Any of you guys on Ravelry interested in a fittedknits along group to do some cross-posting?
I am!! I've been looking for one since I got my invite, but I'm too chicken to orgainze my own group.

cool! it's up!  just check under groups for fitted knits!

SWEEEET.  Now I can start spamming it.  I am working on projects #3 and 4 from that book right now.  Cheesy

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.

I had to take a little break after finishing my Bluebell. But now I'm back for more!

I am just beginning my puff-sleeved cardigan. I'm using Rowan Cashsoft Baby DK. The cell phone pic doesn't really do it justice - it's a pale peachy color.

I decided not to do rows 12-17 of the collar, because my neck is short enough as it is  Grin

I'm itching to start knitting the airy wrap-around lace sweater for a wedding I'm attending in February should be perfect for keeping the 'church chills' away. Buuuut... I also want to make a sundress to go with it, so I'm trying to hold off on yarn buying until I've at least gone fabric buying. I'm so impatient though!  Grin

Hey fellow Fitted Knitters!  I am going to be working on the Texured Tunic sometime this week (as soon as my Rowan Summer Tweed comes in the mail!)  If anyone cares to join me!  I finished Cozy V-Neck Pullover recently.  I love the designs in this book!

oooo let's see some pics of your cozy v neck, kreedance!

Ohh ohh oooh, I'm about to start the Textured Tunic too! I've got my yarn (I'm using the Lana Grossa specified in the pattern, because I'm unimaginative like that), but I really want to finish off my current project before I dive into something new. Keep us posted on your progress!

Even before I get off the starting block, I have a question for anyone who's made this (or just anyone who has the pattern in from of them and is smarter than me) - when do you make the buttonhole at the shoulder? Maybe I'm just being highly unobservant, but I can't see mention of it anywhere.

My first ever post, hope it works!
I am just finishing the front of the back to school tank (I did it in 2 sections because I have never knit in the round before!), made the rib extra long, changed the pattern to stocking stitch, & apart from messing up the darts (had never heard of that never mind tried it!) it's looking ok...
Thankfully I am a dressmaker rather than a knitter (used to sew professionally) so can do a nifty bit of stitching inside to hide any dodgy bits!

Not sure how many posts I have to make before I can post a picture, but with the sheer amount of things I have on the go, might be a while before it's finished anyway!

finished the front, held it against me properly - & i suspect i now need to a)unpick the thing or b) lose about 3 stones straight away...

didn't much like the cotton i was using anyway, so unpicking it is
bah humbug (expensive mistake)

might use a tank pattern from Knitting Lingerie Style & adapt it to have the wide ribbing as i think that's going to be flattering

anyway, time to get ready for work (just had half term, am not exactly eager to go back!) - enjoy the day people x

Sorry to hear that your project went awry.  Sad Pure cotton can misbehave.
