1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / The best sweater so far - Gathered Pullover on: October 04, 2008 08:26:11 AM
This is a wonderful, easy pattern, even with the cable motif in the center.  It took me about 6 days to complete and besides a needle change and waist shaping, there were no other modifications.  I used about 800 yds of Henry's Attic Peruvian Tweed, which is just an awesome brown, bluish grey, copper color.  It was all knit on size #6 US knitpick option circulars. 

This is a perfect sweater for TX winters and I definitely plan on wearing it a lot!


2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Molly Ringwald and Raspy on: July 31, 2008 11:05:17 AM
I love Molly Ringwald.  It is my favorite top to date.  I used 2.5 skeins of Gloss on #4 US circular needles.  This was such an easy project, I turned it into an "in the round" project instead of flat.  I very tempted to knit another one!


Raspy is ok.  I don't love it but I don't hate it.  Knit on #4 US circulars and with 8 balls of Cotlin, it's definitely warm enough.  I like that it looks unique and trendy, not your typical stockinette stitch sweater.  Because I knit it in the round instead of flat, I misinterpreted some of the dropped stitches and therefore they're just stuck in there randomly.  I'm thinking of frogging and starting it over because I think it's too long.

Thank you!

The shoes are from Bakers.  I have a pair in black and white polka dots and white and black polka dots.  I'm kind of a shoe hoor.   Cheesy

Another wonderful Kat Coyle design.  I just adore all her skirt patterns!  Knit with 7 skeins of cotlin from knitpicks and on #4 US 24" Knitpick options circulars.  It was a very simple project, the bobbles became tedious afterwhile but taking apart the dropped stitches was extremely satisfying and fun!


5  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Emily's Dress on: May 21, 2008 03:32:10 PM
Knit on size #4 US Knit Pick circulars and with about 2.75 skeins(all together) of Buckingham from Bristol Yarn Gallery.  This dress took me about a week and I'm thinking of redoing the top to make straps because strapless is probably too mature for an eight year old (she requested strapless.)

With bra.  I love that the dress completely hides it!

7  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / My very first design on: May 11, 2008 07:03:04 PM
It took me about a month and I redid the top several times before I found something I liked.  I used about eight balls of Rowan Calmer and used #6 US knit pick options circular needles. 

It definitely looks better on my body form due to the whole "bust" area and I suppose I could redo it to fit my own bust, but I don't think I want to even go there.

First off, the modifications.

1.  Waist decreases.  I believe I did a set of 6, two on both front and back pieces, every 6th row.

2.  I omitted the yoke short rows completely.

3.  The sleeves were knit flat and seamed.  I only chose to do it this way because I did not like how it looked done on two circulars and dpn's.  I cast on 52 stitches for the sleeves which is what the pattern said for the smallest size.I omitted all the increases for the forearm area, knit until I got a little above the elbow and increased to 60 stitches for the bicep, every 6th row. 

4.  The collar(neck) isn't nearly as long as it calls for in the pattern.  I just tried it on and when I thought it looked good I bound off.

5.  The yoke decreases were the most difficult because of the moss stitch.  In order to make it look good I had to wing it and found the easiest way was to make two decreases together to match up with the stitch below. 

In terms of numbers, I followed the pattern almost exactly.  I went down to size 4 needles, cast on for the smallest measurement, and went down to about 150(approx) stitches for the waist.  I did not make any bust increases. 

I used moss stitch because I think it looks more feminine than garter. 
9  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Cobblestone for Her on: January 04, 2008 07:22:10 PM
I finally finished it after what seems like an eternity but in reality was only 3.5 weeks.  It 5 skeins of Elsbeth Lavold Silky Wool, and I used #4 US and #5 US circular needles.  The original pattern is for a men's sweater so I did a lot of modifications in order to get it to work for a woman, mainly waist shaping, and the use of moss stitch instead of garter.  I love the way it turned out!

10  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Cobblestone and Koolhaas on: November 23, 2007 07:12:24 PM
It's a big ol Brooklyntweed fest going on here!

Cobblestone was done in O-Wool Balance.  It's an awesome yarn, organic cotton and wool.  I used just under 10 skeins on #7 needles.


Koolhaas was done in Shibui Merino Alpaca and with #8 needles.  The pattern was a breeze to memorize and I only used one skein!
