1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Short Row Hat by Veronik Avery 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:

2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Garter stitch scarf in Koigu & Kidsilk Haze 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!
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / My first Fair Isle hat 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).

4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Total number of stitches in Clapotis? on: September 23, 2005 03:13:06 PM
I looked around for the answer to this, but didn't come up with anything. 

Does anyone know the number of stitches in a full-size Clapotis?

I'm too lazy to do the math, especially if someone else has already done it.  Why reinvent the wheel, ay?  I'd like to be able to impress upon a certain Clapotis recipient (my mother) why her Mother's Day gift is so late.  Grin
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Clapotis look-alike in Sunset Magazine on: March 24, 2005 01:38:53 PM
Anyone else have the Northwest edition of Sunset Magazine? Check out page 155 for a Clapotis clone!  You can also go to the web site if you don't get Sunset - the picture is on the front page, but you can't see the detail as well as in the mag photo.  Made me laugh b/c I am working on a Clap in "Grass" color KnitPicks Elegance, and it looks very similar to the picture.  Grin 

Anyone considered putting fringe on your Clap?  It looks cute in the picture of this Clap-clone.

6  KNITTING / Knitalongs / My So Called Scarf & Cross-Hat-ch on: February 24, 2005 06:58:58 PM
Anyone want to knit along with me on the "My So Called Scarf" and matching hat, "Cross-Hat-ch?"  Links to pictures & patterns (free!) of these are:
Hat *no longer available* (04/05)

I am going to use Lion Brand Landscapes yarn in Rose Garden - it is gorgeous (if you like pink)!

The MSCS pattern calls for Manos del Uruguay, but Lion's Brand Landscapes will make a fine substitution if you want to save a few bucks (I do).  I got 6 balls, at 55yds each, and hopefully that will be enough.

Anyhow, let me know if you want to knit along. 

*edit* The hat pattern is now being published, so it's no longer available until it comes out in Creative Knitting in Jan.'06.  Poo.
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / 1st FO: Pixie Hat from Knit Wit on: February 16, 2005 10:15:27 PM
YAY!  I'm done!  My first knitted FO - the Pixie Hat!  I realized, too late, that it the choice of red yarn was a poor one - I look like Little Red Riding Hood!  Oh well, I love it anyway and I can't wait to wear it out in public.
Here it is in all it's glory.  My BF is really excited that it's done, natch!

Side view. *Oh my!  What a pointy hat you have!*
8  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Pixie Hat from KnitWit - newbie questions on: February 09, 2005 06:04:11 PM
This is a call for help from a new, optimisitic, self-taught knitter who may be in over her head for a first ever FO.  I am dying to start the pixie hat in Knit Wit, in the sleek option, and I need some help with the beginning of the pattern.

CO X stitches for my melon size - got it.
Work even - got it - seed stitch - yup, got that - and this is where I get lost...

...until 1" from beg, ending, with RS (right sides - got it) facing.  Huh?  Does that mean to knit until I am an inch into the CO stitches, then seed stitch until I am an inch from the end, and then I knit to the end?  Where does the RS come in there?  Is that the RS of the CO stitches?  Doh!  Help!  The rest of the pattern is perfectly clear to me, but I'm stuck at the starting gate.   Embarrassed

I know that this is basic stuff, and that I really need to find a local SnB to attend for help, but I am really itching to start on this at home.  Take pity on me!

Ookpik - you out there?  I love this hat and can't wait to make one!
