1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Blue Sky Eyelet Cardigan on: June 22, 2007 04:25:29 PM
I love this sweater!

It is Blue Sky Alpaca Cotton and the Blue Sky Eyelet Sweater pattern.  Such an easy pattern!  I got the yarn and the buttons at Loop.  It used a little under four skeins for the size small.  I went down a size in needles, it is very stretchy and any bigger needles I think it would stretch too much.  

Give it a try!  A very fun, easy knit!
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Wonderful Wallaby! on: March 25, 2007 12:48:01 PM
I finished my Wonderful Wallaby and I love it!  I've been sick all week which was great for knitting but I look like a zombie- hence the blacked out face.
http://www.personal.psu.edu/users/a/f/afg118/wallaby.jpg

Pattern:  Wonderful Wallaby, adult small, by Cottage Creations which I purchased at Knit NY
Yarn:  Knit Picks Wool of the Andes in Amethyst Heather, 10 skeins
Modifications:  I did a two by two ribbing around the bottom and the cuffs simply because I like it better.  I also did the stockinette stitch hood option.

Overall, I thought this was a great pattern.  So simple and so cute.  Give it a try!  I cannot imagine that you would not like the results!
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Marseilles Pullover on: February 18, 2007 04:56:14 PM
http://www.personal.psu.edu/users/a/f/afg118/marseillesfin.jpg
Pattern: Marseilles Pullover from Interweave Knits Summer 2006
Yarn: Knit Picks Wakashan 100% Baby Alpaca in Wild Cherry (on sale for $2 a ball!)
Modifications:  None.  But I do not like the boat neck.  I don't hate it enough to rip out and do a crew neck, but I don't like it.

Overall, I'm happy with it!  In person, the sweater does not look as bulky and the cables stand out way more.  It is sooo warm and soft.  Thanks for looking!
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Endpaper Mits! on: January 05, 2007 08:26:18 PM
I recently finished Eunny Jang's endpaper mits (eunnyjang.com/knit) for a friend and I love the results!  The second picture is more accurate for color.  I modified it but using a regular cast on and ribbing.  The yarn is some knit picks palette.  The only thing I don't love is the seam stitch on each side.  Oh well- I'll leave that out next time!

5  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Embossed Leaves Socks on: December 20, 2006 06:11:56 PM
Yay!  One more Christmas present is done.

http://www.personal.psu.edu/afg118/IMG_0002.JPG
Name:  Embossed Leaves Socks
Pattern Source: Interweave Knits Winter 2005
Yarn: I think it was Louet, a Koigu knockoff I did not enjoy knitting with as much as the real thing.
Modifications:  No tubular cast on, just regular ribbing at the top.  I felt lazy.

A very fun, easy pattern!  I highly recommend it!

6  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / What should I do with this? I think it's Jo Sharp... on: October 20, 2006 05:19:29 AM
When I first started knitting about 8 years ago I bought a ton of yarn for a sweater.  The pieces got made but I frogged the whole thing.  So now I have this yarn, don't know what it is exactly but it is enough for a sweater.  I do have three balls of this Jo Sharp silkroad that I was going to use around the cuffs with this other yarn....  I think the only difference with this other yarn is it doesn't have the cashmere.

Long intro but WHAT SHOULD I DO WITH THIS STUFF?

I usually use a much much thinner yarn for sweaters but I would like something out of this...

Thanks for the help!
7  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Long Distance Relationship swap? on: August 13, 2006 08:38:44 AM
It seems like a lot of other people are dealing with a significant other who lives far away.  While we sit around waiting for visits we could do a care package type swap.  Anyone interested?
8  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / First quilt! on: July 21, 2006 06:16:47 AM
I finished my first quilt!  I love quilting!  Such immediate results compared to knitting.  The design is called London Crossroads.  Here is the front complete with my kitten, he really seems to love it.

And the back!

Not great pictures but you can get the idea.  Is it bad that I almost like the back more than the front?
Thanks for looking!
9  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Completed Projects / I lost my spinning virginity! on: June 08, 2006 05:41:00 AM
I happily received a drop spindle and some fiber in the mail the other day, here is my first attempt!

http://www.personal.psu.edu/afg118/handspun.jpg

Is this really yarn?  I seem to only be able to make thick stuff.  Thin yarn scares me.  Doesn't it break?  

I have to say... I might like spinning more than knitting!  But don't tell anyone!
10  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Skull clutch! on: June 04, 2006 05:43:30 PM
I made this lovely little clutch for a friend... now I want it!  I tweaked a chart from http://www.helloyarn.com and just made it up from there.  Thanks for looking!

It looks more purple in person.  This rainy weather is not conducive to good photos, but it is conducive to staying inside knitting!

And the lining....
