Pictures at last of Anne's finished Silver Belle!

Apologies for the pictures. I have no idea why they are so unbalanced...they only look like this once loaded. These are the first pictures I've taken, so I don't know what I'm doing!

Knitted in Rowan RYC Cashsoft Aran. Smallest size knitted, gauge of yarn 19 not 18, but still too big. The pictures show this...Anne made me try it on and as you can see, even though I am 36" bust and have a long sleeve top on underneath it is close to fitting me.

On Anne: Front:


On Cathy:


Trying this on was certainly an educational experience for me...I was thinking of knitting it in Rowan All-seasons cotton at the medium size thinking that at 17" instead of the called for 18" this would give me just the right I'm thinking knit the smallest size and it should come out about perfect!

One more of Anne: she thinks it is way too big for her, but I think it is perfect:

I am Anne's daughter.
Thanks for sharing mom's knitting =)
I do think this is a very nice but complicated pattern.

Amazing! Now I'm thinking that I should have chosen some lighter colour for mine, it looks much more elegant in gray. Mine is more "sporty". ^^ Great job!

It looks great on BOTH of you! It is amazing how it fits both sizes!!

Thanks so much for biting the technology bullet and figuring it all out! The pics came out great!!

I am loving the grey! Can't wait to see you SB Cathy!

Very Nice Work Anne!!

I do love how it fits both of you!

Beautiful job Anne!

I have found that the small is pretty big....for a while I was nervous that I should have made the medium, but I am close to finishing it and I think it will be great.

Look forward to seeing yours Cathy!
