1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Completed Lillian on: February 19, 2008 03:50:19 PM
This is a great project, actual knitting time went by ver fast.
Sitting on the couch waiting for me to pick it up, well that's another story. But alas, it is finished

I had thought about not blocking it, I love the lace pattern the way it is, but the neckline is a little too 'gappy' for me. so on the blocking board she will go.

Pattern: http://deliciousstitches.blogspot.com/2007/05/lillian-tank-top.html
Size 6 addi turbo circs
2 1/2 skeins of LB Cotton Ease in Candy Blue
Total knitting time 5 days.
Smallest size
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Are you Tempting? Me? Not so much....pic chubbett on: February 07, 2008 12:37:27 PM
I finished the new sweater yesterday. 8 solid days of k1p1, but I think it was worth it.
I made a few mods, nothing major.
I used size 8 addi turbos and LB Cotton Ease

I knit for 15" before the sleeves and when I got to the neckline, I frogged this bad boy three times till I finally got it to fit the way I wanted it to.
I really like the neck the way I did it.

After the decrease round, I knit one round, then did a k2tog all the way around, then I followed the directions for the neckband, but I only used five sts instead of 11.
I like it better this way.

Thanks for looking.

This is my absolute favorite sweater. Even though this is going to have be hand washed, it is still going to get a once a week wearing.
The pattern is the Lucy Cardigan from CosmicPluto

It took me about ten days to finish. And the buttons are from my stash, bought for who knows what many years ago.

Knit with Ice Yarns Baby Alpaca and Cashmere on size 6 needles

All comments welcome!

4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Bella and her Bonnet on: October 29, 2007 04:07:37 PM
Bella keeps ear infections, and after fighting her at the fair for four hours to keep her hat on, I had an idea.
You don't see very many earflap hats where I am from in Alabama, and I can't for the life of me figure out why, especiall when they look this cute........

The pattern came from here:

The yarn is Caron's Simply Soft with size five needles.
Wanted to try it out on acrylic before I did wool.
I think it came out pretty cute. What do you think?

5  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / It's a PANTA! 2 Images on: October 26, 2007 06:40:45 PM
I have a love hate relationship with headbands, they either are so tight my brain can feel the pinch, or they fall off my weird shaped head. That was until today......

Excuse the bathroom picture, no photographers available.

I knit mine with 100% superwash merino on size five needles for 19" and added three buttonholes and purple buttons, it feels more secure atop the old noggin that way.

I used this pattern:
It was a great pattern, easy to follow and memorize. Now I think I could whip one out for everyone on ye ole Christmas List.

All comments and criticism  welcome.

6  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Armband, elbow warmer, bamboo & wool thingy with patternish..... on: October 14, 2007 05:00:19 PM
 I made this for my Aunt last week. She has bad shoulders from lifting heavy trays as a fine dining waitress all her life. The doctor has said her shoulders and elbows have had it. They ache all the time so she was walking around with an old cut up sock over her elbows. So.........being an inovative knitter, I came up with these.

I used 80% bamboo 20% wool yarn I got from Ebay and size 6 12" circs.
I co 62 sts and just started a sock top for 4" then 3" of sts for comfort at the joint and elbow, then 4 more inches of sock top. And wala!

Let me know what you think.

7  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / First Striped Sweater ++++Now with Pics+++ on: October 10, 2007 06:23:46 PM
I finally finished my first attempt at stripes. It came out allot better than I thought.

I still need to add the buttons, but you use your models when they have time to allow you ;0)

The model is GrandBrat #1 Isaac, who is also the happy recipient of a new "jacket" by MiMi. Cool
This pattern was from the book
