 :)Please  post pics of your progress when you get the chance, i'd love to see how it looks in mist i bet its really beautiful.



I'm moving on with my starsky the back and the two sides are done and i have one sleeve finished, knitting the sleeve was sooooo boring  that i've decided to start on the collar today instead of the second sleeve, i'll leave that till theres something good on tv to take my mind off the endless rows of st st.

Edit: well the collar is done it wasn't as painful to knit as i thought, i recommend that before you start you make yourself a cup of coffee (or something alittle stronger) take the phone off the hook and shut all distractions outside, the short row shaping needs a certain amount of concentration and really has to be knit in one go.

Also do not decide when the bottom edge of your collar gets to 2" that its quite long enough and bind off, Wink i found this out the hard way and ended up having to undo my bind off edge and continue the collar until the bottom edge was 3.5" as the pattern said.  Roll Eyes

Just hit my first biggie problem, the body of the sweater is done no prob there it looks great, and i have 1 completed sleeve so far this is where i hit a snag i knit the sleeve exactly as the pattern says but when i pinned it to the body to check the size its huge i don't think my arms are abnormal but the sleeve is wayyyy too long and really saggy and loose.

I guess its back to the drawing board with the sleeves Angry

I've ran across this problem with another pattern.  Simply because I made a say size 40" for finished measurements for bust, but the sleeves would be wayyyyyyyyyyyyy big.  So I'm thinking that you may have to make the sleeves following one size, and the body of the sweater a total nother size.  Am I making any sense here?

I'm making the smallest size so there is no smaller pattern for the sleeves, i think i've solved my problem though, i've worked out a sleeve pattern that should fit my teeny tiny little stick arms  Tongue fingers crossed

Awesome Scarlett.  Are you ladies finding this pattern takes extreme concentration. I've just ripped out two rows because I know I messed my count up, and I hope it was only 2 rows ago.  This has got to be one of the slowest moving projects for me, however I know it will be worth it, because it really does look nice!

No huge correction needed for the body really it all worked up great and looks good so far, my only problem was with the arms being too big, but i should have expected it I'm making the small and i really need an extra small.

I'm doing Starsky with Lamb's Pride Bulky in aubergine, and I got gauge on the first try with #10 needles.  This is a fast knit, so with any luck I will finish the sweater before my Attention Deficit Disorder kicks in (i.e. the next Knitty comes out with 3 things I Must Knit Now).  It really isn't as difficult as the rating makes it sound, so if you're thinking it may be over your head you may be pleasantly suprised.

Scarlet:

Would you mind sharing how you worked out a sleeve pattern to correspond with the size s?
