FO - Green Gable

Right, sorry about the terrible photo, (please ignore the pans!) but here is my Green Gable, from Zephyr Style. A great pattern, but I had to make some modifications. Finished, mine was 4 inches longer than the pattern suggested! James suggested this maybe because I wear my jeans quite low. I also had to add some increases to get it to fit over my hips!

Thanks must go to several Knittyheads for help with this. Firstly Margaret9 who purchased and sent me the Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece (New Age Teal) for the project - thanks so much. It is my new favourite yarn! Also Miss Squeezie and Yoshimi for advice with finishing the sleeves.
Sorry guys I would link to you if I knew how! I'm just a beginner at this blogging stuff.....

Oh Nell, it's so pretty! I've seen several green gables in the last few weeks and each one makes me want to try the pattern.
I just started my blog too, it isn't terribly exciting, but stop by when you get the chance:)
