So I've been surfing around the cyber-knit scene long enough to pick up on the love-hate relationship some knitters have with Knitty.com. I'm still undecided. Here are some Knitty originated FOs:
Here is my lovely sister modeling Kate Gilbert's Clapotis. I was following the KAL for so long I decided I must hop on the bandwagon.
I have to make a confession about this yarn I used. A few years ago my grandmother bought me a beautiful jewel tone variegated mohair blend poncho. I hate ponchos. I know, a knitter who hates ponchos? So sue me. I think I wore it once in three years. And then I came across the Clapotis pattern... *lightbulb* Aha! I frogged the entire poncho! (Sorry Gram!) And knit myself a new beautiful wrap which- once it gets a little cooler (thank you very much New England summer!!) I will wear all the time.
Cheryl Niamath's Fetching. I think these little glove-thingys are so damn cute!
I made this pair for my sister out of a bulky weight yarn that was sweater bound but never made it. I added the ribbon because gauge is important (fool me twice, shame on me) and they came out a little too big.
Thanks for looking!
Question: I want to try my hand at making /designing my own sweater. Any good book recommendations for a guide to sweater design?
