1  Re: Mr Greenjeans along anyone? in Knitalongs by Cynder on: October 14, 2007 05:20:08 PM
99% Finished!

I still have to weave in the ends and sew on the button.
 I really don't like how the colorway knitted up, but after doing research, dying a whole garmet isn't a good idea, so I'm thinking this will go to someone I know who likes loud patterns for the holidays.

I'm almost finished Grin  All I have left is to finish the second sleeve, add another repeat to the bottom (thought I might run out of yarn) and do the ribbed collar.

I would be done, but needed to whip up a quick sweater for my son's birthday, which is only taking me 8 (maybe 9) days.

OK, I cast on Friday, making the size L, and have already gotten past the point where you separate the sleeves, and should start on the rib/cable pattern later this week! Grin

I'm not 100% loving how the yarn colorway is knitting up, and I have a feeling that this sweater might have a date with a batch of grape kool-aid after it is finished.

I have been obsessed with this pattern ever since the new Knitty came out.


I placed my first Webs order on Sunday, and received the yarn lastnight, Ella Ray classic wool, in a Green/Pink/Grey colorway (and forgot to take a photo of the yarn).

I just need to finish one quick shawl thats on the needles, and I plan to swatch and CO this weekend!

Anyone want to join?

ETA:  Here is the yarn I'm using

I finished knitting mine this weekend!

I still need to finish sewing some seams down, and blocking it, but I have some pics.

Please pardon the baby belly in the picture  Grin

And there are a few more pics on the blog. 

ETA www.cynderjenn.blogspot.com Hm, I thought it was on the profile, but just remembered this was all the photos.  Silly pregnancy brain.

Photo time  Grin

I finished crocheting the steeks after work today, and cut them while my 2 year old kept trying to take the scissors.

So far the neck looks like I envisioned.  Its a scoop neck (I think) and hits me at about the right spot.

Now I just need to get a pair of size 1 circ needles so I can finish knitting the trim.

In the mean time, sleeve island is calling.

And I stole DH's cable.

You can kind of see my graph with my neckline mods in the background,

My goal is to get the body finished before the end of the month.

I did have to teach myself Magic Loop after I started the steak since I only have one size 3 needle, and had way too many stitches to switch to DPN's.  I can't believe I haven't tired magic loop before.

8  The Cap Shawl from Victorian Lace Today in Knitting: Completed Projects by Cynder on: May 01, 2007 04:14:49 PM
Pattern: The Cap Shawl from Victorian Lace Today

Yarn: Misti Alpaca Lace, three balls
Needles: Knit Picks Options size 4, the two standard size cords that came with the pack, plus 4 size 4 Susan Bates DPN's.
Size: Blocked out to 5 feet, which is smaller than the one in the book, but since I downsized both the yarn and needles, I'm happy with the size.
Time: A little over 7 weeks.
What I learned: Circular cast on and circular shawl construction. I loved working on this shawl, since it was (mostly) comprised of knit stitches. There were a few rows of purl stitches on the outer edge that drove me crazy, and I did leave one row off completely.
Pinning it out was less of a hassle than I expected it to be. One of my tape measures had a hole at the start that I was able to pin in the center and I used that to get all my points to the same length.

There are more pictures available on my blog.

Just a quick progress pic.

I'm on the third repeat of the body chart, and this is taking forever! 

How is everyone else doing?

Just a quick progress shot:

I'm about half way done with the first chart repeat.  This is going to take me a long time.
