1  What to knit? in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by helenk on: August 04, 2007 03:31:52 PM

I have 115 grams of malabrigo (angora) and I don't know what to knit with it.  It's super soft so I'd love something around my neck/head but not a scarf.  Maybe a tube thing around my neck/head -- what are those things called?  Should I do mittens -- or is that a waste of the yarn?
I'd love any suggestions, esp patterns and/or where I can find the pattern you suggest.
Also, I live in Sacramento, CA so it doesn't really get that cold here, but I'd love to wear what I knit as much as possible.

Finally, to both finishing and posting!

Beginning was a bit difficult, but after putting the sleeves on scrap yarn, it was a breeze.  I started with xs but probaby switched to a small for the underarm part -- I had to knit more rounds for the underarm to be comfortable.  My sleeves aren't as poofy as I wanted and the neck is a bit too high, but overall I'm very happy with it.  Loved the lace pattern.  It's my first sweater!

My paolo decided he needed to be in the picture --kept jumping up on me until I picked him up.  Probably bad reinforcement, but what can I do?

I started this project months ago but kept getting stuck so I've only pathetically gotten this far.

Finally, I tried it on and the arms are too small!  I have to go back and put the arms back on the round.  As it is my first sweater, I want to finish it.  All your finished projects are motivating me.  Maybe it'll have to be a fall sweater rather than a spring one as I hoped it to be.

4  Paolo and me in Knitting: Completed Projects by helenk on: April 20, 2007 06:44:53 PM
It's my first posting of pix so hopefully it works out.  These are pix of my first knitting projects.  My Paolo's not thrilled about my new hobby but I had so much fun knitting small sweaters.

And then of course, we had to match.

Then, I couldn't neglect my two sisters' dogs: Spike and Rocco.

Finally, I branched out for a gift for a person.
