The funny thing is, i just finished my first one of these. Smiley

Did you make them as socks?  I so much wanted socks. I used a German sock wool, and I'm thinking it may not have been suited to the pattern.

Will you post pictures when you're finished? I want to see how they come out!

Ah! Entrelac jealousy. I think you did a fabulous job! It looks so adorable on you as a headband.

How lovely! Thank you for sharing the pattern. I've never worked with beads, but after seeing this scarf, I may just have to start.

I started knitting these socks on a train from London to Paris...  I was pretty jet-lagged, so I don't know if my gauge was off or my pattern reading skills stunk, but the ankle on these socks came out really fat!


I decided to salvage them into fingerless gloves. They have been gifted to my friend Jenny for use when she moves to Wales to be an au pair in a month.. I figured fingerless gloves are the perfect thing for a working woman.

Here's me wearing them around the house all day.... I didn't want to see them go!

knittinfiasco:  pre-blocking, so i took your suggestion and laid it out this morning...  but it's still pretty tentacle-y after ironing.

beccakbecca:  do you have pics? I'd love to see it!  #1 because I want to see the stitch, and #2 because I just started knitting baby blankets for Project Linus and could use some inspiration.

atroxsilentium:  I love the pattern you posted too! Now I'm really going to have to figure this whole thing out.

Thank you ladies. I love how helpful craftster is!

I found the "Sex and the Knitty" issue on knitty.com to have a lot of helpful techniques for fitting things to all sorts of bust sizes... It seems like they could be applicable to modify a cardigan as well.


I think the darts idea that Riki posted would work wonderfully also.

infantkittensyringe: do you have pictures of the Nantucket Jacket? I'd love to see it! I just subscribed to Interweave and I lust after all the patterns.

This post is partly to share a pattern I think is beautiful and partly to ask if anyone's ever tackled anything with daisy stitch before.


Any pointers? My "daises" look more like lopsided tentacles on the swatch I tried and now I'm afraid of how the warmers might turn out. Huh I'm an experienced knitter and there's even a tutorial! Am I a hopeless mess or is there a trick to this I've missed?

I love your scarf! I am so scared of entrelac... when I pick up stitches on a sock or a sweater or what have you, the picked up ones never look right. I'm so appreciative of the tutorial.

Thank you for sharing this! May I ask what kind of yarn you used?
10  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: First post: Banana Silk Purse on: January 14, 2008 05:55:58 PM
I live really near to London between term times and I've never seen anything like banana silk before! I intend to do some serious stash expansion when I get down south next (and spitalfields is on the met line, as is my home town, so I could get there really easily) so any tips on finding this in the market?

The rest of it is going to find new life as a belt, I think. I just need to find a good belt buckle - any tips from any of you gals on a good website? The LYS definitely would have nothing like that...

Jodiebarby: I would have no idea where to find the stall in Spitalfields as I bought it there last January... but it was one of the outdoor ones really close to the outer edge of the whole thing at the time and it was run by two fabulous older ladies who hand spun it all by hand. They had a lot of really unique fibers besides banana.

Crocodisle - it wasn't terribly expensive... I bought one skein that cost 12 pounds sterling. That's over double in US $ terms though. Silly exchange rate. My friend told me to pretend everything was US $ or else I'd feel too guilty to buy much. I'm quite happy with the purchase.
