4  Looking for a pattern for wristwarmers to match a scarf in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by Locutus137 on: July 12, 2006 11:42:20 AM
I'm working on this scarf - called Fanned Rib Scarf from Knit Ponchos, Wraps & Scarves....  I posted a crappy photo below.  Basically, I'm looking for something that flares or ruffles a bit at the hand part, but still has a thumb hole.... 

Actually, perhaps something similar to Mrs. Beeton from knitty.... here:  http://www.knitty.com/issuewinter05/PATTmrsbeeton.html

but, I want them to be longer - and have a thumb hole. 

Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks in advance!!!

6  Project needed for 8 skeins SWTC Karaoke in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by Locutus137 on: July 09, 2006 11:10:13 PM
So, while at my LYS today, I happened upon SWTC Karaoke in mermaid mix.... (swatch below)  They had 8, and I bought all 8 with no particular project in mind.  I just fell in love with it and *had* to buy it.  Any ideas? - looks like I have a total of 800m / 400 grams.  I was thinking maybe a Clapotis?  But, thought I'd see if anyone else has any suggestions.  It's 50% soysilk / 50% wool.

7  Really want to make a nice, big felted bag w/ Noro Kureyon.... in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by Locutus137 on: June 30, 2006 09:41:27 PM
I want to invest in the yarn and make a bag I can really get a lot of use out of.... I typically carry this bag (use it as my diaper bag and purse), so need something large like it.... it is 16" x 12" x 6 " not including handles.  I also like the shape of this bag - I was thinking of buying another in a different color, but thought I'd try making a similarly shaped/sized one myself.  Can anyone point me towards a pattern and advise how many skeins I should need?

I was thinking of buying this pattern, but just doing it in Kureyon rather than the 2 different yarns.

8  Mason Dixon Dishcloth & a few "Spa" Cloths in Knitting: Completed Projects by Locutus137 on: June 29, 2006 11:23:34 AM
I love knitthing dishcloths & washcloths.  They're quick and have a lot more character than store bought IMHO.  Plus, I just really love getting tons of use out of handknits. 

I did this one and have another one on the needles but got sidetracked knitting fish. This one is done in Sugar & Cream yarn - colors are black and hot pink. Next one I'm doing is a really eye boiling yellow and orange.

Pattern can be found at http://cache.lionbrand.com/patterns/BK4K-0605001.html. I really like these for washcloths - probably too thick for a dishcloth, but that's just a matter of preference. These are nice and sloughy. =)  Done in various shades of Sugar & Cream and Peaches N Cream.

9  Re: Tesselated Fishies Afghan KAL? in Knitalongs by Locutus137 on: June 29, 2006 11:12:09 AM
Here's my progress.  I went ahead and seamed 2 strips together so it's not so much finishing at the end.  I haven't had much time to work on it as our baby was in & out of the hospital for 5 days.  So, I've got 18 fish done.   This is with absolutely no blocking and it's not really looking like it will need much if any.  This is laid out on a king sized bed, so it's going to be a pretty good size.  Sorry for all the wrinkles, I threw off the comforter because it was too busy for a backdrop.  =)  Again, taken with my phone, so not the greatest quality pics, but you get the idea.

10  Counterpane Carpet Bag from Handknit Holidays in Knitting: Completed Projects by Locutus137 on: June 29, 2006 11:04:58 AM
I actually did this with Sinfonia mercerized cotton, double stranded. And did 4 repeats instead of 5. So, it came out smaller (which is what I wanted) - It is 11" tall x 12" wide at widest part. I lined it with one of the millions of vintage pillowcases I had lying around the house.  I made this as a Mother's Day gift and am just now getting around to posting photos.
