1  Re: 1st sweater: James Coviello Jacket from Vogue Knitting Holiday 2005 (NEW PIC in Knitting: Completed Projects by Jemjerika on: October 31, 2007 07:30:25 PM
I was inspired to try this - I've been eyeing it up since the mag came out two years ago.

I made a few small modifications, and I think I will wear it - at
least to a few special occasions. But the damn thing weighs almost as much as I do.

2  Re: Clapotis from Knitty in Knitalongs by Jemjerika on: September 04, 2007 06:40:08 AM

My second Clapotis - a mini-sized one in Sea Silk on US size 6. Shiny, drapey, smelly (in a good way.) About 1/3 of the way there.

3  Sunspots Lace Scarf in Hot! Pink! in Knitting: Completed Projects by Jemjerika on: September 02, 2007 02:40:12 PM

I bought this precious skein of Malabrigo laceweight merino in New York and didn't want a yard of it to go to waste. And I've always wanted to try the Sunspots lace pattern from Barbara Walker's Third Treasury (pg. 151-153.) Match made in heaven.

For anyone interested in trying it, I cast on 63 stitches (5 pattern multiples) and did 15 repeats of the 24-row pattern, then continued the first six rows of the 16th repeat and cast off there. To make the tassels, I wrapped yarn width-wise around the Treasury book 20 times, making six tassels for each end of the scarf. I had just enough yarn left over to play Cat's Cradle. Edited to add: on US size 4 needles.

This is actually my second go at these - I ran out of yarn on my first set and am waiting for more to arrive. But I loved the pattern so much I decided to go ahead and make a second pair in Sweet Georgia sock yarn in Saffron with toes and heels in Blue Steel. Doing the toe and heel in an alternate colour allowed me to get two socks from just two skeins. I also did them from the toe up to make sure I didn't run out of yarn again. I used the Middle East cast on and worked five inches above the ankle before the first increase, then continued according to the pattern. Instead of the lace edging, I used a sewn bind-off then added crochet detailing.

I just finished mine and am curled up in it right now! I loved this project - it took me a few months and I would pick it up and put it down, but I was always happy to get back to it.

Ooh, ohh, I got one.

The skein:

It's Fleece Artist Merino

The half-completed mitten:

It's uneven and lumpy but I'm very pround regardless.

7  First Usable Skein in Spinning: Completed Projects by Jemjerika on: October 17, 2006 01:53:47 PM
It took an entire evening of dedication but I finally managed a 120 yrd skein of usable 2 ply merino from two Fleece Artist slivers.

As soon as it's dry I'm taking it over to the swatch thread - I can't wait to use it.

8  Gwennabe tank in Knitting: Completed Projects by Jemjerika on: August 30, 2006 11:22:21 AM
I made this:

Based on this:

It's a cashmere tank from Gwen Stefani's line, L.A.M.B. And now it is mine, all mine.

I finished mine about a month ago, but had to make some adjustments (see red circle where I had to cut and sew a new seam.)

I used Classic CashCotton, and switched the berry stitch for a seed stitch. More details on my blog: http://www.knittingfog.blogspot.com

All in all, a nightmare to knit in cotton, but I've already worn it to work twice.

10  Re: Looking for Pattern w/ Wraps & Drops in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by Jemjerika on: June 01, 2006 01:30:25 PM

The scarf on the left is Vogue Knitting Spring 2005, Blue Sky Alpacas.

And VK Winter 2002 had this incredible sweater by James Coviello with wrapped/dropped cables that will test your dexterity. I remember that sweater fondly - it was the first I ever made. Ambitious but so satisfying.
