1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Heavily modified lacy hug-me-tight on: March 04, 2007 03:33:34 PM
Here's my take on the Lacy Hug-Me-Tight from Tracey Ullman and Mel Clark's Knit 2 Together:

This was a bit of a challenge only because I redesigned a lot of the details to suit my taste. Other than that, the pattern was just loads and loads of k2, p2 ribbing! I used Blue Sky Alpacas' Alpaca & Silk, which is my current favorite yarn, so I loved worked on this even when I was frustrated with design elements!

More details and pictures can be found on ye olde blog.
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Knit-for-hire fees on: January 30, 2007 06:53:57 PM

I've recently happened upon a knit-for-hire situation. A woman wants me to finish a sweater for her that she started over 10 years ago! Anyway, I've never done this before, so I was wonderfing if any of you craftsters have, and if so, what do you typically charge. Also, have you found this to be worthwhile?

At long last, here's my finished Hex Coat:

I'm so happy to have finished it! You can read a bit more about it on my blog: http://www.cottageknitting.blogspot.com/
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Interweave Fiery Bolero Yarn Substitutions on: June 08, 2005 09:25:44 PM
One of my non-craftster friends and I are thinking about knitting up some fiery boleros from the Summer Interweave, but since we're both starving graduate students, we'd really like to use cheaper yarn. The pattern calls for Debbie Bliss Cathay, but does anyone know of a good substitute that is a little cheaper? Or should we bite the bullet and take out another student loan? Or is there a good website/store (we're in Chicago) to find cheap Debbie Bliss yarn. I looked on Ebay and I think it's about $5.50/ball plus shipping, which isn't horrible, but it isn't thrifty either. Okay, frugal crafsters, I know you can help us!!!!
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Some beginner confusion on: May 31, 2005 03:42:56 PM
So I'm pondering taking on my first big project in the wide world of knitting. I have some extremely basic (and probably obvious) questions though. First, what do you do when you need to cast on a really long row? Will a knitting needle hold 50 or more stiches? For some reason I can't seem to find out what happens when you knit a row that's longer than your needles. And second, when you bind off and are left with that strand, are you supposed to tie it off and/or weave it back into your knitting? I never really know what to do with the strand at the end and the one from the beginning, and I don't want my project to unravel!

Thanks in advance for helping me with my all-too-basic questions!
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Wine Scarf on: May 29, 2005 08:17:58 PM
I just started knitting, and the only yarn I have is a little ball of pastel colored mystery yarn, so I've been trying to think of little projects to do. Today I made this little "wine scarf." It's just a knitted strip to wrap around the neck of the wine bottle so that it doesn't drip on the table after you pour it. Now that I'm about to finish graduate school, I figure I need to stop getting wine stains all over my important papers! Anyway, here's some pictures:

All I did was knit a strip with a wide button hole in one end, and I decreased a little on the other end to make it easier to get the strip through the hole.

I hope you all like it and thanks for looking!
