End in sight

I thought it was time to share my progress on the dress I have been knitting over the last few weeks.  If you remember, it is this one


this was my progress on 19th Oct
The back and sleeves are completed, and I am well on my way up the front

I'm not too happy about some of my front cables (the back ones lay beautifully), but I'm hoping once it is finished they will lay better, it maybe that they have got a bit scrunched up with handling.  I was knitting last night and realised I had done one completely wrong and had to pull back 6 rows, not fun when you are tired but I knew I couldn't go to bed until it was sorted.

I have about 6cm of cabling left to do, then I am on to the textured top as per the back, with the scoop neck shaping.  I am hoping to get this finished by the end of the week so that I can start on the cot blanket


  1. That has been coming along FAST. Beautiful Sue.

  2. Wow, I'm loving the tweed in this yarn. It's looking fab. If you block the front, you will certainly get those cables to behave. That type of cable is often lumpy dumpy while knitting. Good luck!

  3. I can't believe how much of the dress is knit! It looks beautiful, and I'm sure the front cables will settle down once it's off the needles.

  4. This is 100.1% gorgeous. Hopefully the cables will sit better with you after the first wash-block, from this perspective they look absolutely stunning. Can't wait to see it finished!

  5. I love your project, the colour, pattern, just everything!
    I look forward to the finished object :)

  6. Oh Wow! That is turning out great!

  7. It looks amazing, definitely given me the kick I need to tell me that I need to get on and knit a dress if they come out this beauitfully!

  8. Man, you are ambitious! It is lovely.

  9. oh wow that is gorgeous, the yarn, the pattern, everything!

  10. Beautiful, can't wait to see it modeled!
