1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Pattern for 10 balls alpaca yarn? on: July 07, 2006 07:09:35 PM
I got 10 balls of a beautiful moss green alpaca yarn. It was originally for Branching out, but i decided I didnt really like it too much, so now I have no idea what to do with the yarn. I do want to use it now though.

So any suggestions for a pattern?

It is a lace weight, but I have been using it double stranded, and I get about 21 st per 4 inches for gauge on size 3 needles. I have about 1800 yarns.

Edit: By the way, I dont care if your pattern is only to use 2 or 3 balls. Ill take any suggestions.
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Favorite Toy Patterns? on: June 16, 2006 06:23:54 PM
This is partially because I have some leftover yarn from an afghan...but mostly because I am just curious?

What is your favorite toy pattern(s)?

I rather like Pasha --->http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEwinter04/PATTpasha.html<---- from Knitty. But I just like penguins in general.
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Flickering flames skirt...? on: June 07, 2006 11:07:53 AM

I came across this pattern a while ago, and I think its really pretty. I love how it looks.

For now though, It is one of those one day patterns...you know...one day, I will be good enough to knit this! (im determined, after I get some easier lace projects under my belt). So i hold it as something to push me to become a better knitter.

I have to ask though, has anybody knit this? It looks really pretty in the photo, but I think it might be the lighting, you know. Everything looks good with a soft fuzzy light.

Do you think it would look as nice in real life than in the photo?

Any opinions? Even if you hadnt made it?

Oh, and the other thing. I love that cream/off white color they used, but if you look at the yarn, that color doesnt really exist (unless, I am missing something). What would be a good yarn sub?
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Scrunchies on: May 07, 2006 09:37:32 AM
Well, i guess it is kind of unimpressive as a first post...but I have been going completely crazy lately with AP tests and semester project deadlines nearing...so I havent gotten to knit anything bigger, because of lack of time. These little scrunchies have been kept me sane last week. I made them during breaks between studying.



and in use...



They are made from scraps of cheap red heart acrylic yarn, that has been lying around my house for months. I made up the pattern myself, though its probably been done before the exact same way by someone else.

The odd thing...I dont wear scrunchies. I havent since maybe 6th grade? Its a great quick project if you do wear them though, I guess. Or as a gift to younger girls (party favors?)
