I am sure by now, you have heard of the Boobholder!

This is my third attempt at one but this last attempt was done more thoughtfully, including concern for gauge and math.  The Math4Knitting podcast has really turned me on to the idea of math and knitting being friends. 

At any rate, below is my Boobholder.  This was knit for a size 18 (48" bust).  I made a handful of mods which are outlined in my blog named below.  The basics are my gauge was 16 stitches/21 rows per 4".  I used 6-7 balls of Kureyon in color #170, lot A.  I cast on 57 stitches and did not follow the pattern closely but did definitely use it as a blueprint. 

I did block it harder than I realized and it is now a bit boxy and not so boobholder-y.  Another blocking can not hurt things, huh?

I love raglan shaping, how pretty!  I was freakish about the stripes....Kureyon, not so good for OCD people. 













I am happy and pleased with this overall, I must say.

Wow!! You are the cutest thing I have ever seen, esp in your boobholder  Wink

That colourway is spectacular. May the powers that be bless Noro's cotton socks.

Hip-hip-hurrah!!  Success!  It looks great!  I'm about the same size as you and I am knitting a shrug (I'm fairly new at knitting the wearables, other than hats, scarves and hand-warmers).  I'll have to check out the podcast, Math4Knitting.

Actually, it wasn't.  The striping of the Kureyon makes it look so intricate but it is easy.  The pattern did not take long to work up, either.  I worked it over 3 or so weeks, off and on. 

Thanks for the compliments!

I hope you share pictures of your shrug.  I love shrugs but have been concerned about their size because they always look kick ass on the tiny girls and well...I am not a TINY girl.

Fiber_freak, I posted my shrug here:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=183865.0

I ain't no tiny girl either, but I've discovered that us big girls can wear shrugs.  I explain some modifications with the pics, but if you need to know some other (slight) mods I did (since we're close to the same size), I'd be glad to share them with you!
