This is the beginning of the first sleeve on the only sweater my daughter ever asked me to make for her. She saw it in an ad for Karabella Aurora yarn, so when it became available I got it. I'm using Dale Svale because it's machine washable, and that is a must. It's very splitty, though, so this is going to take a while as I have to pay attention to each and every stitch.

Notice the use of Denise's gorgeous stitch markers.

Don't hold your breath--I still need to finish my son's never ending scarf. I did get some of it done today while the kids at school got an incentive movie. If they did 80% of their homework for the month they get pizza and a movie. Four of them made it (out of 17) so from 12-2 I got to watch Shark Tale and knit. Not bad, overall!

It was very entertaining! You could actually see the actors' in their 'fish' personnas.

Very pretty pattern!

It's funny how all of those animated cartoons pick up the personality of the "real" actor. That somehow makes it more entertaining for me.

This is the pattern, but looser--my daughter wants to be able to wear different colored tanks under it.

Is she going to go rock climbing with her shoulders held back like that when she wears it, too??!! ;)

Of course! She's hoping to meet a hunky rock climber in her new sexy sweater. That's why it has to be machine washable! ;)

Nice sweater but yeah why do they *have* to put the models in such stoopid positions. And don't give me the ole "we're just giving the public what they want" jazz. Cuz no one wants that.

The picture that is with the pattern is just a woman standing there, but I couldn't get it to copy. This is the best I could come up with. It is stupid, though, the lace would get snagged on the rocks! :rofling:

Thanks! I've gotten almost up to the decreasing on the first sleeve and I've gotten the pattern memorized so it'll go faster and faster, I hope.
