It's been a while since I checked back in, because, like kitty824, I was a little disappointed with how mine turned out.  It isn't too big, but the scoop neck is uncomfortably low and the increase-decrease deal on the sleeves makes my shoulders look funny.  I blocked it and feel like it has potential, so sometime soon (maybe tonight) I'll be unpicking my kitchener stitches at the straps and messing around to adjust the width and length of the straps.  Then I'll almost done!

I look forward to hearing more about everyone's progress.  And kitty824, you may want to try throwing yours in the washer and dryer and see if the proportions come out better.

hi, all!

curlymo and kitty824... thanks for the kind comments!  the yarn that i am using is from frog tree ... i ordered a bunch from webs.  the color is #850 (no name ... it's purple) - it is 85% pima cotton, 15% silk and rated "sport weight" at 155 yd/50g skein.  for this project, i used size 6 needles.

i haven't posted, lately, because i somehow managed to infect my computer with another insidious spyware program(s) ... it took me forever to rid my system of the last infection about a year ago, and i can't seem to find the cure for this one!  i brought my laptop home from work and by some miracle got the wireless card to work, so i am in luck, tonight!

i completed my camisole up through the finishing aspects (still need to crochet edges, weave in ends and block) yesterday.  i tried it on and sadly have the problem where the front is way too low for my liking!  i am not busty, so i do intend to include the gathering (that's really what attracted me to this design in the first place!) ... but in order for me to wear it, i need to frog a few rows from the front straps ... *sigh* ... i am soooooooooooooooooooo ready to start a new project!  i think this one took me 4 weeks to get to this point!  i made SEVERAL mistakes along the way - i got so frustrated one day, that i was yelling at it and throwing my needles/crochet hooks across the room!  psycho!!!!!!!!!!!!

I finished mine, though I still might try to add sleeves (dunno if it's too late).

I was lucky -- even though I wasn't getting gauge, it ended up fitting perfectly.

Beautiful! I think you could still easily add sleeves if you want to... but you look great in the top sleeveless.

I'm crystalnickel on Ravelry!

I think it looks nice the way it is, but if you wanted to add sleeves you could do it pretty easily by picking up stitches around the armholes.  That's what I'm planning on doing with mine but I haven't even started on it yet.  Nice work!  Smiley

ceedah - that looks so great!  Seeing a pretty fo is always great motivation. 

I'm almost done with my adjustments, so I hope to do the finishing tonight and have a pic tomorrow.  Hopefully.

Yay, thanks, guys.  Smiley I like how it fits without sleeves, too.. but since I used wool, it seems like it would be much more practical if it had sleeves. We shall see.

FABULOUS, ceedah - it looks great on you!

were you thinking to add long or short sleeves?  i was picturing the camisole with flutter/cap sleeves (in a slightly open stitch pattern) while i was working on mine... but i wouldn't know how to do that (unless i did it in crochet, but i was really in this so i could get the hang of knitting)

great job! Smiley
