My sleeves are still drying after their blocking... I'm anxious to seam and see if I'm going to be going down the Artlady road...
I agree Dollyce is the most patient knitter I know. Her results speak for themselves, though! Maybe she learned that patience raising 4 (isn't that right?) kids!?! Anyone who knows me will tell you that patience is not my strong suit. That is why I love emergency work, it is go, go, go! I've knit a whole 'nother top while waiting for Sylvi to block and dry so I can get on with the finishing!!!
Also, I wanted to say thanks for the link to your friend's Sylvi. It's amazing how many mods people are doing on this pattern. It really seems to inspire people.
I am really sweating over mine (and I'll be literally sweating in this weather with NO AC during the try-ons!!!) because I don't think I have the skills to do the lining thing. I am amazed that all my row gauge calculations mean nothing when GRAVITY is involved. Even with my large frame and large shoulders (I am 5'10"), I could have left the whole thing AS IS and it would have fit fine. Oh well, hindsight is 20/20.
