1  Coquette Lace Tube Top and Cropped Cardi in Knitting: Completed Projects by Steffania on: September 13, 2007 05:58:10 PM
Here is my coquette lace tube top from fitted knits
I bought this knit picks elegance for something else, but i didn't have enough, so i threw caution to the wind that cast on for the tube top. I'm suprised that it fits and that I actually plan on wearing it.

I also recently completed this cropped cardigan. The pattern is from Blue Sky Alpacas, and I used Knit Picks andean treasure in embers. It was a simple top down raglan with ribbing instead of waist shaping. I wasn't too sure about it until after it was blocked. Now I am stoked.

There are more pictures and details on my blog. I hope you like these.

Here is my Coquette  Lace Tube Top.
I used Knit Picks Elegance, and I think my guage was a little off, even though I went down a needle size. It's the second project I've done from the book. Now, if only I could find buttons for my puff sleeve cardi...

i went on a stashbusting mission a couple weeks ago
here are the fruits of my labor

most came from odd balls that i had lying around or bought at a recent yarn sale
it was a lot of fun, but i still have so much stash left

details for some of the projects are available on my blog

Ok, I finished my Danica.

So now I'm swatching for the Puff Sleeve Cardi.
I think I'm making progress so far.

I'm so glad everyone is sharing what they're working on. It's been fun seeing what everyone is into this season.

Woohoo! I finally finished mine. This is actually the second Danica I've made, but my first is sitting up in Philadelphia, not quite finished, while I am in Raleigh with a finished one. I made mine a bit wider and used 4 balls of Noro Silk Garden that I go on sale at my LYS. I'm still not sure how I feel about the colorway. I'll have to try it on with some jackets when I get home. Enjoy.

Oh, so so much to make, such little time

Already made Natty from Knit and Tonic

On deck:
Danica in 4 skeins of Silk Garden (1/2 way done!)
Textured Tunic from Fitted Knits
Puff sleeve cardigan from Fitted Knits
Cabled Yoke Cardigan from IK fall

I'd also like to make a skirt, but I doubt I'll have time
I'm also working on holiday gifts

These socks finally inspired me to try knitting socks.

Here's my progress on the first one.

I totally splurged on the koigu, but I've really enjoyed seeing what other's have done with different yarns, especially since I'm sure I'll make another pair. I adore knee socks.

8  Natty and some other scarf and hat in Knitting: Completed Projects by Steffania on: August 15, 2007 05:49:09 PM

Let me just say, I love this set. Designed by Wendy of Knit and Tonic, it's quick, easy, great first cabling, and perfect perfect perfect for fall (which is just around the corner thankfully). I used three balls of Rowan Soft Tweed, which came from WEBS on the cheap. It only took a few days to get the whole thing together. Details on my blog http://pinsneedles.blogspot.com/2007/08/fall.html#links

I also knit this lovely set from 3 skeins of Malabrigo I bought at the LYS.

It's a bday gift for a friend, so there's nothing on my blog yet. I don't want him to accidentally stumble across it. I'm really excited for it. It started off as just a scarf. I like the vertical stripes as something different. I just dropped and later picked up colors as I needed them. Turns out I had plenty leftover so I made a hat using Kim's Hats patterns from Last Minute Knitted Gifts.

9  Le Slouch! in Knitting: Completed Projects by Steffania on: February 15, 2007 06:56:38 PM
I loved this knit and tonic pattern so much that I made two!<p>

The first one is made from classic elite city city lights. I used about a ball and 2/3rds and followed the pattern exactly, except on smaller needles, since I am a very loose knitter.
The second is from a leftover ball of cascade 220. I used maybe half a ball, but needed to modify the pattern and needle size a bit in order to get it juuuuuust right.
I love them both, and have gotten tons of compliments so far. Perfect for sprucing up winter.<p>

i've been following this KAL closely, but didn't think I'd get a chance to cast on for a while (way too many WIPs), but when I stopped at the LYS the other day to buy some needles i found some noro silk garden light on sale
what can i say? i'm addicted
