1  Re: Double knitting knitalong! in Knitalongs by ChloeZ on: April 14, 2007 05:40:53 PM
I finally finished my BF's scarf!!

and a scarf, that got me hooked on double knitting (that I finished in Jan.):

Double knitting takes forever and is kinda a pain, but I kinda liked it too. The results are so fun!

For more info I made my own topic:

3  Double Knit Scarfs!! (gasp - 5 photos) in Knitting: Completed Projects by ChloeZ on: April 14, 2007 05:30:57 PM
Well, the good news for me is that Spring here in Boston has been very chilly, so there is still time to wear these scarfs! For anyone who hasn't tried double knitting if you can knit and purl it's very very easy, plus it's a good intro to color work!

First I made myself this knit star scarf (pattern here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=112306.0)

The yarn is a pattons wool/acrylic blend:

sorry these are so huge! I'm not sure why. . .

I thought the scarf was kinda skinny, but double knitting is thick so it's nice not having too much around my neck.

And my lovely boyfriend was jealous of the scarf, so I made him one too. It's a modified argyle pattern I drafted (the first time I've done that) in charcoal and gray. He loves it and so do I! This is Pattons Canadia acrylic, a realy nice acrylic, I enjoyed knitting with it (we're vegan but he doesn't wear wool).

Isn't he the cutest?!

The cool thing about double knitting is that the sides are reversed in terms of the color pattern.

Both scarfs have minor mistakes in the color work and stitching, but, well most wouldn't notice them but me.

The only thing I don't like (and you can't see too well here) are that the edges have weird wrapping issues and are bumpy weird in some places, this makes them look "home made" which as the BF pointed out is a good thing. Also, in the second scarf the argyle skinny stripes are only one stitch thick and they sometimes didn't show up, I'm not sure if this because of the double knitting or if I was wrapping my yarn wrong. . .

Thanks to Craftster for showing me double knitting!!

Here are pictures from my fabulous package from Gerbilocity / San Francisco. I absolutely LOVE everything, it was a great way to end my yucky week!

Great stuff from Japan town -- great stickers, teeny tiny that have sparkles and cute animals

a great notebook that I have to take to work along with the cutest folder.

My favorite California treat -- red vines, why don't they sell these in Boston?! I got two packages but one is half devoured  Wink
And some yummy looking hello kitty candy.

Look at the cutest cutest hamster erasers.
Fun silly bear origami paper! Can't wait to use it.
And a goofy frog notepad.

How lucky am I? Thanks Ms. Gerbilocity  Kiss

6  Dino-Mite! in Needlework: Completed Projects by ChloeZ on: October 28, 2006 03:39:24 PM
I made this over the summer for a swap but thought I would share it now:

It's a dinosaur embroidered onto fleece onto a tank-top. Inspired some of the craftsters here!

I hear my partner liked it, but I haven't seen an action shot. I got the picture off the internet and traced it. A surprisingly quick and cheap project!

7  Rockin' Diner Apron (McCalls M3979) in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by ChloeZ on: October 28, 2006 03:34:32 PM
I made this a while back for the FOC 4 swap -- my partner was BambiKhantastic a tattoo artist who likes to wear aprons while working.

I've only made like 3 items of clothing and  never use patterns so this was SUPER EASY McCalls pattern number:M3979 (there are several cute retro patterns in the package)

I've also never used bias tape, which is very easy.

The fabric is totally awesome pink cherry blossoms with gold highlights.

A link to pictures of Bambi wearing her apron (scroll down a bit -- the images are for a slightly mature audience)

Here's me in the apron before I sent it away:

Here's her "name" embroidered onto the front panel (see the gold!):

I'm not sure how to reveal myself (my partner must have gotten swallowed up with work since I haven't really heard from her since she got the last package, I hope she likes it!), so here goes, I guess I will do it in standard format.

First I sent:

And then:

the subject of some awesomely risque photos:

I tried on the apron before I sent it, but with all my clothes on, hee hee

and the surprise (a bambi for bambi):

And, well, I spilled the beans-o but my partner was:

BambiKhan!!!! She's lots of fun and I hope she liked all my things!  Wink

Okay -- ready for the double whammy?

First I'm going to reveal who had moi and then I will reveal who I had - get ready!

First I received several wonderful packages:

But alas, no "store bought" items or "surprise"! Oh no!

The above was sent to me by the dissapeared HERTRIGGER - thank you thank you thank you!

Then, I got a great angel, who really was very sweet and sent me a fun mix-CD and:

(for details see the gallery!)

from Itesser who has never even swapped before, and here she is being a wonderful angel sending me a wonderful gift!

Thank you so so so much, you ROCK!

Let's all say a big hurray for angels!

Okay, so I have been totally remiss in posting pictures of the AMAZING and totally spoiling package that Sewknitting sent to me, so prepare yourself for pictures.

Here is the amazing amazing knitting tote bag (with tons and tons of pockets, and places for kneedles and zippered pouches and more) that she made for me, check out the crazy embroidery on both sides:

yes, the octopus is KNITTING with little teeny needles - whoa!


the inside of the bag:

stich holder, beautiful stitch markers, jelly fish earings, wonderful beaded octopus neclace, crazy abacus row counter

detail of the stitch markers:

wonderful needle roll inside and outside fabric:

there were also some great knitting patterns, some teal yarn, a beach magnet, great hand-made fridge magnets (ack -- forgot pictures) and a BEAUTIFUL knit cuff with real shells all over it, I love it but cannot take a picture of myself with it on and seeing it not being worn does not do it justice, so pictures of that are on their way.

So thank you thank you thank you

and everyone, let's

give it up for Sewknitter!
