Lace Wrap & Inside Zipper Pant Photo
I finished the Vogue Knitting Lace Wrap #24 from the 2005 Holiday edition. I think it turned out pretty well, and it's lovely and warm to wear. The colors are not nearly so clashing as you might suspect from the photos. It's longer than I think it really needs to be, and it isn't even as long as they say to make it. There are a few corrections to the pattern which are outlined on the Vogue Knitting website. I think it will be nice to wear over jackets. I used a cable needle for a shawl pin, and with a few stitches on the curve, it doesn't show or shine at all when it's holding the Wrap. You can see Catso here guarding it while I took the photo. It was a challenge to get the photo taken before he made another swipe at the shawl pin. Those feet are just very handy. It was fun to knit, and I'm almost sorry to be done with it, although I'm anxious to get started on a new project. There will be gauge swatches tonight if I have time!
I also took a photo of the inside of the latest side-zip Hollywood-waist pants showing the hook & eye, as requested. The inside is not as gorgeous as I could wish. I wasn't really planning it to be seen, and the lining has a "unique" application, which actually works well. Anyway, here is the inside photo. You can see a larger version at myPants Gallery at Pbase. I have the hems re-pinned and all ready to sew, but won't get to it tonight.
