1  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / blythe ahoy! little nautical sweater on: February 06, 2011 09:32:30 AM

little blythe boat sweater! wow it has been forever since I have knit for my blythe dolls. I used light fingering weight wool (scraps) and size US 0 (2.00 mm) needles

inspired by those classic mary maxim sweaters, here is a tiny nautical one. I think it looks pretty cute both ways.

i'd like to do another - maybe curling inspired or a reindeer

also would folks want a pattern??
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / addictive tams! and a tomten on: December 27, 2007 12:52:04 PM
hooray for completed projects - these all seem to finish at the same time and boy does that make me smile!

first off the tams - i fell in love with knitty's three tams pattern http://knitty.com/ISSUEwinter07/PATTtam.html
i made this one (version c) for me with local yukon alpaca and noro silkgarden (shade 226)

and a second one (a hybrid of version b + a) for my sister - we've named it the bruise tam because the colours are all bruise-y shades  Wink

and yes i've cast on another!

and my tomten for my friend's little boy is done- hoooray!! i actually completed knitting it in November but haven't been able to put the zipper in until now - i'm home for christmas so my mom sewed it in with her machine. i'm sooo pleased. the buttons are just a 'design element' -read: the top of the zipper was difficult to sew so it looked rather messy there so we sewed on the buttons to hide the machine stitches there ... plus i do think they are cute (knit with Lorna's Laces Bullfrogs and Butterflies - daffodil shade)

3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / FO: ruffled fingerless gloves on: October 03, 2007 11:11:04 PM
horray an FO! here are my berry picking gloves (based on the ruffled gloves in loop-d-loop)

*mods:* i've flipped them upside down so to speak - now the ruffle is up top.

*wool:* patrick got me this most amazing handspun wool/alpaca at the ODD gallery auction in Dawson City - it is sooo lush! it is 2ply - one = natural grey and the other is hand dyed in rainbow colours

and umm it took me a couple weeks to actually get around to weave the ends in but otherwise it was very quick knit!
4  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Molly dress *a mod blythe dress - with tute!* on: September 22, 2007 02:26:39 PM

Hi! I made this dress for the last Blythe swap and had a couple requests on Ravelry for a pattern - so here you go! further pics etc on my blog http://knit-north.blogspot.com/2007/09/molly-dress-little-mod-number-for.html 

12" Blythe Doll

   Lang Jawoll sock yarn [75% superwash wool,18% nylon,7% acrylic 206 yards per 50 gram ball] - I love Jawoll! It is a lighter weight than most sock yarns, which is great for doll clothes. The best thing about it is each skein includes a 5g spool of reinforcement thread ~ perfect to sew on buttons, sequins etc!
   two doll sized buttons
   sequins, beads [optional]
   set of four 2.75 mm [US size #2] needles

   CO 40 sts. leave a tail aprox 3 inches long
   Knit 2 rows. Join - being careful not to twist.
   Eyelet Row: *K2tog YO* repeat
   Knit 10 rows
   Reduce row: *K3, K2tog* repeat (end up with 32 sts)
   K1P1 Rib for 4 rows
   Knit 12 rows

Divide for Front:
   K16 turn, P16
   K1P1 for 3 (or 4) rows
   Cast off Purl wise

   Pick up 16 sts at the Back
   Stockinette 4 rows (K on RS, P on WS)
   Next row P on RS
   Eyelet Row: *K2tog YO* repeat
   P 1 row
   Cast off

Use yarn tail from bottom to sew the bottom 2 rows together.
Sew on 2 buttons to the top front edges (use the eyelet holes as button holes) If desired, sew on sequins and/or beads to skirt portion. Weave in ends.

Hope you enjoy! if you have questions let me know - this is the first pattern I have written up, so fingers crossed I am clear.
I'd love to see other versions - please post them!

6  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / if you could only own 1 EZ book on: August 24, 2007 12:06:26 PM
i pretty much have all of Elizabeth Zimmermann's books and totally adore them all even if many of the patterns overlap.
my sister is out east now and no longer has access to my books- she wants to know which one EZ should she buy

i'm thinking "knitting workshop" as it has so many of her classic patterns - like tomten, baby surprise, yoked sweaters, eps etc ...

what do you guys think?

i'm torn because even as i write this but what about the opinionated knitter, knitting without tears ......

8  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / noro bonnet - now x2 (hello yarn pattern) on: May 13, 2007 10:49:05 AM
my dear friend patsy in taiwan is about to have a baby - i was was a little stuck on what to make ... i'm from northern canada and often make cozy hats and warm sweaters as baby gifts .... but i've lived in taiwan: wool doesn't make sense! and i don't know about you but i don't really like knitting with cotton - it kinda bugs my hands ... anyway the answer arrived at my door(which is really lucky for me because i live in a remote place) as part of the "my country doesn't have that swap" i received a skien of Noro Sakura (a rayon, poly, silk blend)

pattern: Top Down Bonnet from Hello Yarn http://www.helloyarn.com/topdownbonnet.htm
needles: double pointed size 4
wool: Noro Sakura (half a skien - i've started another!)
size: newborn

and a yummy detail

**edited to add: do you think this can be uni-sex? it has a fair bit of pink (and blue) in it....
