1  a new bag for spring. in Knitting: Completed Projects by pinkyswear on: May 08, 2008 06:25:44 PM


It's been a while since I posted a FO on here but I am super proud of this one because I got to use my new sewing skills for a proper lining, too.

The pattern is the Counterpane Carpet Bag from Handknit Holidays by Melanie Falick. One of my favorite knitting books--I recommend it even if you are an atheist!

The yarn is Noro Iro.

The handles are 9" bamboo.

I received today from astormorray! So exciting. I love everything, especially the pink needles and amazingly gorgeous and soft handpsun. The circular needle holder is already being filled up. Cheesy

She used pretty fabric and the coolest pink button closure for my needle holder


She also sent pink straights, pink circulars and some hello kitty cards!


This beaded knit badge has a pin on the back.


She sent me four different handspuns--five skeins! I kinda piled it into a mess for the pic, sorry.


I also got a bunch of knitting magazines, and a pattern for handwarmers she wrote herself. I've already found a bunch of patterns in the magazines I want to make.


I am super pleased with this swap! I would do it again in an instant.

3  blythe-sized poncho [with free pattern link] in Knitting: Completed Projects by pinkyswear on: December 19, 2007 05:09:51 PM
I know, I know. I was always one of those people who said ponchos were evil. But it looks cute on my doll and goes with her seventies vibe. I wrote up the pattern and it is available for free on my website here.



I used Koigu KPPM and size 3 needles, magic-loop. Thanks for looking and I'd love some feedback!

I got my package from miss_k yesterday and I am so pleased with it! I loved swapping with her so much that we're doing it again!



Originally, she picked my theme of writing which is why she decoupaged this gorgeous notebook with batik fabrics and used gold metallic to decorate boxes on some pages. She even wrote me a list of prompts.



Then she switched to my theme of travel, but the notebook can easily fit into that theme too. I love journaling about the trips I take! She made these three bags for me because I admire sewing and quilting. The sparkly heart fabrics are sooo me, I couldn't have picked it out better myself!The rectangular bag is for cosmetics and the triangular one is for crafting supplies.



This is an undies bag. I never would have thought to craft this, but she mentioned how she thought it was so icky that they search your bag and this way your unmentionables can stay safe and sound! The lining and ribbon detail is so perfect.



Here's my little luggage tag. It's adorable and everyone needs one!

6  sorcery slippers in Knitting: Completed Projects by pinkyswear on: October 02, 2007 08:06:31 PM
I think this pattern is magical because you would never know they work as slippers until you slip them on. it's just increasing + ribbing + decreasing= slippers.


I made these with modifications from Miss Twiss's blog as a present. They worked out perfectly. I used exactly one skein of Plymouth Suri Merino from the stash and some plastic buttons. A pic of my next pair already in progress can be found on the blog.

7  Rhinebeck Sweater Knitalong in Knitalongs by pinkyswear on: September 20, 2007 05:00:12 PM
I know I'm not the only one trying to finish a knitted sweater for Rhinebeck! I tried last year with my CPH, but was unsuccessful. Will this be my year to come out on top? I hope so. I'm making the Cabled Cardigan from Runway Knits and I have done the back, left front and half a sleeve.



I love me some short row cables.

Is anyone else knitting something to wear to Rhinebeck?

8  my so-called cabled capelet in Knitting: Completed Projects by pinkyswear on: September 10, 2007 01:12:05 PM


That's the cabled capelet by Teva Durham. It was such a quick knit on size 19's, using all three of her new yarns. I highly recommend it! The pattern is free here although the chart is missing one symbol. The v with a dot on top is a purl front and back. I started during a workshop I took with Teva on Saturday and was done on Sunday.

My favorite thing about it is the fact that that is not a real cable. It's actually increases and decreases! There are also faux seams.

More info is on my blog, if you're interested.
