31  Use What You Have Month in Knitalongs by loisgriffinwannabe on: April 03, 2006 07:30:21 AM
I am participating in this great idea of Simple Sparrow's:

There is also a Flickr group:


This is my first project so far:

This is the Sweet Mary Janes pattern by Erin Vaughn and I am using a dark grey chunky weight superwash 100% wool from Japan, from my stash. I am making these for my stepmother in law for her bday.  Smiley

Here is my second project:

Its a Clapotis for my sisters birthday out of Caron Simply Soft in "Bone", also from my stash of course, and US 8 (5mm) needles.   Cheesy

I would never have used this for the Clapotis if it wasn't for the fact that the whole point of UWYH is not to buy any craft supplies for the month, and it also coincided with losing half our monthly income (my husbands half)  Undecided  so it was the perfect time to try to finally use up that stash, and not spend anymore money until we are back on our feet again!  Smiley

I must say I am loving the Simply Soft for this project. I will definitely be using it for another Clap in the future. I works so well and is so soft, haha!

Anyone else in here doing this?

Please post your projects!

aka Boobholder/Minisweater:

I made this crocheted button cover for it:

It hasn't finished blocking, these pics were preblocking and I haven't sewn on the button yet..

Yup, these photos are embarrasingly premature.  Embarrassed  Roll Eyes  Tongue

More details on my blog.

34  Cabely Hoodie from Street Smart in Knitalongs by loisgriffinwannabe on: March 26, 2006 04:45:29 PM
Is anyone else currently knitting this? Want to knitalong with me?

Here is the link to the booklet and you can buy it online, and at most LYS's, and Lewiscraft I think...

Here are some places I found it online:

Knitting Warehouse
Yarn and Thread by Lisa
YarnFwd (scroll down a bit)

I am substituting Cascade 220 yarn for Classic Merino that the pattern suggests, and the color I am using is #9420 which is a dark teal color.

The booklet is quite reasonable (I spent $5 CDN) and there are so many great patterns in it, its a steal!

Hope to see someone else here soon  Cheesy

Helenmay, I made my Clapotis out of Lang Tosca-  55% Virgin Wool/45% Acrylic, and it was 3 sts = 1 inch, so I had to cut out a few repeats- and its still huge!  I used 8 skeins (800yds!) to make the size I had.

When I blocked it, it grew quite a bit. So I think yours will probably grow a bit too.

Hope that helps!

Now that my secret pal has my last pkg, I can post that I made this for her:

I made it in the round, using 4mm DPN and Red Heart yarn, and some scrap discloth cotton for the hood ties.... Its my own pattern. The only one I saw online was too expensive and I didn't really love it... So I made up my own.

Thanks for lookin'!

At last.... the skies above are blue....

After finishing this at 2am... here she is, blocking her lovely self:

I made a mistake early on (see third pic) and had to carry on doing garter stitch instead of stockinette between the dropped stitches. Please forgive and promise me salvation.  Kiss

Yes, its three pics, but goshdarnit, this took forever to knit, and I want praise dammit! Praise!

My aching fingers beseech you...

littleone1098, here is a pic I made on my pc:

I hope you really like this teacher, and I hope she is paying you for the yarn and effort + time this is going to take! I don't know of one pattern that encompasses all that the sweater entails, so I think you will have to make one up. I do have a few suggestions, and I hope they help:

1. You may be able to just do the Circular Shrug, making sure you don't add any inches for cap sleeves, and instead of mock rib, do a lace pattern (I am not sure which one that is, but I am looking!) and instead of a normal 2x2 rib on each end, do a lacy rib stitch, like on Huhwhat?'s shrug, then pick up stitches on the armholes once it is seamed together, and knit sleeves with the same lace pattern you used for the body for about 12", then  decrese the stitches by half and knit for 3" in the same lacy rib you used for the edging. Sew three covered buttons onto the ribbing for decoration.


2. You could use a combo of the patterns for the shrugs I listed below, or you could pm the knitters: Top Down Raglan Shrug, orange_angel about her Knitted bed jacket, or Huhwhat? about her Romantic Lace Sweater or if you can crochet, here is the closest one: Crocheted Bed Jacket

I have no idea how you would do the little belt closure, I don't know if its knitted because I can't see it well enough in the pic...

I hope that helps!

I'm thinking about trying to adapt this pattern into a normal sweater length pullover.  Has anyone tried that, or should I just look for other cute top-down raglan pullover patterns?

I did!

Also Auntie Amanda (AWynkoop) made hers into a pullover, I think... here is the link to her blog, its a few posts back!
