1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Completed Lillian on: February 19, 2008 03:50:19 PM
This is a great project, actual knitting time went by ver fast.
Sitting on the couch waiting for me to pick it up, well that's another story. But alas, it is finished



I had thought about not blocking it, I love the lace pattern the way it is, but the neckline is a little too 'gappy' for me. so on the blocking board she will go.

Size 6 addi turbo circs
2 1/2 skeins of LB Cotton Ease in Candy Blue

Thats the mod I have been waiting for, I might give it a go now.
Nice job, nice fit !
The neckline is the reason I put off doing this for so long. I just didn't feel like fiddling with it. But it didn't take too much time.
O.K. that and the monotonous K1P1. But as I said earlier, it was all worth it. I love it.

I finished the new sweater yesterday. 8 solid days of k1p1, but I think it was worth it.
I made a few mods, nothing major.
I used size 8 addi turbos and LB Cotton Ease


I knit for 15" before the sleeves and when I got to the neckline, I frogged this bad boy three times till I finally got it to fit the way I wanted it to.
I really like the neck the way I did it.


After the decrease round, I knit one round, then did a k2tog all the way around, then I followed the directions for the neckband, but I only used five sts instead of 11.
I like it better this way.

Thanks for looking.

Where did you get the mat that you are blocking the sweater on?! I could totally use one of those!

Thanks,

Thank you everyone for the comments on the sweater. Even though I live in the south, and winter only lasts typically 3 months where I live, I hate....hate cold weather, I can't wait for it to finish drying so I can wear it to work.

As for the mat, my Husband and I made it years ago, out of a science project back board, a whole roll of clear packing tape, a magic marker and a yard stick.
My DH helped me count of inches going up and across and we marked them all with a yard stick, then I taped the whole thing up with the clear packing tape.
It looks hokey in person, I can't draw a straight line even with a yard stick.LOL
But it serves it's purpose.

This is my absolute favorite sweater. Even though this is going to have be hand washed, it is still going to get a once a week wearing.
The pattern is the Lucy Cardigan from CosmicPluto
http://www.cosmicpluto.com

It took me about ten days to finish. And the buttons are from my stash, bought for who knows what many years ago.

Knit with Ice Yarns Baby Alpaca and Cashmere on size 6 needles

 Cool
Bella keeps ear infections, and after fighting her at the fair for four hours to keep her hat on, I had an idea.
You don't see very many earflap hats where I am from in Alabama, and I can't for the life of me figure out why, especiall when they look this cute........




The pattern came from here:
http://heyjulie.wordpress.com/2007/03/20/babykids-earflap-hat/

The yarn is Caron's Simply Soft with size five needles.
Wanted to try it out on acrylic before I did wool.
I think it came out pretty cute. What do you think?

I have a love hate relationship with headbands, they either are so tight my brain can feel the pinch, or they fall off my weird shaped head. That was until today......


Excuse the bathroom picture, no photographers available.

I knit mine with 100% superwash merino on size five needles for 19" and added three buttonholes and purple buttons, it feels more secure atop the old noggin that way.



I used this pattern:

It was a great pattern, easy to follow and memorize. Now I think I could whip one out for everyone on ye ole Christmas List.

All comments and criticism  welcome.
