1  Anthropologie Caplet in Knitting: Completed Projects by sin_city_kitty on: June 24, 2007 02:29:34 PM

I used this craftster tutorial by julsey723 to make this caplet.  It turned out really well, I think.  I used a DK weight wool/bamboo yarn that I got while I was on vacation in England and US5 needles.  The only thing that I really changed about the pattern, other than the yarn and needles, was to use seed stitch for the border all the way around.

This picture was taken at a wedding that I attended this past weekend.  The sweater had not been blocked at this point because I had only just woven in the ends in the car on the way to the church.

I finished my hat yesterday and I love it.  I used cascade 220 superwash and knit the large size with smaller needles.  I went down one size and I love the slightly stiffer fabric it produces.  My hat  measures about the same size as my husbands size medium and it fits perfectly.

I was so excited to start this project.  I bought yarn and pattern last week and finally sat down to knit yesterday.  My husband was actually excited about me knitting this hat for him, which was totally cool because I have never knit for him before, so I decided to knit his before I did mine.  My gauge was spot on so I decided to jump right in.  The pattern was so easy to follow and the hat knit up really fast.  I was able to finish it last night and I let it block over night.  I was so excited about the hat that when I woke up this morning I ran to get it and made my husband try it on before he had even gotten out of bed. 

Now if anyone else is interested in knitting this fabulous hat pattern, I only have one piece of advise that I can give you.

Measure your husband's head BEFORE you knit the hat.

Version two coming soon.

I do have to say, Alice and Grace, this is a really great pattern and it's super easy to knit.  Good thing because I have two more to go, his again and mine.     Wink

Take Two.

Success!  I frogged the first hat and knit the medium size this time.  I was a little afraid that it would end up looking wonky because my stitches were a little uneven from knitting with the kinky frogged yarn, but it turned out okay after blocking.

4  Toe-up ankle socks in Knitting: Completed Projects by sin_city_kitty on: May 11, 2007 03:19:39 PM

I recently finished a pair of socks.  I used the universal toe-up pattern from knitty and wildfoote sock yarn that I dyed with Easter egg dye.  (check this out)  They're not terribly fancy, but I really like how they turned out.

Hey Alice,

Thanks for the great tutorial.  After I saw your gorgeous yarn I knew that I must try this.

This is what I came up with.

This is Wildfoote Luxury Sock Yarn (color vanilla) dyed with Paas easter egg dye.

This is also Wildfoote Luxury Sock Yarn (color vanilla) dyed with Paas easter egg dye.

This is white Cascade 220 dyed with Paas easter egg dyes.

I really enjoyed dying these yarns.  It turns out that the egg dye kits that I bought only had the primary colors in them, so I had to do some mixing, but I'm really pleased with the way that they turned out.
