41  Re: Clapotis from Knitty in Knitalongs by ijsblokje on: August 18, 2005 11:24:58 AM
My handpaintedyarn came in the mail while I was off galavanting in New Mexico.

I bought the lace weight.  Last night I made a swatch on US 5 needles and triple stranding the yarn.  I think it came out very nicely.  I'm sure I'll have to do more repeats to get the desired width, but that's ok as I have tons of this yarn.

I'm really excited to start this project.. especially as my friend recently mentioned something about wanting a knit scarf.  (I've planned on giving this to her for her birthday)

42  Super bulky cable scarf! in Knitting: Completed Projects by ijsblokje on: August 09, 2005 02:08:04 PM
A few months ago I went to the LYS and couldn't resist buying two skeins of Plymouth Yukon Print.  I wasn't really thinking about what I could make with it.. I just bought it.  Later I realized that you can't really make a whole lot with only 120 yards of super bulky yarn.  What to make?  I didn't want to make something boring like a scarf, but conceded in the end since there aren't a lot of options.  I found this pattern and decided to use it because it wasn't boring, but it was also easily remembered.  I'm also a sucker for cables.

and.. here's my finished product (unblocked):

Two skeins made it a really nice scarf length and because it's so bulky, it's really warm and squishy.  I'll just have to remember not to wear it with dark colored stuff because it sheds like a mutha.

35% mohair, 35% wool, 30% acyrlic in color #2004
It think the acrylic is what gives it its lovely sheen.
It's about 4.75 inches across.

I think you're boobholder looks really really cute, kinda Amalieish, even though it's not tight under the bust like the pattern.

It looks to me like the yarn you've used is thicker than the yarn others have used and that's created some gague (sp?) issues, ie. more stitches per inch.

Anyway, if it was up to me I'd leave it the way it is cause it looks great, esp over that dress.
Thank you.  I just tried it on again, and it does flare out in the back.
I think I'm going to frog several rows, decrease some in the back, connect it in the front and change it into some nice deep 2x2 ribbing.  This noro knits sweater inspired me:
Since my yarn is a bulky/chunky yarn, I think there must have been some guage problems.  This pattern seems to be all about experimenting, so let's hope I do well!  haha  I need to stop talking and start knitting.  Wink

I'm having some problems with mine.
The top was rather bumpy before I blocked it, but blocking fixed it.
When I finished the sleeves, I found they were too tight around the band, but I managed to fix this in blocking.
 Angry  It fit snugly around the bottom when I first tried it on (before I did the bottom garter stitch border)  But after I've blocked it, it's way too loose around the bottom.  It doesn't look good at all.

Could I try to reblock this and make it more snug around the bottom?  Or could I perhaps frog a bit of it and add some decreases?   Cry Cry

No questions this time!  Just a photo of my progress. Smiley
Last night I attached the pocket.  I can tell this is going to be an exceedingly comfortable pullover.  The Wool of the Andes is so soft.

Digital cameras are so strange..  The color of the yarn is pretty accurate, but the color of the carpet is not at all.  That carpet is actually a really nice dusty blue color.  weird

46  Re: One Skein Wonder KAL Anyone? in Knitalongs by ijsblokje on: July 08, 2005 10:45:26 PM
A while ago I bought a hank/skein of Araucania's Patagonia Nature Cotton yarn in a color I'll call "celery." :::
I didn't know what I'd do with it til now.. haha
I think I'm going to buy this pattern and try to knit it with the Patagonia.
I think the skein is about 105 yards so I'll probably have to add in some black stripes or something.

I've been wanting to knit a shrug for so long.. maybe now I'll actually knit one.. and quickly.

as a sidenote.. I read through this whole thread and there are some really lovely OSW's out there.  bravo ladies!

edittt: ok, quick question:
When you're making the k1fb on the purl rows, do you need to do them the purl way? or are the bars supposed to show up?

I'm just going to use your post as a place to post a photo of mine...

This was also my first foray into circular needles and dpns.
I confused myself when the top of the hat got smaller.. and I started knitting the tube backwards, but I think I covered the hole up well enough.. haha
The baby certainly won't care if it's not perfect.

I used a Sugar n Cream yarn.. forgot the name of the color.
It knit so quickly and now I want to make an adult sized hat!

i made this last year for my notebook for school.  i used metallic pink acrylic paint to add accents.  i got the images from various magazines and adhered them with Mod Podge.  i also used to coats of Mod Podge to protect it.

the caption above Einstein reads "The name's Einstein.  Albert Einstein."
the girl with the pink hair "Go on. Spoil me!"
the caption next to James Dean "We love a brooding man like James Dean."
