Knit in roughly two weeks, following Knitty's I Do Pattern on US 7 needles with Lily's Sugar 'n Cream yarn in white.  There was a little confusion (and re-knitting) to get the back pieces to match up, and I think that's partially the fault of the pattern and partially my not paying attention.  I took several pictures and this is the best I got:



It's still a little ripply, which I think is a result of my impatience in the blocking process, and will be re-blocked someday...

Looks Great! I cannot believe that it turned out that nice it the Lily n' cream yarn I would be happy to know how it is after some wear and tear. I have this yarn all over my house and would love to make this with it!

Ooh! I really like this! Do you have a pic of what it looks like in the back? Does anybody know how to turn this knitting pattern into a crochet pattern? I'd love to make one in crochet!

Thank you for all the lovely comments!  I'm sorry I don't have a picture of the back - I'm my own photographer, and it was difficult enough to get the shot I did.  I'll ask a friend the next time I get the chance, though.

We could learn a lot from crayons. Some are sharp, some are pretty and some are dull. Some have weird names, and all are different colors, but they all have to live in the same box.

The more I look at this the more I want to make it and the more I like the yarn that you used more than the orginal pattern! Great job once again.

By the way have you seen any wear yet that you do not like?

Wow  Grin

This actually has inspired me to try and do one. I've got a mystery Belgian yarn in powder blue (cotton/acrylic) on 4,5 Prym needles... Which cast-on did you use? The pattern didn't specify, so I went to Eunny's lace pages for some nice cast-ons - I think I'll use the lace cast-on.

But yeah, truly lovely work  Cheesy

excellent work!  It's stuning.  I think the rippliness is fine. I  honestly wouldn't have noticed if you hadn't said something.  I especially like that you made it with the lily yarn.  May have to try this one.
