Posted a pic in the SC knitalong as well  Smiley  I guess I really want to share!

http://www.scissorina.com/images/RHSC1-thumb.jpg

Red Hot Somewhat Cowl, http://knitandtonic.typepad.com/knitandtonic/2005/12/the_somewhat_co.html
size: 36" bust
yarn: Blue Sky Alpacas Alpaca Silk in tomato, almost 6 skeins (one and a quarter skeins less than what was called for!)
needles: addi turbo circ's, sizes US4 & 5

Well, golly - I really kinda wish I had added some waist shaping, but I'm pretty happy with the outcome overall. It is a little on the big side, but fits at the bust just perfectly. I think if I were to make another, I'd join the body a bit earlier to keep the sleeves a bit closer to the 'pits and see how much that would effect the bust area - and add some waist shaping so it would be a little more sex kitten-ish. Smiley

But it's still red hot, damnit! And it's gotten a lot of wear recently.  Smiley

It took me about 3 weeks total - I found it to be a really quick knit!

Thanks for the kudos, gang!  Cheesy
