Aww, I'm blushing! Thanks so much!

I bow down in admiration and respect of your skills!   Smiley  Amazing!  That Vogue Shrug looks really complicated and very impressive!  Why is it impossible to wear?  The lace wrap is delightful and the "Naughtiness" is charming!  Will you wear Naughtiness as an under or outer garmet?  I'd be tempted to wear it as an outer for all to see!

The problem w/the Vogue shrug is that there's just waaaaay too much fabric in the front, even for my *ahem* chesty frame- were it not for the sleeves, I could wrap it around myself twice. As for the corset, it's outerwear. It's too much fun to keep to myself, after all!

Great job on all the FO's!  Are the photos taken in a yarn shop, or is that your craft room?  I'm envious of your workspace Smiley

It's a yarn shop. My place of work, though lately I've not been doing much actual knitting there thanks to the joys of inventory.

Wow!!! Love them all!!! You sure have skills!! I haven't seen the book Naughty Needles yet... or if I did - I sure did not see that corset. My daughter would beg me for it if she knew it was out there... how tough is it to do? I mean - you are a Knitting Queen... I am just a jester!

*still blushing* I don't know about knitting queen, but thanks! The book is by Nikol Lohr, and the title of the project is Felt Up. It's really easy to do. It's knit sideways and then seamed together, and you want the seams to show! It took no time at all, and with multiple stranding you have the opportunity to play with color a lot!

Thanks so much again, I'm glad you liked these pieces!

Thanks for explaining why the Vogue piece didn't work.  I love the pattern and want to knit it....but can/will go into the project knowing it might have letdown attached to it!

The corset....rocks (verb not noun).

These are all amazing! I love the simplicity of the corset, it has a really elegant feel to it. As for the vogue shrug... well, I don't think I would ever have the patience to knit something so elaborate! It's very beautiful... curious, but beautiful. The lace wrap is great as well... I've only completed one knit lace project so far, and even though it was very simple I still found myself getting frustrated because I wasn't counting properly and kept messing it up. Seeing great work like this always makes me want to try again!

The shrug isn't actually all that intricate- it's knit modularly in pentagons (stacking decreases). The most technically challenging bit of the whole thing was trying to figure out how it was supposed to fit.

As for lace counting issues, I propose to you two tools: stitch markers and a really, really good row counter (I like the one clover makes that looks like a frog. They usually run about $10, but are well worth the investment, especially w/lace projects!

Great work! It's too bad about the Vogue shrug. I know other people have had trouble with the "unwearableness" of that pattern, which is too bad because it's so beautiful draped over the dummy. Smiley Ah well, I've had plenty of projects like that myself. It's a learning experience, huh?
