I should be knitting on my olympic project, but this just called out to me "you must knit me, you NEED me! NOW!" This was knit within a 24 hours, so it really didn't cut into the olympics too much. I love this pattern and the resulting minisweater!
all the yarn info and mods are on my blog! Thanks for such a great quick knit!

Cheesy   Cheesy   Hooray!  I finished mine!   Cheesy   Cheesy
I finished it, and it actually FITS!  Once I find a good brooch for it, I will post pics of me wearing it! 
For now, here's my Brown-Sheep Lamb's-Pride Bulky 1.5 skeins, turned into Antrhopologie-Inspired Winter Capelet:

Oh happy day!  I love it!  Thanks for the awesome tute and the even more awesome knit-along!  I'm seriously considering doing this in Noro Transitions next!  You haven't seen the last of the kookoo!   Grin

Very cute... I just love that yarn!

Hi:

I'm a pretty new knitter and started on this project... realized I was doing something wrong along the way, pulled it apart. Before I start again,would someone mind letting me know if a 'yo' simply means:
A) bringing the yarn to the back (because I was purling) OR
B) bringing the yarn to the back and then doing a purl stitch (and both of those steps count as 'yo')? Doing it this way would mean that I would not have a part of the yarn crossing over my stitch marker... (i.e. For doing yo using the B  (I think this is the right way) row 3: purl until stitch marker, bring the yarn to the back do another purl before slipping stitch marker over, do another purl bring yarn to back and purl) or Option A: purl until stich marker, bring yarn to back, move stich maker over, purl, bring yarn to back, and keep on purling

 ag! my head hurts! Does this question make sense??

Thanks in advance!

Sarah

Option A: purl until stich marker, bring yarn to back, move stich maker over, purl, bring yarn to back, and keep on purling.

that's the correct one, and my head hurt too when I tried to decipher YO's. This thread helped me out: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=58503.0

To me, and YO is simply:
- bringing the yarn to the front before making a knit stitch OR
- bringing the yarn to the back before making a purl stitch

If you're supposed to do a YO before a knit and a purl stitch (or a purl and a knit stitch), well...I dunno.  I don't think that should happen.  Maybe I'm doing everything wrong anyway. ^_^

I didn't use placemarkers on this project because I knew they'd confuse me.  So I can't help with slipping the PM between YO because I've never used a placemarker before.  Heh heh.

Oh, and another thing about this project...it helped me to remember that I would have ONE purl stitch in between to yarnovers.  I kept wanting to lump the yarnover and purl into one move, and it was confusing me.  So I had to say to myself,

purl purl purl purlpurl purl purl purrrrrlllllll
YARN OVER! just move the yarn to the back and that's it!
PURL ONCE!
YARN OVER!
Purl purl purl purl!  Remember to count that first purl when counting stitches!

I like to count as I knit to make sure that everything makes sense.  After the second YO, I kept forgetting to count the purl right after that and kept thinking that I was one stitch off.

Anyway...

Thank you, thank you, thank you emms and sprung. A good night sleep and some clarity with what the heck a yo is I think will help this thing look a little more like the picture

Cheers,

i finished mine a couple days ago and have been waiting for it to warm up a little bit to wear it for pictures, BUT its still freezing here so the pictures are just on a hanger  Undecided




i messed up the increases on the back, and its really lumpy in general because i had to use big needles to get the right gauge.  i'm thinking about blocking it but i'll probably just end up wearing it as is.  its made on paton's classic wool, which was on sale at ac moore for 3.99$!  thanks again for such an easy/quick project!
