I just finished my boatneck bluebell from Fitted knits.  I used size 3 needles and doubled Rowan felted tweed.  It took about a month for the whole thing.  But there at the end I was getting pretty board and would jump from one thing to another.  I blocked it but not too pleased with the way it ended up after blocking so I'm going to try again.  I really like it though.  It's not the most flattering, but I'm hoping after the re-blocking it will be better.  I made it a 3/4 length sleeve rather than the long sleeves now that it's getting warmer so that I can wear it for more time out of the year.  Well, on to the pictures......



The color is closer on these next ones...



Love to hear your comments!

If all our life is but a dream, fantastic posing greed
Then we should feed our jewelry to the sea
For diamonds do appear to be
Just like broken glass to me.


The northern downpour sends its love.

Thanks for all the nice compliments.  I have since reblocked and now love it.  Oh, and size 3 needles are really easy when you have thicker yarn...it just helps make extra tight stitches.  I wish I had patience...haha Grin

Gorgeous!  That sweater makes your breasts look amazing---some high necked shirts just make boobs look massive and scary and carnivorous, but this one doesn't.

Oh, it's just kittens.

I want to leave this world the way I came into it:  naked, screaming, and covered in someone else's blood.
