1  Hoodie from Stitch&Bitch Book in Knitting: Completed Projects by nemka on: April 29, 2007 07:36:23 PM
I finally figured out how to seam my sleeves so they looked smooth and nice, and here's the final result:



I had a few pictures of it on, but since it's not for me--that is, not fitted for me--it didn't look quite right.  So this shot of it on the hanger works just about as well, methinks.  Yay, hoodie!

It's done in Caron's Simply Soft--all except the maroon stripe, which is a cashmere blend.  (The luxury stripe, indeed.)  I left out the pocket and I added six extra rows so to maximize the impact of the luxury stripe.

I completely agree!

Here's my linen stitch scarf:



It didn't look like much in the photo in my stitch dictionary, but oh, how it is delightful with variegated yarn!

3  Seaming looks... funny in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by nemka on: March 17, 2007 08:03:06 AM
Right now, the battery on my camera is charging, so I can't post a picture of this quite yet.

I do have a question, however: I'm seaming up a sweater, and it seam edge looks kind of funny, and I am wondering if I am doing something wrong.  The sleeve itself was worked from the wrist up, and required increases every 10th or so row.  I seamed it up using the mattress stitch, but at each increase, I have a weird slight gap at the seam.  It makes the finished product look rather sloppy, and so I'm wondering if there's anything I can do to alleviate that, and give it a more polished look.

Picture:

Thanks!

4  Resize a Vintage Cardigan? in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by nemka on: February 02, 2007 10:04:41 PM
Hello!

I have this vintage cardigan that is, sadly, far too boxy for me.  It's an acrylic knit.  Is it possible, do you think, to resize/shape this without completely destroying it?  Has anybody here accomplished such a feat?

Here's a picture for reference:

5  Help Me Identify This Yarn! in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by nemka on: November 21, 2006 05:38:05 PM
I have two mystery yarns, acquired long ago in a swap...
Can you help me figure out what kind they are?

I think this might be a Noro yarn...


No idea on this one!



Thanks!!

6  How to Gather? in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by nemka on: May 21, 2006 12:22:03 PM
A question, fearless sewers...

I am making a top, and I need to add in a panel to accommodate, well, my bust.  I've put together a little schematic of my pattern (very crude, but it gets the job done) and what I'm wondering is this -- where do the gathers go?  My first mock-up included gathers at point A and B, but I thought I'd get advice from the experts here.

Here's the diagram:


So, an informal poll...

Do I place the gathers at --
A
B
A and B
OR...
Gather more at A than B
Gather more at B than A

So many choices, I know, but I figured the mighty experts here may be able to provide me with some gathering guidance.

So I finally just hacked(ish) into my brother's digicam to retrieve these photos.  But, at long last... the mystery stitch revealed!

Here's a visual aid:



Of the variety on the right: I have blue, green and a tan strapping.

9  Sparkly Girly Scarf in Knitting: Completed Projects by nemka on: April 29, 2005 02:37:51 PM
Yes, this was a photo of the scarf while it was still unfinished, but I have completed it!

Materials: one skein (on discount for four dollars!) of glitterspun in gold, size nine needles.  Finished scarf: 3 1/2 inches wide, almost sixty inches long.


A picture!




Edit: I don't understand why when I try to include the link for the pattern I adapted it from, it comes out very weird and not a link at all.  It's p_faux_lace_scarf_lc.html on www DOT madisonknittersguild  DOT org
