1  Re: Photographer's help (amateur or pro) needed! Picture included in Weddings and Bridal Showers by quikroxy85 on: January 02, 2008 12:00:02 PM
My FH's brother is an amateur photographer, and I got the idea from another person's "courtship story." Here is my photo:

2  Can anyone identify this hat pattern? in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by quikroxy85 on: June 29, 2007 10:32:42 AM
I am embarassed... I made this hat in March. I LOVED the pattern, but somehow did not save the pattern on my computer.

I know the link to the project is on here (and I think the person who designed it).
On the original pattern, the top is stockinette (but I stayed in pattern).
The bottom is seed stitch... *sigh*

It was a quick and FUN project and I'd like to make some for a friend going away to school but sadly I don't even remember the stitch pattern.

3  Maude Louise cardigan! in Knitting: Completed Projects by quikroxy85 on: June 25, 2007 09:20:36 PM
Wow, I finished! This is a great pattern, so easy to follow.
jejune did a wonderful job of designing this and writing the instructions (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=154869.0), and it was a quick and challenging first sweater for me.

The buttons are on only temporarily, and you can't really tell because of the flash but they are GREAT rose/flower metal buttons. I LOVE them. I will put them on permanently after I get this dry cleaned.

I am still waiting to figure out edging on the neck (I don't crochet).

I encourage EVERYONE to knit this great garment. There is a knitalong on here for it, and everyone there has nothing but praises for jejune's wonderful pattern! I know I will be watching out for other original things she designs for myself to knit Smiley

btw, I know the button band looks like one side is longer, but it's not. It's the (temporary) placing of the buttons!

You know what? When I measured it straight VS. curved it was only a difference of about 1/4 of an inch, so it probably doesn't make a huge diff. either way unless you're worried it might not fit anyways Smiley
my progress:

oh, BTW to me, bind and cast off is the same thing.

Progress picture:
(I just finished the second repeat of the pattern and have about 2.5" until I begin to shape the armhole)

I'm quite nervous about the shaping of the armhole/shoulder/back since I've never done something like that, but excited! Any tips anyone?

Here are some overdue pictures. Yarn, first progress shot, second progress shot (as of today) and my lattice "swatch" to get the hang of it!

Sorry about the difference in size in the pictures... I accidentally uploaded the big ones (I meant to do all thumbnails)

Okay here is my (almost) finished product!  (I still need to block and get the new ribbon/elastic)

I used some cotton yarn in light blue, and size four needles. I did a couple modifications, and instead of using crochet (which I horribly suck at!) I improvised. On the back, where it calls for a chain, I switched to size 0 needles and did the length of the back with that. I also didn't do the picot edging, as I read someone who did it in cotton as well didn't think it was necessary. I also reduced the side cast ons (from 50 to 45)

Last thing is I didn't use ribbon AND elastic, I used a piece that was both! Unfortunately, what I had on hand isn't exactly what I want (I think I'm leaning toward white?), but for the photo ops I used it.

Hope you enjoy (Oh, and DON'T TELL! but, I majorly screwed up. I think I got the round twisted the first row on the circs BUT with the scrunching done by the elastic/ribbony stuff you really can't tell... Whew!!).


Also, any suggestions? I had a BIG gap on EACH side (in between the front and the sides and the back and the sides) when I would begin the cable cast on. Maybe it's because I used a thumb loop as my first cast on stich? I have no idea... PLEASE help as I plan on starting a new one tomorrow!

My amazing stethoscope nametag modeled my none other than my handy-dandy stethoscope!

Everything is great and I can smell the green tea soap all the way around my room... so relaxing!

Done~ I turned this into a tank top by knitting I-cords to the top! It's a little big, so my idea for a tank top works even better! (or it'd most def. fall off without the straps!)
