Okay, I know this is an old thread, but God bless you, Anaximander. There was no way I was going to figure that out on my own. Craftster has come through for me yet again...  Wink

No worries, Dina. I figured you just got busy.  Smiley And don't feel like you have to get ANY rows knitted before coming back.

Okay, folks, I'm going to be at Montague's at 7pm tonight, so if anyone feels like joining me, that would be cool. Otherwise, I'll have some quiet time with knitting and tea, which is always a good thing. Wink

Yeah, the one I was trying to start sort of failed to take off, but I'd be happy to try again if folks are interested. We were doing Wednesday 7pm at Montague's on South Tejon. Is that a workable plan for you, Liv? I wouldn't mind switching to some other time/location if necessary.

Those are great!
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / lacy baby sweater from vintage pattern on: October 07, 2007 12:25:54 PM
This is a sweater I made for my niece from an old pattern booklet my grandma gave me...looks like the booklet is from the early sixties maybe. I updated it by making it in a sassy color instead of the white the pattern suggested. I also used buttons to close it, instead of a single ribbon tie. (What baby would be able to resist pulling out the bow and tangling the ribbon?)

Here is a closeup of the lace pattern, with a white thing inserted so you can see it better:

The yarn is Dale Baby Ull. Probably the thing I'm most proud of with this sweater is the finishing. You honestly can't see the sleeve seams from the outside--the lace pattern looks unbroken.

I'm going to get it sent off to my niece tomorrow before she gets too big to wear it!  Smiley

I like the color you used much better than the eye-hurty yellow in the book. Great job!

Thanks for the nice comments!

It looks wonderful. How did you like that yarn? Is it itchy? I have sensitive skin but have thought of trying it.

So far I have it mentally filed in my "less scratchy than average" category. My skin is pretty sensitive too, and so far, while I would never mistake this sweater for cotton, I'm planning on wearing it with just a camisole underneath.

I just finished this sweater last night:

Yarn: Knitpicks Andean Silk in Sangria. I used about 11.5 balls for the 41 1/2 inch size.
Pattern mods: I knitted the body in the round up to the armholes (instead of in two pieces). It's so much faster that way! I also made the sleeves about four inches longer than the pattern to accommodate my extra-long arms.

Overall, I'm really pleased with how this turned out. If I were going to make it again, I might add some waist shaping, and a person could also use set-in sleeves instead of the drop-shoulder kind for a more tailored look. Mostly, though, I'd say this is a good pattern.

We are going to meet again this coming Wednesday, 9/19, 7 pm, Montague's. All types of stitchers are welcome, including folks who don't know how to knit but want to learn.  Smiley

So maybe let's try to meet this Wednesday night, 7pm, at Montague's, 1019 South Tejon. Please come if you're at all interested. I'm a little nervous it's going to be me and like one other person.  Smiley
