Please excuse the genuinely awful picture, but I felt as though I should update...



I cut one of the increase repeats, as I was getting close to finished measurements with 5. I'm thinking that with the dropped stitches it will turn at slightly bigger, which is a bit ironic as I was initally thinking smaller Smiley.

I find that just as I am getting bored it is nearly time to drop a stitch, and it is really satisfying to go down the ladder, giving the stitches a helping hand.

How are other people going on progress and yarn decisions?

Looks good so far. Smiley

I really looked forward to dropping the stitch, too. It was the highlight of the pattern repeat.

Plus, there's always the benefit of telling your home ec. teacher that you're dropping stitches on purpose.

Well, I find it satisfying.

Aw, that is really sweet, snacker! I think the clap is great TV knitting--maybe you should go rent like five movies and just power through it. (It looks like you're about halfway through the straight section already, so you may only need, like, four movies.)

snacker-- what a great idea! and it's so pretty!


----

general question:

b/c this thread's so long it's easier to ask than look through the posts...

has anyone made one out of cotton???
i'm planning on making one out of some worsted weight dishcloth cotton i have in my stash. and would like to know if it's just as easy to make in cotton as it was for me to make out of an acrylic/wool blend. i have a feeling it'll have a lot more drape w/o blocking (i had to block my first one, it was a giant lump)

thanks!

I believe there have been cotton ones made, but maybe cotton blends. The dishcloth cotton will be pretty heavy if you're making a full size. I'd suggest lion's Cotton Ease or another cotton/acrylic blend. You can search only this thread by putting `cotton' into the search field and choosing `Just this topic' and see what posts you come up with.

TLC makes a good cotton blend that's light and shiny... i like it a bit better than cotton-ease. but i really like the color i have (seafoam green/white/powder blue). i keep seeing it in my head. hmmm  i don't think it'll be too heavy b/c i've crocheted shawls out of the stuff before. hmmmm


thanks for the search tip... didn't know i could run a search in just this thread! i'll check it out!
