Prosperous Plum Update
I am completely in love with the Prosperous Plum pattern you have created. It's really enjoyable to knit, and totally addictive. Seriously, I started it on Sunday, and even after ripping back the entire picot hem once, this was where I was as of last night (Woo hoo! No makeup! And a tattoo!):
My only complaint at this point is that I have to wait for you to finish resizing the last part of the pattern. I have considered using the directions for the original size and just going for it, but somehow I think that violates the idea of "test knitting". So, can you maybe speed things up a little? I feel like a junkie waiting for a fix.
Seriously, though, folks - this is a kick-ASS pattern. Once she has it up, I really recommend it for anyone who enjoys textured knitting. It has this awesome balance between the lace and cable sections, which keep things interesting enough that you don't want to put it down, and the stockinette sections, which are small enough to go by quickly without being monotonous.
Oh, and when she says it needs to be done with negative ease? She's not kidding. Mine has 4" of negative ease, and I almost feel like I could have done more (not quite, but almost).
*And yes, I did tell her that this was totally tongue-in-cheek. I'm just in a weird mood this morning.
ETA: CBear - I'm getting 19sts/4" on size 8 Addis.
