So I found this free Berrocco pattern while scouring the interweb for, well, free patterns the other day

http://www.berroco.com/188/188_tatania.html

I quite like the shape and ribbing and whatnot, although i'll probably make the sleeves much shorter (i.e. cap sleeves). The recommended yarn has been discontinued and I prefer acrylic anyway, so I'm thinking of doing this in Plymouth Encore D.K. ($1.50 at smileysyarns!) burgundy tweed.

Anyone care to join me?

-Tatania sweater
-black opera gloves
-modify the Barbara wrap top from Adriafil so that it turns into a close approximation of the Sarah shawl collared cardigan from whiteliesdesign.com
-Clover Lace Wrap from SNBN
-fishnets from SNBN
-vintage stockings (http://www.knitting-crochet.com/messto.html)

It's always nice to have a justification for buying yarn. Went to the LYS and bought the yarn for this baby today. Now, as soon as my needles are freed up from their current burden, it's on to Tatania.

Mine is, in fact, going to be nice and multicoloured. The center horizontal ribbing will be a dark turqouisey teal colour, and the rest will be a mulberry colour. All in Plymouth Encore, which is the first "close to high end" yarn I've ever played with. Whee!

SCORE! So i won an ebay lot of 8 skeins of Bouquet Firecracker yarn a few days ago, but as Bouquet is canadian and Firecracker is a discontinued vintage yarn (or so i'm guessing from the labels), i could find absolutely no info on it before bidding. so i took a chance and bid anyway. the yarn has just arrived and not only is it lovelier than the picture made it out to be, i received 9 skeins instead of 8 and (this is the best part) it's the perfect yarn for this pattern: slightly different fiber content than the recommended discontinued yarn, but a wool blend nonetheless and with the exact same required gauge! i much prefer the color to that of the plymouth (delicious peacock blue with just the tiniest bit of magenta, yellow, and cyan fuzz). now all i need are some straight 7s. or, well..............hm. i have 6s And 8s, so hopefully i'll be able to get 8 sts per 1" with one of those.

Ok, after I finish my third Tempting (this one for my mom, though my dad liked it so much I might have to make one for him, LOL)  and my Gigi, I might make this IF anyone thinks at least a good part of this can be made on circs because I abhor seaming. Looks like it could be made out of about any worsted weight yarn, too.

MY age may be showing, but I actually bought the original pattern booklet just to make this exact sweater (and later scored some 16 balls of pinky-purple SensuWool on eBay)! How can I not join you?
The pattern's very straightforward, and liberal use of stitch markers will make this a fairly mindless project.

Halfbaked cake, The back is just plain ribbing - go for it! I'm definitely doing mine circular as well.

Juniper13, Thanks for the inspiration! This will be a lovely contrast to my other knitalong!

i'm thinking you can do this on circs all the way up to the armholes, leaving you with only shoulder seams and armholes (if you're not hacking off the sleeves like me) to seam.

on another note, apparently my yarn tension is such that i'd have to go get some 5s to get the reccomended gauge and then this would be thicker than i want. fuck that noise; that's what math is for. my st gauge is .9 of the recommended one, so i'll just adjust all the numbers slightly. oddly, my row gauge is 22 per 2" as compared to the recommended 15. wtf.....

I had to go up to size 8's. Finally cast this baby on. Quickly coming to the conclusion that my knitting is the best reason for me to lose weight (size large.....all those stitches....Oh my....)

hahahahaha i know what you mean. the fatness of ribbing makes me feel like i'm heavier than i am.

i cast on with the 6s and have decided to make the entire thing XS except for the front panel, which will have to be adjusted to be slightly larger for the sake of my chest. granted, if i don't adjust the stitches for the front panel it will just sort of end up larger (stupid fat gauge), but i'll work that out when i come to it. i'm going to make the scoopneck a bit lower as well, but since i'm only a couple inches into the back..............


yeah. we'll cross that bridge when we come to it.
