Thanks guys!  I should be done with it in a few days (just knitting some during the Olympics) and I'll toss it through the machine a few times.

Thanks -- that's what I was hoping for.  Being acrylic, it's not going to shrink much if I wash it a few times, is it?

I'm working on Knitty's Tychus (and BOY am I a tight knitter!!), and have finished one wedge.  I'm loving the pattern and how it looks, however not crazy about the yarn (even if it gives me an opportunity to stash bust!).

Is there anything I can do to the hat when completed to make it softer?  I think I read on another thread quite a while ago that a few washes softens up the yarn.  Anyone have any suggestions?

Are you seeing this problem generally on the knit rows, or on the row where you're making the cable twist?

I'm seeing the problem on ever row.  whenever I get done with a knit stitch and move my yarn to purl, there's a gap between those stitches.  It's strange.

when you change from a knit st to a purl st, simply wrap your yarn the other way on the purl st. this will tighten it up.

This (although kinda akward for me) worked!  When I move to purl, I wrap the first purl stitch clockwise, and continue the other purl stitches counter-clockwise.  Makes that stitch a little difficult to knit on the next row, but I'm working through it.  The tension is much more even - there isn't a gap any more.  Thanks skwirel!

You know it's past midnight when...
I thought I read that you actually were pregnant and breaking up with the father. Oops!

Oh Goddess no!   Cheesy  Not pregnant, just breaking up with the beau.  Ha!  Funny.

Hmmm... pic still looks fine to me kimski - there are more pics on my blog if you check there.

I'm working on cables right now - and having a great time doing it!  But I've found some inconsistancies with my tension.  When I move from a knit to a purl, it's not very tight.  Gently pulling the fabric will show bars where the stitches are -- it's kinda of loose.  Moving from a purl to a knit, I don't have that problem.  My tension is tight, I can't pull at the fabric and see the bars or gabs.

So the question is: how can I get a tighter tension when moving from knit to purl stitches?

Yes, I'm in love with Landscape yarn too -- such fabulous colorways and a great yarn to work with.  I made little tags for the gifts that said "Even Blue looks pretty in pink".  So fitting, isn't it?

I checked your blog - I always heard that if you dream you're pregnant, it means you're about to embark on a new creative endeavor or life-changing project.

I went to a couple other sites and found similar meanings like you said uplate6674.  I think that's a good thing - it is my current boyfriend that was the father of the baby, and we're just about ready to break up.  I can't say it's life-changing, but it's a life change.  So I'm going to go with that!

Oh yeah, and I updated my blog with a direct link where y'all can purchase your very own Blue.  PLEASE NOTE: Remember what Blue is before clicking the link, and to any of you younger Craftsters out there, I am NOT responsible if you get into trouble for clicking on the link.  (heh - just absolved myself of responsibility).

Yup, just had to make some up for x-mas presents for my girlfriends this year.  How can you beat quick and easy knits?

Here's a shot of one on my bar (the one on it's side is empty -- poor cozy):

More details on my blog - happy new year everyone!

Very, very cool.  I need to get all of my other projects done so I can start my own poster boy project!
