Finally finished my hourglass sweater! My sweater virginity is gone.

I used double-stranded Elann baby cashmere, and it was a great yarn sub. Also a lot cheaper than the Cash Iroha.

JUST a warning that this was posted on You Knit What?

I'm not saying you shouldn't make it if you like it, but I thought you should know.

23  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / coffee table out of picture frames! on: January 15, 2006 02:28:54 PM
I'm so happy with my new coffee tables! When I was trying to figure out what I could use to build one, I searched on craftster and found a link to an external site with a tutorial on how to make a coffee table out of picture frames but the link was dead. I still thought it sounded like a good idea so I tried it sans guidance.

I used wooden picture frames and plant stands from Ikea. I put a step-by-step tute on my blog if anyone's interested: http://buonasara.blogspot.com/2006/01/adventures-in-interior-decorating.html

Thanks for looking!

I think it's very cool! Did you use a pattern?

Yay I'm knitting this right now too! It's my first ever sweater and I'm really nervous about whether it is going to fit -- I have this huge fear of putting in a million hours of work and then the size is all wrong. I did a gauge swatch and everything, and it seems I have the right gauge, but that doesn't ease my mind. What size did y'all make? Are you happy with the fit?

Wow that is all so beautiful. You've inspired me to plan for next Christmas so people get lovely coordinated gifts. I hope I'm still inspired next fall!

Thanks guys!

Yeh, Tejer, i thought it would be harder than it is. Course I"m a pessimist. I did have a false start - I got about 4 rows in and had to frog it, but that's typical for me.

I'm also pretty inpatient, but the way this pattern works-- starting with the long border side and decreasing -- works better for me psychologically. In the beginning I'm excited about the project, so I can handle the pace of ONE row per hour (no shit), and then as I start to get bored the rows are also decreasing and my RPH is accelerating.
29  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Ene's Scarf on: December 13, 2005 07:34:50 AM


After a few weeks of knitting I finally finished my first lace shawl! The pattern is "Ene's Scarf" from Scarf Style using Knitpicks Shimmer. It was about a skein and a half, so a total of about $7.50 for the yarn! (I love cheap-o knitpicks.) I thought it was a pretty good pattern -- not too complicated but definitely a challenge.

The only thing I wish I'd done differently is used a smaller needle -- this is pretty airy and cobwebby. The other pictures I've found by googling Ene's Scarf look more...I don't know, substantial? Could be the yarn too.

Thanks for looking.

Thanks for the comments, y'all. SparroWinter, I just made it up on the fly, but here's the "pattern"-- Just cast on 2 stitches and make a triangle like this:

1: K
3: K
4: K1, KFB, KFB, K1
5: K
6: K1, KFB, K2, KFB, K1

Keep doing that until it's big enough to cover your nose. Then attach yarn to both bottom corners and the top point, so you can tie behind your head. That's all, very simple and easy to do without anyone noticing what you're doing. Smiley

I should add that, when tested, alas, it didn't actually work.
