I love the leaf motif. I'm looking for a pattern like that for my next project! Your combination of textures and colors really works well together. I think I may be inspired to try something similar to yours.

Love the leafy pattern. It looks like it would be too hard fror me. Where don't the sleeves fit? They look fine in the photos.

!Thank you!!! About not fitting... I just couldn't squeeze the full picture into the allowed spot, so I cut off an arm. :-) Still looks ok I guess

Wow - I LV your choice of patt sts!! Can you tell us where you picked them from? I'd love to use a few of them - even in socks! THX. I showed my project to Myra at Sts Midwest lat month; I'll have to get a pic taken and post it. After ripping it all out twice I finally knit it as a vest. I was a lace-wt, thick & thin cotton (no stretch!!) plied w/a rayon overlay, boucl, so I had to use it doubled. And it biased... hence the ripping out twice. It was a nightmare to frog but I was determine to use what I had started with instead of going for something easy, like Cascade 220! But I'm taking a break now and knitting knee socks, That's what made me think about your pretty pretty patt choices!!! RKR

Hi! Thanks for the comments! I used the Japanese 300 Stitch collection book. Can't tell you the author since it's in Japanese. You can see what it looks like here: I ordered it from a link on craftsy. But I think Amazon has a similar one under "300 Japanese Craft" Lucky you going to Stitches!
