I've finished the Christmas sweater for my granddaughter. (whew!) I can't
decide if I need a course on using my digital camera or if I need new
batteries. I'm not happy with how the colour shows up. It's close, but a
bit more blue in real life. The shade is a denim blue. Anyhow, click on
the link, then click on "next" to see all 4 pics. ;)

Now that it's finished I can concentrate on the Candle Flame Shawl for my
sister.

Absolutely beautiful. Is the ridge going the length of the sleeve 'knit
through back loop'?
And the narrow border above the cable ribbing - is that a seed stitch (k2,
p2)?

(I just found this group!)

Oooh, very nice. I especially like the pattern up the sleeves - very
effective.

How pretty! What a lucky granddaughter you have. I also enjoyed the
picture with your little friend in it!

That is absolutely GORGEOUS. Did you use any naughty words doing that
complicated front? It sure doesn't look like the kind of thing you can
knit during committee meetings or in front of the tv.

Beautiful work, the use of the cable to frame the tree of life is a
fantastic addition, also the use of cable ribbing.

Great looking sweater! Nice use of cables and trees, both are things
I'm fond of I really like the sleeve design.

It's "slip the stitch knitways" on the RS
Then purl through the back loop on the WS

And the narrow border above the cable ribbing - is that a seed stitch (k2,
p2)?


No - it was knit every row (3 or 4 rows)

(I just found this group!)


Welcome! I'm sure you'll enjoy it - they're a great bunch of people - from
everywhere in the world. I'm in Canada, along with a few others, Mirjam's
in Israel, quite a few from the U.S., we have some in the Scandenavian
countries, and one or two in Italy - I'm sure I've missed some - but you get
the idea.
