1  Taj Mahal ... a summer sleeveless tank in Knitting: Completed Projects by AgnesB on: August 18, 2008 05:29:24 PM
I used 1 1/2 lb cone of Cotton Fine and this yarn is just perfect for summer tank!  Okay ... maybe not really that perfect because it is thin and the project would feels like taking forever.  But otherwise it would give a very comfortable fabric.
The pattern is from knitonthenet ... definitely a lovely pattern:

As a matter of fact, I am wearing it now ... love it! 
There are more photos and details of the project here.  Thanks for reading.

2  Dreamcatcher Medallion Cardigan ... love the medallion on the back! in Knitting: Completed Projects by AgnesB on: August 08, 2008 02:19:46 PM
The pattern is from Teva Durham's Loop-d-Loop, one of my favourite knit designers.  The knitting is a breeze, especially considering the cardigan is knitted in one piece up to the armhole, then divide for the 2 fronts and back ... minimum sewing needed.  But what I love most about this cardigan is the medallion pattern on the back:

The fit is good and I made the 2/3 sleeves because I ran out of yarn ... turned out I love this length too!  Grin

The front of the cardigan is pretty plain jane, but I love the colour of the Berroco Suede knitted up.

Here are the details of the project and more photos.  Thanks.

3  OMG! I knitted a dress (Lacy Dress from VK) in Knitting: Completed Projects by AgnesB on: July 11, 2008 06:28:34 PM
This is my first time knitting a dress ... hopefully it won't be the last time!  Sewing a dress would be much less labour-intensive ... but I really love this design.  I don't have enough yarns for the long sleeve design, so I put a length of the lace edging around the armhole and voila:

I think it works!  My almost sleeveless version is more suitable for the local weather here (3 consecutive days of 100F!).
Details of the project and more photos can be found here.  Thanks for reading and wish you all a lovely weekend.

4  Colour Wheel Quilt - my first full-size quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by AgnesB on: May 15, 2008 04:16:42 PM
I finally got my first full-size quilt finished!  And now I can really say I love quilting ... it is a lot of work, but great fun too!

Since I also knit and crochet afghans, and there are only 2 in my household, there is really no use for too many afghans and blankets.  So I think I would turn to make smaller quilt projects.   Grin

5  Finished Hanne Falkenberg's Diva ... too bad it's summer now! in Knitting: Completed Projects by AgnesB on: May 06, 2008 03:20:14 PM
I have always loved this Falkenberg design and as it turned out, the all garter stitch project has been great fun too since the structure is very unique and interesting.  I just wish I had started it earlier so that I could enjoy wearing it immediately.  Now I have to wait a few months.  But still, I love this cardigan:

6  2 lined drawstring bags plus a shopping bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by AgnesB on: April 24, 2008 06:52:13 PM
My sock pal gave me a little drawstring bag she made herself and I love it very much and have been using it as my sock bag.  However, it was a bit too small.  So, I searched for patterns on the web and found this one.  It was really easy to make ... so easy that I made 2:

I keep the blue one as my new sock bag and gave the orange one to a friend ... with a pair of handknit socks inside.   Grin
I also made made a big shopping bag from the Japanese magazine Cotton & Paint 2007 Vol. 30:

I especially like the outer denim fabric with slight stretch ... seems to be very good for shopping bag.  I left it behind for my mother during my last trip home ... but I think I am going to make another one for myself.   Wink

7  Kermit the Frog book cover in Completed Projects by AgnesB on: April 03, 2008 11:39:00 AM
This is a gift for a friend for whom I couldn't think of what knitted gift to make ... she loves reading and Kermit the Frog, so a book cover using the green fabric should be most suitable.  I got the fabric on eBay and she sent me a plastic book cover as reference to measurements.  Then I got the idea from a Japanese craft magazine (リネン&コットンと暮らす。vol.3 ISBN978-4-529-04473-8).

The book mark was made using the book thong crochet pattern from Crochet Me.

I think I've done a decent job ... except that the position of the book cover was not really in the center of the book cover when there is a book inside.  Point to remember next time!  LOL!

There are more photos on my blog.  Thanks.

8  2 pairs of Nancy Bush socks to start 2008 in Knitting: Completed Projects by AgnesB on: January 20, 2008 12:43:24 PM
2008 is my year of Nancy Bush patterns.  Whenever I start a sock project, I would first consider suitable ones from Nancy Bush's patterns.  So far, I've made 2 pairs.  One is Conwy from Knitting on the Road:
I love the contrasting heel flaps and toes; the pattern is easy and the Koigu is such a lovely yarn!
The second pair is more challenging to me ... Laila's Socks from Folk Knitting in Estonia:
Working with this pattern, I learned the best way for me to hold the 2 strands and now I am more confident with colourwork ... and most probably would do more! Grin
More photos and details on the socks can be found on my blog.
Thanks and Happy Knitting in 2008 to everyone!

9  Sashiko Jacket - Christmas present for myself in Knitting: Completed Projects by AgnesB on: December 22, 2007 08:02:45 PM
I started this project in November 2006 and finally have it finished today.  It is an interesting project to work with ... and I am still loving the Japanese sashiko designs ... A LOT!  One thing not so perfect is my gauge, which turned out to be tighter than it should be ... so the jacket has become a cropped one. 
More pictures can be found here.

10  DROPS Swing Jacket in Knitting: Completed Projects by AgnesB on: November 28, 2007 12:10:53 PM
I've seen lots of people making this pattern and I thought, and still think, that a heathery yarn would come out best.  Since I don't want to buy new yarns, I was happy to find that there are 2 gauge versions and I had yarns for the smaller one.  My solid-colour version isn't too bad, I think.  I always like the shape of swing jacket ... very cute.

Details and photos of the project are here.  Thanks for reading.
