@kowgiirl.up I'm knitting it up in the wool used on the cover photo.  I'm not sure the colours look exactly the same as that photo but they are lovely.  I have some green jeans I've been wearing all summer and I'm keen to make some tops to wear with them in the autumn and winter.

The knitting shop where I bought the pattern didn't have that colour in stock but pointed me to another shop they thought did - they were so nice about it that I bought another pattern and some wool from them.  I really don't want to lose the small shops because of all the current problems with lockdowns etc.  I haven't knitted in ages so it was nice to see some patterns with designs more like ones I would buy in the shops.

@Turquoise , I LOVE that sweater. What colors are you doing???

I admire all of you knitters and crocheters out there. I could use a nice warm sweater as I am freezing in my office today. I'm ready for summer again. :))

Your top looks great @kowgiirl.up but I know what it's like when you're not sure about something.  Maybe hiding it in the cupboard for a while will help you see it with fresh eyes.

I want to sew up a few more knit tops and I've bought some sweater knit fabrics to have a go at making some cardigans - I need more layering pieces now the weather is changing.  I've washed and dried the sweater knit fabrics but still haven't totally decided on patterns. 

I fancied knitting a sweater as it's nice to have something I can pick up and put down and to keep me away from too much screen time in the evenings and I've started this one (James C Brett JB453) - it's a chunky wool so should be good for a slow knitter like me  :)

Quote from: Susan in Saint John on October 22, 2020, 08:18:02 amSometimes you have to trust your instincts.  I'm not quite sure what a "butterfly" sleeve is.  Is there some way to sew the butterfly flat or together that would make you happier?  It might be a weird looking seam -- just call it a design element.

True, I do need to trust them. To be honest, I'm not used to seeing myself in fancy clothes. I normally wear tees, tanks and jeans so to see me in this throws me "off". Kinda weird I know LOL.

Here's a pic of the top Susan.

I made several alterations to the pattern. The top had gathers at center back that I didn't like. I added more room below the breast point front and back so I could get more airflow. I also made the butterfly sleeves longer. I would've liked the top or cap of the sleeve to lay flat against my shoulder instead of poofing up but the way the pattern calls for the sleeve/armhole to be finished there was no way to do that that I knew of.

Quote from: kowgiirl.up on October 15, 2020, 10:53:37 amI have the first top almost done and I do not like it. I suspected I may not when I made the muslin up but I convinced myself to move forward with it. It has butterfly (?) sleeves that I thought I would just love them dang it! I'll get it hemmed up and the top may have to live in the closet for the rest of it's days LOL. There is a sleeveless version that I might make up but I'm going to put the pattern on the back burner to let it simmer for now and move on to something else.
