To anyone knitting this pattern...... I finished the back last night but I had to adjust the instructions. It says after decreasing to knit 37 (or 41 rows for my size) in St st. I got to 31 and it was looking a little long already. The pattern says the length should be 55 centimeters and I was at 59. My guage seemed to be correct..... did I miss somthing along the way?

jjones-
thanks for the observation....did you see pinkfreak's correction?
(see below):

Right now I've finished the back and half the front. I've found one minor errata on the front while shaping armholes. The 27 last rows should say work in pattern instead of st st.

Yup, I got that.. thank heavens for this forum. I would have figured it out but their would have been some frogging and possibly some profanity involved. I think my DH and kitties are happy for pinkfreak's post.

OMG!!!
I just got a ball of alpaca silk to swatch with and it is AMAZING. SO soft in the ball. It knits up into a fairly heavy fabric, which is a bit of a disapointment, but i cant be sad for too long.... my stiches look great and did i mention how soft it is?!
:)
im in love...

How's everyone's projects with the alpaca silk going? I've finished one sleeve and I'm almost done with the back of Maria. The yarn is so wonderful! But man, don't you go through the skeins quickly? I've been doing the spit splice so I don't have ends to weave in.

I'm just starting ANA. Yes, you do go through the balls very quickly. I wish there was more yardage on each ball. I have quite a few other projects going in addition to Ana, so I am trying to finish those up before I really dive into this new project.

I am not a very experienced knitter, so I am not familiar with the splicing method of adding yarn. Is there somewhere online that demonstrates this technique? I would love to learn.

Here's a site that tells you how to spit splice: http://www.sheeweknits.com/t_t.htm

Sherry, I'm sorry to hear about your hand, I hope it feels better soon. I don't have any pictures posted yet, but I'll put some up soon. I'll let you know.

Jeannine,

Looked at your photos -- you got such a nice even stitch with your Point 5. What needle size did you use?

Thanks,
RoseM
p.s. That pile of Iro yarn is so beautiful!

Hey Gals,
TO anyone who has finished the Frieda sweater, any idea why the sleeves are contructed the way they are and not in one simple piece? I am still a fairly new knitter but it seems a little more complicated than it needs to be?

Hi Rose!

Thanks for the compliment on my Point 5 stitch. Believe me, when I was knitting it, I felt like it looked horrible, but it turned out ok. I enjoyed knitting with that yarn and I am hoping to find a sale on it in the future, because it can be pricey. I was lucky enough to purchase it at a deep discount from another KR member. I am pretty sure I used a size 17 needle for the sweater. It was the pattern from the Yarn Girls Guide to Simple Knits. I just extended the collar to make it a loose mock turtle.

I am knitting Frieda! This is a fairly big leap for me, as it's my first adult sweater, but I love it, and I will persevere until I complete it! YAY for Frieda!
