Yes I'm making another one!!! This time in Cascade 220 and Cascade Quattro, colors 9420 and 9434 respectively.

The 220 is the ribbing on the neck, sleeves and bottom of the capelet, and the Quattro is main body:



Its looks so good in RL. I am going to try to get better pics. Think teal/ turquoise... I am not sure if that is showing up on the screen well.

I also want to make a brooch out of a broken necklace I have that I think will look really good... stay tuned!

Emms! I thought you fell off the face of the earth! Welcome back!

I love all her designs, but after nursing two kiddos mama needs a bra, so I think I will have to sit this one out.

Yay!!! I missed you too Amanda (Aka hot momma!) I will send you a pm with details of whats been up.

Btw, I have three words for you: Clear Bra Straps.

You are making this tube top... I am putting my foot down.

I lost thirty pounds on my trip that I am determined to keep off, and this tube top is part of the "Emmie rewards herself for exercising, walking everywhere and saying no to eating chocolate for no good reason, just while bored" program.

Lol.



This is my gauge swatch (yes I'm so lazy this is how much i swatch)

I finished these yesterday, but was too busy sneezing to take a pic of them:





I did an extra row of ribbing at the top, used 3.75mm needles because I have really small wrists and hands, used magic loop instead of dpns. I used  one skein of Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran in Black (300) and had alot left over!

Oh kewl, olgajazzy! I love to think of another person out there knitting these at the same time as me!!! so wicked! I am just listening to my mp3's and knitting away... I don't have a tv, sometimes I watch movies on my pc, but I have been happily knitting to music tonight Grin

Here is my progress since I posted last:



These work up darn quick!

Emms  Cool

Here's my progress since I cast on at 7:30pm:

My hands are tired, but I will carry on! I want to have these finished by Monday. I abandoned the idea of doing them at the same time- too much trouble for my addled brain  Cheesy Next time maybe.

Em
Em, I am doing the same thing, I made one like within 2 hours of watching a movie =)
Nice way to spend a saturday.

9  Felicie Choker- Birthday gift for my roomie! in Knitting: Completed Projects by loisgriffinwannabe on: September 08, 2006 06:31:41 PM
Hi y'all!

I made this for my roommate Erica for her 21st birthday. She is a swell roomie.  Grin It's the Felicie Slanted Lace Choker by Sylvie at Chez Plum.

I changed it only a little- I used less than 1 skein of Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino in #207 Gray Blue, which is alot thinner than the yarn  required, but I wanted to stash bust. Its also very, very soft- so comfortable to wear!! I used 3.5mm needles, and I made it a bit wider by knitting more rows on the buttonhole side, since my gauge was off. I used 2.5mm needles for the anenome flower (incl. in the pattern, and is removable by buttoning it on and off!), which I also made out of cashmerino.

Enjoy!

I lost a bunch of weight, so I restarted this in a smaller size(from XL to L) now I have an extra skein of yarn, which I plan on using for a felted purse... I am totally in love with this pattern, it looks great, and it is working up quite quickly, the pattern is fairly easy for me, even though it looked intimidating at first.

Here are some pics of my progress (I am on the armhole decreases part):




YaY!
