Wonderful!  I particularly liked to Pyrex bubble.
I sent the link to my boyfriend - an animation/film nut and this was his reply "The sci-fi story is really interesting. A lot of animation potential...  Obsession is interesting though"

He thinks I'm a nut coz I want more stash, and knit all the time.

I love your dolls, very Coraline, even before Coraline comes out!

This is from Interweave Knit's Spring 2008

A really easy knit.
I used Cotlin on 3.75mm.
The pattern runs really huge and I had to stop increasing for the bust after the 2nd set.

To stablise the armholes, I did a round of single crochet which also gave the edge a pretty look

I messed up the neckline, but I don't really think that can be seen.  Aiyah!  Can wear good already la.

The fit was really nice when it was done

But washing it caused it to stretch width-wise and shrink length wise.  The shrinking was ok, but the stretching makes it not so fitted anymore.
Oh well...

Still love it, though.
Except that Cotlin is warm warm warm!!!

He needed a sweater to survive in the Arctic chill that is his office.
So I made him a sweater

A very simple raglan top down sweater - no cables or anything else, just deep ribbing at the hem and a rolled collar and sleeve hems.

The yarn is thick and heavy and when I used it for the Wall Street Cables, resulted in DeQuervain's syndrome - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DeQuervain%27s_syndrome

Anyways, in different light, he looks like a medieval knight in chain mail, or an Irish militant.

We both love it

My sunshine Rusted Root
As I was knitting it, I was regretting the colour - so bright you need shades.
But am very pleased with it, apart from little bits here and there - like the fit.  It's not terribly fitted even though I did the XS and my gauge was smaller than stated.
Ah well... Loads on Ravelry did say the pattern runs big.
The 'real' colour

I tried to add more poof by doing the M for the poof part of the sleeves, reducing to the XS, and working an elastic band at the edge.
Some poof at least...

Quite happy with this, but a little concerned that it will bloom and grow since it's 100% mercerised Egyptian cotton from Garn Studio - Muskat
