Rosi can bake.
Rosi can chat on the phone.
Rosi can model.
Rosi can even salsa (well, too!).
But, Rosi can most definitely NOT pilot an airship. I’ll leave that to Zylphia.
I saw this pattern somewhere in the knit-o-sphere and I KNEW I had to make one. It was a bit slow going at times because: sock yarn + size 4 needles + size 46″ bust = a whole lot of stitches on the needles at once. But OMG is the finished sweater ever so worth it.
I only did the lace insert in the front as I felt it didn’t need it in the back (and it made for a faster knit).
I didn’t gather the neckline with a ribbon. I just let it lay across my shoulders boat-style.
I have to wear a tank under the top so my boobage doesn’t show. Heh.
The sleeve detail is awesome. I love the gather at the top, the length and the bit of lace at the bottom.
The pattern itself is well-written and easy to follow.
I gotta tell you that this is the sexiest sweater that I own. I have worn it ALOT after I made it and compliments abound when people see it. I feel great when I’m wearing it and feel all sexay!!! See my excitement?!
So, Zylphia, have fun on your airship. I’ll continue having fun in other ways!
