i just finished the fluffy cami from this book, check it out on my blog (whisperingpine.blogspot.com)

Oh, that is beautiful!  I was planning on making it but wasn't sure about the cowl neck, but it looks great on you!

This is my Brioche Stitch Hat.  It was definitely really challenging.  I think that the description of how to do the stitch in the book is not very good, because I had to rip out my first attempt at it about ten rows in.

I know you posted this ages ago but this hat is fabulous! What yarn did you use? I love the colours

I'm thinking about trying the socks from weekend knitting in just one color I think they are called jazz socks, has anyone tried them?
any advice on picking yarn? I'm guessing just sport weight. They give a guage but you really have to knit it up b/c it isn't a normal guage like 6 stitches = 1 inch, they wrote it up all funny.

Your projects all look so good - I bought the book for a trip and made the fingerless mitts. It was my first attempt at real pattern following and they actually worked.  You now have inspired me to move up, up and away and make some pillow case lace things!

artistrachel - i knit the striped devotion socks... basically the same pattern at the jazz ones, just slightly different yarn.  i used Lily Sugar and Cream for mine.  they called for size 7 needles.  I believe the Jazz socks call for size 6 needles so just look for yarn that calls for that guage and you should be fine.  Mine worked out great (I'll post pictures later!)

i started up a pair with reynolds contessa which i found on sale at my LYS.  it knits up at about the same guage -- they will be very cooshy, warm socks when they're done, but the summer humidity here on the east coast has rendered my second sock yet to be completed  Smiley

Has anybody done the cashmere pullover yet? I'm thinking about doing this but using Rowan plaid instead. The cashmere would've cost me $500 or more.

so here's a picture of the baby sweater with the buttons on the shoulder.  I used rowan tweed instead of the hemp yarn since I couldn't find the hemp at my lys, plus it was pretty yarn.  I found the clay buttons at a christmas festival.  Unfortunately, by the time I finished and sent it off, the baby it was intended for was too big, so now it will wait for an unlikely 3rd child, or naked teddy bear.

has anybody made the unisex knock-around cashmere pullover? I have made the two rectangle pieces and am about to pick up 66 stitches. But I am confused about how to do it.

It says to have the reverse St st side facing you, 1) does that mean the bumpy side?

and it says to insert left needle from left to right on the left side and knit the picked up st. 2) does this mean just pick up and knit? I'm not suppose to actually knit the stitch i just made am I?


any help would be greatly appreciated.

thanks,
roe
