1  Roza Socks from Spring 2007 IK in Knitting: Completed Projects by mizuiro on: March 20, 2007 09:19:20 PM
They're dead simple to knit, but switched it up by making these socks on Panda Cotton, a bamboo/cotton/elastic blend with lots of stretch.

It fits really well so far, but I wasn't able to get a good picture of it on my foot.

The colorway is Strawberry Lime, and they were knit on size 1 circulars.  I think I'm going to be pretty happy with these!  More details on my blog is you want to visit Smiley

I knit these yesterday.  They go really fast!  I only got to wear them for a few minutes this morning, because today was unseasonably warm.  I made them with Berroco Pure Merino.  It took slightly more than one ball, and the fabric is thick and soft.  Machine washable too.  I'm going to wear them every chance I get!

I just starting this puppy on Monday and I'm on row 68.  I'm using a heavier yarn though (Cascade 220) because it's what i had on hand.  It's working up nicely though.

I hope I get it done, because I've been having a really rotten attention span when it comes to projects lately.

Here's my mp3 player cozy.  I have a 20GB iriver that I wanted to avoid scratching up when I put it in my bag.  The headphone covers also have an annoying habit of falling off in my bag and everywhere else (finally lost one last Friday at the movies), so I knit this up in a ball of Bernat Sox in Salsa.  I used waaay less than half the ball, and grafted the ends together.  I can stuff everything in the sock, pull up the cuff and everything is covered and secure.

That funky piece of tape is on the mail I got today, which covers the eternal messiness of my desk.  I finished it last week before I started my new job.  That mp3 player is a sanity saver!

5  Canteen Bag from IK Fall 2005 in Knitting: Completed Projects by mizuiro on: January 11, 2006 01:25:03 PM
I made this in Patons Classic Merino (?),  2 balls of black and one ball of red worked double stranded.  It had been knitted up for quite a while, I just hadn't felted it yet.  Today was that day, because jeans needed washing.  Second FO of the day!

The only scary part is that the strap is way too long.  It called for a 60 inch strap initially, and I if I remember correctly I made it a little shorter.  I'm going to have to do some sort of emergency cut and splice, and probably felt that part again.  If anyone has ever done this let me know how it went.  It's that or try to make an adjustable strap of some sort, which I've never done before.

6  Landscapes Felted Bag: I have stash busted. in Knitting: Completed Projects by mizuiro on: January 11, 2006 11:25:15 AM
I keep telling myself not to buy yarn on a whim, but about a couple of months ago Joann had Lion Brand Landscapes on Sale for about $3.50 or something like that, and they had five balls of the Rose Garden colorway left.  I bought it, thinking i could wrangle a felted bag out of it.

The pattern is the Fulled Lopi Tote from helloyarn.com.  Here it is in all the wool blend glory:

The before shot doesn't so up the blue as well, but it sticks out prominently after felting.  The halo post felt gives the bag a funny cast  that I'm not sure I like.  It sort of muddies the color down a bit.  The part that bugs me the most is the pebbled effect of the acrylic bits sticking out of the wool makes me think the bag has broken out in pimples.  It's creepy, yet neat all at once.

I'm starting a new job next week and wanted to make a little bag to bring with me to work to carry lunch or snacks, or maybe just books and an mp3 player for breaktime, and this is it.  I used what I had on hand, and I didn't buy extra yarn for it.  Whoo me Smiley  Even if it's not quite what I wanted, it'll be more interesting than what everyone else is carrying.  I'm going to get some sort of closure for it and attach it as well. 

If I ever buy this stuff again, which is unlikely, I'll get one of the darker/primary colorways.  At least I got rid of the stuff ^_^

7  Re: Clapotis from Knitty in Knitalongs by mizuiro on: January 06, 2006 12:25:25 AM
Now that I finally have a camera, I can show my Clapotis progress.  I started in late October/early November and stopped for a bit for the holidays.

It's in Noro Kureyon, color 92.  I didn't know it had every color in the rainbow in it unitl I got it home, but I really, really like it.  This is about four or five balls into it, and it's not long enough yet.  Poor, stubby Clapotis.   It's my first knitting related post to my new blog as well.  If I feel like making it again, it will be in a darker colorway.  This type of color combo will be a good change for me, though.

8  Feathers, Fans and Vines: Two Lacy Gift Scarves in Knitting: Completed Projects by mizuiro on: December 25, 2005 03:13:32 PM
Score!  I got a digital camera for Christmas!  Now I can prove I'm not just talking about knitting, but actually doing it.

Here are the two scarves I made for gifts this Christmas.  The first is tried and true Feather and Fan stitch, made in Joann Angel Hair yarn for a friend that really likes purple.  2 balls of yarn, size 11 needles, and fuzzy yarn is now a lot more interesting.  More shape than straight rows, and when you're actually in the room with it, you can still see the lacy holes made by the YOs.  I just couldn't get a pic that showed them very well:

The Traveling Vine scarf is for my mom.  This scarf is the result of lots of headache.  She said something about not wearing a scarf very often because she doesn't stay outside very long, so I ripped all the thick, warm knitting out that she wouldn't wear in a million years.  I saw this pattern in the Knit Scarves! book and had a eureka moment.  It's light, not too long, and the wool and cashmere blend in the Cashsoft is warm and feels really good on.  I was convinced into buying 3 balls at the yarn store, but it only took one ball and a good part of a second.  I officially hate p2tog through the back loop now, and forever, but damn it's pretty:

She really liked it.  I hope she wears it!  They go with the pink socks I also made her for Christmas.
