I think someone posted this already, but I forgot what page it was on. Here's the errata:

thanks roxy- I looked through the errata when I first started having problems and couldn't find anything on this sweater. I e-mailed Stephanie about it, so hopefully a correction will be added for this sweater too.


Yep, it's a knit blog

Here's the keyhole sweater. I just need to weave in the ends and find a button. Bah. It's ok I guess, but it didn't turn out as well as I would have liked. I'm super aggravated at the terrible neckline instructions and the lack of errata for this pattern. I love just about everything in the book though, so hopefully my next fitted knits sweater will cause me less frustration.
craftykate, this is gorgeous! i love the color and the fit is GREAT. it looks awesome on you.

I am working on the airy wrap around sweater, and I thought I would mention this, since I figure there is at least one other person out there who would be bothered by this, and it's not part of the errata.

On the cable border of the body section, you reverse the direction of the cable crosses at center back, but the cable pattern is not centered at the center back.  I don't know if that makes sense.  But it bothered me enough that I frogged the cable border and adjusted the pattern to make it perfectly symmetrical.

Thanks cleandirty. I just casted on for that one, and think it would bother me too. I'll keep an eye out when I get to that point.

Ok I don't have pictures at the moment, but I need everyone's opinion. I'm done knitting the sleeves (in the round) and while seaming up the bottom, I noticed that the sleeves were big and loose around my elbows. So I have two options, leave it loose, which looks fine, or to gather them so they kind of poof out. See it's really hard to explain without pictures, but I'm sure you can imagine. I simply gathered the sleeve at the bottom with the thread I used to sew it up. Which would you choose? Once I get pictures you can see how it looks on me, but I think either way is nice. I just can't make up my mind!!

I vote for gathering! I think it'd be more in keeping with the style of the knit. But I'm sure whichever you end up going for will look great Smiley

Who would have thought - I have a blog!

Voila my version of the Airy Wrap! The pattern calls for a thin mohair yarn, but I wanted something a little more rustic. I chose an alpaca that was much thicker, so went up two needle sizes (to 13s) and bought more skeins and went for it.

Very satisfying knitting - thick yarn, fat needles. The only part I didn't really consider in my calculations was the thickness of the front ties - I hated the floppy quality of the original ones, but they are seriously thick with this yarn. Someone described the length of the ties as epic and I think the word begins to do them justice. At least the pattern was easy; the only changes I made was knitting the sleeves in the round (why weren't they written that way in the first place?) and I shortened the ties somewhat. An adult height of 5'2" is not forgiving enough for long, long ties...

Overall, I'm very pleased with the way it fits and how warm it is. Plus I love the look of cables when they're used as edging like this. My kitty is also pleased, because the yarn is relatively untreated and smells just faintly of alpaca. I made him a Feline Dim Sum from the leftovers and filled it with organic catnip, and so we are pleased.

Thanks for looking!
