Orangina with subbed yarn and tighter gauge

04/03/2006  11:50pm

I managed to get 4 rows during the last few minutes of the NCAA Men's Basketball game, and it's actually a wonder that I did not screw up any of the lace. (GO GATORS!)

Hello everyone! I wound up joining here since my friends Chrissy, Megan, and Heather somehow planted the idea in my addled head to do it. I am a slow knitter and I have a collection of WIPs that makes me cry sometimes.

It seems that with my subbed yarn (Tahki Cotton Classic) and tighter gauge, the resulting fabric might not be as drapey as everyone else's appears to be. However, I feel good about this and it'll definitely be a good learning experience, if just to complete my first sweater. Cheers!

So far, so good, Olivia! It's beautiful. I'm in love with the color.

I'm sure that between swatching and your kickin' spreadsheet, this will come out beautifully. =)

GO GATORS is right!

Chrissy said...

It looks so pretty! I love the color, and I can't wait to see how it progresses.

I hope I get to see it in person this weekend! Or at least the knitter. :)

Yay olivia!
I'm feeling slackerish that my yarn isn't here yet.
eeeps! I love that we got you in this too!
