Some responses

I wanted to respond to some comments on my Central Park Copy post.

I'm not sure what the best way to respond to comments is. Personal e-mail? Some people don't leave that information. In the comments section? Maybe people don't go back and read it.


Chemgrrl (I'm assuming that's your blog!):
Yay for running out of yarn!
Hmm, that statement will likely come back to bite me in the ass.
Yes! It will come back to bite you in the ass. Just ask me about my Print O' the Wave. If I ever start a knit-only blog, I will title it "...And then I ran out of yarn"

And exactly how many articles of clothing have you finished while I'm still on the same ol' thing.
Ah, but you must remember I don't have a job. Or kids. And I've always been a really bad housekeeper. All that nervous energy waiting for people to interview me / make decisions / hire me (or not) would kill me if I didn't channel it somehow. And I'm not channelling it into housework, let me tell you.

Great job, I like the collar modification... might have to steal it for my outstanding collar modification! :)
I do like the collar. If I could do it again, I'd make it wider, though. It's 8.5 cm tall, and it should probably be closer to 12 cm. I did a third with the needle I knit the rest of the cardi in, switched to a needle 0.5 mm bigger for another third, and then bigger still for the rest. I wanted it to flare out just a little bit.

Thanks for the update, I've pulled out the collar I was unhappy with, and have already started the new one. I hadn't thought of increasing needle size, and was wondering how long I need it to be! I'll take your advice and make it longer.

Seconding Cheryl´s comment earlier - I´ve no idea how you do it, but that is another beautiful FO. Happy wearing!
