Rtgrrl, that looks beautiful. I like the smoother silhouette without the purl ridges. I'm making notes for my next sweater. What kind of crochet edging will you be doing?

Just a simple single crochet around the neck, sleeves, and hem.  Smiley

edit: I AM DONE Cheesy

I finished the knitting bits!!!! Cheesy 



What's left: crochet edging, and blocking and weaving ends. I won't finish tonight but I might be able to wear it Friday. I'm so happy, I love it! Cheesy

I finished the lace bit on the body! Here are some pictures of it actually on me (to give you a better idea of how it looks without the ridges). I think it definitely removes a lot of the bulk of the sweater. I'm knitting the smallest size, and it is working out perfectly  Cheesy





I also thought of another few slight modifications I"m doing.

1) I'm only doing wasit shaping at the sides and eliminating the darts, and increasing less frequently. When I knit it up the first time, I thought it was too flare-ey and not very form fitting.

2) Increasing for the sleeves starting at the elbows rather than right at the end of the lace, and increasing less frequently. I am a small lady, so smaller, daintier things look better on me.

3) Possible crochet or picot edging at the neck? I haven't decided on this one yet.

Here is a picture of my second attempt sweater with no purl ridges. I only have a small bit of the lace done, I hope you can see it! Smiley

More progress! Almost done with the first sleeve.

Size Small. It's a little bit flared on the bottom and oh so slightly loose on me everywhere except my bust  Tongue

I've finished the body!




Knitting the small, it fits my bust perfectly, but the waist flares out a bit and is very loose. I am making the long sleeved version, so it will look more appropriate a) once the sleeves are on and b) once it's blocked properly.

Getting there! Smiley

Photo time!  Cheesy



Working it in size small. I love this pattern. Love love love love it. The cashmerino is woking out wonderfully, good stitch definition and it is so lovely to touch.


Also: funny story! I went into Tapestry Craft today to buy some more needles for this, and showed the lady behind the counter the pattern, and she was all "Ooooooooh." I hope she is on craftster and if so, I hope she finds this thread! Smiley

I'm joining the flower petal bandwagon! Just cast on yesterday in Plymouth Royal Bamboo in color 04 (pink). It's quite chilly here in Sydney at the moment, so I'm hoping spring comes soon so I can show it off. Smiley  I, too, was a victim of the confusing increase, but not from the actual stitch itself; i really just think that particular line could have been worded a lot better and a lot more clearly.

Anyhoo, here is my progress after one full night of work:
