1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / is it cold in central park? on: November 14, 2007 09:41:08 AM
because my central park hoodie finished blocking on a day when it is in the mid-70s (which is nice weather, to be sure) and i can't wear it. 

however, it's probably my favorite sweater that i have ever made!  i can't decide if  i want to put in a zipper or a clasp -- maybe i'll have to wear it a time or two first to make up my mind. 

i did modify the pattern a tad.  i made the sleeves waaaay longer and the body of the sweater a little longer.  i used classic elite renaissance yarn that i got on sale last year!!! 

anyway, here it is!

2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / getting a smoke smell out? on: February 01, 2007 02:39:45 PM
Has anyone had any luck getting the smell of cigarette smoke out of yarn?  I ordered some yarn online, and I forgot to ask if it was from a smoker or not.  It was.  It looks great and I'm totally satisfied with the transaction, but now...  I need to get the smell out!!!  Any ideas?
3  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / help me obi wan kenobi, you're my only hope... on: October 30, 2006 07:30:17 PM

I got the pattern from bleuarts.blogspot.com and sported my new 'do with my husband, Luke Skywalker (yeah, I know that's weird) to our Halloween party!


More antics of the costume on the blog.

4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / the leia hat on: October 29, 2006 05:04:49 PM
Since it is the Halloween season, I decided to knit the Leia buns.  Smiley  The coolest and warmest hat I have EVER worn!  Plus it was a fun costume.  Campy and funny but still cool!  I got the pattern from bleuarts.blogspot.com.

5  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / blackberry from knitty on: October 29, 2006 05:02:12 PM
I know this is a last year's pattern (fall '05), but I didn't start knitting until March, so I am just now making this!  I had read on Craftster somewhere and other places online that some knitters weren't happy with their results.  I am really happy with it -- I am hoping to replace some lighter coats with it.  I used the recommended Rowan Chunky Print in Temper.  The only modification was that I added about an inch of ribbing for more collar options (rolled over or standing up).  I could have made the smaller size, but I'm happy with this, considering that I will wear it as a jacket replacement!

Oh, and forgive that listless expression -- I had NO idea my tired face would be in that photo!

6  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / baby sweater? on: October 23, 2006 08:36:55 PM
I am looking for a baby sweater pattern that is cute and masculine in about a 12 month size so I can use up some of my Rowan Chunky Print.  Any suggestions?

7  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / scarf for my husband...what to do? on: October 14, 2006 11:52:11 AM
i started a scarf for my husband last night, and i hoped to finish, as well.  WELL, i ran out of yarn.  i thought i had bought two balls of rowan chunky print in native to use.  apparently i only had one, and it's not enough at all to make a scarf.  it has been discontinued, and i got it on a 50% off sale yesterday.  i was superexcited about making such a nice garment for my husband out of a high quality yarn, and then i was disappointed to return today to my LYS and they were totally out as well as all the other stores in town.  i asked him if he'd like a striped scarf and he said that no he'd rather have a solid, neutral that would go with everything.

i bought (randomly) two lamb's pride bulky skeins in different colors for some other things.  would one skein of lamb's pride bulky make one scarf or not?  would i be pushing it too much?  what do you think?  i don't want to knit away again only to find out that i haven't got enough yarn!  ugh, this shouldn't be so stressful!!!!

9  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / a few things i've recently made on: October 09, 2006 08:27:13 PM
Let's try this again with pics you can actually see!

I tried to make collar me from MagKnits, but it got a little large...  Still cool, though.

I also made a baby pixie hat (thanks for the link to pattern crazydoglady!) I also used Patons SWS.  One of my new fave yarns.

AND I also made Molly's headband from Interweave Knits. 

I also recently finished two sweaters, but that'll be another post later on!
