821  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: Bad Penny from Knitty on: August 06, 2005 05:04:32 PM
Yours looks GREAT!

I've just started the Bad Penny pattern, but I'm doing it in 100% cotton - which is all the better for knitting in the summer heat, but I really don't know how it is going to last. Will it sag with washing - lose it's shape/drape? (I'm not sure of the correct terminology.)

So I haven't gotten to the eyelet part yet - sorry thystle.  And I've been thinking about just ribbing it too. Makes it less "fussy".

I've been totally put off balance by not starting at the collar, or maybe it's because of working from the top-down. (I've never knit a sweater/top like that.)

But I think I'm going to rip out the three or four inches I've done - in order to pay more attention to the increases - the increases for the sleeves.
When I started, I didn't think it would show if I'd started an increase row and finished it on a plain knit row. And I'm sure I've done that a time or two - tine yo holes on my knitting aren't as evenly spaced as yours, bigang.

And it's not just a matter of "showing" - I've suddenly realized just now that it is going to make one armhole larger/smaller than the other one.

Better to start over now, with only a few inches to rip, than to try to count the stitches in the front, back and the sides when I get further along (and then attempt to finagle the pattern) - when there are hundreds and hundreds of stitches. (And end up with a top that would fit a hunchback.)

Thanks for the encouragement to rip!

Very pretty - especially if worn with a dark autumn/winter jacket/coat.

Where did you get the pattern from? I haven't seen it anywhere else.

Please can I get a copy of this pattern too? I seem to have an abundance of yarn that needs to be knit up.  (So I can acquire some more?)

My e-address is:

Many thanks,

I finally got to see the Wavy Gravy picture, and I'm glad I persisted.
It's gorgeous!

Would love it you could post the pattern you used. After all, you have plenty of "spare time" according to your blog. hehe

A "SIMPLE" Autumn Shawl?

No, my dear, you have a COMPLEX autumn shawl!
The contrast between the front (tail pieces) and the back is awesome!

And I don't think I've ever seen a pattern like that - where ever did you get the pattern?
I'd be nervous trying it out myself, as much as I'd like to. It is so beautiful!

Happy knitting, Magenta. And Happy camping, Mom.

What a great idea - cool lace for a head scarf/band during the hot days!

Looking at your picture of it blocking, I was reminded of a knitted bookmark.
I always look longingly at patterns for them, but I detest the thought of actually using a *knitted* bookmark.  (Because it would be too thick and would damage the book.)

Thank you for giving me the idea of knitting a lace bookmark for my head!

I like the gauntlets but I looove the sweater!

I'd ask you to gift me the sweater, but I only have two of the three characteristics you mention - I am very very wide, with long arms, but NOT flat-chested - so unfortunately it wouldn't fit.

Great work! I've not been brave enough to try a pattern generator yet.

Barbarella:

Why not try a second hand store --- look for a sweater or a knitted top and unravel it?

Am not a huge fan of Stevie Ray Vaughan so I have no idea what the significance of the leather hat band is, but ... this IS gorgeous!

And when I saw it I immediately thought of using a cord instead of leather. Not because of any offence but rather because I have cord on hand and no leather strips.

Thank you. Knitty's loss is our gain.

Verrrry cute! They are good to go for all year round.

Don't you just hate it when your feet get cold? ... when the temp is SUPPOSED to be warm. I end up shivering all over.

Great job!
