3  Kureyon boobholder in Knitting: Completed Projects by fiber_freak on: July 16, 2007 06:38:45 PM
I am sure by now, you have heard of the Boobholder!

This is my third attempt at one but this last attempt was done more thoughtfully, including concern for gauge and math.  The Math4Knitting podcast has really turned me on to the idea of math and knitting being friends. 

At any rate, below is my Boobholder.  This was knit for a size 18 (48" bust).  I made a handful of mods which are outlined in my blog named below.  The basics are my gauge was 16 stitches/21 rows per 4".  I used 6-7 balls of Kureyon in color #170, lot A.  I cast on 57 stitches and did not follow the pattern closely but did definitely use it as a blueprint. 

I did block it harder than I realized and it is now a bit boxy and not so boobholder-y.  Another blocking can not hurt things, huh?

I love raglan shaping, how pretty!  I was freakish about the stripes....Kureyon, not so good for OCD people. 

I am happy and pleased with this overall, I must say.

4  Lizard Ridge squares (EDITTED: new pictures on page 2) in Knitting: Completed Projects by fiber_freak on: July 12, 2007 11:08:30 AM
I have begun working on the Lizard Ridge blanket from Knitty.  Here are some pictures of my recently completed squares. 

I break the yarn down into 2 cakes because I can't stand the messy-mess that the skein turns into when working from both ends. 

Here are some of the colors that will be worked up in the next batch!

5  Candy Scarf in Knitting: Completed Projects by fiber_freak on: July 01, 2007 03:56:02 PM

This is just a simple scarf double-stranded with Berroco Candy and Ingenue and 15 stitches wide.   I have so many other WIPs right now, it was nice to finish something. 

I have been knitting for a long time (15 or so years....) and this is only the second scarf I have made.

Looks like I am going to rip mine back completely because the puffy sleeve doesn't suit my liking and the examples I have seen online have straight raglan sleeves which I think look very nice.

Other than the puffy sleeve, I actually like the way the garment will look on me.  It needs to be longer....maybe another 4" so it doesn't fall right under my bustline but a bit below.

Other modifications include starting with 7 more stitches than the instructions called for, using YOs as the increase and knitting more rows for the body and raglan yoke area.  Very specific modifications can be found on my blog. 

Am I over-worrying the striping of the body and sleeves to be matching?

7  Brooklyntweed's Noro scarf - edited for more pictures and a new ?? in Knitting: Completed Projects by fiber_freak on: June 12, 2007 06:32:01 PM
I have started a Noro scarf, inspired by Brooklyntweed. 
See his finished project at http://brooklyntweed.blogspot.com/2007/04/noro-scarf.html

This is the first portion of the scarf.  The colors go so well togethe!

These are the yarns I am using.

Close-up (to make people want to go buy yarn....)

Same....what gorgeous colors.

Anyone else worked up one of these?  Does anyone know the proper care and feeding of this yarn for cleaning purposes?

8  Charlotte's Web shawl.... in Knitting: Completed Projects by fiber_freak on: June 11, 2007 06:02:58 PM
I have finished Charlotte's Web shawl....but it is not as big as I would like or need....and even with buying another skein of Koigu.  Ugh.

Nothing can beat the colors of Koigu.  Well....maybe Noro.  =D

9  Saxon Braid Scarf in Knitting: Completed Projects by fiber_freak on: July 19, 2005 08:45:23 PM
OK, I have been working on the Saxon Braid scarf from Knitting on the Edge...for about 8 months now on and off.  I worked it in Cascade 220 on size 10 needles. 

Ridiculously easy pattern....(make sure you get the errata)....

Here is a close-up of the cables

Here is how the rows looked BEFORE dropping the stitches to create the self-fringe:

Here are two pictures of the actual fringing

Final of fringe -- bear in mind I don't dig the squiggly fringe...it will be steamed out when blocked.

why i need to learn how to either (a) knit 2 socks at once or (b) take notes!  more details on my blog...[img width=216 height=177]

In _At Knit's End_ (which is ha-laroiusly funny, BTW), she talks about this bit where someone knits two socks at a time...one INSIDE the other....ACK.
