1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: post Jean Moss FOs here. I've finished Fortuny on: May 17, 2007 02:18:02 PM
Jaeger Trinity, huh? I have 8 balls of that particular yarn in the stash, and I don't know what on earth to do with it.   Cheesy

Sorry to hijack - I bought about 12 or 13 balls of this on sale and have used about 4 and a bit to make the side tie vest from Vogue knitting, (spring/summer 06).

I swatched and used size 7 & 8 Denises.

It's turned out very nice. Smiley Maybe I'll remember to take a pic this time - usually I forget!

To the OP: I agree, the yardage is fantastic with this yarn and the sweater your friend made is beautiful - excellent job! Cheesy

If only that one stitch was knit in a different yarn, you wouldn't get the ladders that form when the stitch is dropped. You have a a sort of open space, but not a wide one.

I kinda had an idea that that would be the case but I thought I would throw it out there anyway.

I was just wondering, if you knitted the stitch to be dropped with a length of mercerized cotton - just that one stitch - wouldn't it then be easier to pull out and drop the stitches?

If that worked then it would be handy for claps worked in textured yarns.

I dunno, it just came to me while reading this thread. I did start on a clap last year but it bored the pants off me - maybe I'll try it again sometime...

The top of the sleeves are usually put on holders so that they can be worked on once the body of the sweater is done.

This means less seaming later on and makes it faster to produce a finished article.

Thought as much - it's two-colour double shaker knitting. Had to check in the 'Big Book of Knitting' by Katharina Buss but, yep, that's it.

Try here, or here, or here for starters.

I'm paying around 3.75 for a set of Addi Turbos. In the US the prices were anywhere between around $13-25.

You wouldn't want to buy Addis from the US as the price over there for them is a rip-off. I can't believe how much cheaper they are here in the UK.

Do you want to buy specifically from continental Europe or would the UK do?
