View Full Version : FO: Manos del Uruguay pullover
07-22-2010, 12:26 AM
My own "re-jiggered" design. Started with a "basic" pullover, but by the time I was done changing just about everything except the basic schematic...it has re-invented itself!
Here I am...no makeup, flat hair...but loving the fact that it fits me pretty good,
even now before I lose more weight. By Fall-Winter, it will look better on me.
Yarn: Manos del Uruguay Clasica Wool "Naturals" (http://www.jimmybeanswool.com/knitting/yarn/ManosDelUruguay/WoolClasicaNaturals.asp)
Original Pattern: "Extra Quick Rolled-Hem Top"

That looks like a comfy, snuggling pullover. I will we had sweater weather down here. Winters are just too mild for pullovers. Cardis are better for layering.
I always love to see your FOs!!! Thanks for sharing.
Wow, that's gorgeous! I love the subtle color changes of the Manos, and the stitch pattern on the bodice. Lovely work, and you look great!

That's gorgeous! I love what you did with the neckline - so flattering and will look great with many different "undershirt" options!

Oooo, it's pretty! I love the color changes, I haven't knitted with Manos yet, but I've been wanting too!

I haven't knitted with Manos yet, but I've been wanting too!
Knitting with Manos can be a royal PITA. If it's not the "thick-thin" issue driving me nuts,
it's the color variations that drive me nuts. Maybe some knitters are more relaxed about thick-thin issues, and color variants...but I try so hard to make Manos knit up like "regular" yarn!
I love the yarn, don't get me wrong, but when I'm done with a Manos project,
I always think "never again"! :wink:

Artlady, I have not been over here for a while ... you are looking years younger and fabulous! You look like you have lost many many kg's? Congratulations.
Keep on jiggering! Great end result! :thumbsup::woohoo:
It looks nice and warm for those high altitude cool temps.

I love it!
It looks cozy and comfy on you. Very flattering.
Thanks for having a picture of you modeling it because garments look so much more atractive that way than when they are shown flat.
