all the comments!!! This one was fun to do, and pretty fast.
