I would use nice quality yarn so that it lasts for a long time.

However, I would NOT recommend DB Baby Cashmerino. I just knit a small project with it, and it pills like crazy! It hasn't even been worn yet but looks bad already just from the pilling my hands caused while knitting it.

I would weave in the ends after blocking it, yes.

Well, in general you just use a diagram of the shape to do it. If you work out the gauge, you'll know how many stitches to cast on and where to do the shaping, etc.

If there's no diagram, you just use the measurements given. For example, if it says to knit the body for 10 inches before decreasing, you'll know where to start the decreases on the machine.

Well, without knowing which sweater it is, it's hard to give specifics. Is there any part of it in particular that you want help figuring out, like the shoulder shaping or something?

If the pattern has a diagram of the shape, that's going to be your new best friend.

Here's a website that might help: http://heidisknittingroom.com/ConvertingHKtoMK.htm
27  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: any one know where to get a larger selection of bamboo yarn on: January 17, 2008 01:43:17 AM
I don't know how much you need, but I've heard good things about the bamboo yarns at Bonnie Triola Yarns. They come in a lot of different colors.

Yes, it's possible. ChicKnits has a nice tutorial for this.

How cute! And what a nice way to have a collaborative project, too.

Lucky people! I've never seen one on Freecycle.

Let us know what you get.
