Yay! I finished it!
I started it on Saturday and I finished early Thursday morning so I could wear it as my birthday shirt.
I made the Medium size.
I used Lion Brand Microspun yarn and i hate it.  I love the color and it looks fine, but its already fuzzy and the yarn was pain bc it kept splitting. not fun.
But I got tons of complements.

If corn oil is made from corn, and vegetable oil is made from vegetables, what is baby oil made from?

How cute! And it fits you perfectly.
I don't like Lion Brand either but, eh, it's cheap.

Its really pretty! I cant beleve it only took you a few days to make! I cant wait to get my Happy Hooker book now. I love knitting, but it seems to take so long to make tops.

Very nice!  Beautiful work!   Smiley

Have you thought of using some light spray startch?  Sometimes that helps to keep the fuzzies at bay.

that is gorgeous!! microspun, unfortunately, is no friend to crocheters--because of the splitty factor. but it does look quite beauitful on this top. awesome!

Wow that looks great!  I can't wait to start mine...after I finish a billion other things!

Thanks for all the props!
I'll definitely try that spray starch thing.  It is really terrible yarn, but it only cost me $12 and i didn't have the funds or the time to journey to me lys. sigh.  i'm ordering yarn and plan to make myself another and possibly one for my plus sized mother.  That is always the true test for crocheting a garment, weather it looks like a blanket on a bigger woman!

I did my sleeves and back, and am starting on the front.  I wished I'd been able to get it done for my birthday (yesterday) but oh well.

I'm doing mine in cotton from knitpicks--they are quite reasonable and the cotton is nice to work with.  Mine's in a dark blue, is yours too or does it just photograph that way?

Awesome job!  I'll have to post pics when I finish.

Someone had told me there was a correction on the errata, but I didn't see one for cupcake.  Am I missing something?

Mine is actually a really bright purple.  No natural light in my room when I took the pictures.  That's why i wanted my bf to take pics of me outside but he thought that was weird.

There actually are corrections in the errata for cupcake they are for the sleeves.  Check the file again http://www.bust.com/knithappens/snbhh-errata.pdf
I actually think there might still be something wrong with the errata for row 2 of the sleeve edging.

i did it the way it said in the errata and it looked funny so i did what made more since.
my row2:
ch5, sk next 2 sts, sl st in next dc *ch2, sk next 2 sts, dc in next st, ch2, sk next 2 sts, sl st in next dc(center dc of shell); rep * accross

looking at the errata now, it says 18 ch 2 spaces.  so it is definitely missing that ch2 in the directions.

Very pretty!  I agree with you on the Microspun...I loved it (so soft and shiny!) until I actually started USING it.  One of my first projects was a shawl made with it, and it is quite a bit fuzzy.  I wonder if a sweater stone would help.
