Here's my Oblique from Knitty (http://knitty.com/ISSUEfall07/PATToblique.html):




It's knit in Berroco Ultra Alpaca.  I love it & have worn it a lot already!  This yarn was pretty perfect for this sweater soft & fuzzy, but with enough definition for the lace.  I used a bit more than called for, though, even though my gauge was right on.  I dont usually knit the same color as the pattern calls for, but this one really wanted to be grey...  As for mods, I didnt do the fold over cuffs, but that's all I changed.  Sorry I don't know how to make the pics not huge...

Wow---very pretty!  I love the cross-over front and the delicate-looking buttons.  Also, you have lovely eyes.

Oh, it's just kittens.

I want to leave this world the way I came into it:  naked, screaming, and covered in someone else's blood.
