here's a reversable red striped/red without hole on top (actual beanie style)

and here's one showing the beanie - but i don't like the holey look.

2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / need help finding sweater pattern on: September 17, 2007 11:25:26 PM
hi - i've been eyeing this sweater since the end of last year, but the designer has not posted the full instructions & i really wanted to knit it for this fall. i've even seen similar sweaters at Old Navy & Target - and i so want to knit my very own. she has the top part of the sweater posted...but i have no idea how to do the body (as in increases to get the right flare to it). does anyone know of a very similar pattern? TIA!


and here are all the posts related to Knit In Chunks

that is so pretty!  it looks similar to a cowl sleeveless i got from "the limited" a few years ago.  i really like the cap sleeves on it.  i looked up the book on amazon and saw mixed reviews - guess i'm going to make a trip to the bookstore to check it out.

btw, you do totally look like rosario dawson in that picture!

i used 6 skeins of Noro Silk Garden and I followed the pattern pretty much.  I know some other people say they us a partial of a 7th skein but I probably had about 4 inches left of my 6th skein when I finished.

you'll love how the striping on the silk garden turns out!

i'm on the last row of section 3 - it didn't occur to me until maybe 20 or 30 rows ago that i can spit splice my noro silk garden.   Shocked  so i have to weave in a couple places at the beginning of my clapotis.  oh well, now i know for the next clapotis.   Cheesy

10  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Survey: Continental vs. English on: April 16, 2006 10:44:31 AM
1.Where do you live? Southern California
2.What style do you prefer? Continental
3.Who taught you how to knit? (do you know their lineage?) my former boss who is South African taught me English style (my mom tried to teach me when i was a kid, but i didn't have the patience
4. Have you tried, successfully or not, to change styles throughout your knitting life? If yes, why?  i decided to try Continental since i was reading a lot of websites and books on learning to knit (i needed to reinforce the basics my boss taught me) and i just found that Continental seemed to flow better for me.  If it makes me knit any faster, it's not by much because i am a slow knitter.  i just like the motion of having the yarn in my left hand and using the right needle to pick up the yarn.  i didn't like English style where i felt like i had to drop the right needle from my hand to pick up the yarn with it.  i've heard of other people knitting really fast with the English style though.
