I'm on to my sleeves now! I haven't been very diligent about knitting anything lately... if I had been, I'd be done by now.
12  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Urchin beret from Twinkle's Weekend Knits on: April 16, 2008 05:09:12 PM
Presenting... the Urchin Beret (which I'm realizing is a pretty common name for a beret?)

(excerpted from my blog)

I used Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick and Quick on size 17 DPNS (instead of size 19). Also, at the suggestion of someone on Ravelry, I added two increase rows (and their corresponding decrease rows, and all the knit rows in between), which really made it super floppy, the way I like it. After I finished, I realized the brim was a little too snug, so I stretched it with my hands, and now its a big too loose (and slightly heavy). But if I cover my ears with it, slightly, itll stay on my head.

Thanks for looking!

I'm in. I've got a crapload of Caron Simply Soft that I could triple-strand, so... it'll take care of all that.

Thanks for all the kind words! I think I will go ahead and attach my buttons and do all the obligatory finishing stuff and reassess then. Smiley

aka, my Woolly Beast sweater.

It actually WAS too big, just like everyone on Ravelry said it would be. Oh well, I can wear it around the house as a sort of bed jacket. And I finally learned how to do short rows. I used Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick & Quick.

Is this pattern on Ravelry? I tried to search for it. What book did you get it from?

Thanks! Yeah, I finally found something to use SWS for, and it turned out well. (I'd been waiting for the perfect project to use that yarn.)

Yeah, the only difference is that there is some sort of increase you have to make if you're doing seed stitch, but you don't have to for stockinette. That's all. Seriously.

No, it was actually really easy. Well, I did it all stockinette, so it went better for me than it would have if I had decided to do seed stitch.

Knitty's Calorimetry, in Rowan Kid Classic (some silvery color)

Lastly, two One-Skein Crochet scarves, in Cascade 200 Wool (royal blue) and Cascade 220 Superwash (white) - gifts for a friend

All started and finished within the past month, I think. I am a machine.
