21  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Noro Silk Garden Scarflet and Hat on: August 06, 2005 08:30:43 PM
Okay, it's just a simple garter stitch scarflet, but I love that Noro Silk Garden! I cast on 20 stitches and one skein made a 32" scarflet.  I'll fasten it with a vintage rhinestone brooch and either wear it this way:

or this way:

Shoulda slipped the first stitch of each row.  Oh, well, I'll still wear it.
Here's a roll brim hat, too:
22  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / St. Valentine's Day Massacre on: July 20, 2005 11:27:02 AM
I'm attempting to knit the Valentine's Day Hat from SNB.  I don't know how to "inc 1" on dpns.  I have 9 stitches on four dpns.  Next I'm supposed to "Inc 1, k1, (inc 1, inc 1, k1) twice, inc1 - 15 stitches."  I have no idea what that means? Does "inc1" refer to a specific kind of increase?  Does it mean an "M1f"?  Gah!   Could someone please help me?       
23  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" on: July 16, 2005 07:08:05 AM
I took my son to see "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" and was blown away by all the knitted items the actors were wearing or huddled under!  Wow, for a destitute family the Buckets sport some really chic knits!  Helena Bonham-Carter, even with grody teeth, has never looked lovelier.  Tim Burton needs to come out with a companion knitting book.
24  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Agate and Lace Scarf Knitalong on: May 26, 2005 07:00:49 PM
Check out this great lace scarf Christicarr found on Naive Knitter's blog.  Anyone want to try it?  It looks pretty easy and it's absolutely gorgeous!  Anyone care to join Horsepower and me?   
25  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Felted Pouch and Purse on: April 02, 2005 08:37:14 AM
Knitted and felted zippered pouch and reversible 10"x13"purse.  One side is stockinette stitch and the other has wild-lookin' knobblies on it. 
  Much of the yarn I Kool-Aid dyed.     

26  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Felted Magenta Messenger Bag on: February 21, 2005 11:46:19 AM
I knitted this up really fast on US 15 circulars.  It's just a tube with a flap and a strap, and a loop and button closure.  I used Lamb's Pride Bulky and a wool and silk blend I bought at Stitches West.  Felted dimensions:  14" x 10" x 2".   

27  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Felting Question on: January 26, 2005 04:09:08 PM
Would it be possible to knit with two strands of different gauge wool yarn and then felt them?  I'd like to knit a marsupial tote using one strand of Lamb's Pride Bulky and one of Noro Kureyon, instead of the recommended two strands of Lamb's Pride Bulky.  For the handle I'd like to use just the Bulky. I couldn't find the answer to this question anywhere.  Any advice would be very much appreciated!
28  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Clawed-My-Way-to-the-End Scarves on: January 17, 2005 01:36:46 AM

I just started knitting two weeks ago and just completed my first two scarves. 

Blue scarf:  Rowan Yorkshire Tweed wool, size 6 US needles, double seed stitch.
Nearly lost my will to live.  Tweedy-ness helped hide mistakes!  Added big pom poms made with my beloved pom pom maker by Clover.

Red scarf:  Optimum wool by Southwest Trading Co., size 8 US needles, broken rib stitch.  Got to block it, because the sides are curling somethin' fierce.  I folded up the bottom, so you could see the other side.  One side looks ribbed and the other looks kind of like double seed stitch, but with the seeds in a grid.

Third scarf:  wool, Five Point by Colinette, garter stitch, size 15 US needles.  Five Point is a chunky and thin yarn.   
29  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Perfect Gift for You! on: December 18, 2004 05:21:01 AM
Okay, don't kill me for posting this in Completed Projects, but I felt morally obligated to tell you about this great book I found-- Handbags:  The Power of the Purse by Anna Johnson, published by Workman Publishing.  It's pure heaven for those addicted to purse-making!  900 full-color photos of purses from the 5th century to the present!  It's $13.95 US and would fit neatly in a Christmas stocking.  You've been sooo good, making purses for all your friends and family all year.  I will whisper in Santa's ear that you deserve this. 
30  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Velveteen A-line Jordy on: November 26, 2004 04:38:31 PM
Shs's A-line Jordy is soo much fun to make.  Nearly went mental sewing with velveteen for the first time.  Slip, slide, arrgh!  Fray, fray, fray!  The other tricky part was attaching the magnetic snap halves in the exact right places.  Since I used a very thick interfacing, the snap had to fit just right, or else the flap would have stood up and not covered up the lining fabric.  I didn't want to use the button as an actual button.  It's just an adornment, not a workin' button.  Details:  super plush velveteen, lining fabric from Japan, huge rhinestone button, very thick interfacing sewn to velveteen, thin interfacing sewn to lining, SewPixie zipper pocket.
