I really loved working with YOTH Daughter – it’s got such a sheepy, wooly feel to it, but it knits up beautifully, as well – it feels soft, warm, and light, all at the same time!  The color is so natural that it really goes with everything.  My only thought is maybe I should have made the sleeves a little wider – they are a perfect fit when I’m wearing a t-shirt, but a little tight if I want to wear a long-sleeve button-down shirt underneath.  Other than that, I wouldn’t change a thing about it!
