2  Re: Twinkle's Big City Knits Book Knitalong in Knitalongs by anky on: July 07, 2007 11:07:58 PM

Here's my best friend cardigan knitted with cleckheaton gusto 10 and minus the bobbles. I wanted to try one of the free patterns avaialbe online before committing to buying the book because I was concerned about how the bulky yarn would look on a frame that's not supermodel thin. I have now been reassured myself and ordered the book on amazon. Can't wait to knit some more of these patterns. Details on my blog.

Finally finished and I love it! This is by far my favouritest knit to date, thanks for the great pattern Calista. Knitting the body in the round certainly made it a lot quicker to knit and cut down on tedious seaming. I used Bendigo Woollen Mills 8ply Alpaca in Briar Rose. It's so soft and warm but sheds like crazy so I might give it a good bath to see if that settles the fibres down. More details on my blog.

4  Bergere de france translations anyone? in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by anky on: February 24, 2007 07:16:55 PM

I've fallen in love with this sweater from Bergere De France. Here's the link for the pattern http://www.bergeredefrance.fr/document/upload/tricotheque/bloc/193056_janv_270.pdf

It reminds me a lot of Calista's Alexander McQueen Knock Off Sweater. http://calistayoo.blogspot.com/2006/02/pattern-for-mcqueen-knock-off.html
If anyone knows french and is willing to translate it would very much be appreciated. I know there are french to english dictionaries and the like available however these have I have still never been able to completely and correctly translate a french pattern. I'm sure there are many other out there who would also love to knit this sweater.

I finished knitting this a few weeks ago so I thought I'd share my results with everyone doing the knitalong. I used Rowan Felted Tweed. More pics on ma blog...

6  Finished Molly Ringwald in Knitting: Completed Projects by anky on: October 08, 2006 12:53:37 AM

sans crochet edging and I love her! It turned out more vesty than corsety and the sleeves aren't as poofy as in the magazine but she will look cute over blouses and the like. I modifyed the pattern to knit in the round for minimal seaming. I plan to make another one further down the track and make her a little longer.

7  Help with French translation in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by anky on: September 12, 2006 05:41:25 PM

I bought some old phildar mags off ebay but they're all in french. I realyy really really want to make the sweater above but I need help with translation as i don't speak a word of french. Is anyone able to help? And should anyone that can help happen to keep a copy of the pattern (because they'd need to see it to translate) then that would be entirely out of my hands if you know what I'm saying*wink wink*

8  Simply Marilyn in Knitting: Completed Projects by anky on: August 27, 2006 09:05:15 PM

Here's my tribute to marilyn and the great Andy Warhol. I knitted it in aran alpaca and modified the gauge to get an extra small size. I also modified the neck as I'm not a fan of huge chunky necks. More details on my blog...

9  Re: help with multiple increasing in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by anky on: July 06, 2006 11:23:02 PM
No you knit a boarder of two stiches first then increase 5 stitches
I'm knitting one of the front pieces and the increasing is what makes it curve around at the bottom. Here's a picture to help

I don't think spreading the increases out over the row will work because then the curve won't be created and on alternate rows i have to decrease on the other side

one person suggest that I go this...

Knit to last 2 st from end of row. work back and forth this 2 sts for 5 times (K2, turn, P2, turn, K2, turn, P2, turn... etc) ending on a P2. Pick up 5 stitches along the 'strip' of extra bit knitted.

but I don't understand what they mean or how to do it?

10  Anyone speak French and know how to order from Phildar? in Knitting: Completed Projects by anky on: June 08, 2006 11:16:52 PM
OMG I want this pattern!!!!!!!!!

only problem is its on a french site www.phildar.fr and I can't figure out how to order/pay for things. There's about a thousand things on this site I want actually. *sigh* Anyone ever ordered from this site or know french and can figure out how to? Im pretty sure I could get a friend or use a dictionary to translate the patterns once I had them

I wish I spoke french Sad
