1  My new favourite dress! in Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects by D.I.Winer on: September 03, 2008 11:21:46 AM
Butterick #5243

I usually wear about a 20-22 off the rack - I made this in size 22. It could *easily* stretch to fit larger sizes & still look great on them if you used the right jersey.

I followed the pattern exactly, made no alterations & I LOVE this.

Oh, Superstitch - my heart breaks for you! You put so much time & effort into Thermal. Maybe some time apart will be good - who knows, in a month or so you might try it on & it won't be as bad as you thought?

I've finally put the buttons on mine & weaved in all the ends & I'm really, really happy with how it turned out:

I used elan Baby Cashmere - about 18 balls of the stuff. It's *so* soft. This took me 6 months to finish, but I'm glad I soldiered on.

The increases form a pretty awesome V effect,..... just so I feel like I'm making progress, here is a photo of my finished sleeve & the V's along the inside:

Here she is!!!!!!!!! (I also posted on the completed projects page, so I'll only put one photo here)

The MC, dark purple, dark green & light green are all Ella Rae classic, the gold is patons classic merino & the light purple is Galway.

I'm not sure if the stitch counts for the neck are right in the instructions, they seemed way off to me so I just sort of went with my gut - I'm not even sure of how many stitches I ended up with, but it was definitely more than 78.

I'm totally in love with this sweater, I can't wait for the weather to cool down!!

I've finished my 'Road to Golden' from the Fall 2007 issue of Knitscene!

I love this sweater! I switched up the colours a little bit & added an extra chart repeat to the length since it would have been way too short.

I used Ella Rae Classic for the MC & the dark purple, the other colours are a mix of Galway & Patons Classic Merino. I can't wait for the weather to get cooler so I can wear this all. the. time.

I'm knitting this! But you know that already....

adding a chart repeat won't mess up your sleeves when you attach them to the body. Gussets are worked on either side where the sleeves are attached, so the repeats aren't affected. As far as I can tell, adding a repeat won't mess with anything.

I've got 1/2 of one sleeve to go & then I can attach for the yoke! woot!

8  ANNEgurumi doll in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by D.I.Winer on: August 15, 2007 05:42:45 AM
I'm part of a book club craft-along. A book was chosen & then everyone had to make a craft inspired by the book. We read Anne of Green Gables & I made this little Amigurumi style Anne doll!

I made it up as I went along, underneath her dress her body is a little bit funny shaped, but it's all good. I'm super happy with how she turned out! Now she just needs a straw hat & she's done!

My first project from the book is complete!

The Back to School U-Neck vest!

I used 7.5 balls of Knitpicks Wool of the Andes & it took me about 2 weeks of very leisurely knitting. I love it & I think this will get a lot of wear.

I have a problem!

I bound off the neckline & it's too tight! I picked up stitches according to the directions & cast off like she said - making every 6th one a k2tog, but it's all gathered up along the neckline:

One of the things I love about this sweater is the scoopy neckline. Looks like I'll have to rip this out & do it over. It actually digs into my neck when I have it on!
