A Few Updates For My Cupcakes

You silly! I got my Ravelry invite a couple of days ago and I went immediately to the site to start uploading my info. I'm KinkyCoils over there as well. Feel free to add me as a friend/pal/homie, what'ev. I've been working on a couple of projects from the Fitted Knits book since my last post. I really like this book and plan to start another project from it soon. Here's an update:

Perfect Periwinkle Turtleneck Vest


Time: June 28th - July 10th.
Yarn:
Berroco Ultra Alpaca, Just under 3 skeins (220yds each)
Needles:
Size 6 & 7 US
Modifications: Omitted the turtleneck and half the back. Added straps. I had to rip the back one time because it was entirely too big for my back. I knit the back in the smallest size. It's still a little too big.

Airy Wrap-Around Lace Sweater


Time: July 14th - In Progress
Yarn:
RAM Angora (Mohair Laceweight), Just under 2 skeins (545yds each)
Needles:
Size 11 US
Modifications:
Added side slit to thread ties through. This will cut down on the bulk and add extra shaping.I plan to block it out to smooth out the stitches and make the cables pop.

Here is a pic of the RAM Angora yarn used for the Airy Wrap. I got just over 1600 yds from eBay from a British seller. It's a nice yarn very comparable to the original yarn designated for the pattern.


I hope to be finished with the Airy Wrap by Sunday, if not sooner. I will be sure to post pics.

I've also been moving Regan back into the que. I may complete Regan (remember her from the Rowan #41 magazine?) before I start the next project from Fitted Knits. I currently have the back completed and a portion of one front side.

Regan

Time: Mid May 2007 - In Progress
Yarn:
TSC Cotton Classic, 10 hanks
Needles:
Size 6 US
Modifications: None

I love your Purple tank! It's really cute! That airy wrap around is HOTT! Looks like it took a long time to finish!
