Yay- I'm so excited you made my pattern! It's my first one- I'm sorry you had trouble with it. The blanket turned out beautifully. Would you mind sharing your fixes to the pattern so I can update it on my blog?

Wow- thanks, everyone! Your comments are totally making my week.

To answer someone's question- the blanket took a little over a month, but I wasn't exclusive to it until the very end when it got to crunch time.

The pattern may look complicated, but it is actually pretty darn easy. You start with a circle in the center and then just add rings around the circle. And it's all garter stitch, so it's pretty good TV knitting.

Thanks again!

I just finished a baby blanket for new nephew, who will be here in June. My sister just received it at her baby shower this weekend and I think she really liked it.

Pattern: Revolution by Woolly Thoughts
Yarn: 8 skeins of Filatura Zara
Needles: Size 4

I'm not sure I'll take on another blanket on size 4 needles, but I'm happy with this despite now that it's done.

More details and pattern link on the blog-thanks for looking!

Thanks for the comments, everyone!

amybarnett- It's hard for me to say, but I think I would rate this as an intermediate project. It does have an unconventional cable and a lace pattern, but the directions are excellent and in two forms: they are spelled out in words and in chart form. Also, hats are small, so if you make a mistake it's pretty easy to rip it back and fix it. I would definitely recommend trying it not only because it's a great end product but also because it will give you more knitting confidence.
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Rose Red Beret on: April 01, 2008 08:36:07 AM
Well, mine is a Poppy Beret, but it's based on the new Rose Red Pattern from Ysolda (link: http://ysolda.com/wordpress/2008/03/24/rose-red/ ).

Yarn: Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sport, purchased 20% off from Sonny & Shear (I love them!)
Needles: Size 4 DPNs and 16" circulars
Modifications: None, really. Used a sport weight instead of a DK yarn and made the Large size instead of the Medium to compensate for gauge.

This pattern is super fun to knit and wonderfully written. More info on the blog. Thanks for looking!

Thanks for the review of the yarn. I'm definitely going to make a baby sweater...I was thinking about making Trellis from knitty. I thought the color would look really nice with some wood toggle buttons- like it would give off a Starsky & Hutch type of feel. Except Baby Starsky (so probably less guns and drugs).
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Oh, Herringbone... on: March 06, 2008 08:47:24 AM
I love you.

Pattern: Herringbone Mittens - free pattern from Elliphantom
Needles: Size 4 and 6 DPNs
Yarn: Paton's Classic Wool Merino
Modifications: original pattern had pompoms, but I didn't think the recipient would be into them.

I cannot recommend this pattern highly enough- it is SO much fun to knit and I think it makes a really well-shaped mitten.

More on the blog.

I love what you did with the embroidery- it takes it from cute sweater to adorable piece.

I just got 5 skeins of that same color Bernat soy mix on sale for $2 a skein at Michael's...what do you think of it? What was it like to knit with?

You knit so many beautiful things, but I have to say this one is my favorite of your sweaters (so far!). I see what you mean about it calling out for gray...it's just so beautiful.

Yay- gauntlets for everyone! Yours look so great! The yarn makes the cable really pop.
