That is a gorgeous shrug/spencer!!

icantotallymakethat, I am knitting the Sideways Spencer, too. Have you blocked it when you measured? Because this thing stretches out a LOT from blocking!

I sure did. I blocked it to the correct measurements and it still doesn't fit.  Sad

Aww, that is really too bad. I'm afraid of having the other problem... I can't tell whether mine may come out too big or not. But my needles broke so I haven't been able to work on it lately.

You can check for size by threading the stitches on to some waste yarn  in a contrast color, then trying the project on.

So sorry about your needles!

Catherine Morland: something with romantic/gothic details (JA was sending up the gothic novel in Northanger Abbey, after all), like extra long sleeves and ruffly bits, but somehow not looking QUITE right....with finishing that's a bit lop-sided, and colors that just don't work with each other....

I'm not sure about the "not quite right" part, but this pile of flesh by Knitty looks perfect for her. If you imagine it worn by Catherine Morland and not that model, of course.

And I remembered this one, from Slovakian craft magazine Dorka, issue 2/2001 - for Lydia Bennett. I think it would suit her character even better if it was combined with a bit of another colour, to look very flashy of course.

It seems as though I've arrived late for the party. How very rude of me... Sad

I just read the entire thread and thought I'd put in my two pence.

I thought lovely miss indie-knitter's Dahlia (http://knitty.com/ISSUEwinter07/PATTdahlia.html) looked completely JA, and now that I'm about half-way through with mine in a very soft, delicate blue yarn, I keep seeing Jane Bennet. Anyone else get "regency" from the pile of flesh?

Absolutely! That empire waist and those puffed sleeves and that neckline are all perfect.

Well, than maybe not Lydia Bennet...
