1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Re: My first skirt! Brown half circle skirt - *Update: Tutorial added* on: September 18, 2008 10:15:28 AM
This skirt is so pretty.   I love the color and it looks fabulous with the sweater and boots.  I've been looking for a simple pattern for a fuller skirt that might look good for fall and this one looks so easy to follow. 

What sort of fabric did you use?  What sort of fabrics do you think the pattern would work best with?  I know thinner fabrics work well with circle patterns, but do you think I could use something stiffer?

Such lovely socks for your first pair.  I'm very partial to the orange color, too.  It is impossible to be grumpy when you have bright socks on your feet.

I've got to second Rjbell.  Sock knitting only looks hard.  I too swore up and down I'd never knit a pair of socks, and now I'm addicted as well. 

We should keep the secret of socks to ourselves, though.  I like seeing people's faces when I explain to them that I'm actually knitting a sock you can wear.   Cheesy

Oh, goodness, that's the pattern I've been looking for!  I knit up a bunch of socks from it and then lost the paper I had printed the pattern on.  (I think the cats may have stolen it.)

I really love the colors.  Is there a special baby recipient?

It's Koigu Premium Painter's Palette Merino. 
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Tiny Socks on: July 06, 2007 11:21:51 AM
My family will soon have two new babies and I needed something that: 1. used up yarn I already had,  2. was really, painfully cute, and 3. was easy and quick to make. 

I found a pattern for tiny baby socks and started knitting.

This is the socks next to the big one I knit for a friend.  My friend doesn't have really big feet, the baby socks are that small.

  This is one of the socks in my palm to show proportion.  It is also important to mention that my hands are rather small.  The socks are that tiny and cute.

Fear not, though.  They stretch like nobody's business.

The dresses are just gorgeous.  I recently finished the same pattern only in a light pink cotton yarn. 

It's really nice to see the dress being modeled (And by such lovely models, too).  The dress I made is a surprise gift for my little cousin, and I wasn't sure how it would look on someone.

Does the Baby Cashmerino wear and wash well?  I've never used Debby Bliss's yarns, but I'd like to make one of the cardigans from the book and I can't find a suitable substitution.

Ohh, it's the pattern of doom!  I started this pattern months ago thinking I'd finish in time for summer, but it's fall now.  So, I have until next year.  Anyway, I'm so incredibly astounded at all three of the dresses here.  You guys make this pattern look effortless -- and your results are so inspiring.

I'm very glad I found this topic.  After I'm finished being angry at my dress, I'm going to try again.

What a lovely gift idea.  I was just reading a few days ago about how babies who are carried around by their parents during the first few months are more intelligent because they're allowed to observe more of the world than babies who aren't carried around.  So, your sling is not only beautiful, but very useful, too.   Cheesy

I'm also very jealous that your cat looks so well-behaved.  If I ever tried anything like that, I'd probably get all mauled and whatnot.

I like them very much.  I'm especially fond of the fact that they look like they're the perfect length.  Every time I buy pajama pants, they're either too long or too short and maybe making my own would solve that.  Did you use a pattern?  Anyway, you did a lovely job and the color is beautiful.

You look lovely.  And that corset. . . it's amazing.  I love the lace detailing.

When I made a corset, I ordered boning from Farthingales (I think) and it came pre-cut and rounded -- but I didn't measure well, so I still got a bad case of "the pokies".  It sounds like you cut your own, so maybe you could try pre-cut boning the next time you try a corset.  Just measure after you sew the corset together. 

I've also heard of corset-tips you can slide on after you cut the steel, but I don't really know much about them.

And, if Otakon is the Baltimore convention, then I've heard of it.  My friend goes every year and I got all excited because I knew what you were talking about.   Grin
