11  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Monkeys!! on: May 28, 2007 08:03:00 PM
I made these for my piano teacher, but I really like them too.

Pattern: Monkey socks from Winter '06 Knitty
Yarn: Rowan 4 Ply Soft in a really nice warm mahogany color
Needles: Brittany Birch 1's (one of them broke though...)

I didn't like making these as much as I love the result, and they're also not as pretty solid as they are in handpainted yarn as I've seen others do, but I think that I'm okay with that.

More pics and chronicles of progress on my blog!

12  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / dashing for a picky guy on: May 02, 2007 09:27:53 PM
Okay, so I would like to knit some Dashing fingerless gloves (from Knitty's spring issue) for my friend Austin's birthday. I made him a hat awhile ago at his request out of some locally spun alpaca, which he wore a couple times and told me later that he found it a little itchy. I would really like to make him something that he'll like and actually wear (okay, so maybe I like him...). I've been thinking of using Lion Brand Cotton Ease because it wouldn't be limited to just winter (his birthday is in July), and I've heard that it's very soft and versatile. I'm just having trouble picking a color. The Lion Brand website had, of course, pictures of swatches of the different colors, but I know from previous experience not to trust my computer with color display. I also don't know what colors he really doesn't like. Which of them do you think I should choose?
13  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / my Swallowtail shawl on: April 25, 2007 04:27:55 PM

Pattern: Swallowtail Shawl from IK Fall '06
Yarn: KnitPicks Shadow in Sunset Heather
Total Knitting Time: 13 days (I was working on it every chance I got)

This is probably the most intricate thing I've ever attempted, and I'm very happy with it! I have a feeling that it'll be a very special keepsake to me in the future.
Oh! How lovely the design is! I can't help but stare at all of the different patterns and lace.

More details and pics on my blog, thanks for looking!
14  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / beret, entrelac clutch, and slipper socks, all self-designed! on: April 25, 2007 01:28:39 PM
I finished these few things a while ago in an intermittent period between big projects and forgot to post about them!
Here's the beret, it was for my friend who's going to France in a few weeks...

I also had a skein of Patons SWS lying around and remembered all the pretty entrelac things I've seen on here made with it, so I made a clutch for another friend:

And finally, I wanted to try out knitting socks from the toe up, so I made these, called the Summersocks (after the Decemberists' awesome 'Summersong')...

Sorry for the blurry pic! It's really hard to take a good picture of your own foot. The yarn I used for these was some stash Blue Sky Organic Cotton (ultra soft but pretty much lacking any natural elasticity) and size 6 needles.

Thanks for looking!  Smiley
15  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / "The Office" Swap on: March 29, 2007 09:02:23 AM
I've been trying to search on here and find out if there's been previous swaps done themed on the show called "The Office." I personally think it's a great idea, but since I've only done one before I can't really start one. I personally think it's an awesome show and love crafting things for people!
16  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / and how are you this evening....Mrs. Darcy? on: March 27, 2007 01:02:49 PM
This is a cardigan that I designed. I love it so much.

The yarn I used is called Spinnerin Alpine, I think it's sort of vintage cause I haven't seen it in any yarn stores. I named this Mrs. Darcy, as in Elizabeth Bennet from Pride and Prejudice, after she married Mr. Darcy (who is completely charming and dashing I might add). I like the book way better than the movie, but the movie is sweet, too. More photos and details and chronicles of progress on my blog.

Thanks for looking!
17  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / top down raglans on: November 27, 2006 04:21:25 PM
I've been noticing a heck of a lot of people making top-down raglans on here but every time they just say that they used the tdr formula. I've been searching for tutorials on making a custom, top-down seamless pullover, but it's been to no avail. Where has everyone else been getting their information?
18  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Help finding a pattern please! on: November 13, 2006 01:20:28 PM
I found a really cute sweater on the website for this store called dELiA*s, but it's really expensive (at least for me), so I thought I'd look around and try to find a way to knit one myself. Does anyone have any patterns to suggest, or maybe a modified top-down raglan tutorial?

19  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / hat, scarf, and mittens...oh, and a sophie! on: October 31, 2006 04:54:39 PM
I haven't posted anything of my own on here in awhile, so here goes. The hat and mittens took one skein of Lamb's Pride Bulky altogether, and the scarf is one I made a long time ago but I still had some of the yarn left so I thought, why not make these into a set? So I made a crochet chain and wove it through the eyelets where ribbon would normally go.

And here's the Sophie bag (from MagKnits) that I felted yesterday:

20  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / help finding a cute all-purpose cardigan! on: October 31, 2006 03:55:14 PM
Ok so I've been looking around at all the sites I can find and I can't seem to find a cardigan that I like. Does anyone have a good pattern suggestion for a teen-girl-type sweater?
