This is great! I have a ton of Red Heart Supersaver in my stash so I might be visiting the craft store with bits in hand to find out if I have the right colors on hand. Thanks for the link.

Those are way cute! They would go perfect with http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=197572.0, once I get around to making that too. Lovely!

It also didn't help I had 19 st and 25 rows per 4" and the pattern calls for 16/20. I know I knit tight but I wasn't taking the seaming into account when measuring it haphazardly on myself while knitting. Oops!

I have some very sad news. I just finished the seaming only to find many problems. The back, which I knew was too short, is also not wide enough and the arms are ridiculously small from cuff to shoulder. I made the fronts wider to compensate for my body shape but they meet at the back leaving no room for my head.

So in short, I finished it in 6 months. It was my first sweater, first non-scarf and -hat pattern, and first attempt at seaming. I shall keep it for some day when I need a gift for someone much smaller and for memories sake.

I'll try and have pictures soon but right now I'm just too sad. Happy it's finished, sad I can't wear it (not that I'd want to in this weather).

Wow, that stained glass effect looks great! If I ever get some variegated I don't know what to do with, or don't like how the cabled scarf comes out (I have a feeling it'll be too short!) I'll definitely look this up again. Thanks guys!

Wow, it turned out marvelous! The color is stunning, and so very Anne. It fits you very well too.

After poking around a bit on Ravelry, I stumbled on http://www.straw.com/cpy/patterns/scarves/kaya-cabled-scarf.html and thought it couldn't hurt to cast on. If I hated it, I could always frog it again. So after a few hours, I got this:


I can't say I love the results so far, but I hate it a lot less than I have. The suggestions have been great, but I think this one is staying as a cabled scarf until further notice. Maybe I'll be able to gift it to someone I don't really care for come Christmas because I know it'll be that long before I finish it.

Thanks guys!
8  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Horrible Rainbow Yarn...Help! on: June 26, 2008 02:14:39 PM
I recently rediscovered a horrible secret hiding under my bed. It was a half-knit seed stitch hat knit flat in needles I needed. Besides that, it's a horrible, revolting rainbow of technicolors.

Yes, I am the ashamed owner of almost a skein of Red Heart Supersaver in Bikini. Now, half my stash is Red Heart which I'm trying to eat up, that's not the shame. However, even pooling as the disgraceful pictures below show just how atrocious this colorway is.



What in the world can I do with this? It's mid-frog, no worries there, but I'm at a real loss as to a good pattern (I'd settle for half-decent) to use this up on. No one I closely know is pregnant nor has a toddler so baby clothes are out of the question. Help!

Love the fringes! They make them look very professional, and the basketweave is awesome too. Great job!

And I third the add to queue. I have to finish two sweaters before I will let myself cast on for this though. That, and I have to find enough yarn in my stash for it. I might end up striping it or making it two-tone to bust more stash. I'm concerned that it would be a bit much for this lovely lace pattern though.
