1  Millefiori Cardigan in Knitting: Completed Projects by klement on: May 12, 2009 08:29:51 PM
Just completed the Millefiori Cardigan, from Interweave Spring 2009.

Knit with 1.5 balls of Bendigo Cotton 8ply in Damask Rose ( a dusky pinkish sort of colour)

The knit was easy once I figured out the clamshell pattern, and I also changed the twisted rib to a broken rib (by mistake though).

2  Zoo Print Grey Shift Dress with Buttoned Pockets in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by klement on: January 11, 2009 07:40:43 PM
I loved the fabric when I saw it (and bought 4metres of it!!), and had no idea what to do with it, but i thought Simplicity 3507 (Project Runway Pattern) was so cute I just had to give it a go.





My only recommendation if you make this is to use your RTW dress size, not the pattern sizing cause they are HUGE.

3  Bubble Bee Top in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by klement on: December 13, 2008 02:40:00 PM
When i bought this cute little bee fabric, I decided I needed something cute and casual to wear out of it, and out came the Bubble Bee Top.





No pattern was used , and the design was my own (with the assistance of my pattern making teacher).

Fabric is 100% cotton for the bee fabric, lining, and the yellow gingham yoke.

Notions used were thread, elastic and buttons.

4  Finished: Rosemary's Swing Jacket , from Interweave Winter 2007 in Knitting: Completed Projects by klement on: August 17, 2008 07:35:06 PM
Pattern: Just finished Cathy Carron's "Rosemary Swing Jacket" from Interweave Winter 2007.
Needles: I used US7s and 5.5mm dpns
Yarn: Heirloom Merino Magic yarn in a deep purple/plum type colour.



Comments:

The pattern was a top down raglan, so very easy to follow and modify. I cast on a few less than required as the smallest size was still too big for me.

Instead of full length sleeves, i went for 3/4:



...and topped off the neckline with a little bow.

5  Vogue Ribbed Minidress in Knitting: Completed Projects by klement on: January 18, 2008 10:21:38 PM
Just finished the Vogue Ribbed Minidress from VK Spring/Summer 2007 by Mari Lynn Patrick. The pattern was easy to follow and well written; and I don't remember coming across any mistakes.



I used Rowanspun 4 ply in colour Squirrel, doubled for the knit and while I got my stitch gauge, my row gauge was completely off meaning I had to recalculate everything.

Needles used were US size 5 Denises, and Addi 3.25mm.



Oh.. and I do love the buttons! Makes me feel as if I come from some heroic family teehee!

6  Leaf Sweater from Phildar Tendances in Knitting: Completed Projects by klement on: November 07, 2007 01:41:30 AM
This must've been the quickest sweater knit I've ever done. Granted, I was fairly monogamous with this one, and the yarn was aran weight, but it still flew by rather quickly!

Here is a picture of it on me:



And another of the detail on it:



Pattern: Sweater #1 (which I've dubbed the leaf sweater), from Phildar Tendances Winter 06/07. It's issue No. 460

Yarn: Bendigo Aran in colour Seamist which is  a very pale green / aqua type colour.

Needles: I got gauge on 4.5mm for the main part, and i used 3.75mm for the ribbing.

Comments and Mods: Lots of mods. I altered the neckline so it wasn't as wide as the ones I've seen, added extra length, shortened the sleeves, changed the back neckline, and worked it in the round.

All in all, it was a quick easy knit. The only gripe I have would be that I found it very difficult to set in the sleeves as it was all reverse stockinette stitch. I'll just have to keep practicing!

7  Rambling Rose Cardigan - finito in Knitting: Completed Projects by klement on: October 21, 2007 07:38:18 AM
Just finished this one yesterday!

The pattern is Rambling Rose, which is in Rowan #39.
The pattern was easy to follow, if not a little boring because of the mainly stockinette/ribbing knitting. There's only that little panel on the left for something interesting. I didn't put the roses on it because when I did, they stood out like gigantic warts when you turn to one side. I think it looks alright without Smiley

I knitted it with Bendigo 5ply Classic (a bit heavier than required, and not cotton either eek), in colour Cranberry.

It took little over a month and a bit..

8  Ribbed Lace Bolero in Knitting: Completed Projects by klement on: October 18, 2007 04:39:20 AM
After knitting for what seemed like forever at a gauge of 28x30, I was in deep need of an easy finish, easy knit project.

Project in question? Kelly Maher's Ribbed Lace Bolero, which is available free on her website.



For my particular bolero, I knitted at 4st/inch and I have a 16" shoulder span, so I cast on 94 stitches. I used leftover stash yarn from a previous project, and is Bendigo Woollen Mills Aran yarn.

The pattern is extremely easy to follow, has very very little seaming, and it took me all of three days of knitting to complete!





For anyone looking at a simple , destash project, I would highly recommend this

9  Pink Heart Vest - in Knitting: Completed Projects by klement on: October 12, 2007 04:25:17 AM


Pattern: No pattern, my own. I just winged it. Lucky it turned out Smiley I call it a pink heart vest because those little white stitches look like hearts (haha genius aren't I?)

Yarn: Bendigo Woollen Mills Aran 10 ply in colour Woodrose. The yarn is quite a sturdy yarn, made of crepe construction, and very similar to the colonial / classic yarns they produce. It's not as soft as I would like it, but is definitely a yarn to use if you're looking for something that will last you awhile. Sadly, my corporate days are over for the time being, so this vest (and all my work clothes are now being retired).



Needles: Straights, 5.0mm. In hindsight I probably should've just knit this in the round. Silly billy. And a smaller needle for the ribbing - Unfortunately I can't remember what it was, but it was definitely circular.

10  My finished Patti Cardigan in Knitting: Completed Projects by klement on: August 12, 2007 04:35:13 AM
Just finished my Patti Cardigan - hooray.





Anyways, a little bit about the project:

The pattern is "Patti" from Rowan Studio 1 and is written and designed by Sarah Hatton. The pattern is supposed to be 3/4 length sleeved, but mine is full length sleeved. This wasn't done on purpose - for some reason, my sleeve length just ballooned even though my gauge was correct (if not a little smaller!!!)

I knitted it in the required yarn, Rowan Felted Tweed in a teal colourway as I got inspiration from another craftster's finished object.

The project required 8 balls of yarn, and I used 7.5 for the knitting and almost all of the rest for seaming (had to reseam about 6 times because of the sleeve sizing issue)

The pattern is very easy to knit and I would highly recommend it to people who are still starting out as it only requires garter stitch and stockinette stitch.

The bottom half takes a little longer to knit because you have to knit double the amount of stitches from the pleats, but all in all, it took me about 1 month to make.

I knitted this in the smallest size, for a size 32-34. However, I had to make modifications at my seaming stage because it was too big for me (i'm a 32). I took in the sleeves by about 6 stitches from each edge, and set the sleeves about 6 stitches in from where it should have been set. I think that the "small" is better suited for the 34.
