I really want to start this pattern, but I'm not sure if I want to use the knitpicks yarn or thickn quick.  Any thoughts??   Huh  I feel like I need to finish a couple other projects before I start this one!

I started with Woolease thick and quick. I thought that it was too bulky. I have since changed to worsted ( requires lots of math). As far as the knitpicks yarn... I have no idea. It seems that people are digging it.

I have one sleeve done and have started on number two.

Anyone else having problems seaming the reverse stockinette?  I'm following the technique shown in Vogue Knitting for reverse stockinette.  My seams are SO obvious, and not very pretty at all.  It's so bad that I'm actually thinking about seaming the stockinette (wrong) sides, leaving an exposed seam on the right side of the garment.  Any suggestions would be EXTREMELY welcome.

Wow, this one's just not working for me so far...  The cables are not being my friend and I'm just not happy with it, so for now I'm going to put it on hold.  Hopefully I'll get it done at some point, but for now it's driving me batty.  I think I'm going to start with the circular shrug over on another thread and then move on from there.  It's got the same shape, which I think holds my facination for this one, so it might just satisfy the craving... Smiley  I'll be checking in regularly though, trying to get up the nerve to do it! Cheesy

Here's my 1st sleeve so far.  It's almost up to my armpit.  I've had to unravel parts of it a few times, but now I have the pattern down by heart and can just sit and knit it.



LolaBella:  I'm sorry that it hasn't been working out.  Like I said, I've had to reknit parts of it because the cables were off or I forgot to put in a bobble.  I hope your other project is less frustrating!

Well, this is my first post here at craftster, so be kind! I was browsing the KALs to see what looked good, and for some reason this attracted my attention!  Huh So, as soon as I get the shawl done for my MIL (yuck! "fuzzy" and "suede" yarn that glitters ...she picked it out) I'll start.

I'm going to try this shrug from this thread:

http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=45597.0

And then there's a sweater I want to do with the green yarn I was using for this.  I think I'm going to be making up my own pattern for it, but here's the thread I started for that: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=54170.0

But I'm still going to be checking in here... I love to see what everybody's done!

Your beautiful blackberries have inspired me to try one of my own--and it will be my first sweater, so I'm pretty excited. I'm going to make it using the Knitpicks Sierra in Leaf.

However, I need to pick up some size 13 circular needles first. So here's my newbie question: how long should my circular needles be? Is one length more versatile than another?

Any wisdom you could pass my way would be much appreciated!

I'm curious to hear how all of y'all using Knitpicks Sierra are doing- I think I want to use KnitPicks Decadence (same gauge, but 100% superfine alpaca).

Also, since I hate seaming, I am thinking about trying to knit the sleeves in the round. I seriously HATE seaming.

You need a pretty long one, at least 29 inches in order to fit all the edge ribbing on. Good luck. I hope to finish mine soon.
