MartiniMonsters, the colours look great!
I've also chosen to work with greens instead of the blues, but I will work with two shades of pink where your lighter greens are. I will order the yarn by the end of the month, can't wait to get started!

Hey all,

I just found this thread and thought I would join in the fun. I am about 5 inches into the sweater, after doing lengthy calculations to figure out how to lengthen it without compromising the pattern. I've chosen colors that don't resemble the original colors at all - pinks, browns, blues, and red - and I love the overall effect.

Here is my Venezia so far:

Hopefully the hem won't flip out so much once it's done and blocked...

okay, i just cast on for this last night! What a ridiculous amount of stitches! I'm only on row 11 of the stockinette hem so i dont have anything to show yet. I really need to get a longer size 2 circ, i'm working on a 24inch with 356 stitches and it looks like i'm knitting a tiny ruffle!

okay so this is 2 days of serious knitting even though it doesn't look like much. This is definitely not a quick knit. My progress is laying on top of my swatch so you can see my colors.



The invisible folded hem took up a lot of time and now that i'm working the pattern it is going a little bit quicker. Did anyone see anything about how much ease is built in? I am knitting the 46inch and it says that it is 46 inches at the widest part of the bottom, mine is bigger than that and i am getting gague, so i'm not sure whats up with that

According to that pattern diagram, you should be getting a finished measurment of 46".  Also, if you take your cast on number of 356 and divide it by the pattern stitch gauge, you get 356/7.75 = 45.93".  Which is ~ 46" like the diagram shows.  It seems your gauge must be a bit off if your sweater is turning out larger.  Maybe try re-measuring your stitch gauge over a wider area and see if it truly is 7.75 sts/in or slightly less.  If you're off by just 0.25 sts/in (i.e. getting 7.5 sts/in), it will add 1-1/2 inches to the circumference of your sweater.

okay, here is today's progress, hopefully i'm not boring everyone to death with my pictures, i am in love



I think i figured out my gague issue. My gague swatch was done in all fairisle, i didn't do any plain stockinette rows to emulate the hem, and my fairisle is tighter than my hem, so i think my hem may be a bit rufflier than the sweater, hopefully i can block things evenly later, if not i will rip off the hem and just rib the bottom

I ordered the yarn for this project from Yarn and Fiber Company.  They had a kit made up, so I just stuck with the original colors.  It was getting way too complicated trying to change out the colors.  I was afraid I would make a mess of things.

This is going to be a very challenging project.  It will probably take me forever to make it, but I really want to do this.  I am taking a class on Saturday with the owners of Philosopher's wool on how to do their two handed fair isle.  They are in the area for Stitches West and they are teaching a class at one of my local yarn stores (Black Sheep Knittery in Hollywood, if anyone wants to sign up).

Rorosity,
Can you post the link to where you bought the kit? That's a great idea!
I don't think I can swap out colors either.
Thanks!
Val
