I have finished my yoke and have started working on the body, and my eyelets are not spiraling- I'm knitting English style, if that is any help to anyone. I actually kind of wish my eyelets were spiraling, because I like the look. Grin Sorry, I can't post a picture because I don't have a camera.

I've just started my sleeves!  I decided to start doing decreases right from the start for 2 reasons.  1)  I noticed that the sleeves have turned out baggy on quite a few FOs I've seen online and 2) I have skinny little twig arms!  I am doing them in the round using magic loop.  So far they are going quickly.  I was going to do the eyelet pattern on them, but I changed my mind and I'm doing it as the pattern was written.

How's it going for everyone else?

Hi. I know it's a bit late but could I throw mine in the mix? I'm using Bernat Satin in Admiral. I started this week and it's seriously easy.

I finished up my tree jacket before Christmas (and wore it for Christmas Eve), but I just haven't gotten a picture of it.  These pictures are not the best, they were taken after I had already worn the sweater and it had been folded and was wrinkly.  Plus the flash made the shirt underneath it very visible.  I made it out of Valley Yarns Longmeadow. 



I have additional pictures and information on my blog, Knit, daisy, knit and on my ravelry page.

rebeldaisy, who did you get you lace straight? I'm finished with the lace and it's slanted to the side. It looks cool but I want to know it's slanted.

My lace is actually spiraling to the side, I was just able to block it so that it is less noticeable.

ok.  I'm a bit late in the game, but I've finally started my tree jacket!

I'm using Berrocco Ultra Alpaca in the color "blueberry mix", which I love.  It's a deep blue with little strands of teal and red, giving a sort of purple-y hue.  I find it interesting to look at the different colored fibers as I'm knitting.

I decided to change my lace pattern to avoid the spiralling of the eyelets.  In the neck section I tried replacing the second k2tog with ssk, but it still slants slightly.  In the body I'm doing k3, k2tog, yo, k1, yo, ssk and the lace is not spiralling.  It looks a little different than the neck, but not by much so I'm going to stick with it.

I'm 3 inches into the body lace section, and so far I'm really happy with it.  So far the fit is perfect, and I'm not planning to use waist shaping.

Is anyone else still working on this?
