Autumn Color Cardigan - April 5, 2007

I don't have much to say today. I've been knitting. The sweater is slowly growing. All is well. The rooster flies at midnight.

There is an error in chart B, which is the chart I'm knitting now. It's a fairly obviously error if you compare the charts (charts B and D are the same, except with colors value reversed and stitches offset), or if you compare chart B to the photo. Of course, I needed Jessica to confirm that I wasn't just hallucinating. If you're knitting the sweater, let me know if you don't find the error, and I'll email you a scan of my corrected chart. I'm also going to let the folks at Schoolhouse Press know, so perhaps they can correct the chart in future printings or adjust the errata sheet for books that are already printed.

The hat pattern is coming soon. In fact, I hope that it will come tomorrow. I'll be selling it for a small fee, and am trying to figure out payloadz right now. The basic pattern is for a 16" hat, with tips for altering the pattern for up to a 22.5" circumference. But more on that when the prep work is all done.

Wow, that is so beautiful! How many balls of yarn do you carry at once? I bet the pattern is mesmerizing. I love watching a colorwork pattern take shape before your eyes!

The colors are just amazing! But to do this kind of colorwork, you have more patience than I, my friend!

Another winner on your needles. Color work is SO much fun and keeps you knitting way too long into the night to see what the next row will look like. Superior colors.

I normally lurk here . . .but those colors are so beautiful. I'm scared of colorwork . . .to learn a new technique and have it be too crazy for me to wear!
