3  stripy top "paris" in Knitting: Completed Projects by prettyknit on: December 03, 2007 07:19:48 AM
I found this lovely round button few month ago and I wanted to do a top that will really show off the button, I thought a stripy top with a side button will be perfect. Is a simple top down raglan top, but still I have make a mistake by knitting it open at the button side. At the end I have to seam it back and add on a button loop on each button placement so that the seaming line is less visible.Beside the button open, I have quite a hard time doing the stripe since I choose to knit the top in round. I follow Meg Swansons jogless stripe tutorial however, it didnt turn out as good as I expected, the sts somehow still a bit joggedlucky I done the joining at the side. you can see the awful join on my blog http://windloop.wordpress.com

4  puffy wicked in Knitting: Completed Projects by prettyknit on: November 03, 2007 05:54:43 AM

Recently I am obsess about puff sleeve..I turn the Wicked sweater into puff sleeve Wicked. It take me quite awhile to finish this sweater because:
First, I did a wrong size.
Second, wrong gauge( didnt swatch).
Thirdly, added 4 sts on each underarm( trying to avoid the hole)

..so end up I redo the 3/4 of body part twice and I have to decrease about 40 sts right from underarm just to make it fitted.  As for the puff sleeve, I just add 2 sts every 3 row until it puff enough and do a sudden decrease.

6  chenille cloche in Crochet: Completed Projects by prettyknit on: September 26, 2007 07:43:52 AM

Recently..I have crochet fever

I have my eye on this pattern-http://www.flickr.com/photos/98762762@N00/1424013406/ since I saw it but I never thought I would make it until recently. I have a bit of problem doing this hat, my gauge is totally run off when I half way through and I dont keen on redo the whole thing since this yarn is not tolerate as other yarn, each time I pull out the yarn it get thinner. So, I omitted a few row of increase and thats the trouble appear, the hat turns out totally different from the pattern,detail on my blog www.windloop.wordpress.com

7  No more mess.. my knitting basket. in Knitting: Completed Projects by prettyknit on: August 11, 2007 07:25:06 PM
Where did you put your yarn and needles when you knit?..well, mine always lying around on the sofa or front of the television. Every time I walk in the door, I see a pile of yarns, needles or books here and there. Is actually quite disturbing, and I dont want to keep it in the room before I finish it. So, I decided to make a felt basket. The knitting work out quite fast but the felting process is a bit painful for me since my washing machine dont work with hot water, I have to felt it by hand. After two hour trying to felt and shrink it my hand actually suffer for next two day..thats not all...detail at my blog http://windloop.wordpress.com/

8  Finish, I finish my noro scarf in Knitting: Completed Projects by prettyknit on: August 04, 2007 12:51:23 AM
Finish, finish.yes, I did scream out loud when I finished this scarf..ha..ha. and I was so excited. When I first saw this scarf in Brooklyn Tweed, I was totally in love with it. I knew I have six balls of Noro Kureyon on my stash and I have no idea what do to with it.. still I wasnt so sure would in came out the same result as I use single colourway instead of different colourway. Anyhow, I decided to give it a go since I dont want to spend money on buying another colour. I have more detail explanation on my blog http://windloop.wordpress.com/2007/08/04/finish-finishi-finished-it/ on how to use single colourway on striped

9  Fad green in Knitting: Completed Projects by prettyknit on: July 23, 2007 02:29:34 AM

I guess this is the first time I actually followed a pattern without making any changes. I even use the suggested yarn..The only things I wish I done different is the neckline, I should pick up more stitches, is bit stretch out now..

10  shopping tunic in different yarn in Knitting: Completed Projects by prettyknit on: July 13, 2007 10:59:40 PM
I have this pattern on my old issue of Vogue knitting magazine, never thought that I would want to knit it until I saw a few people making it.. Instead of using the recommended yarn, I change it to Rowan cotton tape which is more suitable to where I live.. Beside the yarn I have also add on the length and I knit it from top down and inside out. The top knit up quite fast as well even though I change the gauge to much smaller than the pattern.
