1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Coquette Lace Tube Top and Cropped Cardi on: September 13, 2007 05:58:10 PM
Here is my coquette lace tube top from fitted knits
I bought this knit picks elegance for something else, but i didn't have enough, so i threw caution to the wind that cast on for the tube top. I'm suprised that it fits and that I actually plan on wearing it.


I also recently completed this cropped cardigan. The pattern is from Blue Sky Alpacas, and I used Knit Picks andean treasure in embers. It was a simple top down raglan with ribbing instead of waist shaping. I wasn't too sure about it until after it was blocked. Now I am stoked.



There are more pictures and details on my blog. I hope you like these.

2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Natty and some other scarf and hat on: August 15, 2007 05:49:09 PM


Let me just say, I love this set. Designed by Wendy of Knit and Tonic, it's quick, easy, great first cabling, and perfect perfect perfect for fall (which is just around the corner thankfully). I used three balls of Rowan Soft Tweed, which came from WEBS on the cheap. It only took a few days to get the whole thing together. Details on my blog http://pinsneedles.blogspot.com/2007/08/fall.html#links

I also knit this lovely set from 3 skeins of Malabrigo I bought at the LYS.


It's a bday gift for a friend, so there's nothing on my blog yet. I don't want him to accidentally stumble across it. I'm really excited for it. It started off as just a scarf. I like the vertical stripes as something different. I just dropped and later picked up colors as I needed them. Turns out I had plenty leftover so I made a hat using Kim's Hats patterns from Last Minute Knitted Gifts.

I loved this knit and tonic pattern so much that I made two!<p>

The first one is made from classic elite city city lights. I used about a ball and 2/3rds and followed the pattern exactly, except on smaller needles, since I am a very loose knitter.
The second is from a leftover ball of cascade 220. I used maybe half a ball, but needed to modify the pattern and needle size a bit in order to get it juuuuuust right.

I love them both, and have gotten tons of compliments so far. Perfect for sprucing up winter.<p>
