You can take scissors to your knitting any time you want! It may not work out very well, but there are some things it would be very satisfying on! :rofling:

After my bizarro weekend, I almost took scissors to Tubey.

I would have. It would have been stress relieving at the time, though! It's like how I used to rip up all my writing every few months. Gotta keep it fresh. :rollseyes:

oh my god I can't believe I missed this. where oh where was I?

What a brilliant set of instructions Ingrid, absolutely fantastic.

To top it all off you steeked this intricately patterned sweater instead of some ol' simple thing. I am going to try this someday, ha, after I figure out how to make a simple sweater first.

Ingrid,

Do you have a link to a pattern for circular needles for a "completely in the round", tubular sweater by Elizabeth Zimmerman? I had all of EZ's books, but, sadly, these have been lost.

Peace,

Landolphe

All the patterns I've used are in books. www.knittingfool.com has a design-your-own pattern for raglans, using any size needle or yarn. www.knittingpatterncentral.com is the next place to 'shop.'
