1  Finished Hipest in Hempest (knitty's hip in hemp) in Knitting: Completed Projects by elisha on: July 04, 2007 09:20:37 AM
I am so excited. I finished what I think is my favorite pattern/item ever (and that's saying a lot since I've been knitting obsessively for about 5 years).
here is my lovely daughter equally excited.


and with her brother:

thanks to Gudrun and Knitty for this amazing pattern. By the way, I used the Hempathy (the suggested yarn) and knitted the size 6. I made it longer, though, following the chart for size 10.

 i love the fall color/brown boot idea...i think that will look great with this pattern. when i finish the one for my daughter, maybe i will start a skirt for me.
here she is today:

 on the right by the needle, you can see the 'lacy' scalloped part that my daughter LOVES.

i love it! (nice lawn)
i think the colors are beautiful, and your knitting looks perfect!
funny you should mention the waistband because i puzzled over this for about 15 minutes...it didn't seem at all clear to me from the pattern which side should face out. it sounded a bit more like the purl side would be out, because why else would we be asked to purl those first 10 rows? well, in the end i decided that i would simply choose, and i chose purl out...wait, i'll go snap my progress...

i just started the first c row...it is really quick because in the place of making a stitch is a yarn over...
i am wondering, though, if i am half finished...because the skirt doesn't seem very long...but i guess i could read ahead to figure this out.

I have a progress photo.
it's moving along, thanks to an emergency tutoring session with optimism.

It's difficult to see the pattern emerging...so far I don't really see the waves at all. Just a bit of bunching where I hope/assume the waves will drop down.
I loved the elastic joining part, knowing that there will be no sewing and seaming in the end.
And the yarn is really nice to work with.

6  Knitty's Hip in Hemp in Knitalongs by elisha on: June 19, 2007 05:24:25 PM
How cute is this?


My sister-in-law and I are both knitting this skirt for our 6 year old daughters (the creator of the pattern has more sizes listed on her blog).

I bought the yarn suggested for the pattern in a slightly different color way. It is so beautiful, I have never knitted with hemp, and I am trying to avoid animal fibers...
here it is!

want to join us?

7  Finished Child's Placket-neck pullover in Knitting: Completed Projects by elisha on: June 19, 2007 10:33:51 AM
I finally made this sweater from Last Minute Knitted Gifts.  It was a really fun and quick knit that I made for a friend's first baby girl. I made the 3-6 month size with minor modifications using Debbie Bliss Baby Alpaca Silk...yum!

it is soft and delicious...

i made the Denim Drawstring Pants for my teeny tot a while ago, but she is still wearing them...
they are made in silk that i had left over from a poncho.

i saw that i would run out of the blue, so i added a gray section!
they are really soft and durable.
she is wearing a hat that i made years ago for my other daughter.  Cheesy

I finally finished!
it has taken me a couple of weeks to post pictures because i haven't had the time to get anyone to take some good ones...so here i am in my mirror!

my comments:
i made the size small in a 70% silk/30% cotton yarn

first of all, i can't say i loved making this pattern. i think this is mainly my fault..being so cheap i spent $25 on a huge cone of yarn that is lovely. BUT the only way i found to add beads was to knot them individually onto a thread and carry it along (only on the purl ridges). this was ridiculously time-consuming. ALSO, i saw that i was running low on yarn as i was knitting down the first arm, so i stopped with that arm, began on the second and had to be aware to make the arms the same length, so they are now 3/4 sleeves. which i like, but i just love the look of the long-sleeved sweater.
also, mine came out more loose. which, again, i like, but it's not exacly as...sexy...as the original!
i have a thought to wash it (is this a really bad idea? Undecided) hoping that it might felt a little and tighten up...any thoughts?
any comments are welcome...thanks!

ok, i am done with the body!  Grin
by the way, dawnya00, i also considered leaving out the purl ridges, and i didn't...so here is what the body looks like on me with them...
so far I am pleased with how it is coming out. i am making the small, and i am surprised that it is coming out a little big...which i guess is good considering i also prefer the 'look' of the long-sleeved version:

sorry for the onslaught of pictures! (just imagine what it will be like when i finish it!)
