A bit late, but...
And the winner is...Julie! Congrats, and great job on your Rogue! Email me with your color and yarn weight preferences, and I'll send it to you ASAP.
See my blog for more!
Happy knitting [like mad] to everyone who hasn't finished yet. YOU CAN DO IT!
The caption here (left) is "Mom, I don't have any makeup on -- I look terrible!" Mom says, "So, I'll take the picture from back here. We want to see the cable, anyway."
(right)This is sleeve #1, on the arm of her brother, as she was on the phone & didn't want to model. I've finished it and am actually further along than this on sleeve #2. I just realized that if I don't get back to work on this, I'll wind up like a certain snowboard cross racer who thought she had enough of a lead to get fancy, then crashed & lost the gold.
I messed up on the middle section, so I had to think of some compromise. I HATE frogging.
Never mind that hole, I did the cable section before I read the errata on the double increase. And don't mention the right twist where it should have been left.
And the hood:
Cable messups in all the sections, yeah. But it's not for me. So I'm not worrying.
I tried to have it be a kids' 10...I thought I had gauge, so I configured it to a 29" chest based on a 4.5 sts/in gauge. Well? Turns out my gauge was one full stitch off. So, the final recipient will have to wait until I make a bigger size. Darn. I shoulda used bigger needles.
As of last night, the second sleeve is done and sewn up. Pictures to come!
And looky-booky: I did think of a little prize!
Here are the details: Everyone who posts at least one update in the next 2 days (a bit tight of a dealine, yeah, but the olympics are almost over!) will be eligible for a skein of handpainted (by me, I love dying! I mean, as in dying yarn.) yarn in the colorway and weight (as in worsted, etc, not as in 8oz) of their choice! I will choose the names during the closing ceremonies! Dawn, Sarah, Julie, and Erika are all already eligible. Maybe this will attract more attention to the team...
