I had the same problem with my Twiggy - the weekend that I finished making it, it was 90 degrees outside.

Getting hot here too! I got to the armhole shaping for my Shopping Tunic, but it's going to be 88 F here tomorrow. Might be a while before I can pick the project back up to finish comfortably.  Cheesy

For those who did the BFC seamless -- what did you do for neck shaping? Did you do the 4, 2, 2, 1 bind off at the neck edges and then pick up the bound off stitches to knit the garter stitches for the neck? So, close, but just not quite done!

I actually used short row shaping for mine (w&t). It worked out well! a row before you have finished the four repeats of the cable pattern knit until there are four stitches w&t. knit across until 4 stitches are left w&t and do that with 2 sts and then 1 st. then you knit across (picking up the w&t's) and then yuo just do the collar. easy and seamless!

I'm in the home stretch on my Seaberry Shell (from IK Spring '06).  I love the shape, and the 60s ness of it, but should have listened to my inner voice that said I needed to lengthen it.  I'm 5'9", and this is too short for me though it's blocked to the correct measurements. I DO think it would look fabulous with a high-waisted pencil skirt though, so maybe I'll finish it as is and just limit wearing it to that one look.

One of the reasons for not lengthening it was that I love the way the bobbles end right at the neckline, and I didn't want to break up that design element.

As you can see I am having some problems figuring out the short - rows on the neck-shaping.  They are rather inscrutable.  Anyone knit this and figured them out?

The seaberry shell looks fantastic! I especially love it in bright red, and it is gonna look fab paired with a pencil skirt.

The seabury shell looks great!

Here are some preview pics of my BFC. I did not do the bobbles or the neck button. My neckline is bigger than I had envisioned, but I didn't want it too tight either. I'm going to wash it and put buttons on to see how it looks before I make any more alterations.

I have frogged this thing so many times, it is already in need of a sweater shaver before its first wear.

I used the Twinkle Soft Chunky in Pink 05. Modeled pics once I do the buttons.

here's a progress photo of my Twiggy Tunic.  I'm 30 rows into the cable patterning.



and a badly lit modeled photo.  it's hot outside, so I didn't bother getting it just right.  It fits pretty well.  I ended up making the XS size.

The red Seaberry Shell,  the pink BFC,  and the navy Twiggy Tunic are FANTASTIC.

Question: What yarn is used for the navy Twiggy Tunic please???
