You're lucky your bf agrees to wear wool tho..  ;-)

Yeah we both eat vegan, but he doesn't mind wearing wool
... it's not even that, he'll say it scratches and it's too warm and whatever else..! Cheesy

I believe the color I used is Coffee. It is LOVELY. Brown with some maroonish parts in it. My sleeves did come out pretty wide. I think I didn't really understand the instructions of about the increases on the sleeves, so I spread them out around the sleeve instead of putting them all in one place (then I realized that that part of the sleeve would be the armpit, but that was after I already did the first sleeve so I just kept with my method). It's not really noticeable I don't think unless you're a knitter haha.

Your bf is pretty cute too. Wink

Haha thanks, yes he is quite the cutie. I'm a lucky girl.

All of the great men's zipped raglan sweaters have motivated me to start working on mine again.  Unfortunately, I'm stuck on the sleeves (this is my first sweater)! I've worked 16 rounds in rib pattern, but what does  "Work # rounds even" mean? Does that mean alternate one increase row with a regular rib pattern row?  Undecided  And if so, the increase row says to kf&b, knit to last stitch, then kf&b again...wouldn't that mess up the rib pattern in the sleeve.

 Huh

Any help would be much appreciated! I'm stuck  Huh and ignorant of all things sweater-related.

"knit even" means to continue the stitch you were working on (stockinette or ribbing) without doing anything else, so no increases or decreases.  Smiley

Hourglass Sweater the second:



This came out much better than the first one. Sorry for the crappy picture - I have no idea why I look so angry. Honestly, I'm very happy with the sweater! I used Knit Picks Wool of the Andes. Hooray for cheap sweater-making!

My hourglass is pretty much done! (As finished as it gets for the next little while)...bottom edge still needs to be hemmed, and armpits grafted.



(there are more pictures on my blog)

I made the XS with 4.5 mm's and TLC "Lustre" (acrylic).  It took less than 4 skeins of the stuff. 

Considering it's made with inexpensive acrylic yarn, I love it! It's soft and warm and cushy and fits almost perfectly.

Definitely making another one of these...with nice yarn hopefully Cheesy
