I can be dorkalicious too!

I made this for the BiL.  Can't debute it on the bloggy thing yet because, well, he's now a reader.  D'oh!  Made from a kit purchased from the wonderful Emisanboo at Wear With Style.  Thanks chicka!

2  Swallowtail Lace Shawl! in Knitting: Completed Projects by turtlegirl76 on: December 04, 2006 05:43:27 AM

Pattern: Swallowtail Lace Shawl from Fall '06 Interweave Knits
Yarn: Elsbeth Lavold Silky Wool it's a dark navy blue I don't have the color number. It took just over 2 hanks.
Needles: US 8
Started: October 12th
Finished: December 2nd.

This is my first lace shawl and it took me a while because I only worked on it on Sundays for the most part.  I took a class to get me through this as my first lace shawl was a complete disaster.  Now that I've finished this successfully, I'll be going back to that first shawl.  I will not let Adamas defeat me!

For the nupps, I did a Sl3 P2tog psso instead of the p5tog.  Because I had no interest in slowly driving myself insane.

Wow.  I made one of these last Christmas for my mother and have been meaning to make another one for me ever since!  I'll be heading back up to the great white north for Christmas so I'd better get cracking!  I love the handpainted ones in the recent pages. 

This is the one I made for my mom.  The yarn is Joann's Sensations Angel Hair.  Cool color!  She wears it all the time from what she tells me.  (Meaning she probably has worn it a dozen or so times.)

I made my fetchings with fingers.  Do you have The Knitter's Handy Book of Patterns?  (If you don't, you should - it's an excellent resource for such things!)  I simply found the glove with the appropriate stitch count and followed the directions for fingers, stopping when I got to the knuckle.  I did an i-cord bind-off just for kicks.  I'm pretty happy with the results.

5  Shedir! in Knitting: Completed Projects by turtlegirl76 on: November 29, 2006 05:11:14 AM
By far the most challenging thing I've knit to date.

This is from the Breast Cancer Awareness edition of Knitty.com.  I made it for my BiL and will be presenting it to him for Christmas.  Rest assured, it is a dark blue, not purple as the red lamp behind me would have you believe.

Pattern:  Shedir
Yarn:  Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino (1 and some balls)
Needles:  US 3
Mods:  Omitted one repeat of the main cable pattern

More pics and evidence of just how insane I really am can be found On My Blog Post.  Truly, one of the knits I am most proud of.

6  Re: "Fetching" from Knitty: Summer 2006 in Knitalongs by turtlegirl76 on: October 24, 2006 01:10:35 PM
I just finished mine last night!

Thanks to this thread, I was inspired to make the following changes:

1) Knit on Size 4 dpns to snug it up
2) Knit 7 cable twists to lengthen them
3) Added a thumb gusset
4) Added fingers!

I did a 2 stitch i-cord bind off on the fingers and love how it all came out.  I used the Knitter's Book of Handy Patterns to figure out my fingers.  More pics on my blog

Screw the Tilly Thomas!  Why use that when you can sub a perfectly good yarn?  Like, say, Berroco Denim Silk?

My mods:

I opted to do only 10 rows of the neck detail, then bound off purlwise so it would match the other bound off edges.

I did 20 straight rows after picking up the sleeve stitches so the lace panels would line up.

I am so in love with this sweater.  I used 12 hanks of the Denim Silk (plus about a foot of another to finish binding off the neck - grr) and I knit the medium.  As you see, it's a bit roomy but that's intentional.  The gauge was a bit off but I'm happier with a roomy fit.

I would post this over in completed projects, but I haven't seen other SKBs over there, so I'll leave it just here.  I have also blogged it HERE

8  Plymouth Royal Bamboo Lacey Camisole and Shrug in Knitting: Completed Projects by turtlegirl76 on: September 18, 2006 08:14:19 AM
I just finished this yesterday!  It's from the August Issue of Knit 'n Style magazine.  I did the 36" size and together with the shrug, only used about 10 1/2 balls of the Royal Bamboo.  It's color #40.  It was a quick knit, and other than the yarn being a wee splitty, and the shrug pattern being edited down to a near indecipherable length, an easy knit.

Unfortunately, I don't have nearly the post count here as I do on the knittyboards, so I can't post pics yet.  But you can see it in all it's glory HERE for now.

Well, seems you've sucked me in fast enough today that pics can now be done.
