21  my "what the hell do i do with this yarn" shrug in Knitting: Completed Projects by rhythmgrl on: June 25, 2005 08:04:12 AM
My mom's friend bought me several balls of yarn as a graduation gift in May, very sweet gesture.  They're yarns that she likes (and her being 55 and me being 26, well, we have different tastes...) I'm not one to look a gift horse in the mouth... and she wanted pictures of whatever I made, so I figured exchanging the yarn would've been rude.

I was sitting in Bryant Park last sunday looking at this yarn... what do you want to be?  what do you want to be?  Apparently, it wanted to be a shrug.  So this is what I came up with.  It's Artful Yarns Broadway in a rainbowish colorway with black ribbing around the sleeves, neck and back.

I'm fairly pleased with it - don't know how much use I'll get out of it, but it was nice to just knit something without a pattern for a change.  Smiley

After working a deleriously boring 2-day temp job and 2 4-hour bus rides, I've finished my second lace-weight clapotis.  Sadly, not for me; however, it is headed, as I type, to my best friend (who I haven't seen in a little over 2 years... crazy!)  I hope she likes it!!

yay, i'm glad i'm not crazy for thinking the fabric is rad.  i don't gush over fabric like this all that much.  i love fabric in general, don't get me wrong... but this stuff is different Cheesy

gosh , i love that fabric!! so pretty! is it stiff? i made a skirt like that kinda but stiff fabric and it looked horrid because it kinda puffout too much, well your rocks! Cheesy Grin

i hear that, it is a little stiff - i just finished the skirt by trimming it in ribbon, which alters the way the skirt lays.  it's a little different, but i'm still pleased beyond belief.  i told a friend that the skirt was like my lover because it gave me immense pleasure, he thought i was nuts when i said that.

finished skirt -

I've been in love with this fabric for three months and finally gave in and bought it from my fabric guy.  It's white satin with allover black embroidery.  I LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE it!

I haven't quite finished the skirt, I need to hem it and add an inside waistband so it doesn't stretch, but I couldn't wait to post Cheesy

25  yay spring! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by rhythmgrl on: May 11, 2005 03:49:36 PM
My family chipped in and bought me a cruise for a graduation present - good thing because grad school tapped me out.  Instead of buying new clothes for the trip, I figure I should use up some of the tons of fabric that I've managed to acquire these past couple of years.   Cheesy


and, well, the tie wasn't for me, it was a present for my internship supervisor.  He was a fantastic example and guide, and so appreciative (which made me happy!)  When I bought the silk for it, I wasn't terribly crazy about it, but it's hard to find non-girly raw silk for some reason.  After I finished the thing, I wanted to keep it and make it into a belt for me!  Thankfully I have more!

I'm not sure about the length of the dress, should I leave it or shorten it?  Decisions, decisions!

26  Angelina Vintage Jacket - FINALLY! in Knitting: Completed Projects by rhythmgrl on: April 26, 2005 04:27:16 PM
Good God!  This sweater took so freakin long for me to knit!  The 2x2 rib over and over and over and over is pretty uninspiring.  But, on the upside, the lace pattern is cool and fun to knit.  So, I guess it's a balance.  Overall, I think the construction of the sweater is interesting, but I'm not sure if I like the way it fits yet.  Maybe it'll grow on me  Cheesy

27  birthday skirts in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by rhythmgrl on: April 24, 2005 12:14:01 PM
So yesterday was my brother's fiance's birthday...  I pretty much have always made  her something for holidays or birthdays and what not... Tomorrow I'm dropping these off for her. 


The first skirt is a stretch cotton twill, with a satin ribbon border and should hit right at the knee.  The second is that material that piano shawls are made out of, so she can wear it over jeans or with a solid slip underneath.  It hits right below the knee (it's more a-line).  It doesn't photograph well, but such is life.  They're both my own patterns.  Yay math!

29  Knit bag for charity auction! in Knitting: Completed Projects by rhythmgrl on: April 10, 2005 04:34:27 PM
My friend Holly solicited me to donate one of my purses for a fundraiser for her daughter's school.  I donated one of the ones I would normally sell, but also decided to knit a bag.  This is what I came up with.  I hope it sells well!!   Cheesy

I didn't have a chance to put a pocket inside, oh well!  Oh, I just doubled some Jiffy Yarn that was donated to me... I figure it's a good way to pay it forward... and knit on size 13 needles.  It took less than 3 hours to knit.  I interfaced the knit bag and then machine stitched the lining (stretch poplin) to the yarn and seamed up the sides.  Super fast and easy!

Okay, I'm proud of this... I'd been working on it off and on for weeks as a mother's day gift.  Originally it was a just because gift for my mom, but hell, mother's day is next month and it works out well!

This is me modeling...

Close ups

Of course, I haven't blocked it, and the colors would probably show up better if I weren't wearing an orange tank top that doesn't match much. 

Anyhoo, I'm happy with how it turned out in a lace weight yarn  Cheesy
