1  Re: Quant -along? knitty winter '07 in Knitalongs by nixx on: December 23, 2007 08:33:09 AM
i started it two nights ago with a thin yarn and small needles to get it smaller, but i couldn't notice the difference between the squares. i thought it was because my yarn was a solid colour, and started again with a variegated (thicker) yarn. it looks better now, and i know i'm getting almost everything right, but the sides of the squares where i pick up stitches doesn't show up much. the sides where i join the squares appears elevated, giving that look of woven strips, but the other sides are flat...
when i pick up the 6 stitches, i pick 1 up, purl or knit it, then do the next. is it right? i couldn't find a way of picking all 6 up and then purling or knitting, because the yarn tail ended up at the other side...

You should be picking the stitches up, then knitting back across.
I found an article that explains with lots of pictures:

Good luck, and I hope you'll show us the final product!

i'm pretty sure "pick up and knit" or "pick up and purl" does not mean to pick up the stitches and knit/purl them directly afterwards.  it's just to indicate how you pick up the stiches -- knitwise or purlwise.

the link that is posted above shows how to pick up stitches for a button band, but for entrelac you should only pick up stitches through the back loop like this:

picking up stitches through the back loop causes the panels to appear woven.

hope that helps. Smiley

although it's summer, i found some sws for cheap so i couldn't help but start on this!  since i couldn't find the camera, i scanned a portion of my scarf.  Lips sealed

i think scanning it actually shows the colors nicely.  btw, this is the natural navy colorway.

i had to rip three times because i didn't like the holes & it was too wide... but finally, after casting on 96 and using short row wraps, here are my results:

i decided to knit this instead of a kittyville hat, just so i can wear my hair up.  it's pretty windy around my school, so i figure this is best.  Smiley

5  Re: panta! (from a finnish pattern). in Knitting: Completed Projects by nixx on: February 16, 2006 07:18:55 PM
so awhile ago i posted a comment about how freepeople had a panta-ish item on their site.  this is what it looks like:

i asked if anyone would like to help figure it out, but i don't think anyone was interested.  i recently came across the item on the freepeople site again and feeling more daring, i gave it a go.  it's still in progress, but here's what i've got so far:

i'm gonna graft the ends together when i finish knitting it instead of making it a tie like they did.  it's actually not hard at all, and i'm considering trying another one without bobbles to see what that'd be like. Smiley

i must say, this project really helped me learn my increases and decreases!  so much fun.

angle view


and back

sorry for posting so many, pictures... i was just excited  Tongue  i don't have a brooch right now, so i'm using a safety pin.  also, i must admit... the pictures don't do justice for the color.  it was knit in sierra cranberry, which is such a rich, beautiful red and i'm really happy with it. Cheesy

9  my first FO, a hot pink bra! in Knitting: Completed Projects by nixx on: October 06, 2005 06:39:34 PM
i was crocheting a kitty ear hat yesterday in this really awesome hot pink yarn.  when i was done, i had this urge to make something else with it.  and so, this was born:

(it's REALLY hard to take a picture of your back...)

sorry about the crappy quality, these pictures were taken with a camera phone. Tongue

it's a modified version of twins (anna) from knitty, knit up in caron simply soft, watermelon.  it may be acrylic, but it's soft as hell!  my boobs are really tiny so i had to make the triangles/cups smaller, and decided to add black trim and versatile straps -- they can be worn as pictured above, criss-crossed, or tied behind the neck halter style.  i used buttons as closures to make my life easier.

although i've started on many projects (including a sweater, the uo shrug and panta -- i have knitting A.D.D.!), this was my first finished project.  i hope you guys like it. Smiley

10  tyvek origami wallet in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by nixx on: July 29, 2005 02:43:03 AM
i just recently noticed my duct tape wallet is falling apart. Cry so for the past couple of days, i've been searching far and wide for a decent wallet origami tutorial.. which i couldn't really find.  i ended up altering one to my liking, then adding some more of my own touch.  in the end, this is what i came up with! (sorry in advance for the blurry pics, they were taken with a camera phone)



opened up

inside the money pouch

"green day is love!"  Cheesy

i wrote out the lyrics to "she" by green day on it.
and i have plenty more tyvek where that came from.. haha. Wink
