21  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Knitty's Hip in Hemp 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?

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!

i love your sweater...it looks amazing on you. what a beautiful color. i'm also happy to see a fit like that, cuz that is the direction mine is coming. It is so flattering.
I was almost finished with the first sleeve (long) when I began to notice a dwindling cone of yarn, so I started the second sleeve, and will see how far I get - mine might end up with 3/4 sleeves!

i think the fit look great (but then i'm the one with the loose-fitting yellow sweater!) it really doesn't look too baggy to me...that's my vote!

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!)

since you are knitting in the round...there really is no right to left as far as your work is concerned...also, her chart is symmetrical...so you can't lose!  ;)since she put the numbers on the right, i read it right to left. so for the first round you are knitting of the lace, knit all the way around, then for round 2, you'll start in that first box on the right next to the #2.
good luck!

juniper13, yes, it is the everett silk from WEBS. for some reason when i ordered it i thought it was 100% silk, then as i was knitting, i looked into the cone where there is a label that says 70% silk, 30% cotton. it is really nice and seems to be draping well for the pattern. i am about halfway into the waist detail
have you used this yarn before?
