That 'Green' Girl....

Yesterday I was finally able to put the finishing touches on my 'Green Girl'..3

What can I say..... I love everything about this little project!!! The fact that it's knit from the top down which makes it seamless, BONUS.... The gorgeous Cascade 220 yarn in that amazing Apple Green colourway that I chose to use, AWESOME!!! The little turned over collar, single button closure and super sweet puffy sleeve, DIVINE!!!! The fact that I only used 280grams of yarn for this whole project, yes that's right less than 3 skeins which is less than $20, WOW!!!4

I love finishing a project on a good note, how about you????
