My Elfin Bride



I finally finished my Elfin Bride sweater from the Domiknitrix book. It is probably the most difficult piece I have knit. I finished because I was knitting it for the KnitAvalon KAL, so luckily I had a deadline. I finished with lots of calls to my knitting friends and visits to the LYS. So thanks to everyone who helped me finish this project, it is far from perfect-- but I am happy with the end result!!

Wow. That is one awful darned foxy sweater on you. It's foxy on it's own, but you do it justice. Damn, girl!

I totally love that! And it looks so great on you. The only sweater I ever made weighs about 50 lbs and I chose this horrendous orange color--what was I thinking?
I LOVE this whole blog, btw. Awesome. ;)

Samantha said...

It looks great but I was wondering, on the left shoulder shaping, how the " increase at the beg of row only" was supposed to fit into the feather tip method. Please help!
