3661  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: WIP Wednesday 6/23 - Show off your in progress knitting projects here! on: June 24, 2010 02:58:03 PM
It's off a Vogue pattern - #13 Ruffle Edge Wrap by Lisa Daehlin (links to Ravelry).  And had I realized how it is to knit with mohair, I may not have bought it. Wink  I was lured by the softness.

And capelet sounds a lot better than sharf!  Cheesy  A capelet it is.

So I was all excited to share my WIP and then what'd I do?  Forget to.  Oops.  But here it is now, a day late!



It's a flouncy little shawlish thing ... not quite a shawl (too narrow) but wider than a scarf.  So ... Sharf?  Yes, it's a sharf. Cheesy  I originally bought the yarn to crochet a sweater with, got started (as in the first few loops) and then realized that my crochet talents are not strong enough to crochet with the thick-and-thin merino/alpaca/mohair fuzziness.  So I switched to what I thought would be a quick pattern.  And perhaps it would be, if I worked on it consistently.  I started it back after Christmas on my train trip ... ah well. It'll get done for this coming winter, I hope.  I also plan on knitting some flowers and putting white seed pearls in the center of them and putting those on the sharf, too, to make up for the thinnish spots where the thin meets thin or where it looks like I did something wrong (but of course I didn't, right?).

Live and learn, right? Smiley

lapoli - I love washcloths too!  They're very relaxing to make, once you get the pattern down, and awesome for gifts. I love your idea of putting it with homemade soap, too!

LimeRiot - Eep.  That is a bummer about the needle, but the colors of the blanket are awesome!  I hope you can work out the gauge problem!

I finished the main part of rottenlittleboys' package!  WOOT!  In that process I became intimately acquainted with my seam ripper.  In fact, I know it so well, it's demanding its own name.  Suggestions?

My seam ripper thinks it's name is g0d d@mn m0th3rf*******, since that's what I say over and over while I rip it. We've spent some quality time together this morning. Smiley

Ha!  Yes.  After the second time putting something on wrong (in two different ways, so at least I learn from my mistakes, right?) I was very close to calling it that too!

Now to figure out how to do part B and if the other bit of the package will come together into something I would want to receive, if I were rottenlittleboys.  We shall see on that score!

Hi Frugal Ladies,

I have a question and have tried using the search function, but it mocks me.  Did someone here (I think it was here) use contact paper to make fabric wipe-able with a sponge for sandwich wraps/snack bags?  And if not, what did you use?

Thanks!

Hmm, what about 'something found at a thrift store' or something similar?  It's general, but it could get a wide variety of items.  Or a pillow cover, an old blanket, old jewelry/beads ...

And just as a suggestion, I think a picture of the materials before being made into a bag would be a cool addition to the final product. Cheesy
