Three times - or Kristen TenDyke - a charm

Well, despite my recent whine fest about my difficulties with Diamond Yoke Cardigan, I'm back on track. The very nice and helpful Kristen TenDyke from Classic Elite Yarns came to my rescue and answered all my questions about the edge stitches and errant ribs. I was ready to throw in the towel, but I figured if she could take the time to help me, I could make the time to knit the damn thing over again - for the third time! This picture shows rounds 1, 2, and 3. Hopefully this last version is the beginning of a very beautiful sweater.

And check out my pretty edge stitch - what an improvement. Thanks, Kristen!

As proof that we live in a very small world, I had unknowingly communicated with Kristen earlier in the day about her absolutely gorgeous Renaissance sweater now available for free from This is the perfect sweater for an ample, curvy girl - especially me! And God bless her, Kristen made the largest finished bust size 61 inches. I asked for the pullover's schematic(because of course, I have to upsize it a bit to fit me, dammit). Kristen sent one to; it was up on the site later that day. Renaissance is definitely coming to a queue near me soon. As I always say, so many projects, so little time.

But for now, I give a million thanks to Kristen TenDyke for her knitting wisdom and fantastic designs!
