1  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Re: Top Down Raglan...along... on: November 22, 2006 12:06:22 AM
I am starting a top down raglan, so I will join in! Not using any pre-made pattern, just kind of making it up as I go along. It is going to be a wrap style cardigan that I can use for the office when the a/c is blasting. It's kind of too hot down here otherwise. Wink I am making it out of a lovely sport weight alpaca on size 4s. Crazy as it sounds it is going to be a dream when finished.

I'm so surprised at the response to this! Cheesy I'm glad everyone likes the hoodie. I hope you all post pictures of yours, I'm dying to see them!

Oh wow, Jill Montgomery wrote this!!!

I used to work with Jill at webs, she is by far one of the most talented knitters I have ever met. Smiley

Rtgrrl, that looks beautiful. I like the smoother silhouette without the purl ridges. I'm making notes for my next sweater. What kind of crochet edging will you be doing?

Just a simple single crochet around the neck, sleeves, and hem.  Smiley

edit: I AM DONE Cheesy

I finished the knitting bits!!!! Cheesy 

What's left: crochet edging, and blocking and weaving ends. I won't finish tonight but I might be able to wear it Friday. I'm so happy, I love it! Cheesy
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: why did you start knitting? on: September 30, 2006 04:55:17 AM
My great-grandmother knit, my aunt knits, and I really just thought it would be interesting to do! I started when I was about 12 or 13 and kind of was ok but lost interest really quickly. I picked it up again when I was about 23 and stuck with it! (I am 26 now). I just love the idea of being able to make an article of clothing that you want, but just can't find in a store. It relaxes me and helps me focus; good for a scatterbrain like me. Cheesy
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: how long do your knitpicks orders usually take? on: September 30, 2006 04:02:42 AM
I've only ever ordered their needle set, and because I live overseas it depends on when my mom ships things to me Cheesy

I think the needles got to her house in a week or so, and it takes another week to send to Australia. I think it was about 3 weeks on average. Not bad for way down here!

Webs has it! Smiley Shameless plug because I used to work there and love the place, but they really do tend to keep a decent backstock of things.

I took a break from mine for a while, and I am now back into it!

I am about halfway done with one sleeve. It took me a few tries to knit them how I wanted (I modified the sleeves a bit) but I think they are looking good. I should hopefully have the sleeve finished by the weekend and if so I will for sure take a photo Cheesy
10  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: yarn wranglin'... what's your preferred method? on: September 16, 2006 03:36:26 AM
My swift and ball winder are indispensable to me. I am one of the people who loses patience winding things by hand, so when I can have a yarn pie ready and waiting for me in just a few minutes, it makes me happy. Smiley
