1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / -kiri shawl in midnight blue - 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  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / - branching out in orchid - 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:

That yarn looks really nice and the hat looks great on him!

Does cocoon shed at all?

Kind of. It actually sheds these lighter/whiter (what I'm assuming to be the mohair) fibers. Not so much that it's alarming but I did notice it when I wore darker colors while knitting it.

I only noticed it this fall/winter so I believe it's new to the lineup. You should be able to get your mitts on some in the uk, and I urge you to try- it's heavenly! Smiley

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.

if i knew how to sew i'd go buck wild creating dual medium pieces

-scarves with pockets (line a knit pocket, attach a sewn one)
-lined hoodies, beanies, mittens, earflaps,
-shrugs with fabric collars
-tops & halters a la lingerie style (fabric body, knit boobs+straps)
-i'd cut off the backs of shirts and crochet some funky circles, attach at random spots so that it creates an open breezy sexy back
-wife beater style tanks with lace overlays (hey i could do that one without sewing hmm...lol)

i dunno, thats just off the top of my head.


think how cool a lace headband would look with a dope fabric poking out underneath the yos.
or what about...
pencil cases with knitted dividers!! knitted pockets!!

crap i wish i could sew

(depending on how lazy/math savvy you are)
you could knit a swatch of each,
wash and measure the results,
& use those measurements to gauge the size of each log cabin piece

it's a bunch of work but you'd have a better grasp of what the final product will be.

if you'd like to throw it in the wash, i second the felting pre-assembly so that you know the approximate size of the piece your working with.
