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

You know, I really like the tube top pattern, but I'm not big on tube tops in general. When I make that top (and I will!) I'm going to add really thin, dainty straps. So, if your FO is a little too big, why not add some snug straps to it so you can wear it?? I bet it'd look great on you, it looks great on the dummy for heaven's sake!!  Cheesy

**Edit** Duh... if I only read the entire post.  Roll Eyes You already ARE adding straps!! Silly me. Anyway... can't wait to see the final result!  Wink

I just cast off the second sleeve on my puff sleeved cardi! I am so happy to finally be (mostly) done with it. I still need to weave in the ends and block it, but I finally finished my first knitted garment! Woo!  Cheesy

I'm binding off the bottom of my TTV.  Cheesy  I tried it on a little bit ago and it fits PERFECTLY with all my alterations to the pattern.

If it lives in the water or flies in the air, I'm in love with it. In New Zealand I saw a flying fish and almost wet myself.

This thread has been such an inspiration!

I love this book and couldn't decide what I wanted to make first.  I started with the bulky cropped cardigan (I forget the name, and I don't have my book on me), since the yarn was cheap & readily available.  It still needs sleeves & the button band/trim, but I put it aside b/c I don't have buttons yet (ordering today).

I also started the Boatneck Bluebell (in the cascade tweed - a reddish-brown color) & the Airy Wrap sweater (in Kidsilk Haze color Liquer, double-stranded).  I couldn't decide which one of these I wanted to work on yesterday, so I sat with both projects & alternated doing sleeve increases on each.

I have yarn for the Back to School vest, but haven't started it b/c the needles I need are currently in my in-laws van & they're out of town.

I also ordered yarn for the short-sleeved cardigan, and am getting buttons today for that as well.

I must take pictures!

Finally! After MONTHS and MONTHS!!!!

It's my modified Bluebell. I used Caron Simply Soft Brites in Berry Blue, and it might be the first thing I've made that I have few complaints about (only one: the top portion before the purl ridges is too long). It wasn't hard - it just got boring. Therefore, I dragged ass on it for a long time, and finally finished it tonight Smiley Smiley Whee! (That white spot is on my camera or mirror or something, not the sweater.)

(Sorry, that picture is huge.)

Would anyone find it in their hearts to post the gauge and yardage (and the original yarn used) needed for the bluebell sweater? I don't have the book on hand, and I want to do some yarn browsing tomorrow... Wink
