Thanks for the kind stitches on my BBD finish. I am going to try and make it to AC Moore tomorrow to pick out a frame and I will be sure to share the final finish. For me, picking the frame is the hardest part of the whole process.
After tackling my first baby sweater, I decided to make something for myself that would be fairly challenging so I could stretch my knitting skills. I think I saw this pattern somewhere on the whirlpool that is Ravelry and loved the color contrast and that fact that this pattern was multi-functional so I went ahead and bought the pattern and some yarn.
For my Cosette, I chose Madeline Tosh DK in Golden Hickory and Bark for the contrasting picot trim. Since it's primarily stockinette, I thought it would be a perfect vacation project because there weren't a lot of tricky details to keep track of while chatting with family and friends at the beach. The shaping is done with short rows and wrapping stitches and that is why there are so many stitch markers - they've started to chime musically as I move the piece around the needles.
