21  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: my monotone two tone shrug...... on: October 16, 2007 09:21:50 PM
I looove it!  And...I think the fit is the best part.  Usually shrugs fit so tight on people that they look ill.  So skanky.  And especially being knit if it were tight it would take away from the beauty of design. 

Now...if only I had one like it to wear to my cousins wedding on the 3rd!  I just bought a dress for only $22 on sale and I can't bring myself to spend $50 on a shrug to wear with it!  Kinda defeats the purpose of the bargain I just got!

Thanks!  It's an Alexander Henry fabric.  Every time I fall in love with a fabric I check and - I swear - more than likely it is an AH.  Such great prints!

That is soooo beautiful!  I just taught myself how to knit two weeks ago (so far I've made two scarves, two handbags and am making a hat in the round) and I am adding this on my list of must makes!  Hopefully before too long I'll be ready to try this 'cause I have a niece coming on Leap Day! 

Love it!!!  Grin

So....I wanted to share my latest creation with you!  I actually made it last Tuesday afternoon/evening and have been using it all week, but I just got a new camera and have been too busy knitting and making costumes for Halloween and going to the Covered Bridge Festival to install the new software, but I got it done today!

Anyhoo.....TMI.....here is the bag:

Closeup of handle

Closeup of the material (I was so in love when I saw it!!!)

So...that's it!  I used a pattern (McCall's M4936) as a starting point, but I added material to the top and bottom, changed the handles and lined my way, so really it was just an inspiration.  I don't do patterns too well!  LOL

They are all great shirts.  I especially love your sensibility with the fabrics.  I totally can see your thought process with those! 

Also...your hair is freakin' adorable!  I have hair-envy and I wanna cut mine now!!!  LOL

What do you like to do?  Or learn or collaborate or do?  I'd love to have someone to craft around!
27  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: Raspberry, cabled sweater with puff-sleeves (a bit pic heavy) on: October 07, 2007 06:27:12 AM
That is prettty much the most amazing little sweater!  OMG!  I am in lust with it!

And now I have the song "Rasberry Beret" stuck in my head...I think you should make one to wear with!  Tres chic!  THIS ROCKS!!!

Okay...I finally got around to teaching myself to knit and I'm hooked!  I love it - something I can make and take anywhere! 

Anyone still interested in a group?  I sew, make paper, bookbind, draw, paint and now I knit......I pretty much just like to create.  Anyone else want to join up?

I can't wait to see pictures of this all!  It's amazing the way we all kind of feel so much a part of such a fun and creative part of your wedding. Weddings rule!

Also I wouldn't put in blue flowers - because blue flowers aren't actually found in nature but are manufactured/engineered - I would steer clear from them.

Not to be all know-it all or snarky...but have you ever been to Brittany, France?  The hydrangeas there are notorious for coming up in extremely different colours.  I've been there and seen them for themselves.  And I happen to have made a particularly amazing arch out of blue hydrangeas.  (Actually, I made a purple/pink and a white/pink one too, but I digress...)  And I am sure blue flowers do grow naturally other places. 

And no one (or hardly no one) will notice the thing about the blue flowers.....the do coordinate really beautifully and look divine!!!
