I started this little shell this weekend. Its loosely based on my favorite shell pattern, available free here. I've changed it up some though and if it works, I'll post the mods here on the blog. As you can see, I've made it past the waist shaping and the underarm bind off and I'm fixing to start the neckline. The yarn I'm using is Jaeger's Albany which is a cotton ribbon yarn (actually more of a flat tube, so you don't have to worry about it twisting like you do real ribbon yarns). Albany is discontinued but I found it here, and she still has some more. One thing I did learn from this, when you're knitting Stockinette Stitch on autopilot (is there any other way?) and listening to your mini iPod, look down periodically, just to make sure you haven't knit the cords to the headphones along with your yarn. Although it would be cool to have clothes that are plug and play, I don't think they'll be easy to wash. Just wanted to share that as a friendly reminder so that you wouldn't have to rip back several rows to liberate your music from your knitting. Its no fun!

I take it that you started knitting the earphone cords into your shell? I can't say that I've done that, but I have make the cast on tail the working yarn. By the way, we're neighbors of sorts...I'm also from Leesburg. Thanks for the blog and happy knitting!

LOL - wasn't that an item of clothing featured on the last "Apprentice"???

Finally, a knitting mistake I haven't made!
