1  2-day summer halter top! LACE! in Knitting: Completed Projects by Keridiana on: July 14, 2005 07:28:59 PM
Hi all, I haven't posted in ages, but I was very busy setting up my new website.  I made up this pattern to sell for a nominal fee.  Do you like it? It was really fun to figure out the diamond -- but I must have started over about a dozen times!  The lace is beautiful -- I'm gonna make a winter scarf out of it soon!

     

The back!

     

Thanks for looking!

Aw, it looks like a yarn store. My stash is in a huge drawer bin with a cardboard box annex.

I just ordered the 25 bags to knit book yesterday.  I hope it helps!

Ok, here goes... here's a pic of my stash taken out of its drawer bin (you can see my obvious color preferences from the pic alone):



Total ball/skein count:  176.  THAT'S RIGHT.

Mostly cottons I got recently (within the last few months), to make the issue sadder still.  Some of it acrylic that's 6 years old left over from my afghan days.  A lot of it is some Bernat handicrafter cotton that is so stiff it is only suitable for dishcloths (which we do not use).  Basically, a lot of blind Internet bargain shopping back when I first took up knitting (approx. 1 year ago). My only consolation is that it was all on sale, and all great bargains [$1- $3/skein/ball is my usual max, except for gifts for other people on which I splurge and get cashmere or merino]. 

The thing is, I am also quite prolific with the needles and hooks (see blog).  I am literally going as fast as I can.  It's just that I keep buying.  HENCE....

I, Keridiana, have a yarn addiction problem.  I hereby pledge to not buy any more yarn NO MATTER WHAT until I use up at least 75% (or 132 balls/skeins) of my Yarn Stash.  (Even if it means April 2007.)

(I can see that some aren't taking me seriously at all.  And maybe some of you will simply pat yourselves in the back because you don't have as much as me, and "stay the course." Oh, well. I'll be a support group of one.)

4  Poor Poor Lizzie - my second attempt at a Spencer in Knitting: Completed Projects by Keridiana on: April 20, 2005 09:24:10 PM
Hello all!  Long time no post, if feels like.  Ok, so I've been tinkering with this 'convertible' Spencer.  The sleeves, as you can see, are removable, so that, being knit in Rowan, it's truly an all-seasons garment!  Color is "melba."  I call it Poor Poor Lizzie after Jennifer Ehle's Spencers in the A&E/BBC Pride and Prejudice production -- not because she ever wears Melba-colored Spencers, but because I tried to consciously mimic the great fit of her Spencers: very tapered the bust, but with short rows for cuppage, somewhat low in the front, and very fitted at the cuffs.  I didn't mimic huge puff sleeves so that I woudn't really look out of date.  There's a diamond lace pattern along the puff of each sleeve, and a diagonal of eyelets along the removable sleeves.  This is my first time using sort rows in a project and I am in love with them!  I worked so hard to make this fit well.  The collar is unfortunately not perfectly even, but maybe I can save it by blocking (this is mostly unblocked).  

OK, ok, enough blab and description.  Now for the pictures!
