1  Stash-busting Poppy Sweater in Knitting: Completed Projects by staysik on: November 29, 2008 02:54:43 PM
This sweater is made of various cotton yarns, the biggest stash-busting project I've made so far. Its from a pattern called Poppy in "Yarnplay", which is an excellent book!!!  All I need to do is to figure out what color to to the neckline edging, and if I should do more than one row of hemline single-crochet edging, and in what color (I did black).  Also,if anyone has ideas or suggestions, let me know.... I was thinking I should try to incorporate some navy blue or black into the body or the sweater somehow (duplicate or slip stitch over?) but I dunno if that's necessary or not.  What do you'all think??

4  To Dye For sweater....in black (not dyed) in Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller by staysik on: July 21, 2008 03:11:24 PM
Here's pics of the To Dye For sweater from Stitch N Bitch, the original book.  I used Suss Mohair in black.  The sweater is really easy- the hardest part was seaming it.  Oh and getting all my jewelry hung up on it while I'm wearing it  Undecided   Here's the best I can do to show the texture and drape and all that stuff w/ the lame camera I have:

5  Help me! Scarf or continue on 2 B shawl???? in Crochet: Completed Projects by staysik on: July 21, 2008 02:40:12 PM

Please give me your opinion.  I was going to make this into a scarf, but I have enough yarn & could even add more colors to make a shawl out of it.  So my question:  should I finish it as a scarf, or make it in2 a shawl??   And question 2: if I do continue on to make this in2 a shawl, should I add other colors, change the stripe sequence, or keep the colors and strips the same- or change one and not the other Smiley  ??  Thank you!

6  Lace Halter top, knitted and crocheted in Knitting: Completed Projects by staysik on: July 16, 2008 04:44:02 PM

This started out as a swatch for a lace pattern- I think it was from the Yoga Bag in one on the SnB books- and I liked it so much that I ended up knitting a top for it, and crocheting the edgings and the ties, and flowers on the ties.  The back has a corset- tie- thing going on, but its hard to tell w/ the pics I have  Undecided  I'll try and add some more pics when I can.  The top part, or the "bra" part is knitted, then I just crochet edgings, and made crocheted ties until it fit just right.  Since I made it up as  I went along, there's no pattern for it.  Thanx 4 looking!  Smiley

8  Purple Sweet pea Shawl in Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller by staysik on: June 13, 2008 10:12:15 AM

I used mercerized cotton yarn from Elann. It took 6 ot 7 50 g. skeins. This was a really easy project and awesome for summer. Never though of myself as a shawl person....until I started knitting and crocheting again.   Cheesy This one's my favorite! I've made three cuz they make good gifts.  I like the purple one (and its mine) so I'm posting pics of it.  The other ones I did were black, and then black w/ a silver strand running through it.

9  Cable hat w/ ear-flaps in Knitting: Completed Projects by staysik on: June 10, 2008 08:58:30 AM
Knit hat w/ cables, I used superwash wool, worsted wt., the pattern's from Not Your Mamma's Knitting BUT the pattern in the book I got had an error in it, and I couldn't find the errata- I checked the publisher and tried searching. But I figured it out, and it fits just fine. I wore it all winter  Smiley

10  Felted bag in Knitting: Completed Projects by staysik on: June 10, 2008 08:54:39 AM

Knit, Cascade pastazza and reg 220 wool, felting was done in the washing machine. The pattern was sort of a combination of a few- based mostly on a little flyer from Lion's- those freebie patterns by the yarn. Very easy, and Cascade just felts so beautifully; I love it. 

The only lame thing about some shades of pastazza is that I've noticed they competely changed colors after felting.  I had a cool purple yarn, and when I felted the bag, it became sort of a orange-brown-purple.  Not as cool, but ok.  The same thing happened w/ the turqoise on this purse, but not nearly as dramatic.
