More hourglass pictures!

First of all I want to thank all the wonderful ladies who have already commented on my sweater.  Thank you for making me feel so special!  Knitting people are the best!

I wore my Hourglass sweater to church rehearsal tonight, and it’s quite comfy. The KP mainline seems to stretch a bit, but nothing outrageous for a cotton blend. I asked Marc to take pictures for me tonight… but he snuck up on me instead.

and here’s the actual posed photo

My only issue is the hem, which still wants to roll a bit. I’m not sure if I want to mess with it, because I think it may just be the result of the sweater construction. I may tack it down again to see if I can get it a bit more flat. But overall I’m just thrilled with my sweater! I especially love the neckline and the bell sleeves. It was a tedious knit, but I think the results were definitely worth it!

Now I have to decide on my next sweater. So many choices…

  1. Hi there, I came across your site on the knitters blog roll. What a wonderful sweater – such a great colour on you. Which pattern did you use? Happy knitting! 🙂

  2. It looks great! How many balls of the mainline did you use? I have some in my stash. I never though of using it for this sweater. Yours looks fantastic.
