1  Re: Fall is coming! Knit along in Knitalongs by epsilon on: October 21, 2007 01:35:00 AM

bf's socks - 20% became cousin's socks (i casted too litle), 30%
knitty danica - just started still on a same place frogged Smiley
circular shrug - 50% (this one is wip for a year or so) still on the same place
sweater for my sister - 75% (just yoke left)85%

i've finished 2 hats for charity, one was in progres for almost a year:) it's odessa hat, but it was coming out to small, so i wasn't motivated, but it was from non-frogable yarn. i'm starting Manly Mitts from Knitty.. i think i'm bit disorganized:)

and the blanket is done:

but i finished a headband that i wasn't planning to make, and i'm crocheting a bag (75%), and making a blanket, it's 1/4 done, but i prefer to think i'm over 1/2 of the radius:))

it's a blanket for cats, and i managed to get my hands on some red heart, and i actually love it. much nicer then acrylics here, i wish i had a ton. and i love this color, i think it's called fall:

i've noticed that none of my friends holds yarn that way, but i don't know which one of us is wrong, my way works for me:)

here they are. i'm not very satisfied, they are a wee bit too big, and i totally winged the heel and strap pattern, the button doesn't match perfectly, and i havent weaved in the ends yet. i think straps are different lengths, or i have different ankles... both is possible:) but they are kinda warm (and  i have cut yarn in small pieces for the front part), so i won't frog them.



leppardess, i think our problem was that we used a really fat yarn for it, so we had just 2 rounds after we stopped decreasing. maybe if we had more rounds, and with thinner yarn, it would work better. i'll try to make them once more, and then i'll decide on the pattern, but it's really not very good written, and i'm a beginner crocheter:)

thank you for the tutorial, here is what i made:
(i wish i knew how to make smaller pictures)





it took me less than half an hour, but i used precut papers, from those office cube notebooks, so it's smaller than yours. for the covers i used some scraps of paper i had lying around, i always feel bad about throwing it away, now i have something to do with them:) i made it for a boyfriend, it's bit too girly, but i think he will like it anyway:)

i think i should join:) so many things to knit, so little time. here is my list:

socks for mom, cousin D., granny, bf
hat for dad, aunt M., bf's dad(?), J., S., Vy.
mittens for bf, Mo.
wristwarmers for D.
toy for Mia
without ideas: sister, bf's mom, Ma, Vt

i have to finish mom's bday socks, and after that i start with some serious knitting:)

there were some changes, first, sister stole aunt M's hat, so she is presentless now:)


socks for mom, cousin D., granny, bf
hat for dad, aunt M., bf's dad(?), J., S., Vy.
mittens for bf, Mo., Vt
wristwarmers for D.
toy for Mia, L.
slippers for sister
without ideas: bf's mom, Ma

and here are the socks:
(no it's not so cold here so i have to wear 2 pairs of socks, and no, i don't have ankles THAT fat, it's just, my mom has pretty wide feet and ankles, so i had to improvize. and i just love that pillowcase, it was made by aunt M, i snatched it from mom, she doesn't like it, she thinks it's too village-y)


they are mismatched at toe Sad and bit at gusset. but i'll just tell her that's so she can tell left sock from right:)) pattern is my own, yarn is some 100% wool that i kool-aid dyed, and since colors are so vivid, i only went with a small cable on the back:



i hope she will like it:)

i might have an idea. you make a bobble of some kind, just make it over more rounds. i mean, increase few times into one stitch, then knit that increase for a few rounds, then decrease back to the old number of stitches.
i don't know will it work:)

edit: i did it! at least something like it, you should knit longer and maybe over a bigger number of sts and rows to get that exact thing, but it seems like my idea works:


here is what i did (seems like scarf is made in garter.

co 9 sts, knit 1 row. you will be making a bobbin from 5th stitch on your needle.
k 4, then increase 5 times into 5th st (i do it k1, yo, k1, yo, k1 and then slip it of the left needle). turn, k5, turn, k to the end of the row.

k4, k5, turn, k5, turn, k to the end of the row

repeat last row untill your bobble is big enough, then on the same side where you did increases, k4, k2 tog, pass next 3 sts over that k2tog, and k4. you have a really bubbly thingy on your needles now:)

i think you do the same thing for the eyes and nose, just shorter bobbles:)

hope that helps

girls, i'm not sure if i understand you well (my english sucks), but i'm guessing you are referring to the fact that irish crochet is sometimes made over the cord/thread, to make it sturdy. i've check my kicka** crochet book (really old croatian one, if somebody wants patterns, ask:)), and these pictures could help:

edit: i could really add those pictures, too:)



if i can see it right, there are 2 strands of thread for the base, and it says in the book to sc over the thread:) for that leaf they also make a thing-that-holds-leaf-on-the-branch (strm? staple? hm.) and they sc around that thread, not chain, so probably you can't chain over the thread:D
it also seems that they just cut the excess thread.

and from some other photo, i can see that they crochet over the startin end of the yarn, but t doesn't say how to weave the ending end (lol:)).

they sometimes also sc the whole chain, not just threads. and i don't mean they sc *in* chain, they just sc all around it.
some nice motifs in the book, too bad i suck at crochet:)
