good choice :-)

I love this pattern (but I think if I ever get around to it, I'll skip the shoulder do-flingies.   I've got more of a classic, streamlined look.)  It's great to be able to see how it looks on people other than the model -- and it seems to be an all-round winner!

I FINALLY got gauge on US 7's!  That took forever.  I know what I'll be doing all weekend!  I also ended up ordering an extra skein of the KnitPicks Elegance when i ordered my KnitPicks Options needle set (which I love already).  Fortunately, the extra skein they sent is from the same dye lot. 
YAY!  Grin

Here is my finished Ms. Marigold. I'm going to make two more one in black and another in green. Both with out the ruffles. This is such a quick and easy pattern.

Question: Do you really need the 32" circulars for this pattern or could you use smaller ones? I keep considering buying this pattern but can't justify buying new needles if I can just use the ones I already have...

I think I used smaller than 32s. Maybe even 24s?? Could that be right? Maybe 29s.
Sorry I'm not much help, but I think you could do it. You can start it, anyway, because you don't connect in the round for several inches. If you join and find that it's too much, you could always run out then.

I'm running out of yarn!  I bought 3 balls of the suggested Knitpicks Elegance and I'm halfway thru the ball and I'm 2 inches away from the ribbing on the body.  I'm knitting the smallest size.  Does anyone think I will be able to finish or will I have to order a new ball of yarn? 

Thanks!

Nope, you can use the needles you already have. I think the 32" is reccomended because of alllll the stitches you need to pick up around the neckline. It's possible to use a smaller needle (I did) as long as you're comfortable with the stitches scrunched up pretty tight (for eight rows it's really no problem)

Anyway...hey guys! I'm a bad knitalonger  *hands head in shame* Sad I finished Ms. Marigold about three weeks ago but hadn't had the chance to take pictures of it until recently.

I've worn this to school a few times and love it!  Although my favorite part has to be the color. Frog tree pima silk = faaaaabulous shades, but a little splitty. It was worth it, though.  Smiley More info on the blog.

I love this pattern but now that it's fall here (and getting pretty chilly) I'm thinking of adding some 3/4 sleeves and putting the ruffle on the end of the sleeve.  I've just gotten to the point where I think I could attempt some pattern modifications, would this be difficult to do, do you think?  I'm thinking of using the Cascade Pima Silk...

For all of you who've gotten to the part where you CO 10 sts and join the round, what cast on method did you use?
I just broke the yarn I was working with and then CO with a new strand, but surely there is a better way.
Also, anyone who made the size S or XS- are you finding that the 32" circulars are a little too long for knitting in the round?  I'm considering switching to a shorter cable.

I used the backwards-loop cast-on (which is just as easy as it sounds Smiley)
