I finished mine a couple of weeks ago but couldn't figure out how to post pictures. Now that I've figured it out here they are. This is the first full-size person garment I've made (up until now I've been teaching myself how to knit by making baby garments for all my friends who keep gettting pregnant). I feel pretty proud. Thanks to all who helped explain how to do a purl YO. I also made a little flower to go in my hair when I wear this.

That one looks great!  This pattern really is so adjustible.  I made one for myself before I made the one for my daughter.  I had to make it bigger than the original, and I made the sleeves a little longer, and the body a little longer, but I didn't do any special shaping to it, though, but next time I will definetly try that.

a question for those who've modified their caplets......i like the ones that have been made a bit larger - that come close around the front (almost close enough you can add q row of buttons).  i don't want to add more than one button (at the top), but i think i prefer more boob coverage.  i'm definitely not busty.....so it probably doesn't need too much adjustment.

oh yeah, so my question is: What did you modify in Julsey's pattern?  How many stitches did you add in which rows and how did you add them (what type of stitch did you do to add them?)

I guess that was more than just "a" question.

thanks in advance!

oh.  another question.  just realized that my size 11 needles are straights and that will be a pain to knit this project on.  can i use  size 10 circs with my lamb's pride bulky?  or do you think i should go and buy size 11 circs?

The only mods I did was to add a few rows on the sleeves and at the bottom.  My Lamb's Pride one came out a little too short, but I only had 1.5 skeins... 

On the second one I decided to make the sleeves even a few more rows longer, and instead of the garter stitching, I chose to do seed stitch on the sleeve.  Again, I was running low on yarn, so I did only two rows of garter stitch at the bottom, after adding rows, and it still came out nicely. 

Hope that helps.  Smiley  Good luck.

As for the needles, I would do a gauge swatch (as someone nicely suggested to me earlier in the thread) and see how it turns out.  You might have to add rows or cast on more stitches to come out to the same measurements.  Do a 4inx4in swatch and count how many rows/stiches you have, then *someone* can help you figure it out.  I'm not really good at that, but many of the girls are here.  Right lois?   Wink

Aschenby, how many stitches did you start out with for the baby one?  It would be a good gift...

I used size 10s and cost on 39 I believe and did 11 sets of increases.  Super easy, and she'll be able to wear it for a long time!  I'm not quite sure what newborn's measurements would be anymore... but I am sure that one would knit up super fast!

It seems everytime I talk to a friend she says "oh ya and by the way, I'm pregnant" I don't know if it's my age or something in the water?  good thing I learned how to knit... Smiley

I've finished one also -- I really love this pattern.  It turned out a little small, so instead of a pin I crocheted a couple of chains and attached them so I could tie it at the top.  I made another, a little bigger, for my pregnant sister too (pregnancy being the theme here lately!).  I used the two colors for mine because I was busting my stash and didn't have enough of either color to do it solid, so the ribbing is all green and the stockingette is all blue.  it's the peruvian wool that elann.com carries.

aijay - love the two color rendition - and what a way to stash bust.

sbw179 - very cute and I love the flower - did you make up the pattern? Can you post pattern or a link, please?

Everyone else - lots of talk about the new small/baby size version (aschnebly - that is certainly adorable!) and all the pregnant friends. I'd like to remind you that everyone will be getting the baby something but since this is such a fast and possible inexpensive knit why not brighten the expectant mom's day with something unexpected. It looks fantastic on sammilyn9(great job) and is something that will actually fit now and after the baby arrives.

I really like that flower as well, sbw179.  it would make a great pin, from a little stash yarn, to pin the capelet.
