Jo: I only unravelled the sash so far, I still have my front and back pieces, I will take pictures and show you what the acrylic looks like.  I've never knit with cotton before, only wool and acrylic blends.  I am trying really hard to at least use up SOME of my yarn before I buy more (hopefully different varieties off eBay).  I like your color choices! I am hoping for my cotton version to have light colors like that.


here are the pictures i took tonight (just for you Jo!)


The acrylic isn't TOO bad.....though I'm not sure it can be blocked? I wonder how it does after a few washes.....I think it's going to pill.

Not bad for lounging around the house in though........

Here is mine, I saw this on Knitty a few months ago when I picked up my sticks again and knew I had to try it.  It was my first attempt at lace, and it was pretty easy to knit.  I used a pale yellow acrylic yarn (looked like baby yarn, can't remember now) and was thinking if I made a bunch of these and quilted the pieces together, it would make a cool cover for something.

When I find a nicer yarn, I am definitely making another, longer one.

It's me ! mendontknowknit! I created this acct and deleted the other one instead, my husband reminded me last night that I just registered kibblesandknits as a domain name and should use this one to get the name out a bit.

Anyway, what color are your sleeves so far?  Like I said, I'm just using acrylic, I think it's a worsted weight, for this one.  I'm not sure how it is going to seam up in the end, but this one is just my test sweater...I tend to try out patterns for the first time with a cheap yarn, and if I can get through it without many problems, I look for a nice yarn.

I'm doing my sash in a sort of brownish tan color, and the upper body will be a green (I believe the yarn label called it 'Thyme') I contemplated putting the two contrast stripes on the sash in an off white, but changed my mind.  I've always knit english style so while I'm knitting the sash part, it's hard to watch TV at the same time Sad

If I ever get through this one, I'm considering getting the Tahki Cotton the pattern called for maybe in a lighter green shade and cream....with sash and collar in the cream, the rest of the sweater green.  I was thinking the sleeve cuffs could be the contrast color too....I'd like to see this sweater in lighter colors, so far I've seen them in pretty dark shades.

Picking up stitches on the sash sounds like a great idea.  Seeing that my sash has already been destroyed, maybe I should try that too.
