1  Urchin in Knitting: Completed Projects by candicane on: December 07, 2007 06:53:20 AM
Another Urchin from Fall Knitty. Loved knitting this hat! I used Colinette Prism, which is thinner than the suggested yarn. Made the medium instead of small to compensate and it fits my little head well. Knit on 10.5 needles. My sister has already requested one. Also plan on making one for my 3-year-old since she looks really  cute in mine.

Pattern: Groovy Sweater Dress/Twinkle's Big City Knits
Yarn: Twinkle Soft Chunky
Color: Urchin
Needles: sizes 17 and 19
Size: small

I really wanted the top "vine" to come out of one of the middle "rib" sections, but the decrease row for the ribbing was so vague I just could not make it work. In the book, the blue GSD photo shows it coming straight out of a rib and in the pink photo shows it like mine.

Next problem was on the neckline. The pattern said to turn, then bind off 2 sts, turn, bind off 2 sts (not looking at the pattern, but that's the idea). I might have done it wrong, but that bind off left me with holes. I may re-do the neckline if I can figure out what i did wrong.

I have never worn anything with bobbles, and I think I feel a little weird in it.

Finally took some pics today. Happy with how this turned out. It pulls up a little in the back. I think that might be due to the lofty nature of merino (versus the cotton).

I used Handpaintedyarn.com Merino Bulky in Bordeaux.

Finally my finishsd BFC. I finished the knitting last may (after redoing the neck 3 times) and just put the buttons on last week. The buttons are smaller than suggested in the pattern, but I like them better this size and they still stay closed. They are sterling silver and made by me. I made the small size, but kind of wish I had done a medium. Maybe it will stretch out a little with wear.

I love the "little black dress" in Runway Knits. Kpixie.com has details.

From the pattern description:  This cotton dress is refined enough to meet the parents for dinner but fetching enough to wear to a cocktail party.  Knit in stockinette stitch, it sports starlight lace embellishments on the sleeves and hemline that add both softness and chic allure to its vintage look.

I like some pinks and oranges together. I made the Jolly Roger sweater from Knit.1 in orange with a skull in a variegated colorway that had greens, blues, pinks and oranges.

The orange yarn is the bulky merino from handpaintedyarn.com and has some corally tones to it. The skull is colinette prism in Piero. Not a great pic, but maybe you can see the oranges and pinks.

7  La La Scarf in Knitting: Completed Projects by candicane on: May 24, 2007 07:51:10 AM
Pattern is from Greetings from Knit Cafe. I used Sublime Mohair on size 10 bamboo straights. I really enjoyed the pattern -- up until the picot bind off when it got a little tedious, but well worth the effort. I plan on making more as soon as I can get my hands on some Rowan KSH.

The seabury shell looks great!

Here are some preview pics of my BFC. I did not do the bobbles or the neck button. My neckline is bigger than I had envisioned, but I didn't want it too tight either. I'm going to wash it and put buttons on to see how it looks before I make any more alterations.

I have frogged this thing so many times, it is already in need of a sweater shaver before its first wear.

I used the Twinkle Soft Chunky in Pink 05. Modeled pics once I do the buttons.

Here is my Mini and Modified Karate Cardigan. I needed to use up this Elann Peruvian Cuzco that I have tried to knit into 3 other patterns, but did not like them. My gauge was way way off, so I guess I'm lucky it at least sort of fits. I really like the way the Dojo stitch looks in the fuzzy yarn. Seaming was not very fun though!

A progress picture! And a question, after I knit the 4 rows even on the back and work the decreases the pattern says to put the remaining 10 stitches on a holder. Are these the stitches that are picked up later for the collar?

Anyway to make the shoulder seamless?

Thanks,
Candice
