my (very unfinished) Wicked has been sitting over in the corner for a few weeks now. i'm only like halfway through the shoulder increases. i just can't motivate myself to knit a sweater right now, as it's summer and about a million degrees outside.
i'm using some cheap brown acrylic yarn i got at Michaels, which isn't helping motivate me to finish this either.

I started my Wicked a few nights ago, though I haven't made much progress. (I also started socks that I'm nearly done with.)

My question, when I CO I couldn't use the 36" needles so I'm using the 24"...did anyone else have that problem? I ended up running to the yarn shop to grab a longer pair and it seems that I don't need them. I'm wondering if I'm the only one?

temptingpsydfx> I checked my needles, and I used 80cm.......which I think is 29 inches.
no problems for me! Cheesy

Here is a pic of the completed sweater....... I really think that I need to block it! The neckline is a bit wide and the sleeves are as well, I think that this has to do with the tossing and turning it went through as I was knitting.... not to mention the numerous times I held it up for others to admire! Cheesy


Still loving the colour and the KP WOTA.....
I wonder how much the blocking will change it!?!?!
Not much I hope! Cheesy
Loved this, and as I mentioned previously I am swatching for another one or two.... I think I will be altering my knitting plans to have a few more of these!
Can't wait to see the others!

arnogg> did you mention what yarn you used? I love that colour!

Here is my Wicked progress.  I am almost done with one sleeve (I'm doing 3/4 length sleeves).  I am making the 32-34" bust size and making it into a cardigan (obviously) and using Artyarns Supermerino.

Thanks!  I just looked at the picture again and the cardigan looks way longer than it actually is- that must be because of the angle I took the picture at, I guess?

silverilix> The yarn I used was Cascade 220 #9420, thanks, my daughter actually picked out the color.

aurelia> I am loving your cardi, the color is absolutely beautiful! Are you going to use buttons or a zipper? (I think I see button holes?)

The cardigan looks great!

I just switched to the 36" and now it's fine. Smiley Yay!

Lots of buttons!  (Probably too many, but oh well!)
