21  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Re: Stash-Be-Gone-Along? on: June 24, 2007 08:39:35 PM
This didn't get me too far through my stash, I think I only finished off one skein.  I'm still searching for the perfect buttons to replace the stitch markers - it buttons closed.  I don't think I'm going to bother lining it.  As long as I don't carry anything too tiny I think the stitch is tight enough.

I recently finished the evening shell - not too bad of a knit, though I did get tired of weaving in the ends from all 4 shoulder bind-offs.  And I forgot to switch to the 19's for the body, which might have affected the fit.

Here's a close up of the cabling.  The seed stitch was not as tedius as I had anticipated.

I had enough yarn left over to whip up the Aspen Hat last week in knitting club.  You can't beat a one night knit.  I still need to add the buttons.

I think i'm on to the hoodie next, debating over turquoise or yellow. . .

Youre looking great! I was thinking of buying the issue for this pattern, was it difficult ? How long did it take you ?

I'll second that.  You did a fabulous job and I would love to add this pattern to my knitting queue.  I'm too lazy of a knitter to do anything too complicated or time consuming - I would never finish.

You look fabulous in this dress - its not any shorter than what I see girls running around in every day!  I do think it would look great with some lacey stitch around the bottom (as mentioned above.)

Super cute!  Do the pants have a drawstring or elastic waist?  I would love to make the entire outfit!  Any advice on drafting a pattern?  Great job!

I just started my evening shell tonight - I looked forward in the pattern and I totally see what you are saying.  It makes no sense to me why the entire pattern is written in the round except the Cable Pattern.

Anyways, I'm going to get through the ribbing tonight and start on the body tomorrow.  I'm using 2 strands of Bernat Softee Chunky - too scared (and impatient) to check gauge so we'll see. . . . .anyone else sub this yarn?

Great recon!  I wonder how big of a shirt I would need to make one of these in my size. . . .

I made this for a baby shower gift - my fingers are still hurting from all the bobbles!  Definitely adorable, but it requires a TON of patience.  I wish I would have strung on a small bead to define the eye. . .

I thought I'd share one of my favourite and useless washcloths. The pattern is at http://www.knittingknonsense.com/bobbles_sheep.html "Bobble the Sheep" with peaches n' cream denim, its just as hard to see the sheep up close then it was to take a picture of it unfortunately. I made another one in non varigated wool and it worked out so well I gave it away, never remembering to take a picture.

Gorgeous!  I absolutely love the fabric - the tent style really lets the colors and design take center stage.

I am ordering this book in the next couple of days, can anyone tell me what different sizes of needles the patterns call for?  Thanks alot, I can't wait to get started! Smiley

Size 17 and 19 circles - HUGE!  If anyone has a Hobby Lobby in their area, needles are half off this week.

Wow!  That is absolutely amazing.  Way to stick with it!
