301  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: I finished my first non accessory! the Razor Cami by katie on: March 25, 2007 11:05:59 AM

im so happy to hear!!  the yarn is a 60% cotton and 40% modal blend.  i LOVE modal.  my bedsheets are modal, its the softest thing ive ever felt and lends a def softness to the cotton.

I am also obsessed with modal (I've got the sheets too)  and this knit picks yarn is amazing. I made Sheldon the turtle from knitty with it and it was such a joy to work with!!  I've been wanting to make something out of the coral color and you have totally inspired me to try this cami.  But I will have to knit it up MUCH faster than you did if I want to enjoy it this summer.  Ha ha.  Wish me luck!

i've always wondered tho...do knit bikinis sag off the body to the point of exposure when wet? Wink

And does the wearer have to reblock it every time they take it off or can you just toss it in the beach bag?

Those are the top two questions I have always had about these knit bikinis.  I'm so happy to finally have a chance to ask!  Ha ha.

There are some things I thought about doing but didn't -- like lining it with some nice retro fabric, and sewing in a pocket or a strip of elastic to hold papers or something. You could also put a strap on it, maybe.

... or a zipper pull? I'm a big fan of zipper pulls.

Very cute!  Now I feel like a sucker for buying my notebook cozy that doesn't even fit right!

...And The box would be for our ticket stubs and stuff like that i believe

Cool!  So, another option for lining the box might be using your ticket stubs or cards he's given you, etc. and do a decoupage thing on the inside.  It would certainly be more personal than felt, but might not be done by Monday...

Your box looks great!  I think a lining would be a nice finishing touch, but I'm sure your bf will appreciate it either way.  But if he wants to use it for jewelry (watches?), then definitely line it with the felt or they'll get scratched. 

For the felt heart - try making little nips all over the edges of your shape (obviously, don't cut in further than your seam!) - especially the curvy part.  This will give you a little more give when you turn it inside out.  Another option: since you don't need to worry about fraying with felt you don't even have to turn it inside out and just call the stitches "decorative." 
309  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Rebel Alliance Reverse Applique Pillow on: March 10, 2007 09:07:31 PM
I saw a "reverse appliqué" pillow on Knitty Gritty where you machine-sew two knitted pieces together and then cut out the front part so the edges are all frayed and the bottom color shows through.  Since I love frayed jeans, I figured this was a technique I had to try!

The original pattern used a fleur de lis image, but I decided to geek it up a bit with the rebel alliance symbol from Star Wars.  I think I'll make a companion pillow in blue and black for the empire.  I also nixed the piping trim because I'm lazy.




If you decide to try this technique out, let me underscore the importance of putting the tear away stabilizer on the WRONG SIDE of your work.  I put mine on front without thinking and then I had to go through the whole design with tweezers and pull little bits of stabilizer out of the stitches.  What a pain!!

Here's the pattern from DIY's website: http://www.diynetwork.com/diy/na_knitting/article/0,2025,DIY_14141_4842335,00.html

Yay!  Thanks for the info about discountyarnsale.com.  It's like that dream where you go to Costco and they have aisles and aisles of yarn on gigantic spindles....  oh wait, am I the only one with that dream?
