I finally finished 'Pinup Queen!'





Made from Cleckheaton Angora Supreme in dark pink. It's a little bit large around the chest and shoulders, but I'm pretty darn happy with it.

Now to clean all the angora fluff off every inch of my house...

That's my favorite version I've seen of this sweater. The angora makes it so luscious! Brava!

yay! I'm so glad to see pics of this. I have about 7 inches of the front of mine done. I've been hoping to see someone else's finished one. I hope mine ends up loking as good as yours does.

Thanks for all the comments, guys!

I'm currently attempting to block it to be a little smaller- will see if it's worked when it finally dries (so much wet wool! So little sunshine!)

Wonderful sweater!!

I think i read in a Lucky magazine that to minimize shedding of these kinds of sweaters, stick it in a zip lock bag and put it in the freezer for 2-3 hours.  It sounds crazy, but perhaps it works?

I can tell you, Fall is composed of

1 part dead fish smell
1 part wet leaves
1 part arctic chilled air (not winter chilled variety)
2 parts crunchy walking
a pinch very cold rain
some apples you picked yourself
a few very still moments
a good deal of inner reflection

Blocking it helped a lot (ie, it doesn't slip off my shoulders so much anymore!) For anyone else who makes this, I recommend you do a wet blocking, not just the steam blocking the book recommends. It fixed up my even ribbing, too!

Will have to try the ziplock bag/freezer trick- will tell you if it works!
