i just got the vintage knits book for xmas (w00t, holla) and i'm absolutely dying to knit this up!

mmm, and think about wearing this in hip little places around town, not just on a bike in the woods like it's pictured.  so versatile.

and everyone knows i loves me a versatile FO.  w3rd.

How is everyone doing on this?  I'm knitting the smallest size, and I swear that I'm going to run our of yarn before I finish.

grrrrrr....

Still knitting along....  Kid Silk "spit slices" beautifully, which is very nice on a lace project. 

But I have to say that any knitting technique that involves spitting on one's yarn is very, very, very conspicuous when done in a doctor's waiting room.

(I used water from the drinking fountain, and skipped the spit part altogether.  But I still felt pretty unsanitary, wetting my yarn in a public drinking fountain...)

I bought yarn for this, but I can't make any promises that I'll finish (or even start) it anytime soon.  I sub yarn with wild abandon, and I bought Misti Alpaca Laceweight (picture on my blog) because I really dislike mohair.  I'm hoping this yarn works out alright.

It is looking more and more like I'll run out of yarn.  I'm ripping apart my swatch, and hoping for the best.

Almost done with the knitting...I'm working on the sleeve caps, and of course still have to so the neckline and sewing up. 

Sigh....So close.  If it weren't hairy mohair, I might consider cannibalizing the bottom edge.  But ripping out backwards if a pain, even under the best circumstances.

I finished knitting all the parts!!!!  I didn't have to tear the sweater to pieces to get extra yarn.   

Okay.  Well.  Technically the sweater is still in pieces, so tearing it into pieces might be redundant, but who cares!  I'm done with all the big stuff!

So, now all I have to do is sew 'em together, make a neckband, and see if the durn thing even looks good on me...

Hello knitting folk

I am knitting Aimee and finding it mighty confusing! The first pattern repeat was fine but the rest with all the modifications are confusing. Can anyone shed some light on it for me? Anyone having similar problems?

Thanks

Jessie-In-Stitches

What are you confused about?  Trying to keep the lace pattern while increasing and decreasing?  If that's the problem, remember that you can "fake" your edge stitches, because they'll be inside of your sewn seam. 

*****************************

I have to say that I agree with the blogger who thought that a three-needle bind off on the shoulders would be best.  I followed the instructions, and realized that the shoulders could get really ugly when I sew them closed.  Also, my arm holes seem way, way too large for my sleeves. 

So, I spent the better part of last night ripping back and cursing.  I'm not quite sure what's going to happen next.

Okay, let me be more specific, if i can... (thanks for your help!) you'll see I'm pretty confused.

Order of events:
-- the first time you do the pattern repeat you just follow the directions; you knit rows 1-6 as written for the lace, then 6 more with two decrease rows for the stockinette. I did that part okay.
-- then it says, "cont in patt, dec 1 st at each end of 3rd row". Of course the 3rd row HAS a decrease in it already as written. And am I supposed to do all 12 rows before moving on to the next bit...
-- then it says, "work 9 rows, ending with a WS row". I guess my question is where am I at this point? did I just do a whole repeat? Or am I starting after the 3rd row with the decrease.
-- then it says, "inc 1 st at each end of next and every following 4th row..." but does that mean every 4 rows, or does it mean every row #4 in the 12 row repeat?

Oy vay! Can you see where my confusion lies? It's actually funny how hard it is to describe your own confusion. It's confusing!
