It looks great, especially for a first one! You're lucky, you have to shorten the torso. I usually have to lengthen mine about 4 inches which takes longer to knit!

Ah! I love the red Coachella! I reeeeeeally wish I skipped the short rows. Mine hangs indecently low, so until I knit a piece of lace or something I have to wear a tank underneath. *pouts*

Anyway, I finally posted pics over in the Completed forum, so go check them out!
13  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Bunch of Semi-New FOs! Coachella and Raglans- Image Heavy on: August 07, 2007 09:17:41 PM
Hi. *waves* First FO post here.

First up, my latest (that I have pictures of) Coachella:

I knit this in about four days using SWTC Bamboo in Electric Blue, double stranded. It only used just over two balls! I really do love it, I just wish I'd skipped the short rows so it wasn't so indecent. At some point I'm going to knit a matching piece of lace or something so I don't have to wear a tank underneath. I would have ripped it out except I really wanted to wear it to the Hanson concert I was taking my nephew to that weekend. (He's nine and it was his first concert. He had a ball)

Next up, my self designed cable raglan tank (I really need a better name) :

I cast on with an idea and winged it. I've had a little interest for the pattern, so I'm trying to write one up that makes sense. I used about 3 1/2 balls of Cotton Ease in Popsicle Blue (I believe).

Last, a simple striped raglan out of leftover yarn:

Let me know what you guys think! I'll have been knitting for two years in October... Smiley

So pretty! I'll definitely be using the pattern at some time!

So cute! I've actually been inspired since I saw your first one... I dyed me up some yarn to knit one for myself, probably with similar mods since we look to be around the same size. Smiley

Ooh, the pink puff-sleeved looks beautiful. That's my next knit from this book I think, after I finish my tube top. I'm knitting it in Cherry Red cotton ease, and should have enough left to make the puff sleeved from the same. (I'm a cotton ease addict)

I have a feeling I'm going to mess with the pattern a lot though. I love the look of puffed sleeves, just not the ones on this cardigan. I'm not sure if I'm going to change the increases or just shorten the sleeves we'll see. Plus, as with everything, I'll probably be adding a good 4-8 inches in length, most of which will probably be in the waist.

And eyeloveit : I would think the tube top could work for a pregnant belly. The lace panel is super stretchy, so if you knit it several inches longer and added some increases to the sides, I bet it would look really cute!

Well, I knit maybe 4-6 inches of my cabled tank, tried it on, and realized it was too small. *angry face* At least I have the cast on number for a smaller size, right? I'll probably frog it today, it was just too painful when I first discovered it. I usually need time to recover from these things.  Wink

I FINISHED!!! I'm way too tired to try and get pics, so everyone will have to wait until Saturday when I'll have all the ends woven in and it blocked.

I should have skipped the short rows, this thing hangs REALLY low. I tried weaving a piece of yarn through the neckline to see how it looked tugged up a little, but it really looks better hanging.

The concert is on Saturday, so I'm just going to wear a black lace cami underneath it for that, but later I'm going to use one strand of the bamboo to make a custom lace panel to sew into the front. I still have tons of the stuff (I used JUST over four balls for the tank!)

I really like it... I might make another one, excluding the short rows and adding an inch or two in the back panel before joining (I feel like it would fit better that way). *wanders off to peek in the stash to see what other yarn I could use for this top*

What's wrong with Hanson?  Tongue  Cheesy

Nothing. I guess I just tend to expect laughter, lol. I've been a fan for 10 year so...

And.... I did the short rows anyway. I'm so fickle. It was kind of fun though.... now they make sense to me.

I'm a few rows joined in the round, which is where I stop following the pattern. My torso is waaaay too long for that. I'm just going to knit and knit and knit and try things on and add my increases and decreases as they seem necessary.

I hope I can get this done by Saturday, I'm taking my nephew to a Hanson concert and I wanted to wear this.....

*pauses for the hysterical laughter to stop* Yes, I said Hanson.
