I have finished the back and two fronts, and started on the sleeve!  But sadly this morning, I discovered that I have lost one of my needles -- must get more at my LYS tonight!

Check out pix at my blog:  http://bluecanary.typepad.com/

I'm starting my gryffindor scarves soon -- one for me and one for hubby -- want to finish in time for the GoF premiere!

Finished the back yesterday!  It's hard on my hands but looks so cute!  I will post pix soon.  I am thinking of blocking to the right dimensions before assembly, since it needs to stretch out quite a bit.  Anyone have an opinion on this?

Well I picked up Trellis again after a busy summer.  I now have (only) 3 knitting projects going simultaneously, which is feeling good:

1. Focus knitting:  I am working on developing patterns for knitted veggie baby rattles/toys.  This is highly focused knitting, can't do much else at the same time, and taking pattern notes as I go.

2. Commute knitting: Completely brainless portable knitting.  Finishing my mom's Clapotis.

3. TV knitting -- interesting knitting -- too hard to do commuting, but suitable for TV and movie watching.  Yay!  Trellis!

I am almost up to the first armhole decreases on the back.  It is tight tight tight knitting and hard on my hands, but I love the magic of making cables appear out of nowhere.  I am also doing well cabling without a cable needle, makes this project fun.

Hello yarnfarmer!

The smaller size in the book is a little big for a newborn and fit my son best at about 4 months old.  I have not test knitted the larger size (the pattern editor did the larger size), so I can't vouch for it, but I think for a 12-month-old you should do the larger.  I must say though that the wool-cotton has stretched quite a bit and the hat probably still fits my son now at 8-months.  If you want to do it as a 12 and up hat do the larger size.  If you want it to work for the fall I am sure the smaller size would be fine.

Well I haven't done the fronts yet myself, but reading through the pattern, it looks like -- yes, you start with reverse stockinette (purling on the right side), then the chart, then the seed stitch after the chart.  On the photo, it looks like the seed stitch border goes all up the front edge.  And then the back side would be seed stitch, pattern, then knits (regular stockinette)...
10  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Some progress! on: June 10, 2005 07:40:40 AM
Well I got through the first half of the chart(s) on the back.  This thing is definitely tight and hurting my hands a bit, so I will need to alternate with the Clapotis I am working on for my mom.  This is definitely a high-concentration project (no commuter knitting).  I love the way the cables look though!
