That is so awesome! I have a couple NKOTB shirts and a pillowcase somewhere that I plan on making over one of these days... that's awesome! (I have to show my mom b/c she thinks my NKOTB collection is insane)

Oooh, I think I have this pattern. I love how you did the embellishment, I had thoughts of something similar... now I have an urge to make it. Smiley

The jacket is really cute. Sadly I only have enough for a pencil skirt.

I've been just using a basic straight skirt pattern with an elastic waistband (which I prefer) and the pattern is basically a rectangle, with a tiny bit of curve. I just start with that and taper and shape to my body, which has been working pretty well. That way it fits ME and not whoever designed the pattern.

(I wouldn't have bothered with the pattern, but I happened to have one in my stash so I figured I might as well make it work for its money)

I've been making some sleeveless (and a short sleeve) sweater from the guidelines in her book Knitting from the Top, which you can view here:

I've been looking at this book for awhile, but it was your FO's that have made me decide to take the plunge and order the book. I love top down sweaters, but I'm excited about branching out from the basic raglan construction... I'll be lurking here until my book arrives!

I've been staring at my cabled raglan tank I've been trying to write the pattern for, and I've come to the realization that I've got to knit another one.

I'm too much of a perfectionist for this, lol. But I do love the tank, and I think I have enough Knitpicks Shine in Blush for another one so.... next week I cast on!

Blossom was one of the first 'garment' knits I did. I learned a lot, including how to mattress stitch the seams. I never tried Anouk, but Blossom was a very simple knit, so I'd have to recommends that.

I'll have to try and find the pictures of the one I made. It was one of my first good knitted projects, so the gauge was really off and I didn't pick the best yarn, but it was pretty. I don't know if the person I gave it to ever put it on her little girl tho.  Undecided

I really enjoyed the bamboo yarn. It's the 'old' version of SWTC's Bamboo, so it was thinner and rougher than other bamboos. But double stranded it worked out really well, felt nicer and the drape is just fabulous.

Some of the other bamboos out there feel like silk. Better than silk. I highly recommend it. Smiley

to echo what other people have said- I LOVE that cabled raglan!  It's so hard to knit well for curvy hourglasses, and you really knit to your body... it would move to the top of my knittin' list if there was a pattern....

Aw, you're so sweet! I DO knit for my body, which is one of the reasons I'm having problems with the pattern... lol. I have to figure out a way to explain how to fit it to someone else's body...

Thanks for all the great comments! I'm not a super fast knitter, the raglans were both older FO's, it just took me awhile to get pictures.

And I'll let everyone know when I get the pattern done!
