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:

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.

4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / - Braided Cable Hat in Rowan Cocoon - 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



5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / -Wobbly brim fix- What's the best way to do it? on: December 04, 2007 08:22:06 AM
I knit a hat for a friend and the brim is a bit wobbly. I'm sure this is due to the fact that I didn't knit the bottom ribbing long enough and the braided cable is scrunching the little ribbing I do have.

So my question is this,

Am I better off picking up stitches and continuing the brim in the same pattern or reversing the pattern so that the new sts are opposite?

Will one way provide more stability than the other?

6  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

7  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Interesting stitch/scarf 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.

8  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / - ribbed bolero in steel - 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.

9  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / - beaded halter in teal - 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
10  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Winter Sports Beanie Related Question - Moisture Wicking? on: August 21, 2007 10:55:04 AM
So I've been looking through the fiber content of all my fav. snowboarding brands and I'm honestly kinda suprised that most if not all knits seem to be acrylic. I would have thought there would be some wool for added warmth.

I'm doing a larger scale order for a group (20 beanies) and I'd like to know what you think would be the best fiber to use? Ideally a moisture wicking fiber as these boys get schvetty.
