1  Re: Ferragamo Knit Bag-along? in Knitalongs by jules on: May 14, 2006 12:52:30 PM
Here is my finished fake-a gamo! (Click on image to enlarge)







 I opted not to put the curlicue fringe on the bottom, and I left the edges of the bamboo handles exposed because I like the look better.  Thank you to all and especially to Kate for emailing me the pattern--I would never have had the tenacity to deconstruct this pattern on my own.  I love the resulting handbag and I love Craftster for being there to share it with the world.  What's next?  I'm thinking of a Fakeagamo throw  pillow--with the curlicue fringe all around the sides!

Cheers,
Jules

2  Sage advice from a 1950's housewife(IMG heavy) in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by jules on: April 20, 2006 10:37:53 AM
We've been working on our kitchen for the better part of one year now--when we moved in a year and a half ago, the best adjective to describe the kitchen (and the house really) was deplorable.  So deplorable I only took one pic of the old kitchen:

 
Suffice to say, it was gross. I had  already painted the inside of the cabinets in that photo.   You can't see it, but the fridge was actually positioned in the middle of the room (!) And the old radiator was all rusted out and filthy. And the floor made me shudder.

So we got busy:
New floor:


New paint and curtains:




Here's a closeup of the fabric I used to make the curtains--It's a Michael Miller fabric appropriately named "Fifties Kitchen":


And here's what you've been waiting for--meet "Betty" before pic


And Betty all moved in :



We love her!

Thanks for looking!

If anyone out there can stand another finished ballet pullover, then I humbly submit mine:




I followed the pattern for the long sleeve version from IK summer 04, and added extra inches to the length.  It was an obscenely quick knit, and I love the results.  I'll probably do the short sleeve version for Spring!
Cheers,
Jules

4  Felted "Jinx" Bag! in Knitting: Completed Projects by jules on: December 28, 2005 03:04:30 PM
This bag is modified from the SnB pattern for "laptop bag".  I changed the dimensions so the bag was narrow and deep as opposed to  short and wide.  I also threw out the stripe pattern in favor of my own intarsia design.  I added a zipper, but not the lining yet--thanks for looking!

Oh, yeah, the name "Jinx" comes from  my color palette inspiration--the beer bottle label from "Jinx" beer from Magic Hat Brewing Company!
Cheers,
Jules

jules-

I knitted the bobbles and after bringing the six stitches over the one leg, I gently pulled on my yarn strand to tighten them up.  The next stitch I knitted with a lot of tension (tightly).  I did the same when I was knitting across the back side when I came to the stitch with the bobble.  That significantly helped the hole problem--  I had knit too loosely when I started so they were popping through to the wrong side!
 

These are my bobbles.  When the whole sweater is knitted, it looks great.

Wow, thanks irid3sc3nt, that helps a lot!  Especially the pics.  I'm glad to hear I'm on the right track.  thanks again-Jules  Oh, PS: My husband and I LOVE your avatar!  Is that a photo, or a drawing? Veddy cool.

I CAN'T BELIEVE IT'S FINALLY DONE.



Man, if I had made this in a weekend or two, maybe I'd like it more, but I've been working on this for... (checks blog) TWO FULL MONTHS, which includes that time I was binding off the front, screwed up the DBO2 and the entire freakin' thing unravelled on me.

Okay, I do like it but seriously: F U DBO2.

P.S. I totally can't figure out how to make text links go where I want them to, so here is a bigger photo of the vest in question (http://www.lickr.com/photos/la_famille_rapp/48163754).

gezellig_girl your vest come out great!  Even if it was a bitch to do, it looks terrific on you-love the color!

8  Big Sack sweater in Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller by jules on: April 02, 2004 11:40:54 AM
Hey y'all--here is my take on the Big Sack sweater.  The sizing was a little funky, but I'm pleased w/ the finished project.  I used Jaeger "Chamonix"yarn--a merino wool/angora blend.  Soo soft, and perfect for all this crappy weather we are having in the East.  Cheers!

Here is my version of the Skully sweater.  This is my first  completed sweater ever, and I think it turned out well.  Husband thinks so too, even if his expression doesn't show it.  I also had problems with the armholes being too small, despite what I thought was correct measurements on my part.  My solution was the "idiot solution"--rip out the front and back pieces and re-knit them.  Insane, yes, but worth it in the end.  I also added decreases to the sleeves so they would be tapered, and not hang wide at the bottom.  Go SnB!
