Psyched!
Finally finished a sweater, flaws and all, that I might actually wear occasionally when the weather here cools down! Made a sweater...whoo-hooo. NOt perfect but functional and that's a start

Now, it would probably be helpful if I could tell you what substitute yarn I used, but, like the pattern designer, I also live in Japanand I suspect that the random on-sale acrylic-mohair blend is probably only available here.




I'm a beginer at joining anything, so the front center was a bit tricky at first, but other than that I would recommend the pattern for newbies like myself

Lovely! Grace is on my list of things to do, especially now that I see how pretty it is in real life!

I love it!  I'm delighted to see that the pattern looks fabulous on a slightly more curvy figure than the model in knitty (it gives me hope for myself!).  Congrats on a beautiful piece!

I agree with emling.  I'm of a slightly curvy nature myself (okay, I've got boobs) so I've got hope that when I make it, it'll look swell as well. 

Buggirl, finishing and joining are the bane of my existence so congrats for doing a great job on it!

Okay the yarn was something you may never find. Roberta di Camerino brand, type rezzonico made in Italy ( and judging by all the kanji, shipped for my Japan market) I could have actually bought the original japanese yarn she used but I saw this color and swooned.

Busty ladies, be sure to make the pattern slightly longer, I added about two inches and it is still pretty short due to the lenght shrinking on acount of to my own chest-line width.

i finished all the pieces for this! YAY! but now that means i have to join them. EEK! i started out with the shoulder seams, using the technique described in SnB. but the seams are kinda bulky and noticeable. am i doing something wrong? or maybe it is just behaving this way because i used cotton yarn? is there another method i should use?

here's some pics, if that helps:



and a close-up of the seam:


any ideas, anyone?
