The pattern can be found here at Knitty.com and is called Gemini. It's a top down pattern which always causes problems for my figure. Around the neck and shoulders I need a small size but from the bust down I need a much larger size. If I were to knit it according to the author's pattern, it would either fall of my shoulders or not fit in the bust area. What I finally did was start with the second smallest size, and then after knitting about 1/3 of the neck area, I started increasing every row for the front and back and every fourth row for the sleeves. The next time I will start with the smallest size for the neck. Of course, I didn't write anything down. Since I am old enough to spit on the side walk and wear red with purple, I suppose I can get away with "winging" it.
Since this photo was taken on our property, I decided to show you some of the ones we took at the lake yesterday. For any of my overseas readers the Great Lakes are made up of five Lakes--Michigan, Huron, Erie, Superior, and Ontario-- and contain about 20% of the world's fresh water supply.

No knitting done on this trip but when I got home, I continued with my Advent Calendar Scarf.
