Here's somthing I've been picking up and putting down for a couple weeks

They're pretty fun and easy and I think they'd look really cute over a bright red pair of gloves.

Love them!!  Thanks for putting all your great patterns out there for free. You should submit something to knitty.

Actually, I've submitted to knitty twice since they've started by my designs never make the cut. Maybe I'll try again some other time. I just love that site and it's part of what motivated me to get back into knitting.

geez, now it will seem like I am stalking your posts.....I'm so like "oooooo, Marnie!!!!!" but, WOW...is this something a kinda sorta newbie could knit, or is it really really hard? I suck at following patterns, because they always look so overwhelming when I first read them... Huh

Stalk away, it's all good  Grin
This should be an easy pattern to follow as there are no decreases or increases, just work the pattern straight. The lace is relatively simple or you could just knit it plain.
I would love to know someone made one of my projects. hehe And, you could always ask me if you had questions and I'd be happy to help out.

that gothic lace top seems like it would be perfect for knitty! maybe cause it has so much crocheting they didn't want to feature it. it seems like a lot of hardcore knitters are really anti-crochet!

i have a ball of Simone yarn that i might try to use for that critter purse sometime....as soon as i'm done with the 2398787 other projects i have going already  Roll Eyes

I'm a big fan of your legwarmers. In fact, I like them a lot more than the ones featured on the Knitty site. Unfortunatly, I have giant calves and short legs---I try to draw as little attention to both as possible. So legwarmers are probably not an option for me (though they would probably look pretty cool with a pair of high heels...may have to try them after all).

The almost gloves are on my list, though. I think in black with hot pink stretchy gloves underneath (I'm on a hot pink kick these days).

Anjalita,
The lace runs over 11 stitches so if you are working the left glove, from right to left you will have
one stitch, then eleven stitches of lace pattern, then the rest are worked in the rib pattern following the stitches from the previous rows.
That means that row one of the lace would be worked as
K1,<lace> K1, yo, k2tog, k5, k2tog, yo, k1 </lace> ribbing to end

Does that help at all?

Impossiblecalm,
I've submitted the leg warmers to knitty but never tried to submit the gothic lace, and I've just found out they are going to discontinue the yarn I used, which is a shame because it's fun and drapy and sexy. I'll try contacting the publisher of Knitty and see if she likes any of the other designs, it helps getting all this great input from people, it's giving me confidence. Cheesy

Tivasmom,
I'm so glad you like my leg warmers. One of the reasons I worked the varrigated yarn sideways is so that it would have vertical instead of horizontal stripes...much more flattering Wink If you do happen to make any of my patterns will you promise to send pictures?

I took my own lil spin on these things, more because I ran out of yarn than any real attempt at creativity





I used berroco denim silk and trensetter yarns dune for the double stranded part, which is really just the start of Marnie's patter until halfway up the first lace repeat (when I ran out of the spangly yarn).  So I just bound off there, and thought I'd lost.

Sad Ne, right?  Nope.  I then knit a 2x2 ribbed cuff, then stitched it on to the bottom with room for a thumbhole.  I feel just a bit punk, but sparkly as well.

P.S.  Lookit my gigantic hands!

Ne,
You really took the idea and made it your own. That's a really fun and quick approach to the idea. Sparkly is always good Smiley

Anjalita, please don't feel too frustrated. Remember, I'm a novice pattern writer and it's on me to write it well enough to be understood so I apologize for being so unclear. I'm always happy to help, though, if that makes a difference. Hang in there!

Wow those gloves are great and i'd love to give them a go. I have printed out the pattern (thanks so much for having them on line Smiley)

I have a couple of questions for you, I'm in New Zealand and can't find ZITI any wear, what kind of weight of wool is it?
also you say #13 needles, are they really big like 13mm or small.
Sorry for the questions but even my great lady at the local wool shop wasn't able to help me out.
Thanks Smiley

Excellent questions, sbub.
Ok, first of all, all my patterns are in imperial measurments (inches) and US needle sizes (big ol' #13 needles)
The yarn Ziti is a custom made yarn by Artfibers. They don't have it up on their site but I know they have it in stock, so I highly recommend you email them. yarn@artfibers.com
If you don't wish to do that, the yarn is a microfiber that is matte with a spiral vein of shimmer running through it. It's very stretchy and soft. I'm not sure I've really seen anything like it but if you find something with a little stretch that will give you the proper guage, you should be in good shape.

Please let me know if you have any other questions. I love any input, good or bad.

US size #13 is 00 in English sizes and 9 in metric sizes.  Not sure which is the standard sizing for New Zealand.

I really need to learn to knit. I learned how to crochet first, and so now I am having a hard time....perhaps I need to get a book

Goddess,
Maybe you should start a thread asking people who have learned from a book, what they recommend. i learned from a book, but I was also in the third grade, so I don't really recall what I used or how. Further, I learned in a manner that would likely be dubbed "wrong" since my stitches always face the opposite direction they are supposed to. It doesn't bother me or hold me back, but it is a possible outcome when you learn on your own.
I always tell people who get frustrated with knitting that they should think back to the first time they used a computer mouse, and how odd that seemed. In time, we all acclimate. If you want to knit, definitely stick with it.

sbub   Cool
WOW, you did an awesome job on those. They look perfect.
I can't believe you've never followed a pattern before. Was it painful? haha

Thanks for showing what you did. It's such a wonderful feeling to know someone else wanted to make something I designed.
