81  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Cashmerino...What to do with it?? on: January 01, 2006 09:12:55 AM
I was just about to knit Cleaves, Cry  is it really that bad?

Well, I don't know if it was just me, but I read on the forums that lots of people had trouble with it...

I looooved the look of it, so quirky and cosy, but, I made size medium, and my gauge was fine when I checked it, but it turned out about a foot bigger than I wanted it, and kept slipping down to my hips...

Maybe you'd have more luck though!   Cry

I'll go quite far...

All the knitting shops anywhere near where I live only sell plasticy, polyester yarns that I despise, so if I want anything decent I have to order online or travel.   Roll Eyes

But I'm travelling 3 hours train ride to London next week so I can go here:  http://www.loop.gb.com/   Grin  Although I am staying with a friend for a few days too, so I guess it's not just for the shop.  lol 

83  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Cashmerino...What to do with it?? on: January 01, 2006 07:46:04 AM
Hi, by the way!  I'm new.  hehe

This morning, I finished knitting Cleaves (the very odd shrug type thing) from the archives of Knitty, which, of course (should have listened to other people!) turned out as a huge disaster.  So I just frogged it... 

But now I have 5, 100g balls of superchunky cashmerino (reeeally cheap bargain off ebay cos it was the last in a dye lot) to use up.  Which works out as about 410 yards, I think. 
Anyone have any ideas on what to make??  Cos it's not really enough for a sweater I don't think, and I don't know.  I don't really want to make a scarf unless it's a really gorgeous one. 

So help would be amazing!!   Huh
