Introduction with FO's

Hi there! I have been reading this blog with pleasure for a month or so now, and it finally induced me to join. I've been on a little EZ binge lately, which is by no means over. But here's what's developed so far.

First attempt at serious colorwork and also EPS using a Whisky yoke pattern, and yarn. Modified rolled boatneck. Next time I might add waist shaping, and more sleeve length. I bought the yarn to do a male version in thicker wool for my husband. Looking forward to it.
Then, with the excuse of a dear friend who's expecting this fall I went on a BSJ bender:
The first is Ella Rae Classic on Denise 5's, which made about a 2T?

Aand the second is Plymouth Jean Nee cotton on Addi 4's, which I'd say is about a 0-3m size. Lovely drape to this one.
Both have hand carved heart buttons, from wood and bone.

Thanks!

  • For the very easiest waist shaping ever use a needle 2 or 3 sizes smaller for a few inches starting just above the hip. It looks great and is very subtle. This is especially nice when doing patternwork of any kind where you don't want to mess with the stitch count.

  • Your FO's are divine! I love the modified boatneck on your sweater, and the fit is perfect. As to the BSJ's, they're an inspiration.

  • Wow, thank you for all the kind words!!! And the needle change idea from Lilly, too; so smart and simple.

    This is my first time to join a kal, so I forgot I had to check back to read the comments; so I apologize for the belated reply, but really, thank you all!!
