These are very lovely!!  You make me want to become a knitter. Smiley

Hopefully this doesn't sound weird or offensive, but you have the perfect hourglass shape. *jealous*

Thanks all - I'm so glad I posted these!  And I'm happy to take the body compliments!

What lovely sweaters!!!  I have a basic question -- how did you make the stripes on the arms come out so perfectly symmetric??  Did you find the colorway at a certain point and just use that as your guide?  That assumes that the dyeing was done pretty consistently too....

I can never figure that part out!

Thanks for sharing,

I did start the arms at the beginning of the same color and it worked out well.  All of my skeins were from the same dyelot, and I probably got a bit lucky along the way.  Through the body of the sweater I saw how the skeins and colors were going, so I was able to assume how they would end up on the sleeves.

They're both gorgeous but I'm especially fond of the the first sweater.  I love the colors.

I LOVE the first sweater. The shaping makes it! Well, that and the stripes-who can resist them!
