Well, it looks like we'll have another "double knit along" this time with the two patterns who received the highest number of votes (Wicked and Eiffel). Knit either or both! Congratulations to the pattern designers for both of the fantastic patterns! I know that Sarah and Rachel check this board frequently and I'll contact Lana to see if she will be available for pattern support here as well. (Designers, please feel free to post and introduce yourselves to the rest of the ladies including how you can be reached for pattern support.)
There have been a couple of comments regarding bra straps showing with these (and other) sweaters so I'd like to throw my 2 cents in here, if I may. Like most of you, I despise seeing and showing bra straps, so if and when I wear something that I fear might expose mine, I choose a camisole with a pretty lacey strap to go over my bra straps. If you don't own a camisole such as this, they're everywhere and I highly recommend you invest in one especially since the layered look is so big these days. They're usually not expensive and frequently come in many colors. Some do and some don't cover the bra straps well, so try a few on before you buy one. I own about 5 white ones (as well as many other colors) and wear them often. The lacier you can find the straps, the more obvious it will be that this is NOT your bra strap showing. Also, the Zephyr gals have posted that a pic of Wicked can be found on their site (being modeled by a live person) and say that the sweater comes up higher on the shoulders than it appears to on the mannequin. With Eiffel, due to the laciness of the bodice, it's obvious that a camisole is being worn with it, so this should help with the bra strap issue as well. Perhaps we could post some links here on the SKC to some nice lace-strapped camisoles for those who are interested in adding some to their wardrobe. I bought most of mine from Abercrombie and Hollister, but I don't know if they have the exact same style any more. The ones I found have straps that are about 1.5 inches wide and cover my straps very well.
We will begin this knit along January 7th, so start gathering your supplies soon. We'll end the knit along at the end of February.
I'd like to wish everybody a wonderful holiday season. Whatever you celebrate (and even if you celebrate nothing at all), may this season bring you all joy, peace, and LOTS and LOTS of yarn :-)
