oooooh, the color is juicy, and I bet it's super soft. You did a great job. I do so love it when knitted garments fit right, and yours looks like it fits you perfectly.

That's lovely. The color and style both look great on you, and your knitting looks beautiful. How did you like working with the soy silk? Trickier than wool?

the yarn is oasis soy silk. i got it from this site :http://www.mypollywogs.com/pollyspecial.html and i dyed it myself. the color was actually an accident. but i was really happy with the end result. as far as knitting with it-  it was not the easiest on my hands but i think that i may have done too much work on it while dying it making it a little rougher. but the feel and drape of it is amazing. worth the discomfort.

Good grief, Charlie Brown! That color is amazing! And it was an accident? I love it.

How many skeins did you use?  I've seen a number of these, but by far I like this one the most!

i used a little less than 2 skeins and i made the medium size but with a slightly smaller gauge approx 4sts per inch i think. but i will check and make sure if anyone is interested.

so i wore this to work yesterday and by 3 o clock is was super stretched out and falling off of me. does anyone know anything about reshaping things? especially soy silk things?




jazzybelle- the necklace is from my grandmother's closet that i helped her clean out. she has no idea where it came from and said i was welcome to have it.  Grin i was so happy.

wrybrarian- yep. it is a bunny tattoo. thank you.

guessica- the color really is that bright in person. it is wonderful. the shame though is that all other yarns look a little drab in comparison and i'm having trouble settling down on a yarn for my next project... er frustration.

My aunt and I tried to dye yarn that color yesterday. Our test skein came out perfect, but in larger batches, it's REALLY hard to get the vibrant color. So mine is somewhat toned-down. :-( But you know, I think I'm going to make the exact same thing. :-P
