A three-day FO! And one of my favourites to date!

Pattern: by glampyre
Yarn: Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Worsted, "vera", 2 skeins
Needles: Denise US9
Started: August 5, 2005
Finished: August 7, 2005

I had some fun with a self-timer photoshoot.

Next small sweaterish thing will be Elspeth, which I’m going to focus on for the next little while.

Have I mentioned that I’m on a yarn fast for the month of August? I’m doing well so far, and I think I can actually do it! Main motivation is the Kitchener-Waterloo knitter’s fair in September, so I’m gonna save up my money from this month to spend there! Excellent.

    Laura it looks fantastic. Great job. I can’t wait to see it in person. And I’m also on a yarn fast….maybe we should have a support group!

    It’s beautiful! You are such an inspiration (and I think you can knit faster than I can talk!). Love checking your blog – but it sure does make me feel slow. Happy Knitting.

    I can’t believe how fast you kniw! Your minisweater is way cuter than mine…I used the wrong yarn, and I didn’t dig the puffy sleeves. Yours looks great!

    Beautiful! I’ve always been fond of wrap sweaters, and you did an excellent job.

    Looks fantastic! I wish I could knit as quickly as you. :-)

    Looks fantastic. You completely amaze me how fast you knit. This must be a stupid question, but how did you get the sleeves NOT to be puffy like the original design?

    Simply gorgeous! Looks great on you! And so quick, too! I love all those self-timer shots, especially the fourth one down where you’re puckering your lips – so Rowan-esque!

    I love how you’ve turned this into a wrap. It’s beautiful and I’m always amazed at how fast you knit.

    I love how you’ve modified it into a wrap! I’m close to finishing the same pattern (minus your adaptation) and you’ve really inspired me to get that bad boy finished, stat. Cute cute!

    Hot stuff!

    Bravo, Laura.

    Love the long ties and the fashion-y photos.

    No buttons to worry about.

    Great job on the minisweater! I do have a question on how you modified it into a wrap sweater? I am very interested in making this minisweater and like your modifications. Thanks!

    So, I know this was posted ages and ages ago, but I’m just now starting my own minisweater, and as Lisa wanted to know, I was curious how you made the sleeves ‘un-puffed’, and if there were any other modifications you made to the pattern aside from adding the tie. Thanks in advance for any info!

    Oh, and of course, I love the way yours turned out! Seeing pics of it was what inspired me to knit my own :)

  24. […] I realized on Thursday that the post office is closed tomorrow due to a holiday so I had to finish my niece’s sweater quickly and had to mail it without blocking it first. I’m not so thrilled with it and I think it might be too small so I sent her other gifts just in case the sweater doesn’t work. I have another niece with a birthday next month so I quickly started that sweater so that I won’t be rushing to the post office without blocking it first. I’m knitting Glampyre’s mini-sweater without the puffy sleeves and instead of a button maybe with ties like this one for the closure.I really like this particular Manos colorway and I have to tell myself that I shouldn’t be selfish and keep this for myself. I have the really pretty Malabrigo that Susan gave me that I could turn into this for myself so I have to resist. Sometimes Manos for me is like Koigu–I love the progression of colors and I cannot wait to see what color the next stitch will be. […]

  25. […] The pattern is based on Stefanie Japel’s Mini-Sweater Pattern. I need to thank Sara G for pointing out how cute this would be as a wrap sweater. I think she found it on the blog of Laura, aka Cosmicpluto. And anyhow, here it is. I’ve written up some notes for the changes I made, and have them available at the store. […]
