Good News, A FINSHED OBJECT TO SHOW OFF!



Yes, it is true........I finished the #14 Hooded Pullover by Deborah Newtown in Vogue Winter 2007/2008 Magazine.


Here are the photos....of the back and front. I downsized the
sweater by casting on less stitches and it worked out fine.

I am real happy with the finished sweater. Love the yarn I used
sensations. It is absolutely fabulous to use for knitting. I can not say enough good things about this yarn.



I loved this pattern, it was well written and I did not find any errors, which makes the knitting process, so much more enjoyable. I only cast on 118 sts, so the pullover would not
be so oversized, since I am small. It worked out great.

I followed all the rest of the pattern, from the armholes up

I really liked the center waffle pattern and am considering making a scarf out of this pattern




I am now working on a UFO from 2005, from Spring 2005 Knitter's Magazine. It is called off the grid vest. I may add sleeves. Finished the back and am working on the front, hopefully it will be finished by the end of the weekend.

My next project is already planned........# 26 diagnal rib pullover from the new vogue magazine. I am sticking to my policy, one finished UFO, before any NEW CAST ONS....I did do the gauge sample....LOL!!! I am going to use some blue heron yarn that I got on ebay years ago.

Will post photos of the vest and the pullover this weekend......

Happy knitting to all,
Smiles to you,
DC

Love love love your Hooded pullover! I just posted my FO on Ravelry. You made an excel chart of the row/patterns? You are a goddess. I want to be your friend forever! A co-worker asked me to knit a version for them and I have to admit I have been stalling because I HATE following all those different lists of what pattern.. The short of it is can I please have a copy that excel file? Is there anything I can do for you in return? You are so awesome!
