I saw this on your blog (I'm a dirty lurker, sorry) and just wanted to throw another 'awesome' into the ring.  I look like an idiot in a hat but if I didn't I would make one of these in a second.  Kudos.

It looks a bit like My So Called Scarf?

Searching for the pattern on Google also turned up this Youtube video which shows you how to work the stitch; I've often looked at the MSCS pattern but couldn't visualise how it would be done so you've done me a big favour! Cheesy

HTH, Jane.
13  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: "Under Arm" Knitter and circular needles? on: September 04, 2007 01:50:55 AM
I'm a pit-knitter too and struggled with circular needles when I first tried them.  In the end I 'taught' myself to knit continental when using circs, to be honest when I was first trying it was probably a lot slower than dropping the RH needle to wrap the yarn but with practise I got a lot faster.

I still wrap with my right hand when using straight needles and it'll probably always be my favoured method when I can use it but I'm quite a good continental 'knitter' now and my purling's getting better with each project.  It feels really strange and frustrating when you first make the switch and I got VERY annoyed when my stitches were coming out twisted before I realised I was wrapping the yarn in the wrong direction  Embarrassed but I got there in the end and I'm glad I perservered, it opens up a heap of new patterns when you can learn a new skill.

Best of luck!

What about Sahara?

1000yds should be enough for either the sleeveless or short sleeved versions in any size up to 3XL and if you're lucky enough to be an XS or S you should have enough for the longsleeved version too.

this person has 157 patterns (some free, some for sale) sorted by yardage (small to large) for triangular shawls on her blog


That's FANTASTIC site, such a smart idea, I will definitely be bookmarking this one.  Many thanks, QoT, for the link Smiley
18  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Anyone know whereI can find really good quality but VERY CHEAP knitting need on: May 10, 2007 05:15:04 AM
Knowing what I know now, if I could go back I would just buy a 100cm/40" addi turbo in each needle size as and when I needed it.  I know they're expensive but I use them for every project now and they're an absolute pleasure to knit with.

[just to add I'm in the UK and we don't really get interchangeable sets here, but from what I have seen of KP Options they look ace]

Done!  Pics to follow when I'm not so bloated (Me? Vain? Damn right), I'm really pleased with this one though, it's worked out exactly as I was hoping

Lovely FOs Cheesy  Violet218, I love the green of yours, very zesty!

I want to knit this eventually, but I don't know if I should put buttons on it or not...opinions?

I didn't add anything in the way of closures to mine, mainly because I tend to wear hoodies undone anyways, but just sometimes if it's windy I'd like to be able to keep the chill out a bit more, IYKWIM!

It's still my absolute favourite knit, ever, ever though Cheesy
