101  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: One hour hat! on: January 17, 2005 09:54:57 PM
I'm a fan of this pattern too.  I made a couple for myself and a couple for Christmas gifts.  I was lucky that I had the decreases memorized because she pulled the pattern off her website when I was halfway through with one.  My friend told me yesterday that everyone asks her where she got the hat and scarf I made for her.  That made me feel great!

I had the Licorice yarn in my hands at Joann's last week but didn't buy it.  It's perfect for this hat!

Here's one of my hats, the first one I did.  I did it from a couple of things I had on hand, Lion Wool Ease in white that has some sparkles in it and Plymouth Encore in blue. It's my favorite college team's colors so I thought it would be good for wearing to basketball games in the winter and tailgating at football games in late fall.  I found that if I used size 17 needles, it came out huge so I use 15, and it works out better for me.

102  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / My First Sweater! on: January 17, 2005 09:47:32 PM
I learned to knit about a year ago and have made the usual scarves and hats plus mittens and bags but finally got the nerve to do a sweater. I started it in November but set it aside to work on Christmas gifts. I finally finished it last week but didn't get the buttons sewn on until last night.  It's the Craving to Knit sweater from the Yarn Girls' Guide to Simple Knits.  It really wasn't difficult at all, and I'm no longer horrified of seaming!

103  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Re: Completed Spiderweb Capelet on: January 17, 2005 11:38:09 AM
Beautiful!  SouleMama, I've been looking at that eBay seller's site for yarn for a sweater, and after seeing it, I'm definitely going to buy from them. That's really pretty.

I finally finished the sweater I was working on and intended to start a Booga Bag I promised my Mom's friend but the mohair was calling me so I started on another capelet.  I hope to finish it tonight and will post more pictures soon!

Thanks for all the compliments on my capelet. I really love it.  I want to do another one but really need to finish up a couple of other projects first!

Crumpet, those colors are gorgeous!

Jane,

I don't have any better ideas on Cotton Chenille but most of the ones I made were from other yarns. My LYS doesn't carry Cotton Chenille either but I did get some when I was in another city.  I used Bernat Cotton Tots and Plymouth Fantasy Naturale.  I fell in love with a colorway in Fantasy Naturale and wasn't sure if it would be okay in a washcloth since it's a mercerized cotton (and I'm not even sure what exactly that is!  Smiley ) but a lady at my LYS said she had used it for some washcloths for her daughter because she wanted to match up a color, and she said it had held up well.  The Bernat Cotton Tots is really soft and feels great but the color selection isn't great, outside of baby shades.

The Cotton Chenille is great if you can get your hands on it though! I love how it looks and feels.

It looks great!  I love that color.

It's funny, I just finished this cardigan as my first sweater as well.  It's done blocking but I still need to get some buttons for it.  I'll do that today!  I'm so excited that it fits well.  I too was a sweater-phobe but knitting it was as easy as doing a scarf because it's all stockinette.  I got through the seaming, and the rest was a piece of cake.

I'm going to next do the hooded sweatshirt from the Yarn Girls' book but want another cardigan too!  I got the yarn for the hoodie a couple of weeks ago.

Very cute! I made several of these to go along with Christmas gifts, and everyone seemed to really like them. Now I have  2 balls of Cotton Chenille to make some for myself but am so sick of doing them at this point!  Smiley

Reading this thread has made me come out of lurking to show off my own little piece of work.  I love everyone's, especially the one in Manos.  That's beautiful!

I'm pretty short so mine is a little on the big side.  I also used size 17 needles instead of the 15 in the pattern.  My 15's are short, and I didn't think I could cram all those stitches on and didn't feel like going out to get longer needles.  My gauge wasn't too far off.  I love how it looks on!  I used Merino Frappe and got it done with 1 skein with a little leftover. I already have some pale lilac mohair to make another!
