1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Finished Hipest in Hempest (knitty's hip in hemp) 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.
2  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?
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Finished Child's Placket-neck pullover 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...
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Sweater from Weekend Knitting on: December 12, 2005 07:12:32 AM
I finished the baby sweater in a cotton/linen yarn - the pattern calls for hemp. it was a really fun knit, and the directions were clear.
here is my sweetie modeling it.

she likes it!
a a closer picture to show the wood buttons i found for it:
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / another pinwheel blanket - with baby! on: October 02, 2005 05:55:31 PM
recently someone posted pictures and a link to the pattern for this pinwheel baby blanket...so i got started and finished just in time for my little girl to snuggle up in it (she is 2 weeks old)! it was very easy, and looks more complicated so i get a lot of compliments. i used a cotton variegated yarn (gender neutral colors) and made a crochet border...she loves it.
here's most of it:

here's how cuddly it (she) is:

here's a close-up of (her) the border...
6  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Purim Costumes on: March 31, 2005 04:20:47 AM
here are my homemade purim costumes for my kiddies...my daughter wore the Pooh costume for a whole day...and my son was Tigger for about an hour.   Cheesy
here's Pooh:

close up (with make-up):

and Tigger:

close up:

for the Pooh, i used a shirt and pants pattern i had made previously for my daughter. for the Tigger, I really just made it up as i went along, using a pair of pajamas as a model. the hats were the first i have ever made, and I completely winged it  Smiley
7  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Star of David pattern where in Jerusalem on: February 02, 2005 06:39:22 AM
I am in Jeruselum and need to find a pattern for a six pointed star. I am thinking of using applique to get around the problem,  but haven't done much of this before.  I usually strip quilt, but have not been able to figure out a clever way around all the odd angles.  I could use a pattern or the name of a shop in Jerusalem where I could buy a book with a pattern in it.  In fact, for future use, it would probably be good to get a book with Jewish patterns. My daughter would love it for her baby. Don't have much time before the baby is born and I go back home. ANy help will be appreciated. Thanks.

8  KNITTING / Knitalongs / ballet-wrap top from Rebecca 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)
9  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / finally finished knitty's kyoto 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!
10  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / manly hat (now with manly sweater!) 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!
