21  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: What is the one thing you've knit... on: May 14, 2007 11:26:46 PM
Definitely Sahara.  It's so customizable and flatters many different shapes and sizes.  It's also cleverly constructed and just overall a great pattern
22  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Grandpa cardigan :: Phildar Tendances Fall/Winter 2005-06 issue. on: May 14, 2007 11:23:31 PM
I have that issue of Phildar.  Mind, I got it in France, so the pattern is, well, in French.

If Knitntyme doesn't work out, contact me.

How did I not know this board was here?!

I can't wait for school to be over (this is the last week.. ever!), because then I can devote my time to all things crafty, which includes having a day long dye fest.  I'm even going to teach the boyfriend how to dye AND how to knit.  Cheesy

here's some handspun wool/mohair I dyed sometime within the last month.  (I bought the handspun from etsy; didn't spin it myself)

I used Jacquard acid dye in Gold Ochre, stovetop method.  I love the lighter yellow bits that are mixed in there.  I've knitted an earflap hat with it, which I hope to finish in the next week.  (I only have to crochet the edging and that takes me forever to do)

I also dip dyed some SWTC Optimum, using Jacquard acid dye in Pink.  I don't know how crazy I am about how it came out.  Sure it looks nice in the hank and balled up, but knitted?  :\  Maybe I'll find a good use for it.

Beautiful sweater, and the color looks great with your dark hair. I want to knit this but (a) I'm a beginner and (b) I don't wear low cut tops and in the pic on Stitch Diva, it looks so low cut. Do you think there is a way to modify the deep V neckline without altering the way the sweater lays?  Anyway, great job!
Seaming the neck thing is one of the last things you do, and you do it from the bottom up, so you totally control how deep or not it is.  You could probably seam all the way up to your collarbones if you so desired.

It's not very clear, but I would just keep with the established pattern.  You'll just have a set of 3 knit sts on one side.  That extra stitch is there for the seaming.  It'll disappear once you've seamed the sleeve.

edit: I didn't want to post right after myself..

I just finished doing the last raglan decreases on my twiggy tunic and it's completely falling off of my shoulders.  I'm wondering if I ought to do another set of decreases before starting the ribbing.  Sad
Maybe this is just a day that I'm feeling tired and bloated [ugh, finals], but I'm not so sure I like how it looks.  I'll finish it, though, and see then.
26  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Re: Clapotis from Knitty on: May 13, 2007 01:07:28 PM
I'm sort of lazily knitting 2 clapotis this summer.  I'm an ADD knitter.. I have about a million projects going at once.  I have plans to climb back onto the "Knit from Your Stash" wagon when I get back from my next trip.  That means that I actually have to finish projects I've started so that I can use up my yarn.

here's a photo of one:

I'm using MCY's wool/silk blend in "Exotic" with US 7 needles
Thanks to the high silk content, I probably won't have to block this much whenever it's finished. (if at all)

the other:

handpaintedyarn.com's Ejido 160 with US 8 needles.  I forgot the name of the colorway.  It might be Rocas.

I'm using Lion Brand Thick & Quick in ... Navy.

When I first started doing the center panel, it kind of looked like an anchor, which would've been a cool sweater idea.   Now I want to knit something a fashionable sailor would be proud of...

here's a progress photo of my Twiggy Tunic.  I'm 30 rows into the cable patterning.

and a badly lit modeled photo.  it's hot outside, so I didn't bother getting it just right.  It fits pretty well.  I ended up making the XS size.
29  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Re: Twinkle's Big City Knits Book Knitalong on: May 06, 2007 09:28:39 AM
I've started knitting the Twiggy Tunic in size S, because based on my bust measurement, that's the size I ought to knit (according to pg. 78)
However, in the photo (non-pattern section) she says to "be like Twiggy and knit a size smaller than you'd normally wear." 
As I've been knitting the sleeve, I'm wondering if I should have knitted the XS instead because it seems a wee bit bigger around than I'd like.  I know I'm using super bulky yarn, but I don't want to look like a gorilla!

I'm using Lion Brand Woolease Thick and Quick and US 13 needles.
Maybe I should try doing the body in XS to see how that fits.

edit: I just noticed that to get your cables (on the Twiggy Tunic) to twist the way they have them in the photo, you actually need to do a C4L, not C4R.  In the photo, their cables on the front twist to the left, not to the right.  (C4L is holding 2 sts to the front, not the back.)

Gandalf is looking pretty great.  You should make a matching Gandalf the White.
