1  Deeeeeeep v Argyle vest in Knitting: Completed Projects by eunnyjang on: January 25, 2006 02:08:10 PM
Can such a thing be sexy?  I'm in love with it, or at least in deep deep lust.



The pattern is my own; the thing is knit entirely in the round with crocheted steeks at front and back neck and armholes.  It's argyle, but not intarsia - I charted the pattern with a false "seam" at each side to ensure that there isn't a single float longer than 5 stitches in the thing.

2  Your opinion, please (pictured fixed!!) in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by eunnyjang on: December 29, 2005 11:01:20 PM
Okay, I'm knitting a little sweater for a baby, and I'm (as usual) going through some angst over decisions.

Pattern 1

(a)     (b)

Pattern 2

(a)     (b)

These are the two border patterns I've decided on, and the color combinations I picture them in.  I want to keep the continuity going by keeping the blues background and the pinks pattern, but I'm having a tough time deciding the gradient direction.  Right now, I guess I'm leaning towards 1a and 2b, but I'd love to hear your advice.

Because my web color picking eye sucks, the color accuracy here is pathetic - the true colors are more like this:



(that would be number 2b).

Hee, thanks everyone!  I LOVE Baby Ull - it's unbelievably soft, wears decently, and goes through the delicate cycle like a champ, but it's not a lot of fun to knit for anything other than straight stockinette.  It's superwash, so it's pretty slippery - dropped stitches ladder merrily (which makes it hard to do cables without a cable needle), there's no "grab" to keep strands in their proper places (meaning you have to knot new strands for intarsia and then go back and untie them before darning ends), and the loose twist means the yarn splits pretty easily.  All that said, it's a very pleasant, high-quality wool in a bunch of great colors (not just insipid pastels), at a reasonable price point ($4-$6 a 180yd skein).

The intarsia is a pain, but not "hard".  It's just sort of fiddly and awkward.  If I made this again, I'd be tempted to swallow my knitter's pride and just do the big blocks of color with intarsia and duplicate stitch the lines - MUCH faster, and would probably result in a better-looking (better-tensioned) final product.

I estimate it took about 6 hours to knit and 4 hours to darn in the ends.  I'm serious!

4  Disgustingly cute baby argyle in Knitting: Completed Projects by eunnyjang on: December 26, 2005 07:43:51 AM


It's so cute it makes me feel sort of uncomfortably smiley and pleasant - I'm the last person you'd imagine would coo over a baby, but seriously, awwww.

My own pattern, superwash wool (Dale Baby Ull) at 9st/inch made in pieces and sewn.  The argyle motif is all intarsia, with the lines knitted in as well (you can see that my tension leaves something to be desired).  It also closes with three buttons at the right shoulder, the better to plop that baby into it

5  More lace! Print O' The Wave Stole (Pattern now available!) in Knitting: Completed Projects by eunnyjang on: December 20, 2005 09:31:43 AM


One of the last Christmas gifts - cobweb weight wool on 1.75mm (US00) needles in my variant of the traditional "Print O The Wave" Shetland lace motif.  I'll have a free PDF pattern available today or tomorrow - it would make a beautiful longer stole/shawl done in laceweight and maybe 3 or 4 mm needles, or even a luxuriously wide and long scarf done with fingering weight and say 6mm needles.

Click here to download the free PDF - http://eunnyjang.com/images/knit/0511joycesscarf/stole_print_o_the_wave.pdf

The pattern has been checked carefully, but please let me know if you find any errors or inconsistencies.  Also, I haven't yet test-knit this in a laceweight - the numbers should work out fine, but finished size and yardage are just estimates.

Let me know if you make one!  I'd love to put together a gallery.

6  (cross post) Felted Baguette Bag with leather trim and shantung lining in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by eunnyjang on: December 07, 2005 04:30:21 PM


The pattern started out as Nicky Epstein's Floral Felted Bag from the fall '04 Interweave Knits, but it changed along the way into something very different - it has leather cargo-style handles, a lining with a zippered pocket, and a lot more structure than the original.  Click on over to my blog to see LOTS more pictures and see the evolution of this project.

So does a glue stick:



That's about half an hour's worth of practice with googled instructions - I'm in love.
