what do you mean when you say ""Break CC""..do you mean like bind up the stitches...or like let go of the colour and pick up a new one?

When shall I put in the fair isle pattern of spoil rotten?

Im very confused at the part:

Break CC
Row 1   With MC, K1 M1, K to last 2 sts, M1 K1
Row 2   Purl

Repeat these two rows 9 times (80 sts)
Next row   Knit
Next row    Purl

Do I do ROW 1 & 2 ...then begin row one on the chart? Or do I do ROW 1 & 2 nine times then do the chart?

Hey Melissa,

I'm sorry I haven't replied to your questions!  We just moved into our new house and I've probably not logged in for over two months.  I hope you haven't given up on waiting!

Break CC - You can break the CC (contrasting colour used on the collar) leaving a 6 inch tail.  When you're done the sweater you can secure all the ends or if you want, secure them as you go.  You'll pick up the MC (main colour) and continue with that

On my sweater I started the 'spoilt rotten' about 5 rows or so after i finished the harness/leash hole.  That would be about row 7 in the section 'shape leg openings.  Alternately you could cross stitch or embroider it on after you've finished.

I hope that helps.  I'll check back soon to see if you've got anymore questions.

Again, I'm really sorry it took me so long to reply!

I love Sophie's new wardrobe - you really did an excellent job!  Now all she needs are some winter boots to keep her little paws warm and dry.  Wink

My wee Benjamin also needs to wear sweaters and jackets to keep warm in the cold winter months.  It's so much fun working on the tiny clothes and they are way faster to finish that ones my size.

I can't wait to see Sophie's spring wardrobe...

Relish are you done your sweater yet?  I'd love to see the finished product. 

Maybe Saimon will model it for us??   Wink

risks of fiberglass in working with this yarn.) Available in three widths: 1/69" (3050 ypp), 1/32" (1400 ypp) and 1/23" (1000 ypp).

toothy,  which width did you use?  if you orderred it again, would you order a wider or narrower material??

I love the sweater!  You did a spectacular job.

I too would like to know where to get reflective yarn as I am a dog owner and a hiker... dating a biker!   Cheesy

My little pup has some reflective straps on his boots but they are hard to see when he's out in the back yard with snow up to his belly.  If his coat was reflective too... I'd be sure to never lose sight of him when he's frolicking in the snow.

10  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Perfect gift for the bride & groom to be on: January 27, 2007 12:19:04 PM
I was a lucky girl and got a new embroidery machine for my birthday last November.  I was excited to play with my new toy and with Christmas just around the corner I had a ton of ideas for gifts.  

My sister got engaged just recently so i sought out to think of the perfect bride & groom gift for the happy couple.  This is what I came up with...

Coordinating Bride & Groom bathrobes and matching handtowels.  Who doesn't love a comfy bathrobe in these cold winter months?!  

I didn't have enough time to make the robes from scratch so I purchased plain brown & beige robes from my local supermarket (i know... grocery stores carry everything now!) and embroiderred the words across the back.  For a little more personal touch I added their wedding date on the front pocket.  

What a success!  My sister shed a few happy tears when they opened their gifts and later told me it was the most thoughtful present she has ever received.  

Here's the happy couple showing off their robes.

And a close up of the pocket.

Now I've put my self in quite a pickle... how am I going to top this for their wedding gift!   Wink
