Q&A with theneedlegnome
You did it!!!!!! It is so pretty. What a marvelous result. I'm just getting started. I hope mine turns out so well. Simply a knockout. Is this your first top down sweater of your own design?
If so, I'm even more impressed. I don't think my first Ingerlise will come out quite that well. We know when I post it. :)
Thank you so much! Follow Myra's method, and you can't fail. I'm sure your cardi will be lovely.
I really love your yarn choice!! Bright, but not too bright with the gray and blue mixed in. It looks really luxurious, but I know the yarn had to be reasonable priced. I think that I may go with the same yarn. Great job!!!
Thank you. Colours are actually reds, pinks and purples. I was worried about blocking the acrylic, but it worked quite well.
Great job, great color choice, great choice of lace patterns. It all works fabulous together.
Those are very kind words. Thank you!
Beautiful sweater! Love the color and pattern. I'll bet you get lots of compliments when you wear it.
Thank you! People do ask where I bought it, so that makes me smile.
I like the design changes and the color. The edging looks really interesting - what did you do? Or is it just a function of the yarn colors?
The edging is a simple garter stitch, 5 rows, with eyelets down the centre, so buttons could be placed anywhere. The yarn made the striping happen.
