21  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Re: Pinup Queen?? on: September 15, 2004 09:26:19 AM
Hey jpants, I think you and I are inadvertantly doing a knit along on this sweater-- I am on the sleeves too.
What I am doing is when I have to increase on a purl stitch (it varies depending on what row you are on, somtimes it's a knit stitch, and then you're stoked) I purl into it, then leaving the orig st on the LH needle, I move the yb and knit into the same st. That gives me the inc and then on the next row, I just look ahead and do whatever st I need to do into that inc to maintain the rib. What you have to keep in mind in maintaining the rib is that every other inc will leave you with a single st on each end of the row. Do this one opposite of the last rib on that row. I hope this makes sense...
I think the sleeves are going to take me a little bit longer on this sweater. with the baby and all, I'm only really getting to knit for about a half hour every evening while she watches her nightly baby einstein video before bed. At least I get that much time, right???  Smiley

Here it is! *Finally* a picture of my finished hoodie! (Only 2.5 months or so late, but hey, it's just getting cold enough here for sweaters!)

It's a little itchier than I had hoped, but it's very warm and I love the colors! (I hate this pic otherwise. But at least the sweater looks decent, right?)

LAME! I'm sorry!
I think you should finish the sweater for a sense of accomplishment then either sell it on ebay, or give it as a holiday gift for a male friend/brother/acquaintance. Either way, you won't have it on your hands anymore, and will either make money or save money. And you can say you knitted a whole sweater. Smiley
Good luck, and I'm sure you'll be fine.  Grin

You can also try asking about Inter-Library loans. Not all libraries in my area stock every book, and I don't live near the Main one, but I can ask the librarian and often times s/he will be able to get me any book I'm looking for from one of the other libraries in the County. And that's still free!  Cheesy

cool, thanks! I will definately check out walmart then (much as it pains me to shop there!) Grin

quick question:
where do you get the circle handles and how much do they cost? I would love to make this, but have almost no money for knitting right now, so projects must be reasonably cheap. (though I have about 4 more projects on my list ahead of this one, I like thinking ahead)

Thanks!

I was at Michael's today and they have all of these random yarns on clearance.  I remembered you all posting about using wool ease, so I got 5 balls for 5 bucks!  unbelievable
!!!!!!!!!!! OMG! I am SOOOO going to that store!!!!!!!!!

what size needle did you use to get the gauge?  I'm so bad at swatching for ribbed things because I can't ever figure out if the 4 inches should be with the ribbing stretched out or just in its natural scrunched up kind of state.
I am pretty sure I am using the size from the instructions. Either the ones from the pattern or the recommended ones on the yarn label... the project is at home, otherwise I'd be sure but I think I'm using #9s for the rib... Measure gauge without stretching. Hope this helps!

I am so excited ! I finished the back last night and started the front (going slower on this project due to 2.5 month old daughter in the house  Smiley) I did have some issues with the shoulder shaping though. Those who are done, did you use 4 rows to finish the shoulders or 8? I was having issues with binding off on both sides from either direction. I ended up using decs instead. Any thoughts?

Thanks,
K

Merrikat:

Seriously, don't be afraid of the heel turning. Though I haven't done these specific socks, I just went through a stint of doing 3 pairs of socks as gifts for people. I had never done them before, but honestly, if you just follow the instructions, it just starts happening like magic! If you want to give it a try before you commit to something this long, try just making bobby socks with 2 or 3 inch legs before the turn in a single color. I was able to knit up a pair with 3 inch legs in less than a week (single color again) for my hubby's grandmother who has diabetes. And that's with a 1 month old baby!

Good luck!

nice job, heartdoc!

I am most impressed with your pattern modifications, though being a more busty lass, I am somewhat grateful to read that the pattern isn't naturally that low cut  Grin

Many props!

Hey folks, I finally got to start this one (Woo hoo!) and have about 4" knit up of the back-- making large size due to bust measurement. Anyone finished this and have any size notes? I'm wanting this to be somewhat tight, but am concerned that it will hang loose on my waist. (Sometimes I hate being funny shaped.)

TIA!
