1  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Re: First Sweater Support Group on: January 17, 2005 10:23:17 AM
JennG, what a beautiful sweater! Where did you find it?
My sweater is going on, however, is completely different from my original post. I'm doing it from the bottom up, in the round. I've made a ten row seed stitch border and now am doing stocking stitch. I'm trying to figure out what I'm going to do when I have it knit up to the arm pits - I figure that I'm going to knit it onto two sets of needles (one for front, one for back) and increase and decrease that way, then attach the sleeves (done in a different colour). Does anyone have any suggestions?

Hi Everyone,
I'm a semi-new knitter and I'm beginning my first sweater. I'm chickening out a little and planning to do it in top-down as opposed to making it in many parts. I bought the wool today - Patons Canadiana in Bright Royal and Rainbow Varg (body and sleeves respectively) and I'm planning to put a Cardinal octopus on the front (it's for my eight month old).
Due to the eight month old, I may be a while making this (it's one of several projects) but I'm excited. I'm using http://www.woolworks.org/patterns/raglan.html for my pattern. I have a pattern for what I want in several pieces, so I'm hoping that this turns out at least a little similar!!
I'm thrilled to find this knit-a-long!
3  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Re: Letter Have It bags on: January 02, 2005 05:41:43 PM
so i am making some of these bags for friends and i have a question concerning the center panel. in the book it says to work in garter stitch for 38.5 inches and then you are knitting for another eighteen inches and thats going to be freaking long. i was wondering if anyone has finished one yet and if this is going to work out becasue in my mind its going to be too long. i could just not be seeing the larger picture here.

I've posted in the livejournal knitting forum, as well as 'knit happens' about this. I had the same problem - the middle was way to long for this bag for me as well. I'm redoing the middle to be the right length and with the join at the bottom of the purse.
And yes, it is a felted purse, but I would suspect that everything felts proportiionally, meaning that if it is to big right now, as it all felts it will still be big.

Glad to see someone else has the same problem!!!

I agree Slone - Newfoundland (my province as well!) wasn't included. And we do have a LYS in the capital and others throughout the province. And I have to admit, I'd been hoping to find a listing for a local SnB.
Next book perhaps..... Smiley
