I'm in! I'm just trying to decide what I can use from my stash. But, any excuse to buy yarn is always good :-D

I'm def. going to join in. I don't know what yarn I'm going to use...I do have some fabulous stuff from my SP. But I think I want a more neutral color.

I wonder if I could re-work this and do it in a worsted weight. I have tons of that. Then again I could double strand. Any suggestions ??

I started this yesterday and it's going really fast!  I am having a hard time figuring out where to end the raglan increases though.  It says, "Continue raglan increases until sleeve measures the circumference of your upper arm."  This is right before you split the sleeves from the body.  I guess I'm just having a hard time visualizing these sleeves - as we are knitting the raglan increases, aren't we adding to the *length* of the sleeves, not the circumference?  Has anyone gotten that far yet with their pattern?

Tika - you're sort of doing both.  If you've got a decent amount of this knitted, it might be worth you putting the pieces onto scrap yarn and trying it on. This would give you a much better visualisation of how the FO will look.

It's a really quick knit - I've finished mine, but my camera is out of juice!  Oh well, one of my cats has been trying to sit on it all day, at least she's got her own way now!

Ok, so I'm going to do this at some point, cause it's just too cute!  But for now I want to see how everyone's come out!

My first sort of real post!  I think my friend and I are going to try this one - don't hold me to it though.  I've been knitting for a few months and this seems like I could pull it off.  I just taught my friend to knit a few weeks ago and when I showed this to her she fell in love too!  I think with a little persuasion and heavy petting at the yarn store I can talk her into it.  Not to mention our husbands are leaving in a couple of days for a week long business trip Angry  I think a yarn splurge and this pretty little number might just ease our woes.  If we join we may have questions, so bear with us and THANK YOU in advance. 
Keep your fingers crossed for me!  I'm still building my knitting confidence - especially after my size fiasco with flapperakk's tube.

This is a super fast knit using bulk yarn. I cast on yesterday and am about halfway done. If I wasn't trying to move over the next few days I would probably be done already. I am doing this first using Patons Divine which is an acrylic/mohair blend. I bought this a few weeks ago and then didn't like it for anything, but it was white and the right gauge for this project so I figured I would give it a go and probably gift this out to one of my cousins for Xmas. I think I will make one for myself, but I want to order some cashmerino or temptation for that.

Woo!!!  (My husband charged the camera for me over night. Am not good with technology  Embarrassed)

This is the FIFTH thing this yarn has been, including a tube top, TWO Ubernaturals and a Hot Lava.  I like this though so I don't think I'll unravel it!

I just casted on last night and used worsted weight ( Noro  Silk Garden) . I casted on 68.  Hope this works for you.

Hey guys - Emms, thanks so much for the props, and the KAL (I see we are both Family Guy fans!) As you happy knitters may know, I am NOT (yet?) a designer, so pattern errors happen - especially when it's the 2nd nite in a row that I'm up till 2am...why Huh

You earned those props! And np about the KAL... unfortunately it is 2 am and I am also up... maybe we share a gene?

I haven't cast on for this yet because I want to do it in a creamy white, and I thought I had that in my bsmt, but looks like I don't, so its off to the LYS to see what they have... the only thing as good as knitting... buying yarn!
