I initially planned to make the Lace V-Neck Pullover from the most recent issue of Vogue Knitting, but the yarn I bought ended up being too bulky for the small needles used for that project. It was so bad, in fact, that the lace work completely disappeared. Being discouraged, I flipped through the magazine for the 1,000th time and found this:
I like the original version enough that I might consider making it sometime, but like my modified version better:
Detail (can't see it too well here, but you can get the idea from the original design above)
As you can see, "Sparkle" is a little fuzzy for something that calls for US #5 needles and accomodates much better to something using #13
The original pattern has long sleeves and with such fuzzy stuff in the summer I thought cap sleeves would be better. I was also unsure about picking up stitches along the neck edge to make the sort of collar that it has until I tried it on w/o and it looked terrible... then I was determined to find someway of picking them up. I also didn't have the #11 circular needle called for to do said picking up, so I used the #10 that I had. The neck edge ended up a bit tighter than intended, but I like the way it fits.
Incidentally, after misreading the original project I wanted to do and then changing projects, I have 11 balls of Sparkle left. It says it is 50g and gives no length. If anyone is interested in a swap please PM me. Or let me know if you have any ideas of how I could use it and not have too many of the same article of clothing in my closet, for while I do like it, I don't LOVE it (as said by Bianca from 10 Things I Hate About You, "There's a difference between like and love. I mean, I like my Skechers, but I love my Prada backpack.")
