Here's my take on it - in my niece's school colors.

2  Re: THE cutest baby booties EVER! NOW WITH HAT!!! in Knitting: Completed Projects by lizajane73 on: January 07, 2005 05:43:05 PM
I finished these a couple weeks ago, but haven't posted until now.  I didn't take a picture before giving them to the recipient, so I had to snap this quickly at dinner:

Sararosa, I had the same problem with the broken look, but i pulled at the yarn and it "fluffed up" enough to cover most of the tan... I like it with a little bit showing because it looks more natural... The second one, I tried a duplicate stitch, but it was too much - like a big white worm crawling up the side of the bootie.

Here is my update:

This is at 6.5" from two days ago. It's about 9" now. It's knitting up really well - this is my first try with tape yarn (Trendsetter Pavia) and I love how it handles! My last yarn project was really easy to split, which was SUCH a pain.

It's hard to tell but the pink has tiny little metallic threads in it, so it kind of shimmers.

4  Re: Picking up stitches for sleeves in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by lizajane73 on: September 21, 2004 09:12:50 AM
I think if you do, you end up with sleeves that are kind of bulky in the armpit. I have a baby jacket pattern that knits the sleeves from the shoulders down, and they don't lay very flat, but I guess babies probably wouldn't care.

It might depend on how thick the yarn is, and how long the sleeve is, whether or not it's unbearably bulky.

But if you knit it like this (excuse my fabulous Paint skills)

Then when you put it on, the rows do this:

But if you knit from the bottom up, you can shorten the rows as you go up, so they go more like this:

5  Re: Sticky Rice in Recipes and Cooking Tips by lizajane73 on: August 20, 2004 09:58:56 AM
If you get the calrose rice (or botan, or any other rice on the asian aisle in the market) you can also cook it in one of these

you can pick one up for pretty cheap, and all you do is throw 3 cups rice and 4 cups water in, push the button and wait. 20 minutes later - perfect sticky rice. I think my botan bag says you can cook it on the stove in a regular pan, but I've never done that (my mom is japanese, so she always used the rice cooker, and when i moved out, i just took her hand-me-down. I'd like to try it in the bamboo steamer though - that sounds fun and I always love a reason to buy new cooking gadgets!)

6  First projects - Baby jacket & scarf in Knitting: Completed Projects by lizajane73 on: August 15, 2004 08:40:36 PM
Finally got the camera working so I can document that I FINISHED something!!  Hooray!!

So, ignoring the halter top I made for my daughter and never put straps on (it was too small/revealing), here are my first and second finished projects.

As the baby for the jacket is unborn, my son's old teddy bear had to step in and do modeling duty...

and from the side

And since he was already working it, I let him model the scarf as well (anything to avoid having my picture taken!)

Anyway, I hope you like them. I am so excited just to finish something!!! (Though I HAVE to finish my current project - a scarf for the Scarf Swap - pronto!)

The jacket is a Lion Brand pattern (Hooded Baby Poncho) made with their now discontinued TerrySpun, which although I have 6.5 more skeins I will never EVER use again. (Grrr - the terry loops unravel in the center of the skein and leave you with kinky floss). The scarf is a bastardized garter stitch(I didn't know any better and did all my knit stitches through the back of the loop) in some awfully expensive yarn they suckered me into at the LYS because I asked for chunky. (It was my first yarn purchase ever...)

7  Need Poncho Pattern in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by lizajane73 on: August 11, 2004 11:52:39 AM
I would really like to make a poncho like this one

Does anyone know of a similar pattern? I've googled for cable poncho and come up with nothing similar, and I checked the faerycrafty blog list, but no dice.

I would really, really appreciate it!!
