Everyone's progress sounds great!! I unfortunately have to take a little hiatus from the sweater and do two pair of clogs for bday presents, and then another three pair and a baby blanket. but i do plan to visit the sweater when i can....

you will all probably be done by the time i get back to it :(

No allegra!! Come back to the sweater! It's so much fun!! Hehe! I can't wait to see all the different colors and yarns of everyone's sweater. I finished the yoke of mine, it got a little scary because the stitches are a little stretchy on the big circ's, but I see that there are some increases coming up. Somehow I ended up with an extra stitch in the front I guess I'll just stitch two together to fix that, or would that be noticeable since it's in the front and hear the top? Maybe if I do it on one of the turn down hem rows that would be best...listen to me brainstorming outloud while I type! I'm a mess!! Kooky knitting lady!

Woo hoo, Kellyjo, you're almost there! I'm about 1/2 done with the second sleeve. The end is in sight!

Nope, you have to stay, allegra--no backing out! okay, we'll let you slide to your clogs and such, but only if you promise to give us an update...on what you're woking on.

kellyjo, yoke!! you may leaving soon too!! ktog on turning sounds like a great plan.

let me know how your neck turns out--I've heard that it can be a little wide. I am planning on decreasing at the neck--since, I want a fairly tight neck.

:XX:

knitbebe, i was scared about the neck b/c when i looked at it, it looked HUGE, but then i realized that the big circs are really stretching it out a lot, so i loosened up some of the tension on the circs, and wa-lah, normal sized neck, it does look a little loose, i just hope the yarn i chose will looked relaxed like the yarn used in the original. we'll just have to see! 5 more rows!

oh but i do have a question...i still have to hem the bottom and sleeves, and i'm trying to figure this out :thinking:
it's telling me to slipstitch them, how exactly would one go about slipstitching?i figured it would just be sewing them together with the yarn on a yarn needle?

kellyjo,
:thinking: I don't have a clue about the slip stitch. I am sure that if you follow the instructions word for word as you're doing it--it will make sense.

Maybe Mer could help?? OOOooo, Mer!!

I'm going to do some thinking on this .

I'm not sure about the slip stitch either. :thinking: Isn't that a crochet term? Maybe you use a crochet hook? I haven't looked into it too much yet, but I imagine just sewing it down with a tapestry needle could work!

Yeah, that's what I was thinking...in crochet terms. I just don't get it...maybe I'll post in the how-to forum.

Hi, I'm new, and I'm so happy to see that there is a KAL for the Hourglass Sweater! I won't be starting mine for a few days (It's my Knitting Olympics project) and so I'm sure you all will be practically done by then, but I just wanted to poke my head in and wish you all luck, and beg you all to post pictures of your finished sweaters!
