Looks really great Quincy! is that colour "Mist"?

Hey Emms, yes that's the Mist color.  It's a nice dark grey.  I really liked working with this yarn.  I think it's a great sub for this project.

I have a silly question on this. I'm getting ready to start on my sleeves, but as I was looking at them, if I just pick up the stitches being held on the scrap yarn, I'm going to have big holes in the armpits! should I be picking up some stitches from the raglan increases, or do I just seam up the underarm holes when I finish?

I'm asking because I made a raglan baby sweater and even with picking up stitches, I still had some underarm gaps to seam up.

my arm holes weren't going to be big enough so i just picked up some stitches in the armpit w/a total of 24 and magic looped them in the round.  got rid of my holes and any seaming that was needed Smiley

Kewl. My sleeves are going to be big enough with my chubby arms to use my smallest circ. I'll just pick up a couple of the stitches.  Thanks guys!

So I just finished knitting this in a really cheap and crappy black acrylic wool.  It's the first garment I've ever knitted.  I bought some hand painted merino wool from Marta's Yarns, but I wanted to have a practice go on some cheap wool first.  It knitted up really easy and quickly (especially for someone who's only ever made scarves before).  Only took me 2 days!!  I will definitely knit my "good copy" asap.  Now all I need to do is find a brooch to use as a clasp.  Will post pictures tomorrow.

THANKS JULSEY723!!!!  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

Edit:

Yay for piccy's!!  Here they are.  Sorry about the ridiculous expression on my face.  The photographer/mum said she wasn't going to get my face in the photo.



Comments/criticism appreciated!  I thought it turned out pretty well for my first garment.  Now all I need to do is find a brooch and get on to knitting the other one on the non-crappy wool.
