1  UNITED STATES / Minnesota / Minneapolis, MN: A Stitch In Time Saves on: August 27, 2007 08:48:20 AM
I got this e-mail from the organizers - hope you can donate/attend!

The 35W bridge collapse has affected us all, personally and as a community.  Although we cant do much to build the bridge back up, we can do something to support the families of those injured or lost.

In response to this tragedy, some of your local crafting friends will be hosting:
A Stitch In Time Saves
Grumpys Downtown
1111 Washington Avenue
September 6, 2007
6:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.

I'm not sure if this belongs here, but I had to share this with other knitters. This woman is amazing! Um, vegan cupcakes with knit marzipan garments on top? Yes please!

Hm. I haven't thought that far ahead.  In my modifications, I was keeping the back steak...

yummy, yummy, steak.

Sorry, couldn't resist. Smiley

Not just steak: back steak!

Of course I'm a total tool and didn't keep notes. But it should be easy to recreate, except maybe the decreases, which are my least favorite part anyway. I got the braided cable from the 2nd Barbara Walker treasury. There are four of the cables, separated by a 1 x 1 rib. I think if you find a cable you like, you can figure out how many stitches you need to get the right size hat, decide how many cables you want, and fill in the rest with ribbing or another pattern.
Not very helpful, I know, but I encourage you to try making up your own pattern - it was really fun, and easier than I thought it would be. Good luck!

I made this for a friend this past winter and never posted it. I made it up as I went. There are things I would change if I did it again, but it was a learning experience! And it was a good excuse to use lovely Artyarns supermerino.

60 rows in and it's actually fitting! Very exciting. I haven't had a lot of time to work on it, but it's inching along.

Elbow-length sleeves will look great with this sweater! I can't wait to see them. Looks really good so far.

Yes!  I love it! Can you tell me more about the cutting and dying processes?  How did you keep the width of the strips consistent while cutting?  Did you just use scissors and eyeball it?  What dye did you use?

Thanks so much for the inspiration.  I just bought a house and I can't wait to start making shit for it.
