Green Gable done!

Green Gable is finished! Knit from 1st of September until the 26th, with a partial frogging, and a couple of weeks lay-off to be factored in. Done in Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece in the Prosperous Plum colourway. This was a seconds yarn, which was marked as such due to some uneven dye. There were several spots were the dyed hadn't soaked all the way through the yarn, so there are some whitish spots. It doesn't really worry me, but I wouldn't use this yarn in a special knit, or a gift. I knit the size 36'' on 4.5mm needles, and the only mod I made was to add some hip increases and make it a fair bit longer than the suggested length of 12''. Verdict? I loike it a lot!
