1  Hip in Cotton! in Knitting: Completed Projects by andreacs on: July 16, 2007 03:01:04 PM
Hip in Hemp from the summer knitty.  Only mine is Hip in Cotton, becuase I was too impatient to order yarn and my LYS didn't have the Hempathy.  I subbed Manos Cotton Stria, and fiddled with the pattern for my guage, which was surprisingly easy for a first time pattern-adjuster!




Not the best pic, but it looks perfect!  (Big bro couldn't stand not getting his picture taken too, lol)

Here's a close up:

I can't say enough good things about this pattern.  Clearly written easy to memorize and really easy to knit!  Gudrun was nice enough to expand the sizing on her blog all the way down to a size 2.

Here it is post blocking -

Optimism, thanks for the tip about blocking...I was fully prepared to do a full on wet block w/pins...thanks for saving me about 3 days!

Gudrun, the only thing for the size 2 was that if you follow the chart as written and end on row 61, that puts you at CC1 instead of CC3.  I just ended sooner (since my daughter is not quite 2 yet) and I love the length for her.  But the pattern is so clear it was easy to figure out on my own.  I will email you pics when I get a better one.  These are pretty blurry, but I was impatient to post the final results.

Well, I knit my little fingers to the bone yesterday and bound off last night!  Woo Hoo!  I still have all gazillion ends to weave in, and it's still a little puckery, but I'm hopeful that a good blocking will cure that.  I think it might be the yarn sub...my curves are much more pronounced than on the others, but it gives the bottom the cutest little flare, it kids of looks like a tulip!

Here it is on my daughter, the size is absolutely perfect!!

5  First Completed project post - Adorable Baby, Adorable Dress! in Knitting: Completed Projects by andreacs on: July 18, 2006 11:38:52 AM
I'm so excited, this is my first every completed project post!

shameless cute baby brag shot Smiley


Details:
Pattern: Dress with Eyelets from Debbie Bliss Baby Knits for Beginners (I think, I forget and already returned the book to the library
Yarn: Manos del Uraguay Cotton Stria

I'm so pleased with the way it turned out!  I was a little worried that by the time I finally finished it that it wouldn't fit my daughter, but it fits with a little room to grow, which is perfect!

This was my first project with such tiny needles (sz 3) and man did it take forever, but I think it's pretty good for my 3rd ever project!  

Thanks for looking, I hope my pic links work!
