1  Re: Anybody for Breeze? in Knitalongs by DeadDisco on: July 30, 2007 09:55:58 AM
Already finished a pair of these, using one skein of koigu! I highly recommend this pattern--goes fast, and they're the perfect height for sneakers in the summer.

2  Finished Hederas and a Big Bamboo! in Knitting: Completed Projects by DeadDisco on: May 15, 2007 04:19:29 PM
Ah! Finally finished these! I leeerve them, which is probably mostly my feelings for the yarn talking (Colinette Jitterbug in the Jay colorway.) Had to do the heel my own way to make them smaller, but other than that they're pretty much straight from the pattern:



Also, here is numero uno of my first self-designed socks. The pattern for the leg is a modified version of the Big Bamboo stitch pattern from Vogue Stitchtionary Vol. I, hence the name--The Big Bamboo Socks!



Check the blog for action/detail shots, if you're interested.  Wink Thanks for looking!

4  Atia in Knitting: Completed Projects by DeadDisco on: January 31, 2007 03:44:41 PM
Here she is! I decided to call this sweater Atia because I've become addicted to that show Rome. This is the first sweater I've ever designed myself, so be kind Smiley





This was knit almost totally in the round, with a garter stitch lace panel in the front. Knit with Cascade 220 in Amethyst Heather. Thanks for looking!

Finished! Well, I still need to block 'em, but the ends are woven in, they've been tried on, they fit; for all intents and purposes, they're done, baby! Here are a boatload of pictures, because I leeeerv them  Grin







I used three balls of Katia Austral for these, which I bought on sale for two bucks a ball. Looking back, I imagine the reason the yarn was so cheap ties in closely with its ridiculous color. I'm delighted I finally found a use for it, and I love love love these socks. Thank you, Cookie, for designing such cool sock patterns for us to play with! Here is all the yarn I had left, and most of these are the remnants of the ends I wove in. Love it when this happens:

I'm still working away on the first of my Bauds, but here's progress so far. I cannibalized a bracelet of orange wooden beads, and am including them at regular intervals up the back of the sock. I also want them to be long socks, so I had to add a few increases in the purl sections on either side of the cables to ensure the sock would fit over my womanly calf  Wink It's kind of hard to take a picture of a sock you're wearing, isn't it?

7  Re: 100 Yen Shop Scarf in Knitting: Completed Projects by DeadDisco on: February 12, 2006 03:27:03 AM
hey, i have the exact same yarn but in pink and purple tones.
i found it a bit hard to knit with, especially when the yarn gets really thin. i tried to knit really tight there.
but i like what you did, just going wtih the flow....
maybe i'll get the rest of that giant ball out tonight....

great job deaddisco!!!



Very cute! I like the pink and purple, I haven't seen that colorway before. I agree that it was difficult to knit with, but I thought it was the big slubs that were the tricky part  Wink

8  100 Yen Shop Scarf in Knitting: Completed Projects by DeadDisco on: February 10, 2006 08:31:07 AM
I knit this up tonight to give to a friend for her birthday tomorrow. I was really surprised that it came out so well! The scarf was knit with funky slub yarn that I bought at the 100 yen shop, and alternates between straight stockinette and dropped stitch sections. The flower is Lion Brand Fisherman's Wool that I had lying around. I think it has cyber-urban flava! Happy Birthday Jo!

9  Finished 'Air' from Rowan Calmer Collection in Knitting: Completed Projects by DeadDisco on: November 04, 2005 08:41:06 AM
Just finished my Air, done up in the recommended Rowan Calmer. I still have to find the perfect buttons, but I decided to leave off the pocket flaps because they looked kind of silly. Enjoy!

10  Virginian firefly in Nippon in Halloween Costumes by DeadDisco on: October 27, 2005 07:18:31 AM
I'm a NoVA girl living in Japan for the year, teachin' the English to Japanese middle schoolers. The town I'm living in is famous for its annual firefly festival (and little else.) Thus, I felt it my duty to dress up as a hotaru (firefly) and show my Tatsuno pride. I'm attending a big Halloween party two towns over on Saturday, and I just finished my costume. The best thing about it is, aside from the clothes which I already had, everything came from the 100 yen shop (like a dollar store, but <I>so</I> much better).
Hat = yarn from the 100 yen shop
Tail = tap light, gift wrap netting, belt, double stick and clear tape...all from the 100 yen shop
Wings = wire, pliers, pantyhose, glitter glue from, you guessed it, the 100 yen shop.



The funny thing about the Tatsuno firefly festival is that the insects are not native to this area, so they breed them specifically for the festival and then they all die like a week later. Kind of lends the costume an air of the macabre...right?
