Needles: 2mm and 2.75mm addis
Yarn: recycled sienna, in some pink colour (I've had it for years, please don't ask what it is exactly as I have no idea).
Mods: smaller needles & slightly off yarn (see below), I made the roses slightly smaller but other than that I followed the pattern almost exactly.
Verdict? I should have taken the time to skein up and wash the yarn before re-knitting with it, even blocked, it's pretty kinky with slightly uneven tension. Plus cotton glace is maybe a little heavier than the 4ply suggested. I compensated by using slightly smaller needles, but I still think it would have been neater at a smaller gauge.
The pattern was nice enough to knit, lots of st st, but I wanted a break after lace. There's a mistake in the start of the sleeves, but its pretty obvious (so obvious in fact that I've now forgotten what it was...).
It's not especially flattering done up, but with the ribbon tied at the back, all Matilda Jane style, and it's about perfect. I love the flower panel, I may make a scarf or socks based on it.
