11  Just a drop stitch scarf in Knitting: Completed Projects by honeysuckle on: November 23, 2007 02:16:45 AM
I made this scarf in preparation for the cold weather. It was a quick knit, couple of rows in garter and a row of dropped stitches.
The actual color is a bit darker than in the pictures. My camera just refuses to capture it. Stubborn camera.  Grin

Close up of the stitches.

Needles: 7 mm
Yarn: Wonderwool (Schoeller+Stahl), 51 %wool, 49% acrylic

12  Re: Thermal from Knitty in Knitalongs by honeysuckle on: November 07, 2007 03:32:31 AM
I finished!

This sweater took me exactly one month to finish, I was knitting pretty much every day. It grew after blocking, so the sleeves are too long, and the fit is not exactly snug, but I can live with that.

Action shot!

More details on my blog.

Hi, can I jump in with my Thermal? now that I'm almost done with it  Grin
I'm using a different yarn, because I can't get Knitpicks here, and 3 mm needles. I had to adjust the stitch number to work with my gauge, but I didn't make any other changes.

This picture was taken a couple of days ago, I finished shaping the back neckline and shoulders and I'm about to start the left front.
I just wanted to thank neekie for the instructions on how to do the armhole/neckline shaping at the same time, the pattern was just too confusing for me.

Good luck to everyone with their Thermals!

14  Re: I need pics from Continental Knitters! Please read! in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by honeysuckle on: October 06, 2007 04:24:29 AM
I wrap the yarn around my entire palm and then over my forefinger

I pretty much don't change the position of my finger when I do the knit stitch, but when I purl, I hold the yarn between my forefinger and thumb to push it down.

I'm a pretty tight knitter, but I don't know if this has anything to do with me knitting continental - I've never tried knitting any other way.

15  Purple cardigan in Knitting: Completed Projects by honeysuckle on: September 24, 2007 06:54:09 AM

I knit this in preparation for the colder fall weather. The yarn is worsted weight, or maybe heavy worsted? I have no idea, the label suggested 7 mm needles (hm, according to Yarn forward, there's no US equivalent to that size - oh well, needles sizing somewhere between 10 and 11)
It's a top down raglan cardigan, the button band was done by picking up stitches.

Yarn: Adamo & Eva (Ispe), 60% merino, 20% acryl
Needles: 6 mm
Time it took: 10 days

And an action shot, photoshoped to spare you from the mess that is my bookcase.

Two more pics of it on my blog.

16  Tori Amos Lyrics Bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by honeysuckle on: August 10, 2007 02:55:07 AM
Here's a bag I made for a friend who loves Tori Amos.

The lyrics are iron-on, I just copy/pasted words from bunch of different songs and printed it on the iron-on paper. The bag itself is made from black and white canvas, with a zipper on top for closure.

I know I'm way behind the trends, but I needed a cute gift for a friend's birthday, and Sheldon seemed like a good choice.
Here he is getting scorched by the sun:

More pics of him on my blog.

18  Summer knitting (2 big pics) in Knitting: Completed Projects by honeysuckle on: July 04, 2007 11:23:15 AM
I finished these way back, but never got around to posting them. Guess I was lazy :-)

This was done in mercerized cotton, on size 3 mm circulars. The pattern is Leaf-T by knitting school dropout.
More pics of my version here.

A super short summer top. Or halter. I'm not at all pleased with the way it turned out. It was done on 6,5 mm needles and cotton/nylon blend.
More pics and reasons why I don't like it here.

19  Sharon in Knitting: Completed Projects by honeysuckle on: May 02, 2007 12:45:37 AM
I finished this a while back, only remembered to post it now.
The pattern I used was Berroco's Sharon, and the yarn is a Croatian brand.

More pics and useless details can be found on the blog.

Thanks for looking!

20  hat, scarf, bag in Knitting: Completed Projects by honeysuckle on: April 09, 2007 07:50:47 AM
I made this scarf and hat a while back, never used them much, because the winter was so warm.

I had 2 skeins left so I also made a bag.

The lining

Thanks for looking!
