42  Cable and Rice Sweater in Knitting: Completed Projects by Huhwhat? on: December 27, 2005 08:30:20 PM
Here is the sweater I made for my son for Christmas. He is a frosh in college, but lives at home, so I was hurriedly knitting away whenever he was at class so it would be a surprise. I used measurements from a sweater I know fits him well. I think it turned out nicely.

The pattern is rice stitch on the body, with a braided cable running up the arms and across the shoulders. It's from the Premier issue of Knit It Magazine.

43  I'll have a blue Christmas.... (lots of pix) in Knitting: Completed Projects by Huhwhat? on: December 17, 2005 07:17:42 PM
...Or at least everyone else will. I didn't realize it until I started taking pictures, that almost everything I've done so far is in blue!!!

Afghans for Dad and bro (and in the foreground, a scarf for my grand niece):


Detail:


For my other bro and my nephew and his wife:


Triple knot fringe detail:


I just wanted to show the close up b/c I loved this pattern:


Most of these came from a book called "Weekend Afghans" by Jean Leinhauser and Rita Weiss. The triple knot fringe is just good ol' feather and fan, done with three strands on big needles. The last pic was one of those freebie patterns you tear off the pad at Michaels. I liked these because they really did go fast, using multiple strands and large needles.

Now, must hurry and get them in the mail!!!

Thank you all for your comments!  Grin

No action shots of the shrug, but I used the leftover yarn from the shrugs to make a matching hat.

45  Shrugs! in Knitting: Completed Projects by Huhwhat? on: October 03, 2005 12:32:13 PM
My teenage daughter asked for a shrug to wear over some of her tops at school, since classrooms are frigid year round. She picked out the yarn and showed me some styles she liked and I made this:



Then she asked for another, this time with short sleeves, so I made this one:



The first one is my own pattern. It's very plain, since she did not want any lace or trim or anything--pure functionality.  It has a couple of rows of garter stitch around the edges to keep it from rolling. I'm tempted to make another, maybe with some eyelet or something. How many shrugs does a girl need?

The short sleeve one you may recognize as Glampyre's Minisweater, minus the poofy sleeves and pointy trim. Again, she wanted it very plain.

These shrugs are modeled, by the way, by Zeus, since my daughter did not want her picture taken. What do you think?

Ok, lemme see.... Hopefully I've learned how to post pictures....



These are the stockings. This was apparently taken before I knitted mine. You can see my pathetically small stocking there on the right.
