finished my BFC! i now need to graft together the underarms and sew the arm seams up and go buy some buttons! I'll post a picture once i have sewn everything up and then after i get the buttons cos i think i'll get the buttons online and that might take a week or two.

Regarding the Feather Scarf: 

   I followed the written directions for the lace ends - and THEN understood the diagram (since I don't really crochet).  I wish the directions were more user-friendly. However,  it is looking quite like the way it should  (except for a couple of mistakes!)   

          At least the pattern goes quickly so that helps lower the frustration level.

Here is my Mini and Modified Karate Cardigan. I needed to use up this Elann Peruvian Cuzco that I have tried to knit into 3 other patterns, but did not like them. My gauge was way way off, so I guess I'm lucky it at least sort of fits. I really like the way the Dojo stitch looks in the fuzzy yarn. Seaming was not very fun though!

Candicane, it's way cute!!! I like your mod a lot, actually - I'm more likely to make a smaller sweater than one I'd be swimming in.

Thanks! Watch out for the arm length on the pattern. I think it was something like 25". In the pics in the book, the cuff is rolled up... but I really didn't like the way it looked like an inner-tube. I have really long arms and that length was too much for me.

I need help! I've nearly finished my second sleeve for my BFC and I tried seaming my other finished one and attaching it and it just looked horrible. Has anyone got any tips? I've always been rubbish at seaming but the bulk of the yarn is making it look a million times worse!

A few people here (like oatmeal) grafted live stitches from the sleeves to the shoulders to avoid seam bulk. You could also try knitting the sleeves in the round to eliminate some bulk.

candicane, sweet mod!

I think that I had the same problem you are experiencing. Like Oatmeal, I frogged back to the armpits, knit the sleeves in the round and then grafted the live stitches from the sleeve onto the body. I did the sleeves from the top down (use a provisional CO) in case I didn't like the sleeve length, I could easily change it. I followed these instructions to graft the sleeves.

I am anxiously waiting on Mr. UPS. I ran out of yarn and had to order another skein from Yarnzilla. It should come today! I so want to finish my sweater. I have frogged a lot and am want to move onto another project.
