1  Oh Jan! (girl's dress from knit and tonic) in Knitalongs by tiffanykapri on: June 24, 2006 06:13:10 PM

A few of us over on this post are going to knit this.  Anyone else in??

I just got the yarn- Cascade Cotton Rich color 5800 (http://www.yarns-and.com/fabrics/Cascade/CAScottonRich03.jpg).  I will swatch tonight and hopefully start knitting on Monday.

It sort of reminds me of this dress by the way...   which I am DYING to find a pattern that I cand modify to be similar!  I don't think I am skilled enough yet though.  Smiley

Anyways, what's the smallest size this pattern comes in?  I didn't see sizes on the site.

3  Knitting with Twine {IMG heavy} in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by tiffanykapri on: May 26, 2006 07:17:08 PM
So I was in the pharmacy stationary aisle today and decided to pick up a ball each of cotton and sisal twine.  I played around knitting a bit with the two strands held together.  One is more yarn-y and the other is more twine-y.  Here's how it turned out. 

I did it on size 15's and it's a very firm fabric. I am thinking of making the French Market Bag from Knitty, skipping the felting of course.  What do you think?

4  Linen Pants for my son :) in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by tiffanykapri on: May 25, 2006 07:04:41 AM
I have a TON of scrap fabric leftover (I sell baby slings) and it's taking over my tiny apartment so I had a girlfriend come over and we made pants for our sons.  It was my first time trying to sew clothing even though I sew everyday, even though it went pretty well.  I find linen particularly hard to work with when doing anything other than a straight hem cause it changes shape on me.  Anyways, the pants are not so exciting, but I am proud and this pic is just too cute not to share!  My son is the one on the left. 

I really need to work on my fnishing techniques to make them look more professional on the inside.  I wish I had a serger!

OK here are the felted pics.  It's not totally dry and the weather outside is nasty so I am not sure if the colors are really true.

6  Buttonhole Bag ***FELTED PICS*** in Knitting: Completed Projects by tiffanykapri on: April 23, 2006 10:59:21 AM
I just completed the buttonhole bga (pattern from http://www.masondixonknitting.com/archives/2005_01.html#000847).  I LOVE it!  It's for my mom made out of double stranded Manos del Uruguay. 

This is my first knitting project that I would actually not be embarrased to show off.  Actually I end up frogging most things!

Here it is...

Any felting tips? I have never felted.  I am not sure when I will get to it as I live in the city and all the laudromats have front loading machines!

I can't wait to make more buttonhole bags!!
