bubilina - you have any pictures of the evening shell on?  it looks really good!
I want to see too! I'm in love!

No action shots yet - too busy with school.  I'll get them up as soon as I have a free second.

As for the yarn - this was a super inexpensive project.  4 skeins of Softee Chunky were plenty for both the shell and hat, even double stranded.  (It's actually hot pink, the lighting was horrible.)

I'm using a skein and a half of Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece in Olivette doubled on 15's to make the Feather Scarf. Kinda worried about finding the huge crochet needle for the ends later - hope it isn't hard to find one locally.

Here's my best friend cardigan knitted with cleckheaton gusto 10 and minus the bobbles. I wanted to try one of the free patterns avaialbe online before committing to buying the book because I was concerned about how the bulky yarn would look on a frame that's not supermodel thin. I have now been reassured myself and ordered the book on amazon. Can't wait to knit some more of these patterns. Details on my blog.

Okay - I'm working on the Best Friend Cardigan using the free instructions from the Canadian Living site.  I am SO CLOSE to being done, but have thoroughly confused myself and am hoping so fabulous person here will take pity on me.

So I've finished most of the knitting on the sweater and have come to the part where I am supposed to sew the shoulder seams.  I'm assuming that I have to take the two front pieces and seam them to the 10 back stitches that are on the holder.  Is this correct?

EDIT:  This is actually NOT correct!  I figured it out awhile after I posted this.  You don't actually seam the front pieces to the back using the 10 back stitches on the holder.  You seam them to the shoulder seam decreases to the left and right of the sts on the holder.  I just kept re-reading the directions for the back when it hit me what the decreases at the top were for. Smiley  I think the bulky stitches had me confused. Smiley

If this is correct, then I have two serious problems:

Problem 1:  I am knitting the medium size and each of the two fronts each has six stitches on it.  6 st X 2 pieces = 12 st.  Which is greater than the number of stitches I have on the holder for the back: 10 st.   Huh?!

Problem 2:  If I seam the front pieces to the back using the stitches on the holder, the stitches will be 'used up' at that point and no longer on the holder and not available for me to use later when I'm picking up stitches for the collar.   When I look at the errata for this sweater on the Classic Elite page,  it says when you knit the collar to pick up stitches from the Right Front Neck Edge, 10 STITCHES FROM THE HOLDER ON THE BACK, and then pick up stitches from the Left Front Neck Edge.   ACK! Brain melting...

PLEASE show me the error of my ways.  I like to think that I'm a pretty seasoned knitter  but I am totally stumped here.    Hopefully my rambling makes sense.  If not, I can post some pictures that should make it all painfully clear.

Thanks in advance!!
