12  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Unventing cables...painfully detailed how-to on: November 08, 2005 03:01:29 PM
Head on over to my silly little blog for a painfully, ridiculously detailed tutorial on understanding cables and writing charts for them, focusing on how to duplicate a cable that catches your eye.  http://www.eunnyjang.com/knit/2005/11/technickety_how_to_unvent_a_si.html

Thoughts?  I'm thinking about writing and archiving a series of stuff like this until I have a mini library going.  Suggestions/criticisms?

13  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Fir Cone Shawl on: November 06, 2005 09:23:12 PM
Not really my cup of tea, but it's for a Christmas present, so I the "ehhhhh" I feel about the FO isn't as bad.

Out of Cheryl Oberle's book Folk Shawls, with Merino Oro on 3.00mm needles.

It's freaking huge!  I subbed cobweb weight yarn and teeny needles for the sport weight yarn and US7 needles in the pattern to get it to be a little smaller and lighter, but it's enormous even so.  Maybe the giftee can wear it as a bathrobe, or use it as a car cover, or maybe go parasailing with it.  Sheesh.
14  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Norwegian Stockings! on: October 23, 2005 04:38:37 PM

Dalegarn Baby Ull on 2.75mm DPNs.  Pattern from Nancy Bush's Folk Socks - took just about a weekend.  Nice break from my other "big" projects; a nice, fun almost instant-gratification knit.
15  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Rowan Butterfly (long overdue) on: October 18, 2005 09:00:37 AM
I finished this months ago with the girls over at the craftster KAL, but I completely forgot to put pictures up.  So here they are:

4 ounces of Jaggerspun Zephyr (a 50/50 Merino/Tussah silk blend in a 2/18 laceweight) on 4.5mm (US7) bamboo circulars, filed down to weapon sharpness.

Please don't mind the weird pose...I stacked a coffee mug on a pile of books on my alarm clock on my nightstand to get the camera at the proper height.

Kimono Shawl from Cheryl Oberle's most excellent book Folk Shawls

Christmas gift tally - 1 down, 3243948 to go.

This was done with about 2/3 of a 1600yd (100g) hank of Ornaghi Filati Merino Oro, a 100% wool laceweight.  It's an extremely delicate yarn - it broke when it snagged on a rough fingertip once or twice.  I was so scared it would spring a leak when blocked that I just smoothed it out rather than pinned aggressively. 

I think this shawl would look good in a heavier yarn, too (more like a solid fabric patterned with openwork, than a cobwebby, gossamer-type lace pattern) like a fingering alpaca or silk.

Took about 10 days on #5 needles for finished dimensions of about 25"x62" (I did 20 repeats rather than the prescribed 25).  All in all, a very quick, cheap ($16.00) project with lots of bang for the k2tog buck.

**It looks like it, but I'm totally not naked under there!  I have a beige camisole on!**

20  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / finger cuffs (not THAT kind) with description/pattern on: August 26, 2005 04:20:34 PM
Get your minds out of the gutter Grin

I do a lot of cabling.  My fingers get all torn up:

However, there's a solution for every problem:

I did this with dk cotton on 3.5mm needles, since that's what I had just a weensy little amount of (it only took like a yard), in a simple eyelet pattern I made up as I went along, but wouldn't this be great in, say, fair isle cashmere?

Just cast on an even number or stitches (I did 12); divide evenly onto 3 or 4 double points; work two or three rows of k1, p1 rib; work in stockinette or in whatever pattern you like until it's as long as you want (I did 10 rows); work another couple rounds of ribbing; bind off.  Ten minutes, tops.
