1  iridescent beaded garter lace choker in Knitting: Completed Projects by scapina on: January 29, 2007 11:58:12 PM
here it is! i knitted this in phildar sunset on sz 1 needles, and on the YO, K2tog i slid in a bead every YO. some on them sit nicely and some don't but i think i can coax them a bit more when i have time. this is only one repeat of the pattern, i thought it would look nicer with the horizontal stripe. i left the strands long at the clasp because my neck is fairly thin and i'm actually going to give it to a friend who i think will need more length.

this was fun, looking forward to doing more!

2  Vogue high neck lace top in Knitting: Completed Projects by scapina on: December 21, 2006 10:49:15 AM
i saw this in the holiday 2005 vogue and i had to make it. started it mid nov, finished it yesterday (just in time for the last holiday party!).

i omitted the bobbles cause i didn't like them. the buttons are so nice, i found these antique black glass buttons with a siver border, they are perfect. i made this out of rosarios bio bamboo- OMG it's the softest thing ever. it was my first time at lace, once i got it down it went swimmingly Wink. it's not as fitted in the waist as i would prefer, but it's manageable.

sorry about the garish colour in the one with flash but i wanted the lace to be visible.

4  Calista's McQueen knockoff in Knitting: Completed Projects by scapina on: November 16, 2006 12:43:49 PM
Wooo I finished! I may or not make the flowers, I'm not too flowery. Smiley The colour on the top is probably the most accurate, but what I love about this yarn is that it's kind of iridescent and changes depeneding on the light. It's this in the forest green if you want to know. I originally bought it to make something else with but that was a failure, and it is perfect for this sweater. I love it, going to wear it to my birthday party on Saturday. Smiley

now onto to finishing up the lace tank from last year's holiday vogue. busy busy!

It's actually ok, I live in Vancouver and our winters can barely be called that, so I should be able to wear this sweater pretty much through until next spring. Smiley

I'm back so almost done..... hopefully tomorrow!!

i was planning to do the cabled riding jacket but got kind of messed up when my lys recommended a dk yarn instead of a worsted and i couldn't return it cause i lost the receipt... but anyways.... love what i see (thinking steek vest might be a necessity for summertime)- here is the only thing i've finished from the book so far- my corkscrew scarf.

8  my first socks (R.I.P.) in Knitting: Completed Projects by scapina on: April 04, 2006 10:19:19 PM
here are the very first socks i have ever made. they are very warm and ridiculously comfy. they are the broadripple pattern at knitty. they are made of moda dea sassy stripes cause it was on sale for $1.99 a skein. cheeeeep!

now for the sad part. they are MIA. i lost a backpack full of clothes on route from edinburgh to london and they were in it (so were the pants in the photos). so, so, sad. i miss them. i have bought more yarn (in another colour just in case) to make another pair, but it just won't be the same. sigh.

9  ladder yarn tank top in Knitting: Completed Projects by scapina on: August 30, 2005 01:18:05 PM
i've been working on this tank top that started out as a pattern on the bernat website but i decided i didn't like the neckline and when i finished it was WAY too short so i made it a v-neck using the honeymoon pattern on knitty and added 3 inches of ribbing to the bottom. i then had to sew the ribbing on, that took far to long for my liking.  but i'm pretty happy with the way it finally turned out, plus i am AMAZED that i actually got it done while the weather is still nice (early sept is amazingly sunny here).

10  knitting headphones cord = ipod holder in CHALLENGE 5 ENTRIES by scapina on: August 22, 2005 11:04:54 PM
I should have taken WIP pics, but I couldn't find my camera until after I had finished. But I basically took my headphones and knit the long cord into a rectangle for my shuffle. I had to add an extension to make it long enough- you can sort of see that along the side. Then I sewed up the sides with speaker wire- and viola! All in one!

I was inspired by an art project I once where someone had knit clothing from speaker wire. I wanted something that would be a bit more functional for my walk to work every morning- so this is what I came up with. I would like to buy more extension cord and make an actual bag eventually I think.

whole thing

Edit- I added more pics and tried to get my cat to pose- but he didn't want to co-operate at all. Wink
