Emmaline Sweater

This is a fully finished Emmaline Pullover from the Spring/Summer 2010 issue of Knitty. I started it three days ago at work and finished it just now.

This is the fastest sweater I've ever knit, but probably because I made the Small size to fit my headless, armless dress form lady here instead of the XL size to fit my 40in boobage. It's top down, super easy, and would be a great first sweater for someone to make. There was just enough shaping and stuff to keep me from getting bored, which is what usually kills most sweaters I start.

I also finished a hat for my Mom this week, and finished weaving the white scarf that is on the loom in that picture. Of course there is no pic of the scarf because I gave it to my friend Julia as her super late xmas gift before I thought about taking one. Oh well, I'll get a picture of the next one.

There is a post coming later tonight about the Tulsa Fiber Fest I went to last Sunday. Stay tuned!

Looks fab! Perhaps it's the yarn but your version is what caught my attention!

That's a very pretty sweater... and that teal one too. You are something else! 40 inch... uhm... I'm just gonna try not to think about that one. :)

40 inch boobage!!!! I am battling 44 with a few d`s on the end! That's one reason for the c25k program :)

Three days?? For me maybe three years. :) I've been wanting a nifty top down sweater to try. I've never done a sweater before due to my short attention span.
