1  Re: Le Slouch! in Knitting: Completed Projects by illhtac on: February 24, 2007 11:31:44 PM
I just finished my Le Slouch.  I did the seed stitch version and knit it flat because I hate DPNs using Debbie Bliss cashmerino aran which is now my new favorite yarn.  (So soft, so springy!)  It's a great pattern, too.

Is it awkward to wear?  That's my only concern.  But you're rocking it!


Thanks!  It's not awkward at all to wear.  Well, except for the questions from people- 'What are you wearing?', 'Cute sweater!  Is that a sweater?' and 'Where did you get that?  I want one!'  Just to prove it, here's an action shot:

Now that I look at it, I guess it could also be awkward if you mind people being able to see your armpits.  I don't.  But you might.   Tongue

Did you knit thumb holes into the end of the sleeves?

Nope, they're just really long.  You can't tell from the pictures, but there's extra wide ribbing on the sleeves too, to match the turtleneck.  I made them really long to contrast with the shortness of the body.

This is one of my favorite knits of all time. I call it cozysexycool, because that's what it is. And also, because I like TLC. Don't go chasing waterfalls... Ah, middle school. Those were the days. Anyway. I was going for a nice chunky turtleneck sweater, but with sex appeal.  Because hiding in huge sweaters all winter gets dull, but shivering in your cute little top is even worse. So here is my answer. True, I haven't found an answer to world hunger, but for the answer to the winter blahs, I'm your girl.

4  V ballet tee in Knitting: Completed Projects by illhtac on: February 03, 2007 10:49:19 PM
I made this for my sister for her birthday in July based on a pattern that someone posted on here, but I can't find the original post, so if anyone knows who it was that originally did this I would love to know.  It's sort of based on Teva Durham's deep v-neck sweater vest and ballet tee.  I asked her for pictures when I first gave it to her, but it took going to London and having the opprotunity to pose in Covent Garden for her to finally send me pictures.

There's another pic and some more details on my blog:

5  last minute armwarmers in Knitting: Completed Projects by illhtac on: January 31, 2007 09:03:00 PM
I knitted these up when I realized that the deadline was fast approaching.  Just wove in the ends and snapped some quick pictures.  Whew.

The detail is more visible in this shot, but it's not very good in any of them, black yarn is tricky to photograph.

another 'action shot' with some side detail:

These were knit up in Cascade 220 on size 10 needles.

6  Re: my ubernatural w/long sleeves - first sweater! in Knitting: Completed Projects by illhtac on: November 19, 2005 02:18:17 AM
I finished my ubernatural a few days ago.  It's the first sweater I've ever made that's recognizable as a sweater, so I'm pretty excited about it.  I still need to weave in the ends and I haven't been shopping for buttons yet, but hopefully I'll get some today.  I made it out of some kind of acrylic yarn because I'm an american studying in London for the semester and the exchange rate is crap so I couldn't afford anything nicer.  It still came out ok.
I knit it on US 11 circs for the top and US 8 for the bottom and increased the number of stitches I cast on.  I also made the sleeves long and increased for the ribbing because the first time I did it without increasing and I couldn't breathe with the bottom closed.  I bound off using a US 11 needle which made it nice and stretchy.

I call her Uberpink:

the neck turned out super wide, but I think I like it like that:

and the back:
