What a pretty little bag!  You did a wonderful job!  What are you going to use it for?

That's beautiful!  I haven't quite gotten into the knitting with multiple colors thing, but I've gotten some books from the library so I can figure it out.  This piece is great looking!

Your shawl is absolutely gorgeous! Bet it looked tons better than the wraps the other bride'smaids had to wear. How long did it take to do and where is the pattern from?

Whoops!  Forgot to mention those things Smiley.  I can't tell you exactly how long it took to make, but it was a good 6-8 weeks of knitting almost every day for a couple of hours.  Lol that was specific.  Anyway, the pattern is from A Gathering of Lace by Meg Swanson and it has a lot of great projects in it from shawls to a pretty baby sweater in a variety of difficulties.  I made another shawl from it for my sister, who has been living in London.  I get to leave to go see her tomorrow and made it as a "thanks for letting me stay with you" and, of course, "I love you and wanted to make you something pretty" gift.  I'll post picks of that as well soon.

Man I'm verbose.

btw, the name of the project is "Feather and Fan shawl" and it starts on page 56 of the book
544  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / My first lace shawl! And my first post! Semi image heavy on: February 16, 2006 04:18:51 PM
Hey all!  So, I was a bridesmaid in one of my best friend's wedding this New Year's Eve.  The dress was a strapless deep purple and I decided, being winter and all, that I should make a shawl - and decided on a lace one!  It's my first attempt at lace and I didn't finish the edge as directed in the book because I ran out of yarn (bad girl - didn't check my gauge), so it looks a little funky.  I used Knit Pick's Alpaca Cloud in Iris.  Turned out there should've been a wrap included with my dress that the bridal shop neglected to send to me.  D'oh!  But I wore my shawl with pride anywho!

Here's a pick of the overall shawl and some closeups on the work:

And here's a pic of me wearing said shawl!  Sorry my posture is crap.  It's a bad habit.  I blame it on being hunched over to knit.   Tongue

Let me know what you all think!

You are my hero!

I loved She Ra as a kid.  I ended up having two of the action figures because I broke one and loved it so much that my mom bought me a new one!  I think I may still have She Ra the 2nd, but she's prolly half naked in a box somewhere as many of my dolls tended to become...lol.

Man, I wish I could see this in more detail!  Does anyone know where to find a bigger picture of this cape?  My rabid internet searching has returned no results...
547  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Reversibly Cabled Throw! on: February 04, 2006 10:25:16 AM
Who wants to do a knitalong with me?

I'm going to be making this:

and I will be using Lion Brand Fisherman's wool.  The pattern doesn't seem to be available on the website listed above anymore, but you can find it online or at a local yarn shop.  It's designed by Lily Chin, offered by Fibertrends and I believe it's called "Reversibly Cabled Throw"

Let me know if you're interested!

That's such an awesome idea!  And it turned out fantasically!
549  U.K. AND IRELAND / ENGLAND / Yarn/craft/fabric supplies in London and/or Amsterdam on: January 29, 2006 09:09:21 PM
Hey all!

Just wondering where I should go to get awesomely cool supplies while I'm visiting my sister in London!  She lives in Enfield, so near there would be ideal, but my boyfriend and I will have time on our hands to run around town while she's at work, so if you know of any places/stores in London that have great stuff, let me know!

We'll also be going to Amsterdam, so if you know of any great places near the city center, let me know, again!

Thanks a bunch! Smiley

Oooo... *drools slightly*

That's such an awesome looking cape!  It's totally based on a circle and has a mandarin collar.  I think I might figure this one out and make it - if I do, I'll post and prolly Tute!
