Carinbrat it looks just gorgeous on you! You've rekindled my interest in this pattern!!!

I do have a question though, do you happen to know how many metres/yards per ball of the alpaca you used for this?

Thanks so much Smiley

darlingbud- your Blooming Cactus yarn is just gorgeous! So much for dye experiments gone wrong hey? You rocked that yarn! It would be amazing to see it knitted up into something special. I've tried knitting with a yarn similar to this and it turned out beautifully (well I think so!) Here's a link to the photo just incase you're interested http://farm1.static.flickr.com/74/190393216_f96bcd84ed.jpg?v=0 Great job- I can't wait to see what you will do next Smiley
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Who else owns Jennie Atkinson's Beads, buttons and lace book? I need your help! on: March 03, 2007 04:41:27 AM
I just received this book in the mail, and I love it!

But in my copy on pg 25 where the lace chart and key appear for the pattern Butterfly, the key is completely empty!!! By this I mean, the key is there but the little squares in it are empty and give no indication of what the symbols in the lace chart are.

Am I going mad? The lace chart is not colour-coded and nor is the key, so that's not it. The lace pattern for the main part of the pattern is not elaborated row by row in the pattern itself, so that's not it. The key should be the key, right?! Is there something I don't know about the book? I can't find the symbols on any other page... am I supposed to communicate psychically with Jennie Atkinson as I knit my butterfly, and she'll tell me what the symbols in the lace chart are as I go along??

If you own this book, please help me out by turning to pg 25 to see if your copy has a complete key. If it does I need to return my copy and get a replacement (I've contacted the seller, Angel Yarns UK but they haven't replied to me). If it doesn't, and the key is supposed to be empty can someone please take a little time to explain what I'm missing- it could be that I'm being a complete idiot by missing something really simple! I'd be very grateful for any help on this.

Thanks everyone!!!

Wow what a bargain! I love knitting with Cleckheaton, and you got such a beautiful shade too- score! The cardy is just gorgeous, you did a fantastic job and it looks amazing on you. I think you've just added the pattern to my 'to do' list. I hope you enjoy wearing it!

Hi everyone!
I'd love to make the shorter vest version, however I have the pattern in the Jennie Atkinson book which is only for the dress version. I'm not feeling confident in my abilities to alter the pattern to be shorter... does anyone have any advice on resizing this? Or do you think I should just buy the Rowan 37 magazine where the vest version was printed? I want to use RKH for this which is why I don't want to screw up length and shaping because I don't want to frog parts and ruin the yarn!

ha! *lightbulb moment* thank goodness I asked for your advice and didn't just go and do it the way I had first read it. 

Thanks very much knittin fiasco, you just saved my pretty cardigan from ruin Smiley
10  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Phildar decreasing advice on: February 27, 2007 12:47:15 AM

So I'm knitting up a lovely phildar cardigan from one of the tendances books and although confused at first about how to read the patterns, all the q&a on here and around on blogs has helped me out a great deal- thanks everyone!!!

It's going fine but I'd just find some advice helpful. I'm up to a sentence that says "2 sts from each edge of foll 8th rows, sgl dec 3 times".

Now I know that it's asking me to dec 1 st 3x on each edge of the row... but it's mentioned nothing about spreading the decs along the row evenly, and when Phildar want you to do that, they write it like that! So it's basically telling me to dec 3 sts at each end, all in one row...

Here's the question: isn't that a little odd, shaping wise I mean? 3 decs on each side... that's going to drastically pinch in that one row don't you think? I'll knit it like that and see how it looks but what would anyone else do? Maybe someone who has more experience knitting phildar could just say- "oh that seems totally normal!" and then I'd stop worrying!

Thanks anyone Smiley
