WIP - Bombshell
Here's my knitting world cup project in progress. I had to post this, I'm just so happy that it fits! This is my first proper garment since taking knitting back up again after a 20 year absence in March this year. When I knit in my teens I made a cotton cabled sweater, it was very easy and straightforward. Bombshell is far more tricky, complicated and a challenge compared to that long ago sweater. I'm LOVING knitting this - loving how it fits and how it is shaped to flatter and the clever way the sleeves are done.

Hope to finish this soon =D

It is made using Debbie Bliss Cotton Angora blend in a sage green colour. The photo doesn't do the colour justice.

That's lovely! What pattern is it? I mean, publisher/author wise.

The pattern is Bombshell from the Big Girl Knits book

I LOVE the shaping on this - they have used the ribbing to create this fabulous shaping at the waist and under the bust. It is like an inverted V of ribbing which then smoothly goes down and joins the waist ribbing where you switch to a smaller needle to "create" a waistline, then back to the larger needle to continue to the end.
