1591  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: Greeting From Knit Cafe Skirt on: May 14, 2007 04:42:57 PM
I subbed the yarn. I just used Sugar and cream cotton in softly taupe and then a ribbon yarn I found at the store that had similar taupe and brown colors for the bows. I even got the yarn in the super sized balls on sale. The skirt ended up being right around $25 for the yarn and extra needle I needed to buy. I was happy with that price  Smiley
1592  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Question about Fillet Crochet on: May 14, 2007 04:36:35 PM
Has anyone made anything in fillet crochet? If so, how exactly do you read the pattern? I want to make a tank from the book Knitting Loves Crochet. It is the tank on the cover (link below). I read the pattern, but it doesn't seem like the stitches in the pattern are the same as the pattern. Anything that anyone has to say about fillet crochet will be helpful as I don't know much about it. Thanks!

1593  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / Sweat Pea Shawl! on: May 14, 2007 06:58:03 AM
I finished this yesterday. I love it!

(Sorry the picture is fuzzy and the cat is in the way. He always wants to be in the middle of everything.)




1594  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Crochet Earrings and Necklace from Craftivity Pattern on: May 14, 2007 06:55:05 AM
I finished these earrings and the necklace in a couple of hours. I got the pattern from the book Craftivity. The necklace pattern is in the book, for the earrings I just made two of the smaller circles and put them on the hooks. I gave them to my mom for her birthday and then took her out to lunch and she was wearing them and got compliments twice in about 10 minutes from two different strangers. I was very happy about that. Sorry that the picture is kind of fuzzy. I don't have the best digital camera.

This is amazing. I must have missed the pattern in Knitty, but it looks wonderful on you. I can't imagine the patience it had to take. You did a very excellent job.

The pattern wasn't too hard, but it was a lot of work. Making the lace panels is what took the longest. Also, working the waist band and the band above the lace at the bottom was kind of hard because there were lots of yarn overs and the yarn was really tight on the needles and basically my hands got sore working on it. I definitely got some hand cramps from this one, but I don't see any reason why anyone shouldn't do it. The reward is so great!

I am curious. How are you attaching the paper to the walls?
1598  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: Greeting From Knit Cafe Skirt on: May 13, 2007 06:14:39 PM
I haven't lined it. The knit is pretty tight, and I guess I haven't decided if I want to yet or not. Thanks for all the compliments. Thewench- If you go to the store let me know if you like it. I would be very curious to know what the store is like.

Thanks for your compliments! It is good to hear it from other knitters and not just from my husband!

In reply to the tiny stitches, I did it on size 6 and the lace was on size 5 (or maybe it was the other way around...) It didn't seem so bad until the last half of the last panel. I couldn't wait to finish!

As for the question is Greetings from Knit Cafe worth buying, well I don't really think so for me. I got the book from the library. Sometimes I go buy the book after I take it back to the library, other times I don't. This one I didn't. It has beautiful pictures and a large variety of patterns, but the skirt was the only pattern I personally liked.

I recently finished this skirt. The pattern is in Greeting from Knit Cafe. It is also the skirt she is wearing on the front of the book. I made an oops in the beginning on the lace pattern at the bottom, but I just kept with it the whole way through and it turned out fine. There is a picture of me in the skirt from the front and back, the skirt laying on my bed, and then a close up of the lace work where it meets the solid part of the top.









I have to say that this is probably one of the most time consuming projects I have completed, but I am very happy with the results.
