Where do I put my head?

If you have ever knit something that starts as a rectangle, gets folded in half and seamed up then picked up and knit in the round you know what I am talking about.

The Easy Ruffle Coat, once finally off needles, rather resembled a bag with legs.  My only excuse is it was late at night and I was tired, so a little bit "fitting impaired".


here is the beauty...

and OH MY, it is waaaaayyyy better than I expected!

Sorry for the pitiful lighting/exposure and all that technical nonsense...

The first picture shows a more accurate representation of the color...

After twisting some knobs on the top of the camera (um, yep I'm a button pusher/knob twister with no clue what I'm doing), the next two exposures resulted and I rather like them as you can see a bit more of the yarn/textural/color changes.

Would have to say that in the final product, the only complaint I have was totally my fault...yarn choice.  I LOVE Feza, don't get me wrong, but I all the knots where the yarn is joined.  Would I do it again...Oh yeah! in a heartbeat!

While my photographic exposure may leave something to be desired, the people at Tami's are exposing some awesome FO's.  Go check them out, you know you want to.


  1. It's gorgeous! Congrats on finishing :)

  2. I TOLD you it'd be worth it when it was all done! And I was right -- it's gorgeous! You did a fantastic job. Enjoy!

  3. Wow, it's just fantastic, Dina! Nicely done!

  4. I think my jaw actually dropped when I scrolled down enough to get to your first photo. This is gorgeous. The colours! The drape! The openness of the knit! I could stare at this thing all day.

  5. Holy smokes, that's beautiful! you should be so proud of yourself.

  6. Love it, love it, love it! Worth every bit of aggravation along the way. The color is perfect & it looks perfectly drapey. Very nice work.

  7. That is so lovely. Now I need to go see if I can add it to my 'to knit' list
