Love this! Where did you find the pattern for this? I'm always looking for more to do with my knifty knitter and I have two small dogs myself! Perfect!

Rottie Mom-
Thanks for the 'in the round' tip... I heard something like that about the extra stitch but didn't remember what it was.

I'm hoping that weird seam will go away too once it gets blocked... I suspect it might be my gigantic stitch marker I'm using because I experimented and moved the stitch marker over by one and now there's a bit of a new seam starting there instead (haha).

Do you know of any articles/sites that give a little more in-depth details about how to close up that armpit seam? I know you mentioned just leaving extra long tail to seam it up, but I'm worried that this time it will look messy (I did this with that last project, but it was all black so you can't really see any mistakes, hah).

Yes, using Saucy in teal, love love love it! Minus the difficulty in getting the knit2tog to happen during the lacing (other than that, it's been knitting up so well).

Last Q for you: do you think the armholes are too small to just use a circular needle (one) and knit in the round? It's calling for DPN in a size I don't have... I don't mind buying them, but just wondering if it would be possible to use one circular that I already have instead. Smiley

Pics of your progress? I already am planning my next Green Gable, trying to find more great yarn for it, haahah!

Here's mine, I'm about 6 rows from being done with Part C (before you separate the sleeves).

My only gripe is that there is definitely a seam that I can't seem to get rid of where I've joined... even this many rows up!! I don't know why this is happening (I pull extra tight when I cross over for each new round). Any advice?

haha, no I DEFINITELY know who Anne of Green Gables is, I did read all the books and watched the movies too, and yes, Gilbert was very dreamy, haha.  Grin

But I was trying to figure out what the connection is between the knit piece and the series... like did Anna wear something similar to this?! Just curious. Or I guess Zephyr just liked the series and named this knit after it? That's what I was wondering (not what Anne of Green Gables was, LOL!)

Can't wait to see everyone's progress and yarn choice!

Congrats! You did a great job!!
26  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: Why Blocking is Good on: December 09, 2007 06:18:20 PM
Agreed! Blocking really makes the project look so much more 'finished'... adds a crispier touch to it!

Thank you!

I got all excited that this was a craft related to Anne of Green Gables! Sad

Really?! I didn't know that... what's the story behind the name?

I started mine late last week, I'm about 5 rows until I split the sleeves, hurrah! I'm knitting it in 100% mercerized cotton, it was really tough to do the K2tog's because the yarn was so stiff... I had to bring it all the way to the very tip of my needles to get the stitches off. But I'm done with that part, and it looks good! Will post pics soon of my progress.

29  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Half-A-Cardi and a few other projects: completed! on: December 06, 2007 08:07:51 PM

I finished my half-a-cardi project in record time... this was my first knit garment and first time trying out seamless knitting. I think it turned out pretty good, two things I would improve would be to make the cardigan a little longer and to figure out some kind of decreasing or ribbing to snug up the bottom to my back (kinda sticks out).

My other pic is a baby cardigan and hat set I made for my friend's baby shower. I knit this in pieces and then sewed it all together... the hat was made on a knifty knitter loom.

On to the next project!
30  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Question: how much yarn to buy? on: December 06, 2007 04:31:45 PM
just thought I would throw this one out there... whenever I'm shopping and see yarn I like (without a specific project in mind), I always wonder/worry if I'm going to have enough for any future project (dye lot is the main concern I guess).

So my question is, when you go shopping and and randomly pick up yarn, how much do you buy? I guess it would be based more off of yardage since all skeins vary.
