Me 'n' Maygles are gonna do a sweater knit-along. Anyone want to join us? The sweater is super cute, knit top down and seamless! It's Raveled here: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library ... de-ripples and if you're not on Ravelry you can see it here: http://twistcollective.com/collection/index.php/component/content/article/75-fall-2009-patterns/414-low-tide-ripples-by-suvi-simola. (sorry for the ugly url).

I might be casting on sooner than Maygles, but still not for awhile yet. Post if you're interested!!

I've never done a sweater. Would you say this pattern is accessible to sweater n00bs?

i think this is more of an intermediate sweater, since it's got cables n charts. i'd be glad to point you to some good beginner options if you want. top down raglans are great.

I might be interested... I wonder if I have stash yarn I could use. This would make my mom's next b-day gift easy to figure out!

What yarn are you using kittee? And more importantly, what color?

I have a ton of vintage acrylic in my stash, but I have been recently wooed by a LYS here that has tons of vegan yarn. You go in and pick from all these cool choices, and then they ply it together for you. It's cool! But I was thinking a dark grey or navy blue for this one.

well, THAT gauge isn't going to happen..... (don't have the needles for it on hand) but there's really no need for a foot-high owl either!!! the way it's coming it looks to be about half to 2/3 the size.

That sounds fantastic!

I remembered that I don't love top-down sweaters and much prefer to do them in pieces. I'm going to look through my stash and at some patterns. Maybe I'll knit the same one with you if I have yarn, or this might have motivated me to knit a different one! I do love how the one you and Maygles picked looks... maybe I'll suck it up and knit top-down.

Really????? To me, piecing pieces together is the devil! Plus with a top down, you can try on as you go to make changes for a great fit!

The bulk of it gets me... if I'm knitting pieces I can do it on the T or take it places easier. And I don't mind seaming, I was a sewer way before I was a knitter. I do like being able to try on as I go. I've had one pieced sweater end up way too small (gave it to a cousin) and another that I had to cut the bottom 4" off of to add length in the middle (was faster than reknitting the bottom fair isle pattern).
