1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Runway Knits Errata on: May 30, 2007 02:04:29 PM
Despite all the writings about meticulously tested patterns in this book I have found an error in the leaf-paneled sweater. At least I'm pretty sure I did.

Here's the deal, there are two reverse stockinette panels seperating the panels on the front and sides. Things were cruising along really well (too well, apparently) and then I started shaping the armholes. Here is what was the pattern instructed me to do:

Row 1 (WS): K2, work left leaf panel, sm, k2tog, k18, work right leaf panel, k2, work left leaf panel, k18, ssk, sm, work right leaf panel, k2
Row 2: Work even in pattern
Row 3: Work decreases as for Row 1
Row 4: Work even in pattern
Row 5: Work even in pattern

Repeat these five rows until there are two stiches remaining before and after each leaf panel.

So five rows means that the next time I work row 1 I will be working the RS and that does not look good (Believe me, I tried with disasterous results.)

That said, given that I'm not having a blonde moment (totally possible, but I thought I mastered the whole even and odd thing sometime in elementary school) does anyone know if there is an errata floating around there for this book? I've looked everywhere I can think and am left with nothing more than a WIP and a confused look on my face.
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Self-striping Yarn?? on: January 26, 2007 01:27:54 PM
Question from a semi-newbie. I was wondering if anyone could recommend a good self-striping yarn. I've used SWS before, but was wondering what was available in a worsted weight (or at least something a little lighter than SWS). Gauge and fiber content don't matter too much, but I don't want to send my bank account into shock either. Any suggestions would greatly be appreciated!
