I did Eunny's Deep V Vest early this year and that was my first exposure to steeking.  When I was cutting the steeks on that vest I carefully snipped the yarn and held my breath the whole time.  With Venezia I just made sure I was cutting in a straight line and went for it with no fear.  It really isn't as scary as you think.  Especially since this yarn is so sticky--I promise, it won't unravel.

I am done with the body of the sweater and am on the left sleeve.  I am hoping to have it all done and seemed by next week.  Here is the body blocking for your viewing pleasure:

So here is where I am at:

I am loving this sweater so far.  I have to pay close attention to not mess up the pattern but I love watching it grow.  I can't wait to see all your pullovers started too!

Okay guys...

I am done.

To sum it up, I love it.  Totally worth all the time, effort, and detail.  I can't wait to see all yours finished too.  Details and more pictures on my blog: http://girlwhoknits.blogspirit.com/archive/2006/07/09/a-rambling-rose.html.

I am done with the left front and even added one of the roses just to see how it will look.  I am excited about how it is turning out but a little nervous about the fit--it seems small.  Really I need to block it until I make a judgement on that.  

Here is a progress pic:

I don't know how fast I will finish either since I am working on a few other projects too but I am really enjoying this knit.

Can't wait to see everyone else's progress!

I am done with the back ribbing!!!  It took a while but I was so thrilled with how it was looking and am so excited to get to the fun part in the front that I kept going.  Here is how it is looking so far...

I am seriously loving how soft this yarn is.

Here is my progress:

I had a temporary panic attack when I realized that I completely messed up and got confused by the row gauge.  I had the stitch gauge figured out correctly but I totally misread the row gauge.  I won't repeat it all here (more details on my blog: http://girlwhoknits.blogspirit.com) but in short, I thought that with my row gauge (26) being "under" the pattern gauge (30), I would need to add rows in order to make up for the missing length.  It dawned on me this weekend that I have been all wrong.  I may be under in numbers but that means that I will have longer stitches leaving me with an already longer garment if I followed the pattern as it is written.  I was pretty close to ripping it all out but I think I have come up with a work around and am going to continue on.

Also, I am for sure going to run out of my main color yarn.  I ordered two more skeins of it yesterday just to be safe.  So make sure you have enough yarn with this vest.  I am hoping to cut the steeks this weekend so I will see how much I can get done this week.  Despite my trials I am still loving the vest.

Here is my progress so far...

I decided to use 4's for the vest even though I am not getting exact gauge.  I just liked the way it knit up better then the bigger needles.  I am getting 24 stitches and 26 rows.  I figured out the math and am making a larger size of the vest to make up for the .5 extra stitches an inch and am adding rows to make it longer.  I am excited to keep going...

I finished!

I did this project for the Knitting Olympics and found it very fun but struggled with a few things like figuring out the sizing and getting an even gauge as it was my first time fair isle knitting.  But overall I am very pleased.
