 Shocked Wow, great job on all of those!  I especially love the cardigan, it's so much cuter than the original pattern!

Thank you very much, given that I worked mostly with acrylic (ughh money Angry), and that NONE of my projects are blocked, I think they look good enough  Smiley
 So:the yarn is acrylic I bought cheap on ebay, the lilac yarn it's called avenue double knitting.
  The rose closure was also a first attempt, I like it so much.
   The pocket detail was my first (a lot of...first  Cheesy) duplicate stitch,,it was so easy!
  Hip in hemp can be found here http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEsummer07/PATThemp.html .

Thanks. I work with a lot of acrylic, too, (poor freshman college student, ya know?) and hardly ever bother to block any of it. A quick run in the washer and dryer does just as good in my opinion.  Wink

I like to do personal swaps now and again.

I knit, crochet, and make stitch markers.

Just pm me if you wanna swap. Smiley

I love your hip in hemp!  I remember seeing the pattern on Knitty and not loving it - isn't it funny how color choice can change one's opinion.  Did you use DK weight acrylic for that?

Love the cardigan - I put it on my queue! I normally don't like knitted skirts, but that one is fab.

Every single knit looks great.  Re: the garnstudio cardigan -- I have looked at that pattern before and just never thought of making it longer.  I may need to put this on my list.

Ditto on the Garnstudio cardigan being worth a second look after seeing your great longer version. Your colour choice makes it so fresh, too.

The first sweater is so flattering on you!  I love it, especially those buttons.  And your skirt is super cute too!
