  I knit this a few weeks ago, but didn't get all the finishing (weaving in of ends!!!!) done till today.  I had also added buttons, but removed them because I prefer the look w/out better.  The stitch pattern on the neck edge hides the button holes really well, otherwise I would have kept them on Tongue

I modified the pattern by working in the round and knitting through the back of the stitches to keep the drops in place.  Be aware that this top is very, very stretchy.  The book recommends going down a couple sizes.  I did, but I think I probably could have gone even smaller...it's that stretchy!

I used Cascade pima tencel.  First time knitting with it and loved it!  Thanks for looking Cheesy

Wow!  You guys are all so sweet.  Thank you so much for nice words on my vest. Kiss
Knitty Mcknitknit - I used 3 skeins for size 39

zknits - It's Cascade 220 The Heathers,  color #4010.  It's gold-ish, someone described it as "old gold"

ShannelIsRad - Thanks for the nice words and visiting my blog!
kookymonster - I found mine on sale @ WEBS about a month ago.  Haven't checked recently to see if it's still on sale though???

red_phooka - I did make my actual size.  Very important to fit your bust correctly, because the ribbing in the body will fit just about any size...very stretchy, but the top is less stretchy more fitted.  Make sense???

Thanks again everyone.  Your wonderful comments are greatly appreciated Cheesy

http://i58.photobucket.com/albums/g243/Suesew/back2schoolvest052.jpgI am so glad this is done.  Summer weather and wool knitting is a disaster.  I love all Stefanie's designs and this is no exception.  
http://i58.photobucket.com/albums/g243/Suesew/back2schoolvest062.jpg  I used Cascade 220 and size 7 needles for the body and size 5 needles for the trim around the neck and shoulders.  A pretty quick knit all in all.

6  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Socks in LimeNViolet colorway on: June 06, 2007 01:06:29 PM
Loooooove Lime N Violet!!!  Knit these up for my Niece Alex.  She asked for a pair of green & purple socks.(Hey...I do believe I have that in my stash!)
Used my Lisa Souza LimeNViolet colorway in "Sock".  Size 1 circs, Magic Loop Method - Basic Toe-Up pattern.
On the needles 5/30/07 - Off the needles 6/2/07.
They had very interesting pooling.  Reminds me of Matrix codes running across the monitor Wink

Skully is modeling how much yarn I have left.  I figure I can get two more pair.  One for my 7 year old & a sport sock for me!

YOU GUYS are all soooo sweet!!!!  Thank you so much for all the lovely comments.  

For zknits I knit the size I wear.  I did not go smaller because I looooove the look & fit on the model in Knitty.  I do want to mention to those of you currently tackling this beast to BLOCK this!  It looks really awful before it's blocked.  I gained about 3 inches in the length after blocking and I am so happy w/the fit.

For Iprajogo You have something w/the small needles.  It's time consuming but the fabric achieved is very drapey.  It was worth it in the end...whew!

Thanks again Everyone!

Finito!  Took 2 months to complete, but I am very, very happy with the final product. 


Out of the frog pond, off the needles and now, (regretfully) packed away until winter. This baby took me 2 months to complete! But the Bitch is done & I'm damn happy about that! Close up button detail. I found these fab (very 'tigers eye') beauties @ Joann's. I love'um.





 **In my delirious, euphoric state, I am actually considering knitting a second one of these.....Hello Crazy.

I love the colours you chose for the pouch.  Did you find that when you knit it up, that it was quite thick?  I knit one as well, but didn't knit the lining or the flap (well, I knit the lining, but frogged it) because I thought it was getting a bit on the squishy side.  I used bernat cotton, or whatever it's called.  I also *adore* the buttons you used.  Where did you find those!  They're precious!
First off, Thanks again for ALL the nice words Everyone.

  The Hemp did not hurt my fingers.  It is a little rough @ first, but you get use to it quickly.  I loved it personally and want to make something wearable soon.

For the cosmetic bag, I used sugar n cream cotton.  It's thicker than cotton tots and I think it holds shape a bit better.  I was pretty happy with the thickness overall. 

Sorry, can't remember about the buttons Undecided
