Gosh Bron, what's gotten into you? Next thing you'll be knitting socks.

That's some pretty awsome glitz in a great color. I've found it is easier for me to knit with furry yarns than to crochet. I'll be interested in your opinion.

Hmmmm.... Okay Bron...I've been thinking about "Shirtail"...I will print your post and stick it in the book for future reference. What difficulty would YOU grade this project as????

:) Gotta get back to work.....L


Rest assured, Marie - no socks! Yes - knitting is MUCH easier with frou-frou yarns. But I did a mesh pattern with this so the crochet wasn't too bad. In other words, I kinda cheated. :::wink:::

Lisa - Honestly, some parts are beginner once you have the pattern established. But...I'd rate the shirttail/shaping parts as "intermediate with scratch pad at the ready." There's no way I would've done the two fronts together - too much "at the same time" stuff to keep track of. You could do it, no sweat, you just need to pay more attention in some parts than others. :)

Well, sounds like a candidate for the soundproof booth to me!

I'll keep your thoughts in mind. L


Ooooh I really like your shirttail sweater. I did one once with that collar type of construction and it turned out really nice. :)
