Started my first top-down sweater today, and even though I'm still not sure when exactly to separate the sleeves (the directions just say "when the sleeve parts fit around your upper arms"), I can't stop knitting. I'm already on my second (50g) ball of yarn. And I'm sure I'll figure it all out as I go along. It's true, this is much more fun that knitting from the bottom up.

YES, because you can always just add rows and then your border!! i did it and i suck at crochet, i wanted to use up stash but had really nice yarn i didn't want to just give away. now i get to see that light blue eyelash every day on my bed!

But then I'd have to buy an large amount of the same type of wool, I guess. So it doesn't become all bumpy and weird. Hmm. Maybe I can find some good deal online...

Oh and turns out, my best friend who was just here, does not have any potholders yet. So I'm making here some fancy ones. 8-)

This feels like an internet meme called Vegan Cat - something with a multicoloured background and a picture of a gigantic cat and the text "NO POTHOLDERS? - DEEPLY SHOCKED, CROCHETS SOME"

This granny square lap blanket is really easy and you could easily make it bigger by making more squares! The squares are bigger, so you don't have to worry about making as many squares all the same size.

Had a look at a couple other top-down sweaters for guidance (mostly kittee's - she's my knitting heroine) and then transferred the sleeves to some spare yarn and tried the whole thing on. So far it fits perfectly! Best feeling ever. Also, if the pattern is to be believed, it's super easy mindless knitting from now on. I'm so happy with this project.

You could always just make one giant, blanket-sized granny square. It wouldn't really matter if you used the same yarn or had slightly uneven stitches, and ultimately there would be fewer end to sew in (the part of crochet I hate the most).

I just started one myself:

i will have to take a photo of my blanket. it's maybe 4x8inch-ish squares of all different stuff but not lumpy or uneven. i had one cone that i wanted to use up and so that was the "connector" for the binding together. i used lots of different stitches, knit and crochet, and it's really cool! and super toasty warm.

I have started crocheting choirqueer's granny scarf in silver grey. I love it! And yes, I will probably just start a granny blanket after, for the sake of it. Potholders unite.

I love knitting sweaters from the top down. Those are my favorite patterns.

I'm thinking about trying amigurumi, does anyone know of a basic pattern that can just be modified for human amigurumi? Basically I want to make a few superhero dolls for a friend of mine.

It's currently even longer than this (I can't stop knitting!):
Image

And I'm here: http://www.ravelry.com/people/VeganPhoenix (still the name from the old boards, since you can't change usernames on Ravelry).

I just kept trying it on (yay again for top-down sweaters) until I realized how the sleeves were going to look, then put them on some spare yarn and joined the remaining stitches. Super easy, and super fun!

Your cables look awesome, btw. Love the colour too!

Damn you work fast!

I am SO slow. I should pick smaller projects, so I might actually get something done in a reasonable amount of time.

It's just that whenever I get a yarn that's a cotton blend or something, I'm all like, "I can't put this down, it feels so nice". And besides, it was the weekend, and I wasn't feeling too good, so I stayed on the sofa knitting in front of the TV.
And I've got the best buttons for this project, so I want to be able to wear it soon. (The pic is bad - damn you, cellphone! - but that's actually printed outlines of trees!)

I finally started on my first project of the year! It is a wooly (not made of wool so yarny?) hat for my Granda.

http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library ... -watch-cap

I started knitting the medium but it was huge. So I had to rip it out and start over!
