1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: Embroidered "Moccasins" on: July 26, 2007 09:39:01 AM
Thanks all!   Kiss

I used the pattern on these boots here (the second pattern):
http://www.sunshineknitdesigns.com/new_page_5.htm

I tweaked the pattern a bit for a tighter fit in order to make them more moccasin-like. I ended up running them through the washing machine 3 or 4 times, too. The embroidery was totally made up as I did it. I haven't embroidered anything since I was 4, so it was exciting for me when it came out ok.  Cheesy

I've been craving moccasins, so I made my own. I made sure these are sturdy enough to brave the outdoors.



Felted like crazy and then embroidered free-hand. The soles are recycled from busted slippers.

And on my feet:




They're extremely comfy and warm. Which is good, since I'll be wearing them in Vermont. Although, once the snow hits, I think I'll have to switch to real snow boots. boo Tongue

Well, I did some extensive research online after posting this, and discovered some other people who had the same problems.
So, I think I'm okay now.
Sorry for not doing this research before posting, I was in a state of panic.  Tongue

For anyone who ends up with the same problem, go here for help and read the comments:

4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / HELP! Loop-d-Loop Cabled Riding Jacket on: July 08, 2007 12:00:08 PM
I've been working nonstop on the Loop-d-Loop Riding Jacket (size large) for a week and I'm now on Row 2 of the bodice. Everything was fine until I reached the left front- at which point I found myself one stitch short of the pattern. I have the right number of stitches for the front according to the count after Row 1- 50 stitches. But, I counted the number of stitches needed in row 2 for the left front and it added up to 51.

I have no idea what to do. If I just add a stitch, I don't know where to add it. Is this something I should contact Loop-d-Loop about?

Also, what are the rules on posting some of a pattern here? If I could post Row 2 here, maybe somebody who doesn't have the book could help me?

Thanks in advance...

Really cute.
Maybe if you take some (pink? purple?) scrap yarn and whipstitch around the button holes they wouldn't stretch as much?

I am so doing this sweater as soon as I finish my dad's hat... I was going to wait until I finished the other 2 sweaters that are lying around half done, but my need to make this has overcome my despair over WIPs.
Definately roll collar for me. Or I was thinking possibly a button up turtleneck so I feel less claustrophobic?

Don't be discouraged from buying from handpaintedyarn.com!
I have bought tons of yarn from them (I think half my stash is their yarn), and never have I received yarn with such obvious white spots. Of course, all their colors are slightly variegated due to hand-dyeing, but I have been happy with all my orders.
Although, I'll admit that I've never bought yarn from them dyed with two different colors. So maybe that's the problem.
Also, I've found them to be a bit slow when it comes to replying to email- but always nice.

Aahhh, thanks !! That's just what I wanted to hear !!  Grin
I'm sure their yarns must be nicer in general than the lot I got or people would just know.. I'll still try and re-email them with the order details, I'd love to know whether it was a rejected/on sale lot or something...

But thanks for your input, that'll confort me for future may-be orders from them..  Grin

Yay! I'm glad you're willing to give them another try.
I just took a quick look at their website, and I couldn't find the colorway of your yarn on the merino page. So I'm thinking it's a discontinued colorway...
