Creamy Hot Lava

Pattern: Hot Lava (size Small) by Jenifer Paulousky
Materials: SWA Laine Chunky yarn (less than 600 yds), US 10.5 circular needles
Techniques: Magic loop all the way baby
Notes: Yarn started thinning at the last stage, so collar region appears more transparent than the rest. Oh well. Made my sleeves 1" longer since I have long-ass arms. Since the last ball of yarn was thinner, made 10 rows for collar instead of the 6 called for in pattern.

Wow! They both came out great! I've been seeing alot of blogs with ravings of lunacy over the clover, so it's nice to see one completed! You did such a great job on both of them!
Wraps are not for me, at least untill I lose my post preggo gut!

I love this too! Girl, you are just on fi-yah ...hee hee. Seriously though, SO impressive that you've only been knitting a few months! And by the way, I think yours is much cuter than the one on the pattern!

What a great job! Both your Lucky and your Hot Lava are bee-yoo-tiful. And thanks for the seaming tips - I am nearing the finish line and will definitely take your advice. Cheers, Dana

I's so jealous of both your sweaters. That magic loop technique looks insane! Your hot lava is so much more impressive than the one on the pattern.

I love that hot lava! I want to make it now, but the thought would never have occurred to me if I hadn't seen yours. It looks way better than the pattern pic! Hmm, I have so many things on the to-do list though, and no money to buy yarn!

Hi Winnie:
Your Lucky Clover looks fab!! I've been there from the beginning but have only done approx. 6 inches on the back. After seeing your results, I will plug along. I haven't been slacking, been doing other projects in between.
I'm tempted to do the I Do wrap but not before I finish lucky.
It's been fun seeing all the comments and progress on the site. this has been my first knit-along.

Wow, Winnie, I have to say, I think your Hot Lava came out gorgeous. I'm so relieved that this pattern comes out nice when other people make it! It was my first pattern ever - come to think of it, it was my first sweater ever! And I agree with the other posters, that your color choice and single-point closure are really stunning.

Nice work, and thanks for the link! :D

I'm not normally a fan of bolero cardigans, but this one is nice. I'm going to have to track down that pattern!

I was looking at your Hot Lava, and was wondering if you had the saggy back that appears on the pattern pics. It looks like there is droopiness where you start knitting the back piece flat. I was wondering how you modified this, or if you didn't and just left the droopage... Thanks!

Hi your hot lava looks fantabulous!! Just wondering tho about the droopy back...did you knit yours with it? or just a straight back? im a fairly new knitter so i have absolutely no idea how to mess around with designs to customize them...

any advice appreciated =)
