Wow... this is the first time I've actually liked this sweater. Your version's so cute!

Wow... that is truly gorgeous... and finding out that it's in that issue of rowan makes me still angrier that I just bought romantic knits for butterfly rather than the magazine. Oh well. What a loss.

Wow! I'm so excited to see that Cherry works on someone who isn't completely flat chested! That's a gorgeous sweater, and I really do like the idea of velcro... does it catch on the wool, though? Does it look strange when it's open? Great job!

Hmmm... the ripple part of that looks like it might actually work. Probably something along those lines would be good.
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Lace patterns for variegated yarns that aren't hideous? on: May 30, 2007 01:33:02 PM
So, my boyfriend is SUPER-sweet, and he bought me a ball of Scaefer Anne yarn as a bribe for getting through my finals without having a complete meltdown. It's a really gorgeous colourway-- yellow and hot pink and orange. The colours are super-saturated and gorgeous, and the yarn is deliciously sproingy and haloed. Only problem is-- I don't know what to make with it! I was thinking of a lace scarf or stole because I have a liking for working billions of stitches on tiny little needles (masochist) but with the couple ones I've tried, the colour all swamped the lace pattern, and it was awful. Now, i don't want something complicated, but I would get bored with knitting row after row of garter, or something, and I don't think it would do the yarn justice.

Can anyone think of a simple lace pattern that is SLIGHTLY interesting, but will either work with the colour changes, or won't be swamped by them? The other alternative is making socks, which I'm sure would be lovely, but I think my boyfriend would be offended, as he's a muggle, and the yarn is so gorgeous I would rather prance around with it on display.

(I was thinking perhaps feather and fan, as a last resort. But if there's something interesting to try, then I'd love to hear about it.)

(Also, things like slip-stitch patterns might work well.)

Hm... maybe I'll just wrap the skein around my neck a few times and call it a scarf. Or pet the beautiful little yarn cake. That would work, no?

Hmmm.... I wonder if this would actually be supportive for bigger breasts if it were made with a non-stretchy stitch like linen stitch or something... Or maybe it would be best to have some give. Interesting. It's very cute, though. If mine were a tad smaller, I'd make that in a second. As it is, I'm intrigued, but I have to try to figure out how to avoid saggage/ too much jiggling.

That's gorgeous... can we see a picture of it on? I have trouble visualising stuff if it's not on a person.
