Body Down, Arms To Go.

I posted this pic over at the KAL blog already, but thought maybe y'all would like to see it too. I've finished the body of the Simple Knitted Bodice. Though in this pic the bottom purl ridges aren't yet complete. Simple Knitted Bodice The body itself took just barely over 6 hanks of the Denim Silk. I have 7 more, so that should be more than enough for the long arms and the collar detail. I'm thinking I won't do the lace detail on the arms. I'm not sure I like the look. Thoughts? On stitchmarker news, I received my last set of markers (should have one more set coming but that person appears to have crapped out on the swap altogether) on Friday night. Thank you, SarahJanet! HPIM2645 I didn't post yesterday because, well, because. I think it was a hard day for everyone.

I agree w/the sleeve lace thing. I never cared too much for that. It looks good on you!

I love the stitchmarkers too! Pretty cool!

The sweater looks terrific. I've been eyeing this pattern, but wasn't sure what it would look like on an actual person. You look great in it!

Looking good!! I'd leave the lace off, it is lovely, but if it is a yarn amount..well you know..:)

It's looking great. But OMG, will I have to modify that neckline if I ever want to wear it out of the house without anything under it!

That's a great color on you, by the way. You look stunning in it.

Oh my god, it's so pretty! Like the others said, I've had my eye on that pattern for a while. I'm totally going to have to make it now.

And those stitch markers! TOOO cute.

The bodice looks great on you. I really like it.

The stitchmarkers are the best yet. They're fantastic.

The color of the Simple Knitted Bodice looks grand on you. I think the sleeves will look great with or without lace...it would even look good sleeveless!

Bobbi said...
