1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Winter Knitty - Forecast on: January 11, 2006 12:34:50 PM

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.
2  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....
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Neat dec/inc in k2p2 ribbing on: May 23, 2005 11:51:43 AM
Hi all

I am working on a sweater that calls for k2p2 ribbing for the body (Bella Paquita..actually) with shaping at either side of the waist. My problem is the shaping with the dec and incs. When I do my shaping, i end up with lots of broken and ugly ribbing lines down the waist and I can never get it to look like one continuous band going down the waist with the ribbing on either side to sorta bend into the shaping line. I end up with jagged ribbing that stops in the middle of the pattern and start again somewhere else whenever i have to inc again. Major Ripville...What is the best way to do dec/inc in 2x2 ribbing and not look like crap?

4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Looking for Cherry Blossom Shawl pattern on: May 13, 2005 02:58:37 AM
This pattern is from Interweave Knits mag in the Spring 2002 issue. I am only interested in the shawl pattern. Does anyone have any old or extra mags they'd like to sell? Or has anyone seen just this pattern for sale online? I've looked but it seems that only Interweave knits has it. Suggestions very welcomed. Thank you.

7  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Bulky Alpaca -- What should I make with it? on: April 12, 2005 12:05:05 AM
So having discovered the divine alpaca yarn... I scored 4 hanks (110 yds each) of bulky 100% baby alpaca yarn from ebay for 20 bucks total. Yes, you heard me ladies, 20 bucks only. This baby usually goes for 12.50 bucks a hank in my LYS. Naturally, although the color is not something I would go for (orange/yellow variegated), I had to have them. Now comes the problem. What should I make with it? I don't want to make hats (cuz I normally don't wear them anyway), and armwarmers seem to use up so little of it. Scarves.. I have too many.. and I really don't want to take away the softness of the yarn at all.. I did a quick search on knitty.com and maybe..just maybe.. the Cathode sweater? That way I get to use up these 4 hanks. Or maybe a tube top (I am salivating over TereKnit's Floss...but dunno whether 440 yds is enough) Otherwise, I am at a lost for ideas.

Come on fellow knitters, show me your grand ideas! And thanks in advance.  Smiley

10  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Vintage Knitting Patterns on: March 15, 2005 01:36:02 PM
Does anyone have vintage knitted sweater and dress patterns that they are willing to share? Recently I am in a vintage mood but I don't know where to start looking for such patterns. Saw some on ebay and other online places, but I'd like to have access to a few pieces to make sure I understand vintage knitting terms (I hear they are a little different). Most vintage patterns are several decades old so I don't think copyright will be a problem.

I am especially craving a full skirt or 50s dress pattern (knitted) if anyone has them.

Thanks alot in advance and I will worship the ground you walk if you share!
