I'm hot blooded, check it and see I got a fever of a hundred and three...

... Come on baby, do you do more than dance?

Let's lighten the load over here.

Another finished knit.

Finished back in February, right before I started the Olympics. The pattern is a free pattern from Blue Alverez Designs, it is called - Hot Lava. Which, every time I think of the name, I think of the Foreigner song quoted in the title and at the start of the post. So funny.

I used Classic Elite Montera. Another score from our Christmas trip to the Warehouse. It was fun yarn. Definitely a WOOL wool.

Not sure what sized needles I used, I can't remember.

I love this sweater. It was an easy knit. It fits great. I actually prefer to wear it upside down from the intended orientation. I like the way fabric lies. It's sassy while still being functional.

And, most importantly. It deals with the rack well.


I just found another pattern from Blue Alverez that I think I'll put on my list...Licorice Whip.

wow - terrific patterns. I'd never encountered Blue Alverez before, but I think I have a few more things to add to the "gotta knit" list!

very nice...i've admired that pattern before, but let's just say it's not the best look for fatty mc patties.

That came out great - I love how it's a bit longer in back (though that may just be how you are wearing it!)

Thanks for the licorice twist pattern link! It is beautiful! I Must make it!!!!

Wow, it looks so much better on you than on the pattern model. Maybe it's the upside-down thing but I love it!

Lava looks fabulous on you! Blogger wouldn't let me comment yesterday. Your post was right on. So many of us have our intuition sapped (or slapped) out of us at a young age. We need to teach the young grrls to go with it, understand what's in their hearts and minds is real.

Looks great! Right about the rack. I think Hot Licorice is also going to complement the parts...more accent on the waist with that one.
