1  Re: Venezia from Interweave Winter 06 by Eunny Jang in Knitalongs by fragolina_piccolina on: September 27, 2007 06:32:48 PM
Ok, after visiting this page nearly every other day, looking at the charts in the magazine for about a week, and petting the intended yarn for a little over two weeks, I decided that I couldn't take it any longer!

I don't have the money to get the rest of the yarn as of right now... and I don't even have the recommended needles, but I just had to work from the chart! So I pulled out my size 1s and got to work on a simple 31 st piece... then switched them to size 2 dpns that I remembered having. I worked one chart repeat, and I'm in love!

Since this is my first fair isle, I'm not even sure I'm doing it correctly- see if you can see any inherent mistakes. Also, how does my carrying look? Is it necessary to twist the yarns when switching, as in intarsia? Or is it enough to just drop one yarn and pick up another? I'm learning a lot, but I'd like to know as much as possible before I jump into the full pattern in the next few weeks.

They're a bit fuzzy... I guess that's what happens when you're too anxious to wait for a little sunlight!

I finished these over a month ago, but have had my computer in the shop. Here are two FO pics- sorry they're not too artsy this time.





i used elastic in the top rib to keep them tight. I love 'em!

I'll join this knitalong, seeing as I've already started my Christmas crafting. My first present has been completed, the Print O'the Wave stole for my mom:


Already on the needles for other gifts are:
~Feather and fan lace scarf in knitpicks lace weight wool, grape jelly (halfway completed)
~Lizard ridge blanket in simply soft country blue, medium blue and dark blue, 7 squares completed

I'll post pics as I finish these, and add more (like, four more!).

4  Print O'the Wave Stole in Knitting: Completed Projects by fragolina_piccolina on: July 31, 2007 12:46:35 PM
This was also posted in the knitalong:


Specs
Pattern: Eunny Jang's Print O'the Wave Stole
Yarn: KnitPicks' Alpaca Cloud in Smoke, 1 1/2 skeins
Needles: Knit Picks Options, size 4
Time: 2 months off and on
Mods: I cut the pattern repeats widthwise down to 3, the lengthwise repeats to 28, and didn't graft the center. Even so, the shawl measured 5 feet in length, and a little over 20 inches wide after blocking- perfect for my petite mum! In fact, this shawl is actually a few inches taller than she is   Cheesy

And heres another, less nature-ful picture for dexterity:


And I almost forgot the close-up!


Last words...
This was amazing to knit! The pattern is very clear-cut, and completely easy to understand. Eunny is a talented knitter with an eye for balance and elegance- and is obviously very generous to offer this pattern for free on her web site. I would urge all knitters to take the leap into lace knitting, and this is a perfect first or second lace project. Coupled with Eunny's lace knitting tutorial, you couldn't go wrong  Wink

By using Eunny's pattern, I learned that size 4 needles are ideal for laceweight yarn, that shawls needn't be knit in one piece with the border included, and how to perfectly pick up sts and graft with yarn the thickness of double plied thread.

I'm planning on making 3 more for my bridal party. They all need to be completed by august of next year, so keep your eye out for more FO postings!

Ta-da!


I finished this a while ago, so here are the specs as I remember them...

Yarn: hand-dyed knitpicks merino bare dk weight
Needles: size 5 knitpicks circs
Time: a couple weeks off and on
Mods: only a little over one repeat completed, and the handles were of my own creation (not in the round). Also, the yarn is wool rather than cotton, and it was knit in a smaller gauge.

Plus, surprise!


*Ahem* please ignore my froggy pajama pants and the mess in the background.

I started these socks last night, after finally getting together the time (ok, and will) to dye the yarn and hang it to dry. I'm using knitpicks bare merino, and am spot on with gauge. In case you're wondering, these are my college team's colors. I can't wait for football season to start!



Oh, and please ignore the little holes in the heel- I obviously don't hold the yarn tight enough on a turn.

Done!



It's not the best picture, but I'm just glad that I was finally able to upload it  Grin Like I said previously, my comp has been going crazy, so it's taken forever to get this picture up.

I love it though! This tunic was incredibly cost-effective. Total, I used about 4 1/2 balls of elann sonata. I spent $11 including the 2 balls that I didn't use. I've never had a shirt that was so cheap! I'm planning on wearing it tomorrow to go wedding dress shopping, and hopefully it'll wear as well as I think.

I'm excited about washing this. Sonata fares incredibly well in the wash (and even in the dryer!), and a bit of fabric softener does wonders on it. So soft!

Anybody else have comments to make? It seems this knitalong has come to a standstill.

All of these pictures are magnificent!

After reading this thread, I was determined to figure it out... even though I didn't have photoshop 5.0 (all I had was the standard 3.0 that came with my computer). So I got adobe's free trial, and waited 4 hours for it to download (my internet has been so s..l..o..w these days!). Then... it stopped. Grrr! So I downloaded it again, and waited another four hours. An hour ago, I finally was able to open it and try my hand- it's so fun! I've gotten two "test pictures" done so far, and can't wait to buy the actual photoshop and use this technique on my upcoming wedding pictures!



and



I used the picture that I had from the entrelac scarf I made a little while ago, because of the different pinks. What do you guys think?

This was my first sweater and my first lace! The pattern was a little foggy when it came to the "upper body" part of each piece (I think... but it's been a year!), and I wasn't too fond of the arm pattern, so I extended the diamonds to the arms and changed the shape. It's functional and stylish, and it fits my mum perfectly (I obviously wasn't advanced enough in knitting to figure out gauge). I also used elann sonata, but still haven't taken a modeled pic. Here's a "grass is always greener" pic:




This was before the crab stitch (which was fun after some hook haggling) and the single mother of pearl button.

Hope you have as much fun knitting this as I did!
