1  Lucky Clover Shrug in Knitting: Completed Projects by quirkyfaerie on: January 24, 2009 09:21:58 PM
So I've had this https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=45597.msg412877;topicseen#msg412877 pattern on my To-Knit list for quite a while, and I finally found the inspiration to get working on it. The lace pattern I found on about.com somewhere in the knitting section, and the yarn is Caron's Simply Soft in Sage.
Here's the front:

It's hard to take a pic of yourself. I haven't exactly thought of how I want to close the front, so I just threaded a couple pieces of scrap yarn through each side and tied it to take the pics. Any suggestions?

The color in this one is off, but this is what it looks like from the back. I haven't blocked it yet.

Pretty accurate color, and a better shot of the lace.

It's really a circle, I just didn't feel like taking the time to lay it out exactly. Ignore my toes.

Comments are appreciated! Thanks for looking! Grin

2  Altered Irish Hiking Scarf in Knitting: Completed Projects by quirkyfaerie on: August 25, 2008 02:22:21 PM
So, I've finally finished my IHS; it seemed like no matter how much I worked on it, the thing was never long enough (I think it was secretly frogging itself while I wasn't looking Tongue). Anyway, I got the thing done today

and decided it was too dense for my taste

so I dropped the stitches around the cables to make it wider and more airy.

Binding off with dropped stitches was fun to figure out, but I like the finished product. I can't decide if I want to block it, or if I like the drop-stitches better more loopy. Any input from the peanut gallery?

Knittinfiasco - thanks for the tip! I must confess, though that I was too impatient and just went for it. Thankfully it fits. That's really one of the things I love about knitting; it's a really safe environment to jump in and see if you can swim. And the worst that can happen is that you just have to frog and start over. Here's what I've got so far...
