1  Re: Anthropologie-inspired capelet- By julsey723 in Knitalongs by Illanna24 on: November 15, 2005 04:54:24 PM
Hi everyone! I found this shrug pattern and knitalong last night. I knit all night on the shrug, and finished it at 3AM! The yarn is Lobster Pot Bulky, and handspun from My Paper Crane. It didn't drape right with the pin at the neck, so I added buttons on the bottom part. I pull the buttons through the stitches, because I didn't add buttonholes. The knitting is loose enough that the buttons fit right through.

Thanks for posting the pattern Julsey!

I also would recommend the tiny circulars. I've seen people with big hands and with small hands knit with them very easily. I got mine from this online seller for only $4.50:

8" circulars:

12" circulars:

The needles are listed in Japanese sizes. There is a Japanese-American needle conversion chart here:


Size 3 in the US is size 4 in Japan, as you will see in the chart.

Here's the cabled purse I made from LMKG using handspun sockweight yarn:

Thanks for all the compliments! Sorry for the link that didn't work. Here are the pictures of my Loop-d-Loop garments:

From left to right: Steek Tank (p. 104) morphed with Ballet Tee, Corkscrew scarf (p. 20) made from Noro Kochoran, Ibiza Stripe shirt (p.143) made from Manos Cotton Stria. I wear a tank top under the steek tank and the Ibiza Stripe shirt, because I used a very loose gauge. The Corkscrew scarf was really fun and I think it would be a great intro to short rows.

4  Projects from "Loop-d-Loop" in Knitting: Completed Projects by Illanna24 on: May 20, 2005 07:46:19 PM
With so much buzz going on about Teva Durham's new book, I thought I'd start a thread. Here is my modified steek tank:

I used Sesia Bilbao (there's a picture of it here: http://photos1.blogger.com/img/190/1072/640/IMG_1142.JPG.jpg) which is a cotton tape yarn. I held two strands together to get gauge. I sort of made a metamorphosis of the ballet tee and the steek tank. I'll get a picture of myself wearing it sometime this weekend.

I already finished the knitting of the Ibiza Shirt, and I just have to seam and weave in ends.  My next project is going to be the ruffle scarf made with Noro Kochoran. Can you tell I'm obsessed with this book?

Has anyone finished any Loop-d-Loop projects?

5  Re: YARN DYEING 101 - KOOL AID in Dyeing: Completed Projects by Illanna24 on: April 21, 2005 08:27:26 AM
I just dyed some Knitpicks undyed merino sock yarn with Kool aid:

The pinkish part is Strawberry and the yellowish part is Mango with Lemon.

I also dyed this one with Kool-aid:


I made the hank very big so that it would be self striping. The yarn is Kitten mohair. I wasn't sure if it would dye, because it's 50% acrylic and 50% wool-mohair. It worked, but it's light. It came out sort of pastel.

I just finished my cleo! I used Soy Silk Phoenix which is a yarn made from the tofu making process! The website is www.soysilk.com and I got the yarn on sale directly from Southwest Trading Company. It's great to work with and it was easy to get gauge. Just thought I would share my excitement with everyone :-)

Hey there! I made this sweater after drooling over yours on this thread. I used some hand dyed wool from www.woolsoup.com and the size medium pattern. I didn't put in the ribbon yet, but I think I definitely will.

8  Legwarmers from Last Minute Knitted Gifts in Knitting: Completed Projects by Illanna24 on: January 21, 2005 03:11:30 PM

I used Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece in a grey color and Rowan Kidsilk Haze in a pale blue color. I made the pattern a little shorter because I'm only 5'2", and it took 1 skein of each. If you are making them for a taller person, you'll need two skeins of each.

I finished the Hourglass Sweater!!!

I used Noro Lily which is 70% cotton and 30% silk and I used size 9 circular needles. I like the Cash Iroha, but it's too heavy to wear here in Arizona...

There are a LOT of mistakes in this pattern, and the errata on the website didn't even have all of them. Luckily I kept Purl Soho's phone number on my speed dial and I called Joelle anytime I had a question. She was REALLY sweet and helpful and I would highly recommend doing this if you have questions about the patterns in the book.
