View Full Version : FOs: Knitscene Tulips, Pinwheel blanket

A couple of FOs, recently finished.

Knitscene's Tulips sweater (fall 2006 issue I think):


Pinwheel baby blanket in cotton:

I'm so glad the blanket is finally done! The sweater took me the longest because it took a while before I finally picked out beads. I had to use a crochet chain for the belt since I did the yarn overs backwards (oops). But that was a happy accident, I think, because the beads are fun. Only thing is, I wish I'd made it longer since it makes me look short (I still wear it though).[/img]

Those are both gorgeous.

Was the blanket a total bore to knit? I was thinking about making one for a GF of mine who is 'in the family way' at the moment. :teehee:

but please tell me if it is painful to knit.. because I would just as happily knit a sweater or something.

that blanket came out so pretty! I tried making one from that pattern, but I couldn't get past working those first few fiddly rows. :wall:

Thanks! I'm glad you liked the blanket. I hope my hubby's cousin likes it too =)

If you like complicated stuff, it might be a boring knit. I did have trouble paying attention and kept having to frog stitches to go back and put in YOs where they belonged. But it went so fast and that's what I liked about it. Considering its size, it's probably one of the fastest things I've done.

The only thing I was wondering is if my center part is too tight since the edges don't seem to lay flat. Does it need blocking? I didnt' bother since I thought that it probably wouldn't matter since it will go through the washing machine.

Amber, the sweater was made with Knitpicks Elegance in the color grass. I love it! It's so soft. It also held up to a lot of abuse. This was my first time doing lace and I had frogged the first part of the right sleeve at least 5 times.
