Progress and patterns

This is my progress on Thermal thus far, about 6 inches. I just added the second ball of yarn today. I'm trying to figure out what exactly my yardage is going to be for this. I think that I'll be okay, but I really don't want to run out, since that will mean ordering another ball off ebay, which will be a pain in the butt. I figure that the body will take about three and a half balls, maybe four. Which leaves two for each arm. I'm quite confident that I'll be alright, I just want to be sure!

Speaking of knitty, the new issue is out! If you are checking the main page, and it keeps coming up as the winter edition (which happened for me) then try typing spring07 into where it says winter06 in the browser bar thing, and you'll get it. Or go here.

Of the patterns I will definitely knit Clessidra, and will probably use the images in bmp somewhere, but probably not as socks. I really like the kids patterns, but I just don't have anyone to knit them for, which is a little sad. Dashing is a big option for me, I love fingerless gloves and wear my Endpapers all the time, so it would be cool to have another option. Carolyn looks cool, but I really don't like the big sleeves at all. I wish that there was a better shot of Isabella from the bust down. I have a good idea of what the top looks like, I just have no idea how it fits below that. Which is sad, because the bottom part is what I really like about it. I know that the top of that would look so horrible on me, so I'm not even going to try and think about knitting it, but I might use the bottom in a modified way.

But before I can even think about knitting anything new, there are projects to be finished!

Hi Natalie,

Here's so more shots of Isabella. The bottom has shaping to be fitted.
