Welcome, Knitty readers!


Howdy to everyone who clicked over here from the just-now-live Spring issue of Knitty! That was awfully nice of you. And thanks to the truly stunning number of you who have already queued or faved the pattern on Ravelry, or written with kind words or comments on the Decimal sweater. Wow. I'm overwhelmed.

This sweater is just darling! Did you do your photo shoot in front of the MFA in Houston? You must have - I very recently moved away, but I'd recognize those swingy strands any day! Love it!

I love your design and I can't wait to knit it! FABULOSO! From another knitting librarian (who is much more used to LC than Dewey).

oh doh. I spend most of my life in the M class. I get it.

I like the sweater and I like the skirt too! Could I ask who the designer of the skirt is?

My very talented friend Stephanie Gage took these photos in front of the Blanton Museum of Art on the UT campus. The sculpture's called Penetrable, by Jesús Rafael Soto, and he did have a big show at the MFA in Houston in 2004!

The skirt is from H&M, last spring...

Gorgeous sweater! I have balked at knitting sweaters but this just might be the one.

Maryse said...

Congratulations! I just saw your pattern on Knitty and it is absolutely gorgeous! You ought to be proud!!!

What a gorgeous design, and I love that you make it so it could be "biggened" :D I'm sure that more than one big girl will be thrilled. I know I am!

This is such a gorgeous design! I love the lace around the hem especially and have already added it to my queue - can't wait to get started!

This is a beautiful design. Thank you for all the hard work which I am sure must have gone into it. I also appreciate the larger sizes and the lovely lace in the design and can't wait to start this one.

My favourite pattern from the spring Knitty by far is the decimal cardigan. I usually find the spring knitty a bit dodgy but this one is great, and your decimal really contributes significantly to that. Great pattern, thank you.

My interest was piqued in which is the other lace sweater, the complicated mathematical one which refused to be re-sized.

I'm going to enjoy reading all your back posts finding out that story...

I'm very interested in what the yellow stuff in the background of your picture is. It looks like pasta!

This sweater is gorgeous - absolutely beautifully executed design. Can't wait to check out your other patterns. Thank you

The sweater is gorgeous! I think I'm going to have to put it on the list of things to knit. I don't have a lot of nice feminine tops that I'd still be able to wear to work too.

I'm so excited about this sweater. Finally a plus size sweater that doesn't look like a man's sweater!! Love it. Sidenote: your plus size model has the most lovely hair, too! Thanks for a wonderful pattern. This is on my list for knitting very soon!

Adorable! I also love the art direction on that shot with the cool yellow waterfall. Very cool.

This is such a gorgeous cardigan. Love that you showed it in different sizes -- I'm fairly small, but I'm busty, and it's a challenge to find patterns that take that into account. Can't wait to make it!

I've completed my version of Decimal. Love it! Love it! Love it! Oh, and I LOVE it!!!!!

Thank you for sharing your creativity and providing a pattern that suits ample knitters as well as the thin ones.

I'll be making this again and again.
