Hello Silver Belle

As promised, a photo shoot of Silver Belle.

Another project resulting a tad on the large size, but I still adore it! I especially like the over sized buttons. To get the desired look, I purchased white shell buttons and turned them to the Wrong Side!

My next sweater will be knit a size down, apparently I need to check my gauge thru out the project????? Every garment is still a learning experience for me.

(Sorry for the lack of design detail....DH must have not been in a zoom mood today. I will get a better shot soon for posting)

Miss D! It's gorgeous! I bet it's been nice and snuggly warm with the chilly weather recently. Mr. Diva took some lovely photos.

As to the sizing issue - what kind of ease are you factoring into the garment? I've learned that knitting something to your actual measurements will result in a garment that is horribly large!
