21  vogue knitting lacy victorian top in Knitting: Completed Projects by lupinbunny on: September 30, 2006 05:27:12 PM


i finished the vogue knitting holiday 05 high neck lace top.
with many a mod (made it longer, made the armholes bigger, made it a wee bit smaller across the bust, changed the ruffle on the armhole).

i love it, but it's a tiny bit big. well, 4 i nches too big in the waist (any ideas to fix that i'd love to hear them).

22  help my knitting not look like warts? in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by lupinbunny on: August 16, 2006 05:37:59 PM
i'm knitting the high neck lace top from vogue, and the bodice pattern has a little polka-dot style stitch in that they call 'knot stitch'. It goes "k1, p1, k1 into 1st; turn, k3 together" after that, i would turn the work again, and knit that stitch again to continue across the row (i don't know if that was right or if i should have slipped the stitch onto the other needle). see?


anyway, they don't look nice. they look like little warts. they stick out too much and are all knobbly.
i'm definitely ripping it out, but i still like the idea of 'polka dots'. so, i was wondering if anyone knows an alternative stitch that is less knobbly.

i also tried some alternative stitches on the top row. from left to right they are: the stitch as directed;
- k1, p1, k1 into 1st; turn, k3 together; turn, slip stitch onto other needle.
- k1, p1 into 1st; turn, k2tog; turn, slip stitch
- k1, p1 into 1st; turn, k2tog; turn, slip stitch. this one is done twice, and i think it is my favourite...

what do you all think?

oo lordy, where DO we start?

i am soooo lazy. i end up getting my hair cut about every 6 months, because i can never be bothered to make an appointment (it needs doing now, but i'm holding off to see if i get a job interview, because that'll affect what haircut  get Wink . though my hairdresser told my mum at her appointment that he wants to give me a bob next (!)).
but my hairdresser is a DOLL. Since his favourite hair model went and gave herself dreads, i have been his experiment.


was when he was giving me 'regular' cuts


that and my user-pic is what happened after i said 'you choose - but i wouldn't mind it assymetric'


and that's after the colour.

right now, my colour is pretty much back to normal, the 'short' side is below my ear and the long side below my shoulders.

24  my candy-gan. First full-sized garment! in Knitting: Completed Projects by lupinbunny on: November 15, 2005 09:06:12 PM
i finished my candygan. The candy cardigan from Knitty.

I'm very proud of it. I had to learn to crochet to do the buttonholes and My! was that a kerfuffle! (i turned my crochet into knitting... i don't know how that's possible).
The cuffs are a bit wonky, i'm not really a fan of them. But I made some adjustments to the body so it fits in the bust (the original was designed for the less-busty gal).
Alterations are in this thread here:

Pictures (i pull a funny face when i take photos, and yes i'm wearing pyjamas Smiley )
