Hey guys, I finished mine! Hurrah! I made a couple of tweaks which I noted on my blog. But overall, I love this pattern. I am already planning a new one...

Hey everybody! I just seperated the sleeves from the body, so I guess that means I have a lot of stockinette rounds ahead of me...

But so far I am really loving it...

Okay, that just might be AMAZING!

Well, I cast on...



So far so good. So those of you that are further along, how is the shape of the sweater? Do I need to plan on adding more decreases or is the existing pattern shape fitted enough as is? I am a busty gal and I don't want this to end up being box-y on me.

Hey everybody,

I am starting to regret my choice of alpaca yarn for this project...and I haven't even got the yarn in the mail yet!

What say you? Do you guys think that cotton is better than wool for this project as far as shape and drape?? I am so lost...

Craftsters rule! Who else could figure this fancy-schmancy bag out...

What about doing a basketweave-type stitich for the top of the bag in a dark brown yarn or some earthy yarn, like bamboo, to replicate the effect of the wicker. Kinda similar concept to the Berocco pattern Illanna24 shared.

I am definitely going to have to add this project to my list.

I am sooo in on this KAL. I just ordered my yarn from elann.com.  I decided to use the Peruvian Collection Pure Alpaca. I picked the Cedar color:

I have yet to try this yarn so I am interested to see what it will be like knitted up. But the appeal of a soft alpaca yarn against my skin was too great to pass up, and the price isn't too bad either. I did the math and it looks like this yarn is spot on when it comes to the weight and gauge the pattern calls for. So we shall see how it goes when it gets here! Yay!!

Thanks for the compliments!

Glaistig, I think that your stockings turned out darling! Reading your blog, did you ever try shrinking your stockings? If you did, How did it go??

Looking on Eunny's blog, she added an elastic post-knitting too. It looks like she just added a thick elastic band behind her ribbing. If you go to her blog you can see how she did it. I might try it that way.

I have been lurking for a while, but y'all inspired me to do my own stockings. Ta da!



I used Dalegarn's Baby Ull in brown, light blue, and creme. I think I need to add some elastic bands to the top so they stay put. Any suggestions??
