Would anyone care to Roam-along with me?  I saw lots of positive feedback for the pattern when this issue was launched so I'm hoping there'll be some takers!

I cast on last night while watching episodes 11 and 12 of Heroes, and I'm a whole 30 rows in  Roll Eyes  I'm using Jaeger Trinity which is a silk/cotton/some other stuff blend, and the colour's 'Water' which is a light grey-blue; very pretty.

I'll post pics once I've done the rest of the decs on this left front.  Hope you'll join me!

I LOVE this pattern. I have to hold off for a while (too many things going right now). How's all the seed stitch going? I think that would drive me nuts, but I read somewhere that the pattern writer (my mind has blanked on what you would call her) said it's easier if you hold the yarn in your left hand. Once I teach myself that, I will be making this. It's the perfect hoodie pattern.

I knit continental and I still hate seed stitch.  which is probably the only thing keeping me from starting this, as I've been looking for a perfect, simple fitted hoodie.  oh well, I'll keep one eye on this thread and the other on my stash, I guess.

How's all the seed stitch going?

It's not too hideous, so far  Roll Eyes  I'm just done with a 1x1 rib scarf so I'm in the 'K1,P1' zone I guess.  So far it's looking really pretty, the stitches are a bit uneven but I think the slightly slubby texture of the Trinity has a lot to do with that.  Blocking will work wonders *positive thinking*

I'm a right-hand wrapper when using straights (like in this project) and personally find it MUCH easier than using my left hand for seed stich or ribbing.  If this project had required circs (when I have to wrap with my left, weirdo that I am) I don't think I would've done it, I find it much too much like hard work.

 I just started this sweater this weekend. I'm doing it with Knitpicks Wool of the Andes so we'll see how it differs from the original.

 I find the seed stitch not so bad. I knit with both hands and find throwing is faster and easier on my hands. It's going pretty quickly.

 I'm glad to see others are knitting it as well.

I am in the process of moving, but as soon as I unpack all my knitting gear, I am going to start this.  I've never made a people sweater before, so hopefully I do okay on this.

Yay, I was worried for a while this was going to be a solo-KAL Tongue

I'm having a crazy-busy week but I'm knitting a row or two when I get the chance; I'm halfway though the increases on the left front and I'm loving how the fabric is knitting up in Trinity.

Here's some hastily snapped and slightly blurry progress pics:


I'm loving the faux-seam!  This is quite a good colour representation, depending on the light the yarn seems either blue-grey or grey-blue.  Either way I really like it!

Looking forward to seeing some other people's takes on this Smiley

That's looking beautiful, jane_101. I had considered making this one for my mom for christmas (she loves hoodies), but couldn't decide on a yarn to sub for her. Now that I've gotten some good suggestions, I'll be joining after payday (or when I get my cherie amour done, if I can get my butt to finishing the sleeves).

I'm thinking about making this sweater too!  I have a wip in a brown/yellow variegated malabrigo that is sort of failing and I thought this might be a better pattern for it.
The pattern that I started is mostly st st and I don't like all the pooling.  I was thinking the seed st in this sweater might be a better idea but I haven't decided.
Here is a pic of the pattern and yarn of the sweater I am thinking of frogging and turning into Roam instead:

Ooh, Malabrigo, lovely!  That's a very pretty colourway too.  Have you decided whether to rip and try it out on Roam?

I'm done with the left front, woo!  Cool  I cast on for the back this morning too, figured I would get the biggest part out the way now before I lose momentum.  Second sleeve syndrome is VERY likely to attack me on this one I think!  Anyways I'm still really pleased with the way it's looking, I'd post another pic but it's not all that different to the ones above really, just a bit longer Tongue
