Thanks! I used "Swirling Pattern" from the Big Book of Knitting Stitch Patterns! I'm obsessed with this book! There are so many awesome patterns to choose from! :-)

Thanks! I know, I wasn't even expecting the to happen with the colors!
Rowan is incredibly lovely yarn! I'll definitely be using it again.

I bought this yarn from Liberty during my trip to London a few weeks ago! My vaycay budget didnt allow a whole sweaters worth of yarn, so three skeins was all I could get away with! ;-)

Im psyched it turned out this well, because the pattern was completely improvised! Better pix coming soon!
 
Check it out on Ravelry! http://www.ravelry.com/projects/voolenvine/wooley-thames!

This sweater is AMAZING! Adding your own personal twist makes it that much more unique! Love it!!!  Cheesy

Go for it. And I wanted to tell you all that I discoverd that if you machine wash and dry wool ease it really softens up and makes it much nicer to wear.

Nice job! It looks so cozy! Wool Ease is great! I knit a sweater for my fiancee a while back with Wool Ease and turned out a little too big. I also threw it in the washer and drier thinking it would shrink... but turned out just like you described... It's so cozy, I think I wear it more than him! ;-)

Thanks!  Grin  It was a really quick knit, and the first time I used cotton yarn!  I want one too! Might just have to knit one up! Wink

For Easter, I knit my little cousin, Summer a revised version of Boheme

http://peapodkal.blogspot.com/2008/07/boheme.html!

I used Lion Brand Cotton Ease in Taupe and only changed the lace pattern. I was a little skeptical about the color at first, but in the end, it turned out very antique doll looking. Her mom LOVED it! *phew!*
Still waiting for picks of her wearing it!!! 

I don't have very much experience knitting cardigans, so this was definitely a good practice project for me, and needless to say very fun to knit!
Enjoy!

Thanks! Hah, it's actually kinda funny. My boyfriend took me to Wal*Mart for the very first time (I know, right?) and was floored by the amount of cheapo yarn they had... I literally spent over an hour touching, feeling, staring it, and in the end, just stocked up! I guess the theory was, if the sweater turned out wrong, I had nothing to lose!  Wink

Thanks so much for all you're awesome compliments! Definitely encourages me to revisit this project again soon!  
I posted the basic lace pattern in a comment on my blog http://www.Voolenvine.com

I really need to sit down and write it out... but for now, here's the basic idea: I will update with something more solid in the near future!!!

I used Red Heart yarn / US 10 needles. CO 100, and knit the body in the round until it was as long as I needed it to be. For the Arms, I cast on 40, *K1, P1 for 1", and knit this pattern in the round:

Main Color:
Row 1 & 2: Knit
Row 3: K1*s1,k1, psso, yo* repeat from * stitch.
Row 4: Knit
Contrasting Color:
Row 5&6: Knit

Repeat.

Then I joined both sleeves to the body and continued knitting the lace pattern in the round, making raglan decreases on every other row. When the neck was high enough I *K1, P1 repeat from *... then BO.  


Hope this helps! I'll keep you posted when I have a real pattern.  Smiley
