2  Re: How do self-striping yarns work? in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by dancingbarefoot on: August 06, 2007 01:24:23 PM
I'm knitting some Jaywalkers out of Bearfoot right at the moment, they definitely do stripe, but in a subtle way.

I think I was thinking of MC's weaver's wool. Oops! But Bearfoot does have a subtle, variegated type pattern (which will sometimes stripe if the knit item is narrow enough; if it's a large knit object, the variegated color will stretch over a large area and will probably never line up in stripes), but not well-defined stripes. That's what I meant. In other words, she should expect something like this:

(link to sweater at MC's website)

and not like this:

One is the striping you sometimes get with variegated yarn, and the other is a carefully designed color repeat meant to give you a specific pattern at a certain gauge.

3  Boatneck baby sweater in Knitting: Completed Projects by dancingbarefoot on: July 08, 2007 07:22:27 PM
I started a boatneck baby sweater for charity the other day, and I just finished weaving in ends and sewing the buttons on. Why is it that the finishing work always takes longer than knitting it in the first place?

Not entirely sure the yellow buttons work, but I didn't have any buttons that matched any better.  Wink

This was a pattern of my own design (shape-wise; the colorwork is from a punchcard), done on my flatbed knitting machine with sock yarn from my stash. This sweater's so easy! Perfect for charity knitting because of the lack of shaping, and I thought boatneck would be good because it's easy to pull over a baby's big head.

4  Susitna in Knitting: Completed Projects by dancingbarefoot on: June 25, 2007 06:21:26 PM
I designed this shopping bag and knit it on my standard gauge knitting machine:

I'm calling it Susitna after Mt. Susitna, a mountain I see every day (also called Sleeping Lady). It's super stretchy and can hold a ton of stuff. I think I'll be making several of these for Christmas presents.

ETA: free pattern is available on my blog

I love those colors, laceypooh!

This was the first one I made (two others since as gifts), and I keep forgetting to take pictures of it.

It's an alpaca/wool blend but the name escapes me just now.

I finally got around to making a wee cozy for my iPod (three years after getting it! Procastinate much?).

It's a a tube in simple 2x2 rib, seamed at the bottom. Nothing fancy, but it helps use up odds and ends of yarn. Knit up in a few minutes on my standard-gauge knitting machine with less than half a skein of Socka Stahl sock yarn.

Now I have the urge to make little cozies for all my electronics.  Cheesy

7  Penny Sock in Knitting: Completed Projects by dancingbarefoot on: July 23, 2006 01:04:22 AM
My first machine-knit sock!  Grin

size 10 (US) woman's sock:

in action:

I didn't do the second one yet, but I'm just so excited! I thought it would be difficult, but it's not at all. I used the Penny Sock pattern at Dimity's (no direct link, unfortunately, but it's easy to find). It's a toe-up sock that's seamless up until the ribbing starts. I love it! Now I'm going to have to make a ton of these for myself and for gifts.  Cheesy
