cast on today! doing it in Lambs Pride Bulky wool in Charcoal. Yeah, not the yarn it calls for, but my grandmother needs something a little warmer I think. Plus, it's SO SOFT. I love it! Also using size 9 needles since I've lost one of my 8s. So, it'll be a bit big but I still think she'll love it Smiley

I'm using Lion Brand Fisherman's wool, just cast on a couple days ago, now that Christmas gifts are all done, I can focus on this!  Wink

Just got done with the back lower band, I hate ribbing xD I ended up frogging what I had and switched to size 8 needles, was turning out TOO big.

I've been working on it a bunch the last 2 days. So far I have about 11 inches of the back done.   Smiley

I think I'm around the same.. around 2 1/2 pattern repeats so far. It's turning out SO pretty. The wool makes the "leaves" kind of hard to see, but adds a nice texture to it, almost bubbly. Will take pics as soon as I find my camera, eek.

I took a few days off of this to finish up some other stuff, but now I finished the back! it looks sooo pretty.  Smiley



I (very slightly) changed the lace pattern. I'm just ignoring the shaded squares, and treating them like plain, non-shaded squares. (knit on right side, purl on wrong side) hopefully that makes sense. I just didn't want that much texture.

I'm done with the left front, but I'm putting this on hold for a week or 2 because I need to knit a vest, but I'll be back soon!

i just got to shaping the armholes - having a little problems working out the pattern, but I'm hoping it turns out right. If not, oh well, will frog back down and try again.

Had to stop for a little while, but now back on track. Need to get it done before July, and with how slow I knit I'll probably just make it Smiley

Hope you had a good Valentines Day! Had a little drama with the BF on mine, but we've been having problems for a few weeks now. On the upside, we're finally over the hump and working it all out now. It was hard, this was our first really big fight after about a year and a half being together, and for it all to happen on Valentines, even though in reality it's just another day, sucked. Think it's all stress with us moving and hard times finding jobs and such. Ah well, tomorrows a new day, right? Smiley

Will take pictures when I'm done the back, it's actually looking really nice. A bit bumpy, but I'm hoping that will straighten out with blocking. That's another thing I've never done before, but I'll worry about that when I come to it!

My back!





My pictures are awful - my hand is way unsteady. The pattern is a bit tight, but I'm hoping blocking will help it.

It looks great!  Smiley I've never blocked anything big before either... I took a little break on this, I need to get back on it!  Wink

I've taken a bit of a break too - been addicted to my cross stitching at the moment. Doubt I'll get this down my grandmom's birthday like I had intended, but it's a bit silly to give a sweater as a gift in July anyway Smiley Aiming for Thanksgiving/Christmas now Smiley

I have been taking a break from this project because I don't know where to find a super long 5 mm circular needle for the collar... I'm almost done with the front pieces though!

@horsygirl321 
This is really great work you did. I always wanted to make such pattern but I think it needs lot of time. I would like to make it in two colored combination, which color would be suitable with the blue which you have used?
