Row 1: Knit
Row 2: edge st, *k1b, p1,* edge st

One side definitely looks right, but the other side is still a little wonky...but now, I have pics!!

Side that seems right to me:

Side that looks funny:

And I don't know which one is suppossed to be the right side for my pattern....

12  "Hibiscus" Lacy Pullover *NOW WITH PATTERN LINK!!* in Knitting: Completed Projects by CraftyGal13 on: July 21, 2007 05:57:55 PM
EDIT: The pattern is now on my blog! Smiley

My first completely original design is done!  The 100% bamboo yarn was a dream to work with, and I love how it drapes!  I knit up a storm on the porch at the beach and finished in less than a week!  I had a few problems with sizing, like making the top way too short and having to pick up stitches and extend it...but I'm overall incredibly pleased with how it all came out, especially for my first design!  Enjoy Smiley

13  HELP: can you tell me the weight of this yarn??? in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by CraftyGal13 on: July 09, 2007 11:05:08 AM
I just got 560 yards of Bamboo yarn I bought on ebay in the mail, but there is no weight listed.  It looks to me like a fingering or DK weight, but I am by no means a yarn expert!  The gauge is 5 sts & 8 rows =1 inch US 6.  I took a picture too, if it helps:

And part two: Is 560 yards enough to knit a top?  That was my original intention, but I don't want to get into the project without making sure I have enough yarn (I'm writing my own pattern...)

14  Jiffy Tube Top and Tie-Front Shrug in Knitting: Completed Projects by CraftyGal13 on: July 04, 2007 01:07:13 PM
I've been keeping myself busy over the summer with some knitting Smiley

First, the Jiffy Tube Top in a Jiff.  I modified it and used 10 1/2 needles, less stitches, and less repeats of the cable so it wouldn't be really long due to the larger needles.  I'm overall really pleased, the only problem is that the top bind off edge is awfully tight.  I might add straps too...

I also couldn't resist buying some beautiful variegated Patons Rumor yarn, so I knit up a quick shrug with it.  I was proud of myself for picking up stitches and making it tie-front!

Thanks so much!  LilMissPink, I really liked your idea about the long sleeve shirt--so much that I ran and put one on to see how it looked!  I actually had knitted it for 3/4 sleeves, but I stretched them out and they worked as long sleeves!  So I can sort of re-block it each time to choose 3/4 or long sleeves.  I took more pictures of it this way, and I made myself presentable enough to put my face in the pictures too Wink

16  Chocolate Covered Strawberries Shrug in Knitting: Completed Projects by CraftyGal13 on: March 30, 2007 12:30:19 PM
I just posted this in completed projects, but it applies for the challenge also!  I modified a lace scarf pattern (that looks like strawberries Smiley) to make this shrug.

I used less than one skein of Lion Brand Wool-Ease, which Joann's lists as $2.99 retail here: http://www.joann.com/catalog.jhtml?CATID=82241&PRODID=87603&source=search

Total cost: < $3

Flat, without straps

Yay for a real project!  My nieghbors didn't believe I made it! The 6 year old said she "didn't know teenagers could knit" Smiley
(PS: sorry about the big white spaces.  I'm still trying to figure out my photo software...)

Here's a few update pics since I won't be able to post for 2 weeks:

The asana, which I'm knitting without the open back detail (you can't see that in this pic):

My tank top on my needles (notice the cute heart shaped point protectors that I made on a whim  Smiley)
