3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / cute kid's tank on: July 21, 2004 09:54:01 PM
I've just finished my second of this pattern: http://maggi.typepad.com/maggistitches/files/tiny_ribby_html.txt

It's a really quick knit, and turns out really cute!
Here's the first one:

And the second, which I modified a bit:

Anyway, it's a really easy, adaptable pattern, so I thought I'd share!

4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / sub for Rowan Biggy Print? on: June 23, 2004 10:17:25 PM
Anyone know of a good sub for Rowan Biggy Print? I'm thinking of Lion Brand Landscapes
( http://www.lionbrand.com/yarns/Landscapes.htm ), but I'd love to hear if anyone has used it, or has any other suggestions.
thanks!

5  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Under the Hoodie-- pocket shaping HELP! on: June 16, 2004 04:35:47 PM
Ok, this is not making sense to me.
Here's what the pattern says:

Shape pocket:

Rows 1 and 3 (RS): Work 5 border sts, ssk, work to last 7 sts, k2tog, work 5 border sticthes.

Rows, 2,4,6 (WS): P across, working first and last 5 sts in border patt.

Row 5 (RS): Knit

Rep rows 1-5 four times more-- 30 shaping rows worked...

Ok, two problems: the first is working those five rows four times more = 20 rows, plus the initial 6, so that's only 26 shaping rows, not 30. ALSO, if you only knit rows 1-5 repeatedly, you'll end up with knit rows back-to-back and have a garter ridge on those rows, which is definitely NOt in the picture.
What did you all do? Am I not seeing something obvious here?

6  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / looking for a halter pattern on: June 12, 2004 06:04:47 PM
Can anyone point me to a good halter pattern? It can't be backless (like Cleo on Knitty), because my sister needs to wear a strapless bra with it. I'm thinking Marilyn-Monroe style with pretty full coverage, more than skimpy.
Any leads would be great!!

7  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / She's cozy crazy! on: May 22, 2004 12:08:36 AM
I'm losing my mind! The beer cozy the other day made me think, really, if *anything* needs cozifying, it's ice cream! I mean, I knoooow I'm not the only one who eats it right out of the container and hates having cold hands!
So, yeah. This happened:

At least I'm getting good at dpns!

9  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Little Black (er, Olive) Top on: May 16, 2004 06:15:08 PM
I finally finished it! My sister requested I make it for her a few months ago, and I took forever making it. I set it aside several times to make other things, since I would just get so sick of it. I don't think I love working with mercerised cotton.

Anyway, it's done! (Well, except I need to crochet belt loops-- the i-cord belt is temporarily pinned on). I used a deep olive cotton, Elann Sonata.



Here's a close-up of the center stitch detail, since it's hard to see.


And here are the beads on the end of the belt:


So, hopefully I can figure out how to crochet my belt loops & button loops tonight!

The pattern is here: http://www.theknittinggarden.com/gallery/aug-free-4.htm

I used Patons Fresco, I think three balls on #11 needles.
 Yayayayayay! I even learned mattress stitch, which seems like freaking magic, if you ask me!
