1  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Re: Tilted Duster from IK Fall 07 on: September 09, 2007 09:25:12 PM
Ok, she's all knit up and blocked, with ends woven in... now all she needs are buttons!



Of course, now that she's done, we're in the middle of an absolutely lovely week of warm, sunny weather so I'm totally not motivated to go button shopping (or even trolling my mum's button jars).

The only mods I made to the pattern were to make the skirt a bit shorter, as I am rather petite and wanted to maintain the overall proportion.

I used Cascade's Ecological Wool... so far I'm really happy with it. Nice to knit with (I llike hints of lanolin in my wool... makes my hands soft!) Totally impressed iwth the yardage; I knit this and the Back-To-School Vest from Fitted Knits out of just over than 2 skeins. Not quite soft enough for next-to-skin wear, but somehow I don't think I'll be wearing the Duster without a shirt underneath!!! LOL.

I'll post an action shot when I have the buttons sewn on...

Alrighty... front and back done, about 3" up the sleeves (as always, I'm doing both at once... seems to go quicker for me).  Hopefully I'll be able to get the sleeves done this weekend!

I can't wait to have a new sweater to wear for fall... :-D

I LOVE that pattern! I may have to see if I have anything in the stash that'll work (or go yarn shopping LOL) ... and finish the two sweaters I'm working on at the moment, but then I'm in :-)

Oooo. I'm in!

I cast on for this last night with some Cascade Ecological Wool in a that I'd had in the stash for a while (I'm definitely loving this yarn so far). I'm nearly finished the back; I suspect that this project will whip along fairly quickly... :-D

My gauge was a *little* bit off, and I didn't want to go down a needle size because that would make the fabric a bit stiffer, so I'm following the directions for the 32" size, and it should come out at about 36" when I'm done.

I totally can't wait to see some finished versions!

Ooooo... I love that bag!!! And the bear is super cute too!

That looks awesome! I have one on the needles as well (also KnitPicks and also dyed with Wilton Cake dyes). Still just working on the centre section...

And I too work on like 6 projects at once. I'm determined not to let this one last for a year though!

I just started knitting this last night! Yours looks awesome, I love the green! (And how the pink underneath totally shows off those back eyelet thingies).

Hopefully mine will turn out as nice!

Wow! I agree with the earlier poster who said that the light colour really made the pattern pop. I like this version way better than the one in the book (and I really like the one in the book). Time to start shopping the stash to see if I have yarn that'll work for this!!

Wow, I LOVE that the cable goes all the way around!!

And the little hooks (or are those buttons) that you have down the front are awesome! Perfect for that weight of yarn!

Oooooo! Me likey! I just got this book the day before yesterday... I can't wait to get a couple other projects finished up so I can start this!
