1  Re: First Sweater Support Group in Knitalongs by Tere on: May 30, 2005 05:04:24 AM
Hi everyone! I'm about to take the plunge into first-sweater land so I thought I'd join on up.

First I have to say that I LOVE the sweaters you guys have pulled off so far. I've even been inspired by your fairly easy fair isle cardigans and have decided that's it's just the little number to help me to the other side.
I was going to do the unisex knock-around cashmere pullover from Weekend Knits, but I just wasn't sure if I'd like the FO. These things always look so nice on the model but you never know how it's going to end up on my rotund little belly. I can't decide whether the strip around the middle would be flattering or bulking.
So thenI notice the yarn I bought for the sweater is the same gauge as the cardigan, so why not?

Here's the yarn I got:


The blue is the base colour. The other colours I scrounged last minute after I decided the switch to the cardigan. The yarn is discontinued and was in the sale bin, so these were the only colours left. Any suggestions on how to arrange the colours in the cardigan? Is it possible to put a different yarn in (as long as it's similar gauge and fiber content?)

Tell me what you think!

I think it will look very nice Smiley But did I read correctly that Patons Up Country is being discontinued!!?? That was the only bulky gauge wool yarn I could find around here that was affordable  Cry

2  "Purple" Haze, 1st sweater! in Knitting: Completed Projects by Tere on: February 27, 2005 03:23:32 AM
Here's my first sweater, a pale turquoise version of Purple Haze from Knit Wit. I made a few adjustments (more details and thoughts about the pattern can be found on my blog), and added the buttons because I thought it had a retro feel. I had some issues with the seaming (ugly) but blocking made things a bit less noticeable.

You can sort of see the collar here. It goes around the back of the neck.

Thanks for looking, guys Smiley

3  Red Cord Messenger in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Tere on: February 19, 2005 08:46:30 AM
Hey guys,
here is my first attempt at a bag and at sewing by machine. I did not use a commercial pattern because I'm not sure I would be able to understand those yet, but instead just cut a pattern from cardboard. I added the piping as the last step, but I screwed it up a bit as I had difficulty sewing the outer fabric, lining and piping at once. Anyway, what do you think?




Thanks for looking Smiley

I used Araucania wool and Noro Kureyon #138 for this one.  I also made i-cord handles.  The bag looks much better in person.  It's mainly magenta, purple and red with streaks of orange, deep purple and lime green. 

I LOVE these colours!! What a beautiful bag  Tongue Wow...really great.

8  Rowan "Floss" in Knitting: Completed Projects by Tere on: January 09, 2005 11:29:12 AM
Here are a few pics of "Floss" I recently completed. It was a fun, quick project, the pattern was great and straight forward, and I loved the yarn (Polar), however, I definately would have used smaller needles had I realized how much Polar can change (for the bigger) when blocked. Gertie you warned me, I know...Smiley I think I may have to rig up some kind of drawstring around the top, as my boobs aren't holding it up much. Thanks for looking!

Hey guys, here are a few things from Last Minute Knitted Gifts:
Here is an ear-flap hat for my stepfather. I used Manos Del Uruguay and some scraps of something else (Briggs and Little, I think).


Here is one of Kim's hats for my mum, also in Manos-I love this yarn, its beautiful and it even smells good!

These are the women's wrist warmers, also for my mum. Once I wrapped my head around the thumbhole, it was really fun to knit.


Thanks
