How much was shipping to the US of the Phildar book? I cannot find the shipping cost on their site. Thx.

Great project. I would use it for my knitting projects. In fact, I hope to make one in fabric left over from my pillows for my family room. That way my current WIP will be in a nice basket that matches my room. Thanks for the great idea.

I feel like I've knitted like a fiend for a month, so I'm in awe of those who do this in a few weeks or less. I've finished the two-colored I-cord, which I'm happy with in the end, and I'm onto the sleeves. The longer the World Series goes, the sooner this project will finally be complete.

Like everyone else, I love it too. It's a great, simple design with colors that are fun for a baby or adult. Thanks for sharing.

Such a happy, fun project. I'm putting this on my to-learn list.

The color shading among the blues and purples is gorgeous. Great job!

i did the i-cord on the needles specified, and it worked out really well - didn't bunch up, made a great edge.

One of my knitting group members has made this and I thought I'd pass on this;

when she blocked it the i-cord edging was bunching up and not as large in diameter as the knitted circle - she tried to ease it with blocking and the i-cord snapped. [gah!]

It is also on the naughty step but I thought I'd mention it as she must have significantly changed her gauge for the i-cord so... knit loose as poss for the i-cord!! I may use bigger needles.

This is a photo of my current I-cord status. I started mine last night on 10's (didn't have 9's). It seemed too loose, long, and loopy. I then went to 8's (still didn't have 9's). I thought the finish was nicer, but still a little more loopy than the nice, neat, tight spiral I'm hoping for. I was planning to rip it out tonight, and start over with 10 rows for each I-cord instead of 12. I'm aware that I need to stretch my round a little to be sure the I-cord isn't making the main body bunch. But is it the great wisdom of the knitting craftsters that it is better for it to be a little loopy because blocking will stretch the sweater, but not the I-cord? Or, in other words, should I rip it out or just keep going as is? The Red Sox are making a last ditch effort tonight, which is always good for 3 hours of knitting.

**Special thanks to my 13-year-old son for taking the photo and uploading it for me while I was making dinner.

Your adorable daughter and those great outfits are too much. You have a great eye and talent to carry your vision through.

Holy crap, I finished the body. In three days.

It remains to see if I finish the sleeves, like, tomorrow, or if it will lay there mocking me for weeks.

Three days -- wow! I knitted pretty steadily (well, steadily for me) for four weeks to finish the body. (It was interrupted briefly by a sock knit.) Please hope that the Red Sox come back against Cleveland; more baseball means the project will get done quicker.

I don't know how to do I-cord trim, but I'm taking a knitting class to broaden my skills and off to learn this a.m.!!

Melladh: Yours is looking great. Your pinwheel is more pronounced than mine, which looks terrific. Maybe it's the yarn choice. My smallest circle also has a little hump to it. I'm thinking that it's because I knit tighter on my DPNs than my circs. (I've since learned the magic loop and will never go back.) I'm hoping that blocking will flatten it.

If the Red Sox stay in it, I should have a finished product within the week. If not, it may take a little longer.

Thanks for all the support and advice on the sleeves. I'm so glad I found this knitalong.

It looks great, and it is even better because it is like a little version of what a fun sweater for an adult would look like. Keep knitting those people sweaters!
