Slip Stitch Sampler Throw Reviewed by Pat Young on 2013-12-01 *****
I made this BEFORE the corrections were imposed. I would rate this without the corrections a one star because of the pattern errors. But visually it is a 5 star and if the pattern is now corrected it would be stunning. Now I know why some of my blocks were not accurate-- This throw is beautiful anyway-- I was able to 'doctor' the joinings to make it acceptable but given the amount of time and expense involved, I think this pattern should have been better proofed before it was posted for use. It certainly was not up to my normal knitting-- Not something I would give as a gift but certainly usable in my own home. I did line the back to finish it off cleanly.

Question re finishing Reviewed by Janet Crews on 2013-07-31 ****
Did any of you "kill" the acrylic? This is only the second project I've done with acrylic. I love this blanket - so soft and warm. But it's destined for my son's bachelor apartment. If it has to be washed again, all the tutorials indicate it will bounce back to the original un-square size. If I go through the steps to kill the acrylic, will that ruin the blanket.



(Love this pattern!!)

I really enjoyed doing this though I ended up on different size needles and used 8 ply wool. I actually dyed quite a lot of the yarn because I had a large stash of white and cream yarn. I love the fished product, the color selection worked really well.

started jan 12, finished march 4. but didn't knit everyday. I liked this pattern, but I changed log 2 to basketweave pattern, since it isn't a slip stitch pattern anyway. I edged the throw in I cord, using purple. I will make another one, but not for a while, because it takes a lot of your time and I want to knit other things. Next time i will use wool ease yarn cos I like wool better.

I love,love,love this afghan. It is fun to knit and goes up very quickly, I', always looking forward to see what the next color combination looks like. I used size 10 needles and didn't knit the first square for the 13 in. as in the directions. The square would have been a rectangle. My square turned out to be 11 in. When knitting the logs, I made them 3 1/2 in. instead of 4 in. I used the prescribed number of stitches. The squares came out to be about 22 1/2 in.
Instead of putting the stitches on a stitch holder, I put them on a long circular needle. It was easier to just knit them off the circular needle instead of having to transfer them from a holder.

KNIT THIS AFGHAN, you'll have lots of fun!

I made this for myself because I thought it was a very sophisticated design and I wasnt sure anyone would like the color combination as much as I. Took awhile so if you like to knit quickly-this isnt your baby. It is beautiful. The gemstone colors are lovely and the design is gorgeous. I hated the light blue, but in the context of the afghan-it works! The one color I would change is the yellow. It is too bright- what i refer to as a naked color and stands out like a sore thumb. I would use a darker gold, maybe a bronze color.

I am almost done with this project. I did not like the way one of the logs was turning out. I decided to repeat a pattern in another log but with the colors of the log I was replacing. I also didn't like the way the back turned out and the way the edges wanted to curl. So, I chose the rust yarn and kind of followed log 2 for the entire back. I am now in the process of binding the sides and quilting it together. I think I should be finished with this by the beginning of March. At that time if I can follow my notes, I will post all of my corrections and a photo.

In closing, I felt this was a challenge for me and it is turning out beautifully. I usually give my blankets away....but....this took me so long and it is so beautiful that I am keeping this one. I also followed the colors shown and wasn't sure when I started this....but, it is beautiful. I also used a size 10 needle.

The squares came out very uneven. I was not able to finish because of this.

Slip Stitch Sampler Throw Reviewed by Melody Mann on 2013-01-06 *****
I learned to knit just so I could make this throw. It is beautiful. Unfortunately, I had completed all 6 squares when I saw that a correction had been made for the third log, which would certainly explain why my squares aren't. Square, that is. Hopefully, blocking will disguise this issue. Otherwise, even as a novice knitter, I was able to follow the directions and complete the project. I'll definitely attempt it again.
