1  More babysweaters! Incl. nifty Origami type technique for seamless sweater in Knitting: Completed Projects by svea on: April 09, 2007 12:08:09 PM
hello again,

still on the baby clothes. i finished a small version of Knitty's Vestee in my nice cheepo yarn (3.99 for 300g, 100% cotton)



i also made a little garter stitch cardigan - kind of based on a Debbie Bliss one (i think) which I browsed through in a bookshop one day - a very easy thing which i made more interesting for myself by trying to construct it entirely without seams! (well, there are two invisible seams, aka grafting, in there). it kind of folds like origami.

just a few teaser pictures here - the details are on my blog (in an hour's time!)


folds, invisible cast-ons and grafting at the shoulders results in a seamless garment

3  iSweater for Baby (with pattern link) and small size Ugg boots *UPDATE* in Knitting: Completed Projects by svea on: November 09, 2006 02:22:36 PM
A friend of mine is having a baby around about now, and as he is a huge Mac fan (as am I), this has to be the most perfect baby shower present ever....
I also made some Ugg boots in the same colours as the sweater. Baby clothes are sooo cute!!

4  Cerise lace 3/4 sweater in Knitting: Completed Projects by svea on: September 12, 2006 01:52:54 PM
Finally! I started this project in May, just after my Tubey was finished - but it's ok since it would have been too warm anyways in the height of summer Smiley

This top was inspired by the following:
Lelah
and
HSLS(aka HelloSunshineLaceSweater)
plus
a cracking tutorial on top down raglan construction

The result is Cerise

Knit with Vintage Yarn Bellmans Wonder 4-ply crepe, 80% Wool,. 20% Nylon, ca. 190m/50g
I used just shy of 6 skeins.

I havent yet blocked this sweater - I think it will improve the drape somewhat - without loosing shape (because of the Nylon content)

Now a quick scarf from Knitty, before something else newly designed finds its way onto my needles Cheesy

Thanks for looking

5  Finished Tubey just in time for summer! in Knitting: Completed Projects by svea on: May 30, 2006 01:55:06 PM
haha, the joke is on me. never mind, it's a lovely top for when it gets cooler again...and who knows with the british summer

here is my completed tubey. i only recently got back into compulsive knitting, having learned it many many years ago. i have a long list of other projects i want to do, plus designing one or other knitted tops, too.

i knit this in DK weight, Sirdar Country Style (Highlands and Islands)

the modifications are:

 - size: knitted enough back to fit my shoulders, basing the width on the circumference of my arms. no bunching, perfect fitting shrug. I also lengthened the body tube until i was happy with the length.

 - i liked the stripes on the arms, but not across the belly, so frogged back and knitted the body tube plain (but boy was that boring!!!)

 - not so important but as i started with stripes, i moved the colour change (and hence my official 'beginning-of-row') to one side under the armpit. it doesnt matter so much in the single colour but i didnt want to see that stripe change on the front below my boob (where it would have been according to pattern)

 - i knitted more than one row of garter stich at the end of the sleeves as it curled too much for my liking

i LOVE the neckline - might have to take it in a bit as the jumper stretches with wear - i have to see.

SEXY!







excuse the photo quality and the stripes across the images, my mirror is made from mirror tiles.....
