I'm going to try this.  My results might not be pretty, but I might aswell try.  At the moment, I just grabbed some old acrylic out of my box of doom, as my mother calls it, and got to work.  I'm hoping it won't turn out to terrible!  I'm using the $5 in Paris instructions.  Wish me luck!

Just look at it this way... it's a learning experience  Cheesy I've never made a 'wearable' before so I understand your trepidation *hugs*

For what it's worth, I've been wanting to make the '$5 In Paris' sweater and maybe I'll get to it when my needles are free (I have way too many WIP right now...). It's a good pattern and I love the neckline!

Good luck with your sweater!! Cheesy

Thanks for the advice peps. If I wasn't so eager to get this done, I probably would practice... oh well. I'm confident enough.

I've had to restart the dang thing about four times- twice because I couldn't concentrate on the plane flying here then twice because I'm just dumb... I'm about to do the row to place markers (again...) and so far so good.

Oh gawd... don't feel bad *hugs* I can't count how many times I've had to restart something because I made a stupid goof  Roll Eyes I try to look at those as... "learning experiences" LOL

Just take your time... when I hurry, that's when I end up making the stupidest goofs. Good luck on your sweater  Cheesy

teehee, I just had to rip mine out because I accidentally dropped a stitch marker, and when I tried to replace it, I realized I had placed it wrong originally  Roll Eyes

I dropped a place marker and put it back in the wrong place. but i decided to ignore it and instead count the stitches out when I reached the sleeves bit and do a bit of creative marker shuffling until it worked Smiley

So far so good ladies. Made a few minor mistakes, but I just went with it cause I think it gives it character. I'm close to slipping the armpits, so that's kind of exciting. Sorry no pictures, but being on vacation does have its drawbacks.

Hope everyone elses sweaters are going well... don't give up hope!

I'm almost finished with the body, just 10 cm or so to go. I'm knitting mine in wool, which doesn't go very well with the current weather. Sunshine and 25o C.

I really love knitting this and I'm already planning another one and  probably another one after that.

After much stalling, I finally separated my sleeves (I'm doing a top down cardi, my first).

The yarn is Bergere de France's magic (50/50 wool/acrylic blend) in a nice aubergine colour. I'm doing it on 5,00 mm needles.

If you want to read my notes my blog is http://cranberry-twosticksandanafro.blogspot.com/

ETA: trimmed picture.

That looks really good so far  Smiley  And it looks like it will be super comfy when it's done.  I'm about at the same point you are with my sweater, just need to get a picture up.
