51  Re: Wardrobe Revamp Craftalong in Craftalongs by miyoko79 on: September 29, 2005 10:24:57 PM
Ok, it's a REALLY easy project, but I'm a beginner!  Here's the first attempt:


Halfway done:

As you can see, drawing straight lines for your armholes doesn't really work!  After that I got out the styling curve that I bought on sale for $2 the other day, but I made a mistake cutting and had to chalk that one up to experience.

Second try:

I used the curve to draw the armholes and neckline, and took in the sides.  I was much happier with the result!

A picture of it on:

Much easier the second time around!  Now my husband will have to keep me from stealing his shirts to restyle, tee hee!

I adapted this from a REALLY frilly pattern - I meant to do the whole thing, but got really sick of all those roses while I was doing the center part Smiley  It originally was supposed to have an obnoxious rose border all the way around, so that had to go.  And it had a cheesy quote at the top, that had to go too.  So here's what's left!

53  My first scarf AND first post! *Knifty Knitter finishing tutorial added* in Knitting: Completed Projects by miyoko79 on: September 12, 2005 06:55:43 AM
Ok, it's nothing special, but I'm proud of it.  Smiley  I made it on a Knifty Knitter, using two skeins of Lion Brand Homespun in Prairie.  It came out quite a bit bigger than I expected, but I like it!

If anyone's interested, let me know and I'll post my method for getting the scarf off of the Knifty Knitter without using a crochet hook.

Sorry, looking a bit frazzled here!

Close-up so you can see the detail (or lack thereof!)

To get your scarf off of the loom, find the first peg you would be pulling off if you were doing another row, and call it peg 1.  The peg across from it is then peg 2, the peg above it is peg 3, and so on...

35    36
33    34
3     4
1     2

Take the loop on peg 2, and flip it over onto peg 1.  Pull the bottom loop on peg 1 over, then flip the remaining loop back over onto peg 2.

Take the loop on peg 3, and flip it over onto peg 2.  Pull the bottom loop on peg 2 over, then flip the remaining loop back over onto peg 3.

Repeat until you get to one last loop on peg 36 (this will be the one with a tail).  Pull the last loop off, pull the tail through it and tighten.  Voila!

This basically just mimics the crocheting on the pegs.  It's more work, but saves you from carrying an extra tool around.  If you change your mind and prefer to do the crocheting, though, they're selling the correct size crochet hook in the Dollar Spot at Target for - yep, you guessed it - a dollar!  You get a smaller hook as well.
