Ok, nevermind. I looked at the other sizes and calculated and there the numbers make sense. I think the 18 should be a 16 and then it works out. So typo or error in pattern.

Oh, good to hear you can knit on. I read your post when I was only half awake and was so confused by the numbers.
I finished the armwarmers last weekend - and heard that one of my cousins is going to be a dad! I'm thinking baby booties like these?

Something quick and fun! This is not actually for me, it's for a fat Pomeranian named Pnut, whose (human) parents are getting married this weekend! (Excuse my hideous sunburn/grossness)

I miss knitting. I haven't started a new project or worked on anything since before I moved (in April!) so I might dig out the needles this weekend.

i need recommendations for a pattern please! i'd like to knit a light summer cardigan, maybe even something that would be considered more of a shrug that just hangs without buttoning. i'm going on vacation in 2 days and need to find a pattern to take with me to knit on planes and beaches. let me know if you know of the perfect pattern!

i've been sewing. this is the first sneak peek. most of these have short straps on the back and are meant to be worn snuggly over one shoulder like a backpack...

Wow, maygles, well done! I tend to stay away from lacy patterns, because I'm a coward. ;P

kittee, these are so awesome (but what else did I expect).

i have frogged the last dozen or so things i've made. i just can't seem to get anything the way i want it.
the beret, i made and then decided it looked stupid on me.
then the scarf- i want a good, fluffy, color block scarf that lays flat and doesn't curl. i tried a Dr Who type one, then the Ancient Tree Hunt Tree Hugger scarf, and both just don't do it for me. By the time i get it done, it will be summer again.
maybe i should just get to work on the baby stuff that i need to do- almost everyone i know is expecting a baby in december.

This one was actually quite easy! It's a 10 row repeat, not a ton of increasing/decreasing, and since you're using bulky yarn, it's really easy to see the pattern and eventually you don't even need to look at the paper anymore. It's quick to knit up too! :)

Last night I attempted to start knitting on circular needles, and it was DISASTROUS. My cast-on stitches got SO tight by the time they reached the other needle, I couldn't keep their "butts" in the right spot, and I hate seed stitch to begin with. I had to cut the yarn off the needle because I couldn't get it off otherwise. So frustrating.

circular (or DPNs for that matter) are hard to figure out, but practice and it will become second nature. if i had a nickel for every time someone looks at me knitting with them and i want to remind them to close their mouth....

i still am in some kind of knitting/crochet doldrums. i have two more pregnant friends (both due in Nov/Dec) and i can't think of what to make. blankets take too long (and only for VERY SPECIAL PEOPLE, in case that special person sees this thread!), sweaters make me stabby.... fish hats are good but the baby will be born in the summer, so a hat is sort of useless.... maybe little socks?
i desperately need stuff to knit but can't find something i like, so everything gets frogged.

i do need a tea cozy though, and have some wicked orange yarn, so maybe that's a hint (pumpkin cozy?)

torque - I know! So many babies all around!
Take a look at some things from my Ravelry queue - maybe they will give you an idea?
booties: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library ... s-archived
http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library ... es-bootees
http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library ... se-booties (!!)
http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/baby-janes-2
I also found two larger garments - a buttoned vest and a wrap-around kimono thingy - that look like quick knits and are adorable (especially in different colours or patterns):

I really want to make some socks, but ones that are warm for winter and not all acrylic since they get too hot and sweaty. Does anyone here have any yarn recommendations? The only weight requirement is I don't want anything thicker than worsted.
