I just started this a few days ago and have all the shaping done for the back, so far.

I'm using Sirdar Country Style 4-ply in sage that's been sitting in my stash for too long. I also turned the hem as I went along so I won't have to sew it at the end.

4  Button-up sleeves... in Knitting: Completed Projects by whereskat on: October 10, 2006 02:37:12 PM
The first garment I've knitted without a pattern!

I used about 3.5 balls of Wendy Supreme Cotton DK in "lilac" on US4/3.5mm circular needles. It's basically a bottom-up, seamless raglan with the sleeve construction modified to be "buttoned up." The button bands were picked up and knit in 2x2 ribbing along the length the of sleeves and neck.

More details on the construction can be found on my blog.

For those who are curious, here are photos of the inside of the socks:

Left: leg; Right: sole

If you're working in the round, one tip I've often heard (and use) is to knit with the work inside-out. This helps keeps the tension from getting too tight. Making practice swatches also helps to get used to the technique and to figure out what works best for you.

6  Argyle socks... in Knitting: Completed Projects by whereskat on: August 18, 2006 11:35:53 AM
Inspired by Eunny's mini argyle stockings (http://www.eunnyjang.com/knit/2006/03/miniargyle_stockings.html) and my own impatience to wait for a pattern:

I used the chart (http://www.eunnyjang.com/knit/2006/02/and_were_off.html) she posted and the rest I figured out on my own.

More info can be found on my blog.

I finished Corinne last night...

I shortened the length (just knitted the skirt shorter than called for before decreasing) by about 20cm to accommodate my height...or lack thereof. It hits about three inches above the knee so I'll also be able to wear it with pants without making myself look even shorter. More details  can be found on my blog.
