Hello everyone,
I sewed this about 5 months ago and it only just turned warm enough for my 2 year old girl to wear it. Smiley

4  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / My First Dress!!!! on: November 24, 2007 12:41:43 AM
This is my first time sewing a dress for my daughter.

Pardon my daughter's sleepy look - she was really sleepy and cranky then.

Close up on the button:

It's a very simple dress but it took me alot of courage and planning to make as I was afraid of wasting cloth and afraid of failing. Thank God it came out not-too-bad.
This is also the first time I'm using a sewing machine in donkey years. (The last time was 3 or 4 years ago when I DID NOT complete the project and also when I was 13 when I had to finish the assignments for Home Economics class).

Comments and criticism most welcome! Cheesy
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / My first ever baby cardigan on: November 22, 2007 11:12:16 PM
This is my very first attempt at knitting something that is not a hat or bootie or blanket. It's also my first attempt with using so many colors.
I made many mistakes. So many that I wanna slap myself.

Firstly, the changing of colors are so messy. The garment puckered on 1 side because I carried the yarn up the side too tightly.

Secondly, I was too lazy to do a gauge swatch. So it turned out WAY TOO SMALL for my baby. A premie baby could wear this I suppose.

Thirdly, the patterned called for an increase of the sleeves once every 4 rows. I did it once every 3 rows because I thought you had to include the 1st row in the increase. -___-

Everything is in a mess (you won't be able to tell from the picture but there are holes where I don't want them to be and the WS of the garment has ends sticking out because I didn't weave them in properly.
I also got bored with the garter stitch so I will never attempt another project that calls for only garter stitching. Not motivated enough!

And my daughter wearing it BEFORE I sewed on the buttons.

I will do better next time.  Cheesy

7  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / What do you do with your swatches? on: November 05, 2007 08:24:25 PM
Hi everyone, I'm new here  Grin
Just picked up knitting about 6-7 weeks ago, inspired by my newborn daughter.

Was wondering if you gals usually rip out swatches after measuring the gauge and use the yarn for the intended project?
I just bought some very expensive merino wool yarn and it seems to be a waste to knit a swatch and leave it as it is.

Also, will the yarn be 'damaged' if I rip out the swatch?
