That is one gorgeous sweater! It looks machine knit - and I mean that is a great compliment. Tongue bereven stitches! Well done! And the colour combo is spot on..

I love intricately cabled mittens and scarves... They look real squishy and nice to wear. Smiley Well done!

I can only echo what others have said.. It fits you like a dream, and I really didn't like the one in the book.. It looked so .. bulky! I really like what you did with it. Smiley Well done!

Lovely! These are on my to-knit list after I finish the Retro Rib Socks from Favorite Socks... The Embossed Leaves socks are also in that book. Smiley Can't wait to get started on them as soon as I find the proper green!

That Berroco suede isn't available here (not that I'd use it if it was - it looks ... iffy to me Tongue), so what would you guys suggest as a substitute? I've never seen the suede yarn, so what's it like? Tape? Tube? Regular, plied yarn? Huh

Just my thoughts on spit-splicing: while it is indeed the most brilliant way of connecting yarn ends (I do it all the time), I'd advise against it if the yarn is very textured or shows texture easily. I did this with Rowan's 4-ply Soft, and, well, take a look. Second picture, way out on the left - see the ... lumpy unevenness? That's where I spit-spliced, and didn't notice until I'd completed the back.

Also, don't "roll" it against other fabrics, even jeans - if you've got lint or loose fibers or dog/cat/animal/human hair on the fabric or jeans, it will felt into the yarn. Take this from a girl who spit-spliced two black ends on a cream-ish textured pillow... It was NOT pretty.

ANYWAY, I really like your shrugs (did you twist your stitches?); the first one has a nice colour! Smiley Very chic for the current navy/sailor fashion...

It's stunning. I keep clicking on this topic every time I'm on craftster just to look at it again. Roll Eyes The yellow colour is amazing... It's just the right shade! Cheesy The white ribbon accentuates it very well.

That is beautiful. Smiley Any chance of an action shot?
20  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Re: Interweave Knits lace nightie on: June 02, 2007 10:04:13 AM
I've been eyeing this for a long time now, but with exams and x other projects, I don't think now is the time. Sad

AWynkoop - yours looks lovely! It looks great in the cashmere. Wink Are you going to use it as a nightie, or as a top?
