1  Cobblestone Pullover in Knitting: Completed Projects by HotRock on: October 16, 2007 09:08:55 AM
A quick and easy knit!







Pattern if from IK Fall '07.  Original pattern is a men's sweater.  A swatch and a little math and voila - a woman's sweater.  Knit in Classic Elite Skye Tweed on US 7 needles.  I'm really happy with the color and fit.  And finished just in time for the fall weather!

2  Calla! in Knitting: Completed Projects by HotRock on: July 08, 2007 01:47:47 PM

Front


Back

Pattern: Calla from Magknits
Yarn: Butterfly Cotton, colorway Terracotta

I modified this to knit in the round until the split for the armholes.  It was a simple, quick knit and I'm fairly pleased with the finished product.  I wore it out last night and got a few complements.  Nothing like a few cables to impress the non-knitters!

3  First Sweater Finally Finished! in Knitting: Completed Projects by HotRock on: May 23, 2007 09:02:41 AM
This took me forever to complete!  I'm happy it actually fits.  Too bad it's hot, hot, hot outside.  





Specs:
     Pattern--Under the Hoodie from Stitch n Bitch
     Yarn--Lamb's Pride Worsted in Deep Charcoal, Light Grey, and Brick
              Red  (the second pic shows the colors best)

I finished the knitting months ago but took forever to get down to the seaming.  Just a tip for anyone who's thinking about starting their first seamed item...don't pick dark gray mohair yarn.  Pain. In. The. Ass. To. Seam.  Wink

4  The Ugliest Socks In My Sock Drawer in Knitting: Completed Projects by HotRock on: April 14, 2007 12:46:48 PM
How can yarn that looked so, so pretty as a skein look so, so ugly as socks?



I finished these out of sheer stubborness.  Knit out of Lorna's Laces, colorway Seaside (or Mistake by the Lake, as I took to calling it.)

I did work on these socks while we were visiting the Grand Canyon, so at least they managed to see some beauty even if they're not beautiful themselves.

6  Beaded Wrist Cuff in Knitting: Completed Projects by HotRock on: January 24, 2007 08:48:16 AM


I whipped up this beaded wrist cuff in a jiffy using nylon cord on size 10 needles.  The stitch definition is lost a bit in the black, but I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.
