Great job!  Love the colour.

I think I'll knit that hat myself.  I haven't done a hat yet.  I do like pom pom hats.

My book should be here anyday now.

Thanks Adrienne.

The yarn colourway is Fawn.

Hi Everyone,

Just wanted to share my finished Little Black Top.  This is my first venture into garmentland and I'm pleased to find its fits.  Yah!  I've been knitting just over a month.

I made a few adjustments.  I downsized it a little to make it XS.  I also used 100% Alpaca.  I still need to crochet the button loop and add a button, but other than that, it's done.  I haven't decided yet if I'll add the belt.

Thanks.

I used 100% Alpaca Peru (http://www.diamondyarn.com/cat.php?yarnID=1042) in Fawn (202).  I bought 7 balls (50g - 100m each), but I think it may only take 5.

It's really warm and soft.  I love working with it.  Highly recommended.

Only downside is that it's handwash only.  Not sure if it can be drycleaned though.

I finished up the back last night.  I really like the yarn I chose.  I'm now on the front and hope to be blocked and seamed after the weekend.  I'm not sure if I'll do the belt yet or not.  I'm still deciding.

Hi Everyone,

I'm working on the back on the LBT and have a quick question.

I have just finished the decreases called on for the armhole shaping.  I now have to work 4 inches even.  Do you measure the 4 inches from the inital 5 st cast off row?  This is my first sweater so I'm a little unsure. 

FYI.  I working this up with 100% Alpaca in Fawn (think camel colour).  I've adapted it (somewhat) to be XS.  I realise now I'm insane to adapt a sweater first time out, but it seems to be going okay.

How is everyone else doing?

I finally finished up my tote.  I'm so happy to have it done with as I had a hard time undering the whole picking up stitches lark.  But after help here (thanks to everyone) and from my LYS I managed to get it together.  I used Lambs Pride Limeade and Sable.  I also made it bigger.


I made 8 RT's for every round.  One before my marker and one after.

Jill,

Thanks for responding.  I actually went down to my LYS today and they showed me everything I was screwing up.  I can't believe how easy it all was.  Sometimes I think you just need to see it ya know. 

Again, thank you.

Oh god, I'm such a numbnut.  I'm still not getting it.  Here's why:

After doing 44 rows, my original stitches are on the left needle.  Do I just flip the needles?

Don't I pick up the long side first before the short side.  You mention:

start with all the stitches of your original base bit and the ones you picked up from the 1st short side on your right needle.

When you say 1st short side, do you mean the bottom?

I'm sorry, but I don't know what you mean by working my way along the cast on edge (though I'm guessing you mean the long sides) from left to right.  Don't I just work down the long side, then the short and then the long side again?

Also, I though you wasn't supposed to actually knit the stitches but just pick them up.

Thank you for all your help.  I really appreciate it.  I'm not dumb I swear!  Grin Roll Eyes
