Bonita Shirt = FO


It's done, it's finished, I'm mostly happy with it. I washed it, threw it in the dryer, but still I'm not so sure if I should wear it just like this without a top under it. This is just the poser shot for all of you to see, but it the lacy look might cause some distraction to other people. :) Also I think the sleeves are a little puckered and if I did it again, I would have just made them longer and set them in like regular sleeves. With the arms down the look good, but once you move them they remind me a little of those princess dresses with the big puffy arms.

Now I'm off to post this picture at the Interweave KAL, since it's from their 06 Spring issue.

Na der BH drunter ist ja auch noch dezent genug. Schlimmer wäre es, wenn du auch einen Spitzen-BH anhättest ;-)
Mit den Ärmelchen (Ärmel kann man das ja schon nicht mehr nennen) hast du recht. Ich würde mir überlegen, ob ich sie vielleicht ganz abmache. Dann gäbe es ein nettes Tank-T.

LG

Wir konnten heute übrigens auch solche Bilder machen. Bei uns ist es warm wie im Sommer.

Love it, excellent work on the lace pattern. Concerning the little tiny sleeves, well I would have to agree with Petra, you may just take them off and call it a Tank-T, or make new once slightly longer and not as oddly shaped. I would say the pullover is looking nice besides you’re having a nice figure so why not show it off! (hi.hi)

Wow, Angelika, I am so impressed with you. It's beautiful. And yes, you could cause a traffic accident wearing that around like that, such a distraction!!! Hee hee! Just kidding, of course. Nicely done.

I LOVE IT!! It looks absolutely perfect on you and now I'm starting to feel that "itch" again to knit it. I'll have to get that same yarn as you though too since it can be put in the washer AND dryer. Big bonus!

NICELY KNIT! BEAUTIFUL!

Well done! I think it turned out lovely, and it fits you well. I think the embroidery on the top in the magazine turned me off of this pattern, but after seeing yours without the embroidery, I may just have to knit it, too!

Oh aren't you just sooo cute!! I love how yours turned out! I agree with the puffy sleeves and when I wear mine the wind goes through the holes which makes it kind of cold. Definitely a summer sweater. Great job! Now where's your head?? :-)

Well done! It looks quite lovely. Maybe I'll change my mind again and make it ... but not till next year ;-)

Bonita looks fab on you! I can't believe how quickly you knit it up!

I've been busy but I'm back from my trip, I'll have to give you a call tomorrow.

It is a lovely sweater and you look beautiful in it! I should really make myself a summer sweater also.

She's a gorgeous top! The puffed sleeves are totally cute - didn't you know that they're "in" these days???

p.s. I love the photo - with suburbia in the background. It really makes me miss home...
