i want to join you guys.  although i've been knitting for a long while, this sweater seems a bit daunting (i don't know why, maybe because it just looks so intricate) and it would be nice to have the support of others! 
i'll look at yarn this wkd and get started!

i started this weekend and it takes so much concentration!  i'm using the cloverleaf lace pattern from SnBN, and it's not an 11-stitch repeat, which i think is making it harder, especially because that's where all the increasing and decreasing is done.  i think today i'm going to print out some graph paper and chart every single stitch, because trying to remember where to start on that lace pattern and how many stitches i have to count in from the end-- it's driving me nuts.  (yarrr!)  anyway, i'm about 4 inches in and it looks really good, so that's my major motivation right now!

I think I'm going to make something like this, but I'm going to leave off the lace on the sides. I want to make a tank with just the DNA cable in the middle (and on the back).

sounds great! - I can't wait to start mine too!
I've seen lots of cabled bags, and I'm thinking about trying with the DNA too - for some more instant gratification  Wink

argh!!  i think i have to rip out everything i've done!  i'm working on charting everything out, and i noticed when i was knitting the other night that i somehow have an extra stitch in my clover lace-- turns out i had a yo towards the end of that lace panel and no corresponding decrease.  i'm thinking it will end up looking better (plus give me WAY fewer headaches in the long run) if i just rip it now.  and start over completely.  i should do it right?  especially since it's going to be a gift?  right?

I back you! If you are going to hate it and think that it will take away from the "gift" quality................ rip it, rip it! How far are you in? can you find where the error occoured and rip to there? (LOL sp!)
well if you think that it is the best course of action..............get to it!

okay, i'm going to do it-- i'm about four inches into the front piece, and  the error occurred in the 3rd row of the lace, which means everything but the ribbing and the first two rows of pattern have to go!  basically what i did was i tried to sub a different lace pattern, but i should have just used a single repeat of the lace and then added st st to either side of the panel.  instead, i ended up with half a cloverleaf along the edge of the panel, with yo's but no decreases.

time to get to the ripping and the re-charting.  this chart is taking forever, but i feel like it's really going to be worth it in the long run.

the chart, she is finished:



it took FOREVER, especially because a) i'm starting with a size small and increasing at the bust to a size medium (so as to account for my friend's 38" chest and 26" waist) and b) i kept getting confused because the torchon lace repeat goes back and forth between 17 and 19 stitches, and it takes up 19 blocks on the chart and every time i counted my stitches i got thrown off.  but now it's done.  problem is, now i want to knit the whole thing in the round.  i've already frogged and cast on again, though, so i don't think that's going to happen.

thanks for the encouragement, maybe tonight i can get back to where i was before i frogged... probably not, though.
