21  Learning fair isle... with Swell hat from Summer Knitty in Knitting: Completed Projects by Keletubbie on: July 24, 2006 10:37:49 AM

I'll be honest with you guys.... it didn't go perfectly the first time. I swatched with Debbie Bliss cotton angora and got gauge first time - I was chuffed. However, I over e stimated the vertical stretch in the yarn and ended up with a very shallow hat...


So I back-tracked, undid the crown decreases and redid them, adding 8 straight rows before they began. And voila, it now fits nicely.

I don't think my fair isle was too shabby for a first attempt and now I am hooked!

More info on my blog, in the sig as always.

22  My first sweater - Rogue by Girl From Auntie - impractical for mid-summer! in Knitting: Completed Projects by Keletubbie on: July 24, 2006 03:21:01 AM

Made from Rowanspun Aran, taking just over 2 months with some little projects inbetween. It was my first sweater, my first serious cable project and my first time reading charts. I swore. A lot.

There's a hella load more details on my blog:

I am officially in love with the Cabled Footies pattern. Infact, it has reignited my love of sock knitting. This one was made from some leftover Rowanspun Aran from another project and took only a couple of hours in total.

It will be getting a partner as soon as I buy a new cable needle - I have lost several over the past few days!

24  Saturday Market Bag from Magknits - a fantastic vacation knit! in Knitting: Completed Projects by Keletubbie on: June 29, 2006 04:14:45 PM

It's the gorgeous Saturday Market bag from this month's Magknits! I completed it on vacation in Jamaica and love it to bits.

Here's the details:

Pattern: Saturday Market Bag by Jodie Dannenberg

Yarn: Paton's 100% Cotton DK in Tomato, just under one ball

Needles: Denise Interchangeables, 10mm for body, 6mm for garter stitch top and 4mm for the straps

Time taken: Not long when actually knitting, could have been completed in about 2 hours if not for screaming babies and turbulence!

Finished dimensions: Difficult to truly gauge! It's easier to think of it in terms of capacity - I managed a cantaloupe melon, 6 bananas, a bag of pears and a couple of tins with room to spare.

There's the full she-bang on it at my blog, including a modelling pic from my lovely wee brother:

Hee's my body, with pocket attached. This is a mighty speedy knit at the moment - I am thinking of taking it to the park this afternoon as I am sure I could polish it off!

Yup, I'm still going! I am about 20 rows into the body now with a complete pocket. And both sleeves are done:

You find your sleeping boyfriend under your freshly knitted sleeves that stopped you coming to bed until they were finished...

And it seems normal  Grin

A little skein of Jaegar Matchmaker DK that I dyed with Kool Aid for a recent swap. I blurred the pic a little so my intended recipient cannot read the label - crafty!
