1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Forest Canopy Triangle Scarf on: November 27, 2007 02:54:46 PM
This shawl was my travel knitting on a recent trip to Seattle:

Pattern:  Forest Canopy Shoulder Shawl by Susan Lawrence
link:  http://knittingasfastasican.com/forest-canopy-shoulder-shawl/

Yarn:  I used Artfibers Ming which is a very soft merino/silk blend.

I really enjoyed this project!  The pattern was really easy (it would be a great first shawl or even first lace project!) but also completely engaging so much so that I wasn't even bothered when our flight was delayed!  Definitely a first for me!

I got my yarn today!  I'm so excited!  I'm in the middle of another sweater but I think I might cheat and cast-on this one too. 
I was looking at the posts on Ravelry about this sweater and I saw a couple references to a small error in the pattern. 

This is the correction that was posted:
In row 37, insert a p2 before 2k-1p-2kLC.

I hear you on the magazine thing.  I hate how hard they are to store, catalog, etc.  But I find the Interweaves to be indispensable.  Even if I don't like any of the patterns in there when the magazine first comes out I always end up making at least one of the patterns later once I've seen other people's versions.  Darn you Interweave and your pretty patterns!

Yesterday we got our first snow of the season and I finished a new winter sweater!

Pattern: Notre Dame de Grace by Veronik Avery from the Summer 07 Interweave Knits
Yarn:  Cascade D'Oro (50% wool/50% alpaca)

I love how big and cozy this sweater turned out!  I don't think I will take it off until spring!

I ordered my yarn and pattern!  I'm going to use Peace Fleece worsted in Hemlock for this sweater because I've been wanting to try it.
Hopefully I'll start sometime this week. 
I think I'm going to make this my sweater for NaKniSweMo!

I haven't tried converting a raglan to set-in sleeves, this will be my first try.  I'm using the book, "Knitting From the Top" by Barbara Walker as my instruction manual.  She has directions for knitting set-in sleeves from the top down.  I probably won't be able to figure it out without the book and pattern in front of me so I will be working it out as I go.

Ooh, I'm glad you found a picture of the front!  The front pockets are so cute!
I'm also glad you pointed out that it is a raglan as I can't wear raglans at all (I have narrow shoulders and large boobs which are exacerbated by the raglan lines).  But I have no qualms about adjusting the pattern to have set-in sleeves.  I think this one is a go!  I'm going to order the pattern today or tomorrow!

That's really cute!  I saw the pattern on Webs the other day and I didn't realize it was a cardigan!  I think I'll pick this pattern up when I do my next Webs order, in the meantime, keep us posted on your progress!

have you tried knitting from alternating skeins, alligator?  that can help to break up pooling and such, if you switch skeins every two or four rows.

Yeah, I knit from 2 skeins from the start.  I kept messing with knitting 1 or 2 rows of each skein to break up the pooling but it didn't really work.  And I found that I was thinking and worrying a lot about that which wasn't really fun for me.  This is a good yarn, it's just not for me I think.  Though, I do think it would be really pretty as Roam.  I'm just maybe sick of looking at it.  If I still have it in a couple months I might try it with Roam because it does look nice in seed stitch.

I've definitely decided to rip but I think I might try to swap/sell the yarn instead of making Roam.  I don't think a variegated sweater is really my style after all.

Sleeves are so hard to finish!  The sweater I am working on now I knit the sleeves first and then moved on to the body.  That's been working out really well.
