1  Re: Another Slouchy Beret - this time a cow pie? EDITED: NOW WITH PROMISED PATTE in Knitting: Completed Projects by donnac368 on: February 07, 2008 08:26:59 AM
I made 2!  The first was too slouchy for dd#1 (Cascade 128 and US#7 dpns), so I kept it, and made her another with lighter yarn, smaller needles and less rounds, Lion Brand Woolease and US#5 addi 16" circs and dpns.

I just finished mine.  Done in Classic Elite Pima Cotton Tencel, icey blue, on #4 bamboo circs.  I really enjoyed it, and it taught me to pay better attention when you think you have an easy lace pattern! I decreased in the front and back before placing straps, and left the top as is rather than adding ribbing.  I thought I'd prefer the ribbing but ended up frogging it.  I bound off tightly and between that and the decreasing, I have no real problems with the straps, except that they'll probably have to be shortened.

Here's my Monkey in progress.  Need to do 4 more heel rows and then pick up.
The yarn is Wildfoote Handpaint Sock Yarn from Brown Sheep and the needles are the shorty Brittany birches size 1.  I can see I might have trouble getting it over my heel as well but I know they'll stretch and I hate droopy socks.

What a quick knit!

My Bag is Done!

After putting off the handles for months, I finally just decided enough is enough and knit them long ways.  I'm very happy with the result.  They don't stretch and they have a little curve so I put one curve going one way, one going the other way.   The particulars:
Winter Bag for Daughter
Pattern: Garnstudio Drops Design Bag with Cable Pattern Drops number 98, pattern 54
Yarn: Patons Classic Wool, color Dark Grey Mix 1 1/2 skeins
Needles: Size 4 bamboo circular

6  Re: Dayflower Lace Scarf (with link to free pattern) in Knitting: Completed Projects by donnac368 on: December 26, 2006 11:42:04 AM
Two Dayflowers and a Liesel.  These were gifts for my sisters and mom.  I made the scarf pins for them too.  I enjoyed the Dayflowers, but couldn't do three in a row, so I switched to the Liesel.  It was a bit more challenging, but after a couple of repeats it went quickly.  I enjoyed them all and now I am hooked on lace.  By the way, I made some scarf pins (kilt pins actually) for each.

The green scarf is done in Lambs Pride cotton and the pink one is done in Debbie Bliss Cashmerino (the Liesel is Cashmerino too).

Here's a closeup:

Wow - almost a year since someone posted a Liesel.  Here's mine:

It's the one on the right, made from Debbie Bliss Cashmerino.  The other two are Dayflower Lace Scarves.  Liesel is a bit more interesting to work on.  I enjoyed it.  I gave it to my older sister along with a handmade scarf pin.

9  Clapotis Finis! in Knitalongs by donnac368 on: October 18, 2006 07:41:54 AM
This is my fall Clapotis, and I loved doing it.  It took 7 balls of Noro Silk Garden 201 on size 8 Lantern Moon bamboo circular needles.  I frogged halfway through, "cleaned up my act" and got serious with paying attention to the pattern, and the result is terrific!  I'm not blocking because I love the way it curls up around me.  I wore it to dinner in Manhattan down in Soho last week and got looks (maybe "Where DID she buy that gorgeous stole?" LOL)

OK, let's have another try.  After all, if I can knit a fake a gamo, I can surely upload some photos, right?  Wink
