how does this ALWAYS happen?

voila the top of bella. i swatched a 6" square. i tried it on as i went along. first the top, then the sleeves, then the top with the sleeves. suddenly with the addition of the lace, it's GIGANTONORMOUS. i still like it and will probably do the waist shaping without doing the increases again so that it will sorta maybe fit.

but now i have to go to get some coffee and some mike doughty before the roads freeze again and before i throw the damn sweater in the furnace. (no, i wouldn't do that.)

doh: okay, so i overlapped the lace wrong, creating a top that was 15 stitches (or almost 4 inches; gauge: 16 st = 4") too big. so i redid it, and am 10 rows into the body of the sweater. 78 more rows, and bella is finito!

that is so beautiful!! How is it gigantic? Is it supposed to be more fitted, then? Anyway, I think it's really pretty...wish I knew something about knitting so I could give you an educated opinion.

Anyway, you just wanted to show your....shirt again so that the rest of us (girls) could wish we had something to hold our up shirts. I guess I should just speak for myself :)

yeah.. it's hard to wear a sweater without having the twins in the picture.

like before, I'm totally impressed. I hope you get the rest satisfactorily figured out.
