1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / iridescent beaded garter lace choker 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  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Vogue high neck lace top 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.

3  CANADA / British Columbia / nice glass bottles? on: November 27, 2006 12:04:15 PM
i am planning to make some infused vodka for christmas and i also want to etch some glass bottles to put the booze in. i was wondering if y'all knew of anywhere in town that sells nice, medium sized (like icewine sized) bottles that have some sort of a top/cork.
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Calista's McQueen knockoff 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!
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / shawl collared sweater patterns on: August 25, 2006 12:44:24 AM
i've been seeing tons of shawl collar sweaters in stores and really want to make one but can't find a pattern for the more modern takes that seem to be out there. the one in rebecca 29 is close but opens up a but too wide for my cleavage baring comfort level, i like this one but don't really want the cables. has anyone found any form fitting cableless ones that i haven't?

6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / replace a zipper? on: June 21, 2006 12:06:35 PM

i'm not much of a sewer, but i have this awesome strapless dress i bought last year. problem is, it fits perfectly until i bend over, and then the zipper splits. i'm wondering if it's just cause it's an old "hidden" zipper, and if so, are there stronger zippers that aren't ugly and massive? and if not, are there way to reinforce a zipper?

any answers would be very awesome.

7  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / my first socks (R.I.P.) 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.
8  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / glampyre raglan advice on: February 11, 2006 05:18:46 PM
i want to make a bottom up raglan from glampyre http://glampyreknits.tripod.com/glampyrephotos/id34.html, but i also want it to have the YO effect on the raglan like she did in this version http://glampyreknits.tripod.com/glampyrephotos/id12.html. would it be a matter of doing the yo while picking up the stitches from the sleeves? would it be smarter for me to adjust the top down raglan to my yarn and do that instead?
9  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / making my first socks on: January 12, 2006 09:03:51 PM
and i'm confused- following the pattern at http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEsummer03/PATTbroadripple.html, i've done the leg, but now i'm about top start the heel. it says to divide the stitches onto 2 needles (from 4) and make the heel- but do i only work off one needle and leave the other one? or do i knit both seperatley? or do i knit them together? my brain hurts.

thanks for any help!
10  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / ladder yarn tank top 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).
