fishie - What a beautiful action shot!

> Roxybritain : using a separate ball of yarn to work the sleeves is what I'd do, leaving a long tail to mend the little hole that always subsists in a top-down knit under the armhole (or is it me ?)

I have the problem with the holes under the armpits too!! does anyone know how to prevent these? i usuaually just end up crocheting extra yarn into the big ones. ugh.

regarding the top-down underarm hole.. think I read somewhere that it helps to knit a few rows of each sleeve before continuing on with the body.  haven't had occassion to test it yet, but seems like it might work, like all the abuse of knitting the body of the sweater causes the underarm join to stretch out..  Twisting your stitches might also help close up a small gap.

I sometimes just pick up a couple of extra stitches on the first row (where the gap is) and then do some decreases when I go around the second time.

And here is an "almost-done" pic of my puff-sleeved cardigan:

Now looking forward to the Bluebell sweater and the Back-to-school vest.

That looks great! I'm on the waist section of mine and I can't wait to be done.

I only have the arms left, and I'm loving the Lana Grossa yarn for this one! I've also done the v-neck pullover - super fast and easy. I'll see if I can't get pics up once the tunic is done. I have modified, since the pattern didn't make any sense to me at all when I got to the split. So, I did a split w/o buttons, with a seed stitch border (doing my increases every other knit row, right before the border).

I'm also doing the simple knitted bodice, but after banging my head against the wall for buying the wrong beaded yarn (on purpose; but it was a different gauge, which I missed), it's on hold until I finish the tunic. Grr...

Try different needles to make up the difference.

Tube top in Burnt Orange Pima Tencel, modeled by my bustalicious sewing dummy, as - sadness! - I knit a size too large and cannot simultaneously hold the top up and take a self-portrait. 



Ends still need to be woven in, knitted i-cord strappies are in the process.  Will post a really-and-truly-FO shot soon.  Smiley

Oh I did Wink, but the chevron pattern becomes unreckognizable, bla, bla. I've decided to use the beaded yarn for the purl ridges only, since I have enough Pure & Simple yarn to hold me over for the rest.  Tongue

I'm making the same sweater in the Aspen yarn as well at a later date - I can't wait!

I'm almost done with the tunic now, so I'll attempt to post a pic once it's all done. Grin

I am so excited!! I just bought Fitted Knits today! Yay for pay day!!  Cheesy I'm just in love with all the patterns. Usually I find a knitting book and only really love some and the rest are so-so to me or just plain blah. But Stefanie has hit the mark, as usual! I want to knit EVERYTHING in this book and can't wait to get started. (Too bad I work this weekend.  Tongue )

Anyway... I'm in! I have to peruse the patterns some more to find the right one to start with. I'm thinking the two-toned ribbed shrug for fall. But I know I'll be knitting all these yummy things up over time!

So count me in!!!  Grin
