1  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Re: Summertime Tunic, IK Summer 07 on: May 23, 2007 08:02:07 AM
i'm using filatura di crosa mille file (it's a mercerised cotton yarn). the shine and drape of this yarn is really really lovely. the picture shows a weird little bundle.. but u can see the part where I did the ribbing.. am just done with the ribbing and now have 11 inches of stockinette to go!  so glad i chose a variegated yarn so that i can have some visual interest... i can't wait to finish this & wear it out!!

pretty!! and worn with just the right aviator shades & attitude too.  Grin great job... ok i promise myself that i will get started on the sleeves of my Flair this weekend.  it's done in a red & i was afraid it might be too 'in your face'.. but we shall see.

aijay.. thank u so much for posting the pattern & tutorial here. i had always loved the steek vest in loop-d-loop book but i really would like to wear a bra & that vest pattern was kinda low... thanks for posting your version! it's a lot more wearable!

to keep it from sliding down the shoulders... would a very thin i-cord or crochet chain across the back (like across the shoulderblades) work? alternatively use a suede ribbon or something.  the bra-straps holder idea might work too unless if the sweater is really heavy, then i think it would sag a little...

it looks like it drapes so beautifully, in the way that silk does... pretty!!

sorry for the delayed response, but frenchnewwave... you can definitely do this! it's basic stockinette in the round, with just a 'k1, p1' rib around the waist section - no shaping, just the use of a smaller needle to create that 'blouson' effect.  hope u get your yarn & join in soon!

hi.. i've started on this in filatura di crosa cotton (in a sorta baby pinks/blues/yellows, not my color but it's stash yarn!). will be fun to join in and see the progress of others. am making the small size but even tho my gauge seems fine it's measuring 32inch (vs 33.5 as in the patt). am not 'grown up' in craftster yet to post pics, but here's a shot of the yarn used Sadhttp://iroiroknits.blogspot.com/2007/05/wip-update.html)

Hi kbelle, I pretty much followed the pattern as is...just took a quick measurement and it is about 17.5 inches for mine.  Since I like it short as a layering piece the length doesnt bother me much.  Do u think it's a row gauge thing (since I never swatch for row gauge Cheesy))

I started this in Sirdar Sublime (merino/silk/cashmere blend) in an Aran weight to match the gauge.  I've finished the body piece but been stuck there without sleeves for nearly a month now... Maybe this KAL will give me a kick in the butt to complete it.  Can't post pics in the forum yet but pics here : http://iroiroknits.blogspot.com/2007/04/sublime-service.html
10  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Re: Clapotis from Knitty on: May 17, 2007 12:16:23 AM
I'm kinda slow to jump on this bandwagon, but have finally started on my very first Clapotis with some Noro Silk Garden in #243 (which is a kind of lilac/pinks/purple/green/black colorway).. Verdict : I love the pattern, dont love the yarn. Am thinking to shorten it as I dont have enough yarn, so I'm still trawling through the 154 pages of posts in this topic to find out how others did it!  More on my blog : http://iroiroknits.blogspot.com
