1  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Wisp from Knitty on: June 12, 2007 08:39:36 AM
I saw this yesterday afternoon, went to the LYS after work, and finished the first 2 repeats of the pattern last night. 
Anyone else going to be knitting this?

I was going to buy Kidsilk Haze but they only had darker colours and I wanted something pale so I wound up getting a different yarn, I can't remember the brand right now, but it looks exactly the same as KSH, in a pale blue.
Join me please, I need someone to help motivate me  Smiley
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Simple Knitted Bodice on: March 22, 2007 04:36:58 PM

I finished this one a while ago.  The yarn is Karabella Aurora 8, I knit the smallest size on size 5 needles, because I didn't get gauge, and didn't want to go to a smaller needle with this yarn.  
I made modifications as I went.  Took out the purl ridges, and made the lace sections shorter.
Pattern can be found at stitchdiva.com
I love top down raglans, and once I am done my current sweater, I will be making many of Stephanie Japel's patterns from "Fitted Knits", I love her style!
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Petunia Tote from IK Spring 2007 on: March 22, 2007 04:20:39 PM

Finished it.  Well, I just stuck a piece of cardboard in the bottom, but I haven't lined it yet.  It looks a little bumpy in the pictures but thats because I stuffed some clothes in it to get a picture.
This was a fun knit and I am very pleased with the results.
Also posted in the KAL thread.
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Knit 1 Winter 2006/07 Cable Hat on: January 16, 2007 07:17:23 PM
I finished the cable hat from the new Knit 1 magazine.  It was an easy knit and I love the way it turned out.  I think it is my best looking FO yet.  

These pics aren't the best, the yarn is a deeper blue than is looks like.  But I was so excited I had to share!!!
Thanks for looking.
5  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Ideas for Exterior Christmas Decorations? on: November 22, 2006 02:30:39 PM
Come on guys, I need some help.
Decorating the inside of my house? no problem there.
The outside is another story.  I have multicoloured lights up and I have a wreath with white lights that I am going to decorate and I am going to wrap my two white pillars outside the front door with red ribbon to make them look like candy canes.
This is not enough!!!!  I have a window box that is about 6 inches wide and 6 feet long, that I want to decorate.  Any ideas for what can go in it?
And I want something that can sit on the ground by the front door (probably about a 2 foot square area).  I was going to get a mini tree but there aren't any plugs I could use for lights.
I need some crafty ideas, because when I go to the store to buy decorations, the plastic tackiness just doesn't say Christmas to me.
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Swell from Knitty on: October 28, 2006 11:12:30 AM
I finished Swell today.  http://knitty.com/ISSUEsummer06/PATTswell.html

My first time doing colourwork of any kind.  Not perfect, but I love it.
I used size 7 needles to get gauge, and I used a lighter brown colourway than in the pattern, but still Cascade 220. 
Sorry for the blurry pics, I am not much of a photographer.
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / My Scarf Collection (Img Heavy) on: October 22, 2006 11:36:37 AM
Here are a few of the scarves I have made since I learned to knit this year.
Branching Out from Knitty:

It's a little short, I just was using up some spare balls of an unknown kind of Alpaca.  It's also a little itchy.  But I just wanted to try my hand at lace.

Airy Scarf:

This is a pattern in Last Minute Knitted Gifts.  It is Habu Textiles, silk/mohair blend.

Noro Silk Garden:

This is the magic scarf pattern from Crazy Aunt Purl.  It is alternating squares of stockinette and reverse stockinette.

Blue Sky Alpaca Bulky:

Seed stitch on size 35 needles.  Very fun to knit, only took about 15 minutes, and it is so fun to wear.  Nice and bumpy.
8  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Long Boobholder and a SWS scarf on: October 21, 2006 11:50:18 PM
Here is the first sweater I have made and actually liked/not frogged.

It is based on Glampyre's boobholder pattern, but lengthened into a cardigan.

Also, here is a scarf I made out of Pattons SWS:

It is a pattern someone posted on knitting livejournal, just a basic dropstitch.  It curls a lot but I like the way it looks.  And it was only one skein so nice and cheap to make.
Thanks for looking!
9  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / A progression of socks (4 pics) on: October 19, 2006 08:10:37 PM
You know when I first started knitting this year, I wondered why on earth people wanted to knit socks.  I am now working on my third pair and still have no idea.  Its just so fun for some reason, or maybe satisfying is a better word?

Anyways these are my first socks:

Made with Knitpicks simple stripes.  I find the colourway a little garish, and the yarn a little scratchy, but I still love them.  They are a little loose, and the first one has a too tight cast on and second has a too loose cast on, but oh well.
Oh yes and I learned to knit socks from this website.  It is great, so helpful when you don't know anyone else who knits. http://www.cometosilver.com/socks/SockClass_Beginning.htm

My second pair:

I made these for my hubby.  Lorna's Lace Shepard Sock Camo.  I used the Sensational Knitted Socks book , Gater Rib pattern.  They also came out a little loose, I don't think the book explained negative ease, or if it did I skipped that part.

My sock in progress:

Making these for my Mom for Christmas, I went back to the tutorial for my first sock for these, and am doing a simple stockinette stitch because I love the way the yarn looks.  It is Trekking XXL.

Anyways those are my socks, I am happy to report that that last one is off the needles, and fits like a glove.  I think I am catching on here.
10  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Cable hat, and two baby items on: October 19, 2006 07:44:39 PM
Here are a few of my FO's from this year.  I just learned to knit in January and have been obssessed ever since.

My first project on circulars:

The umbillical cord hat from Stitch n Bitch in the recommended Patons Canadiana.  I am waiting for someone I know to have a baby so I can give it away.

My first cable project:

Free pattern from this website. http://stitchcafe.com/freepatterns.html
Made in Knitpicks Sierra.

Baby booties:

I got the pattern here on Craftster, but I don't have the link.  They still need buttons, but again I have no baby to give them to, so I'm in no rush!

Thanks for looking.
