1  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Re: The Beginner's Top-Down Raglan (patt. incl.) on: August 06, 2008 05:23:11 AM
I love the color combo on it. It looks fab, but I cringe at the thought of weaving in all those ends. Shivers.

Thanks Smiley

It wasn't too bad; I carried the yarn on the back most of the way. Juggling all the balls of yarn was kind of annoying, though Wink If I had made it one solid colour I'm guessing it could have been finished in half the time.

My first finished sweater Cheesy

I discarded the first one I was working on and started this instead. Much more me.
It's made of black, gold and three different browns in a very random stripey pattern. Mostly acrylic, but also some merino wool. Hope it will survive if I stick to hand washing.



The edges are just garter stitch. The neckline looks a bit funny in this picture, but it's alright.
I like my new sweater Smiley "Too bad" I'll be going to Turkey for a week and won't be able to wear it Wink

Howdy fellow craftsters! I'm a long time lurker and knitter but first time poster and still pretty much a newbie to knitting. I love, love, love this sweater though and decided to make this. So I'm casting on now!  Grin

Go for it Smiley
It's quick, fun and delightfully easy!

Progress Smiley



It actually fits so far, so I'm happy. This is so easy! Cheesy

What about this capelet
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=62184.0

It looks really cute and also warm enough (depending on where you live, of course Smiley)

So.. hello!

After reading the first half of this thread, I decided to begin a raglan of my own - with cheap acryllic from my stash, as a lot of you guys have done.
I'm using 5mm needles and two strands of yarn. I think it will be too stiff, but only time can tell  Wink

If it doesn't work out, I can always do it over, right Smiley

I really like them! What kind of yarn did you use?

Thanks Smiley
It's some sock yarn (wool, acryllic and nylon) in black and "nature".
I carried the yarn on the back all the way, so they are quite thick.
9  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: What Do You Listen To While Knitting? on: July 05, 2008 10:36:07 AM
I mostly listen to audiobooks of all sorts - time seems to go faster that way, and if I didn't listen to them while knitting, I'd bore myself to death, I think Wink

I decided it was time that I invented a pair of socks - this is the result:

From the side:
front:

and bottom:
As you can probably tell, they don't make a perfect couple, because I managed to make the stripes match up better on the second one than on the first.
But I really like them. They are very comfortable and fit my pointy feet very nicely.
