71  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: New Vogue Knitting, Spring/Summer 2006 on: March 29, 2006 08:59:43 AM
I thought it was really ironic that my favorite pattern was the  "crocheted corset"

But i also really liked Mari Lynn Patrick's green, short sleeved pullover and Vladimir Teriokhin's blue, cinched waist top

Wow... it doesn't really look knit on the preview, that's crazy! Do you know what yarn it uses?
Classic Elite Yarns Star (cotton/lycra) 3 - 112yd skeins
  I'm with you on that corset!  I think I'm going to use it as incentive to teach myself how to crochet.  I'm also loving that cinched waist top.  The only fear I have is that it might look a little bulky.  I'm half tempted to modify it and use thinner yarn.  I just haven't decided if I'm that masochistic.  But what can I say, I'm a sucker for girly, frilly things and there were many of those in this issue.  I think some of it may end up serving more for inspiration than for actual projects, though.

Ooo.  That's gorgeous.  It looks like it would make for a great summer sweater!
73  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Making stripes match across the front of a coat?? on: March 17, 2006 11:23:21 AM
Hmmm.  Since it's variegated, are you even making it across a complete row in one of the stripe shades (I can't tell how close together the shades are because when I brought it up on Yarndex the color variance isn't that obvious on my monitor)?  I ask because if you're not, it probably wouldn't look strange if the stripes don't match up precisely because the color is switching elsewhere.  You could always knit a few rows of the next side to determine if you'd still like it if it's not as precise as the one in Rebecca.

What's the chance that you actually wrote down the number of rows you used (or can backtrack and write it down)?

I hadn't seen anyone post a link to organic cotton online, yet, so here's one that might be of use: http://www.handknitting.com/s.nl/sc.7/category.241/.f  Caveat: I haven't ordered from here before, but the price seems super reasonable for organic cotton. The brand is Ecoknit and said not to be bleached or dyed which would be useful for those concerned.

All in all this seems like an interesting project.  I'm not sure it's practical for me as I detest doing laundry (I miss having my own machine).  This doesn't seem like the kind of thing that you'd want to let sit too long.  I'm wondering if I made some I could trick myself into doing regular laundry.  I wouldn't have a problem boiling them clean, but I can't imagine one would particularly let them air dry.

Perhaps one is expected to sleep in it.

I feel your pain.  I am 30% through a, um, Christmas present for my friend.  Since he paints, he abstains from a lot of color in his apartment.  I found a nice variegated acrylic, but it's boucle style.  I planned a couple of cables down the side, but had to make them huge to make them make sense in the yarn I chose.  The rest of it basketweave.  It's smart that you're looking to do this in pieces.  I wish I had thought of that.  Part of the reason that it is taking me so long to finish is that it is too big to take anywhere and I do a lot of my knitting on the go.   
78  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Bamboo and Soy Silk Yarn? on: February 17, 2006 07:20:37 AM
I haven't used soy silk yarn yet.  I'm supposed to be stash busting, but now I think I'm going to have to go out and buy some.  I loved working with bamboo yarn.  It drapes beautifully.  I found it split fairly easily, though, while working with bamboo needles.  Now if only I could get my hands on some banana silk!

Well, that might be a possibility.  I suppose I have to figure out what I want to bring.  My crafting supplies have been quite disordered since my recent move.  I'll pm you.

If only the L were running this weekend I'd think about it.  My mom keeps telling me to join a book club, but this is more my style.
