lol. That's funny.  Cheesy I also give my U.S residence away too by writing "color" and "favorite," instead of "colour" and "favourite."  Grin It's still a mystery to me why we write it differently.

Yeah. Lol. If they really wanted to make it easier for transportation and transition, they could have also thrown a billion useless repititious words in the english language too in the sea.  Grin

So, here we go!

I finally cast on for my top-down deep V-neck sleeveless top.  I also call her "Jessica" because it's made from cotton angora.  Angora Rabbit.  Jessica Rabbit.  Geddit?  Roll Eyes

Knit side:

Purl side:


I can't decide which one I prefer.  Any thoughts?

I'm excited to see this thread. For the past few weeks I've been working on this sweater:



I'm using KnitPicks Wool of the Andes Bare worsted (I dyed it a purplish-pink shade with Kool-Aid) on 3mm needles. Hence why it's taking me so long to finish. I tried with larger needles but then the lace pattern ended up being too loose so I had to size them down quite a bit. But I'm using a basic drop-shoulder sweater pattern, with v-neck shaping and the clover lace pattern from one of the sweaters in SnB Nation. I've finished the front & back and I'm now on to the sleeves only to discover that I didn't order enough yarn to complete the project, so I've got to put in another order before I can make anymore progress. I'll try to post some pics of my WIP over the weekend.

I've also got another Anthropologie sweater cast on:



For this I'm using Elann Devon (sport weight!) in Olive. I just started it last night so I'm not sure where it's going yet. I'm quite excited about this topic though!

I just saw this and am knitting a cardigan that fits the KAL theme:


Since I'm not going to shell out the $250+ for this, I am attempting to make my own version, using a variation of the Celtic cable pattern at http://www.girlfromauntie.com/patterns/celtic/simpleceltic.php. The yarn is Crystal Palace Yarns in Aran Marl. My progress so far:


Doesn't Anthropologie make great sweaters? (Albeit way too expensive for me to justify buying one). It's nice to see another person that loves them as much as I do.  Wink

Anthropologie seems to provide a lot of inspiration to knitters and sewers alike.

bijou_raoul - I can't wait to see your interpretation of those two sweaters - sounds like they'll be great.

wow, good luck everyone! I'm still waiting on the yarn my mom was supposed to send me from my hometown room,... a week ago.  Undecided However, it's ok. I'm working on a fast little sweater on the mean time.
bijou_raoul -I love the look of that anthropologie sweater! I like the saggy neckline.

p.s- Amy_UK... the title is hilarious. I just had to smile.

Here are a couple pictures of the clover lace Anthropologie-inspired sweater's progress:

front


close-up


I'm not so sure how I feel about the stripey-ness of it...I dyed 5 hanks of Bare with Kool-Aid and now matter how hard I tried I couldn't get them to come out the same color, so I decided to alternate hanks every few rows. I don't feel like re-knitting it, so maybe I'll try dyeing it again as a whole piece when it's finished if it will make a difference.
