funkyhooker I love your bag!

I started one in Paton's SWS Natural Earth that I had in my stash.  I have 2 balls, hope that is enough!  I'm about half way through it, and its going very well.  I could easily have this done in a day if I only had more time!  I can't wait to see more pics of everyone's Squatty!  I'll post mine when finished.  Roll Eyes
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Boye interchangeables vs. knitpicks options on: July 18, 2007 07:36:27 PM
I have the Boye set and a few pairs of the Knit Picks options.  I have mixed feelings on both.

I think I have only had the Boye unscrew once or twice, and that was only when I was too lazy to use the key thingie to tighten it properly.  That being said, my Knit Picks needles unscrew almost everytime I use them, even if I use the key thing to tighten them properly.

The Boye cords don't flex anywhere near as well as the Knit Picks cords do.  I love the Knit Picks cords because you can use them for magic loop. 

I find the Knit Picks needles are very smooth, pointy and slippery (which I like) and the Boye needles are smooth, pointy, but not near as slippery as Knit Picks.

Overall, I like the Knit Picks Options needles most, but haven't bought the kit since there aren't many small sizes  Sad and I don't use large sizes very often.  I've just bought the sizes I use most and a few different length cords and I'm satisfied.   Tongue

Oh, I also have a pair of Addi Turbos too, and I love them.

I have a Hamilton Beach convection\toaster oven.  It's awesome!  We use it all the time.  The convection option is what I love best, it cooks food in no time!  Last weekend it was very hot so instead of using the stove and making the house hotter than it already was, we put it out on the deck and I cooked 4 HUGE chicken breasts in less than 30 min!  I would definately recommend getting one.

I don't think guage and needle size really matters too much with this pattern.  Since its a top down, you can pretty much use any size needles and yarn you want and try it on as you go.  Myself, I'm using Bernat Softee Chunky, which is sort of a bulky weight and size 4 (3.5mm) needles.  I'm making the small and its turning out great so far.  I never check guage anyway  Roll Eyes  I just checked though and I have about 4 stitches\inch.

Silver Ilix is right, you can't buy Caron Simply Soft in Canada.  I am in NS, Canada and the closest I have seen is simply soft shadows? (the stuff that sort of fades like noro) at Michaels and thats it.  But you can't get the plain old cheapo simply soft.   Sad  I like Bernat Satin, its nice and soft I use it all the time, but would love to use simply soft sometime. 

Oh and knittyknitter, you can buy colored metal needles here, Michaels carries them.   Smiley

I'm cheap and using Bernat Softee Chunky in Denim Heather (light blue).  It's realllly soft!  I'll post pics when I get a little farther.  Cheesy

Ok, I'm in!  I started mine on Sunday and I'm about 1 inch away from putting the sleeves on waste yarn.  This will be my 3rd attempt at a top down.  First time I made Green Gable and it was just a bit too small so I frogged it.  Second time I made up my own, but only got a few inches in and got bored with it.  Third time should be a charm?  Cheesy
