I wanted something bright and crisp for Spring, and this Kaffe Fassett fabric is so pretty, I just had to make something quick. So I improvised this nightie (too short for a dress I think). My man approves! What do you think?
I was given a few skeins of Red Heart Light and Lofty and didn't know what to do with them, until I saw the Kimono Wrap in Glam Knits (Stefanie Japel). I thought that I could modify it to be a cozy robe, and voila, here is the result!
I made this skirt using a piece of wool fabric I got from a thrift store... The pattern is my own improvisation, and I'm really happy with it! The fit is a tad big, but I think it still works... I really had fun with this project, for once, it turned out exactly the way I wanted it to
This cardi is so popular among French knitters, I've been drooling over it, going from blog to blog without being able to get my hands on the pattern (you have to purchase a book, which is only available in this famous French yarn store called "La Droguerie")
So... my only option was to reverse-engineer it from pics and tidbits of info I got from reading people's modifications etc...
I think it's pretty sweet... The buttons are covered with liberty fabric and the yarn is mohair.
This is a belated Christmas present... The pattern is Prairie Boots by Cocoknits, I made mine shorter and added some elastic inside so that they would stay on his feet... The yarn I used is Knitpicks Cadena in Leaf and Mahogany.
I improvised these. I wanted to try sewing with leather, which turned out to be a breeze (I used a special "leather" needle on my sewing machine.) I think they turned out pretty cute! I was debating whether I should embellish them or add laces or something, but since I couldn't come up with any brilliant ideas, I decided to leave them alone for now -- Any suggestions are welcome, though!
I've just finished my Lush and Lacy cardigan (SweaterBabe pattern)! I'm excited about it, I think my mods worked well (I went with a bigger size and made buttonholes so that I could button it all the way down).
I would say this is a very good pattern to venture into lace work. It's very clearly written, too. The yarn is Knitpicks Andean Silk in Slate.
