hello

i have been planning on knitting tivoli since summer, and finally started last week, and i found this site. i had printed out the old pattern and started on that before i found the Picovoli pattern at magknits. i love the picots edging, so if this turns out well i may have to knit another with the new pattern. i think that it is a really versatile pattern that can be worn a lot. i am up to the decreases, and so far it is a really great to knit. you can't beat the top down all in one piece construction.

I am using brown sheep company cotton fleece. the yarn store didn't have three skins the same in any of the colors that i liked so i got two skins of a dark teal, and one of bright green. i plan on knitting the top with the teal and then the bottom green. we well see how that works out. .

i also used yarn-overs in place of the knit to front and back increases so that there is a lacy bit at the shoulders.

here is a picture of my progress. sorry for the b ad night photography. hopefully i will have better pictures next time.
