41  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Re: Knit AIMEE with me? on: February 15, 2006 07:02:20 AM
I work (seasonal hours) at a 19th century living history museum.  I do daycamps, mostly, but I've given my share of tours.

I finished the back of my Aimee:



Random thoughts:

I'm using Misti Alpaca Lace.  It's so soft and it smells wonderful.  So far I like it with this pattern.  There's far less haze, which means my lace sections are more cobwebby, which makes it a bit more goth.  And preppy goth is always good. 

The color is a little darker in real life, and it alternates between having brown, purple, and red undertones.

My underarm sections don't look as wing-like as I had feared.  Look at that waist, though--I might need to borrow a corset from work.

I'm not doing the bow in the front section, because I think it's too big and, frankly, it looks silly. 

This pattern is great TV knitting--it barely requires any attention.

You can find gratuitous progress photos at my blog (linked in sig).

Four days in, and already I'm in pain.  My back is giving me more problems than usual.  I knit 3 rows and decided to take a break (conveniently, I have a paper to write for tomorrow).  Hopefully tomorrow I'll be able to resume the knitting marathon in order to make up for lost time.  It might be a good idea to visit my chiropractor this weekend.

Make sure you all stretch frequently!

Thanks, bijouxmaster!  I'm using Misti Alpaca Laceweight.  I have no idea if it's an ideal sub or not, but I sub yarns with wild abandon.  Each 50g skein has around 440 yards, and I was able to buy it for something like $5 or $6 per skein.  I don't really like the haze of KSH, nor do I like the price tag. 

My row gauge is slightly off, but other than that, I really like this yarn.

I do like the One-Piece Lace pullover.  It looks very similar to a French pattern (warning: PDF) I saw at Bergre de France.  I'll have to weigh buying the magazine for one pattern yet avoiding seaming vs. seaming but having a completely free pattern.

I also really like that sweater from bergere de france and have been looking at it for a while.  I just wanted to make sure that you know that pattern was written for machine knitters.  So not only would you have to convert from French to english, but also from machine to hand knitting. 

Whoops, I didn't realize it was written for machine knitters.  Thank you so much for telling me, before I embarked on a very frustrating mission!

Here's my progress, as of last night at 1 am:



I'm knitting Aimee from Rowan Vintage Style.

I purposely spent beaucoup time knitting on Friday and Saturday since these next several days are going to be really busy for me.  I'm not sure how much I'll be able to get done.  The schedule I made for myself says I should finish this piece on Monday, which I can definitely see happening.

I've been considering waking up a few hours earlier than normal just to knit.  Is that weird?

Odessa is very easy.  It took me only 3 days to knit.  I don't know your skill level, but you can use that fact as sort of a guide.

I knit from 2pm to about 1:30am, stopping only for an hour to eat.  I got 8" done on my Aimee, which is pretty good, considering I won't have nearly that much time to knit for the next several days.

Pictures on my blog.

Just a note that tonight at midnight (Toronto time, I'm guessing) is the deadline to sign up (according to Harlot's blog).
