I just got my Andean Treasure in a dark maroony red and going to cast on for it in the next few weeks.  Anyone want to join me?

Here's the site where you can get the pattern...

Funny!  I was just going to start a Glee thread!  I already started mine.  I'm using Ambrosia in petal, byt knitpicks.  It's coming along very nicely!

Hehehe! I was just going to start a thread too!  Grin

I got my Andean Treasure (Lilac) yesterday and I'm about 20 rows in now. I bought both the Lilac and the dark red color as I wasn't sure which one I wanted.. I decided on the Lilac (oooh so pretty) and I'll find something for the dark red later, this yarn is deliciously soft for the price! It really seems to knit up nicely too.

My gauge swatch was coming out at about 5.5 stitches per inch, as opposed to the patterns 6sts per inch.. Since I didn't have a pair of 4's to move down to, I've decided to try knitting one size smaller(XS). I guess I'll see how well this works out in a few days when I get to the arm CO's!

I'll post some pictures of my progress later. Looking forward to knitting this with ya'll  Cheesy

Some progress pictures.  It's a very easy and quick knit.

I am knitting Glee too so I am in!  I have been distracted by several other projects right now so it is not going as fast as I would like.  My bold orange version is a couple inches past the sleeves. 

What I am trying to work out is if I want to add any shaping or not.  Is anyone adding any modifications?

WOES! Embarrassed I'm going to be a little delayed on progress pictures and well, progress in general.. I left my six inches of glorious Glee, knitting needles, row counter and all, on the MAX (Portland's public transit light rail system) this morning on my way to work..

I've called their lost and found office, but they won't know until tomorrow if anyone was able to recover it. Granted, it was only about six inches of work, and two balls of yummy mohair goodness down the drain if it's lost for good.. but oh! The agony.

..and I was so looking forward to knitting on the MAX ride home today too. Shoot.

Hi ladies - I don't post too often on this board (more of a lurker personality) but I'm doing a Glee as well and I thought I'd join up.  I'm working in a rustic single spun sport weight and I'm almost done the increases.  I'm doing the largest size so the increase rows feel like they are taking forever.  Hopefully I'll have the arms on separate stitch holder soon.  Can't wait to see everyone's progress!
