This is fantastic!!
And I love the reuse aspect of it.  Makes me think I need to hang on to any of hubby's older shirts just in case I actually get this sewing thing licked!

This is a gorgeous sweater and looks lovely on you.

To keep the shoulders from slipping, how about a very thin I-cord that stretches from side-to-side just under the collar bone?  You could also do a think crochet chain with the same yarn. Something slight to rest across the chest, but if made slightly shorter than the full width, it will pull the sides in just a tad.

Nice knit! Smiley

supermodel, woooorrrk, covergirl, turn to the left  Cool

LOL! (Oh dear, that will be stuck in my head now)

I'm in too! I'm a newbie to this forum, but as a knitter of 1 year + my WIP list needs some attention, as does my stash (ack!)

1. Crochet blanket from Adorable Crochet for Babies
2. Crochet beach bag from Family Circle book (not sure I'll finish this, may frog it and make a shawl instead)
3. Central Park Hoodie from Knitscene Fall '06
4. Sangria handdyed socks
Felted Tote from One Skein (just started a few rows on this and may reclaim the wool for something else)
5. Crochet Hipster belt from Interweave (ages ago)

Pictures of some of these on my blog

hello everyone!

i'm doing my first sweater right now too. it's a bit boring i have to confess. i'm only about 4 inches along the back piece of this pattern:


though i couldn't get crystal palace yarn while shopping, so i got yarn that has a matching guage. i hope the guage is matching. the pattern calls for US 10 needles, and the yarn calls for US 11. i'm using the 11's and i'm doing the medium size. i hope.

also, i just noticed, that the pattern calls for 67, and i think that when i counted the needle last night, i might have 68 on there. how does that happen? it's easy to grop a stitch and have not enough on the needle, but how do you think i would have ended up with an extra and not realize i was making an increase? anyone know?

At times if you're working with yarn overs or any pattern where you have to change the position of the yarn (to the front or the back of the work) it's easy to wrap a loop over your needle, which then looks like a stitch to be worked just like any of the others....just a thought...

I'm very proud of myself. I ripped back all the way to the ribbing AGAIN, I picked up my Knitpicks options and started again. About 5 rows into the first pattern repeat, I realized that I had picked up my size 5's and NOT MY 9's, like I needed! ACK! But, I just ripped it back yet again. Now, I'm speedily up the the fourth pattern repeat and it looks great! The cables twists are a bit farther apart from each other than I'm used to, but now that I'm just keeping with it, it looks great! I was skeptical about picking brown at first, but it looks so lovely! At the rate I'm going, I'll be finished with the first sleeve by tomorrow, so I'll post some pictures.

Good for you, kpuppy! The extra effort will be worth it in the end!

I'm still here and working on this one too  Wink
Progress so far - finished the back and sleeves.
Thanks to this and other KAL's online I was able to do the short row shaping for the shoulders and will join that to the fronts with a 3-needle bind off.
I extended the back and fronts by 1 1/2", but now I wish I had knit these all together in one piece because I'm so worried that the measurements will be slightly off and making seaming that much more difficult! Roll Eyes  Won't know until I dive in I guess.
Happy knitting all!

I'm in!
I've joined other online groups similar to this one, all with the same general goals:

(a) use up a good portion of the yarn in my stash;
(b) finish or frog unfiinished projects; and
(c) be a more discerning yarn hoarder in the future so I can love ALL of my stash, and not just the yummy bits.  Grin

Here is a photo I took today after reading this thread:

Something must be done...I work part time in a local yarn store, so that discount makes the temptation VERY strong.  Not to mention all the discount sites out there, and Ebay, and yarn I buy when I'm traveling....*sigh*

Since it seems others are still hard at work on this, I'd like to join.

I'm working on the back and both sleeves at once on size 8 circulars.
The yarn is Karabella Aurora 8 in Blue #23.

Did anyone extend the length of the back, and if so, what other adjustments should be made to accomodate the additional inches?  Can I just extend the two front pieces by the same # of inches and call it good? (I intend to add about an 1 or so the sleeves as well).

Just want to be sure there isn't some math I'm missing... Undecided

These are truly gorgeous, and I LOVE that you put thought into what could really showcase hand-dyed yarn. I'm excited to CO for these!

Hello all!

I knit these as part of another KAL and love them too!
I'm posting a pic of mine in Mandalay 100% silk, Indigo Tweed.  I see plenty more in my future Smiley
