1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / finished my Phildar vest, just in time for fall on: October 06, 2007 04:58:33 PM
I am so so happy with this vest! It took a long time to knit, but it was totally worth it.
This was my first Phildar pattern, and it was so clear and well written.

The pattern is from Phildar #468 from Spring 2007. I used 3 skeins of Catalina baby alpaca. No modifications. I really like the drapey, oversized fit of it.

Thanks for looking!
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Vogue Ribbed Minidress on: June 11, 2007 10:34:20 PM

This pattern is the Ribbed Minidress by Mari Lynn Patrick from the Vogue Spring/Summer 2007 issue. I used 6 skeins of Koigu KPM for the small size. I modified to make it shorter, but I guess I went too far. This is more of a tunic/shirt than a dress now. I loved working with the Koigu KPM and am pretty happy with how it turned out, although I might pick up the hem stitches to make it a bit longer.

Thanks for looking!
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Sunny Delight on: May 05, 2007 04:50:12 PM

The design for this dress had been bouncing around my head for weeks, but this challenge gave me the incentive to finally knit her up! I crocheted the bobbled neckband, picked up some of those stitches, and then knit the rest of the dress in the round from the top down.

I used Cascade "Sierra" which is an 80 cotton, 20 wool blend. Once the dress got long, the weight of the cotton yarn made the armholes droop down to a pretty obscene degree, so I added crochet around the armholes to correct this. This addition wasn't my original intention, but I think it looks nice.

Thanks for looking!
4  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Twinkle's Big City Knits Book Knitalong on: February 22, 2007 07:58:26 PM
Anyone want to knit some Twinkle patterns with me?

If you have peeked inside this book, you may have noticed that the gauges and sizes are totally wacky! I really want to knit these, but a knitting a sweater with a 22" bust measurement may require the support of my fellow craftsters. Any takers?
5  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Basic Cable from SnB Nation on: January 14, 2007 07:47:36 PM

This was a stashbuster! I used my one precious skein of Lang Silkdream. I love it. I wore it all day and felt like a snow bunny. The hat only took about 3 hours, but the damn pom pom took about 4. Is there an easy way to make pom poms that I don't know about?
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / How do I block my giant afghan in my small apartment? on: January 13, 2007 06:17:07 PM
I'm almost done with the saffron cables afghan from interweave fall 06 and I'm starting to wonder, how the heck am I going to block it? It certainly needs to be blocked to smooth out the cables. I don't have an extra bed to pin it onto, or a rug large enough. I guess I could lay it on top of several towels? Has anyone ever done this before?
7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Simplicity 6407- dolman sleeve dress with pockets! on: September 30, 2006 10:47:47 AM
Hi there! I don't come over to this side of Craftster very often, but knitting has wreaked havoc on my hands and wrists, so I did some sewing instead.

This dress/shirt is so comfortable. I want to wear it everyday, and I kinda did this week, until I stained it. Any tips for getting grease stains out of mystery synthetics?

Thanks for looking!
8  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / one-shoulder tunic from loop-d-loop on: September 10, 2005 06:40:33 PM
This is my very first knitting project that is not a scarf or hat. The pattern is from loop-d-loop by teva durham. I bought the yarn intending to use it for the steek vest, but after doing several gauge swatches, realized that it didn't look quite right. However it was perfect for this project! So here I am proudly modeling my first finished garment!

9  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / fantastic earring display on: September 06, 2004 01:27:27 PM
Hi everybody!  I just discovered craftster this week and am very excited to post this.  I wish I had discovered this sooner!  I hope my image link works- here goes nuthin

So- I make stud earrings from vintage buttons.  Pens & Needles (a great store in sf http://www.needles-pens.com/)  recently asked me to provide a vertical display.  I started with a simple cardboard traingle, stapled together.  Then my boyfriend had a great idea- why not draw a landscape for the earrings to live in?  here is the result


To do it- I scanned in the cardboard texture, drew a scene over it on the computer, printed it, trimmed it, pasted it onto the real cardboard, then put my earrings through it!  totally easy!
