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.

3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Show-Off Ruffle Skirt on: June 21, 2008 08:06:30 PM
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!

4  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.)







5  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. 























6  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!

7  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!

8  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Beaded(less) Cami - Black Dog Designs on: September 22, 2007 08:25:12 PM
http://lilybeth.wordpress.com/2007/09/22/beadless-cami/

It's wonderful!  Awesome pattern, quick, just an awesome outcome!  I love it so much.  Am wondering if you think it looks better with or without straps and beads? 

I used about 3.5 balls of Classic Elite Wool Bam Boo, which might possibly be the most awesome yarn ever and used #6 US knit pick circulars.






9  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Basic Baby Doll and Panty-Knitting Lingerie Style on: September 16, 2007 03:11:01 PM
http://lilybeth.wordpress.com/2007/09/16/basic-baby-doll-and-panty/

This was a cute project.  Turned out nicely.  Made a few modifications most noticeably the deletion of the split front, despite that major change I think it turned out ok.  I knit it with berroco bonsai and used #4,#6,#8 US Knit pick options.  I really don't think I'd wear it ever again... but my husband really liked it.  LOL!

10  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Crisp Rectangle Tunic Top - Fitted Knits on: August 30, 2007 06:32:37 PM
http://lilybeth.wordpress.com/2007/08/30/crisp-rectangle-tunic-top/

Knit on #7 US and #5 US Knit pick circulars and with about 8 skeins of Berroco Softwist... this was definitely a labor of love... or rather started out being one but ended up a labor of determination.
