Right now it's a blobbo but I took a photo to show the chunkiness and uploaded it to Ravelry. http://www.ravelry.com/projects/Minou/egeblad I'm knitting this on 10's, but when I do the next one, I think I'll use 10.5's. The McTaggart Tweeds are very hearty. The last one I did was a Fisherman weight and I used US9's, but the non-MT fisherman weight yarns are a little lighter. It's going to be much more open when I finish, but it's squished onto a 60" cable and I couldn't really spread it out for a nice photo op.

On Ravelry, the photo of the yarn is a true color shot. The indoor photos of my Egeblad look like pea soup, but it's much lovelier than that.

For the extension rounds, do you go back to 52 or 82 after the extra round 101?

-Rebecca
Yes, I actually had to backtrack and go back to round 32 in order to pick up stitches that increased, then moved onto round 51, changing and counting as I went to make sure I had the sts to knit on. If this makes any sense. At any rate, by round 50 or Ext Round 100 there were twice the sts on the needles and that makes it possible to pick up at 52 and begin the "final approach".

Let me make sure I've explained this correctly...
Knit using the original pattern from rows 1 through 81
Then start using the "Extension" pattern from Extension Round 82 through 101.
Now, return to the original pattern row 52 and follow through to row 87, binding off per instructions.

Please note:
The original pattern has a total of 20 scallops or points when completed.

Using the original pattern rows + extended rounds + original pattern rows will end with a total of 40 scallops or points.

In order to figure guage, you'll need to do a swatch, paying attention to the row guage, instead of st guage and double it because it is circular. Row guage should help you figure the size per the number of rounds knitted.

The original pattern has 87 rounds.
The extended pattern has 135 rounds.

Hope I made this clearer without confusing anyone.

I cast on this morning "just to see" and now I'm on round 47 or so. Thank you so much for figuring out the extensions. I'll probably work this until I run out of yarn. Here's what I have so far.

I also pulled out the Alita, which is knit in Dreams in Color yarn. I'm adding a knitted edge from another pattern, and that seems to be taking forever even though it's only 8 stitches across. I'll have to make myself do a certain number of inches (feet?) each day.

Both gorgeous! What size needles? I keep asking this because once I get off the size 2s, I'll be good and ready to use some larger!

However! I keep seeing this delicious "Lace Sample" advertisement at the top of the page from Knitpicks and eventhough it would take using the smaller needles, the "Sunset Picnic" keeps calling my name. mary, mary, aren't we inviting? Wouldn't you just love to run us through your fingers? LOL!

I used a 9 with the green one, and am using 8 with the Egeblad, mostly because my long 9's are still tied up.

Really, though, the 8's are working out great.
