So far....

Hello all! I am excited to share with you the progress of my belle "brown belle' as I call it, casted on just over a week ago. I have been following the progress of everybody's belle and was really interested to see how sizewise, the small one turns out to be. I decided to knit a modified "extra small" version with two less pattern repeats on the peplum. I will be modifying as I go along to get a perfect fit (hopefully). I also liked a few suggestions about using 3 instead of 2 buttons and making sleeve increases further apart and I hope to incorporate these into my knitting.

The yarn am using is Jaeger Extra Fine Merino Aran in "Coffee" which I also ordered from Cucumberpatch as suggested by Beverly. I love the colour and the texture.

More details on my blog later. Happy knitting!
