« De-Perfecting the Yarn | Main | Strike One »

August 15, 2005



I'm on my way to my LYS to pick up Jamaica yarn for the tank...the coat is next on the list! And girlfriends boot, now those are cute!...Where can I get my "girlfriend" a pair of those?


I love the swing coat. I have a top down swing coat pattern from Cabin Fever that I'm going to make myself.


Now why is it I'm always pining after children's clothes to wear myself? Let's leave that bit of psychological ephemera by the roadside and say if you create an adult-sized version of this pattern, you've got another buyer here. I could almost squeeze into the upper end of the kiddies' version, but I think 32 is as low as I should go. Beautiful design - I'd love to see Miss Girl do a swirl. It's rather Ginger Rogers.


Boots? Target!


PS. Actually, with those smashing pink boots, it';s more Emma Peel than Ginger Rogers.


Are those really target boots?...geez their fashions are getting cuter by the moment!

Knit Chick

That came out great. You are such the pattern enabler. I have some mini-Girlfriends in mind for this project & may have to break down and the get pattern... soon. They'll be the perfect for the smallest size in a few months.


Wendy it's GORGEOUS! She looks great in it!, And I agree, her boots rock!
Quite a little fashionista your creating, better teach that kid to knit!


Terrific pattern wendy! I know we should be careful of leaning models in the sunset, but patterns only seen from the back seem the same too. Do you think we could get a shot of her from the front?

Looks great. My fingers are itching to get my niece one... mwahhaha


Laurence, on an earlier post, I think August 10th, there is a clear front shot...

Girlfriend wasn't cooperating on the photo-shoot day and I wasn't able to get a decent full frontal!


Oh, and there's another, more revealing shot in the winner's photo album, too...


Girlfriend is so beautiful in her swing coat - I'm glad to see her closer to it than in earlier photos. Forget the adult version - I agree that it would be less-than-fulfilling.


Cute, although I'd love to see a picture of the front of the sweater! ;)


Could u post the front view? This little number is SOOO adorable! I want to knit one for my niece :)


I love the sweater and just finished one for my own little girlfriend: http://crazyfiberlady.typepad.com/photos/2004/gfss1f.html

Excellent job on the pattern.


I want to make one for myself! Do you have a women's size medium pattern for the girlfriend swing coat?

Cindy Moore

I like the back of this coat, but what does the front look like?

Lissa Mitchell

Such a cute pattern - does it come in big girl sizes too? I'm addicted to knitting patterns that are done all in one piece...




Since i'm a beyond awful mathematician..how many stitches would yu add for an adult size?????????????

Best Pheromones, Tips On Flirting

So don't get down on your pheromones, they don't hate you. Your pheromones are actually loving you right now! If it was up to your lonely- mones, you'd be waking up in scummy boy bed, bong water spilled on the sheets, dog licking your face and a dirty spit- ape hugging you like a carnival prize. Your pheromones are the party police, although totally down for a party, they possess the wherewithal to make sure it's the right party. Have faith in your chemistry, without it we'd be humping donuts and cucumbers...


Hi Wendy,

Which yarn did you use for the Girlfriend's Swing Coat above-it is adorable!


professional advice on relationships

In reality, there are a few relationships that are unworthy of saving. If you and your ex spent more time fighting than you did doing something good and fun, then perhaps you should consider moving on. f they were physically or verbally abusive, it probably wasn't a healthy relationship. If they were mentally unstable, you probably are better off without them. If the relationship overall was a good one, and they weren't abusive, and they were of sound mind, the following should help you and your ex get back together.
