1  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Re: Nekkid Man-along? Warning: anatomically correct (knitted) men ahead! NSFW on: February 24, 2008 07:20:00 AM
Just so you all know...I can't figure out what I did with my knitted nekkid woman. I have looked all over, in every box that still hasn't been unpacked, and I can't find it.

I may just have to start over. Sorry. :/  I can tell you that my basic differences was to start with two less sitches on the legs, put a few less rows in the legs, then added more increases up towards the hips, with more decreases to get to the waistline (i think i bunched those decreases within a few rows, too, for the pronounced hips and waist. For the boobs, I believe that I started out with bobbles just a few rows after the waist increases with one line of unincreased stitches in between the, uh..."boobles". I then decreased less severely at the same time as I was adding the arms. The arms were also started with two less stitches and made a few rows shorter, to keep in proportion with the legs. The head was made similarly to the guy head, as far as I had gotten.

I'll keep looking. I really hope I didn't leave her up north...

The sweater looks beautiful on you. I was a bit concerned that the sweater wouldn't be as attractive on a woman with a real body, but you have proven me wrong. I'm definitely adding this to my list of future projects.

To be honest, I never dragged my knitted nekkid woman out after moving six months ago. I should finish it, shouldn't I? (I didn't realize anyone was paying attention  Embarrassed )

wow, that looks nice. It appears to have retained the comfy factor too, with the matching pillow. Well done.

i agree with juliesnider on this one. There's not really anything I would knit in this issue. I did like the Frankenknits article, though.

Thanks so much for all of your suggestions. I decided to go with Simply Soft since it is relatively cheap, easy-care and (most importantly) I found enough in a color I think my mom will like (the heathered plum color).

You guys all really do rock.

i don't know if all laces are this difficult to catch the rhythm on (this is my first), but I just had to frog a BUNCH of it  Embarrassed oops.  It looked so pretty and then suddenly changed to a different pattern without me even noticing.  No more TV while lacing I guess Undecided
Did I just make up a word?
Anywho.  I still love this pattern...so far;)

When I did the bottom lace, I was okay, but when I started doing the lace on the sleeves, i kept getting confused on which way I was slanting the decreases. So, I hooked plastic stitch markers on the straight lines of knitting that my decreases needed to slant towards. It helped me keep my place until I got used to the pattern.

Btw, I'm done! (finally). I had to take it with me to meetings and work and do a few rows at a time until i got it all done.

I'm going to wear it tomorrow. I'll get some pics then.

AHHHHH! I can't get done! I'm only about thirty rows away from finishing the sleeve, but I can't seem to get motivated enough to do that instead of sleeping or staring blankly at the computer. :/

The fact that everyone's has turned out so beautifully really makes me want to finish mine. I'm really hoping that it turns out as nice.

*sigh*... the weekend is over, but i'm still not done with my final sleeve. I'll keep plugging away at it, and get some progress pics tomorrow.

Everyone's sweaters are looking gorgeous! I started slacking on the sleeves after starting and ripping a couple of times (oh, and also starting a job that kicks my butt.) I've now restarted the sleeves (doing them top down after picking up stitches from the armhole). I'm going to try to buckle down and get them done this week, so I have some reasonable FO pics to show.
