Your progress looks great.  It's nice to see it in the original colors, because that is what I chose and I have been having second thoughts after seeing all the other color combos, but I do love the original.  I have to finish a couple of projects, then I am back on Venezia track.  I just wish I had more time to knit.  I do a lot of my knitting on the train to work, but Venezia is not a traveling project.  This is one I am going to need to focus on, but working full time, having a husband, three daughters and three dogs......it cuts into my knitting time at home!

Thanks!  Unfortunately I tried my sweater on again this morning after getting further along last night and I feel it's too tight now. Sad  The side seams are stretched a lot when I have it on.  I just don't think it will be okay, and I want this sweater to be a perfect fit.

So I am going to rip it and start over.  I am going to go up to size US3 needles.  Now, off to the yarn store I go for some new needles...

I started a pair of endpaper mitts last night as practice to work my way toward this... I have never done fair isle before, and learning to hold the yarn in my left hand is annoying. Odd, since I'm left handed! I have yarn to swatch for venezia, to make sure I like the colors before I go all out buying a sweater's worth, but I want to practice fair isle before I even swatch for the sweater.

would it be at all possible to convert eunny's colorwork into a slip stitch pattern at least for a two color variation?  i know fair isle knitting can be slow with switching yarns and worrying about tangles and such, so maybe that's the solution for people interested in a modified 2 color version...not sure that would work very well with 10 colors!  Smiley

This is a good time to use the Magic Loop method! No DPNS and all those annoying ladders. It is simple, I don't know why it isn't recommended for everything.

Oh, heavens, yes, the dpns. I haven't had much trouble with them, but it is so finicky using them for fair isle. I don't know magic loop, and while I have a good supply of dpns, I have no really long circulars, so now's not the time for learning it. Another problem I'm having is tension! I can't hold the left yarn as tightly as I am accustomed to holding the right, or comfortably at all, so my stitches are really uneven. I suppose (and certainly hope!) it just takes practice, so I'll get used to it eventually. If I get comfortable with fair isle from this one project, I may go ahead and swatch, but if not, I do have a couple other fair isle projects lined up for "practice."

not to get everyone totally off topic, but i have trouble doing magic loop with that few stitches, thus the dpns...  Sad

moraine, i know it's BRUTAL to frog! something that helped me (and I was 10 inches in before I realized it didn't fit) was to start a new one before ripping out the old. And also, think of what you've already done as the world's most thorough swatch!

Thanks.  I just went right ahead and ripped it once I made the decison to do so.  I'm not really bothered by it because I want it to be right.  Last night I started over with my provisional cast on and knit a couple rows, only to find it was twisted when I joined.  Arrgh.  So I'll start over again today.

MartiniMonsters:

I'm really curios to see how your progress with venezia is going. Do you have some new pics to show us??
