31  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Re: Pinup Queen?? on: August 10, 2004 04:50:10 PM
 Grin Great minds think alike, eh, kitty???
Glad to hear it's knitting up well... I can't wait to start it! (Just one more pair of socks to go...)

I bought yarn to make this sweater, but I have become swamped in the land of wool blend socks for various family members (what did I get myself into???)
Anyway, I bought a beautiful Rose Heather Worsted Wool-Ease by Lion Brand. I'm really excited to start this one! Hopefully, I will finish my LAST pair of socks for family on my list quickly so I can get started on this!

If I remember right (I'm not looking at my hoodie right now, but I think I can explain it...), look at the inside of the hoodie and pickup stitches that are in the same straight line from where you're working now... It's kind of weird when you're first doing this because the left and right fronts end up overlapping to make a V that goes into the hood. So you're kind of picking up sts for the left that have already been done on the right, if that makes sense. There is going to be a row where the same sts suddenly spawn off into two directions on the next row. Or put another way, since you already did the pocket, picture picking up 24 sts from the back to form that second layer, its just that you're not going to reconnect the two layers back together... instead, they're going to split and form the hood.

I hope that makes some sense. i agree that a picture would be helpful... but my digital camera is at home (as is my hoodie, while I'm at work) and I don't know how to upload yet, otherwise I'd oblige... I hope this helps some!  Smiley

finished mine over the weekend (lovely maternity leave allows for many knitting breaks during the day)... still have to block and had to do some minor repair work (how did a hole appear at the base of the hood???) but am totally stoked on it...

now if only it weren't 80 degrees both day and night... will post pics when I can

That is awesome! I love the color combo! I can't wait to have something to show off!

I got most of the way through the pocket last night, but I got confused. Did everyone have to pick up the sts and then cut the yarn in back and start over in front? I couldn't figure out how to get the skein of yarn to the front side without cutting it. Oh well...just an extra end to hide, right? I'm hoping to get to the stripe on the front tonight, if possible.

little mama:
What kind of yarn are you using? It looks similar to the Superwash I got from Elann.com (the purples anyway. I'm using a dark Aubergine for the MC and a similar bright lilac for the small stripes. My big stripes/sleeves are an icy Nordic blue).
Finished my back piece... now working on picking up sts for the pocket. Has anyone tried using a crochet hook instead of the needles to pu? I'm wondering if it might be easier I keep having trouble with the yarn splitting or catching the existing stitch on the way up...

TIA,

K
