1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Phildar Patterns on: June 29, 2004 09:00:38 AM
I have this magazine too, and I want to make so many of the patterns! I would say I've doggeared about half the pages...

I thinking of making that sweater too - and because I'm cheap, I was thinking of baby yarn. I like the pink color, and I know I can get some baby yarn at Micheals in that same texture.

my sweater has gorilla arms too...

I think the problem is the mohair, it seems to grow so much! I also made my neckline bigger, because I'd heard the neckline was too small or whatever...yeah, the thing was so big it was falling off my shoulders. I went back, and instead of doing a row of single crochet, I picked up the cast off stitches, etc (not with extra yarn, the stitches are so big I just picked them up) with 10.5s (I knit the sweater on 13s) and cast off again. The neckline is now ok. However, the rest of the sweater still has problems.  It just doesn't look good on me. I don't know if its because of my big boobs or what...but I have a feeling I'll be frogging the whole damn thing - or what I can, as mohair is so hard to frog!

So, question is now...what to do with 1000 yards of reddish-pinkish-white mohair?

I actually made myself a needle roll last summer (without a pattern), to match a big bag and a little accessories case (also made without patterns) I made for my knitting stuff.  I don't have pictures now, but when I get back to my comp, I can post them.

For my needle case, I had two rows of little pockets for needles and on the bottom row, the pockets were twice the size of the ones on the top row. That way, my circs fit in quite nicely!
