I think your colour combination is lovely, Chirurun.  And your yarn looks so nice and soft...

yay chrirurun! I thought I was going to be the only person still going on this!
The colours are lovely, very warm and earthy.

I've nearly got the waistband back on track.

Thank you for BlackMarketBaby and  lupinbunny.
I locate the error in the work in the photograph ahead of this, and am knitting it again now.
Knitting of Japan has not become accustomed yet because it is not in foreign countries though is the knitting sign.
I seem to have been doing the rubber knitting misunderstanding it.
I am knitting it very well now.
I like this design very much. I want to finish knitting early and to put it on even a day early.

'kay. if anyone's still reading, i've risked some increases like so:
I have a 28 inch waist, 36 inch bust. They don't match, according to the pattern (which seems to allow for a two inch difference between waist and bust?).
I've made the waistband to fit, then picked up as many stitches as recommended for my bust size. In the first 6 rows, i've added 6 stitches (total), as well as the ones you're told to increase. One extra on the 'bust side' of each marker, plus two on each side where I guessed princess seams would be. Hopefully it'll fit, without being too big. I didn't like the idea of the bust measurement being two inches smaller than my actual chest - my yarn doesn't look so great when stretched.

Guess I'll find out soon enough.

I'm glad you guys picked up on that, cause I sure didn't . . . however I was planning to only wear it fastened in the waist and open at the top, over a camisole or something, so no worries.

do you think having it one inch smaller than my bust will work out okay? or should i make it to fit?

I think one inch smaller will give you just enough stretch for it to be fitted and cute, don't forget you can always block it.

I hatehatehate making my own hook&eye tape. It always falls apart after I've sewn it to something and then it's a pain in the ass to repair.


All I have left to do is the hook&eye tape and a lone end of yarn to weave in. Argh.

GODDAMMIT!!!!!


I finally stopped procrastinating and finished the damn thing and guess what. I added too many rows before the armpit join. Now I have to either go back and make the armpit seams deeper (which I suspect will not work very well) or rip off the hook&eye tape and frog the whole thing back to before the armpit join and take out about 6 rows.


Why the hell can I never make a perfect sweater?!

oh no! you poor thing! i am up to the armpits and trying to work out how much is 'enough'.
I hate sweaters where the armpit-bit is all snug. Yuck. I like armpit skin touching armpit skin when my arms are by my sides, not my precious handknit.

if i were you (and this comes from the girl with two wasitbands, remember), i would frog and reknit. youll be a lot happier with it in the end).
