I have to knit another one. I had an accident with my grey one.  I smeared deordorant on the front and the yarn got discolored.  Big tragedy!!  I think it was the Secret deordorant. It happened before with a regular T-shirt and I completely forgot when I had the Orangina on.  I nothiced the smear on yesterday at work and I had walk around with it the whole day.  So please be careful with the Secret deordorants, any one of the Secret brand.

cnp71201 and roxybadoxy:  Thank you!  As for the color, it was pure accident.  Again, the yarn shop was closing with three minutes to spare and this was one of two colors (the other being black) that had enough balls of the same dye-lot in stock.  Good thing I dig pink...  Smiley

subliminalpolka- sweet! i LOVE your version. i know it was an accident but i really like how substantial it makes the fabric look. very cozy sweater-like. i bought the pattern a long time ago but was always kinda so-so about the pattern (love the lace, but not so into the flimsy look of the fabric) i'm gonna have to give it a try now myself with some 4-ply wool!  Grin

question for you.. did you notice any real big differences in your gauge or size/stretching issues with the 4-ply wool? or did everything seem to knit out okay?

nevergirl - Thank you!

Fortunately, everything knit up perfectly; the wool is a similar gauge (if not identical) to the cotton, and it knit up in exact accordance with the pattern.  (My only mod was switching to a smaller needle for the ribbing section.)  No seaming or stretching issues; I blocked it per usual and it fit just fine.

It *is* definitely a bit cozier and more substantial than the cotton...but I kind of dig that.  Smiley  Here's a close-up of the lace portion, so you can see the difference:

Beautiful, and I really love that color too  Cheesy

I'm totally inspired to go out and buy some wool now, was going to start on a hoodie after I finished my GLEE (from zephyrstyle) but I'm seriously thinking about whipping this out first instead.

Thank you!

All the Oranginas look great, guys!  Is anyone still working on theirs?  I'm thinking of starting one today using stash Bendigo 4ply cotton in a sort of soft sage green.

Please feel free to check out my Dating and Tiffany Ring blogs.  A few more are listed on my profile page.  Smiley

i might start this over the winter/early spring (so i can concentrate on the lace).

that way, once the weather gets warm, i'll be able to wear it right away.  i was thinking of making it now, but i won't get any use out of it for months!!!  that would kill me!

i do love everyone's versions of the top, though.
it's what made me decide to knit it in the first place.

you're goddamn right i made a blog. -  http://knit-me-shell-knit.blogspot.com/

It's 5 to 7 balls @ 186/50gm.  Hope that helps.
