141  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Random Swap round 3 :) Sign ups july 21-august 15 send october 7 on: August 15, 2011 10:15:32 AM
I've basically stalked everyone in my group.  Only a day left, now!

Me too. I've been wanting to buy a new sewing machine for a while (mine only works when it feels like it), so this is a good excuse!

Mine magically continues sewing after I've taken my foot off the pedal, going 100mph and eating fabric as it pleases.  I'm sort of attached to it, and can usually wrangle it into submission, but my eyes have been wandering lately.     
142  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Jogless Stripes Not Working? on: August 04, 2011 02:26:58 PM
My jogless stripes look like crap.  I'm using the method described here: http://techknitting.blogspot.com/2007/01/jogless-stripes.html for 'stationary jogless stripes'.  Knit row one of the new colour as usual, and then slip the first stitch when knitting the second row.  Right?  

The first time I tried it it was beautiful.  Since then, it's not working.  I'm obviously doing something wrong all of a sudden, but I don't know what.  Any ideas?  Or any recommendations for a better way of doing jogless stripes?  Here's what they're looking like:

I finally sent my questionnaire in.  Holy crap I'm excited.  Also nervous.  I can't wait to start, seriously.

That cowl!  I thought it was a little cuff at first, but it's a whole cowl!  It's gorgeous.  The stitches in your colourwork look so nice and even.  And I'm in love the brown yarn you used.

Those are amazing.  I would wear both of them in a heartbeat, and I don't usually like rings.  I love love love the blue one.  The gold looks great.  You should absolutely do a bunch more.  I think they look fantastic.

I nearly had a heart attack when I realized I haven't been a member for a month (long-time lurker), but then noticed that I will be before the sign-ups close.  So yay!  My questionnaire's all filled out, I just need to wait a week to send it in Smiley

I've wanted to do swaps for ages.  I'm so psyched for this.

147  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Socks! on: July 25, 2011 05:24:26 PM
I've only been knitting for about a year and a half, so I don't have many socks to my name.  Yet.  All are knitted on size 0 DPNs, using a generic toe-up sock pattern. 

These are the first pair I actually finished.  Superwash merino.  I saw a fingerless gloves pattern on Ravelry that used a similar stripe pattern and was inspired.

And the second pair.  They're a wool/silk/alpaca blend in a gorgeous tweed and are a little tight around the ankle, and a little thick, but the yarn should stretch after a while. 

You can see there how the heel came out too small.   

Then there's the first socks I ever tried...

..and never finished.  But I got one done!  They're for my sister.  Originally meant to be a Slytherin scarf, but the yarn was purchased when I was too much of a newbie to know that sock yarn =/= good scarf yarn.  So Slytherin sock(s) they became.

Although the heel is crappy, they're the comfiest of the three.  I think the orange/red pair is my favourite, though.  My plan is to include cables in the next pair.  Wish me luck.

Gorgeous.  It almost looks like plaid, a bit.

So cool.  I like the two plaid ones the most.  Have you considered putting them on headbands or something?  Like here:
http://craftsnob.com/2011/02/t-shirt-headband/.  The flowers look very similar to yours, although they're made out of T-shirt.

(Yes, I'm a crappy photographer)  

The colours in the first picture are most accurate.  It's 100% merino, and super soft and squishy.  It's not perfect, there are some thick and thin spots, but I adore it anyway.  Especially the colours.  What do you think?  I might make a hat with it, or I might just keep it as is to squish and admire.
