you could try making a toque (errr winter cap for the non-canadians). the are quick and easy and often on circulars. that would give you some confidence, and it will keep your head warm!

Here is a picture of my second attempt sweater with no purl ridges. I only have a small bit of the lace done, I hope you can see it! Smiley

I think it looks great.  Takes away the bulk that I think the purls make.  Thanks for posting.

rtrgrrl, thanks for the photo, I think I'll skip my ridges too...

It looks nice without the purl ridges, but I wonder what it would be like if the lace was a different color. (Which is the question I'm debating at the moment, whether or not to skip the purl ridges and switch colors)

Nixing the purl ridges seems like a good idea...in a picture the purl doesn't seem so bad, but I know when I'm wearing it I'll just look down all the time and wonder what's going on down there.

Right, I spent all day looking longngly at the pattern and decided I would never wear this beautiful sweater. But my mum would love it. So I indulged.

I am going to knit it in my favourite budget but lovely wool, Cygnet Wool Rich aran. I could bathe in the stuff.

The only thing I need is a glitzy carrier yarn for the lace panels, which I'll track down over the weekend.

I have a feeling I'll whip this baby out in no time.

It IS a fast and fun knit....


I am STILL waiting for the ONE EXTRA SKEIN of yarn I need to knit the last ten rows.  I ordered it over a week ago and have not gotten any response from the vendor other than an automated "we receive dyour order" email about 10 minutes after I placed the order. 

Repeated emails from me asking when the yarn will be shipped have led to no response.   I think a phone call is in order today....

I want to wear this a week from today... which I can do if I get the yarn before Wednesday as I'm going to have no time to knit after that.

During our thunderstorm this evening, I finished the lace and purl section of the waist and took some pics of the tunic on me, in really awful light....like no light, but you can see the carry along yarn and the color.


Dawnya- what yarn did you use?  I just ordered the Tilli Thomas, and I ended up going with the disco lights, and it looks like your yarn is sequined?  I ask because I think yours is gorgeous and if you used the disco lights, then I am even more excited about using it now!

Also, for anyone else, how do you read a chart in the round?  I thought you always went R to L on odd rows and L to R on even rows, but then I knit a hat (in the round) with a chart and it was obvious that you read it L to R on all rows (or maybe its R to L on all rows).  Anyway, any chart help would be much appreciated!

man charts are different, ushually they are numbered on the side your supposed to be reading from.

Some charts I have seen go left to right, right to left, soo you do all odd numbers from the right, and all even from the right... then others I have seen are all left to right.. I'm not sure for this, I havn't gotten that far yet. Look for numbers.
