1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: Aran Felted Hot Water Bottle on: May 09, 2007 06:26:46 AM
hey, thanks!  i haven't thought about this project in a long time, but i actually did use the bottle quite a bit this past winter.  the felted fabric really does keep it hot!

This is so beautifully gorgeous.
Ah I want to make it for my mummy for mother's day but I won't finish in time Sad

Phhheeeew!  Calla is finally finished.  More photos and details galore at Fig & Plum.

help, knitters-along!  does anyone have any insight into working the armhole decreases without unduly cutting into the cable pattern?  i've frogged twice now and i'm stumped!   i've described the problem in detail here, on my blog.

Here's my progress so far.  I did everything up to the armhole split in the round, then am working one side at a time for the top:

I made a teeny mistake in the center panel of cabling (look between the 4th and 5th diamonds from the bottom), but I think I'm going to leave it.  The finish line is in sight!

I think that it is really cool how long did it take you to do it

thanks!  it took about a month and a half to make, but part of that was over my winter vacation.  i have heard tell of people working through one ball of silk garden per day, so though i'm not sure what kind of stamina-enhancing drugs they're taking, i guess you could theoretically do it in under 2 weeks.  the entrelac is barely more demanding than basic stockinette...

thanks everyone!  :-)

and rockstr, i'm glad you like the blog.  you should give eleanor a try!  it's a splurge, but you can find deals on kureyon and silk garden on eBay.  and entrelac is actually much easier than it looks!

hi all!  so glad to discover this knitalong!  here's my progress so far.  this is about 1 ball's-worth of DB Cathay:

(not actually a b&w shot - just grey yarn on a grey day!)

i'm converting the pattern to be done in the round.  when it comes time for armhole shaping, i'll split off the two halves and work them individually.  can't wait to see everyone's progress!

Hi all, there's an error in the pattern for XS.  Here's Saun's response:

Hi Jessica, 

I apologize for the error.  You should cast on 86sts for the XS but the line should read (correction in red):

Next RS row: k10[12,12,12,12,12,12], p2tog, yo, k3[3,3,3,5,5,7] , work chart 1, k2[2,4,6,8,10,12], work chart 2, k2[2,4,6,8,10,12], work chart 1, k3[3,3,3,5,5,7] , yo, p2tog, k10[12,12,12,12,12,12]. On next and all WS rows, work stitches as they lay, purling yarn-overs. (This means that if the stitch was knit on the RS, then you will purl on WS. If purl on RS, then knit on WS.)

Please let me know if you have any other problems or questions.

Hi everyone!  I started Calla today.

I'm making the XS size, which calls for a CO of 86 stitches. The ribbing is done, so far, so good. But I can only make the first pattern row (second paragraph under "Front / Back") add up to 82 stitches, both in knitting it and trying to add up the numbers in the pattern. Am I screwing something up, or might there be a typo in the pattern? Is anyone out there good at spotting this stuff?

I e-mailed Saun, but hardly expect her to e-mail right back on a Saturday morning. It doesn't seem like anyone else in blogland is working on Calla just yet, so I thought I'd put this pickle out there for you.  Is anyone else making the XS?  Can anyone provide any insight here?

After three months, my Jaywalkers are finally complete!  I used Knitpicks Color Your Own, Kool-Aid Dyed to be self-striping.  More pictures, notes, and details on Fig and Plum.
