1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Finished Noro scarf on: July 25, 2007 06:52:25 AM
I have finished my versio of Brooklyntweed's Noro Scarf.

I used Noro Silk Garden:  2 skeins of #86, 1 skein of #228 and 1 skein #87.  Knit on size 7 needles.

2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Kureyon boobholder 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. 
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Lizard Ridge squares (EDITTED: new pictures on page 2) 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!

4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Candy Scarf 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. 

5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Any plus size mini-sweater or boobholders out there? on: June 25, 2007 04:21:21 PM
I am modifying Glampyre's mini sweater and have been looking for information, ideas and pictures of any plus size mini sweater/boobholder that has been completed.

I am not finding any pictures of anyone wearing a plus size version of this project. 

Has anyone done one?  If so, could you please share a picture, link to your blog....info....anything?
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Brooklyntweed's Noro scarf - edited for more pictures and a new ?? 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?
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Charlotte's Web shawl.... 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

8  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / KnitPicks: Shadow for a shawl on: January 16, 2006 11:10:05 AM
I am going to be using Shadow in a shawl but am not certain what sized needle I want to use.....

If you have made anything with Shadow, could you either post a link to a piccie, or a piccie itself, and tell me what sized needle you used??

Thanks in advance!

9  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / yarn substitution and yardage??? on: October 09, 2005 09:50:53 AM
I am starting Marta from White Lies designs but I am using Cascade 220.  I had to go up two needle sizes to get the correct gauge and now I am concerned that I won't have enough yarn (pattern calls for 1100 of original yarn, knit on size 8s.  I am working on size 10s in Cascade 220 and I bought 5 skeins, equalling 1100 yards.

Won't the change in the needle size mean I need more yarn?  I seem to recall that a smaller needle size from pattern meant you used *less* yarn so won't the opposite be true? 

How do I figure this out before I get half-way through the project (for this and other projects)  only to realize I don't have enough yarn?
