1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Finished Jaywalker Socks! on: February 15, 2006 08:55:35 AM

2  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Jaywalker Socks KAL on: January 01, 2006 02:25:07 PM
Hi everyone! Happy New Year!!!

I noticed there was no craftster KAL for Grumperina's famous Jaywalker Socks, so I figured we need one!

Cara at January One  is hosting a KAL on her blog but there isn't a place to post questions if you need help. Don't forget to stop by and wish her a Happy Birthday!

For those of us (like me!) who've never knit socks before, let's do this thing together Smiley (And I may need help when I get to the heel...)

Here's my progress so far:

I'm using Vesper Sock Yarn on size 1 DPNs.

So, if you haven't cast on yet, what are you waiting for???
3  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Winter Knitty's Best Friend on: December 07, 2005 07:06:47 PM
I am IN LOVE with this pattern from the winter knitty!  The biggest problem is that the yarn required (albeit only one ball) is $55 a ball!!!!!!

I haven't looked into subs yet, but is anyone interested in knitting this with me? Gotta start now if you wanna finish in time for NYE!!!

I love it so much I posted in my blog about it.
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Anthropologie-inspired capelet - Pattern + Tutorial! on: November 07, 2005 10:21:44 PM
Have you seen this capelet from Anthropologie's Winter '05 collection? I think I figured out the pattern...Here are some photos of my interpretation, and the pattern. It's really easy (I started on Saturday!)




I used 1 balls of Rowan Polar on size 11 needles. (gauge = 12 st and 16 rows over 4)

CO 49 st
1 x 1 rib for 2 inches to create neckline

Raglan Increases: (you will need 4 stitch markers to separate the body into 5 sections: left front, left sleeve, back, right sleeve, right front)

Row 1, RS: k2, p6, yo, pm, p1, yo, p7, yo, pm, p1, yo, p15, yo, pm, p1, yo, p7, yo, pm, p1, yo, p6, k2
Row 2 and all WS rows: knit all stitches
Row 3 and all RS rows: k2, *p to next marker, yo, sl marker, p1, yo* repeat from * 3 more times, p until last 2 st, k2

Continue raglan increases until sleeve measures the circumference of your upper arm. End with a WS row.

Split sleeves and body:
RS: k2, p to 1st marker, move all st from 1st to 2nd marker onto scrap yarn (right sleeve).  P to 3rd marker.  Move all st from 3rd to 4th marker onto another piece of scrap yarn (left sleeve). P to last 2 st, k2.
WS: Knit all st
Continue in reverse stockinette stitch for 4 more rows
Switch to 1 x 1 rib, for 5 rows. BO all st

Sleeves:
Pick up all st from scrap yarn.
Work back and forth in 1 x 1 rib for 5 rows. BO all st
Seam ribbing on sleeves

Thats it, youre done!  This is easy, I swear! 
Finish with a pin at the neck, or sew a button on, whatever you want!
The other cool thing about this, is its reversible! I like the reverse st side better, its more vintage looking.

Here are some detail shots:


Thanks for looking!

Edit: oops...late night stitch counting leaves one (very important one) out...and adds one where it doesn't belong!
5  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Phildar Tendances KAL! on: October 29, 2005 11:36:09 AM
Hello!  There are a bunch of us who have been eyeing this sweater for a while. So, I bit the bullet and ordered the magazine (Phildar Tendances '05-'06) with the French pattern from www.knitandtyme.com.

Here it is in all it's Phldarrific glory!



Yarn gauge is 19 sts-27 rows=4" using U.S. 6-8 Needles, but the pattern asks for size 4 needles.

If you're interested in joining, please email me at julsey723[at]gmail[dot]com.  I don't speak a word of french, so if you do, it would help - but this one is pretty simple to tranlsate (thanks to Babelfish!)

8  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / First completed crochet project - evening bag on: September 05, 2005 05:22:44 PM
Hello!  I've been a knitter for a year or so, and I saw a bag I really wanted to make, so I started this crochetalong: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=50746.0

I had no idea how to crochet, so I tried a mini version...



It doesn't look anything like the original, but I'm proud to have a finished crocheted project!  Now, empowered, I can move on to bigger things! 

See my blog for details: http://peonyknits.blogspot.com/
9  CROCHET / Crochetalongs / DORMANT: Ferragamo Bag on: August 28, 2005 10:17:54 PM
Hi - I'm new to crochet, and am trying (patiently) to figure out a pattern for the body of this bag:



Ferragamo was selling it for oh, $1400...I don't really have that much cash, so why not make it myself?

Anyone interested?

-Julia
