Lovely top, great colour, looks fantastic on you -I love your mods, you've inspired me to try and have a go in the round too! Smiley

I sooo want to make this top but i can't find the pattern anywhere! I've tried ebay here (UK) Ebay.com, amazon, phildar website, etsy ...still no luck  Sad   if anyone sees it please would they let me know where!! thanks Smiley

I just got that Phildar Book from Little Knits, it's on sale for $5.99.

I second Littleknits!  Lots of great product, great prices and excellent service.

Equal in my love to Littleknits is Webs, www.yarn.com.  I also make a few trips out to their store every year.

Sarahsyarns.com is where I buy Zephyr.  I swear I have the DK in every color Smiley

I love this jacket and have the pattern...I have been holding off because I am thinking the twisted rib might just send me over the edge these days Grin

I have a big load of Sheffield but was thinking of using a cotton, cotton/silk blend for spring.

Yay!  I finished my L/S on Christmas night and wore it out to dinner last night and got lots of compliments!  I used Classic Al which was soft as butter whilke knitting but a tiny bit scratchy in the wearing.  But it doesn't really bother me at all.

Please don't worry about closing the hole!  It is super, super easy and you will never know that hole was ever there!

All I have left on this sweater is half a sleeve.  I did the ribbing first because it takes me a hundred years to pick up stitches...and that is only a slight exaggeration!

For some reason I didn't do a great job on this.  My stitches aren't nearly as even as usual.  I am hoping blocking evens things out nicely.

Blocking has always worked for me before when I haven't been too thrilled with my work but, for some reason, I am really doubtful about this one.

Any thoughts/experiences with this particular sweater from you all?

I used a 16" circ for my sleeves with no problem.  Even with the long sleeve I will use 16" then go down to a 12" (addi makes 12" circs) then just DPN for the very end.

I have to get a cable for my cell phone.   My job pays for the phone and they will pay for the cable, but I can't seem to get my lazy butt into the Nextel store!

As soon as I do, pictures galore!

Tara!  Looking good!

You are using Saucy, right?  Is it teal?  I have a TON of teal saucy and I amgoing to use it for a lace rib cardi from Tahki-Stacy Charles.

About your "seam" it will most like even out when you block but to avoid that when you start your first round cast on an extra stitch, slip one stitch from left needle to right, pass the extra cast on stitch over and off you go.  I don't have any wonky joining issues with that method.

I wish I could remember who to credit for that great tip!

LOL!  Grin Nothing like having all your needles filled with projects, eh? Sounds like me!

So I'm just about done now with my half-a-cardi... but I just ran into a problem. This is my first seamless garment, FYI. (thought it was good practice before starting Green Gables).

So here's the problem: I divided off the sleeves and put them on extra cables I had. Then I knit the next row with formed the sleeves... from there, I continued to knit in pattern on the body for several more inches. Now I'm heading back to pick up the sleeves on my DPNs and noticed that there is a huge gaping hole where the connection happened... almost looks like a dropped stitch since you can see several 'ladders', but I've counted and still have all the sleeve stitches on the needle, so that's not it. Ahh! Just thought you might have an idea since you obviously have knit seamless many times before.  Tongue Any suggestions on what I did wrong? Aww shoot! I am almost done!


That thing with the armpit always happens to me too.  I just leave a nice long tail when I start the sleeves and stitch those nasty ladder/holes and you would never know they were ever there.

Some folks pick up an extra stitch or two when they start the sleeves too to fill in the gaps.

No worries!  Good luck!
