21  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Check out my gorgeous boyfriend! (Three Neckwarmers) on: April 18, 2005 06:29:05 AM
I made two neckwarmers over the winter (I was never fond of scarves) and just finished a third, lighter version.  I wanted something I could cram down the neck of my jacket that would block the wind but not be too hot.

Here's the first one, it's more of a cowl, really: bulky and shapeless.

The second is my favorite.  It's loosely based on this pattern http://www.needlebeetle.com/free/nw.htm

If it looks a little stretched out it's because I made it to fit myself but my much more photogenic (if slightly larger-necked) BF is modeling.

The third I knit in garter stitch with short row shaping.

That's it.  Just some FOs; I thought I'd post for closure.
22  UNITED STATES / Louisiana / Planning a trip to New Orleans - any suggestions? on: April 11, 2005 12:39:01 AM
I'm going to be visiting New Orleans with my family for about a week this June.  Can anyone give me suggestions of fun crafty/voodoo-y/piratical things to do and see?  My sister and I are trying to fill out our itinerary so we don't get dragged to the D-Day museum by our father. 
Ideas of stuff a bunch of teetotalers can do during the twilight hours would be especially appreciated.
23  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Zaftig Dilemma on: April 09, 2005 05:09:53 PM
I wanted to try the Zaftig pattern from the Summer 2004 Knitty but as soon as I was done with those marvelous short-row shaped cups I realized I'm nowhere near daring or skinny enough to show off a handmade bikini top.  I though about making it into a full-length tank top but I'm concerned it would be too warm to be practical.  Any suggestions?

BTW, the yarn is Lion's Microspun (100% acrylic).  Also, I used a provisional cast-on for the straps because I wasn't sure how long I wanted to make them.  I was thinking about making them cross in the back.
24  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Spidery Hobo Gloves on: April 04, 2005 11:34:26 PM
I made these for my BF to keep his hands warm while biking.

The spider pattern is from Barbara Walker's Charted Knitting Designs and the glove pattern is very loosely based on Marnie Maclean's Hooray for Me gloves, adapted for some gi-normous hands.

This is me trying to adjust the contrast so you can actually see the design:
25  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Long tail cast OFF? on: March 02, 2005 02:43:29 PM
Does anyone know of a cast off method that matches the long tail cast on?  I'm starting a top-down sweater and I want the collar to match the sleeves and waistband.  I know I could use the tubular cast on/off, but I really like the neatness and the stretchiness of the long tail method.
