Very pretty work everyone!

I would love to see the modifications to the steek/ballet tank...it's a great morphing of the two.

Shannon,
If you keep ending up with too many stitches then maybe the problem is with your yarn overs. New lace knitters often bring the yarn to the front then knit a stitch and count it as a yarn over. A yarn over is simply bringing the yarn to the front. The only other thing I can think of is that you may be accidentally be making yarn overs when creating the twisted stitches.

Maybe you can post a picture of lace and we can see better what the problem is.

Hmm...well, with my yo's I bring the yarn to the front and sort of wrap it around the needle..I thought I had it right, but I could check my reference books again...actually, I think subsequent decreases take care of it...I had  another problem though, knitting the top half, and this is driving me crazy...after you finish the lace chart, it says to increase a stitch on each side on every 4th row five times. Each side of what? The chart? Or each side of each separated panel? Eh? I had to unravel the whole thing because I'm sure I did it wrong...thanks for responding to my problems, that's so nice of you!=)

Her dirty paws and furry coat,
She ran down the forest slope.
The forest of talking trees,
They used to sing about the birds and the bees.
The bees had declared a war,
The sky wasn't big enough for them all.

yarnfarmr - thanks for the nice compliments on the blog.  Smiley

I just finished the steek tank yesterday - here's a photo:



There are more photos and some notes on the pattern on my blog.  I wore it out yesterday and got a very enthused compliment from the girls at the bead store, who said they wanted to learn to knit.  I encouraged them, of course - trying to convert people to knitting everywhere I go!

Pretty!  You have a nice shape for that top.  I made mine too big, and had to give it to a friend. If anyone is going to make this, size it down!  It was a very quick knit, though. My next Loop- d- project is the Bolero, if i can find a comparable yarn.  We don't got no FILATES KING down here in Kansas!
Any substitution suggestions that don't cost an arm and a leg and a firstborn?

That Filates King stuff--well, actually it looks like the bolero wants Needful Yarns/King. Whatever that is. But in case it helps, Lion Brand Chunky has the same gauge as Filates King Van Dyck.

I knit the loop-d-loop ballet t-shirt last weekend.  Here's a photo with a felted bag I made a few months ago Smiley



I bought the pattern off her website and it was so easy I'm definitely going to get the book now!

It's my first adult sized sweater so I'm really proud. 

There are more photos and details on my website http://www.littlehedgehog.org
