Thanks everyone. :)
I will probably start the front at class Tuesday. I broke the smaller knitting needle the other day that I have to use to start. She is suppose to replace it.

AWESOME work! :cheering: :cheering: :cheering: I think now that you've successfully begun a garmend, you aren't a newbie anymore. :)

JGM,
I had to figure out a way to take the photo with the sweater back UNCURLED and that was the only way I could think of.
Thanks and glad you liked it,
Susie

Foldedbird,
I feel very much a newbie still. When I look at a pattern it is still almost all Greek, but I understand what you are saying and thanks for the compliment. Maybe after a year or so I wont 'feel' like a newbie. I'll be a toddler then. LOL,

You're not a newbie, or a toddler right? Aren't you an adult knitter? Or at least a 'teen ager'! :)

The sweater back looks great, your tension looks awesome, better then some of mine that I have done, and I have been at it for almost 22 years. lol
I really like the colours, I always thought stripes looked nice on little boys (umm let me re-phrase that little men) my son is correcting me :)

I know this is a little off topic susie, I just noticed underneath your name that you are going to be doing machine emb, let me know when you do, I belong to a fantastic beginner group, I have been doing emb for about 6 mths now, so still a newbie.

I guess I'm more of the teenager range, but I do throw temper tantrums when knitty things don't go my way!

Emeraldcutie,
Wow, what a compliment you gave me. :) Thanks for liking what I have done.
Yes, for Christmas I'm getting a Janome 300e. I have everything bought that I need "I think" and am ready to go.
What group, and what machine do you have?
How southern are you in Ontario?
I'm a half hour from the Canadian border in north western NY.

InterNette,
:) Thanks.
I couldn't get the durn thing to unroll and I couldn't hold it down and take the photo at the same time. Thanks for liking my idea. :)
I promise NOT to do it with my grandson in it. LOL

Hey you know I think some magazines give a subscription or something if they use your idea. I think you should send that in for sure, it is a winner and who knows what you could win. Some even give cash prizes.

Knitwise,
Give it a whirl. The yarn shop that gives lessons gave me a circular needle and a hat pattern after I had knitted for about a half hour. I thought they were nuts BUT I see the method in there madness. It causes you to "HAVE" to ask questions, look things up and really learn quickly.
:)
I'm sure you could do it.
Thanks for the congrats. :)

Rebecca,
OH yeah, I remember reading that somewhere else where you were just a toddler. :)
Wow, 47 in December? I remember that year. My son will be 23 on December 16th. Is yours around then?
I can imagine what your mind is like. LOL.
Enjoy your night,
Susie

Mine is Dec 6 and our son will be 28 in Dec; middle daughter was 23 this month and our Baby (http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y119/rebeccame/My%20Shannon/Shannon.jpg) is 20!!
I must say that I didn't have my son while in high school! He & middle daughter came with my husband, but are mine any way I look at it....I dearly love all of my babies that seem to have grown up over night!! Our middle daughter has our Allysa (http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y119/rebeccame/allysa/alyssaoutside.jpg) (she is 2 now, Amy needs to send us some more photos!!!!...but I'm afraid kids don't always listen....lol!) Seems as though yesterday our baby, Shannon, was the size of Allysa!! Excuse me as I sniff :crying: bc my babies grew up on me tooo quickly ;)

Your Very Welcome.
I have the brother PE200 (I think they are similar models) Mine was the limited edition that came preloaded with a ton of snoopy cartoon patterns.
Its a yahoo group called Embroidery Help. You can email me privately at l.j.c@rogers.com and I can send you a link to it.
Iam located an hour from Michigan Boarder (either the bluewater bridge going to Port Huron or the Windsor one connecting to Detroit)
Are you near Niagara Falls/Buffalo NY.
If thats the case Iam about 2-3 hours away. Not a bad road trip :)
