I'm so fond of the Bubble Pullover

I finished the Bubble Pullover as my second item from Knitting Nature (the third item, the Turbulence U-neck Pullover, is already on the needles). It is just so nice to wear and fashionable as well. I made it less baggy than in the book, and I think that suits me better. As I have mentioned before, I reversed the decreases like Knot Another Hat did in order to use this as a design feature. I made the largest size but with a much smaller gauge. The sweater came out as a size small. The buttons are ladybirds. You can see a closeup and more details on my blog.
Yarn: 1 strand kidmohair, 1 strand 100% wool from Henrichsens Uldspinderi
Needles: 4.0 mm and 4.5 mm
Size: Large, but turned out small due to the smaller gauge (as planned).

Honeycomb stitch pattern

I just wanted to show you how I adapted the stitch pattern of the Honeycomb Henley in this vest. Sorry for the bad photos. You can read more on my blog, if you like.

Ram's Horn Jacket - Norah Gaughan

Ram's Horn Jacket is done. I've detailed everything on my blog, which is quite a lot, so not repeating here.

Thanks to the people who contacted me when I requested assistance with this pattern.

Ram's Horn Jacket - Norah Gaughan

Hi everyone …. I’m experiencing problems with the collar instructions and seeking assistance from anyone who has completed this jacket.

I’ve completed the body of the garment, which was a very easy knit. Have also blocked and sewn together, but the collar instructions have me totally confused.

Is there anyone on the Knit-Along who is currently knitting or has knitted this pattern? A friend is also experiencing problems with the collar instructions, so I know there is a real problem deciphering details.

I have read the errata attached to this Knit-Along, as well I have emailed Norah Gaughan at Berroco, where one of the staff replied directing me to another
errata page and the publisher for assistance. I have not contacted the publisher, but hoping someone here will be able to assist.

I LOVE this book!

This pattern was a tiny bit tricky for a somewhat beginner, but so worth it.
I'm so in love with this yarn's color...

This is the second one of these I've knitted- this is the first:

I didn't like my yarn choice for the first one, so I did the second, but now I can't decide which one I like better...
I added a crocheted edge to both of them because they turned out a bit too short for me.
