Beautiful! What type of yarn is it made from?  I love the varieagated yarn with this pattern.  It really makes it look different from the original.

Finally finally finally finally! I'm so done with looking at this purple yarn stitch after stitch!





(Excuse the cat, he's kind of gross)

I kind of wanted a wider neckline, so we'll see what happens after blocking.  The purl bumps turned out better than I thought they would, and to be honest I can't believe I even did it... it's my first sweater!

Rosered- Great job on your first sweater!  It's fabulous!
As for the cat, well, at least he got into the picture... I'm sure that was his only aim.

badbadrubberpiggy - I believe most people using the Tilli Tomas needed extra yarn for the lace sections & the purl ridges.

Thanks!  I had read that, but was hoping that it was those who were making the larger sizes.  You're supposed to be able to make the large using only 2 skeins, but I'm running out with the extra small.  Seems like an error in the pattern.  I know the skeins are sold by weight, maybe I just have extra-beady skeins.  It'll be very close, too.

I've decided against buying an extra skein.  It'd cost me the price of the yarn, plus shipping for only one skein since nobody near me carries it.  Not worth it, since I could almost buy the yarn I need for Wicked with that money.  Plus, while I'm almost sure I'll run short with 2 skeins, it won't be by that much, so I'd only use a small amount of the extra skein.

I do have extra Pure & Simple, though.  I'm omitting the beading on the lace sections of the sleeves and just using the P&S, but keeping the beading for the purl ridges (sleeves, neck & body).  I should have plenty for that.

Thanks guys... this thread was *such* a huge help I read through the whole thing (at that point it was like 50 pages) before I even recieved the pattern, so I was well prepared!

RoseRed, your SKB looks great!  It fits great, which is more than I can say for my first sweater!  I love the color too.  It makes me want to make a wool one at some point.
