1  Re: Cherie Amour-along (knitty fall 07) in Knitalongs by Singlemom on: September 24, 2007 03:11:34 PM

I have been a total slacker this weekend. It took me all weekend just to get through the few rows left in the back. Here's where I'm at so far:

I'm sure all of your Cherie Amours are still beautiful, but I also know what you are going through. Although I'm okay with how it looks in the mirror, the sweater looks so much better when modeled by my bed. Of course, when my fiance takes pictures of me, he thinks it's funny to catch me off guard, and get the grossest double-chinned, no-necked pics of me he can. But, so maybe y'all will feel better, here's a modeled progress pic of cherie, fat arms and all (double-chins and necklessness removed).

I swear, there a boobs and a waistline in there somewhere...

cocodisle, yours is going to be beautiful. In fact, everyone's so far has been stunning. I'm just a few rows into the upper lace:

KatAutumn, I hope you get an answer about the pattern soon. Otherwise, I might just wing it.

The Moda Dea Gleam is usually $7 to $10 a skein (wayyyy too pricey for my budget). Fortunately, I snagged some from a Meijer up north right after new year's. They had it for 90 percent off. I got 12 skeins of the amethyst and 10 skeins of rubelite for $1 a skein.

It's just been waiting in my stash for the right project. Depending on how many skeins I use, I may have to make one in rubelite, too.

I'm doing it in Moda Dea Gleam in Amethyst. I have five repeats of the lace done so far:

In case anyone's interested, here are my progress pics for the knitted naked woman:

As you can see, I've done quite a bit of shaping for her. As you also may be able to see, I had to unstuff a bit of the knitted naked man to come up with enough yarn fragments for her. Luckily, I was too lazy to cut the yarn I used to stuff the knitted naked man into too small of sections. (Most of it had already been precut on the skein by my daughter when she was quite a bit younger.) You might also notice a bit of spotting on her from a spilled drink accident. I decided not to try getting rid of the spot until I had her all tied up.

If you can tell, all of those little ends coming out of there are from where I cobbled bits together to finish her. Now I only have to find enough yarn and stuffing to stitch her up and repair the rest of him. Their permanent identities/features are still under debate.

The body of my askew is nearly done. I've spent a lot of time doing non-knitterly things, but I still hope to have this done before I move next weekend.

Here are progress pics for my (sort-of) askew:

There's a bit of a view of the knitting.

Both front pieces together. The eyelets created by the yo increases will eventually be home to some sort of lacing.

I'm torn between working on this, finishing my knitted nekkid man, trying to create a knitted nekked woman, and finishing my huge grannysquare stash-busting blanket....sigh.

I've finally finished knitting my knm (knitted naked man) Some pics:

stitching and stuffing knm. I also added a bit of a wire skeleton to him, to make him a bit more poseable.

Here he is, showing off in all of his censored glory.

knm striking a pose

I still need to give him features, but I'll do that after I'm back from my trip downstate.

My boyfriend also wants me to make a matching female. I'll keep you updated on that, as well. Wink

Here's my nekkid man so far:

He looks more like an elongated rabbit or a yarn mummy than a nekkid man. It's okay, I still love him. I will probably have the body finished tonight, and save the naughty bits for tomorrow.

Here's my version. It's still too low-cut (and a bad pic to boot -- it would have been nice if my guy would've actually gotten off of the couch to take the pic, but I guess I can't fault a free photographer  Roll Eyes )

It looks a bit better in person, but I can't see wearing it too much during our Chicago summers. I might use it as a layering piece under a suit.
