163  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Minneapolis area yarn shops--which are your favorites? on: September 10, 2007 05:56:37 AM
it's on weaver lake/85th, near those new town homes, right across from the gravel pits.  it's in a strip mall with a state farm and some sort of work out place among other business.  i like them too.  i buy my needles there Smiley

i work with all recycled yarn so i shop mainly at earth exchange in maple grove.  you get a 50% off coupon every time you bring a donation too Smiley

Eh, it'll do for a prototype.  There are sorta big holes in the armpits because I picked the stitches up rather than put them on stitch holders <doh>  Putting them on stitch holders will also eliminate the "seam"  I believe.  I think I'll use a smaller needle for the body for the one's I may put up for sale.  I  used a bigger needle A) because this was just a prototype and I wanted to hurry, and B) I was going for a nice open, breathable sweater perfect for early fall, but with the recycled yarn, it's hard to block it into shape when knit on large needles.  So I think I'll use a different stitch pattern next time with a smaller needle.  I think I did pretty well for working without a pattern and never having read a top down sweater pattern before.

Anyway, here she is:




This next one is true color.  The flash was on in the first one, but I didn't want to redo it cause  I didn't want my neighbors to see me  taking pics of myself :hee

Hay fellow knitters.  I love looking through this forum for inspiration and motivation.  I just wanted to show you all some of the neat items I've knitted recently in hopes to inspire and motivate some of you!

This first one is just a cute racerback top



this thread i dyed myself.  it was my first handpainted batch.  i used dharma's nt pigment dye.  I'll use fiber reactive dyes from now on.  This stuff fades like crazy Sad



This next one is one of my favorites.  It was a nice blend of angora/ramie/cotton and so soft and flowey.



And I finally made something for myself.  It's just a simple babydoll tank, but ti's awesome and I love it.  I think I'll amke a shrug to go with it so I can wear it all winter long!



And a funky felted tote!





Oh, and all the yarn used for all these projects (and all my projects) are made from recycled yarn.  It's a bit tedious ripping/unwinding but it's so much cheaper then buying new yarn and it feels really good knowing that I've recycled/repurposed unwanted clothing!

Thanks for looking everyone!
