1  Re: Question about knitted kitty in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by alicepalace on: May 21, 2007 06:25:17 AM
When I did this I did nine in total for the tail I think: this is my finished kitty so you can see the curly tail...

It sounds like it should be fine; if you have any excess you can just pull it out a little (google magic loop and you might get some pictures to help you visualise how this will work).

I just posted pics of mine but will put one here on the kal too!

I used Debbie Bliss Cathay and did an extra repeat for boob room.  The screw up under my armpit is where I dropped a load of stitches and then picked them up again.

3  Dress from a duvet cover in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by alicepalace on: May 05, 2007 08:44:54 AM
This is a dress I made from a duvet cover I got from Oxfam.  I dyed it purple and, weirdly, the dye only really took on the flocked parts, which has made them stand out a lot.  I used an existing dress as a pattern, but modified so it was more fitted around the waist.  The straight neckline went all to crap so I pleated it, and now it's a kind of sweetheart shape which I actually like more.  This was my first time putting in an invisible zip, which was a bit of a nightmare on my machine so I ended up doing it by hand.  I've also learnt the importance of remembering that my fabric has a repeating pattern on before cutting out the pattern pieces (the dress is symmetrically patterned now, but it wasn't originally!).

I can only apologise for this shot of my boobs; they're genuinely not so overwhelming in real life!

4  razor cami/ knitty kitty/ wave wrap (a lot of pics) in Knitting: Completed Projects by alicepalace on: May 05, 2007 08:31:04 AM
These are some things I've knitted recently...

firstly, my fluffy mohair knitty kitty:

a wrap I made for my friend's wedding, but didn't need because it was BOILING hot in London last week...

and finally my razor cami...

I used Debbie Bliss Cathay for this, which I really like.  It got a bit hairy at the end when I nearly ran out of wool: I only did two stitches wide on my icord and I finished the straps with two inches to spare!

5  Ear flap cable hat and cable jumper in Knitting: Completed Projects by alicepalace on: March 18, 2007 11:33:55 AM
I knitted this hat because, apparently, it's going to snow next week.  The pattern is here http://www.plasticsoul.org/18seconds.html.

This is my hat...

And just cobbled together my first wearable jumper out of the leftovers...

This is part of the Bergeres de France knitalong which is here https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=123489.0.

6  Re: Bergere de France cabled pullover - now translated! in Knitalongs by alicepalace on: March 18, 2007 11:24:35 AM
Ok here's my finished jumper...

This is a shot of the whole jumper so you can see the fit resulting from me doing a small for the waist and a medium for the bust (because of my giant comedy boobs)...

This is the short rows on the boobs: I'm so proud of not screwing this up hugely...

And this is a photo that shows the cables better and actually gives the right colour...

I used Bergeres de France Sport, and modified the pattern by changing sizes on the body sections to fit my stupid-shaped anatomy.  I'm thinking of re-knitting the sleeves because I don't really like the shaping and I'd prefer to have them straight.

Many apologies for my crap photography.

7  Re: New Knitty's Calorimetry in Knitalongs by alicepalace on: December 17, 2006 08:37:47 AM
I've finished my second Calorimetry now.  It's for my sister's Christmas present but this is me modelling it (I had to check it fitted!).  I put baby cables into the ribbing, so maybe this variation should be called Cablorimetry?  The holes from the short rows were way more noticable this time, I think because I used unplyed wool last time and it had a bit of a fuzz round it that covered up the holes.

8  Re: Knitting Vs. Crochet: which would you recommend? in Crochet: Discussion and Questions by alicepalace on: December 13, 2006 11:29:27 AM
Actually, to be fair, when I did learn to knit I completely couldn't cope with the length of the needles after using a crochet hook and kept getting them caught in my sleeves and my hair and repeatedly poking myself.

Quote from: KatAutumn

I totally bow in honor of your patience.  What were the approximate dimensions of your doily?

The evil, black, massive doily is about 18 inches diameter.  A picture of it is here:

I made a Calorimetry yesterday with the only-cast-on-80 modification and it turned out really cool!  One thing I liked with the original yarn was the way it had made a stripe round the edge, so I tried to achieve the same thing, changing colour for the third rows from the edges at the beginning and end.  Mine was pretty tightly knitted so it's not that stretchy or floppy, but it is super-warm, and also covers up my root regrowth a treat.

This is the sideshot, which shows the hairclips I added because I thought they looked nice...

And this is the side/back view...

The next thing I knit is going to be for a part of my body that's easy to photograph, because hats and gloves are impossible!
