31  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Re: The Beginner's Top-Down Raglan (patt. incl.) on: April 24, 2008 06:19:35 AM
casmir, that really looks nice made of wool, I may try a wool one after I do a summer version, but I think I'm going to try to find a cotton blend to do first, so I can wear it now. We already swtiched on our a/c here in NM.

And Halloween nut yous looks great too! I can't wait to start onmine as soon as I get this birthday knitting done!

Thanks for the nice comments, everyone!!   Kiss

Of course - I have to laugh...  I finished the sweater on the first weekend of the year where the temperature's been over 70 degrees here... LOLOLOLOLOL...  figures, eh?  Well - I'm ready for fall (and any unseasonably chilly days in between)....

Looks great, I'd never guess it was your first sweater. I still haven't started mine yet... it'll be my first sweater too...

 but now that you have the pattern down, you can make one out of a worsted cotton blend with slightly shorter sleeves maybe...

I can't wait to dive into making mine as soon as I finish the socks I'm making for a friend's bday...

Knitting my first sweater is on my BIG LIST OF CHALLENGES for 2008, and I just can't seem to get myself into wanting to knit one that I have to sew together, so this one really fits the bill! As soon as I get a special birthday knitting project out of the way I'm tackling this. It will be a perfect look for work or even more casual with jeans. And boy do I have a stashload of yarn I need to use. I'm so glad I found this! The best part is that I should have everything I need on hand, even if I have to do several colors of stripes...

If you are interested in or already love paper piecing, you can't miss http://www.sewhooked.org/ , especially if you like fandom quilting... ofenjen has loads of free patterns including her signature Harry Potter patterns, as well as animals, Star Trek, etc...

There's really no limit to what you can make with it, if there is some you don't want to quilt, there's always bags of various sizes, throw pillows, book covers, contrasting pockets for shirts/skirts, etc. Just have a blast!

As Peter Griffin would say, "Freakin' Sweet!" Talk about a makeover, that is awesome! 
37  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: knifty knitter hat on: September 25, 2007 02:16:49 PM
Very nice! I have made a few lately with various kinds of yarn, and I've found the drape and weight of the yarn REALLY make a difference in the fit of the hat. Generally I find the the green loom is perfect for my head, and the red too small for my 10yo daughter, so I'd say the green is equivalent to an adult sm-med size head circumference.  I believe in sized hats I wear a 7 1/8 just for a point of reference.

I just finished one out of two strands of a boucle last night on the green loom, just a simple roll-brim hat, and due to how stretchy the yarn is it's actually a bit big.

I think you did an awesome job of making the stripes come out nice, they don't always do that on the kk. Smiley

This is absolutely amazing! i love it! Intimidated at the size of the project, but it's definitely got me wanting to take the plunge and give something like this a shot... Thanks for posting it!

These are really fun. Um, any chance of hints on how to make for a grown-up girl who also likes to be warm under her skirt in the winter?

I am really impressed. They came out looking really modern and fitting so perfectly. I just checked this book out from the library because I really am feeling ready to try my first sweater, but the idea of having to knit so many pieces and then sew them together seems like so much for a lazy persone such as myself.  Cheesy

How difficult do you think one of these projects would be for someone who has never knit a sweater?
