A tape measurer, a yarn (sewing) needle and some stitch markers in different colors are musts!

For circulars/dpns, I think a size 7 is usually a safe bet for hats and the like, if you are just in the market to pick up one set of each.

I would completely dig the idea of a knit-a-long for this pattern in a few months also!  I can't even think about it now, but maybe by the end of the summer...?
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Remembering Honey (Interweave Sp 03)? on: May 12, 2004 07:38:25 PM
Has anyone made this yet?  I cast it on tonight so I could take it with me to jury duty tomorrow, but:

a) I don't think I'm doing the Purse Stitch correctly, or else the pattern is wrong.  I mean, it sounds pretty obvious -- "*Yo, p2tog; rep from *.  However the pattern is listed as being for over a multiple of 2 stitches.  Shouldn't it read for a multiple of 3 to make that work evenly?  Or is there something really obvious here that I am overlooking?

b) Although it seems that I am doing this pattern completely incorrectly, it sort of looks okay anyway.  I mean, I don't just think I'm being delusional...

So, anyone?  Thoughts?

I have been wondering about this as well!  Any thoughts on the program would be appreciated!

OK, I finished the back of the sweater and started the front.  I get how I am supposed to pick up the stitches from the front for the pocket -- I've done it twice with no problem.  But, note the word "twice"...every time I do it, I manage to switch up a row while picking up, so the pocket turns out uneven on the bottom.  Any tips for evenly picking up?  I was thinking perhaps of threading some scrap yarn through the row I need to pick up from, but any other tips would be much appreciated because frankly, I'm getting a bit tired of knitting the same thing over and over.

Oh, you all convinced me!  I bagged all my waiting projects for Xmas 2004 in favor of making myself this sweater in dark pink for the MC, pale green for the big stripe and pale pink for the small stripes.  So psyched!  I picked up some of the Cascade 220 when I went to Webs this afternoon.  Before I'd decided on the yarn I dragged my husband all over the warehouse, making him look at all the options of pinks and greens!  Fun!

I love the idea of using Cascade 220 for this pattern!  I hadn't thought of that!  I am going to Webs this weekend and they have Cascade 220 on sale for $4-something a skein!  Thanks for the tip!

You may want to pick up "Simply Noro," as I did when I came into a stash of Kureyon...looking quickly through it, the Agnes (cardigan) sweater would take only about 350-450 grams.  Also, there is a tank top (Zillah) you could make for wearing under suits or sweaters next winter. I really like the throw they have in the book as well, and it would require 500 grams.

Anyway, I enjoy the book and have success with the stuff I've made from it.  The hat pattern in it has been made about 100 times!

This?  Is fabulous!  I had been feeling a bit intimidated by this pattern, but your finished results are so gorgeous, color me inspired!

I am making the Union Square Poncho right now using Cascade 220 and it is really beautiful... I needed to increase the number of stitches across, but it was well worth it. 

Ooh, I was just thinking I should stop by Webs again before their anniversary sale ends and pick up some more Cascade 220!  So how many stitches did you end up casting on?  And did you use a smaller size needle as well?
