1  My first sweater! (a Berroco shapely pattern) in Knitting: Completed Projects by jetgrrl on: January 06, 2007 07:15:13 PM
I actually finished most of this in May (just in time for non-sweater weather here in NH), but the neckline was too big. I got some great help here with ideas for how to cinch it a bit, and I ended up doing single crochet around the neckline twice. It still a bit open at the neck but not falling off my shoulders.

This is from a Berroco pattern (Bernadette from book 234) meant for their suede yarn. I substituted Cascade Peruvian Wool in a cool blue-green color. I picked the pattern because it was shaped and had some cool embelishments, but not so much that it would be intimidating. Plus I learned to use a cable needle!

The detailing is on the front and both sleeves

2  Knitty's pedicure socks - an Xmas gift in Knitting: Completed Projects by jetgrrl on: January 02, 2007 07:39:29 AM
I finished these in November and could have even posted them since my best friend doesn't look here, but I lost the cord of my camera until yesterday!

Anyway, these are the pedicure socks from Knitty, with no modification except the color. The idea is that you can wear them with flip flops and still get your toes done. Smiley They called for red and orange and I used red and pink, but it's still Paton's Classic Merino. These were my first socks of any kind and I found the pattern very easy to follow, even for turning the heel (which uses short rows).

Sorry for my huge foot. My friend wears 2 sizes smaller! Click on the images to see bigger versions.

3  First Baby Sweater! in Knitting: Completed Projects by jetgrrl on: November 14, 2006 03:54:42 PM
My first baby sweater and one of my better FO's! This is the "Baby's pure and simple pullover" from Weekend Knitting. I used Ry Classic Cashsoft Baby DK and boy howdy is that stuff soft! I wish I could make a me-sized sweater of it...

Gave it to a friend in London and grabbed these pics (with a British pound next to it) just before handing it over!

Here's mine:

Even though I'm a bad artist on the little Conserve Wildlife one, it's very much like a drawing I made for my father when I was a little girl. He, much like Steve, is a huge conservationist. I might add a few more doodles before it goes into the envelope tomorrow.

5  Neckline too big on my finished sweater. Ideas? in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by jetgrrl on: June 26, 2006 09:20:34 AM
Hey folks, I just finished my first sweater. Yay!

And it's turned out pretty well, except the neckline is a little too big. It's a raglan sleeve, so I guess it's really the top of the sleeves that is a little too long and it's making it almost hang off of my shoulders. I've thought about redoing the seams to take a bit more into the selvage or putting in some elastic thread, but I was wondering if there were any suggestions from the wise craftsters?  Smiley

Here's photos to see what I mean. It doesn't look to bad in the photos, but it really feels like it's going to slide off my shoulders at any second.

The pattern is Berroco Bernadette in case anyone is interested.

6  First completed project post: the alien scarf in Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller by jetgrrl on: February 27, 2006 07:45:16 AM
I finally get to post a completed project. Yay! I actually finished the scarf last winter, but for the rest of last year it hung by the door curling in on itself. Well, I blocked it a couple of weeks ago and finally took a photo. My husband is the primary wearer of it now. Smiley
