423  Secret Garden Tam **with pattern** in Knitting: Completed Projects by loudxmouse on: September 05, 2007 05:43:24 PM
based on:

what i came up with:

2 skeins of bernat alpaca chunky  (i would NOT suggest this yarn to anyone, it sheds like a horror) or any chunky yarn about the same gauge:
      3-1/2 ounces (100 grams) 120 yards
      4"=15 stitches on size 10 needles

-CO 80  sts on size 4 circs(this was for a friend with thick hair and a big head, so i would suggest starting with any needle/hat band that you know works for your head or subtracting like 10 stitches from this for a smaller head)
-K10rows in 2x2 ribbing
-Switch to size 8 circs K1 M1 all the way around
-Knit 3 rows
-**P15 K1 ** Repeat between asteriks for infinity rows. basically you are making a verical rib with the knit stitch and large patches of purl between them.
-knit 3 rows and switch back to p15k1
-work for about 8-12" depending on how big you want it.
-k2tog all around for 2 rows
-break yarn leaving a 12" tail. weave tail through live sts and pull tight.

-sew on a big fat pom pom (i used patons shetland chunky for it)

-be contrary and find a garden

424  plying with thread questions (a few pictures of the WIP as well) in Spinning: Discussion and Questions by loudxmouse on: August 20, 2007 12:19:52 PM
so, i started a new spinning project (merino and silk) and decided to spin it thin, like a Dk with some slubs and fun throughout. As I spun i realized this would be PERFECT for a clapotis for my mom (i have enough roving to make the desired yardage and she would adore the color) Of course this would mean keeping it as singles. I have never done this and am afraid of it just disintegrating, especially where the slubs are. so i am toying with the idea of plying it with thread.
my question is:
is this a good idea and if so what kind of thread should i use?
can someone assure me that this will not just fall apart in the middle of my clapotis?

and some pictures so far

427  my 1st spinning project, drop spindle in Spinning: Completed Projects by loudxmouse on: May 10, 2007 10:06:20 AM
my friend taught me to use my drop spindle 1st with some terrible, stiff, bubblegum pink roving that i HATED. After i used that I bought a large ball of wool/mohair roving and went to town.
three days later this is what i had. I spun small peacock feathers into it as I went Wink

Now i am currently spinning a merino/silk blend that is like buttah. My boyfriend truly loves me and feeds my new addiction

i thought people gave me weird looks knitting on the bus.
