I haven't posted here in a loooooooong time but I had to share this project I just finished. My sister requested hats from me that she can use in her photo studio and this is one I came up with. Comments welcome!

5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Question on Ribbed Lace Bolero on: July 20, 2007 12:50:00 PM
Thanks, Tragic Heroine, for a great pattern first of all. This will keep me warm in air conditioned environments!

I've never done cables before, so I hope someone can help. The instructions say:

p1 (c1f [p into the stitch that was moved behind, k into the stitch that was moved in front], c1b [k into the stitch that was moved in front, p into the stitch that was moved behind] ) repeat cabling until 1 stitch left, p1

The c1b is what I don't really get. It sounds to me like i'm knitting a stitch and then purling a stitch like normal.

Is this how I should do it: put the stitch on the cable needle, knit it, purl the next stitch then put the stitch from the cable needle back on to the right needle?

Also, does this row get worked with size 8 or 10.5 needles? Thanks in advance!
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / I have an FO: My own tank top/camisole! on: May 26, 2007 10:04:44 AM
*scratches head and wonders what the difference between tank top and cami is*



This took forever! But it's finally done and comments/suggestions are welcome.
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Camisole/Tank top suggestions please? on: May 25, 2007 08:39:07 AM
After a bunch of knitting and frogging and knitting and frogging, the cami/tank top I've been working on is to this point:



Since it's mostly made up and I'm a noob at that (this is my first from-scratch pattern), I'm not totally happy with it. The very top is the issue...obviously it's a little bit big on me and I was wondering...is there a way to crochet the top to make it more snug? I have a keyhole openning in the middle and a simple crochet chain to tie it together.
8  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Row Gauge on: April 04, 2007 02:40:46 PM
Ok...I am wondering if anyone can help with this.

If you manage to hit the stitch gauge but not the row, how do you compensate? Wouldnt' changing needles change the number of stitches per inch at the width?
9  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Pattern Suggestions please on: March 06, 2007 02:47:57 PM
I saw this sweater when I was window shopping:

http://www.anntaylorloft.com/atlLMProductPage.process?RestartFlow=t&Merchant_Id=1&Product_Id=110035#ATLtop

My hubby, who actually saw it first, told me "You could totally knit that! Maybe not the lace but the shape you could do."

So...I must try and do it since he has so much faith in me. Can anyone suggest a similar pattern to match the way this cardigan is shaped/constructed?
10  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / FO beret - Le Slouch! on: February 26, 2007 12:27:02 PM
Yay for the slouchy hat!

I love Patton's SWS! And the seed stitch didn't take as long as I was thinking it would. It only took 3, maybe 4 days to finish.
One more:
