1  Re: Anyone make things like this??? in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by neekie on: September 22, 2007 07:53:02 AM
Wow, I have to agree, even I skein of really good cashmere would not be $275.00. 
I think the pattern is a twisted knit pattern.  You could try this:

Knit row:  Knit through the back of the loop across
Purl row:  Purl

I think this will give you that zig-sag look. 

holy crapcakes! shoulda known that they'd sell something so small, and -easy to make- (hand knitted on a loom too!) for $20938219419847. I mean, I could buy enough cashmere to knit me a sweater.

the tiny swatch (debbie bliss cashmerino aran)

judeh22 you are absolutely right, i thought this was herringbone stitch at first but it's simply 1 row ktbl, 1 row purl!

hope the photo is clear enough to see.. it's curling that's why i had to pin it down. wonder if it will even block out completely flat.. (e.t.a: i think the real pidge is double knit, so this wouldn't be a problem. hmm)

2  Minimalist cardigan! :) (pic heavy) in Knitting: Completed Projects by neekie on: September 08, 2007 10:58:09 PM
First cardigan ever, really happy Cheesy

It's a really easy pattern, no waist shaping to worry about. Miles of moss stitch though, I don't think I'll touch anything that requires K1 P1 for some time!

This is knit with Jo sharp silkroad aran tweed yarn, on size 6 needles instead of size 7, I knit the 34" size in a smaller gauge to get a 32". I also made it an inch longer.

(also, WTH do you do with your hands when you pose for a photo?! I've got no idea where to put them, that's why it always looks like I'm trying to grab at something sorry Roll Eyes )

ETA: Oops forgot to say this is the minimalist cardigan by Ruthie Nussbaum, it's from interweave knits fall '07

4  Woohoo! Knitty's thermal, sans sleeves. (pic heavy) in Knitting: Completed Projects by neekie on: August 10, 2007 09:06:24 PM
I loved Knitty's thermal pattern, but I've never knit a sweater before and I knew I'd never have enough patience to knit a long-sleeved sweater on size 3 needles. Thus I present.. the thermal vest!

I'm really happy with how this turned out cos it was my first time trying any armhole and neckline shaping of any kind and I had to fudge it a bit. This is knit with DK weight yarn (Patons Zhivago, half tencel half acrylic) on size 6 needles, and it only took me a week and a day. Cheesy

Cheesy So I can't join without showing a photo right?

This is what waffle stitch looks like in huuuuuge gauge (DK weight yarn, size 6 needles)

It's yummy and squishy. I started knitting this on sunday and I'm 7 inches in Smiley My plan is to knit furiously til I reach the placket instructions, then try to figure it out from there (not planning very far ahead am I?)

Here's my finished lelah! It's a bit loose at the top, I think I need to tighten the elastic more.. But not too discouraging for my second wearable garment, didn't have to rip it out at least Smiley

Okay I know I'm reaaaaaaaaally late to the entrelac party.. but I just wanted to share that you don't have to spend $239814871423234 on noro (if you don't want to), I found Sean Sheep Armytage at big W and it works brilliantly for entrelac! It's 100% wool too, and it's not scratchy at all, though it's a single ply so it's kind of tricky to knit with,though I have no complaints for $3 a ball. Enjoy! Cheesy Cheesy

Steezah and punk is the new blog - I had to rip and re-start my razor cami 3 times (My swatch LIED TO ME!!!) so I feel your pain..

Anyway we have some vague semblance of sun today, so here are pictures. Smiley

the front.

the back!

I took a gazillion pictures trying to get one where I wasn't standing retarded or in the shadows.  Tongue Anyway I turned it into a halter top instead of a cami because the strap placement was kind of wide and I also didn't want to figure out what length the straps should be to sew down. I'm happy, it's my first garment and I deem it wearable! And it looks like icecream. Yummy.  Cheesy

Okayy here are the pics! I'm generally not a big fan of how variegated yarns knit up (they always look so pretty on the skein and disappointing when you knit it) - I'm still deciding whether the variegated-ness and the lace pattern sort of goes. I'm okay with it for now..

and a close up..

I'm using yarn that was a gift - It's 100% cotton from Italy. I only have 2 100g skeins, I've already used one and the WIP is 9.5" - I'm living on the edge  Roll Eyes

I want to knit a Lelah next, after seeing all the recent finished ones.. What I'm doing knitting tanktops in the middle of winter (australia), I've no idea. At least I'll be prepared for spring  Cheesy

10  stitch pattern help! in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by neekie on: February 28, 2007 04:55:36 AM
Hi everyone.. I'm hoping someone can help me out here. I was recently gifted a handknit hat with this lovely stitch pattern:

hope it's clear enough from the picture. Anyway I have a burning desire to know what stitch this is, cos I'd like to use it.  Smiley Problem is that my boyfriend's Italian granny knit it for me and I can't ask her how to do it cos she doesn't speak English.

This is driving me nuts! I guess I'll go down to the library and try to pore over the stitch dictionaries if this doesn't look familiar to anyone..  Sad So does this look like something anyone's seen before?
