Remove me?

Hi, I'd like to be removed from this blog. According to blogger only the admin of a blog can remove a member. My name on the Member's page would be either nonokitty or Danielle.

Thank you so much.

Delete me!

Hi, I'd like to be deleted as a member of this blog. I finished my minisweater more than a year ago and I'm trying to clear up my Blogger Dashboard. So please, delete me!

On row 15 now....

I casted on "the boobholder" a few weeks ago and finally had the time again to work further on it. I'm using Phildar impact 3.5 in "braise" and Phildar superbaby in "chocolate". By holding the strings of yarn together I was able to get the right gauge and make the colors less "in-your-face". I'm currently on row 15 and was also confused about where the sleeve sections were, but thanks to this blog, I can now continue on. I will hopefully be able to post some pictures tomorrow on this wip on my blog. Will keep you posted....

Hi all-A little late but the summer is long

I'm a little late knitting this summer sweater, I know, but better late than never. I saw this sweater two months ago and knew I had to knit one. I had a few things to knit first, so it had to wait, but now I'm pretty much done and I love it. It took me only 4 days to knit which I was quite surprised about. I have yet to sew in the ends and I have to find a good button for the front, but it's done and it fits. I'm thinking of knitting a second one and extending the waist down a bit like Tami made hers.
I had a few questions I wanted to ask while knitting, but I didn't want to wait for the answers so I just kept knitting. Did anyone else knit 10 rows more than in the pattern called for just before you separate the sleeves from the main body? Am I that big that I need 10 more rows? I ripped twice trying to get it to fit at this stage and the only thing that worked was 10 rows more. I'll post my picture as soon as I get it done.

Quick question: I am at the section where you add the sleeve stitches, and I'm confused. Can someone tell me which are the "sleeves" and which is the body? is it this:

sleeve PM sleeve PM body PM sleeve PM sleeve


sleeve PM body PM body PM body PM sleeve

I thought it was the second way but I also remembered less markers so I'm not sure how to proceed.


Newbie and new sweaters!

Hi! I've just started the minisweater after being a longtime reader of Stefanie's blog. I also just finished her One Skein Wonder and a friend finished her minisweater in 2 days so I was ready to start my own.

Today I cast on not one but two minisweaters. I started one in Rowan Cork, then decided I didn't like the garter stitch border but instead of frogging it, I decided to restart in my Rowan DK Marl. I'm not sure if it will work out or if I'll have enough DK Marl to finish, so I'm completing both simultaneously, if possible.

I'll put some photos on my blog later today if I can't get them uploaded here.

Stick a fork in it ...

... Because it's done! I finished my lovely Minisweater. It's fabulous, probably one of my favorite things I've ever made. I wore it out and got compliments galore. Ofcourse I'm going to have to make another one. I might have to make TWO more, since my 13 yeard old sister is begging for one of her own. Take a look at my blog to see pics. :)

done! hooray!

I finished! I used Lorna's Laces Shepherd Worsted in black purl. I used way less yardage than was called for, so I guess my gauge was off. It fits me, so I don't care!
There are details & pictures on my blog.

This is my first post. This is also the first thing I've tried to knit that wasn't a scarf. Possibly not the best choice as it's a little complicated.

Anyway, I've knit about 11 rows only to realize that I haven't been increasing using the right method. My question: Does it matter if I increase by knitting into the same stitch or do I have to increase by knitting the stitch below (as the pattern calls for)? If I do have to increase by knitting the stitch below, does anyone know a good tutorial for that, because I haven't been able to find one.

row 15

Apologies if this has already been asked, but what exactly is meant by this:

work increase row as normal, but increase five stitches evenly over both sleeve sections.

Ok, so I need to do five increases in the sleeve sections, right. But the type of increase I have been doing (KLL and KRL) wouldn't really work in the middle of the fabric. So, do I just count my stitches and do a different type over the sleeve sections?
Also, on the sleeves-- they are knit flat, then seamed? Am I reading that correctly?
