2  Ms. Golightly Headscarf (Now with link to pattern on page 1) in Knitting: Completed Projects by knittinkitten on: August 07, 2006 01:01:01 PM
This was a submission for Knitty that didn't make it in the Extremities issue.  I can finally post it now!

Even though I designed it as a headscarf, I like it much better as a regular scarf.  It's nice for the days where there's a little bit of a chill in the air, but not cold enough for a big wooly number.

**UPDATED 8/8/06**  Pattern for download here!  http://jetricotepourmoi.blogspirit.com/archive/2006/08/08/you-want-it-you-got-it.html

3  My finished Vintage Knits Cami....finally! in Knitting: Completed Projects by knittinkitten on: August 06, 2006 03:01:43 PM
It took almost a year to start, leave it, and then get back to finishing it, but I'm done!

Not really pleased how it turned out though...The fitting is terrible.  Too boxy, not long enough (of course, it would have helped if the pattern had listed the finished length WITH the straps), straps were too long and had to be adjusted, and the trim doesn't stand up nicely like in the picture, even after blocking.  I also couldn't figure out how the hell to thread the damn thing with ribbon (look at the picture as a guide, the directions said. Nice.), so I just did it around the top and it's fine.  I don't think I'd wear it alone, probably with a cami, or over another cami since it's too short on me.  Oh well!

6  Vogue Knitting Winter 06 - Bobble Sweater in Knitting: Completed Projects by knittinkitten on: March 28, 2006 12:27:23 PM
Just finished last night:

From Vogue Knitting Winter 06.  It originally was a tunic length, but I shortened it to be more practical and also shortened the sleeves for more of a fall/spring sweater.  The yarn I made it out of is super warm, too!  It's in the 50's today and I was a wee bit hot in the sun.

The hardest part were the bobble chains since I had to teach myself to crochet.  I only knew chain stitch!  Super easy sweater, I recommend it to all/

7  Trapper Hat from Winter Vogue 06 in Knitting: Completed Projects by knittinkitten on: February 27, 2006 08:19:07 AM
I finished my Trapper Hat from Vogue Knitting!  Honestly, am I the only one who liked a couple of the projects in that issue?  I saw so much bashing of it in some other posts.

Heehee I looks so dorky in these pictures.  More details on my blog!

9  Cable Purse/Clutch -- NOW WITH PATTERN in Knitting: Completed Projects by knittinkitten on: August 14, 2005 02:43:31 PM
I intended on making the Margaret Nicole pattern that was posted on here, but things took a different turn when I couldn't find a handle I liked and wanted to put in a zipper.

Here's how:

(I took these directions from someone else who figured out the cable pattern but slightly adapted it for this version.)

You will need:
2 skeins Cashmere Luxury Chunky by Fantasy Yarns - Available at AC Moore
     --This is just like Debbie Bliss Cashmarino but cheaper
Size 8 needles
Size 8 dpns
Cable needle
14" zipper in matching color
1/2 yard of lining fabric of choice
Small bit of narrow cording
Thread in a matching color

CO 58 sts

R 1-9 ODD: K3, P4, K8, P4, K2, P4, K8, P4, K2, P4, K8, P4, K3

R 2-8 EVEN: P3, K4, P8, K4, P2, K4, P8, K4, P2, K4, P8, K4, P3

R 10: P3, K4, C8B, K4, P2, K4, C8B, K4, P2, K4, C8B, K4, P3

Repeat this pattern until you've made 5 cable twists.  K 10 rows.  BO.

Measure purse for lining, leaving a 1/2" seam allowance.  Fold over edges and press so that raw seams are not exposed.  Stitch to wrong side of purse.

To make wrist loop, allow an extra long tail and CO 5 stitches on to dpns and make i-cord so that you will be able to take the loop on and off your wrist comfortably.  Allow 1/4" extra on each end for stitching into purse side seam.  BO i-cord, leaving and extra long tail.  Measure piece of cording so that it's as long as i-cord, and then insert cording through i-cord for added stability.  Weave both tail ends around i-cord opening to seal i-cord shut around cording.

Fold purse in half matching up edges, then mattress stitch seams together starting at fold and working up to the top.  When you're about 1/2" from the top edge of the side you want the loop to be on, lay both ends of i-cord loop next to each other in seam and stitch aroundand through loop ends securely.  You may want to do this a couple times to really make sure it won't come out.  Sew other seam together as usual.

Pin zipper to one side of purse opening by stretching the top to it's maximum capability and lining up on side of the zipper tape.  Stitch to about 1/2" near the end and repeat on other side.  The zipper will have to be cut since it will be a bit too long.  Decide where to cut the zipper, and then stitch back and forth across the zipper right above you'd like to cut it.  Cut zipper, and then stitch to purse to secure.

As for the ribbon, anything goes.  The way I did mine (it's a little weird to describe) is I started at one side of the center cable and threaded the ribbon so that it goes under the ribbing panel and up at the one side of the cable, over the cable and down the other side.  Of course, you could do it off center or pattern it however you like, or not even have one at all!

The finished measurments should roughly be around 10"X5"

10  Felted "Monster" Purses!! Grarrr! in Knitting: Completed Projects by knittinkitten on: August 03, 2005 03:29:21 PM

Both done in Lambs Pride Worsted.  The blue one uses blue Fun Fur, and the multi one uses some sort of Berroco eyelash yarn...the name escapes me right now.  I made some in May 2004 for an arts festival and I'm glad that these two didn't sell!
