I finished this on Wednesday, but Ben took my camera hostage and forgot it at work.
Off with her head! This requires measurements, and math. Now, its very very easy. Ben took my back measurement. I got gauge. Somehow, Eternal Embrace was pretty damn huge. And it would of layed a bit better, if you didn't have to go down 2 needle sizes for the ribbing. It would have just been big, not poofy in all the wrong places. A quick knit, I now know I will never construct a sweater like this again. Too much room for error in sizing. I'd rather have something too long than too wide. My row gauge was off, BUT it should of made it SMALLER.
Oh a better note, my goodwill towards stash busters got me this in the mail.
Mmm....soft. An excellent price to try out Misti. I know, I know, what kind of Alpaca knitter am I without having knitted (oh boy have I fondled though) Misti Alpaca! Not sure what I'm going to make, but all these colours will look good with black. Heh.
And yesterday, I got my package from Get Knitted! My Rebecca 31 came, and so did this!
Mmm...All Seasons Cotton. The colour is a dark grey, called Slick. It was only £20 for the bag! I call that a deal. I also got a few other balls, but those didn't ship at the same time.
And I like the new Rebecca as well. Then again, I'm a sucker for Rebecca. *sigh*
