1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: My first sweater! on: November 13, 2006 11:29:56 AM

No problems with button holes that i can remember. Small can be good because i was forced you use pretty big buttons. If yours are coming out small, i suspect you are knitting through the back loop instead of the front loop (or vice versa?) on the yarned over stich, thereby twisting the stitches. Just a guess

I'm a fool. I checked with a knitting mentor and apparently I was doing it right. The full effect takes a few inches to reveal itself. Forgive me for the false alarm...

I just made this one: http://www.cosmicpluto.com/blog/?page_id=397

If I were to do it again, I would use a smaller needle for the neck trim and put in fewer buttonholes...

Ah yes, but I believe brown sheep cotton fleece is a smaller gauge...

I'm making Knitty's "T Twist Tee" with this yarn right now and I like it. I googled the yarn before I bought it and read other positive reviews of it which I'm having trouble finding to share here. I don't have that much experience knitting with cotton to compare it to, but so far this yarn looks and feels great. The color I picked is the reddish "cake" one, which is pretty much burgandy in person. Basically what I expected.

I think that means knit through front and back loops

[color=green]Despite some mixed reviews, I've decided to try making this tee. I hope it doesn't turn out to be too maternity looking. I will definitely post pics if it works out (or if it doesn't)![/color]

that is insanely nice. It barely looks knitted even, guess that's the magic of felting. really, really cool.

wow, I'm really amazed that this could be simple, quick and easy. I never would have thought that before seeing your pattern. I'm totally intrigued!  Shocked   It's like the perfect summer project....

Thanks!!! To answer razzmcspazz's question I worked on this sweater for two months on and off. It definitely took longer than I thought because for some reason I thought I was in the home stretch once I started the sleaves but closer to half way. Regarding the buttons, CosmicPluto's pattern called for that many buttonholes but I would do less if were to make it again.
