1  Bunch of Semi-New FOs! Coachella and Raglans- Image Heavy in Knitting: Completed Projects by punkcatknitter on: August 07, 2007 09:17:41 PM
Hi. *waves* First FO post here.

First up, my latest (that I have pictures of) Coachella:

I knit this in about four days using SWTC Bamboo in Electric Blue, double stranded. It only used just over two balls! I really do love it, I just wish I'd skipped the short rows so it wasn't so indecent. At some point I'm going to knit a matching piece of lace or something so I don't have to wear a tank underneath. I would have ripped it out except I really wanted to wear it to the Hanson concert I was taking my nephew to that weekend. (He's nine and it was his first concert. He had a ball)

Next up, my self designed cable raglan tank (I really need a better name) :

I cast on with an idea and winged it. I've had a little interest for the pattern, so I'm trying to write one up that makes sense. I used about 3 1/2 balls of Cotton Ease in Popsicle Blue (I believe).

Last, a simple striped raglan out of leftover yarn:

Let me know what you guys think! I'll have been knitting for two years in October... Smiley

Amusingly enough I'm just popping in here to FINALLY post a picture of my pink and black striped raglan. Hee.

Since the next challenge is cables, I'll also post the pictures of my first designed sweater. At some point in the next couple days I'm going to blog about it, and if there's interest, I'll post a pattern (or at least a formula for it, I believe in frequent try ons and adjusting the pattern to fit your own body).

Here's the pics:

3  Seven Hour Cable Vest! Anyone with me? in Knitalongs by punkcatknitter on: February 27, 2007 03:54:27 PM

I've been looking at this vest for awhile, lured in by the 'seven hour' part as well as my cable obsession. Anyway, I've got ten skeins of Classic Elite's Star (Cotton/Lycra blend) that seems like it would be perfect, since there's no shaping it will give the vest a little shape.

I have a feeling its going to be more of a tank top (and I plan on deepening the V neck if I can figure it out).

Anyway, anyone else want to try this one with me? Or have already knitted it? I searched around, but didn't find any FOs. I'd love to have some support.

There's my progress as of a couple days ago... I really should have used chunky instead of worsted yarn... that's what happens when you're too lazy to properly check what kind of yarn to use. lol. So the cables are thinner and there's more space between them, but the person that's getting this bag will love it, so that's all that really matters.
