1  Re: Ruffled Surplice - IK Spring '07 in Knitalongs by chevykaylor on: May 27, 2007 10:39:46 AM
I just finished mine!

I used Sugar'n Cream yarn on a cone, because I can't afford to spend $80 on yarn. I couldn't get it to knit exactly to gauge (a size 9 needle was too tight, size 10 too big). I went with the smaller size because the picture in the magazine seemed to have kind of a shapeless fit.  It came out great, and looks great on my sister. I added a row of single crochet around the neckline (also around the hole for the surplice wrap), which made a huge difference in how "finished" it looked.  Anyway, I made this sweater for only $12! (Please note that it hasn't been washed or blocked yet--right off the needles--so I'm sure the neck & ruffle trim will lie a little flatter.)

My beautiful daughter, asleep in her carseat:

A few images from a little book I am working on, "Things In My Backyard." Hopefully, I will come up with a more creative title (suggestions welcome).  By the way, if you ever REALLY LOOK AROUND in your backyard, you will be surprised at how much you can find there.
