It's a very Spring-ish color to me so, I say make some cute capris or shorties!

I am making Stacy of Hearthfire Yarns an Oriental Lily out of her "Jewels" on licorice twist and its the perfect weight - nice and swingy, not heavy and hanging at all!!!

Here is the Oriental Lily , I have made the skirts long for a dress or shorter for tunic length shirts, short sleeves, long sleeves, bell shape sleeves like the picture, or just straight sleeves. Also you can change up the bodice with a different stitch instead of just garter stitch - I have done garter, seed stitch, bamboo stitch, and half linen stitch and made the hem and cuffs to match. Its a really cute and SIMPLE pattern - once you finish the very top of it, its all knit in the round.

Here is Stacy's "Jewels" one before I did the sleeves for it -


And I made this one for my daughter's bday in September, as more of a long tunic with a pair of SMSS convertible baby bloomers under it -
