Here's more of a closeup on 2 of my girls

Here are some where you can see more of mine

It was so cold!  Like 5C/43F and the photographer had Jeff and I out there for 2 hours worth of photos!  (Everyone else could go in for parts)  But it was a really great time.

I got married on October 28th.  Outdoors.  In Canada.  And I and all my bridesmaids were in strapless dresses.  Cruel, aren't I?  So, I knitted up an I do for each of them in Patons Classic Wool Pure Merino.  My mom made mine in Rowan Kidsilk Haze (with little pearl beads at the cuff - so pretty!).  It really turned out well.  Here's a picture of us all together:

(edited to make picture bigger- yay for photobucket!)

here's what I made from one large skein.  (It's kind of a bad picture, it was really gorgeous in real life).  It was pretty small for a shawl, more large scarf size.

I think the important thing with this yarn is to keep the pattern really simple to let the yarn show itself off.  it is rough (little frayed bits stick out every which way) so you're not going to get a polished effect.  Stockinette, I think, looks better than garter stitch, because it give a relatively smooth surface.  I've seen a lovely stockinette scarf which was just allowed to roll itself into a tube.  It was really pretty.

But yeah, I agree, in most cases I've thought that the yarn looks better in the ball than worked up!  I certainly hate all the projects on the mango moon website.  I guess it's the yarn world's version of that really cute dress that looks like a grocery sack when you try it on, but is beautiful on the hanger!

5  Featured Knitting Projects - Food! (NEW Nov 26, 2005) in Knitting: Completed Projects by melidomi on: July 22, 2005 12:10:16 PM
Sorry about the massive slacking I've been doing on keeping up with featured projects(Here's my excuse

But now, the moment you've all been waiting for (drumroll, please) KNITTED FOOD! (Thanks to ax174 for the suggestion!)

It seems we craftster-type knitters have quite the appetite!  It all started out with the chicken viking hat

then came sushi

and dim sum

but lately, it seems everyone wants dessert! Whether you like cake

or pie

or cookies

Or even a "healthy breakfast" of donuts

or cinnamon rolls

craftster's knitters have got you covered!

And of course, you need a knitted digestive system to enjoy it all to the fullest!

 If you see a completed project (or knitalong) that you think is extra super cool, please PM me with a link.  (If you see your project featured and you'd rather it wasn't, also PM me and I'll take it off).

Looking for old featured projects? They're in the Archived Featured Knitting Projects thread.

6  Featured Knitting Projects - TOYS! (new June 24) in Knitting: Completed Projects by melidomi on: June 24, 2005 11:46:08 AM
What do you knit when it's too hot to even think about sweaters, hats, and scarves?  How about toys and dolls?





There's a whole thread dedicated to projects from the book "World of Knitted Toys" : https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=26584.0

And then there are the dolls:




 If you see a completed project (or knitalong) that you think is extra super cool, please PM me with a link.  Upcoming themes will be lace and cables.  (If you see your project featured and you'd rather it wasn't, also PM me and I'll take it off).

Well, I'm just a big copycat.  Here's my version - a mother's day present, modeled by mom -

I used the same yarn as Tere, but in 'natural' I dyed the sweater after it was all made with Kool-Aid.  I was trying for a true blue, dip-dyed effect and ended up with a turquoise, slightly uneven effect.  But my mom likes it, 'cause she's my mom!

I also changed all the ribbing to seed stitch and only cast on the number of stitches you're supposed to have *after* changing to stockinette, because seed stitch has a gauge more similar to stockinette than to ribbing.

9  2-tone coronet in Knitting: Completed Projects by melidomi on: March 11, 2005 07:10:50 AM
What do you do when you don't have enough of any one yarn to make a hat, but you do have 2 coordinating colors?  Why, you make a 2 tone hat.  This is Knitty's coronet.  The cable, and about 1.5" of the hat (that's hidden by the cable) are done in Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran in color 202 (left over from Tempting) and the rest of the hat is in Cascade Lana D'Oro in Stonehenge left over from another sweater.

10  mango moon recycled silk shawl (with pattern) in Knitting: Completed Projects by melidomi on: March 11, 2005 07:05:23 AM
Ok, this is one of those, 'why does my camera hate me?' pictures - the colors are really bright and jewely in person

Mango Moon Silk Shawl


Mango Moon recycled sari silk (1 hank)
US 17 needles (circular would be nice, but you can cram it all onto 12" needles)
Cast on 3. 
Row 1 (RS): K1, yo, k to last st, yo, k1
Row 2 (WS): purl.
Repeat these two rows until you have about 8 yards of yarn left, ending with RS facing for next row.
Next row: K1, *yo, k2tog.  Repeat from * to end of row (depending on number of sts, you may have only 1 st after last yo, in which case, just knit it.)
Bind off in purl.
