I don't have the 50 bootees book, so I improvised:

Here is my loose interpretation of the Child Placket Neck Pullover raglan sweater.  It was a total disaster, but I managed to get through it.  No buttons and no placket neck since I wanted an easier fit:

Here's mine, about 120 yards into it.  Hard to put it down, it's so addictive!

These were the hit of the baby shower, much raved over for their tiny cuteness.  Definitely a bigger hit than the baby blankie or baby bonnet.


Thanks Amobabe!

Yay! Thanks for all the pom pom help.  Sounds like you simply tie a string around fringe, like an open tassel and fluff up.  I was keen on trying to learn the cardboard way since I didn't have the donut cutouts lying around and didn't want to go to Michael's!

Progress on airy scarf so far:

If that didn't work - here's the link. http://pg.photos.yahoo.com/ph/julswei/album?.dir=/9466&.src=ph

Note the nice screw up I made when I started and the two eyelets are too close together.  That was how I figured out that I was leaving out a yarn over.

Progress on my Tempting sweater, I am using wool ease (I live up north, everything we wear is wool) and doing it in two colors, 4 six inch stripes in blush heather and rose heather, if i recall correctly.  So far I have about 10 inches done. It is going along nicely but the constant k2p2 gets old so I have to switch to other projects off and on to prevent burnout. I *really* want to finish this sweater because it is gorgeous. It would probably help if I were a faster knitter. That comes with experience,  I am guessing, or hoping. Smiley

I hope everyone is doing well with their sweaters and  I cannot wait to see all the completed projects.  Grin

Progress so far:

Wow! Love it.  I just ordered the yarn that I want to use for Tempting.  The striping you are doing looks wonderful, but since it is my first sweater, I am too intimidated to do that.  Instead, I am playing it safe and have decided to go with 1 shade of eggplant in a Lana Grossa blend of 54% Merino extrafine, 23% Cotton, 23% Microfiber, which ended being WAY cheaper than the Debbie Bliss the Tempting designer used since I snatched up a bag of 10 skeins.  I think the Cashmerino was running like $8/ball and I ended up paying $4/ball so if I screw it up or hate it when I'm done, it won't be such a costly mistake.
