That looks really great.  When I saw that on VK I thought 'Great design, but completely unwearable in real life' but you managed to keep the good design elements and make it really wearable and cute.  I'm impressed.

I just finished my Le Slouch.  I did the seed stitch version and knit it flat because I hate DPNs using Debbie Bliss cashmerino aran which is now my new favorite yarn.  (So soft, so springy!)  It's a great pattern, too.

How cool!  Have you seen the knitted Uggs?  They call them crochet on their website, but they look pretty knitted to me.  I generally hate Uggs, but I'm all for knit footwear, so it's on my to-do list to figure out how to make some for myself (so I won't have to spend $100 on a pair.)

That's beautiful.  The yarn is to die for.

Is it awkward to wear?  That's my only concern.  But you're rocking it!


Thanks!  It's not awkward at all to wear.  Well, except for the questions from people- 'What are you wearing?', 'Cute sweater!  Is that a sweater?' and 'Where did you get that?  I want one!'  Just to prove it, here's an action shot:

Now that I look at it, I guess it could also be awkward if you mind people being able to see your armpits.  I don't.  But you might.   Tongue

Did you knit thumb holes into the end of the sleeves?

Nope, they're just really long.  You can't tell from the pictures, but there's extra wide ribbing on the sleeves too, to match the turtleneck.  I made them really long to contrast with the shortness of the body.

what kind of cotton cone yarn - i really want to make it!!!

Probably sugar and cream or something like that.  It's just your basic dishcloth cotton from Wal-mart or Jo-Ann's.

I love it!

Question from a nub: if you use DPNs, can you keep going and turn this into a long-sleeved shirt?

yeah, z is right, it's really just your basic top down raglan with the yarn over detailing.  I was thinking as I looked at the pictures (and as it's snowing outside) that it would also be really cute in wool with long bell sleeves, maybe with the yarn over V's at the end of the sleeves.

Yeah, it's just a basic top-down raglan.  I bound off the front after a few rows, then stopped the back when I separated the sleeves from the body.  Or where the body would have started.  After I finished the sleeves I just added a turtleneck on top and picked up the stitches around the bottom and did a few rows of ribbing.  It's really easy, but I had issues with fitting (read: I'm bad at math) so I had to rip a few times before it fit the way I wanted it to.

That is so cool!  I'm going to have to try out this enterlac thing.  I keep seeing it everywhere but it looks intimidating.  Was it hard?

This is one of my favorite knits of all time. I call it cozysexycool, because that's what it is. And also, because I like TLC. Don't go chasing waterfalls... Ah, middle school. Those were the days. Anyway. I was going for a nice chunky turtleneck sweater, but with sex appeal.  Because hiding in huge sweaters all winter gets dull, but shivering in your cute little top is even worse. So here is my answer. True, I haven't found an answer to world hunger, but for the answer to the winter blahs, I'm your girl.
