ETA: i guess i should elaborate: i'm doing the two tone shrug but ive altered it as im using homespun and ran out.  and i hate ribbing.

thanks for all the compliments about the stripes and the sweater!  its a bottom up raglan, I can definately see how a top down would be even more fun because you can see the shaping as you go for the sleeves etc. whereas with a bottom up its kinda just a few tubes of stokinette until WHAM its all assembled and you do the yoke, then bam you're done! Wink

Yeah i loved reading the book Knitting without Tears, i read the entire book cover to cover, including the patterns.  but when i got down to work and reading the patterns, i found i got really confused and had to read and reread over and over again to be sure i got the step right.

28  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: a man appreciating the knitting... on: May 05, 2007 10:26:57 PM
thats hilarious.  more than once i've sat down on the bus or skytrain and taken out my knitting, only to see the person next to me either take out a camera or their own knitting, or both, and its always a bit awkward and hilarious.  I wonder what his gf thinks of the picture! Smiley
29  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Blue sky royal alpaca price question. on: May 05, 2007 10:11:33 PM
hey guys,
I don't really know much about blue sky royal other than its rare and luxurious.  is $37.31 before tax CAD a good price for a skein?  just wondering if i should hold out for a better special or if i should buy it.  also wondering if it would work for the swallowtail shawl. ANY adivce on this is much appreciated. Thanks! Smiley

Here is my sweater.  It took me about 20 tries to try and stand on my tip toes and keep the camera steady, thus my expression.  I couldn't for the life of me get the neckline photo clear.  ah well, you get the jist, i've Always Wanted a sweater with this neckline.  I LOVE IT .. the sleeves are just a bit baggy, but its nice because being from the north its awsome to have a sweater that you can use to layer over your thermals.
Pattern:
I used the seamless raglan sweater from EZ's Knitting Without Tears.  I found the pattern itself relatively easy to get, though her conversational style of pattern writing was a bit frusterating *am i the only one that just wants to get to the point sometimes?* the next one i make from this pattern will be a total breeze though, because the principles are so simple!  I strongly recommend it for anyone who wants to try a big garment, but is a bit intimidated, as her style of writing is very reassuring.

Yarn: Noro Kureyon obviously in colourway #88

It is SO warm! horizontal stripes are not that flattering, but who cares!




ETA: its not blocked and the colours are bang on!
