1  Tomato (short-sleeved sweater) in Knitting: Completed Projects by Amethyst on: May 06, 2007 06:29:22 AM
From No Sheep for You by Amy Singer, made with Blue Sky Alpacas Dyed Cotton in Periwinkle and Stone. Here's a closeup of the stitch pattern:

And here's the shirt, post-blocking:

I'm really pleased with how it came out, I'm wearing it right now, in fact. It's a really quick knit, only took me two weeks.

2  Gah in Knitalongs by Amethyst on: March 04, 2007 11:27:22 AM
I finally got around to taking a picture of my sweater-in-progress. It's Under the Hoodie from SnB, and I've been working on it since December. I kept meaning to pin the pieces to take pictures, and finally did today. So it's just today that I'm realizing that one skein was off in colours:


The picture is a little fuzzy, but basically the back part (the lower one) and the pocket have darker greys and lighter blues than the background of the front (upper) part. I was so sure that I had matching dyelots, but apparently I did not. I don't know how I didn't notice. I can't decide if I should finish it, or get new yarn to make the front part again (and the pocket again.)

I smoothed it down in the first picture, it's actually a tall hat, all the froofiness is in the back. I've never worn such a big hat before, so I wasn't sure what to do with it at first. After some experimenting, I really like it. I can put it in the back like that, or pick it up by the top to position it to the side.

Or, I can do the band-behind-the-hairline thing that I see so many people doing. That's for when it's warmer, of course.

Here's the hat I made, and a picture of the clapotis.

The hat's a little big, I'm not sure what to do about it yet. It's made of acrylic yarn. It doesn't look bad, I'd just like it to be a tighter fit.

Looks good, incense. Smiley

I finished mine! I was going to do fringe, but decided not to. It's done with Bernat black and Bernat satin in Palm.

This was a lot of fun to do. I used 16" circs, 6mm (I think that's a 10.5 US)

I made another one of these, but this time I did it with 92 stitches on needles that were a size smaller, and only doing 5 repeats instead of 15. It turned out great!

I used some mystery yarn that I had with no label, some sort of acrylic I guess, greens, blues, and purples, not quite as bright as the picture:

I used a pearly white button that didn't photograph well.

As for gauge swatches wasting yarn, who says you can't undo a gauge swatch at the end of the project if you need the yarn?

Progress shot!

It's about 1/4 of the way done.

Here she is, finally. I had fun picking out the buttons from my far-too-huge button stash.

I find that it's a little wide for my head, especially since my hair is short. I've been wearing it around my neck, folded, and love it like that. Since it's narrow in the back and the buttons make it adjustable, it's not bulky back there like a scarf would be.

This is the biggest knitting project that I've done so far. I love how it turned out; the yarn has a nice shimmer to it that you can't really see in the picture (I must have taken a dozen pictures before I was content with that one). Unblocked, since I like the curl.

10  Spring in Winter hat and scarf in Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller by Amethyst on: October 18, 2006 07:43:40 AM
It's not quite cold enough to need this scarf and hat yet, but it will be soon. The scarf is really long and cuddly.
