101  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Re: finished pin up queen on: May 18, 2005 08:38:15 AM
It's beautiful in that sexy carefree French girl way. Good job for a first sweater!

There is a Rilo Kiley show the next day, and I just want to say, a weekend in charming Northampton does a body good!

(I'm graduating from UMass Amherst and I start working at Webs next week!)

whoa. last wednesday i picked up silk garden #84 and sunday a pair of 24" addi turbos so that I i could make Klaralund sans pattern. you won't get mad 'cause i'm copying you, right? Wink

Thank you everyone! I've been lurking on Craftster for a long time now but I'm graduating college soon and I'm going to be working at Webs, (www.yarn.com) so my brain is just ALL KNITTING, ALL THE TIME. You're all making me feel very welcome!

Good luck on the sweater, it's really quite fun to just wing it, and it comes out looking awesome. I want to see it when you're done! What's cool is that a lot of people who used the pattern complain that it's too big...when you're improvising you can totally custom fit that bad boy. Addi's are so great btw, this was my first project with them.

Omigosh!! That is the most beautiful minisweater I've seen yet! I can't believe you got the stripes to line up when you were seaming the armholes! Great job:)

Thanks, cq! The stripes were a large pain in the ass, especially since the yarns were all different weights and weaving in the ends made huge bulky patches. But I love stripes and wanted to get rid of scraps! I have to tell you though, the stripes lined up on their own--since it's knit all in one piece, there was no matching to worry about! Just another reason why Glampyre's pattern rules.
105  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Some Bjork inspired knits... 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
106  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Klaralund! 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!

107  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / RAWR: A very dinoriffic Minisweater 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!

108  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: I just got my Loop-d-Loop book! on: May 12, 2005 01:14:38 PM
I can't get over the tank top that has the special steek v-neck...it's really hard to describe, but there is a V of dropped stitches in the middle, making for a highly sexy (and well-ventilated!) top for summer.

I feel like the yarn (GGH Bergamo) has been discontinued though...I'll investigate...
109  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Regia Sock Yarn Trade? 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!
