I love those patterns, but am nervous about them!  I have only knit socks, hats and scarves.  Would I be jumping in over my head?

Princessliak--I think this is a great project for you. It's just stockinette stitch, ribbing, increases and decreases, picking up stitches, and some seaming at the end, most of which you've probably had experience with (based on what you've knit before). ll I would say the pattern is a good challenge for a beginner. It's a great way to get practice. I find it very relaxing, it's easy enough to watch a movie while you knit but there's enough variance in the pattern that it keeps you interested in the project.

Plus there's a knitalong going on which means you have people to help you if you get stuck!

I've already bought the patterns and have some Paton's Brilliant in my stash to do Diamonique.  I'm hoping it will be one of my next projects!

I got the pattern and am going to fight through the self defeating thoughts!  I now get to find some suitable yarn!

This is my first project that isn't a sock or a scarf as well! We can be each other's support!

Any thoughts from you knitting goddesses on using my massive stash of cotton-ease for Ruby?

Though I am not a knitting goddess, I'll give my opinon.  Wink I think that cotton ease should work as it's worsted weight--just make sure to do a gauge swatch before starting!

Yeah! I finished the back of Ruby... such a quick knit. i have been knitting on Starsky in between sections of the back and I still finished it in just a few days. The front looks like it will go even quicker.

i just finished Diamonique, using Patons Grace.  It was a thinner yarn, so I made the L size and smaller needles hoping for a size M.  It seems to have actually worked!   Grin  The decreases are pretty tricky, as you have to keep the pattern going.  I wouldnt recommend it for a beginner, but someone who has experience with lace type patterns shouldnt have any problems.  The trick is to not K2tog when you dont have space for a YO at the end. Otherwise you wil end up with the wrong amount of stitches.   i posted a picture of my progress about 2 weeks ago on my blog, and will post a pic as soon as I block it.  (I will NOT be modeling it, as I just had a baby and have about 40 lbs to lose before it will look good on me.  Right now I look like a stuffed sausage in it)

Yeah! Finished and blocked.... geez, ruby was quick. I am holding off on making Diamondque because I already frogged it once and now the microspun is turning into Knit and Tonic's Somewhat Cowl. PIctures tommorrow hopefully, the Simply Soft worked out beautifully, although I am counting on the fact that it has a tendancy to stretch out a bit because I could afford some more coverage in the chesty parts! Depending on te shirt I wear under it, it could wind up constantly sliding off to the sides of my boobs, and since it is hot pink, I;d rather avoid drawing that much attention away from my face!
