11  Anthropologie Fall 07 sweaters in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by honeypeaches on: September 08, 2007 07:40:44 PM
I haven't even started the Gap sweater I posted about yet, and then I find these two:

The Blossom House cardigan (item 710335)

and the Cactus Flower cardigan (item 71472)

The BH looks like just your average cable cardigan with buttons, right? It just has a different colored button panel (which I know how to do) and crocheted flowers.

And the CF - I saw a pattern for a sweater almost just like this one in the new Knit Simple. Actually, I might like that other pattern better, because of the way it buttons. But I love this coloring.

What do you think? Any input/suggestions to get me started? Does anyone know where I can find a pattern for a sweater similar to the BH? I did all sorts of zooming and screen-capping, so I have more images that I didn't post.


PS - Anthropologie right now has about a million sweaters that are adorable that I can't afford. (I'm just thinking of all the yarn I could buy with the money from just one sweater...)

Alas, I can't see the sleeve well enough to get a good idea of what it looks like.

Dunno if this helps, but here's the brown one. It might be a little clearer:

13  Gap Cabled Trapeze Sweater (new for fall 07) in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by honeypeaches on: August 20, 2007 01:05:14 AM
My friend (and fellow knitting Craftster) showed me this Gap sweater since not too long ago, I showed her the new Stitch Diva trapeze sweater, and now, I think I'm in love.

I think I could handle the knitting part, but as far as the pattern creating/deciphering, I haven't a clue where to start. Clever knitters, any advice? It doesn't have to turn out exactly like this one pictured, but something similar would be way cool.

I'm a big fan of top-down, one-piece knitting, by the way. The less seaming, the better.

Finally! After MONTHS and MONTHS!!!!

It's my modified Bluebell. I used Caron Simply Soft Brites in Berry Blue, and it might be the first thing I've made that I have few complaints about (only one: the top portion before the purl ridges is too long). It wasn't hard - it just got boring. Therefore, I dragged ass on it for a long time, and finally finished it tonight Smiley Smiley Whee! (That white spot is on my camera or mirror or something, not the sweater.)

(Sorry, that picture is huge.)

Shorter evening shell, using triple-stranded Caron Simply Soft Brites in Blue Mint. Sorry, you'll get no action shot from me - I tried it on, and I guess I'm so big that the seed stitch stretches a LOT and starts to resemble some god awful 80's mesh tank top. It fits, but it doesn't look so great on me. Maybe someday.

(I'm sorry the picture is, like, ginormous.)

16  Twinkle's Twiggy Tunic (giant photo) in Knitting: Completed Projects by honeypeaches on: May 03, 2007 11:05:25 AM
I posted this in the KAL, but I thought I'd post it here as well. I made it shorter because I'm not a big fan of how tunics look on me.

I used the recommended needles with double-stranded Bernat Softee Chunky (because I can't afford Twinkle yarn).

Sorry, that picture is ginormous. Also, I have "Just woke up" face.

Work in progress...

Here's my Twiggy so far. It's one rep of the center panel on the body.

Are you sure these knits are stretchy? I'm looking at this thing and I'm like, How the heck am I going to fit in there???

19  Knitscene Spring 07 - Bow Tie Girl yarn subbing in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by honeypeaches on: March 27, 2007 09:06:28 AM

I'm looking to make Bow Tie Girl from the current Knitscene as a future Christmas gift for someone, but the yarn is rather expensive. I found a yarn sub for the main body, but I'm having trouble finding a sub for the neck, which calls for Colinette Mohair. I COULD use it, but that would put the cost at around $50 for the whole thing, which is more than I want to spend on this person. (I know, that sounds awful, but that's more than I'm spending on anyone else's gift, even my parents!)

Does anyone know of a good, FAR less expensive yarn sub? I looked on Knit Picks (which is where I'm getting most of my gift project yarn), but couldn't find anything.

Here's a picture of top:

I finished my first one too!

I made the smaller size, and I guess because of the gauge, it ended up being really long - I only did 12 rows below my thumb and 12 rows above, rather than 24 and 18.

I totally love those colors. I can't stop staring at my Dashing, because it's just so pretty Smiley

On to number 2!
