If no pics show up, please go to http://knitfreak81.blogspot.com directly. Thanks

I have been busy with school and knitting but too lazy posting Tongue Well, here are some of things I have knitted lately. Enjoy and thanks for looking. I am so inspired by Craftster.org and all you generous souls for sharing patterns so freely. Special thanks to julsey723 and LeSophie for your generosity in sharing your patterns with me (and everyone) that are featured in this post. My thanks are way overdue!

This is LeSophie's version of Glampyre's Ubernatural. If it wasn't for LeSophie's explanations of the pattern, I would have been very lost. I also made the neckline smaller and made the sleeves 3/4 length. I used Lion Brand's Homespun. I used only 1 stand because I didn't want it to be too bulky.



This is julsey723's pattern of Anthropolgie-inspired capelet. The picture doesn't do it justice. I really love this pattern. It was simple and quick. I used Joann's sensation wool and cotton blend. Love it!




This is one of my favorite sweaters. It took forever, but I am glad I made it. This is Tempting from Knitty.com. I used Caron's soft acrylic yarn. It is very comfortable.


This was a costly one. This top is very Rowan's Summer collectipn book and Rowan's cotton and braids yarn. Too expensive for my student budget....good thing the book and yarn were a gift from my fiance for my birthday. Smiley



Last and definitely not least, a sleeveless turtleneck from a book I got from Joann's. I used Lion's brand thick and quick Lumberjack red to make it. I likey.



Thank you for looking. I hope that one day I too can contribute to Craftster's. Adios!

I believe blogger disallows hotlinking to images, but I don't know for sure. Anyway, here are the links to the photos (in order of mention)

Great job. The Tempting Sweater looks fab. And I really love what you did with the Ubernatural. It looks comfortable and attractive!

And you! You look so good in your sweaters and you did such a great job on them! Why are you not smiling?  Grin

Somehow my comments got dumped out so I'll say again - FABULOUS JOB!  They all seem to fit you perfectly and you have worked so hard!  Thank you for sharing.

Also, thanks for the thanks - I'm happy I could help and also that I could bring more attention to the fabulous glampyre's neglected ubernatural pattern!  I wish magknits would use my (or someone's) corrections so more people would end up with this great sweater.  I love how yours has a more "lacey" effect to it - I may have to do it again!

I love the lelah top and the Tempting sweater, the Rowans summer collection tank, and the Isabeau purse it is fabulous the way it is but I am not a big fan of zippers so I wouldn't add one. They are all nice though. One day I'm going to get up to the sweaters too. I am just starting out so it'll be a while.

There will always be people who say mean words  because you are different, and sometimes their minds cannot be changed. There are many more people who do not judge others based on how they look or where they are from. THOSE are the people whose WORDS truly matter.

Hi lumpui!

Great stuff!!! I love them all. You have contributed to Crafster!

Can you tell me what size needle you used for the Ubernatural? I love that yours looks lacy and want the same effect. I am inspired to use Homespun for the first time ever!  Cheesy

Hey loisgriffinwannabe,

Thanks for the compliments!  For the ubernatural, I used size 15 for the beginning part (neck to chest) and then size 13 for the ribbing (tummy part) and size 13 also for the sleeves.  I have always been a fan of homespun.  The only compliant I have about this yarn is that b/c it's curly, it's difficult to see if you have made a mistake until you have finished and look at it closely....perhaps, that's a good thing for someone who is not as anal as me.  I also used single strand instead of double even though it is not extra bulky like the pattern called for. 

I LOVE Family Guy by the way....It's freakin' hilarious.

Cheers,

Lumpui
