    oh dang! I have a very important something to have knitted by almost the same deadline (@hamncheezr’s bday is Valentine’s day!) Hope I don’t fall behind!

      Really? That’s Katie’s too!! I’m making her Elephante out of red, white and pink handspun!!
      I know it’s fairly short but I figured it was a good time. The pattern doesn’t appear too hard. If people struggle (Quite possibly me. LOL) Then we can adjust the time.

    Yay! I am going to wind up my yarn today!

    Whoo hoo! Now I have a REAL reason to visit the yarn shop. THIS rookie knitter better get her butt in gear. 🙂

    I’m looking forward to this one. It will help expand my knowledge and test my skills. 🙂

    Nikki, I’ll be working two projects in tandem as well. I have a baby blanket to finish for a friend.

    I am down loading the pattern now. And then going to pick out the yarn, I hope I have some in my stash and don’t have to buy anything new.

    I have question for everyone. Solid or verigate yarn. I am donw to 3 skeins. a solid dusky pink, a darek blue and pink verigated or a multi colored yarn.

    And for those of you following the stash buster projects, all the yarn is from my stash.

      If you are on Ravelry you can look at the Traveling Woman pieces already done to get an idea of what it will look like in a variegated yarn. 🙂

    Wonder if I can make this faster on bigger needles and two strands of yarn lol

    I have the yarn and a person in mind who would like the finished product.

    I have only knit, purl, made one and knit two together so far… so I’m scared. I’m pulling out my reference book to learn what sl, ssk and slk2p mean. 🙂

    • January 24, 2010 12:33 AM

      sl = slip. You slip a st to your working needle as if you’re going to purl it but don’t work it.

      ssk= sli, slip, knit. You slip 2 st to your working needle, then put the non-working needle into the FRONT of those two stitches slanting toward your working-needle hand (thereby having your working needle now in the BACK of both stitches) and knit them together. It’s like k2tog but twists the stitches so the decrease slants the opposite way.

      slk2p = slip 1 stitch, knit 2 together, pass the 1st. slipped stitch back over the k2tog stitch. What was 3 st on your needle is now 1 (a double decrease). This is used often in the center of a balanced lace pattern where there is a YO at each end of the pattern repeat, to make up for the 2 yarnovers in ONE decrease stitch and pull the stitches toward the center of the pattern.
