11  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Lion Brand Landscapes on: March 06, 2005 02:24:16 PM
I just bought six balls of Landscapes and not sure what I want to do with it. I was thinking a shrug, and have looked at several patterns for a shrug but most are done in worsted weight, which I don't think Landscapes is.... So any ideas?

12  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Yarn Subs for Knitty's Clapotis on: January 22, 2005 09:10:45 AM
I have been searching allover for a reasonably priced sub. The pattern calls for Lornas Laces, Lion and Lamb, it would be $100 to make thise!  Shocked

So I found one girl who knitted it double stranded with a lace weight yarn, and it looks pretty good.  She did have to make it a little smaller since it was lace weight, instead of worsted.

Then someone suggested to me I use Shimmer (from knitpicks), which is a lace weight and to knit it triple strand, to get the "worsted" effect.

If you look at the pattern it consists of dropping stitches, and I am a little concerned about how that would work/look with three strand of yarn.  What do you guys think?

For the record...Noro Silk Garden, Koigu, Artyarns, and a couple others were suggested to me.  But you have to buy more to get the yardage, and it ends up costing just as much as the Lornas Laces.

I even considered splurging on the Lornas LAces, but I can't find it in stock online anywhere  Angry

This is just bugging me. hehe

13  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / My SnB Projects (Picture Heavy) on: January 02, 2005 04:41:45 PM
I have Finally uploaded my knitting pictures and thought I would share.

First the ice cream coozy, which isn't SnB, but I had to share. Currently it is enjoying the company of Haagen-Daas Coffee. Yum!

Here is the basic cable hat...I used Patons Classic merino, added an extra 6 rows, and the thing it still short. This is the part where someone says GAUGE Liz.  Wink  So my Daughter has inherited it and Loves it.

And my favorite project....Alien Illusion Scarf/ And the skull with Crossbones...

And last but not least, and just because I can share....Here is a picture of my baby Leo, taking advantage of the old car seat Waiting to go to the attic.

14  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Alien Illusions Scarf...SHould I block it? on: December 21, 2004 06:25:10 PM
I just finished making this scarf....My first project with anything other than acrylic. I used the Naturespun worsted, which was what the pattern called for. 

The sides of the scarf are rolling under, big time. Should I block it? And if so, how do I do that? I have never blocked anything so I am a bit clueless.   

Other than that I looove how it turned out. After I get this one in shape I am making a black and white one with Skull illusions. Can't wait to get started.
