yeah yeah.. I had only done about 3 rows when I asked that question..
it looks all right so nevermind about the purl ness.

I looooove the patagonia.  It's so soft and gorgeous.
It seems like I'll have enough for the majority of the thing.
I can't wait to post photos when it's done.

I finished this recently - but unfortunately it doesn't fit me.  I made the next-to-smallest size.  It's actually fine across the back, but the arm widths are too small!  I can get it on, but it's painfully constrictive.  Oh well.  I'm going to gift it to someone in my knitting group - there are a couple of petite gals in there.  I used two skeins of K1C2's Tartelette ribbon yarn, which is beautiful stuff -

It's soft and pretty - just wish it fit me.  Smiley

uhh.... I just finished row 30 and I have:
left sleeve: 36 sts -- correct
body section: 50 sts -- incorrect
right sleeve: 36 sts -- correct

I guess I'll just carry on with the increases and then k2tog in the middle of the body section so it stays 50 sts.. haha
I'm usually a careful knitter/counter, but somehow rows back I messed up the placement of a marker and now this has happened.  Undecided
I don't want to rip because it's not THAT big of a problem.. and also, I don't think this yarn could handle being ripped and reknitted.

a question for those of you who have knitted the OSW:  does it matter if my circs are 29" instead of 24"?  From the WIP photos, it looks like I wouldn't have to worry about it for the main body, but what about the pick-up ribbing?

Is there any reason we can't do inbetween numbers?  Like instead of 56 or 60 between the markers, can I do 58?  I ask because I already made one in 14 inches, and it's just a smidge too small, but the 16 inch will probably be a smidge too big.  I could just pick up an odd number of stiches at the end and do seed stitch or knit 1 purl 1 ribbing instead.  What do you guys think?

Well, I've finally caved... this is just too cute to resist.  I bought the pattern, now I'll just have to go home, look at my stash and see what I can use.  I'm thinking some of my hand dyed stuff...  yay.  But I really should try to finish my other projects first before starting this, but they're so boring, knitting in the round felted bag, it's neverending.  This may just be the quick fix I need to finish up my other stuff.  I may also frog another shrug I did since this is a better pattern for the yarn I used, still haven't worn the other one cause it rolls and looks crappy.  Hope I can figure out the pattern.

Dithmer, I dont see a reason why you couldnt do that.  I think someone posted on how they figured out how many to cast on so that it was the right width, something to so with knowing your gauge and your back measurement. 

LolaBella, youll love this pattern!  If you have any probs anyone on here will come to the rescue

I have a ton of Cascade 220 and Cotton-ease (yay Tuesday Morning clearance) But I am having trouble getting gauge with these. On the 10.5 with cascade I was still a tad off. So for those of you who used either of these yarns, did you change needle size? Or did you just say screw it... Like I am tempted too? Smiley
