21  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / - montego bay in straw /origin / amethyst - *TRILOGY COMPLETE* on: October 24, 2007 08:09:30 AM
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

i totally need to learn more about crochet to understand any of that lol.
please show us if you do make it Smiley

I think it would work as a bag, it seemed sturdy enough, but you might want to line it anyways so that small things don't drop out!

sweet, I think I have a good idea how to make it now...only I can't crochet for the life of me. I've tried a good deal of times but I can't even make coasters yet.  Cheesy So I think I'll hold off on this for a bit..

hey-is there a way to move threads?
Like throw this into the crochet discussions and questions?

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.

Do you ever get tried on me telling you how much I love your style?  The color and style are very flattering.  Is that pattern on craftster? I don't remember seeing it here.

Never!@ I love knowing that I'm not just -out there- on the things I do/make/change. And yep, the pattern is on here in craftsterland somewhere, but I know for a fact that it's on her blog. Googling "10 feet Tall Ribbed Bolero" will get you to the right spot.

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.

30  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Re: Twinkle's Big City Knits Book Knitalong on: September 12, 2007 08:29:32 AM

Following her first book, Twinkles Big City Knits, Wenlan Chia brings devotees and new fans more fabulous Twinkle designs to create at home (at a fraction of the price youd pay for them in stores like Barneys, Saks, Nordstrom, and Bloomingdales). Known for transforming bold, chunky yarns into delicate, body-shaping pieces, Wenlan Chia again shares her signature style; this time in 20 inspired patterns that are perfect for weekend knitting and for wearing any time.

Start the weekend with Friday night out with friends as you Twinkle through the night. The Nightfall Cropped Top is knit with lush silk and cotton yarn, while the Wisteria Scarf creates drama with its cascading clusters of blossom stitches.

Saturday is the day for funhiking, shopping, or just going for a stroll. Capture this feeling with the lively, sporty fashions in the Fun Alfresco chapter, including the Oceania Sweater, a vintage-inspired pullover with a built-in iPod pocket, or the Snowdrop Hat & Peony Scarf, the perfect set for a day on the slopes.

Take a moment to recharge on Sunday, the last night away, with more relaxed, simple knits. From the Meridian Tunic Dress, perfect with jeans and sandals, to the Cloudburst Cardigan, a ruffled knit that easily slips on over a dress, the patterns in this chapter are casual and comfortable.

For those starting their very first sweater to experienced knitters looking for new tips and techniques to enhance designs theyve already mastered, this beautifully illustrated book offers many weekends worth of knitting pleasure and fabulous, one-of-a-kind Twinkle wares.
