1  Finished Green Gable! Woot woot! in Knitting: Completed Projects by thadley on: December 30, 2007 03:45:27 PM
I finished it! Hurray! It's my second 'garment' knit piece, I am glad it turned out and that it fits so well.
I knit it with 100% Mercerized cotton (Saucy by Reynolds). I think I will try it again with some wool!

Hurry, I love it! And you were right, the hole is closed up and I'm happy as a clam!   Tongue
Overall, I am happy with it and am wearing it right now... and I plan on knitting another design from Zephyr next... probably the Juliet cardigan for my friend. I'm so happy that it fits me perfectly... I chose to knit an extra inch or so on the total length before adding the ribbing, and I'm glad I did, it would have been a little too short.

A few things I'd change if I made it again (and I plan on it!):
  • I'd probably use a different yarn. I do like the mercerized cotton as it's pretty and not too hot to wear, but it seems bulkier and the stitches don't look as nice as I would like.
  • I was a little lazy and chose not to figure out the k1 p1 bind off! (ha!) I just bound off in pattern... I think the pattern actually called for the k1 p1 bind off AKA kitchener bind off, which I don't know how to do yet.

Here's mine, I'm about 6 rows from being done with Part C (before you separate the sleeves).

My only gripe is that there is definitely a seam that I can't seem to get rid of where I've joined... even this many rows up!! I don't know why this is happening (I pull extra tight when I cross over for each new round). Any advice?

4  Half-A-Cardi and a few other projects: completed! in Knitting: Completed Projects by thadley on: December 06, 2007 08:07:51 PM

I finished my half-a-cardi project in record time... this was my first knit garment and first time trying out seamless knitting. I think it turned out pretty good, two things I would improve would be to make the cardigan a little longer and to figure out some kind of decreasing or ribbing to snug up the bottom to my back (kinda sticks out).

My other pic is a baby cardigan and hat set I made for my friend's baby shower. I knit this in pieces and then sewed it all together... the hat was made on a knifty knitter loom.

On to the next project!
