1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / FO: Misty Garden on: August 20, 2007 10:25:52 PM
Last night I finished Misty Garden from Scarf Style. I love this book, this is my third project from it!
My Misty Garden is made in M&K Mohair, 50 g of each colour. It's not very long, about a meter I think. The yarn is quite itchy, if anyone have some tips on how to make it less itchy it would be very welcome!

2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Fir cone shawl on: August 14, 2007 01:00:28 AM

This is one of many versions of the fir cone pattern. It's made from a lovely green silk yarn that I bought from Etsy. The shawl, as you can see, is HUGE, which I didn't realise until blocking. The pattern is worked top-down so the rows keep getting shorter, this is nice at the end when you feel you've been knitting on it forever  Wink

The pattern I used is in Swedish and can be found here, but if you google "fir cone shawl" I'm sure you will find a very similar pattern in English.
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Backyard Leaves from Scarf Style on: August 13, 2007 02:38:51 AM

Here is my latest FO, Backyard Leaves from Scarf Style. I loved knitting it and I am very pleased with the result! I used Araucunia Nature Wool, which is my favourite wool. Thanks for looking!

4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Yarn shops in San Fransisco and San Diego on: June 23, 2007 12:45:58 AM
Hi everyone!

Next week I'm going overseas to visit some friends in San Fransisco and  I'm wondering if you guys could recommend some great yarn shops there? We're also visting San Diego.

I can't wait to see all the great yarn you seem to have over there! Here in Sweden the variation is quite limited.

I'd be really greatfull for some tips!
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / FO: Black mittens with hearts on: October 03, 2006 02:57:45 AM
Here's my first try at mittens. They're made of 100 % wool so I hope they will warm my hands this winter and fall!
I must say I really enjoyed making them, and it's so nice with small project that you can just tuck away when you're not working on it.
To make them a little more fun a embroidered a heart in cross stitch on each of them.

And last but not least an action shot!

6  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Wavy! on: September 26, 2006 04:28:20 AM
Here's my wavy from SnB nation. It'll be a nice and cosy scarf this winter I think. I made mine in just one color to go with my black winter jacket.

7  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / My new hat! on: September 26, 2006 04:22:36 AM
This time I thought I should start my winter projects in time, only this is the warmest September anyone can remember and it feels slightly out of place to knit a woolen hat.

Here it is anyway and I'm quite pleased with the result! It's my first project on dpns.


The pattern is from Garnstudio
8  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / My alien illusion scarf on: September 10, 2006 08:09:25 AM
Here's my alien scarf that I completed a couple of weeks ago. The colours are black and a coral-green I really like. I'm very pleased with the result!.
Sorry for the bad picture -it's taken with a cellphone camera.

9  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Change size of the-go-everywhere, go-with-everything cardigan? on: September 03, 2006 11:26:35 AM
I've been lurking around for quite a while at this part of the forum as I would really really like to make the the-go-everywhere, go-with-everything cardigan. I think it's lovely!
However reading the posts on this topic I've noticed it seems to be huge in size. Making some measurements on myself I agree, the small is 37" at the bust, while I am only about 34".

Now (finally) my question: do you wise people here at Craftster think I could make a extra-small version by simply subtracting stitches from the instructions for a small?
Example: If it says cast on 84 st for a small and 88 st for a medium, then I cast on 80 stitches and so on.

What do ya' think? Is this crazy or actually quite clever?  Wink
10  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / My cute scotties! on: May 04, 2006 11:46:28 PM
The Scotties are made from felt and put together with ordinary sewing thread. I found the pattern at this lovely blog.
