1  FO: hourglass sweater (last minute knitted gifts) in Knitting: Completed Projects by knitticle on: November 06, 2006 05:26:56 PM
(Clickety-click to enlarge)
Pattern: Hourglass Sweater from Last Minute Knitted Gifts by Joelle Hoverson
Yarn: Cascade 220 (100% Peruvian Wool) spruce, 5 skeins
Mods: Unintentionally lengthened the sleeves (read wrong size bracket--D'OH)

Weee! I love finished objects--here's me digging up an old FO to distract myself from the WIP sitting on my desk as we speak. Smiley This sweater was finished last January (ummm...  Roll Eyes) and has been sitting in a box under my bed for the past two seasons, whilst I've been waiting eagerly to take it out. And lo, it's cold again! So back comes the sweater into rotation. I finally had a chance to take some pictures of it, and that's a good thing, since this was the first wearable sweater I ever finished. Ohhh...do I love it.

This is one of my favorite patterns and I recommend it to just about everyone (sorry if you've been one of those people. but seriously, it's a great pattern). Next time I make it, if I do, I'll use a softer yarn, though, and go down a size. I talk about this a little more (but not much) on my ever-so-uninformative blog.

More pictures here (another generic shot) and here (obligatory thumbs up nerdlinger pose).

Wee this knit's going really fast! I started about a week ago, and after a few episodes of Curb and Arrested Development I've got about 9 inches done  Smiley This stitch pattern definitely makes for easy TV knitting, people. Highly recommended!



Is anyone else using KnitPicks Wool of the Andes? I have nine balls, but am kind of scared I'm going to run out, because I'm on the third ball already and haven't even finished the third increase.

sigh..the photo is too small for me to tell if I really would want to make it or not...I looked for an elarged view link but couldn't find one.
diosaperdida, if you're still considering this project, there are a few pictures at the knitalong website if you scroll down a bit, on the sidebar.

Question: Do you really need the 32" circulars for this pattern or could you use smaller ones?

Nope, you can use the needles you already have. I think the 32" is reccomended because of alllll the stitches you need to pick up around the neckline. It's possible to use a smaller needle (I did) as long as you're comfortable with the stitches scrunched up pretty tight (for eight rows it's really no problem)

Anyway...hey guys! I'm a bad knitalonger  *hands head in shame* Sad I finished Ms. Marigold about three weeks ago but hadn't had the chance to take pictures of it until recently.

I've worn this to school a few times and love it!  Although my favorite part has to be the color. Frog tree pima silk = faaaaabulous shades, but a little splitty. It was worth it, though.  Smiley More info on the blog.

4  FO: Ms. Marigold in Knitting: Completed Projects by knitticle on: September 15, 2006 06:16:33 PM

Have you seen enough of these yet?  Tongue

Pattern: Ms. Marigold from Zephyr Style
Yarn: Frog Tree Pima Silk (85% Pima Cotton, 15% Silk, 155 yards) 4 skeins
Mods: I basically followed the pattern as written, save for knitting the size 38" instead of the 34" due to gauge shenanigans.

I wore this to the first day of school...(yay!)...about three weeks ago...(nay! I'm a bad knit blogger!) It's a winner, most definitely, although I picked a bad time to finish it, as it's just starting to get cold in my neck of the woods. I mean, I'll still wear it, I'll just freeze.  Cheesy (Will I put my flip-flops away, though? Never.) If you're looking for a fairly quick knit for a fairly minimal amount of yarn, this may be the project for you.

As always, my pictures are not the best, so I'm going to present quantity over quality!

More (excrutiating) details over at da blog.

5  FO: knit.1 plaid turtleneck in Knitting: Completed Projects by knitticle on: August 07, 2006 04:31:13 PM

My first post! Eeee I'm nervous!

Pattern: Plaid Turtleneck #13 from Knit.1 Fall 2005
Yarn: Lion Brand Wool-Ease, 4 skeins chocolate brown, less than one skein camel
Mods: Scaled down the color scheme to two colors, shortened the sleeves to 3/4 length (I always find myself rolling up long sleeves) and omitted the turtleneck, because I have a strange aversion to turtlenecks for reasons unknown *cough* makes me look like I have a DOUBLE CHIN *cough*

Sorry the picture is so big...and of such dubious quality...I'm not good with my camera's self-timer, and there was no way I was going to keep a wool sweater on for much longer than 10 seconds because I believe it was 576 degrees outside.  Wink  Here's a link to another photo--quantity over quality!

I go into a little more detail on my knitting blog </shameless self promotion>  Grin
