I have seen so many great items on this blog, and now I want to say hi and join with a first contribution.
I have only recently discovered EZ via knitting blogs when I was planning a garter stitch jacket for my friend´s little boy but didn´t have any idea how to do it. EZ is not widely known in Germany (yet) as there is no translation of her books into german.
I got "Knitting without Tears", and after translating a bit and understanding the importance of Gauge, I came up with this.
Being an architect, I love the fact that it´s modular, and the shaping, of course.
I have changed the base number from seven to nine because of the thinner wool (Schachenmayr Nomotta Rondino) I got and that worked well, but I messed up the decreases on the sleeves a bit ( I just somehow couldn´t count the rows right).
When we put the finished jacket on the child, we found that the colours are just right for a baby. The first thing he did was to smudge smashed carrot on it happily. I think spinach will go nicely, too, as long as it stays with the green stripes.
