1  Re: Knitty's "Flora" Knitalong in Knitalongs by pie on: September 23, 2005 11:45:42 PM
Here's mine:

I finished about a week ago but had camera issues. I really wanted to make it in a deep red, but I needed to use up my stash. I have a black peacoat that will go great with it when winter comes. This was a fun pattern; I may make more!

Well I finally finished with my seaming and blocking. I used Cascade 128, which is a lovely yarn, but the drape doesn't seem right for the sweater. It was a very fun knit, but it's probably the most unflattering sweater I have ever worn. In a combination of my body type and the chunky yarn, I look about a good 20 lbs heavier in the sweater!

I like the looks of it so much (when I'm not wearing it) that I will keep it around in case I ever became as tiny as the model in the book  Cheesy. Oh well, I am now comfortable with grafting.

3  Another kitty pi in Knitting: Completed Projects by pie on: September 04, 2005 09:33:24 PM
I made the kitty pi from this site: http://wendyknits.net/knit/kittybed.htm. It was fun to make and my cat really likes it. Since I'm new to felting I don't think I felted it enough or dried it right so the sides of the bed kind of fold in, but he likes it anyway.
Here is Scorpius posing for the camera:

and here he is curled up and sleeping

4  Top down raglan with skulls in Knitting: Completed Projects by pie on: September 04, 2005 09:27:48 PM
I was inspired to make a sweater with skulls like "Skully" from SnB, but more fitted. I followed the insctructions for making a top down raglan from glampyre's site here: http://glampyreknits.tripod.com/glampyrephotos/id44.html. Doing sweater's top down is great because you can try it on as you knit so you know it will fit and best of all there is no seaming  Cheesy. The chart for the skulls is also on glampyre's site. Anyway, here it is!

and a closeup of the skulls

5  Network Cable Choker in CHALLENGE 5 ENTRIES by pie on: August 23, 2005 02:37:32 PM
Here is a choker that I made from the inner wires that are found in a standard network cable:

The process of getting at these wires was a little difficult. I first had to strip to outer coating off, and then wind the inner individual cables into "skeins".

These wires were very hard to knit with; it felt like I was using my hands more than the needles. I used a US 9 because it was the only non-wood needle I had I was afraid I would break any wood ones, but I think it worked out to be the perfect needle size anyway. The choker is just worked in stockinette stitch which doesn't curl because the wires are too stiff. I just knit one row of each individual color of wire to mimic the look of how the colors are arranged at the end of a network cable where the poke out and are visible.

Thanks for the great pattern! Here's mine:

I meant to make it all in the orange yarn but ran out (I was stash busting). I also changed the handle because my crochet skills aren't up to par enough yet. I just did it in a simple seed stitch so it would match the sides of the bag. I still need to line it and I plan to take the lining up under the handle too to strengthen it. This was a really fun knit, thanks again for the pattern  Cheesy!

Daria - yours looks fabulous!
I made this for my Grandma's birthday about a month ago and just forgot to post it. I used Southwest Trading Bamboo yarn which was beautiful to knit with (although it was a little slippery) and it took just a little over two skeins. I took out one of the increase repeats because the recipient is a very tiny woman. Here's she is modeling it:

I finished this one about 2 days ago. I just haven't had chance to take a picture until now. So here's my stashbusting shrug #2 in Tahki Cotton Classic

Yay I finished! This was a pretty quick knit, but picking up all those stitches was frustrating. I'm definitely happy with how it turned out especially since it was my first adventure with any type of sleeves.

Here's my Marvin! The only mod I made was to knit his head in to more a spherical shape.

Thanks for the great pattern!
