Thanks to Julie for giving us the pattern!
I had to Frog this a couple times till I figured out what I was doing wrong. :rollseyes: I wasn't doing the double decrease correctly. Anyhoo... here it is. I took the photo outside and adjust the white balance so it looks more natural now. This pattern forgives a multitude of sins in the lacy part, too. Heh.
You didn't waste any time! That's looking great--I got the pattern, too, and look forward to making it.
Jan, it's beautiful! Girl, u got on yours quick! Like I told Julie, it's on my ensemble list, along with several others...I think it may be my vacation knitting I LOVE IT.....IT'S GAWGEOUS....JOB WELL DONE :cheering: :cheering: :cheering:
That's SO pretty! And, love the color~
Wow, Jan! :inlove:
Keep posting pics of your progess!
Those sunny, warm mornings of coffee, birdsong, and knitting really do wonders, don't they?!
Thanks all! I have a sneaking (sinking?) suspicion that this might be too small, but we'll see. The pattern was sized for size 8 needles and I only had 7 so that's what I used. If it's too small I'll give it to my niece and start over with bigger needles when I get them.
ahem...the pattern recommended 8s, but said to use whatever size needed to knit to gauge...are you telling me you didn't knit a swatch??? :fingerwag:
(sorry, couldn't resist)
Heh.. I did a swatch when you first asked. My problem is I'm extremely limited in the needle dept. I also find I tend to knit tight when knitting (for the stockinette) on the metal needles. I have asked for a bunch of knitting stuff for Christmas so I can't buy anything now. :rollseyes: It's hard to be sure how this will fit till I get more done though. I've added a couple inches to what you see here.
Then again, maybe I just have a big head? :roflhard:
:mrgreen: Just giving you a hard time....
You might be pleasantly surprised. The first one I knit to test the pattern looked like it was going to be the right size, but it was [size=7]GINORMOUS[/size] and I had to frog it.
