1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Knitted Lavender-filled Eyebag on: July 04, 2006 07:48:46 PM
Hello all,

As a very late Mother's Day present, I knit up a lavender-filled eyebag for my migraine-prone mother. 

You can find a saucy pic of my wearing it and the pattern on my blog: http://pinkmonkeyknits.blogspot.com/2006/06/luxurious-lavender-filled-eyebag.html

I hope you all like my first original design and pattern.

2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / How to add curved edge to sweater? on: November 08, 2004 07:06:49 PM
I thought my fellow craftsters would be a great resource for this -

I want to modify a pattern to add a curved bolero-style edge like this sweater http://www.urbanoutfitters.com/shopping/product/detailmain.jsp?itemID=5377&itemType=PRODUCT&iMainCat=10&iSubCat=23&iProductID=5377

Problem is I have no idea how to do it.  I'm guessing you have to do some series of decreases but I'm not sure how to do it to make that nice curve.  Any ideas?  Thanks all.

3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Help determining if patterns fit on: May 01, 2004 12:10:46 PM
I'm sure this question depends a lot on the yarn, stitch pattern, etc but I was wondering how to determine if a garment will fit correctly based on the pattern.  I'm going to use the Go with everything cardigan in the Stitch n Bitch book as an example- I have a 41" bust, but the medium size measures 40" and the large is 43".  I prefer clothes to fit a little tighter than be baggy and unflattering, but I can't ensure that the smaller one will fit right.  Also, in many other patterns, the largest size only goes up to like a 40" bust.  I would assume that it would fit since I usually wear a large in clothes that I buy but should i put in the money and time to make something that could potentially be stretchy and look fine or could just be too small?  

I hope I'm explaining this alright, I think my brain hasn't quite turned on fully yet but I'd appreciate any tips!
