1  more sock yarns! in Dyeing: Completed Projects by rockadot on: June 20, 2007 08:03:52 PM
I came up with two new colorways this week. What do you all think?

The first is called "Martha" after my favorite customer at the yarn store I work at...the second is called "elizajam" which is my secret identity/alter ego superstar DJ name.

2  RPM socks in Knitting: Completed Projects by rockadot on: June 07, 2007 02:03:40 PM
These are the RPM socks from knitty. I sized up the pattern to 72 stitches to fit my boyfriend.


I used two skeins of Koigu KPPPM (I lost the ball band, sorry...)

More details on my blog.

4  Best Ever Jaywalkers! in Knitting: Completed Projects by rockadot on: April 24, 2007 03:36:22 PM
Well, I think they're the best ever...

I used Claudia Hand Paint in Red Wagon. I'm pretty much in love with them.

There's more details on my blog

5  Wicked Sweater in Knitting: Completed Projects by rockadot on: April 09, 2007 11:34:38 AM

The pattern is Wicked from Zephyr Style knit in Cascade 220

It's mostly stockinette, so knitting it was kind of boring...but I do most of my knitting in class lectures lately so this was actually really fantastic. Mindless, but still entertaining. I knit most of it in the dark during videos.

There's more details and pictures on my blog.

6  Feather and Fan socks in Knitting: Completed Projects by rockadot on: April 05, 2007 05:25:00 PM

I used Claudia Handpaints in Turquoise Jeans and Wendy's free Feather and Fan pattern. I kind of omitted the last row of the pattern, so the cuffs pucker and roll a little but I kind of like it that way! They're super comfortable, too.

More details on my blog.

8  Pattern Query - Bridie Cardigan in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by rockadot on: September 10, 2006 09:11:58 PM
This is a little long-winded, I'm sorry...

I'm working on the Bridie Cardigan which looks like this:

I'm working on the Left front which is the "smaller" side (?). So I'm assuming that the left side of the cardigan has to conform to the extend flap of the right side.

The pattern says to place a marker 3 stitches in on the WS and increase every 10 rows until I have 7 stitches to the left of the marker. When my work is 10.5 inches I am supposed to shape for the neck at the same time as I am doing the increases. So far, I am up to 5 stitches to the left of the marker and am ready to start the neck shaping.

The problem: the pattern reads "(RS) Pattern to last 3 sts, K2tog, K1." This means that I would be decreasing at the same spot that I am increasing and therefore will never make it up to 7 stitches.

Have I found a typo? Am I just crazy? I'd be willing to divulge some more details of the pattern to someone who might want to message me (the pattern isn't for sale anymore so I'm not sure how much is too much to post publicly).

9  Re: Baudelaire - Knitty Summer '06 in Knitalongs by rockadot on: July 15, 2006 05:13:32 PM
I got my yarn, Koigu KPM in a lavendar. I started my first couple of rows, too. I'm so glad these socks are toe-up. It makes the sock knitting go so much faster!

the first picture is truer to the color
