My latest yarn musings. I just had to knit these colors...

4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / I Can't stop making these.... on: January 14, 2008 03:10:28 AM
Once I began, it became a bit addictive. I think it's because feather and fan stitch does different things with different yarns which is very exciting to me.

5  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Free Range Kelpy Wrap on: September 07, 2007 02:58:31 AM

Hi, everybody. Here's something to try if you're feeling free-range adventurous:

These wraps are so simple to make: just one long rectangle knit on gigantico needles. If you'd like to make one like it, track down a hank of Great Adriondack's Surprise in 'Kenya' and then go a-gathering for like shades that pick up it's hand-dyed mix of mysterious tones. There's a rich undergrowth purple happening there, lots of tealy-greens and every other shade of green under the trees from grass to emerald.

Here's the recipe:

With size 9mm/US13 needles, cast on 100 stitches with your lushest, greeniest yarn (I used La Lana's Bombyx hand-dyed silk) and work 10 rows seed (k1,p2)
Change yarns to GA Surprise and work two-wrap drop stitch
Change yarns to turquoise and work another 10 rows seed
Change back to green and work 4 rows garter
Continue working in blocks of seed, garter and drop stitch alternating yarns that pick up the colors in the Surprise (or any variegated or hand-dyed yarn you choose) until you reach the end. When do you know when the end comes to meet you? When you think it's long enough. Really.

Though I've used tres expensive yarns, this design will work with any yarn, any weight, honest!


6  KNITTING / Knitalongs / The Scarf Lace on: March 28, 2007 04:23:18 AM

This is what I'm calling it anyway: half necklace, half scarf. The picture shows the neckpanel and the two ends wrap around the back of the neck to hang down either side. I was thinking of starting a knitalong with one of these but I'm still fishing for interest.

7  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Discussion and Questions / Stringers unite! on: March 04, 2007 04:00:24 AM

I consider myself a humbe stringer (ie: not one to yet plunge into art silver, wirework or other feats of beading marvel) but I love it. How many of like-minded artistes are on this list?

8  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Weird and wonderful maybe? Or how to knit a bubble without bursting it.... on: February 12, 2007 10:21:36 AM
I'm the biggest kid I know (and that includes the neighbours aged 9-12). I was knitting along with my free range knitalong and decided to go way out and start short-rowing surface designs. I came up with this very strange but strangely effective bubble, much like a bobble but far more, er, bubbly. See what you think at: *link removed*
9  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Free Range Knitalong -- no pattern required on: January 05, 2007 01:13:07 PM

Start date: January 15th

Join me in a free range knitalong where we'll explore color combinations, intarsia and surface embroidery all in one 'art to wear' project where you get to explore your fiber creativity in a virtual workshop. No pattern required.
10  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Flashy knitting on: December 14, 2006 02:16:44 PM

I'm making on of these for myself (one week to do it in) and planning to go intensely glittery with pearls and crystals along with the seed beads. For one brief moment of insanity I even considered going high holliday ho-ho-ho in red and sewing battery-operated flashers onto the i-cord ends. Luckily, rational thought prevailed.
