Neither of these pictures are great, but I do not have anyone who can take a picture for me so the bathroom pictures will have to do.  These are both made with Cotton-ease doublestranded.

This is the steek vest, I made it longer then suggested just by increasing the ribbing.



This is the ballet t.  Which I again made a lot longer for a less cropped look.  I also added little sleeves to it.



Sorry about the bad pictures!

Ooh, rebeldaisy, I love your ballet tee. Did you use the same gauge called for in the pattern? I love that pattern, but some of the pictures I've seen of the finished products make it look kind of meshy, and I'd really like to be able to wear it without having to put a camisole or something underneath it.

I made the smallest size, and it does stretch a bit (the picture doesn't really show this).  My gauge was just about spot on.  Just to give any idea of how small this shirt really is, I weigh about 108 pounds, and it does stretch a bit on me.  I don't know how it could fit anyone with out a lot of stretching.  Hope that helps!  I think it would be pretty easy to adjust the pattern, just look at the pattern and see where they added stitches for the larger size, and add a few more.

SO I made the steek tank, and when i tried it on the medium was too big, and my cast on edge was too tight to fit over my hips....  So I frogged it, not a big deal since it didn't take long to knit, I cast on for the small last night, and tried to do a really loose cast on edge, but after knitting a couple inches of the ribbing I think it might still be too tight.  Any advice on how I can check if its too tight before I knit the whole thing again?  I would have cast on the a bigger needle but 15s are the biggest I own.

I finished this scarf months ago but figured now would be a good time to share it with the world Grin This is the corkscrew scarf and I love it and get a lot of compliments on it.

Can you cast on with a 15 and say a smaller needle.  Just hold them side by side and do your thang.  It might feel awkward, but it should get the job done.  If you need a really really loose cast on you can always cast on using both 15's.

So I made a yoke vest a few months ago (posted here too) with some brownish recycled yarn from Tibet (how cool is that !). I love it but haven't been able to wear it yet due to pregnancy... ;-)

Anyhow, then my friend Anouschka came over and saw it, and she said she wanted to knit one as well .. So she left with the leftover yarn (plenty  enough for a second one), circs and stitchmarkers (17 needed !). She finished it a couple weeks ago but just sent me the pics:



That's her modelling it in Brittany. Mmm, barefoot in the sand by the ocean  I'm jealous ! And then on her little boy too...  ;-)

Don't know if you can see well on that pic, (didn't want to post a huge pic) but because she's quite tall she started with a few extra rows of st. st. before starting on the actual pattern instructions, and yet it was still not enough so she added some ribbing down the waist after she was finished.

I'm halfway through the ballet top for my daughter...but it's coming out way smaller than I thought...so now it's a gift for my roommates daughter...

For anyone planning to knit the kids version, it's like a 7 or 8 hour knit, not bad!
