Thanks! I'm surprised that it came out pretty well! I love Anna Maria Horner! <3 there's other colorways of this print that I would love to make more things with! haha.
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Red Pencil Skirt on: May 09, 2011 01:00:12 AM
I made this quite a bit ago, but haven't been able to update it online.


and just for you folks the very unflattering action shot that you can only see part of the skirt in:

I wanted something classic, cute, sexy and jolly to wear to the little shindig I was hosting and decided to make myself a skirt. Sadly I never finished the suspenders but still love skirt. I used Anna Maria Horner Innocent Crush (Quilt Cotton) Woodcut Passion for the exterior & Anna Maria Horner Innocent Crush (Voile) in a light pink colorway. Both of these I got from http://www.fabricworm.com/

I sewn this baby up in one night. However, the lining isn't the....most beautifully sewn, it does the job well. It's all hold up rather well in the washer, which is a great relief to me. I get tons of compliments on it as well. Cheesy I got the pattern from www.Burdastyle.com . It's a print at home pattern. It's called Jenny Variation C - which is the suspenders I never made...haha. One day.

I was curious if y'all have checked out the newer fabric store in Paso Robles? It's on 13th st by Chubby Chandlers downtown.

It's pretty awesome. They have tons of quilting cotton there. Tons of modern fabrics & a whole section of Japanese imports. Plus the amount of oil cloth was almost sinful. It's pretty neat.

The girls there are so nice. Usually seem really busy, but willing to help you out. Just thought y'all would be interested. Cheesy
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Knit Hat with pattern on: February 25, 2011 05:29:33 PM
The other day I was traveling to meet some of his family. It only took me the day to make it, which is good for me. It's a double ribbed beanie that I called "double up on the rib, extra slouch on top. Please"

I've got directions on how to make it on my blog. Cheesy I'm pretty stoked on this since it is my first pattern I ever put online. Thought I'd share it with y'all. Here it is:

Double up the rib, extra slouch on top. Please.

Needle: US8 / 5.0mm

Yarn: Bulky 12ply Spud & Chloe Outer in Soapstone

Gauge: 12st x 18rw = 4″ st st


I use some kind of typical long tail cast on. I am one of those knitters who just uses 1 general cast on for most things. Probably not the most strategic, but aye, what can I say?

Cast on 60 sts.

Row 1: *K2, P2 -repeat from staras in do an awesome 22 rib.

Row 2:  *P2, K2 Repeat from star, I know, totally surprising.

Repeat these 2 rows for about 4.5″.

Once you get to a stopping point (the end of the brim) its time for the fun Stockinette stitch.

Row3: Knit all.

Row4: Purl all.

I do recommend to slip the first stitch of each row to make for a smoother side for hemming.

Repeat for about 2.5″ Time to decrease.

Row 5: *K8, K2tog Repeat all the way through

Row 6: Purl.

(for all even/wrong side rows you will purl)

Row 7: K7, K2tog

Row 9: K6, K2tog

Row 11: K5, K2tog

Row 13: K4, K2tog

.Im sure you are seeing a pattern now.

Row 15: K3, K2tog  - Row 17: K2, K2tog Row 19: K1, K2tog


Row 21: K2tog all stitches, leaving 6 on needle.

Cut a long tail for weaving about 3 times the length of the hat. Run the end through the remaining stitches. Now use the rest of the end to hem the hat together. I do this with the wrong side facing me. Now I am going to admit I am not to good at this, I always seem to jack it up somehow and one side is higher. I hope, you have more patience than me. Haha.

Now since I used a Cotton blend, the hat is a bit stiff. I would recommend using a larger needle 1-2 sizes larger after the brim to give it more of a relaxed slouch. I would love to see your finished hats! This pattern is now available on Ravelry if you would like to cast on there.

As a warning, this pattern has not been test knit. So please, please, please feel free to tell me if theres any information is wrong. Hope you enjoy this pattern well!

8  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Re: Retropolitan Cardigan for my boooyfrin on: January 31, 2010 04:46:56 PM
why wasn't he thrilled?! i love it, and think it looks great on him! i wish i could get my boyfriend to wear a cardigan!
I think it's because he has these butthole friends who always say he looks "gay" in the stuff I give him.
I think he likes it though.
In his little heart. Somewhere. He loves it. Cheesy

Oh, and thank you. Smiley
Maybe when your boyfriend gets in touch with his inner Mr. Rogers, he'll wear a cardigan.

So in other words his friends are jealous that their friend has a girlfriend that loves him enough to spend tons of time making amazing sweaters?

I'm soo jealous! I don't have the patience to knit a sweater, just beanies and scarves for me. hehe. (well atleast im trying to make patterns though so i don't feel so rookie)

The color combo and sizing seems pretty right on too!

Had the same prblm for the first couple of rows then I realized I needed to twist the yarn together before switching the color. It says that in the first book. Does that make sense?

Whatever you didn't twist and where it still seperates I'm sure you can just sew em together on the ws
