1  -kiri shawl in midnight blue - in Knitting: Completed Projects by steezah on: September 18, 2008 10:16:22 AM

I finally got around to photographing my Ravelympics project.
It's been a while since I've had a good contribution to this board and I hope this makes the cut.
This is my first lace shawl and I'm already thinking of the next one.

I used Alpaca with a Twist - Fino for my yarn choice.
It's a silky alpaca dream to work with.. always smooth and consistent in texture.
Here is the stitch for the macro detail loving.

and the final results!

I won't bother you all with my ravings on this project, but I loved the heck out of it.
Great pattern that I would reccomend for any newbie lacer.

2  - branching out in orchid - in Knitting: Completed Projects by steezah on: March 15, 2008 10:42:05 AM

I made this for www.theknitterproject.com

yarn: knit picks shine sport, just under 3 balls

needles: 4.0 mm addis

cruisin the fiber highway

with tags

on the glow in the dark gangsta dunny

I am super happy with the outcome of this piece, though I half wish I had doubled the pattern width. Due to the weight of the length it can get thin when looping around the neck.

the pattern can be found here:

I know, the pictures are bad! I thought hey, maybe a little color will help. nope. lol

Maybe this wip shot should have been put up too, gives a better idea of color & stitch def

I knit a hat that can be worn two ways. A frenchier beret  or a lax slouch, depending on how you style the brim. The colors were way off in the pictures I took so I messed with them in lightroom for shiz & giggles.

5  - Braided Cable Hat in Rowan Cocoon - in Knitting: Completed Projects by steezah on: December 28, 2007 03:19:16 PM
I made this little little ditty for a graphic artist friend of mine who wanted a hat. We hammered out the details and he chose the holy grail of Rowan Cocoon! God I love this yarn, it's so spongey and lustrous!

I took a zillion pictures, mostly due to my inebriated post-top-model-finale state.
It's to late to apologiiiiiiizzze.....

I wrote up a pattern too, but I'm still new at it. It's not particularly hard, but remembering to write down as you go is my greatest downfall. I'm usually on the go when I knit and paper and pen are never handy!

I don't to overkill with the photos, so there are tons more on the blog, and about twice that on our flickr account!

Hope you like my hat

I finished the third a while ago, but here she is. It's light and airy but the color makes it stand out like crazy! If you haven't made one already-get on it!  Wink

I've put all my knitting aside for a very lucky girlfriend who wants 3 Montego Bay Scarves.

First of the bunch.
Done with fleece artist Sea Woolin the Straw or Buttercream colorway. It's hard to tell which- and since they aren't named it's anyones best guess.

Second of the bunch.
Fleece artist/Handmaiden Sea Silk in Origin

8  Interesting stitch/scarf in Crochet: Discussion and Questions by steezah on: September 25, 2007 12:46:24 PM

I found this while vintage shopping on the weekend. 
Any ideas on how it was made or the stitch used?
What do you guys make of it?

As far as I can tell, it's made lengthwise.

9  - ribbed bolero in steel - in Knitting: Completed Projects by steezah on: September 25, 2007 10:26:51 AM
Holy internet withdrawl.
Mine finally got set up and I think I've just spent the past three hours oogling all the new things psted here in the past month.
Ya'll have been busy!

So I knit up TragicHeroine's Ribbed Bolero last week, and it was fun fling. I used a single hank of Redheart's softy something or other wool/acrylic blend. I couldnt tell you the yardage for the life of me, but that rant is on the blog if your interested. I think it's a great pattern and an even better gift now that those fall nights (and multiple bdays) are creeping up upon us.

10  - beaded halter in teal - in Knitting: Completed Projects by steezah on: September 04, 2007 08:10:04 PM
This is my second 'wearable' top.

I followed the Beaded Cami from Blackdog Designs loosely as a guide, taking cue's from both TragicHeorine and Landry's versions along the way. I lowered the bust line to an empire waist, cast on for 4x leaf repeats instead of 5, decreased almost every other row at the beginning and then eased up as I got to the ribcage to about 1 in 3 then 1 in 4 etc etc. For the bodice, I cast on about 60odd sts, for a smaller 3x pattern repeat and added a LOT of bust shaping. I think in all I did about...9 or 10 rows? Almost enough for a C. Thinking back I shoulda done more so the boobs didn't pop out, but I'd be lying if I didn't think it is dead sexy the way it is. Wink

BF went a lil pic happy at the photoshoot so if you want to see all 8 of the final cut, check them out here. http://teamknit.blogspot.com/2007/09/yay-internet-yay-fo.html
