fo: sizzle

Pattern: Sizzle by Wendy Bernard (Kit & Tonic)
Yarn: Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece in Robin's Egg Blue
Needles: size 5 circulars (size 4 for seed stitch edging)

This knit took me 2 weeks start to finish, which is fast for me. My fingers got tired from knitting so constantly with cotton. I knit a size small and will block this for a little more ease, hopefully. I'm very glad I converted it to knit in the round, as I avoided a lot of purling and was able to try on and modify as I went. I lengthened it by a couple inches and I'm glad I did so; it's none too long in my opinion. I'm happy with how the piece came out but I'm not sure if I will wear it--I don't wear low-cut or fitted tops very often.
