Harvest Shawl Test Knit
 
Hello everyone!!:waving:

I thought Id move us over here so we can talk about the things we run accross during this test knit so everyone can see, in case they had the same question...and help each other out.

If anyone wants to join us to test this....please private me your email and i will send you the pattern.


It has been brought to my attention(ty Crycket) that the yardage may be somewhat of an over exaggeration.
I did the shawl on less than 1100yds but im a tight knitter and wanted to make sure there were yarn requirements suitable for all types of knitters.

Please keep track of the yardage, and let me know what you used when your done.

This is soooo exciting!! :woot:
:knitting:

It was just math. According to the pattern, 6 balls @ 166 yrds is 996 yrds...but the truth was it was 5 balls @ 166 yrds and 1 ball at 199 yrds, and that would make it around 1029.

The only reason this was a topic of discussion was because I have 1093 yrds of Luxury Alpaca Cashmere in a fingering type weight. Therefore, just making sure I will make it. I really should, as long as there aren't any long lengths of flawed yarn.

Either way...very exciting...it is always good to over estimate the yardage a bit. Just in case.

Can't wait...

Ok...just started, very exciting too...I have never done a Provisional Crochet cast on before...neat-o

Anyway..was browsing my chart legend, and you have a C4F in there...but no cable needles mentioned in your Notions....

Unless of course I am blind....in which case...ignore me...*smiles*

Yayyy!! :woohoo: How exciting! Have had a very busy weekend (Easter, work, college hoops final four), but I should be starting tomorrow. :woot:

By the way, I also noticed the cable needle missing from the notions section.

Stupid question - when knitting on row 2, do you just knit/purl though the yarn overs, or is one meant to ktbl?

Crycket 04-05-2010 12:17 AM

Nevermind, I found what was throwing me off....

The YOs that follow purl sts then lead into a S1 K2Tog PSSO don't really need to be YOed. The yarn is already in front. I had gotten to row two and had a double YO in those spots and it was throwing me off.

Man...Lace, not for the tired or distracted....*sigh*...

lissaplus2 04-05-2010 12:19 AM

cool...
Yea lace is very demanding...rest assured tho, when you get to the 3rd or 4th repeat, you will be doin it much easier. I had it memorized by then.

check my other post out ....Ive taken pics of some of the stitches..and it talks about the types of yo's ive used in this pattern.

Crycket 04-05-2010 09:01 AM

That was nice and clear cut. *smiles* Once I had gotten though the first two rows (for the third time) I got it! *smiles* But that is me with any lace. It always takes an orientation period!

Hopefully today I will motor though some of it! *knock on wood*

Crycket 04-05-2010 03:31 PM

I have started and frogged this thing about 10 times already this afternoon....*grr*
