1  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Re: Orangina a-long on: March 07, 2006 06:17:39 AM
Well, I wasn't going to knit this one; now going through this knitalong however, I've become inspired. I even have the perfect yarn for it already. My only concern is that I'm a tad on the busty side, not hugely so, but enough that its a concern for me when I think about projects. Have any of you had any fit problems with this? Thanks! Smiley

OMG that is GORGEOUS!! I don't think there are any compliments left that haven't already been given- so I just second them all! And I would also definately purchase the pattern, were you to make one:).

Wow- that truly is beautiful! You've also convinced me to give it a try. I was thinking of subbing with HPY- was it the worsted or the merino bulky you used? Is it soft enough to wear on bare skin? Thanks Smiley !

Oh- that has got to be one of the most beautiful jackets I have ever seen!! Did you draft the pattern yourself? Would you be willing to post a tutorial? Great job!  Cheesy

Thank you all for your help and support- I feel a lot less discouraged now! I'm working with some merino/silk roving and if it turns out ok I'll be sure to post. Thanks again everyone!
6  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / Spinning problem...solution? on: October 21, 2005 05:58:37 AM
I am a beginner at spinning and have read all the recommened books and this board before hand, and thought I knew what to expect. The actual spinning went ok, but after the roving was spun and I was winding it into a skein the yarn kept twisting back on itself until it was a big curly, twisty blob. My thought was obviously I'd put too much twist in it, so I rigged up a system to unspin it a little, but now it has barely any twist and came apart at some of the joins. I read in one of my books something about not worrying about curlies when you are setting the twist, but that doesn't seem right, and I'm not sure they were talking about the amount of curls I had. I hope I described the problem coherently. Does anyone know what is going on with my yarn? Is there a way for me to fix it? What can I do differently in the future? Please help! Huh

Wow, that is gorgeous!! I knitted the whole body and then got stuck on the lace edging. Yours is so lovely, I may just have to finish mine Smiley. Maybe you can answer my lace edging question: How do you "sew onto body" (presumably as you go)- is there a specific stitch, or do they mean a sewing machine?? Thanks!

This just got bumped up to the next project in line!! Thank you so much both Ilsa and Melosond for figuring out the pattern for all of us!!  Cheesy

Has anyone else finished one yet?

ooOOooh, it looks great! I've been thinking about making one of these but hadn't seen it on a real person. Maybe now I'll get started- thanks!

Prunille: I have yet to see LdL  Sad , so I'm not sure how she has the ballet sweater in there, but I quickly perused my IK pattern for you, and here is a bit of the sleeves instructions: I think you could just keep extending the existing sleeves until they measure 4", then there is 1 dec at both sides of center underarm  (ssk, k2tog)-work 5 rnds even. repeat 6 rows 4 times (this is pretty much the same for all sizes), work straight until sleeves measure 15". Then there are a few k1f&b increases to shape the cuff and that's it Smiley .
onemorehour- your sweater is gorgeous! I haven't liked the shaping in the center until I saw yours. Thanks for the inspiration!
