1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / 3 FO's from Scarf Style on: February 04, 2006 11:14:26 AM
I'm usually not a fan of knitting scarves but I bought the book Scarf Style after seeing that I wanted to make several of them!  I have made 3 already, 2 for Christmas gifts and one for myself.

The first is Ruffles. It took less than 4 balls of Cashmerino and is really long, about 92".  I'm only 4'11!  I did it in my team's colors (Kentucky) for wearing to games and rushed through it so it would be done in time for the last football game at the end of November.  It kind of blends in with my shirt here but I love this picture because of my sweetie little dog.


I did another Ruffles as a gift for my best friend.  It was supposed to be a Christmas gift but I didn't finish it until recently.  I'm horrible  Wink  I used 3 skeins of Berroco Softtwist.  It's shorter than the other, about 66" long, but this second one seemed to take forver to knit, after having done one already, so I didn't start another ball.  

For a work Secret Santa, I drew the name of someone who makes jewelry so I knew she'd appreciate something handmade.  Backyard Leaves was the scarf I really fell in love with in the book, and she'd be a perfect recipient.  I used 3 balls of Plymouth Suri Merino which is super soft and nice to work with.  It's about 70" long.  I am crazy about this pattern!  This is only the first half of it but it shows off the pattern better than some of the other pics I took. I did weave in ends. Smiley

2  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Finished Lucky from SNBN! on: May 25, 2005 06:41:15 AM
I posted this in the Knit-Along section but I thought I'd post it here too. I'm pretty pleased with it.  I didn't make many changes to the pattern, other than doing normal sleeves instead of bell sleeves and I made the sleeves 3/4 length.  I made the 32" chest size and didn't add all the increases above the waist because I didn't want that much ease.  It's a little big in the shoulders, even though I seamed the neckband on to cinch it in some.  I was in my LYS yesterday, and she told me that I could cinch it even more if I wanted. I will deal with the wider neck because I have no desire to do that seaming again! Smiley

I used Brown Sheep Cotton Fine in Prairie Lupine, 5 skeins with a little  of a 6th.

3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Koigu Scarf? on: January 27, 2005 08:54:06 AM
Has anyone made a scarf of Koigu?  I have 1 full skein and parts of another (maybe 1/2 skein) left over from a hat and would like to make a scarf. The one I like most so far is the Rockstar Scarf from Knitty but the idea of a scarf on size 3 needles doesn't appeal to me at all.  Does anyone have any ideas for a pattern I could use with Koigu?  I've tried searching online but haven't come up with anything great.

Thanks in advance!
4  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!
