I'm still here for a little while - moving up to Washington! But for the next few months, I'll be in Glendale, and would love to get some crafting time in. :-)

Wow. I like this purple one. Nutella, how on earth did you put the beads in it? And the colour... Just fantastic.

Thanks! I used Regia Stretch and overdyed the yarn with purple - the variegation was already there, but the yarn was tan and blue, definitely not the colors Altair liked (nor me, the purple is exactly right!)

I put the beads on individually - adding them to each stitch - rather than stringing them on the yarn and pulling up the bead as I needed it. I liked the way they laid on the fabric much better that way.

If I had it to make over again (especially for someone who isn't into super-wide chokers) I'd have only done one center "ribbon" and I would have done it in a yarn that allowed more aggressive blocking, so the zig-zag pattern could show up even more.

Altair, I'm so glad you like! I used the pattern from the Lace Ribbon on knitty: http://knitty.com/ISSUEspring08/PATTlaceribbon.html

Altair's choker is off in the mail to her - I have pics of it on my end, so when she receives we can both post.  Grin

I just overdyed the base material I'm using (note my lack of specificity... sneaky me!) and I'm just pleased as punch at how it came out! The colors are exactly what I was hoping for.

Now to finish that last term paper so I'm not procrastinating by doing my craftin'!

Thanks for the invite!

I have a bit of a... thing... about tight things around my neck, so I'd be in if I could ask that it either be really stretchy or be more of a collarbone-lay-flat type of choker?

Thanks for the invite to join in!
9  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Re: Knitty's Starsky Knit-A-Long? on: August 18, 2007 06:25:55 PM
dancing with myself here...  Cheesy

I have two sleeves and a belt done! I've done the math to knit the back and sides as one piece, dividing for the armholes, and I'm about 6 1/2 inches into the bottom ribbing (hey, 144 stitches in 3x3, it's a small scarf!). The pattern calls for only 3" of ribbing, but I really like the look of the wider ribbing, and knit until I was tired of it.

Now I'm trying to decide what to do for the body. I don't want to do the banana leaf cable, and I *really* want some shaping in there. Not sure if I should stick with ribbing and just change up the count (2x2? 5x1?) or Frankenstein something like the "weekend pullover" into it to get appropriate shaping.

A pickle. A quandry.

Good thing I have another Red Scarf Project scarf to keep my fingers busy while I decide.

craftADDchick- that fabric is fabulous! The whole bag is really lovely. I think it's funny that you didn't use a pattern either. Bags are so cool- with just a little bit of math, it just *works*!
