1  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Mr Greenjeans along anyone? on: September 20, 2007 06:24:28 AM
I have been obsessed with this pattern ever since the new Knitty came out.

http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEfall07/PATTgreenjeans.html

I placed my first Webs order on Sunday, and received the yarn lastnight, Ella Ray classic wool, in a Green/Pink/Grey colorway (and forgot to take a photo of the yarn).

I just need to finish one quick shawl thats on the needles, and I plan to swatch and CO this weekend!

Anyone want to join?

ETA:  Here is the yarn I'm using

2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / The Cap Shawl from Victorian Lace Today on: May 01, 2007 04:14:49 PM
Pattern: The Cap Shawl from Victorian Lace Today



Yarn: Misti Alpaca Lace, three balls
Needles: Knit Picks Options size 4, the two standard size cords that came with the pack, plus 4 size 4 Susan Bates DPN's.
Size: Blocked out to 5 feet, which is smaller than the one in the book, but since I downsized both the yarn and needles, I'm happy with the size.
Time: A little over 7 weeks.
What I learned: Circular cast on and circular shawl construction. I loved working on this shawl, since it was (mostly) comprised of knit stitches. There were a few rows of purl stitches on the outer edge that drove me crazy, and I did leave one row off completely.
Pinning it out was less of a hassle than I expected it to be. One of my tape measures had a hole at the start that I was able to pin in the center and I used that to get all my points to the same length.

There are more pictures available on my blog.
