thanks guys!

Sinette- love your sweater ..... i think it can look good in the reverse stockinette such as yours, but i didn't find the right yarn that could pull off an entire sweater in reverse!

wow, what a fantastic sweater!  i've yet to brave cables!  I started knitting just over a year ago and have gone sweater crazy  ...... i just finished my 7th sweater, sweaters are so addictive!

Thanks so much everyone! 

MASCmanik- i am also an avid crochetier and just recently took up knitting ( a year ago) and it's easy to switch some stitch patterns for sure.  though crochetting is always easy.  Crochetting just doesn't produce very nice sweaters, although i did manage to make one crochet sweater that i LOVE!

I picked up the Levenwick pattern from Brooklyn Tweed a while ago, and just fell in love with it! I got to work on it right away, and eleven days later I had myself a sweater.  This is the fourth sweater I have knit for myself and i think it's my favourite so far!

It was a fairlt easy pattern, though I changed it a bit.  The pattern called for reverse stockinette, but with te yarn i chose, regular stockinette looked better.  I chose some vintage buttons from my stash, but only had 6 that matched, so for the top button I found one with a brass four leaf clover on it.  Perfect, since I knit the sweater over St. Patricks Day! Anyways, onto the photos:








not a great photo as it distorts the colour, but it shows how it looks with the top unbuttoned

I finally decided it was time to make a hat for myself.  We just moved and I can't find any of my knitting needles!  I did manage to find a pair of straight 3mm needles, but how do you make a hat on straight needles?  Enter in the Drops "Edith Piaf" Hat with Band pattern!  It was a super easy, slightly boring pattern, but I think it turned out great!  The band at the front is a bit thick, but I added a brooch and think that fixed the look.  Anyways let me know what you think!
