1  Completed Spiderweb Capelet in Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller by renrig210 on: December 01, 2004 07:47:21 PM
After some of y'all talked about the capelet this morning, it piqued my interest so I knit it up in my downtime.  It was superquick and fun once I figured out to drop every YO I ever encountered (I have either read the instructions poorly or it only tells ya to drop certain rows of em, I'm not quite sure).

But here's a look.  I'm a notoriously bad photographer and didn't feel like actually getting out of my jammies today.

If anyone needs any help with this, ask away.  It went pretty smoothly though.

I threw this together kinda quickly (i'm away from the home comp so I can't post the original key, sorry).  I hope this helps.  Lemme know if anything else seems screwy.  I've read through the pattern now, and it otherwise seems correct.

This is the felted swatch for the bag.  IT has a nice nubby texture even though it's St st.

4  Interweave Knits Sweet and Lowdown in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by renrig210 on: July 29, 2004 02:48:58 PM
Okay, so I love the chair with all the burning fiery passion my little heart has.  I never follow patterns.  Never have, never really intended to, but I want to make this slipcover.

Problem is:  I can't get the chair.  I'm about 6+ hours away from an IKEA, so does anyone have suggestions for a similar (and similarly priced) chair?  It's the Oppala if you don't have the mag.  Or has anyone seen one for sale online?  Or have one they want to part with for a reasonable price/shipping?

THe chair w/knitted slipcover for those who have not yet seen it:

I envision it in a more exciting, childproof, yarn color.  Maybe even 2 color cables.  If I can find a reasonable source for similar chairs, I want to design a fair isle-esque thing for another one.

Lovely or not, my friend dug it.  I wish I hadn't had to give it away, because I dig it too.  This was on bamboo size 15s and took about 1.5 hours.  Later that day, my dog ate my needles.  sad, sad day.

6  Help! I have the polyester motherlode!! in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by renrig210 on: December 08, 2003 07:01:31 PM
My nana gave me about 30lbs (truly) of fabric "scraps" she had in her basement!  Ooh buddy!

What should I do with it all?  The jumper is going to be cut up and resewn into pants, as the waist is too small.   I don't know what to do with the top part though.

Among the mess below is a bag of aboug 1000 rectangles of assorted polyesters, and a bunch of more novelty fabrics (like cowboys and pink frogs, tee hee!)

There's my curious Keesh, Hunter.

Thanks for any and all suggestions!  No idea is too bizarre.

Here's the skully that I promised to post ages ago.  I was kickin' a pretty funk stomach virus last week, so don't look above the neckline, eh?

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!
