11  One Skein Stirling Cloche NOW WITH PATTERN, pg. 6! in Knitting: Completed Projects by skrillaknits on: January 17, 2006 09:07:35 PM
Hey all. Haven't posted a finished object in a long time, so I really wanted to show this. I can't share a pattern yet because I'm sending it off for consideration in a new book! I can tell you that the yarn is Valley Yarn Stirling Mohair Loop http://www.yarn.com/yarns/stirling.html and I love the finished look.

If the book doesn't want it, I will post a pattern here later. Cheers all!

I love it to pieces, and so does Dane Cook:


If I look manic it's because I love Dane Cook and was like, "Dane Cook is touching my knitting!!!" SO Marcia Brady.

I used the yarn called for and had to buy lots more than it said to. I was a new knitter, so it was fine by me. The thing is pretty large and in charge. It's very, very warm and pretty bulky. The Lamb's Pride is a little sheddy, the mohair tends to get in your lip gloss. I love it to pieces, and so does Dane Cook:

The intarsia looks like crap now that I actually know how to do it, but I wear it proudly anyway. Good luck!

14  Re: panta! (from a finnish pattern). in Knitting: Completed Projects by skrillaknits on: September 25, 2005 04:49:03 PM

My panta! I used Artyarns Supermerino, a worsted weight superwash. Really great yarn, but so stretchy I think I'll make my next one 18" instead of 20". I have to say, I struggled to find an increase that wouldn't show AND that was a mirrored increase, but in the end I settled for what wouldn't show.

This is such a good alternative to my usual winter hats which sort of make me look like a hobo.

Funny, how almost nobody did Glampyre's lace...  I did a variation on it, but had no interest in

1. Huge triangles pointing at my non-existant cleavage.
2. Sewing in all those yarn ends.

I did! Only around the neck though, I wasn't liking it, very floppy with my yarn choice and entirely too fussy. It worked for my dino version though.

16  Some Bjork inspired knits... in Knitting: Completed Projects by skrillaknits on: May 16, 2005 01:20:11 PM
So this is the third FO I've posted in a couple of days...I'm not a fast knitter, I just waited a long time to have a photoshoot...like Blanche DuBois in A Streetcar Named Desire, I have to rely on the kindness of strangers for digital pictures!

This is Simply Marilyn from Interweave, they've made the pattern free on their website since it was so popular. It was supposed to be in Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Superchunky...softest yarn on Earth. I did it in a Norweigan wool from elann.com, Gjestal Naturgarn. It's light but kind of scratchy...I think this will be a house sweater, because a large bulky sweater worn off the shoulder just looks kind of funny outside the pages of artfully styled knitting magazine. I should've listened to Maggie Rhigetti and Elizabeth Zimmerman, they both tell us to not be swayed by stuff like lilacs, puppies and soft focus lenses!

With the collar up I can impersonate my favorite artist, Bjork!



This isn't the first time she has influenced my knitting--this was last year's Halloween costume, the swan is just a Fun Fur scarf with a head attached!


Cheers kiddies,

Cirilia  Kiss

17  Klaralund! in Knitting: Completed Projects by skrillaknits on: May 15, 2005 10:09:03 PM
So I made a Klaralund over spring break...but didn't shell out 17 dollars for the Cornelia Tuttle Hamilton book. I feel slightly bad about this Undecided, but it was dead easy to figure out. I love Noro yarn and her patterns for it so I'll probably buy it in the future.

Sorry about my crazed expression, I was trying really hard to avoid that which of course made it worse!

18  RAWR: A very dinoriffic Minisweater in Knitting: Completed Projects by skrillaknits on: May 15, 2005 09:27:53 PM
My minisweater! Wore it out tonight and got many comments, all kind. It's the funniest looking thing I've ever knit and kind of my favorite. I love all of these green yarns and now they're together forever! This was a scrap-buster but I STILL have scraps so I think I'll make this lovely scrap shawl http://www.interweave.com/knit/interweave_knits/ashley.asp featured in Interweave, or maybe a memories capelet http://spunmag.com/article/050410sbcapelet

I did do the spikes, but only on the neck and they need a blocking to be more pointed. I did a crochet edge on the sleeves to make a teensy ruffle. I love crochet edges!

I'll definitely be using this pattern again, it is flattering and fun, and so very versitile. Everyone is making such lovely versions, and none of them are the same!

19  Regia Sock Yarn Trade? in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by skrillaknits on: February 07, 2005 10:25:27 AM
I have two skeins of Regia 6-Ply in Crazy Bonbon,

but I really wanted it in Crazy Hippi, which is discontinued.

If anyone would like to swap or sell me the Hippi, I'd be much obliged!
