Bobolink- thanks for that posting about the error.  I've just done that bit, and remembered reading your post, but not taking it in properly because of not being at that stage yet. 

I've given up on using the Debbie Bliss Cashmerino superchunky for this, but I'm still feeling a bit funny about the Como.  My mum has given me some money to spend on treats, so I might also invest in some Rowan Polar.  There is some on ebay which I might watch to see if I can get it cheap, and also some for sale at Kangaroo.  But I'm still sticking with the Como until I'm done with the body - how can you tell otherwise?  I know I'll need a vest underneath it tho, but that isn't really a problem when it is a winter jumper! Smiley

ETA cause I'm over it now.

In terms of the pattern can somebody help me with what she labels RT and LT. I'm having a bit of trouble with them. Meaning I need an explanation as simple as possible, I keep getting a purl accidentally for one  of stitches.

For RT (right twist) keep the yarn in back (like during a knit stitch) and knit into the second stitch, but don't slip it off and then knit into the first stitch and slip both of them off together.
LT (left twist) - keep the yarn in back and knit into the second stitch through the back loop (don't slip it) and then knit into the first stitch and slip both of them off together.
I hope that helps.

 I just finished knitting all the individual pieces. I attempted grafting the two body halves and came out with a very obvious seam so I'll guess I'll have redo it. I'll practice on a little before I attempt again.

I'm going to be using Brown Sheep Lamb's Pride Bulky as my yarn sub. I bought a skein of it last Friday at my LYS to swatch. My gauge is a little off, I blame 1) My tight knitting and 2) shitty size 13 needles. I will fix this by knitting the next size up and keeping my fingers crossed that the finished product will fit the schematics for the size I should be.

So, I'm going to the shop today to order the rest of the yarn I will need and to pick up the needles.

ETA: Back from LYS, and the yarn is going to take an unknown amount of time to reach me. The needles, however, should be in "Oh, I'd say in just 2 or 3 weeks." Just? *face palm* On the bright side, this give me plenty of time to be monogamous with my Cherie sweater.

even though I still have 1 sleave to do, I've tried sewing top and bottom together...big mistake.  I'm seriously going to have to go to my LYS to have somebody show me. No online anything is helping me.

I'm terrified of the grafting.  I had to do it for the underarms of a sweater I just finished, and it came out way wrong.  I will definetly need lessons when I get to that part--perhaps this thread will become the "Kitchner Support Group" thread LOL

I have only done the Kitchner stitch once & it turned out OK but it was at the bottom of a bag. This has me worried as well!

Just when I'm feeling confindent in my knitting abilities...... Sad

I finally got my grafting looking halfway decent. I watched the video on www.knittinghelp.co m and then practiced on swatches for awhile. I really don't want to redo this seam again so I am just going to hope that blocking will fix all of uneveness of it.

thank you soooo much for posting that pie! I've started, and I've understood the grafting stitch. Except for one stitch where I did it slightly backwards and got a purl instead (not fixing it) I'm half way through grafting! I'll just need to go back and manually "tighten" up some of my stitches. Wink
