knittinkitten, what kind of yarn are you using?  it looks really soft and pill free.

It's Rowan Big Wool.  I think the color is Lucky, I'm not sure.

Here's a pic so far of my skating sweater:

I didn't like any of the Tahki Baby colors, so I got Rowan Big Wool on sale there instead.

Oi!  I was just at Borders and they didn't have it!  Grrrrr.

Can't wait to get my hands on a copy, cables are my favorite thing to knit

Not sure if this has already been mentioned, but there is a new Twinkle pattern in the most recent Interweave Knits magazine.  I just received mine a couple of days ago.  It is really cute.  A peplum-style cardigan.  I just started it with Soft Chunky in French Grey.

The Felt issue?

Ok...I finally broke down and bought the book after many months of lusting after the sweaters inside but at the same time hesitant how they would fit.  After looking at all the finished sweaters on here and flickr, I'm confident that I won't look like a hippo! 

I placed an order at yarn.com for five balls of Rowan Big Wool in Lucky (about $6 each!) and an order for needles from yarnmarket.com (those were a pretty penny).  Skating Sweater, here I come!

Shocked  I am so sorry to hear that, how off were you?!  My gauge was slightly off but as close as i think i'll get on my swatch.   When i knit large items fast it tends to loosen up a tad, small things like the swatches i tend to knit more evenly and tighter - on it i got 18 sts, 23 rows, instead of 17sts, 24 rows, so i think i will be safe.

Does that mean you will be joining us to re knit this in the near future? 

Let's just say if I was an 11 year old boy, it would have fit.  I couldn't get my arms through it was that tight (and I'm skinny, too!).  I think I had about two or three more stitches than I should have had for my gauge.  And now I don't know what to do with the yarn.  I don't really want to frog it since it would be really difficult to do: take out all the seams and frog a wool/mohair blend that likes to stick to itself.  But hey, it was an experience.  I think I'm going to try to tackle Knitty's Starsky instead now.

Definitely.  Check.  Gauge.


I finished my Central Park Hoodie and discovered the disastrous results from the gauge that I *thought* was ok: I had too many stitches per inch. Which meant that my sweater was way too small. Which meant I would never wear it, and would have to frog it and do it again. Sadness quickly ensued, and I still can't look at it in my knitting corner without getting a little upset about it. I really believe that it's the best sweater I've made so far, and the cables look gorgeous in the Lamb's Pride. I was really busting my butt trying to get it done so that when my aunt comes to visit she would be able to see the beautiful sweater I made. But I decided I won't rip it out until she sees it, so I have evidence! When I become less emotionally attached I'll start over. When I finish it, it'll probably be the appropriate season to wear it in anyway.
