11  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Alabama Chanin leotard for aerial performance on: April 20, 2011 07:55:32 AM
I love the Alabama Chanin books and have wanted to incorporate the handiwork into one of my aerial silks leotards.  I think this took about two weeks of me works on it every night and I love it.  I don't really consider it "finished" though because I think, over time, I'll add more beads/sequins here and there.  The handiwork is one on the leotard, I wear separate, plain legging to protect my legs from getting burned.  Also, the stencil is from the first AC book.  (Unfortunately, I can't find any shots of my just standing, not performing, to get a good view of the leotard... meh.)

Update:  August 2, 2011
So, I added on to my costume!  There are some sequin flowers, a dangly trim around the thighs, and some fabric flowers that I also beaded and painted some fabric shimmery stuff on.  Even better than before:


(This was photo shoot from the other day with Holly Himawari, for a SCAD project.)

12  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Cabled pullover (from free, online pattern) on: January 11, 2011 02:14:34 PM
The pattern is from Lion Brand's website and is free (http://www.lionbrand.com/patterns/L0187AD.html?noImages=0&r=1&r=1), however there are errors.  They've updated some of the errata, but there's a lot more than what's available on the pattern page, so be warned (you can check out my Ravelry project page to see some of the errors I found and how I corrected them:  http://www.ravelry.com/projects/TheYarnBearer/cabled-pullover-and-cowl)).  But for now, let's enjoy the cable goodness -

I used Malabrigo Worsted (Pearl colorway) and a smaller gauge.  I'm pretty happy with it, I wanted it more fitting than the pattern indicates, so I used US 8 needles throughout and knitted in the round.
13  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Bitter End Sweater - original! on: December 24, 2010 07:26:56 AM
I designed this sweater based on one I saw on Anthropologie.com (here's the inspiration:  http://www.anthropologie.com/anthro/catalog/productdetail.jsp?navAction=jump&id=19725464).  But after reading reviews, it's an unflattering a-line, so I made mine with a fitted waist.  I used Cascade Ecological Wool (2 skeins) and US 10 needles, circular/seamless from the bottom up.  It ended up being a pretty quick knit.  (Ravelry project page:  http://www.ravelry.com/projects/TheYarnBearer/bitter-end).

14  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Betty: Bolero with a vintage flair! on: August 03, 2010 05:24:19 PM
This took 6 skeins of Tahki Yarns' Replay (which is an awesome, recycled cotton).  It's a cropped shrug/bolero with a frilled hem and pleated sleeve caps.  I designed this one myself, I think I'd like to see it in wool (or alpaca), too.  That would be pretty sweet for the fall/winter (our winter's in Savannah are pretty mild).  More pics on the Ravelry page:  http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/betty-11

15  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Snow White in Mmmmalabrigo on: June 27, 2010 02:44:11 PM
I finished my Snow White sweater (pattern by Ysolda Teague), bust size 32".  I used just 3.25 skeins of the Malabrigo Worsted.

16  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / New Babeh (with free pattern link) on: June 27, 2010 02:40:11 PM
I designed this sweater for my friend who is expecting.  It's made with 2.5 skeins of Rowan Cotton Rope and is sized for babies up to 10 lbs.  You can grab the free pattern riiight here:  http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/new-babeh.  Enjoy!

I was able to knit this in just two day, but if you're in a rush and have the time, I'm sure it can be completed in a day.
17  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Sprout Sweater on: February 17, 2010 05:27:10 PM
I call this one Sprout.  It's a funnel neck, top-down, seamless child's sweater in Lamb's Pride Worsted (colorway 105 RPM Pink).  It took three skeins an was a quick knit.  I designed it myself and will make it a free pattern download on Ravelry (a nice, clean pdf file), in sizes 2/3 (4/5, 6/7).  I knit this one in size 6/7 for my daughter, it's long and roomy enough that she'll be able to wear it for a good while.

18  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Celeste Capelet on: February 04, 2010 04:02:19 PM
This is my own design, made with three skeins of Aslan Trends Del Cerro in a light silver color.  There's a bit of crochet at the top that makes a nice framing collar.  I'm pretty happy with it.

19  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Mrrrphmrrf Cowl part deux on: February 04, 2010 03:56:45 PM
I made another Mrrrphmrrf Cowl in brown (well, the color is Wood in Lion Brand's Thick & Quick).  Very fast, cozy knit. 

Only takes about 315 yards, which is awesome (and not terrible when you're on a budget, like me).
20  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Mrrrphmrrf Cowl on: January 03, 2010 05:28:53 PM
Designed this one after seeing some crazy couture knitwear, but we all know those things can seem very, uh, un-wearable.  So I toned it down and made something you wouldn't mind wearing in public.
