Anyone up for a KAL for Knitty's Askew?


I have great plans for this one.  The pattern does call for wool, but I love to sub and mod and switch and add, and I think this pattern is perfect for that sort of knitting.

I'm in!

I love this pattern! 

I was looking for a tank pattern just as the new knitty came out, I had yarn in mind...and Askew presented itself at just the right moment...

I've got a few other little things to finish up, so I'll probably get started next week!

The yarn will be from Interlacements, an orange-brown-gold based varigated sorta thing, got it at Stitches West, 700 yards for $20!

Great Smiley  I'll be able to CO next week too.

The yarn colours you've chosen are exactly the ones I love! (and perhaps might be using too).  I have to see how far I think I can stretch 4 balls of Rowan HandKnit Cotton DK (yeah, I know the gauge will be off, but I might be making it lacy, and so can up the needles).

Here's my yarn...

Funny how you remember things, when I balled the hank, I felt like the color was a lot more of the rusty shades, but looking at it now it looks very grey-blue...

The dye job is very uneven--which is kinda why I like it--but I ended up getting cheaper because of it...some places the green is fern, some places it's emerald, some places the grey is grey but sometimes it's dark blue, sometimes it's light blue, sometimes it's almost purple!   I think the woman who colored it didn't like it, but I think it's perfect!

Wow, never seen that pattern before!

I won't be knitting this, but I will be checking in every so often to see your progress!

Lovely yarn too!

I just printed this out yesterday. I figured I wouldn't get started on it for a while, since I have so many other things already in my queue, and then there's the yarn issue. I'm trying not to buy anything new right now, and I didn't think I had anything that would work. However, Emily, your yarn reminds me of some Noro Lily Multi that I have. It doesn't stripe, but it is variegated. Prolly need to mess with gauge, but I can handle it! I'll have to see how it looks though - may look better in something self-striping, or solid, as opposed to the variegated.

I think you're right stripes vs varigated, stripes or solid would be better but it seems like half of craftster has the same thing in mind: stashbusting!   Grin

I try to have very few expectations, so I won't be too disappointed when a knit piece doesn't work...I'm actually getting much better at frogging the failures!  It was hard to do at first, but if it doesn't work, ya can't fight it.

I spotted this yesterday and promptly bought some Silk Garden to make it. I have some reservations about the assembly process, but it's too darn cute not to give it a try.

sharre and Emily - stashbusting rules!  I'm on a kick of that myself.  I just rediscovered some Debbie Bliss silk in yellow that I forgot I had, and so might make this "the one" for the pattern!

I've also got to dig up a lace pattern that I just might incorporate into the design.
