Mullerslanefarm, I'd call your very dark blue-green one Nereid. It reminds me of seaweed (in a good way)!

Rose Garden is beautiful, Jazzturtle. And your pink batt remisnds me of candy floss...yum...

Loving Vamp also- can't wait to see it spun up!

I too am a spin lurker- but I want to learn, when I'm not studying (or meant to be studying  Wink) something...

Nicolassa, there is no such thing as an overdose of pink.... Cheesy

And crumpet79, Goblin treasure is gorgeous! Reminds me of a Tilli Thomas yarn I've been semi-coveting (only semi- because I can't understand why anyone would pay that darn much for a skein of yarn (yes. I am cheap)).

I want to eat Maraschino Cherry and Clafoutis aux Cerises. And Strawberry Patch is gorgeous as well (soft fruits are just coming into season over here in the UK- had strawberries for breakfast- maybe that's why I'm loving these?)  Grin

dear goneknitsup, Knitalin would be a very welcome part of my knitting life. save some for me if you find any  Wink

The rib is very...obnoxious? it looks and feels good, but it's a bi'ch getting it done. I motivate myself by getting all competitive and speed-knitting my way through it all.

What kept me awake, though, was the shaping of the front, with lots of Wrap-and-turns. It was lots of complicated fun. I think i re-designed the back mostly bc i thought it looked wack having only the front in Stockinette, like a little stockinette island in the middle of all that rib.

Lesson to be learned: dont re-design without re-measuring. as i said, it turned out way big.


Thanks for the advice!

The lace is really flattering too. Nice job and well salvaged!

Inspired! I had a go at the garter stitch one, but wussed out on the bandeau so it ended up as a skull-cap. Hardly worn (not very warm, plus I have big hair and a big forehead). Maybe I should add a bandeau- looks a lot cuter that way!

Good for "breaking in" new flip-flops too!

The amount of times I've spent the summer with plasters on my toe cleavage from new (uncomfortable) flip-flops..

Lovely! Really like the colour. One question- did you find the rib boring after a while? I've been eyeing up this pattern for a while as I think the shape would suit me, but wondered whether I might get fatigue from so much rib. Most of the garments I make have to have lace or cables or something to keep me occupied, particularly when I get to the second sleeve.

I appear to need Knitalin  Wink

So cute! And if it does seem too short, you could always crochet a deep edging on in a contrast colour, or she could wear it with trousers.
