I cast off the body last night - didn't think it was the best idea to cut the steeks while tired, though, so cast on a sleeve!

I had steek-cutting nightmares all night.

Back from Stitches West and catching up.  I spent quite  a bit of time looking for yarn for this project, but no luck.

Peppersaskatoon-Thanks!  for the tip on Uncommon threads.  Los Altos is close enough, but I've never been there.  I'm so HAPPY to hear that they carry the Jamieson.  I'll be heading there soon.

Martini Monsters-your sweater is so beautiful.  That's for the tips on swapping colors.  I'll follow your advice and keep the base and swap in blues...that's what I hope to do anyway.  Don't know if I can pull it off  Cry

Is anyone finding the Spindrift to be very scratchy?

Oh yay, goldengrrl...I hope you find something you like.

Yeah, I'm wondering if anyone else is considering knitting the inside of the cuffs and the collar in a soft yarn, to make it all just a little less scratchy.  I've got some cashmere from an old scarf my cat got to, and I'm thinking of giving it a try...

After constant drooling over this thread, I decided to join in. Elongating the sleeves should be relatively easy; on the other hand, how I'll figure out steeking scoop neck, is yet to be seen. But:

ok i have a technical question regarding this sweater, I have knit fair isle but only with two colors. How do you do it when you change colors every few rows, do you have to break the yarn when you're done and weave it later? Is there a way to kind of just carry it up the side?

This was asked a (long) while ago but I didn't seem to find the answer. That must be beacuse it is obvious, right? So - which one is it, did you break or carry? Wink

So that you could see I've reached the point where I have to make this crucial decision, I'll show you my progress, if one is allowed to call this strip progress at all:

Tiny knitting is cool! And it's the only way of knitting that justifies stranding, I think. Even Deep V Argyle Vest ended up so bulky, but Venezia's fabric seems quite OK in this respect.

holy crap that looks gorgeous!

Unfortuneately i had to stop knitting mine, it was too huge, and i realized that i couldn't afford the yarn i had bought for it, i had bought one of each color and that cost 50 bucks, i cant afford a 200 dollar sweater right now. I think i may try it again later with pallette.

As for the question i asked so long ago, i broke the yarn as i went, it was getting too tangly to keep them going up the side

Mustaches are sooo 2 years ago

That is looking amazing, wabbit.

Love those colors.  It looks great.  I can't wait to see the rest.

I started mine, then had to rip it all out, because the bottom band was huge.  I am going to have to start again soon.  I have a couple of other projects I want to finish, before I forge ahead with Venezia.

Thanks superstitch, guess you're right. I was also afraid the vertical floats would be too long. And thanks everyone! This thread provides enormous moral support - though before Venezia I didn't think I'd ever actually need moral support to finish a knitted item Grin
