9/12 is when the Interweave comes out and I will be sure to pick it up. I imagine you will make the Josephine. I like that one and, the complete dork in me loves the Woodstock Duster.


Thanks for the IK Crochet preview...hadn't seen it yet!

Great bell-sleeved top...very elegant in black.

Erica B.

Very cute top!


That pullover is just so you.

The preview of the IK Crochet isn't flooring me, but I do like that Josepine pullover.


Looks great, although the one for you looks better (as it should). :)


Love that top, and I'm betting your bio Mom will too. I'm not totally blown away by the new IKC but I tentatively like the Josephine pullover, the Maiko jacket and the Cinnabar coat. I'll be waiting to see better pictures.


How could she not love it ? It's beautiful. You're making some fab stuff these days !
Hope the cold continues to improve.


Woo hoo witchy woman she got the moon in her eyes! Absolutely love it! Is 42 the largest that pattern goes up to?


It looks wonderful! I'm sure your bio-mum will be delighted. :o) Can you post a link to your Simple Knitted Bodice photos please? I'd like to check it out. We're about the same size and I've been thinking of doing this one. Would love to see yours and hear what you think of the pattern. :o)


It's hard enough to do two socks the same in a row... two sweaters the same would be very frustrating (I should say will be... I'm planning on making both my daughters the same sweater soon).

From the thumbnails, the Josephine Pullover pattern looks promising.

Also, for some reason, I'm drawn to the Maiko Jacket (I have been since I first saw it... a while back, since I believe it is the cover sweater for a Lily Chin book that came out a bit ago)... very unusual for me, since it looks like it's made from a novelty type yarn, and really... I have a feeling the shape might not look good on me at all. I like it nonetheless.


Thanks, everyone! It was a little nuts making two tops from the same pattern so close together (Leisel - I doubt I'll ever do it again!) But I'm glad it's finished - it will look great on her.

Deneen - Both Josephine AND Woodstock caught my eye. Like Lani, I'm really anxious to see closeups of some of these patterns. :)

Terri - I'm at the boring top bit on the Bodice pattern. I've been working on it today & hope to have some decent progress to show soon. One thing - I'm NOT knitting it in the round. LOL - Yeah, I'm nuts, but I hate working sleeves on dpns SO much I'll rewrite a pattern before I do it. ;) We'll see how it turns out!

Thanks Emma - I *am* feeling better today. I managed not one but two naps which helped. As long as I can make it through my 3 classes tomorrow, I'll be a happy camper. :)

Wendy - Yes, 42 is the largest. You could, theoretically, make it bigger, but since the shaping is raglan, that would make the sleeves bigger too.


As much as I like black, I think I like the maroon pull over better. Great color on you!

Hope you bio-mom likes the black one - if she won't wear it, I will (smile)!

I always kind of enjoy having a Lauren Becall voice once or twice a year - either that, or we call it the "boozy mama" voice. Hope you get better soon.


Your bio-mom is going to LOVE it, I'm sure. You just never go wrong :)

Glad you're over the sore throat. I never thought about what happens when subs get sick. A sub for a sub? But not this time, bummer.

Kristen from MA

Jeez, Bron, you're a knitting/crocheting MACHINE.


Something that struck me funny is that I always go for the bigger sizes for comfort. Now seeing a smaller size on you made me realize what everyone always says to me... wear your correct size. That looks fab on you, and I am sure your bio will love it! I like the color that you choose for yours. Great job!

Alida Sharp

I like things too loose rather than too tight. I think it looks great!


It's funny, Marie - I was thinking the same thing regarding the color. Usually I'd go with black, hands down, but the burgundy seems to show the pattern better in this case. :)

My voice, unfortunately, has gone south. As in laryngitis. Sigh. Try teaching class when you can't speak above a whisper! Yuck!

Jillian - Well, I DO go wrong, I just don't go public with it on my blog. hehehe Yeah - I really wish I could call in a sub in this case. Not being able to speak is a real handicap. :(

Kristen...That's me - "I, Robot." hehe

Thanks, Kelly! It's hard for me to dress for my correct size, especially now that I've lost some weight & don't need to "hide" behind looser things.

Thanks, Alida - Really, there are good points to both tops, tight & loose!


I like the looser version for your mom, simply because as we get older, many times that person may not like things to be tighter and this isn't your size anyway, so it's bound to be bigger and looser on you than your mom. I hope she likes it. I'm interested to see how your Simple Knitted Bodice works out, since you're knitting it flat.
