Aw! Thanks! I figured out how to do it on my own last night..

I would definately donate, but we're poor.. and I mean poor.  We've got $50.  Yep.  Ha ha.

I do have one question though:

It says to repeat rows 2 - 3,  6 times (13 rows total).. (I hadn't thought of this part.. hoorah!) my gauge is 14sts by 18 rows..

Would I have to do the math (multipy or divide some by 6? or the number of sts, whatever)?

I don't get it - I can make my own patterns, but when it comes to pre-made ones, I get all.. overthinky.

Its me again!

Sorry for asking so many questions, but I'm just a little confused about the best way to get the sweater off the needles and onto the yarn so I can try it on. Do you just knit each piece with some selvage yarn? Or do you somehow thread it through? Threading seems like I would be in danger of dropping stitches, so how would I go about that?

Thanks for all your help everyone!

i just thread the yarn through with the same kind of needle i use to sewing seams. i just do several stitches at a time. i haven't dropped any stitches. it never occurred to me to actually knit the stitches onto the waste yarn. let us know how it works if you decide to do that!

yea i think i'll prolly just thread it...now if i could only find my tapestry needle =(.

Sorry one more thing, Glampyre makes it sound like you are only using 3 pieces of waste yarn, cuz she says put the body on a piece of yarn and the two sleeves each on a piece of yarn. I thought you would need 5 pieces of yarn, for the frontish part, the sleeves, and the body. But then I don't really understand how this sweater works =(

I finished mine yesterday and I'm really happy with the way it turned out. I'd definitely make another one...probably long sleeve. Here's a bad trying-to-take-a-picture-of-myself shot.

Okay, now *I* have a question.

I'm knitting this up in Paton's Decor (75 acrylic/25 wool). Gauge on band says 20 sts = 4" on size 7 needles. Gauge is too...small. So I tried it out on Glampyre's recommended size 9 needles; gauge is now a little more than 4 sts/inch. Still too small, and with the stretchy-ness I'm expecting from this pattern, the knit is already too loose; I don't want to go up to size 10 or 10 1/2 needles and be swimming in this sweater.

Anyone else have gauge problems, and deal with them? I know I can cast on more sts than the pattern, and work it that way (and basically re-write the pattern for my yarn/needles), but I'm sure that someone else has a simpler way...

TIA!
peace

Ha, I'm sure my gauge was WAY off the whole time I was making this. The patterns number of increases was going to make my sleeves monster sized, so I just quit when I felt they were big enough. Same thing with the body; just keep trying it on and decrease/increase accordingly.
