1  Re: Larger Than Life bag in Crochetalongs by crabby on: July 01, 2007 11:01:51 PM
Hey everyone!  I'm pretty far along on the LTL Bag - I've been a little obsessed with it!  Here is a photo of some of my progress.

I am using Tahki Cotton Classic, and I am loving it.  I have all twelve squares now, and I am currently trying to decide which color to use on a border around each block.

I have been very inspired by the Crochet-Along that the pattern's author created here (link) and the Flickr Group (link). 

My blog has the whole story from day one here.  Looking forward to seeing everyone else's bags!

2  Short Row Hat by Veronik Avery in Knitting: Completed Projects by crabby on: January 19, 2007 05:39:48 PM
You've seen this hat a couple of times on Craftster already, but it's been a while since I posted so I thought I would add mine to the mix.

And, I'm a "nubbin" kind of gal, so I went ahead and followed the pattern to finish the top:

Here is another self-striping Jaywalker sock (in progress).

I used Eunny's tutorial and Wilton's Icing dyes. So much fun!!  Thanks for all of the inspiration, ladies!

I dyed some Knit Picks Bare (superwash fingering weight) and thought I'd share the results.  I used Wilton's Icing Dyes, and the brown is still not as dark as I wanted it to be. I guess brown takes a LOT of dye. Anyway, I'm knitting Jaywalker socks with it, and am loving the pattern and the stripes.

5  Garter stitch scarf in Koigu & Kidsilk Haze in Knitting: Completed Projects by crabby on: April 05, 2006 09:20:18 AM

It's not anything fancy, but it sure is soft, warm, and lovely to look at.  I held together a strand of Koigu KPPPM in a green, variegated colorway and a strand of "Drab" Kidsilk Haze.  It's just over three inches wide, and almost ten feet long.  I needed a simple, satisfying project to get me over a knitting block, and this scarf did the trick.  Huzzah!

6  My first Fair Isle hat in Knitting: Completed Projects by crabby on: January 09, 2006 07:08:25 PM
I'm so happy to have finished my first Fair Isle project!  It's not very complicated and it's not perfect, but I *love* it.  More details on my blog of you are interested (link in signature below).

Update:  The January 2006 issue of Creative Knitting is in stores now, and features a hat, scarf, and wristwarmers in the crosshatch pattern.  Buy now if you love this pattern.

Here is a scarf and hat that I did in Manos del Uruguay as a Christmas present this year.

So, I was totally expecting to get the yarn for this sweater for Christmas.....but I didn't!  Elann.com to the rescue, and I should have my yarn by the end of the week.  I went with the same yarn shown in the pattern, but in the Pewter colorway.  I ordered an extra ball in case my long arms eat up yarn.  Can't wait to get started!  

Homrighaus - looking forward to seeing your finished project!

**UPDATE**  I'll be casting on tonight!!  I *heart* Elann!!

Nice job!  I've been wanting to make Suki for a long time - I even have the yarn!

It's the black, grey, and fuscia Wool of the Andes from KnitPicks.  I haven't decided which colors to use for which stripes - any suggestions??  I'm not going to add the fringe at the top. 

Unrelated: The green yarn in the background is Andean Silk (also from KP) for the Hourglass Sweater (which will be my first sweater...someday).

Here is my version, modeled by it's recipient.

Sorry I couldn't get a better picture of it - my friend was being shy.

I have to put in a plug for the yarn that I used.  It is Needful Yarns Extra Stampato yarn, 100% merino and very soft.  Each ply is a different color and they change throughout the ball.  It was very fun to knit with.  I used size seven needles, and knit the band 21" around.  When I finished, I had about 2" of the ball left.
