1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / long lost blog update on: February 01, 2009 03:18:46 PM
so, my blog sat ignored for, oh, 2 years? and in the fine art of procrastination, i updated tonight. so, check out http://knitterlyfashion.blogspot.com/2009/02/hm.html if you want...

here's a taste of the f.o. that were posted:

this is the debbie bliss teddy from simply baby, in sock yarn. this little guy was fast to knit (he's about 8" tall) and a lot of fun. putting the face on gave him so much character!


this is the michael kors aran tee from VK holiday '05 - i planned to make it for 2 years, and then it was in progress for another two. i steamed through the last half though, and if i'd been really working on it, it would have take 3 weeks, maybe. it's a little wide in the shoulders, but i like it - knitpicks wool of the andes in pumpkin.


and this is my baby, eunny jang's wave stole - it's absolutely huge, knit in knitpicks baby alpaca laceweight, it turned out to be nearly 7 feet long. it went fairly quickly for such a complicated piece, but it is worth it. so soft! i don't know when i'll go for the lace again, but it was a great challenge.


thanks all! hopefully i will be around more, i used to be such a lurker.
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / twice as nautie (edited to add pictures of display pillow on 2nd page) on: June 03, 2006 09:39:52 AM
my sister is a marine biology educator, and her birthday is coming up, so what is better than a couple of nauties, i ask?





i used cotton yarn that was on sale at romni (toronto), and mother of pearl and black buttons for the eyes. too cute! i love them. they looked so creepy without the tentacles, though.
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / spring fling (in february? huh.) on: February 08, 2006 05:54:50 PM
is that sort of like christmas in july?
anyway.
so, obviously, i have been working on this baby off and on since the pattern came out. oi. but i am finally finally done. just in time for winter term reading week. and you know, i really like it!
i moved the hooks (2 of them) down, because i find that anything that opens over my belly just makes me look a little pregnant. and i think i made the sleeves a few inches longer, but that was only because i wasn't paying attention at the time Smiley
good to be finished, though.





sorry for the mirror pictures! (wow, i need to get out the windex, huh?)

4  KNITTING / Knitalongs / eunny jang's print o' the wave stole on: February 05, 2006 07:49:53 PM
hey everyone!
my sister is getting married this summer, and i wanted to do something special for her, so i'm going to make eunny's print o' the wave shawl - http://www.eunnyjang.com/knit/2005/12/print_o_the_wave_stole.html - and i figured that i'd see if there was anyone else that wanted to work on it with me!
i'm doing the lace weight version, as i haven't done a lot of lace knitting and frankly, the cobweb weight frightens me. i've just ordered alpaca cloud in horizon - http://www.knitpicks.com/yarns/itemid_5420108/yarn_display.aspx , and can't wait to get started!
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / free kneesock pattern? on: October 25, 2005 01:20:26 PM
hey all!
i have a craving to make knee-socks, anyone have a favourite free pattern? a favourite soft and cozy sock yarn?
thanks!
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / finally, hat weather on: October 09, 2005 08:17:08 AM
i was in the need of a little instant gratification knitting, and i had this beautiful wool in the woods (llama/wool) kicking around, so the cross hat-ch was the perfect solution. that, and it is just now cool enough in toronto to justify knitted things, yay!

7  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / teddy bears (minus the picnic) on: June 28, 2005 02:40:06 PM


oddly, the weird-er looking one with the big head (on the left) is the one that i did 2nd. but i think they are cute. they are from simple knits for cherished babies, and such fun to knit. they are really little, just over 6" each.
8  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / teddy bear noses on: June 15, 2005 06:04:57 PM
i am cross-posting this with the embroidery boards, as i am a knitter and at the moment he is faceless! i understand french knots for the eyes, but am struggling through the nose. his head is already stuffed as per the instructions, but i feel like this is just making things harder -- i keep getting stuffing in the stitches, making his nose too fat and round -- and the knitted fabric is just pulling together, which means that he has a little round, beady nose! anyone got a suggestion? i really appreciate it.
9  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / teddy bear noses on: June 15, 2005 06:03:44 PM
i am cross-posting this with the knitting boards, as i am a knitter mostly, but i am attempting to knit a teddy. at the moment he is faceless, though! i understand french knots for the eyes, but am struggling through the nose. his head is already stuffed as per the instructions, but i feel like this is just making things harder -- i keep getting stuffing in the stitches, making his nose too fat and round -- and the knitted fabric is just pulling together, which means that he has a little round, beady nose! anyone got a suggestion? i really appreciate it.
10  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Stitch Diva Casual Glamour Capelet on: May 29, 2005 07:25:52 AM
i am finallly done, yay! i think i would use a lighter yarn with more drape if i were to do it again (i used red heart misty, as it's what i had), but i like it. toward the end i thought i was never going to finish -- it's huge at the end!
