11  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Lion Brand Jean's Felted Clutch on: December 26, 2007 01:24:43 PM
Just knitted this up for New Year's Eve.  Got the yarn super cheap at hobby lobby and wasn't quite sure what to do with it.  It didn't end up totally felting, but it felted enough that the stitches stick together and nothing will fall out.  Very quick and easy knit.

Yarn: Yarn Bee Mosaic Twist in flashy
Pattern: Lion Brand Jean's Felted Clutch

13  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Can you felt Mosaic Twist? on: December 18, 2007 03:19:37 PM
Bought some Yarn Bee Mosaic Twist at Hobby Lobby today on super sale.  I'm really hoping it can be felted into a pretty little clutch, but it is a wool blend rather than straight wool:

--36% polyamide, 11% cotton, 35% wool, and 18% acrylic

Anyone know if this can be felted?  I tried the "felting test" here: http://www.getknitting.com/ak_0601felting.aspx.  The fibers seem to stick together okay.
14  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Basic Earflap Hat on: October 28, 2007 11:06:33 AM
Just in time for fall - a cozy earflap hat.  This hat definitely won't get lost in my closet.  The yarn is really fun, and even better it was on clearance for only $1/skein.

Pattern: http://heyjulie.wordpress.com/2006/06/27/basic-earflap-hat/

Awesome pattern, super quick knit, and easy to follow.

15  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Karate Sweater pics on: October 28, 2007 11:01:09 AM
finally got some pics of my karate sweater.  quite different from the pics in the book - a small is REALLY small in this pattern.  More like  shrunken cardie than a nice cozy sweater.  I think I will give it another try in a large, and use the correct size needles this time (last time I had my 17s in the 19 package.)

I love the Miss Sophia!  The blue is so pretty!  Are the edges crochet?
17  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Karate Sweater on: October 20, 2007 12:16:45 PM
Just finished up the Karate sweater.  Two things I wish I would have known before starting:

1) the small is really really small - the evening shell was not near as small
2)  if you accidently use size 17's (rather than 19's) the sweater is unbelievably tiny, it looks like it could fit a 6 year old!

Luckily, there is a lot of stretch in the stitch so I can just barely squeeze into it.  With a few mods it fits more like a shrunken blazer, I didn't do the belt and stopped the sleeves at elbow length.  And since it is so stretched you can really appreciate the stitch.

Once I get my hands on a digi-cam I'll post some pics!  I think I might give it another try in the large so it will actually fit like it looks in the pic.

18  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Help with Twinkle Hoodie pleas! on: September 09, 2007 06:41:20 PM
I tried to start the Twinkle hoodie tonight, but am a little confused.  Are the sleeves knit in the round or straight across and then later seamed?  It doesn't really specify in the directions.

I was thinking the round would be easier, b/c I hate seaming, but then I might have difficulties joining them to the body.  Anyone been able to figure this out?

The evening shell was a pretty quick and simple knit - I think the errata was very minimal.  It ends up being super low cut, and I would definitelly recommend making the tunic length.

Good luck!

bubilina - you have any pictures of the evening shell on?  it looks really good!
I want to see too! I'm in love!

No action shots yet - too busy with school.  I'll get them up as soon as I have a free second.

As for the yarn - this was a super inexpensive project.  4 skeins of Softee Chunky were plenty for both the shell and hat, even double stranded.  (It's actually hot pink, the lighting was horrible.)
