41  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Re: Knitty's Viveka on: January 11, 2007 10:59:48 AM
Ok I lied.  Apparently I have Red Heart Soft Yarn (still really scratchy), Fuschia MC and Goldenrod(? I lost the band) for CC.  The guage was off so I had to alter the pattern a little, but I finished the back and have started on the front.  It looks pretty good, I still can't figure out exactly how much its going to stretch horizontally, it seems a little long.  Here's a link:

Immediately after I took this picture my dog jumped up and tried to go to sleep on the back, so it must be at least slightly appealing:)

This is the coolest thing I've ever seen!  I am getting a PhD in Biology right now, and I wish one of my friends were cool enough to make me something like that Cheesy

I know I'm a little late joining the KAL but I started this sweater about a week ago.  It is slow going, because all of my friends "expected" knit hats for Xmas (we live in San Diego, for godsakes.  They aren't going to freeze to death).  I am also using the Lion's Brand Wool-ease, kind of scratchy but I doubt I'll wear it without long sleeves anyway.  I'm knitting mc is a plum color and cc is gold.  I'll tr to post pics when I actually have something substantial done.

It is annoying, I agree, but that's the one bad thing about knitting in the round.  You have to imagine that once you start the next round you are on the next row even though the stitches are next to each other.  I was making Xmas stockings with a Fair Isle pattern, and it was really obvious where my starting place was.  I don't think there is anything you can do to fix it, other than put it in the back where no one will see it.
