11  Re: The Beginner's Raglan Sweater-Along (free easy pattern included) in Knitalongs by Just_A_Girl on: March 26, 2007 07:02:05 PM
Knittyknitter, yours looks great! I'd post a pic of mine, but I'd rather post a pic of it in its completion.... only one more sleeve left! And I just wanted to thank soozeq for the bind off help. Thanks!

Ok... changed my mind, I guess Im getting impatient.. I need to study and sleep and I cant knit anymore this night, so here is attempt #2, almost done:

Knittyknitter, yours looks awesome! Cant wait to see the finished product. As for me, Im kinda done, and kinda disappointed. First, I was running out of yarn, and Im impatient and the lys is far away.. blah blah.. so I decided to make it like a cropped sweater and perhaps add a hood later. I dont like the cropped part or as a beginner I started on the star too late and w/ boobs like mine I just dont think it works, but I may finish it anyways, I think i have a friend who may like it better than me. If nothing else I want to thank everyone for all the help, cause even though I don't love this, I learned how to make a sweater and that was a challenge in itself   Smiley
OK, acceptance speech over. On to pics.

Once I get yarn which I hope is soon, Im going to give it another go.

Ok, here we go. Progress... or something.

K, my only issue now is... is that how its meant "the 2 stitch markers should meet under the armpit"?   Anyhow...sleep now.

I started! I feel pretty good about myself, considering first sweater and all. I posted progress pics in discussions and questions. I guess if I have any more questions I should post here  Smiley Is there a pic of the finished product? Its my first time jumping into a pattern without a pic. If anyone knows let me know
Thanks! and good luck to everyone else who's starting!

15  Re: Ugh... raglan sweater help? in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by Just_A_Girl on: February 24, 2007 10:07:48 AM
Thanks for all the replies. Sooz, I am increasing every other round, Ive made that mistake in the past so Ive learned  Smiley and for all I know I could be doing this perfectly, but as Ive never knit a sweater before, paranoia at every step  Undecided I figure Id post pics just to show my progress and see if anyone notices anything wrong.

Is the sleeve part supposed to end under my armpit? I guess that was the part that was confusing me the most. Im on the 15th or so row of increase and knit. Im supposed to go to 21 and by the looks of it I need too. Any comments? Advice? Criticism?  Smiley

16  The boyfriend wanted a skull scarf...... in Knitting: Completed Projects by Just_A_Girl on: January 27, 2007 06:24:26 PM
My boyfriend saw the doubleknitted skull scarfposted by... [insert awesome craftster here] I apologize for not remebering.. but I am waaaay too tired. I'll find ittomorrow. Anyhow, he saw it and wanted a replica. Hopefully shes the blatant copying as flattery  Smiley  I started this before X-mas and it just took so bloody long. But I kept promising him I would finish it so voila! On to the pics

Isnt he cute? Kiss

Thanks Sabrinajl (I rembered)for an awesome scarf.The chart can be found http://www.sabrinajl.com/knitting/skullchart.gif

17  I think its safe to say Ive been busy (Pics) in Knitting: Completed Projects by Just_A_Girl on: September 26, 2006 01:18:26 PM
I have been busy, mostly getting the family ready for winter.

In the last couple weeks Ive finished about 6 hats, a single, solitary mitten, a few scarves, attempted a shirt, but its still in the works and am currently finishing up Kirsten Dunst's Pithy hat. Whew.

A simple ribbed hat made for my boyfriend. He saw one in a store he thought looked cool so I made one. 

And My aunt really wanted a simple cabled hat, so I used the one in Stitch and Bitch Nation.

Its really big on me... which means it'll be huge on her. Guess I'll give it to my uncle and make her a new one.

And this was my first attempt at a top. Its strapless right now, but I think straps would be in my best interest as Im a tad top heavy. But Im pretty proud. Simple, knit in the round, no shaping works for me.

18  New FO's....hot off (some still on) the needles. in Knitting: Completed Projects by Just_A_Girl on: September 26, 2006 12:56:46 PM
Some new things Ive finished up... and some not so finished.
This cabled hat is based on "18 seconds before sunrise" cabled ear flap hat. Its lacking the ear flaps...not sure if Im going to add them or not.

This is the start of some matching mittens - well, one mitten. Still havnt finished the thumb. Had some trouble and have yet to get back to it.

And this is just a little hat for my aunt's new baby. Its supposed to be the bunny hat from Stitch and Bitch Nation, without the bunny part. My aunt said she'd prefer kitty ears or something, so I'll probably be doing that instead.

19  2 Clutches in Crochet: Completed Projects by Just_A_Girl on: June 18, 2006 12:28:15 PM
I am a knitter by nature and I just very recently learned to crochet. And by very recently I mean approx. two days ago.  Im not that good by any means, but I thought I'd post my first two projects. I didnt really know what I was doing. I just kinda started and when it started to look like something I stopped.
SO here are my two clutches. I think I might want to line them, perhaps put a zipper in the pink and white one. Not really sure. I hope I can improve on my (lack) of skill. 

My first one.

And my second attempt.

 First I wanted to make this to match a dress I have, but Im not sure if its going to work. I may just knit something instead.
 Anyhow, not the greated FO's ever made, but Im slightly proud. Crocheting is hard for a knitter  Smiley
Thanks for looking.

20  First felted project - mini tote bag in Knitting: Completed Projects by Just_A_Girl on: June 18, 2006 12:04:57 PM
Hey. This my first time knitting with actual wool (for some reason its damn near impossible to find real wool where Im from) and therefore my first felted project. KNitted mini tote bag.
Pre felting

I added a pocket to the inside

After felting

Pre felting, we measured approx. a foot (literally, there was no ruler so my boyfriend put his foot up against it to get an idea of the size)  and post felting its about 8" by 8".
Its not that big a deal, but Im kinda impressed with myself. My first time felting... first time doing cast on and off WHILE knitting and first three needle bind off... which was actually alot easier than I expected. 
Also, Maybe cause its my first time, but the wool kinda smells not so great now.. is that due to the felting process?
Thanks for looking.  Cheesy
