1  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Re: New Stitch Diva Pattern/Glampyre sweater on: November 19, 2006 06:15:57 AM
I don't think I'm going to meet my deadline of having my SKB done for Thanksgiving. I have one more repeat of the hip shaping left, then I get to try it on to see if I want to lengthen/widen it more. Then theres the sleeves and neck left to do. I'm thinking of doing the sleeves without the lace, just to draw more attention to the waist lace.

I've finally gotten past the lace on my SKB. I didn't have any problems knitting it, but it was just so long. I got bored with it quickly. Plus classes got busy so I haven't touched it in a while. (Classes are still busy, but I'm ignoring the things I need to do for what I want to do. I'm sick of school.)

I still have one more purl ridge to do on the bottom, I was just too anxious. (And ignore the face. I was making a face at my cat who was staring at me.)

Only changes I've made is adding in rows after joining the V and before starting the purl ridges. I'm also planning on lengthening the lower part of the body and sleeves as I like them longer. The lace part is actually more green. It's a pretty close match to the light green bits in the Manos. And it fits a lot better than it looks. I blame it on my tshirt, which has a slightly awkard fit anyways.

I've kind of stalled on my sweater. Other projects (mainly sewing) have gotten in the way, plus the ever evil college. Now that I have a short break from sewing, I find I missed a yo on my 4th row of lace and yet my stitch count is correct. It's hurting my head to figure out how to add in the yo or decide just to tear out to that row. Hopefully I'll get it finished soon though. It's started to turn cold.

I ended up adding 6 rows (approx 1" in my guage) after joining the round before starting the purl ridges. I think where the end of the neck line ends depends on the size you're knitting and your bust size.

Stormshade, I absolutely love your sweater. I think the color of the beads sets off the whole thing. Gorgeous.

It looks nice without the purl ridges, but I wonder what it would be like if the lace was a different color. (Which is the question I'm debating at the moment, whether or not to skip the purl ridges and switch colors)

Manos del Uruguay in Olive for the body, and Cascade 220 Heather in Turtle for the lace/trim.

The Manos is knitting up well using a size 8 needle, and I kind of like the texture it's getting. I haven't yet knit with the Cascade (I'm at my parents working and don't have all my knitting tools with me) but it looks like it will go with the Manos well. A bit of a texture/shade change. I'll know how much I like it tonight when I get back to my apartment.  Grin

Hey everyone. I swear I've posted on Craftster before, but found none of my usual screen names. Bah.

Anyways, I abosultely love this pattern. Right now I'm knitting in a yarn that I'm not positive will work, but so far it's looking good (I'm just past putting the sleeve stitches on hold) and I'm liking it. The possibility of having to tear it out doesn't bother me right now. I need to get some scrap yarn so I can really try it on, but the sleeves seem to be perfect. Usually a problem for me because I have long thin arms and I hate loose sleeves on sweaters of this style.

I can't wait to get to the lace section of the body. I want to see how the yarn I bought last night knits up with the yarn I've been using. Smiley
