so, i'm just about finished with my second one.  i'm up to the bottom ribbing and just wondering... maybe i should keep the garter border going throughout the ribbing.  good idea?  bad idea? Huh

Did you put the garter in the ribbing at the neck too?  If it were me, I would want the neck and the bottom edges to match.  But, that part of the neck edge is going to be covered by a broach, so it may not matter.

Hi everybody. I just finished my capelet. It was a fantastic knit, really fast and simple.

It's adorable! I need to find some yarn so I can try this one again.

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.

i haven't checked this topic in a while but everyone's work looks so beautiful.  i finished one for my mom in a nice sky blue wool for christmas but didn't get a chance to take any photos.  i'm worried that she doesn't like it because she has yet to mention wearing it -- very uncharacteristic of my mom -- and didn't write anything about it when i asked her in an email.   Sad    maybe she's just waiting for the perfect day!? Undecided 

a fast and easy knit, otherwise.  they've all turned out really cute.

So, I started knitting this thing at the beginning of January, had a few hangups, and finished it a few days ago.  I did pretty well considering it's my first knitted garment.  But when I went to try it on... it was just a little too small.  the neck has to be stretched to come together, and the arms were definitely too small.   I usually wear a medium in stores, so I figured it would work for me... but not quite. 

I unravelled it up to the place where the sleeves split off, and I'm trying to figure out if I maybe just didn't knit far enough for the sleeves?

I'm using Debbie Bliss Silk Alpaca bulky on size 11, so the gauge is really similar, I think.

I was also thinking about unravelling it all the way and adding a stitch to all 5 sections, which would mean I'd cast on 54 stitches... but then I remember reading something about how an uneven number of stitches is better?  I think mostly I just need the front and back to be a bit bigger, but I'm having conniptions trying to decide. 

Now that it's halfway unravelled the collar seems to fit around my neck perfectly  (aaaaaahhhh!!!!)

ana, i usually wear a small/medium but i had to cast on 17" worth of stitches for a comfortable fit.  maybe you should try that?  she suggests an odd number of stitches so that the k1p1 rib starts and ends in the same kind of stitch.

and as for the sleeves, measure around your arm and continue the yarn over increases until the sleeves match your measurement.

hope that helped. Smiley
