1  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Re: Knit picks Shine yarn for BBBB? on: June 27, 2005 03:02:58 PM
I'm using shine right now and it works up at a very similar gauge to Koigu.  I would recommend holding two strands together and see how the gauge comes out.  It should be pretty close, but with the BBBB, gauge isn't as important as it would be for a sweater.
Good luck!

melidomi, did you get a chance to visit Black Sheep?  It is my favorite yarn store in Salt Lake (and I love the bakery that's right next-door).  The three other yarn stores in Salt Lake are quite a bit further South, about a 20 minute drive from the downtown area for the two on 33rd and at least 40 minutes for the one on 92nd - for anyone who is interested.

I've loved this pattern for a while... maybe I will try it at some point! though do some ribbing or something at the botton, I don't like how it rolls up.

I really didn't like the idea of it rolling either and blocked like a mad woman.  After a couple washings, it still does not roll.

Okay, okay. I knit another one last night but I'll stop after this. I swear!

Great job!  I really like the use of twisted stitches.

Thank you for the compliments!
The cables are not hard.  I had not done much work with cables prior to making this sweater, mainly just swatching and practice. 
I chose this as my winter break project.  I bought the yarn during the last week of December, after finishing all my holiday gifts, and finished seaming the sweater on January 9th.  It came together so quickly because the yarn is bulky and knit on large needles.  It was a ton of fun to knit!
Here's a photo of it on that was taken at the local Stitch 'n Bitch...

I've been knitting since the summer of 2002.  I used Cascade 128, a bulky version of 220, which I found at my LYS.  Mairlyn fits well.  The only problem I've had with has been the length of the sleeves.  I have a really long torso and long arms, so I made the small size in width and followed the larger sizes for the length; everything fits well except the sleeves are still about a 1/2 inch too short.

Eliza, I love your kitty and your bed is just amazingly gorgeous. Beautiful colors and your gato looks so sweet in it.  Two and a half hours to finish--you are a knitting machine! What is your kitty's name?

Thanks for sharing!

- Miss Dottie!

Miss Dottie,
Her name is Kally and she's a talker who can't stand to be alone.  The shelter where we adopted her had named her princess.  It so fits, even before I've completely spoiled her by placing a bed, or two, in each room of the house.  The kitty pi bed is in the office, on the desk, next to the computer, where she curls up, usually with my DH sitting next to her at the computer and me curled up behind them with a book or more knitting (by the time I get home from work, I cant stand to be in front of a computer any longer). 
I wouldnt say Im a knitting machine.  Since it is knit in the round, and pretty mindless, I started it while at my mothers house watching Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and was within a few rows of binding off by the time the film finished.
Take care,

My husband and I took about a year and a half to agree on a color to paint our bedroom and finally decided on a lime-ish green entitled celery sprig.  The first time my brother stepped foot in my bedroom, he said "Oh, wow, this is, like, crazy people green... you know... like they paint the crazy hospital to keep everyone calm..."   Undecided

I finished my holiday knitting early and decided to throw one more project onto my needles... It took about two and a half hours to make, pre-felting, with Classic Elite Two Two in pink, cream, green and grey.
