Hey, it looks great, and I love the colorway! And actually I really like it over another shirt, like a corset-style vest or something. I'm currently on what I'm assuming is the boobage area, after the ribbing where there's some ribbing and some stockinette, just a few rounds before the first round with bindoffs. So maybe I'll finish and post this weekend, depending on how much time I have to knit. I did just score a set of LOTR dvds, so maybe some intense knitting is coming soon.
I'd take a picture now, because when my DH last put the camera "away" he put it on a shelf I can't reach! So I'll need him to get it down for me a find a new place to keep it. (he's almost a foot taller than I am!).
I am loving how soft this yarn is and how it is knitting up. I'm right at about 8-9 inches I think, maybe a little more, I just eyeballed it. It looks really narrow, but the ribbing has some major give, so I'm confident it will fit me, if not it will go to my 11yo daughterm who is a couple of adult dress sizes smaller than I am. So far though I'm loving how this is turning out.
Mooshie, when do we get to see your finished pics?? How's everyone else doing on theirs?
Looks great! Is that the boat-neck version? Was it hard to figure out how many to cast on and increase?
I have to admit I still haven't started mine. I found the thread for the Pretty in Pink Knitalong and got distracted by how quick and easy it looked. Since it was going to be my first sweater, and I already had enough nice cotton yarn on hand, I decide to give it a go. I still plan to make this one though, I really like it!
Thanks for the welcome! The colorway on the cottontots in "verry berry". It's a variegated of white, light pink, darker pink, and lavender. You're color pink is really great halloweennut! And Mooshie, I agree, we need to see the finished pics...
Ok, I know I am kinda replying to myself, but I cast on this weekend on this. When I was digging in my stash for cotton yarn I found a WIP in Bernat cottontots and decided to frog it and use the yarn for this tank. The cottontots is soooo much softer than the sugar n cream, and it's still 100% cotton. I had to go buy a size 6 needle, and couldn't get a 24" so had to go with a 29", but it seems to be working ok so far, as I cast on for the M thinking that if it's too small for me I can give it to my daughter. After knitting about an inch I realized I had twisted it when joining the round, so I had to frog it and start over. but I'm restarted and as soon as I get enough to look like I've actually done something I'll post a pic. So glad you started this, as I have been wanting to try my first sweater, and this is a small project that should go pretty quickly, even for me.
omg omg I am so glad I saw this! I was going to make the top down raglan my first sweater, but due to the season and what yarn I already have on hand I am doing this one first, then I'll give the other one a shot. This one looks alot more like "instant gratification"! or very nearly anyway. Last year I was at Michaels and they had sugar n cream GIANT POUND skeins for $5 and I bought a couple of white and one in a tropical pink/orange/yellow.... All I've made from the bright colorway so far is a bib and burpcloth, so I should still have plenty... I'm so excited Im going to get all my stuff together right now and take it to my saturday knitting group today!!!yay! Thanks!!
That looks really pretty, have you done any more on it? I would love to give it a try, but I am getting ready to start that top-down raglan as my first sweater, and haven't tackled cables yet. This is very cool , though!
