That is so cool!  I miss LARPing in a big big way.  I always loved it when people went all out on their characters, it made the experience so much cooler.  When I played Kanar, the guy who ran it was such a stickler for details- we couldn't bring food in plastics unless very necessary (hence my rustic bread got wrapped in muslin instead of the plastic it came in) and everyone absolutely had to be in costume, sweatpants not counting.  I had so much fun making my elf outfit, best sewing project ever.  Then, I played VTM and my character was a relic herself (instead of needing a ritual item, I WAS the ritual item) and had mystical-looking tattoos all over her body- I had a blast drawing them with a tattoo marker before every game, even though it did take about 2 hours to do so. 

Oops, I blathered.  What will you play NOW?

Love the strap modification!  I too am a small-chested lady, and fear the tube top.  I want to make this now!

Love it!  It's so flattering on you.  I wanted to knit this but balked at the expense of the recommended yarn.  This is a great substitute!  Did you carry along the karabella glimmer with the cotton on the lace, or is it by itself? 

Great job!

Bloocanoe:  The pattern wasn't hard to follow, as long as you follow it one piece at a time.  The tricky parts were the sleeves- that cabling is not the easiest thing ever, and some people I've heard that have made this didn't read the directions all the way through and didn't know to increase.  Whups!

I thought it was going to be too short, too, but it came out perfect for me.  Things usually end up being short on me, but this worked out.  It may be from the additional rounds I knit, or my gauge might have been a little off.  I dunno.  It's an easily fixed problem- measure a sweater you like from the hem to the armpits and knit accordingly.

I have to say, it was not as difficult as I thought it would be.  Raglan-type sweaters are great for first sweaters because you don't have to worry about sewing in the sleeves, which always intimidated me.

Thanks for all the nice comments!  They're really appreciated.  Especially since this is my very first sweater that I've completed successfully!

Love the belt with that fabric!  It really makes the dress.

Beautiful job!  I should give this pattern another go.  Love those buttons, they really make the sweater!

Finally!  It took me long enough.  I started this in October of last year, and finally finished it just last week, in time for the nutter weather to take a nose dive.

A shot of the sleeves:

*crosses fingers* I hope the pictures work!


Pattern: Mariah, from Winter '04 Knitty
Yarn: Harrisville Designs Flax and Wool, color Spice, about 5 balls
Mods: Made the 33" mod bust size, left off the hood for a simple collar, decreased a heck of a lot more than called for in the yoke.

Even more details sur le blog.  Thanks for looking!

I love this!  I love AA, but don't have one even remotely by me and am scandalized by the prices on things I can easily make myself.  I'll pay good money for some green boy-shorts, but a rectangle sewn together?  No way.

I can't wait to make this!
