771  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: Snowflake Illusion Scarf *****see page 11***** on: November 16, 2005 02:40:57 PM
I think she's like it. It got an, 'I'll be darned' out of my dad, who had given me the impression that knitting was more effort than it was worth. It is pretty impressive to look at and most people have not seen illusion knitting before.

I like the one I'm making with sparkly wool-ease even better. I think I'm going to add fun fur fringe to this one since it's for my niece. I'll post a picture again when that one is done.

Edit: Here are the photos of the recently completed wool-ease/fun fur scarf. I crocheted the fun fur on as a trim, but since I don't really know how to do this, it didn't turn out quite as planned. Any suggestions how to habndle a fun-fur trim like this would be appreciated for future reference!

I was going to ask you if it was done in DB aran tweed and then I looked at your blog. This is enough to inspire me to buy some of this yarn on sale at elann.com. You did a beautiful job on this jacket. And belts with jackets are evil in my book, so don't worry about it. It wouldn't look good on most people and the jacket is super-cute without it.

There's a really cool scarf pattern on a fellow crafster member's site. Just click on herringbone scarf: http://www.pretendingsanity.com/knitting.html

P.S. Another suggestion would be to buy a book that has a lot of stitch patterns (like Barbara G. Walker's first treasury or Vogue Knitting: The Ultimate Knitting Book.  You could save money by renting them from your public library.

v     It's trendy so I think it's one of those things that people would wear now and think it looks good. In 5 years though... I think it will make someone a nice Christmas present.

It's very fun. After you put it on are you able to eat nails?

guessica--I took a look at your blog and I'm making a couple of things for Christmas gifts that you have already made: the boyfriend scarf from LMKG and now the Irish HIking Scarf. I chose a light blue (Wool of the Andes from Knitpicks) for the Irish Hiking scarf too, so I was happy to have a look at how yours turned out.

Question: can you get the school products cashmere anywhere on line, or is it only available in the store?
778  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Ballet wrap-over style top on: November 13, 2005 06:20:24 AM
the summer rebecca knitting magazine (# 29, I think ) had a really beautiful pattern for a wrap cropped cardigan that could easily be modified.  (longer length, etc.) I know there were a lot of Knit-A-Longs for it and you could probably get good advice from those who finished it (mine went on the back burner until warmer weather comes around again...)
i cant remember the name of the sweater, but I can search and figure it out if you are interested.

I think they recycled that wrap in the Family Circle Easy Knitting Fall 2005 issue too.

I definitely needed 2 skeins of panache for a pair, but I had plenty left over. I made a ski band with the left over yarn. You could buy 3 skeins and make 2 pairs of mittens in the same color. The yardage needed is on the pattern that Duckie posted. All of mine were child's large mittens except for the rosy-purple ones. We all have pretty small hands and the Women size is quite big on me.

How about this pattern for dpn: http://knitting.about.com/library/blmittens.htm

You can also try the Family Circle Easy Knitting Fall edition. They had a great dpn pattern, but I tried it and had some probs so switched to this one: http://www.fceasyknitting.com/  Maybe you could find it at your local library since it's not in shops anymore.
