I love it.  I hope to be finished with mine soon.  I had to start it over, because I ran out of yarn on my first one.  The yarn I used has been discontinued for a very long time.  Anyway, I started again, but I'm still longing for the one in that original discontinued yarn.  Sigh.

Finished!  Well, now that I know how this thing looks, etc, I know what to do and not do when I make my next one.
This one has some kind of random increases and an ill-fated attempt at making a buttonhole.  I know how to do them, but I was trying a new way to do a 1 st buttonhole and that didnt work so well..  and then I realized that the button I was using was too small for the  garment so I took it off.  allora :\
However, it does look nice on.   It still needs a good blocking though.
Sorry I don't have any "action shots" yet.  It's kind of hard to see how big it is in that photo.
Oh and I used Lamb's Pride Bulky.  It's soooo soft, but makes me sneeze.  I must be allergic to mohair?  Regular wool doesn't do that to me.  Or maybe just the tiny fibers flying everywhere irritate my nose.

haha, and yes, I AM going to make another..  this time with some kureyon big I got for 50% off at littleknits.com
I'm waiting for it to arrive in the mail...

I really like the way it turned out!!!  The extra ribbing on the bottom is nice!   My mohair makes me sneeze, too...  I think it is the fibers.  Didn't do it when I was knitting it, but it DID do it when I wore it.  Who knew?

Anyway.  I really like it.  Super job.  Just keep knitting...  Right Lois?

aww thanks.   I'm pleased with it, even though the arms are this close to being tourniquets.  I.must.block.

I definitely like the longer ribbing.  I think the next one I make will have increases in more strategic places and I will do better with the button/buttonhole at the bottom.  I will also make sure that the arms are not too tight.  I kind of like having this more as a hybrid between the boobholder/minisweater and the capelet.

This is just awesome. You sent me the pattern but I am stuck. Guess I have to have a classic pattern. You know, chain 50, sc in first 6 etc... I tried but failed... Kiss

So you're going to crochet the capelet instead of knit, yes?  I'm not sure if a crochet version of this has been posted; then again, I don't crochet so I don't know how easy it would be to convert.

I think someone crochetted back on, like, page 10??  It's a white one, I think.

I had the feeling that perhaps Carey was trying to read the pattern as a crochet (a "classic" pattern) pattern, when it's of course knit...?  Let us know if you figure it out, dear!  Huh
