Isabel, you really inspired me to actually knit this - I'd been eyeing it for ages - I love your version, and I love your contrasting embroidery.

I have no idea why mine is so long - I think it's the weight of the yarn pulling it down. I think that's why the neck is so weird too, why it sits so wide. It's one thing to design a sweater like this in theory, but in actual fact the thing weighs as much as a baby - it kind of distorts the fit i think.

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.

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.

That is so awesome, Just A Girl  - now I want to try it with your mods.

I'll have to have a look at the short rows section of this pattern and see if I can fix it - a few people have had trouble. Writing a pattern yourself really makes you appreciate the pros who do this for the big mags. It seems so simple until you try to explain what you're up to.

Awesome job!

5  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Sunspots Lace Scarf in Hot! Pink! 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.

You know, I hadn't even thought about the itch factor - my blanket doesn't bug me at all. I wet blocked all my squares and that softens them up a lot. Also, it's such a winter blanket, right - I mean, it's heavy. You're not likely to curl up in it without jeans and a sweater on. But if you are sensitive to itchy wool, it might be worth lining - but yeah - hasn't bothered me once.

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.

Bust 34 inches around - waist 28 inches. Those are my measurements. The top fits with some ease - hence the belt thingy to cinch the waist.

It's an easy knit - and I wear mine all the time.

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.
