Makes me wish I could knit Cry. Im a bf mama too, and it would be great for winter! Amy

there's a sewn poncho in the latest issue of Bust. Seems pretty easy, although I don't sew, so I'm not sure.  Maybe you could try that. Wish I could sew!

I do, and my super sweet LYS-owner, Patricia. helped me make sure I wasn't twisted for the join.
And when I showed her that I still had a twist a few inches in, she was puzzled as well!
So I'm thinking a longer connector will help, so the Loop isn't so bunched up and I can be more careful. I'll use the extenders in the Denise kit.

i'm still reading, too! that looks GREAT, 615bride! You can see the detail even better than the original photo with the pattern.
You have inspired me to re-start the loop for, um, the FOURTH time. I just can't seem to keep it from twisting. This last time, I was POSITIVE the stitches were not twisted when i joined and started the second row. So the twist happened sometime after that, I guess. I was thinking I  may need to order a longer connector from Denise... Any suggestions?

I'm using the Gedrifra Cicco.
I found it on woolieewe.com, but that was months ago, so I don't know if they have it anymore.

I'm using my new Denis Interchangables, largest size being 15.
After a gauge swatch and some sort of crazy algebra I can't remember at the moment, I came up with casting on 184 (!) stitches instead of 110.

I've had to rip out twice, because I am having a hard time keeping the stitches straight. I, too, had a Paris Mobius. Twice. Come to think of it, I should have just keep it that way - since I just saw a mobius-style capelet thing at anthropologie. I wonder if I kept going what it would have looked like... Has anyone done this on purpose?

Anyway, I slipped my 184 stiitch mobius strip on before I ripped it out last time and it seemed to fit ok. Maybe just a little drape-y...  if that helps anyone!

Any tips on keeping the stitches untwisted once I connect and start to purl the 2nd row?
I'm a total beginner knitter AND this is my first time using circulars.

I don't know if he is an "old-fashioned cobbler" and he's in hudson, not bergen county - but when I need my shoes repaired I bring them to "Giovanni d'Italia" in Hoboken... can't remember the exact address, it's been awhile... but that's the name, if it helps any...
