Finished

I was was VERY afraid I had GROSSLY miscalculated sizing, but my sweater sizing improved greatly after washing. I did modify the sleeves by picking up 38 stitches on the inside cuff right at the point where reverse stockinette becomes regular stockinette. I knitted 2 rows and then purled 13 rows. This gives the sleeves a little flare without having to attach any gauzy material. My arms are quite long anyway so the extra couple inches feels much better.
I tried waiting for better lighting, picture wise, but it never came.....

All finished!

It has taken me some time because of Christmas obligations, but I have now finished my Greek Pullover!






I knitted the sleeves at the same time, and sewing up was very speedy!



    I decided not to add the frilly extras at the moment for a few of the following reasons:

  1. Because I want to get on with my next exciting projects!

  2. Because I don't want to have to go shopping around for the right colour of chiffon

  3. Because I quite like the Pullover as it is


  4. Because I know that on me slightly frayed bits of chiffon at my cuffs will end up very frayed and filthy!>



I have worn this already and am actually wearing it as I am writing this!

Please check out my blog where I seem to have more control over the format of the posts!!

Well, the body is done! I was uncertain how loose/tight fitting I wanted it so I went 2" more than actual bust measurement. Hopefully I guessed correctly. Now I have moved onto the arms, and they are coming right along. I'm knitting both at once to be VERY sure they are exactly the same. Seems to work well. Am I really supposed to wash and block before assembling?
I am also using the Kid Classic in nightly, and am very pleased with my color choice. No pictures today though, I left the house too early for there to be enough light to do my project justice.

Just started

I am pleasantly surprised by this yarn, it's so soft! I was nervous because it had nylon in it (unnatural fibers being the devil to me) but I think it will turn out okay.
