1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Anthropologie inspired hoodie on: March 31, 2007 08:59:59 AM
I couldn't resist when I saw this hoodie I had to give it a try. Here's the result:

Here's the url : http://storage.canalblog.com/65/99/203645/11809485.jpg
It is crocheted from side to side in Bernat Super Saver, it is my first self-designed garnment and I love love love it. I am gonna try it in a finer cotton yarn for spring next to match a bit better the original Anthropologie one and to try and correct a couple of things, like the hood being too big.

Thanks for looking
2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / kntting/crocheting organizer (image heavy) on: December 20, 2006 09:35:57 PM
So I am taking a very long flight tomorrow and I needed something to carry my knitting/crocheting stuff in the plane. I came up with this :

The outside fabric is some corduroy I add laying around from another project.

The inside fabric is a weirdly unstable linen that I couldn't use for anything bigger than that.

The bigger pocket has a flap cause it is upside down when it is folded. It is the perfect size to carry circ's and circ's cords.

There is a smaller pocket for gauge check, thread, measuring tape ...
Behind the hook and needles , I can place folded patterns.

I made a bias strip to thread my stich markers on and some empty space for sewing needles , safety pins and such.

The colours are off, the inside fabric is white and bright red.
What do you think ?
3  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Drops Design cardigan on: December 04, 2006 04:36:10 PM
I finished this cardigan a couple of weeks ago from this
pattern the photos are awful but I like this cardi very much. It is done in Bernat's acrylic yarn wich is suprisingly very nice to wear. It took just  bit more than 2 giant balls and went very quickly as it is all tc . I think I'll make a second one in a much nicer yarn and a size smaller. The XXl is too big for my 47'' bust.
It is ( I hope !?!?) a lot more flattering in real life then in photos.

Please don't be scared of my face  Cheesy

Thanks for looking
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / short-rows and decreases on: November 21, 2006 10:15:47 PM
Hi everyone !

I'm new to crafster and to knitting and I have a question for the more experienced then me.I hope someone will be able to help me.  I want to try the shaped ribbed sweater from knit 'n style
 but I can't figure out how I will give a bit of shaping to it. There is more than 11 inches difference between my bust and my waist so as is I will either have something very baggy around the shoulder and waist or something very streched over my bust. Not good either way.
I thought about trying my hand at short-rowing to give the "girls" some room but to make the ribs radiate I must increase one stich on each side and decrease two stiches on the center every other round so I really don't know how I could add short-rows and maintain the pattern at the same time.

Any ideas to help me out ? Or should I forget about it and start something else ?
