1  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Re: Eunny Jang's Deep V argyle vest on: March 31, 2006 12:46:01 PM
BeginnerKnitter: The steeking was not bad at all for me. It's alot easier than I thought. My gripe is picking up stitches. But then again, I've always disliked picking up stitches.

Thanks for the compliments.

Although I didn't participate in this KAL, I have been following up on everyone's progresses. Finished mine this week and I thought I'd post a picture to show how mine turned out. Yarn used is Rowanspun DK Eau de Nil and Snowball.

thank you very much lois. I am glad that my finished forecast has inspired more ppl to knit this beautiful sweater. Stephanie's original design is very unique, and frankly, my mods were just a change in the bobble size and sleeve ribbing. If that makes the design more appealing to you, then all the better! i apologize for not being able to respond to your comment, cuz blogger doesn't display all commenters' emails and blog addresses. But thank you for stopping by  Smiley

I hadn't realized about the pulling down part, but no that wasn't intentional. It doesn't ride up for me, and I've worn it the whole day. Thanks for the compliments, you all sure know how to make a girl feel good about her knits  Grin

Long time no post. Just finished the Forecast cardi from Knitty. I've read that some people think this design is a bit off- but I love it. I used Cascade Tweed as recommended, but changed the bobble size and arm details. More details on my blog.

Here's my take. I didn't have spare worsted weight yarn lying around so I doubled up two strands of sportsweight. Took less than 100 yds total.
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Inspired by Emily Mills on: September 02, 2005 12:46:46 AM

For this hat, I based the directions on Knit One Felt Too's Classic Cloche, and used some cream colored wool I had lying around. After felting repeatedly in my teeny tiny bathroom sink (now I understand why Emily Mills charges $200-300 for a hat.. damn.. that was hard work), I took my scissors and went at it.  For the embellishments, I bought a yard (who sells roving in yards? Don't they sell them by weight?) of orange roving at my LYS when I picked up a set of felting needles. From then on it's just stab stab stab stab... very therapeutic if you ask me. Good workout for the flabbies on the arms too....

This is where I found the Figure 8 cast-on for my socks. It's really helpful. Basically, you loop around both needles for however many stitches you'd like, k-tbl (knit through back loop) for the first needle, and k as usual for the second needle. Hope it helps you out too.

I just finished a pair. It's my first pair of socks, so the seaming still leaves alot to be desired. But here they are!
