Has anyone used short row shaping for the bust? I'm a DD and think it's about time I learn! Can anyone help me with this?

Big Girl KNits has an excellent tutorial/formula for this. I tried it on the Wicked (which is top-down), and it worked! I believe I did my short rows over 20 sts on that one, and wrapped 6 sts total. I was kind of doing it *blind*, though...hehe.

Thank you for the suggestion...I think I might need to get that book. I hate having boobs  Undecided

How is everyone doing on their Juliet's?  I'm about half way through the garter stich section (I frogged once and went 2 sizes because I thought it was going to end up being way too big!). 

I am hoping to finish the whole thing this weekend.  I don't have to work on monday, but I do have quite a bit of homework and lesson planning to do (and cleaning and laundry!), so I don't know if it will definitely get completed or not!

I am almost done with the raglan increases. However, somewhere along the way, I dropped a stitch where the increases are, and as a result, it looks a little shoddy because I just have no idea how to pick those stitches up.

I am making mine in Lion Brand Wool Ease, but I consider this one my "rough draft." I'm going to make a 3/4-sleeved one with Knit Pick's Decadence (which is on sale!) The yarn is coming in the mail Smiley

I just finished binding off my sleeves... I tried it on and it seems like it might be a tad too big still.  I'm not sure what I want to do.  I've already frogged once and gone down two sizes, I'm not sure if I want to frog again after I've already completed 50 rows!

I think I'm going to just keep going and consider this my "rough draft."  I'm using lion brand jiffy, which is pretty cheap, and I think it will come out wearable just not very fitted.  I really like the pattern though, so I might buy some nicer yarn and make a second one with 3/4 length sleeves (I think sleeves would be cute and add a little extra warmth for the upcoming new england winter!).

My camera's back from its repairs AND I think I'm allowed to post photos on here now, so yay!!  Here's my Juliet progress...



It's been slow cause I'm working on Salina from Rowan Vintage Style right now as well, but I'm planning on working some on this tomorrow and hopefully finishing before next weekend.  I'm so glad I frogged and went down a size, this fits so much better than before!

Does anyone have any suggestions for where to find cute buttons?  The craft stores near me seem to have loads of cute, smaller ones but not a great selection of larger buttons.

Well, I thought I was going to post my first picture, then I find out you have to post 10x before you are allowed to post a picture.  I've been lurking a long time & never heard that rule mentioned before---Oh well!  Here's a link to my Juliet-

I added a few extra repeats of lace.  It's a little bigger than I would like but I think I will still wear it.  This was such a fast, fun knit.  Now I just need to find the right buttons.


Love your green juliet, knittheory!

This was a birthday knit for my 7 year old.  I used Cottonease in Orangeade.  Used pins instead of buttons so she can change them anytime she want to.  She rocked the top at school on Friday!

droopymcccool-those button/pins are so cute!   Do you recall how many you cast on for your daughter's sweater?   I would like to make another one for my neice.  Also did you add a few extra front edging stitches?  Yours seems to lay flatter.
