11  Maroon Scarf with Pom Poms in Knitting: Completed Projects by Margarita Miss on: October 26, 2006 07:19:41 PM
I've been on a real scarf knitting kick lately.  I think this is my favourite one so far.  I combined 4 yarns with very different textures, but I liked the colour combination.  The first picture shows the true colour of the scarf.  The close-up was done on a scanner and makes the yarns look lighter.

12  Corn on the cob scarf in Knitting: Completed Projects by Margarita Miss on: October 20, 2006 03:02:59 PM
I made this scarf for a little girl, not quite 2 yet.  She likes 'lellow'.  It reminded me of corn on the cob as I was knitting it.  I think the st. I used is probably called popcorn st. or something similar.

and a close-up of the popcorn st.

13  Jabba the Hut neckwarmer in Knitting: Completed Projects by Margarita Miss on: October 19, 2006 07:39:41 AM
It reminded me of Jabba when I wear it with the 3 roll look, but it can also be worn just rolled over once to look like a turtleneck or just bunched loosely.  It's very soft and warm.  I might make armwarmers to match.

Well if I wouldn't have started this knitalong, I'd abandon this scarf project for sure, because it's just not that much fun.  It's not as portable a project as I thought mainly because of using the dpn's.  I've been forcing myself to knit a link or two here and there while working on other more enjoyable things.  I'm also using chenille yarn instead of wool, so it really doesn't "give" on the needles.  Because it's not wool, it won't be fulled after I finish knitting it, but at least I like the look of the chenille when it's knit up.  Eight links so far and another nineteen to go, if I follow the pattern suggestion.

15  Our craft night - jewellery making is addictive! in Beads: Completed Projects by Margarita Miss on: October 11, 2006 08:53:33 PM
Once a month, 6 of us get together for "craft night".  We try something new each time - we have knit, made jam, painted rocks, made picture frames, etc.  Tonight we made jewellery.  It was tons of fun and it's very addictive.  We think we might make jewellery again at next month's get-together.  Here are some of the things we made.  The last photo includes a couple of pieces that were made by a friend of ours who wasn't in attendance this evening.

16  Re: A Bag a Month Craftalong? in Craftalongs by Margarita Miss on: October 06, 2006 12:34:52 PM
I made bags for the first four months of this craftalong, but then I got so into knitting that I didn't have time for anything else.  I've still been admiring all the gorgeous bags that the rest of you have been making.  Now I've got a knitted cable bag that I can finally post.

17  Re: An Awesome Cabled bag from Garnstudio! in Knitalongs by Margarita Miss on: October 06, 2006 12:25:06 PM
My bag's done, well almost - it's just not lined yet.  I won't have time this weekend to go shopping for fabric because it's Canadian Thanksgiving.  In the meantime, I plan to use my bag this weekend - yes, unlined - and I'll just put keys and other poky things in a zipped make-up bag inside.

18  Autumn Scarf - Knit Sideways in Knitting: Completed Projects by Margarita Miss on: September 29, 2006 01:19:28 PM
Hot off the needles.  I just finished sewing in the loose ends and I'm wearing it tonight.  This is one of the few projects that I've finished in the proper season to actually wear it.  It's lightweight so it's perfect for this time of year.

Margarita Miss please do post pics of the stitch.. i didnt have chance to try it out before so i have no idea how it looks like..

Here are the straps showing the RS and WS.  I scanned the straps but I'm not sure why the photo has a black and white quality to it.  The yarn is really kind of a steel blue.  I'm probably going to use these for the bag.  If I don't like how they look on the purse once it's done, then maybe I'll buy some ready-made handles.  If I were to do this bag again, (which I won't), I'd change it and do simple stockinette st. instead of every second cable.  I think I'd like the overall look better.
Has anyone else started this bag yet?

Okay, I'm dating myself, but back in the 80's when angora and big roomy sleeves were so popular, I knit a lot of sweaters side to side.  I'd cast on for the cuffs, and knit the sweater all in one piece.  Then I'd sew the side and sleeve seams together.  I'd finish it by picking up stiches at the bottom of the sweater and later the neckline and do some decorative ribbing or edging.  Is this what you're referring to?

btw. I love your website.  You inspired me to knit "Not my Granny's Shawl".
