No longer stashed...

Ok, so let's review. This is the yummy boucle that I bought from a very exotic store in Englewood, NJ that I talked about previously (sorry I can't link you back to that post because I haven't figured out how to do that yet). I've finally gotten them OTN (on the needles) but take caution you newbie knitters - these are stockinette stitches featured but there is no stitch definition. Can be good or bad - good if you are prone to mistakes so no one will really see it, and bad if you have managed to stray away from the pattern and you can't see how or where and you have to frog (there's that word again and, remember, it is practically impossible to frog boucle, unless you are Heidi of course)!





Now, for the kicker, here's the pattern -

The good news is that it is going very fast, that is if I don't screw up somehow. I'm already done half of the back (I have to do 24"), then on to the front which should go even faster because I only have to do 31 stitches. I'll reserve the shaping part for when I go back to the pattern maker - Ms. Zen Goddess Pattern Genius - the proprietress of the store who does these amazing patterns from her head after she has measured you and forced you to sit and do a gauge swatch. Wish me luck.

is it silk? (maybe i missed that earlier) it has such a beautiful sheen.

is that sheet in the picture the whole pattern? i'm curious about the sleeves and the neckline. good luck with it!
