holiday island

I fell in love with the pattern as soon as I saw it: Jo Sharp's Chaise from Book Three, The Holiday Island Collection. I used Classic Elite's super soft Spotlight cotton yarn (really, how do you get 100% cotton to be this soft!), which I won at the Granite State Knit-In in June. The frills are so fun and the three quarter length sleeves are perfect for early fall. There was an error in the pattern and some of the instructions could have been clearer, but I overcame the obstacles and am very happy with how it came out.
