those are all great hats! i wish i had looked at this thread more closely before i started making one for my daughter. i love it and she loves it, but it is too short!  Embarrassed
it doesn't cover her little ears!
here is a picture anyway, and mabe later i'll try to get another one of her modeling it. (it matches the mittens i made for her from weekend knitting!...she loves purple)

i loved making it also, and i am now a cable addict...i am working on a sweater vest for my son.

22  ballet-wrap top from Rebecca in Knitalongs by elisha on: December 26, 2004 01:30:23 PM
hi there,
i remember that a little a while ago people were talking about this type of top:


i love it! and i finally got lots of mohair yarn to make it...
anyone want to try it with me?
(i've gotten a coupla inches into it)

23  finally finished knitty's kyoto in Knitting: Completed Projects by elisha on: December 23, 2004 05:46:19 AM
phew! lots of tiny stitches and double seed stitch! and i seemed to have lost our other thread (a knit-along in the future projects section)
so here is my kyoto - the pattern is free at this link: http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEwinter03/PATTkyoto.html. i just finished it last night. i used a beautiful cotton and made the size medium. i followed the instructions exactly (except that i knitted the sleeves in the round and made the 'sash' a little longer)

and here is a detail of the neck and arm:

this was a great project and i think came out really nicely!

i want to revive this thread because i just got the book and i'm a huge fan. the patterns are so classic and beautiful.
i made the mittens for my daughter (3 1/2 years old)...i made the kids' medium and used 2 strands of a worsted weight merino wool. i love them and found the intructions clear and...wordy!
here they are:

and a close-up:

i finally got my book - it is so beautiful - i would make everything in it if i had had a million dollars and no work or kids...i live out of the states (as you can probably tell from the times of my posts) and had to wait till someone was coming for a visit to bring it for me! (i also got weekend knitting which i love!)
but just like pretendingsanity, i also made the ribbed or 'men's' wrist warmers...
i made them a little longer so they are more like arm warmers.
by the way, illana, your sweater is amazing! i'm so impressed. it looks great on you.
here's one arm being warmed while it wrestles the DPNs to make the other:

and in this one you can see the extended length:

i made them in a really soft merino wool - but i'll admit that i think the color choice was not such a good one. they are SLIGHTLY flesh-toned and end up looking funny...but i am thinking that i will get used to it...
thanks again, gertie, for the book recommendation!

26  manly hat (now with manly sweater!) in Knitting: Completed Projects by elisha on: December 03, 2004 01:59:52 AM
i finally made a hat that my husband will wear - my first attempt ended up looking  part tam/part floppy/and completely not him (even with his devotion to bob marley).
it is from a pattern from a rowan big print book and gorgeous soft bulky wool i got on sale a while ago...

ok, i finally just decided to post pictures of the sweater i made for my husband, but with me wearing it...
it is a top-down raglan that was so easy to make - i used this beautiful yarn called ecological wool from peru...(the same wool i used to make a poncho for me - we don't wear them at the same time  Wink)
here is a link that has the pattern leaflet http://www.paradisefibers.com/patterns/norling.asp
the pattern i used was #60...

here is the top:

and here is the bottom:

this is the first time i've put it on...and i will say it is soo cozy!

thanks, rhythmgrl...i acutally forgot that the sleeves were not tapered (one of the things i love about the pattern)...so knitting in the round should be easier than i feared.  Wink

oh, the word in hebrew for blossom is nitzan...rhyming with pizza (without the last 'a') and ending like 'ahn'.
here she is in a hat and scarf i made for her last year - i know, shameless bragging, but she is a blossom, don't you think?

is your hebrew name shir or shira or something else?

rhythmgrl...yours looks so good with the stripes that i now wish i had added some...oh well...and you have been a serious knitting star getting 8.5 inches of that sash done so quickly! (maybe you don't have 2 little kids like i do!)

here is what i have so far of the back:

it's not so easy to see the color - it is really a dusty rose.

and here it is next to the sash:

we'll see. i'm beginning to get a little nervous about the size, because my stockinette stitch is coming out a little tighter than the gauge is supposed to be, so i might end up with a skin-tight version!

here is a pic of what i have so far...yes, the double seed stitch is a little wierd, but i can see that it will shape up nicely...

by the way, i taught myself dreamweaver...and managed okay...i made a website for my husband who is a painter, and he is very picky!  Cheesy

thanks, rhythmgrl,
it was just the yarn i had around, but i think it turned out great...
that is a great price on yarn - $40...good shopping!
ok, i look forward to knitting with you guys, and don't worry, i think we'll all go pretty slowly in the beginning!

wow, RenaissanceGrrl, yours is great! it looks perfect - fits hips and shoulders...well done!

i just tied on the last of the fringe...and here it is!

i also like it this way:

and the skirt:

phew! i really thought it wasn't going to fit. i made the smallest size. i am actually going to give it to my sister-in-law for her birthday (if i can have the self-control to give it up, because i really love it) i'm crazy about the noro stripes and feel also!

anyway, booglass, it toook me a couple of weeks, but i was working on other things as well...
