Moraine and Cynder - you're both knitting so fast! I figure this project will take me forever, but that's probably because I'm knitting easier items on the side. anyway, it's inspiring to see your sweaters grow so quickly.

I decided to rip again. This time, I ripped everything I had knitted except for the bottom band. I did it because the knitting I did on the circulars looked way much better than that on the dpn's, and since I want this sweater to be as percect as can be, I ripped for the 3rd time. I'm so happy I started with a sleeve, would have been devastated if it was the body I had to rip for the 3rd time.

LOL I'm happy with everything except my bottom band.  I am having dreams of ripping it out and re-knitting it on smaller needles, But I think I will see if I can get the wonkeyness to block out first.  If not, Snip, rip, I hope I don't miss.

Thanks!  I am working on the fourth repeat too.  I have about 19 rows to go before I start the armhole steeks.  I'll also be starting the neck steek a few rows after that since I am making a scooped neckline instead of the boatneck.  Once I get going on that it should move a lot faster.   Grin

How are you planning on altering for the boatneck?  That sounds like it will be a lot more pratical, and yes, faster.

I've never had such problem with gauge before. That could be because I almost always cheat from gauge tension and hope for the best.
Now that I'm knitting with circulars my knitting is much tighter, so I have to go down from 3 mm to 2.5 mm. The pattern calls for 2.75 mm, but I've searched several online yarn stores in Europe, and it is impossible to find.
I don't have 40 cm circulars in 2.5 mm so I have to wait until tomorrow before I can knit more, and I'm eager to start now. I had so looked forward to an evening with Venezia, but I have to be patient..

Argh- I hadn't even thought about a difference in gauge between circs and DPN's.  I think I knit tighter with DPN's, but I will keep my faith in the power of the blocking gods if it is off just a little bit.

Faster from a knitting standpoint.  Wink But it did take me a lot of time charting the sweater out.  I am going to steek the neckline.  At the bottom front of the neckline, I'll bind off some stitches and start the steek.  Then I'll decrease on following rows to acheive the curve that I want (which I have charted out).  At the shoulders I've planned out some short rows to add some slope to the shoulder.  In my mind it should work, but my mind may not be considering everything and I may have to make changes when I get to that point (considering this will be my first time steeking and first true fair isle garment. lol).  I'll be doing a three-needle bind off to attach the shoulders.  At the back neck I'll do another steek in a similar manner, except that it will only curve down a bit.  Then when it's all assembled, I'll pick up and knit on a neckband similar to the one around the bottom of the sweater.  That's my current plan anyway.   Tongue

Sounds good!

As tempting as it sounds, I think I will play it safe and knit as the pattern states.

You can always use two circs.  Or one long circ and do the magic loop.  I think I'll do one of those options...haven't decided yet.

I'm trying to prepare myself mentally to start this sweater, would like to have a venezia when autumn comes but so far I'm still struggling with colour choices, considering knitting at least three different versions after seeing all your beautiful creations. Not realistic, I know, but neither is settling on ten colours of the hundredandsomething available...

Those of you doing the original colours, when looking at it from a distance does it look stripey, or does the brocade still come out? I think I would like a slightly more subtle colourtransition than seen in the mag, maybe throw in some greens for the yellow.

Will probably stalk around here for another while first to gather courage and inspiration!

Mistakes done in life and in mohair can't be ripped.
