1  long lost blog update in Knitting: Completed Projects by karenie on: February 01, 2009 03:18:46 PM
so, my blog sat ignored for, oh, 2 years? and in the fine art of procrastination, i updated tonight. so, check out http://knitterlyfashion.blogspot.com/2009/02/hm.html if you want...

here's a taste of the f.o. that were posted:

this is the debbie bliss teddy from simply baby, in sock yarn. this little guy was fast to knit (he's about 8" tall) and a lot of fun. putting the face on gave him so much character!


this is the michael kors aran tee from VK holiday '05 - i planned to make it for 2 years, and then it was in progress for another two. i steamed through the last half though, and if i'd been really working on it, it would have take 3 weeks, maybe. it's a little wide in the shoulders, but i like it - knitpicks wool of the andes in pumpkin.


and this is my baby, eunny jang's wave stole - it's absolutely huge, knit in knitpicks baby alpaca laceweight, it turned out to be nearly 7 feet long. it went fairly quickly for such a complicated piece, but it is worth it. so soft! i don't know when i'll go for the lace again, but it was a great challenge.


thanks all! hopefully i will be around more, i used to be such a lurker.

an update on my progress, if anyone is interested:
i grafted together the two centre panels yesterday, finally, and am quite pleased despite some early hiccups in the lace pattern, on my part.

here it is, stretched out along the back of my sofa:

i would love to try and figure out the stitch pattern for that pillow, is there any way we could request a picture of the pillow itself? Wink

i live to please!
i didn't knit this, but bought it, so i have no idea what the stitch pattern is, but here are some pictures:

the front:


the back:


the button:


the stitch pattern close-up:




the whole thing is about 18" wide, with two buttons. to me, it looks like an offset seed stitch, but you are all welcome to have at it.

4  twice as nautie (edited to add pictures of display pillow on 2nd page) in Knitting: Completed Projects by karenie on: June 03, 2006 09:39:52 AM
my sister is a marine biology educator, and her birthday is coming up, so what is better than a couple of nauties, i ask?





i used cotton yarn that was on sale at romni (toronto), and mother of pearl and black buttons for the eyes. too cute! i love them. they looked so creepy without the tentacles, though.

the yarn for this came in the mail today, it is so beautiful and soft and light and yum. so i immediately made a yarn ball (which went well until crazy tangling at the end. i need a swift). that ball of 440 yards fits in the palm of my hand, slightly bigger than a tennis ball. i may have coo-ed at it.
i love it. i probably won't get a chance to really start until march, but i am so excited.


the picture is a bit dark, the yarn is a tad lighter than that.

6  spring fling (in february? huh.) in Knitting: Completed Projects by karenie on: February 08, 2006 05:54:50 PM
is that sort of like christmas in july?
anyway.
so, obviously, i have been working on this baby off and on since the pattern came out. oi. but i am finally finally done. just in time for winter term reading week. and you know, i really like it!
i moved the hooks (2 of them) down, because i find that anything that opens over my belly just makes me look a little pregnant. and i think i made the sleeves a few inches longer, but that was only because i wasn't paying attention at the time Smiley
good to be finished, though.





sorry for the mirror pictures! (wow, i need to get out the windex, huh?)

8  finally, hat weather in Knitting: Completed Projects by karenie on: October 09, 2005 08:17:08 AM
i was in the need of a little instant gratification knitting, and i had this beautiful wool in the woods (llama/wool) kicking around, so the cross hat-ch was the perfect solution. that, and it is just now cool enough in toronto to justify knitted things, yay!

9  teddy bears (minus the picnic) in Knitting: Completed Projects by karenie on: June 28, 2005 02:40:06 PM


oddly, the weird-er looking one with the big head (on the left) is the one that i did 2nd. but i think they are cute. they are from simple knits for cherished babies, and such fun to knit. they are really little, just over 6" each.

10  Stitch Diva Casual Glamour Capelet in Knitting: Completed Projects by karenie on: May 29, 2005 07:25:52 AM
i am finallly done, yay! i think i would use a lighter yarn with more drape if i were to do it again (i used red heart misty, as it's what i had), but i like it. toward the end i thought i was never going to finish -- it's huge at the end!
