11  Re: Tesselated Fishies Afghan KAL? in Knitalongs by briteros on: June 21, 2006 10:51:03 PM
I've actually done one of these already, and it was a fun, portable knit (if you do each piece individually).
Here's the pic of the FO, I double-stranded some Lion Brand Pound of Love acrylic yarn to make it a fluffy, yet easy-to-wash baby blanket Smiley

12  my very first sweater! in Knitting: Completed Projects by briteros on: May 05, 2006 09:43:44 PM
I can finally say that I've knit up my own sweater!
I posted it in the KAL area, but I can't contain my excitement since it is my first and all Smiley

Thanks to Calista for a great pattern... here's my McQueen knockoff sweater!

the flowers will have to wait until I can dye up some to go along with the sweater... but otherwise, I'M DONE! yay! Calista, your pattern is my very first full-length sweater!

I ended up using 2 full skeins of wool-ease and only a tiny bit of the third for the medium size. The reverse stockinette seaming really wasn't as bad as I thought it would be... Calista was right. It is quite forgiving.

Okay, I can't contain my excitement, so here's the pic of my FO (back view to prevent weird shot of my boobs):


Props go out to Calista for a wonderful pattern!

aww... i would say keep trying. are you using a cable needle? i've found that using a spare DPN seems to work better than one of those u-shaped ones.

here's the latest progress pic:


as you can see, i'm definitely making use of the chart. crossing things off as i go along takes more time, but at least i won't be repeating anything by accident  Roll Eyes

only a bit left to go.

scapina, that forest green color looks lovely... can't wait for your progress shots Smiley

based on Calista's cute pattern as shown here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=77854.0

I DLed the pattern and cast on using Lion Brand Wool-ease Sportweight (bought on sale at Joann.com). So far, I've completed one of the bodice sections and one sleeve.

Here's the progress shot... don't mind Miss Tyra, who tends to enjoy sitting on all my knitted pieces!


If anyone else is knitting or thinking about knitting up this piece. please share your thoughts and progress here Smiley

ok so i went a bit dye crazy and bought some kool-aid, a box of wilton's cake icing dye, and 2 boxes of food coloring (neon and regular).

after a few days of figuring out the colors and some overdying, here are the 8 miniskeins i came up with:


i plan on making a scarf similar to this one with my newly dyed yarn Cheesy

i used the hat pattern in the book to make this:



is it just me, or is the sizing a bit big? i made the woman's sizing using a worsted weight yarn at first, and it was HUGE on my head. i frogged it and worked the child's size and it fits perfectly. do i just have a small head or something?
