Here, here to reviving the Arisaig thread!
I have been so slack lately, because of work and all, really tired....
All I have to do is sew the up the arms, make those little tie-up thingies and i'm done. 
The thought of going back to it and sewing up those tiny
stitches frightens me! 
So close, yet so far.    Sad

*waves* I'm still here.  I'm making slow but steady progress, it's nice to have something interesting to do alongside my nice but oh-so-repetitive Tubey.

I was initially scared of the teeny tiny needles involved and I have to admit, about half an inch into the ribbing I wondered what the hell I was thinking LOL.  But I soon fell into my groove and it's been plain sailing since then, oh and the joy of moving up to the 'big' needles, I never thought 2.75mm could seems so LARGE Tongue

I'm up to the armholes shaping on the back, once that's done I'll post a progress picture Smiley

I'm going to order yarn from Knit Picks next week.  I think I'm going to make this for my mom... any suggestions on which kind of yarn would be the best?  They're not very descriptive in terms of what yarns may be itchy if not on the feet.

2 questions...

Is anyone doing a large?
and
Have the changes mentioned on this thread been made on Knitty.com for the medium?

I hate frogging and I'll really hate it if I have to frog something that's knit so small.

Hi qbmaya,

I am doing the large -- I'm about three inches off having the back done.  As for the changes you were asking about, the 'missing row' one knitter found hasn't been updated on the pattern I don't think.  As for the problem with the sleeve sizes for the larger sizes, from what I can gather from Ysolda's blog she's not intending to rewrite the pattern -- I think her advice was to make a sleeve size smaller than you usually would to accomodate the extra-generous proportions??

If I've got this wrong, please feel free to correct me, anyone! Smiley  I'm a way off making the sleeves myself but when I DO get to it, I want to be sure I'm doing the right thing Cheesy

HTH, Jane.

Ooh -- this is a beautiful pattern.  Maybe I'll join my first knit-along.  Finding needles and wool seems like a good Saturday project.

Hi ladies, just as a reminder and for the gals that don't know, my chat to ysolda about the missing row for the arms is on page 4 of this thread.

I should be posting finished pics next week, finally! Yipppeeee...

I bought yarn and needles yesterday -- I'm using Dalegarn Baby Ull in a spring green with a darker green border. 

Question for anyone - in the lace pattern, there is a YO as the first stitch of one the rows.  How do you do this as the first stitch, when the yarn isn't already in a knit or purl position (or am I missing something)?  I figured I have a long time (through the ribbing) before I need to know.  Smiley

Thanks for any help.
