1  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Re: "Lucky" from SNBN knitalong on: March 17, 2006 08:13:23 AM
FINALLY. I can't believe I finally finished it.

I started this sweater about this time last year, got frustrated and put it away for more than six months, picked it up last month, finished the knitting but had to steek because everything was way too wide (still is a bit, I think I might take a little in on the sides, but I am just so glad that my Irish self managed to get this thing ready for it's St. Patrick's Day debut. Smiley

gratz on fininshing your zippered raglan abinka!!!.. I notice that your sleeves did look a little wider than mine did. Maybe i knit tighter. I had to go up to size 10 needles. Which color did u use? I use kohl..your bf looks happy in his new sweater..(^_^)

I believe the color I used is Coffee. It is LOVELY. Brown with some maroonish parts in it. My sleeves did come out pretty wide. I think I didn't really understand the instructions of about the increases on the sleeves, so I spread them out around the sleeve instead of putting them all in one place (then I realized that that part of the sleeve would be the armpit, but that was after I already did the first sleeve so I just kept with my method). It's not really noticeable I don't think unless you're a knitter haha.

Your bf is pretty cute too. Wink

Haha thanks, yes he is quite the cutie. I'm a lucky girl.

You're lucky your bf agrees to wear wool tho..  ;-)

Yeah we both eat vegan, but he doesn't mind wearing wool (he inherited a lot of vintage suits from his grandfather and they're all wool). I don't mind wearing silk but other than that I'm much more of a stickler than he is. Still knitting with that Manos was such a dream and it made for such a smoother finished product, it is definitely tempting! I'm just hoping for future projects (I'm obsessed with fair isle at the moment) that I can find something with cotton or silk in it for blocking properties but also acrylic to help the garment keep its shape, that comes in lots of colors. Sigh.

Haha that was way too much info.

I finished my Zippered Raglan! Modeled by my bf, the recipient. I don't know what I did wrong with the collar, I'm going to add a hook and eye to make sure it stands up the way I want it to. Otherwise I'm quite happy with it.

These socks are awesome. Do you have a pattern/chart for them?

Nerdy hot!!

The best kind Wink

Too true!

Yum I love that pattern. I've been looking for an argyle vest that was flattering like that, although the steeking and crochet scares me a bit. I'll put it on my "to do" list!

Here's my Kate. In retrospect I should have used yarn instead of embroidery thread for the face (or I should get better at embroidery, haha)

Has anyone who made the Men's Zippered Raglan found the sleeves to be kinda wide? I'm working on the sleeve right now, the body looks like a perfect size but the sleeve looks really wide around...I'm not sure if it's something that'll get better or worse with blocking. I'm making the smallest size. Any advice would be awesome.
