I love it! I never thought of the possibilities of this pattern until I saw your version. Great job!

3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: blocking unfinished lace on: March 31, 2007 06:26:28 PM
I've blocked unfinished lace before and it's worked out just fine. I just put what I had on a piece of white (or any color that you know won't bleed) yarn, soaked it, and pinned it out. I just made sure the piece of yarn I put it on was long enough that it wouldn't fall off the stitches while soaking. Easy peasy.

Thanks guys!

Jejune: I had a gift certificate to kpixie, so I could finally splurge on 5 skeins of this lovely yarn!

iridescent: I'm all about the vertical lines!  Wink

Here's my take on the Lacy Hug-Me-Tight from Tracey Ullman and Mel Clark's Knit 2 Together:



This was a bit of a challenge only because I redesigned a lot of the details to suit my taste. Other than that, the pattern was just loads and loads of k2, p2 ribbing! I used Blue Sky Alpacas' Alpaca & Silk, which is my current favorite yarn, so I loved worked on this even when I was frustrated with design elements!

More details and pictures can be found on ye olde blog.

I love it! I'm going to have to go back and give this pattern a second look. Thanks!

He's adorable! I have a friend who's making one right now, and it's tempting me to make one myself.

Here's a Sheldon gallery if you want to seen a ton of Sheldons: http://www.flickr.com/photos/85066113@N00/sets/72157594463364205/

I love Lorna's Laces and Austermann Step (it has aloe and jojoba oil in it which condition your hands while you're knitting and your feet while you're wearing!)

Also, I made a pair of socks for my dad for Christmas out of KnitPicks Essential and didn't find it to be rough or splitty at all. In fact, it was so soft I was a bit worried that it would pill very quickly. I haven't heard from my dad if he had a problem with that though. Do you think they changed the yarn over time at all?

I love it! The Adventure Bag pattern has been on my wish list for awhile now, so I'm glad to see yours came out so well. Smiley
10  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: Would you wear this? on: February 01, 2007 08:28:01 AM
I would wear it! In fact, I'm making something very similar to it right now - the Lacy Hug-Me-Tight from Tracey Ullman/Mel Clark's Knit 2 Together book. Rather than flared sleeves, their version just has a lace edging. I actually don't like their lace eding though, so I'm doing a different kind of lace - same idea though.

If you're worried about it looking too "granny-esque", maybe try wearing some a funky necklace or bracelet that no granny would wear!
