I made it out of Cascade 220 in .. some unknown green. I increased the ribbing at the waist to 5" instead of 3" because I'm long waisted. I did 1x1 rib instead of 2x2, omitted the tie waist and split for the neck after knitting up 2.5" instead of the 1" the pattern calls for.
There was no 36" bust size (it went from 34-38 without anything in between :/) so I fudged with the needle size to get a 36" , more or less. My back is quite narrow so I decreased a little more..
Hi! I'm making a triangle shawl in fingering weight silky wool.. pretty much just winging it. Basically, so far, I've been going about it in stockinette stitch, increasing in a yarn over after the first stitch, just before the center stitch, just after the center stitch and just before the last stitch, if that makes sense. Basically, I have pair of eyelets going up the center of the shawl, and eyelets going up either side of the shawl.
It's looking boring.
I want to try to incorporate some kind of eyelet design, or reverse stockinette chart of sorts in the stockinette portions of the pattern (on either side of the center eyelets), without disturbing the increasing thing I have going on.. but I don't know how to go about doing this.. :/
So I've been on craftster for a year or more now, and I've never posted in the "art" forum before!
I've also never drawn a nude before. My subject was another image, and not a live subject (I just moved to a new town and didn't want to introduce myself to people by asking for them to pose for me naked.. haha!).
Hi! My mother in law just knit this cardigan for me! The pattern is from the wonderful people at Berroco, called "March Basic". It's made of an Alpaca/Wool blend and I just love it. She added to the length of the overall sweater and each of the sleeves by 2inches or so, and it fits my long waist and monkey arms perfectly!
I've never knit a sweater before, so it was nice to see how she did it, and I'm excited to try a bigger project now!
So I finally got around to making my Calorimetry. I started it last night and knit until I was too drunk and sleepy to knit anymore. I was surprised at the fact I never dropped one stitch that whole night! For those of you who like to knit while sipping something special, this is definitely an easy one, even after you've had a few, lol . I finished it today, and I'm so proud!
Pardon my funky hair and my no-makeup face, I'm just too proud of this to let it go another day without a photo.
