1  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Re: "Sweater of Many Buttons" Knitalong! on: September 07, 2006 03:09:24 AM
I've started this as well using some merino chunky like in the pattern.  I only had some odd colours so I'm having a go at some stripes, I'm not sure if I like it all that much yet, but it's a learning curve since I've never knitted with more than one colour before.  I'll try to post a progress pic after the weekend Smiley

i agree - it's beautiful!  I really liked that pattern but dismissed it due to my daughter being at the top end of the age range, although she is small.  I too would be interested to know if you adapted the pattern.

wow - I love it!  Can I ask a really daft  question ?  Grin  When you say 9 balls of Debbie Bliss Merino, do you mean 9 x 50g balls?  I've got some small cones of DB merino chunky (got cheap at a mill) and was just wondering if I might have enough to do this (although, might have to be stripy!!).

I saw these while browsing the crafster forum (always dangerous!) and just fell in love with them.  They are so cool!!  Anyway, this was my first attempt with dpns and knitting circular.  I thought the pattern was fine except with the lace pattern it said to purl all even rows but I assumed you meant knit them since it was in the round.  That's what I did anyway!

Onto the pics

(I know not quite finished yet!)

and in action  Wink

you can probably tell I did them a bit shorter, they stop just before my elbow.  I absolutely love them!

So thank you so much for sharing the pattern and the idea, really appreciate it.  And yay to finishing stuff!!

Hiya everyone.

I actually started the minisweater way back last year, but after nearly finishing it I convinced myself that the armholes were too small and that I was too fat to wear it..  So it sat unloved in my knitting basket.  Aww.  Anyhow, finally picked it up again and vowed to finish it and have just done so.  Really proud of it and have worn it loads already!

Ok first try at some pics:

pic of me looked much better on my mobile phone!

I made it out of some Debbie Bliss Merino chunky that I managed to get really cheap.  I think I had about 350g of the stuff and paid 3.50 (might be wrong though, it *was* a year ago!!!)  I was going to make a tie and haven't yet.  Need to find something I like as I didn't like the i-cord I made.

Anyway, hope you all like it.

first post here, although have been a reader for sme time.  I'd love to join in the Starsky KAL!  I love it and I think I have just the right yarn for it.  Need to swatch it and see if I have the right needles but apart from that I'm in!
