FO: Stardust Sweater the Third
Needles: sz 7 circular
Yarn: 5 skeins of Sublime Yarns Kid Mohair Blend in white
Notes: After trying to accomplish this for the third time, I felt that I could make some adjustments without making a mistake. So, I knit the body as one piece until the armholes, than I finished each part sepearately. Therefore I had much less to seam in the end. My favorite. I hate seaming things. I also made the ties thinner. The pattern calls for 20 sts, but I only did 16. Looking back, I might have made them even smaller, but I saved the ties from the second try at this pattern because the ties were the most annoying thing to knit. And they took the longest.
Overall, I am quite happy. Now onto bigger and better things. I am thinking about doing the Minimalist Sweater for the Knitting Olympics this year. I bought a REDICULOUS amount of Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran to complete it. I just don't know if I want to bring all of this to Europe to work on.
Also on my plate is figuring out how to make the sweater dress Stephanie wears in "The Science of Sleep." I finally ripped the movie so I can get stills, but pattern planning is hard work. Luckily, I don't go back to work until August 19 and I am not even ALLOWED in my school for the next two weeks because they're waxing. Woot woot!

Rediculous Superheroes (notice woman's best friend)
Some sort of crazy machine.

We were woken up at 6:15AM and had to break camp. We found out that if you enter Zion before 7AM, you don't have to pay to enter the park. (Sweet, saved $25.) We entered, waited on line for our licence to go on the hike, ate breakfast, crammed into our friend's pickup and drove 10 miles to the trail head.

After sewing up the seams of the sweater and almost finishing the first sleeve, I tried on the sweater. IT WAS TOO BIG! The Stardust Sweater is too small, so I made the size larger and adjusted the gauge (because I was using different yarn). I thought I had figured it all out, but no. It is HUGE. Now I have to frog the whole thing and make it a size smaller! I frogged the first sleeve and it was a huge pain in the butt. This yarn catches on itself and makes knots. Don't even mention the fact that I have to find all of the yarn I used to sew up the seams, unknot them, unsew them, and then frog all of the pieces. PAIN IN MY BEHIND! Arg. This totally turns me off to making this sweater again, but I plan on wearing it for a wedding in September, so I plan on using my summer off to re knit this with a fresh mind. I guess I'll have to find a new knitting project.
