1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Knitty's Zigzag--pullover/tunic style top on: March 30, 2007 05:39:25 PM
Hot off the needles (I literally cut the last end less than 10 minutes ago), here is my new favorite FO ever.  I am sorry for the crappiness of the pictures, it's dark here already, but I just had to share.

I used just over 8 skeins of Cashmerino DK, I did not double strand it as the pattern says.  This created a lightweight, drapey garment.  It took me about 6 weeks.  The pattern is pretty straightforward, I think it's a great design, very unique how the designer incorporates "zigzags" throughout the  piece.

I haven't seen too many of these out there but I highly recommend this pattern!!

Cat Hair Sweater!!  Shocked
3  Illinois / Illinois: North / Chicago--Knitting Workshop sale...when is it? on: February 16, 2007 05:34:06 PM
So to my understanding Knitting Workshop on Lincoln has a sale at the end of the Winter to unload their heavier yarns. 

When does this magical sale occur?  Anyone?  Bueller?
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Denise return policy? on: February 02, 2007 07:53:02 PM
Well I have finally had it with my Denise needles.  They're too chunky, too inflexible, and two of the cables have snapped at the joins in the past two weeks. 

I know they have a lifetime warranty, does anyone know anything about their return policy?

I'm buying the Options set.
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Telemark Ski Sweater on: January 17, 2007 02:55:31 PM

This took me about 3 months off and on, and I used Knitpicks Telemark yarn as recommended.

Pretty straightforward pattern but I wish it alloted for steek placement when knitting!  Cutting the steeks was pretty messy because of it and I had to reinforce it with another round of crochet inside.  It's all good now though.

It's very warm and I hope it keeps me warm for many winters to come.

I recommend this pattern if you have steeked before and are looking to expand your colorwork knowledge.  Not a pattern for the faint of heart, as I'm convinced it raised my blood pressure a few points!

ETA a better pic of the closeup of the motif.
6  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Injured cat--any ideas on comforting crafts? on: December 14, 2006 12:58:02 PM
So my poor kitty broke his foot.  Now he looks like this:

Does anyone have any ideas for any kind of toys/comforting items I could make for him?  He is supposed to have limited activity for the next 4-6 weeks so I'm trying to come up with things to entertain him that don't require him to run around the house.  I don't want him to be bored out of his kitty mind while he's mending!
7  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / Finished FrouFrou--Lion Brand Wool Ease on: November 22, 2006 09:05:00 PM
I hope you like it!  It was a weird pattern to make but I am happy with how it all came together.  Please ignore the weird pin, I need to find a decent one before I can wear this out in public!

8  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Strength of wool? on: November 02, 2006 04:31:26 PM
I went to a thrift store this afternoon and got two 100% wool sweaters to unravel.  I'm in the  middle of unraveling one and I'm finding the yarn is so weak that I can easily tear it in half just by tugging on one strand using both hands.  It's lace/fingering weight. 

Is this normal? Should I continue salvaging it or just toss it?
9  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Linux Illusion Scarf on: October 20, 2006 06:56:01 PM
My oldest UFO is finally complete!

Started in December 2005, finished today.  It was a pretty boring knit and that's why it took me so long.  It's probably about 7 feet total.  I'm so happy to have it done!
10  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Help finding image from Vogue Knitting Winter 04/05 on: October 02, 2006 08:46:21 PM
OK you all probably think I am *insane* but I remember once that someone posted a pic of a really cute pullover that had fair isle on it along with a buckle.  I believe it was from VK Winter 04/05.  I am *NOT* asking for the pattern--I am just seeing if anyone knows the name of the sweater I'm talking about or has a link to a pic of it.  I'd like to make sure I'm thinking of the right sweater before I go hunting down a copy of this issue.  Thanks!
