1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Surplice Bodice Camisole from "Knitting Lingerie Style" on: July 06, 2008 05:25:29 AM
I know you guys are all about action shots, but trust me, you don't want to see my attempts at self-timer photos!

This is the Surplice Bodice Camisole from Joan McGowan-Michael's "Knitting Lingerie Style", which I finished a while ago but only just got round to taking a picture of. It's knit in Classic Elite Provence - I'm not usually a huge fan of 100% cotton, but this was quite well behaved. 'Twas the dullest thing in the world to knit, and no doubt it'll just fester at the back of my wardrobe, but in certain lights (like, say, near dark) it's rather cute. I think, anyway.

(There's slightly more information on my blog, if anyone wants specifics.)

4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Cocktail dress with an A-line skirt? on: May 13, 2008 01:32:47 AM
Well, the title says it all, really - I'm looking for a pattern for a cocktail dress with an A-line skirt. Everything I've come across so far is cut on the bias (emphatically not a good look for me!), and while I suppose I could alter them it would be really lovely not to have to. Other than that I'm not fussy really - interesting necklines, cut-away backs, embellishments, simple classic lines, random giant bows in peculiar places...I'm open to just about anything!

Any suggestions?

1) Those are brilliant!

2) I've never understood why the rest of my family doesn't find that line as hilarious as I do...

Edited to add: Ohh, and I can totally see those making great skipping rope handles!

Oh my goodness - please tell me what the "amigurumi collection 2" is and where I can get my hands on it, because I think I'm in love!

Edit: whoops, I've just realised that I'm on the crochet board and that I can't actually crochet. Oh well, there's a first time for everything...

Nope, not a trace of Sherlock Holmes! His is much more khaki-ish.

And I agree that it would look lovely with a skirt Smiley
8  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Re: Aleita Shell, Interweave Knits this spring on: April 01, 2008 07:35:02 AM
Oooh, I just finished this! A link to my post is here, if you're interested. I hugely enjoyed knitting it, and I'd have thought 9 skeins of the Bambou Soft was easily enough - I only used just over 500 yards (admittedly for the smallest size), and that was of a slightly finer-weight yarn.

Can't wait to see pictures!

(Edited to correct my curious inability to spell one-letter words...)
9  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Aleita Shell (with slightly oversized pictures, because I'm a techno-klutz) on: April 01, 2008 03:56:29 AM
Hooray, I finally got round to finishing my Aleita Shell from the Spring '08 issue of Interweave Knits! I followed the pattern moreorless exactly, just adding an extra waist increase and an underbust eyelet row, which I threaded a matching ribbon through. One day I really will learn to take semi-decent pictures of myself, honest. But until then:

And a close-up of the front bodice and underbust ribbon:

This was super fun to knit, and the yarn I used (Blue Sky Alpaca Silk Alpaca, hanging around from a ye olde frogged disaster) was absolutely gorgeous to work with. Hope you like it, despite my dubious photography skills!

Original and fun! And I absolutely love the streams of beads pouring from the teapot to the cup.
