Hiya - I've just started this - using the suggested yarn and cast on 180 stitches because I have big boobs - I've been using 3.75 needles but the cable is 80cm.

Do you think it'll be ok, or will it be wrong? I don't really get the whole circular needle thang, as I've only recently started using them - does the extra length matter? The stitches aren't stretched or anything.

:is confused:

It sounds like it should be fine; if you have any excess you can just pull it out a little (google magic loop and you might get some pictures to help you visualise how this will work).

I just posted pics of mine but will put one here on the kal too!

I used Debbie Bliss Cathay and did an extra repeat for boob room.  The screw up under my armpit is where I dropped a load of stitches and then picked them up again.

Progress pics:

I'm about 4 inches in - I got bored with the ribbing so only did about an inch and a half (I am really impatient) This is my first ever non-accessory knit Smiley Wooo!

Recommended yarn and needles - let's hope it's the right size! How would you even go about trying it on without it coming off the needles? Is there some magic trick?

I transferred about a third of the stitches to scrap to try it on (and still ended up dropping a load).

I just finished mine.  Done in Classic Elite Pima Cotton Tencel, icey blue, on #4 bamboo circs.  I really enjoyed it, and it taught me to pay better attention when you think you have an easy lace pattern! I decreased in the front and back before placing straps, and left the top as is rather than adding ribbing.  I thought I'd prefer the ribbing but ended up frogging it.  I bound off tightly and between that and the decreasing, I have no real problems with the straps, except that they'll probably have to be shortened.

Here's mine. I just finished it up today. I used microspun, so it's a little hot for now. Maybe I'll wear it tomorrow in my freezing school (stupid air conditioning).

I am joining this KAL as well -- was browsing the completed items and spotted this one -- it is beautiful!

I am doing my 1st version with Lion Brand Baby Soft, since I have so much left for baby stuff -- I casted on 180, because I am currently a 38", but I am wondering if this will be too baggy in the torso area? the yarn is a fun fuschia color and is 60/40 of acrylic and nylon. No shine, but  soft and simple, as this is also my first non-accessory knit.  I am going to begin some basic socks ( either a training sock or the pomatomous sock), and  am already 1/3  of the way through the carmarthan shawl, which I hope to have all three done by my birthday in August.

More than enough time, right?

I am going to update my fotki  and blogspot albums for my knits as I reach the halfway points on my projects.

quenstalof - I'm working on this right now (I joined the tank and tubetop KAL cos I thought this one had already gone quiet) and 16" does seem a little long. I tried measuring 16" from my armpit and I think it went past my hip! I'll probably try on the cami at 14" then wing it from there.  Smiley
