I'm joining in the knitalong!

I just started cleaves with debbie bliss's alpaca silk in coral. It was a gift from my mother, and I have been dying to use it for something. This might seem a little crazy, but I think it might work. I am knitting it in US 10 needles, so it is a loose knit, but it's still going to be smaller than described in the pattern. Luckily, my upper half is freakishly tiny (28" bust!) but I think I may still need to knit the medium size.

This is my first garment and I am really excited to see how it turns out. I just hope I am not making a mistake by using a smaller guage than suggested! Should I just frog it and buy lamb's pride bulky before I waste too much time? Any advice would be glady appreciated.

I'm in on the craze, too!

I just cast on last night in Lamb's Pride; I'm doing it in Wild Oak -- a pretty caramel color. My sister-in-law doesn't knit much (yet), but I got her checking out Knitty, and she was raving about Cleaves, so it looks like she's getting it for Christmas...

This is the first time ever I've gotten such a big jump on my Xmas knitting! But knowing me, I'll get distracted and set it aside and on December 23rd, I'll be freaking out about completing it...

For all those ladies who knit this in Wool-Ease (Chunky or otherwise):
How did they turn out? Did it knit up to be something you'd actually be comfortable wearing and being seen in?
There's some gorgeous yarn on sale here. I want a reason to buy it / wear it around and gloat about how I can knit. Give me a reason, ladies.

Greetings! A couple of you suggested earlier in this thread that you were going to try cleaves with a slimmer sleeve (i.e., not do the 2nd round of increases after the ribbed cuff) -- how did that work out for you? Is the whole sleeve still full enough? Did it come out too small? I am about 4" into the stockinette after the cuff on the first sleeve (and did not do the 2nd round of increases; therefore I am working with only 36 stitches), and I think the sleeve is going to be wide enough, but I was wondering how that modification worked out for others...

Please let me know! Or post pics if you are able!

Thank you, ladies! You guys all rock. I love the other results in here for cleaves!

I finished my Cleaves!

All in all, a pretty cool project. The final product is a Christmas gift (I'm actually getting started early this year), but I was having fun wearing it around after completing it.

I used Lamb's Pride bulky in the color wild oak and only did one of the 2 sleeve increases after the ribbed cuff to make the sleeves less puffy. They fit fine.


Oops; guess it should actually be adjusted downward to cover cleavage as the name suggests. Oh well!
