I've finished the greeny blue Forest Canopy now too. It's 15 repeats, and it grew from 45 inches by 24 to 75 inches wide by 36 inches deep. It's much heavier yarn than the first: it's sock yarn (Blue-Faced Leicester sock yarn from Fyberspates) but it must be for boot socks as it's about double knitting weight, and I used 6.5mm needles. I was trying to squeeze another pattern repeat out of the yarn, but I decided to rip it back and make longer pointy bits on the border instead, which I'm very happy with. I had a satisfactorily tiny bit left over.
Australian readers might be amused to see what I used to soak it: this is wonderful stuff, imported to the UK by Lakeland. I think I've got the need to knit a larger shawl out of my system for the moment and I'm willing to go down a needle size or two. Judith suggested the Swallowtail, which I have looked at in the past and thought, 'Oh I couldn't possibly knit that,' but now I'm beginning to wonder. It would suit that Schaefer Anne yarn, which I now seem to have wound into a ball. My new lace needles haven't arrived yet, so I am paused. I'm still intending to do Icarus, just having a dither about the yarn - can't decide whether to do fuzzy or plain.
A commenter in Germany has asked about knitting rips in a sweater. I think the method used in patterns is to make a stitch where you want the bottom of the rip to be, knit it in subsequent rows, and then when it's long enough, drop the stitch and rip it down - it won't rip further than the row where you made it in the first place. I didn't like the appearance of that in All Seasons Cotton, so I just knitted a column of purl stitches instead.
When she Was Knitting has done the Movie Meme. I'm still working on my list for this.
