She Sells Seashells: Naughty Needles Burlesque Clamshell Bikini

Tuesday, March 20th, 2007

First cup. I went with stranded colorwork knits & purls, though it’s not my forte, because the results looked better. Originally, I was planning on knitting it in the other direction, with the raised portions as reverse stockinette and the shell’s creases as stockinette, with short rows to flair the scallops, but the Softwist doesn’t […]

Almost finished: Viper Girl cardigan

Sunday, February 25th, 2007

Just needs to finish drying and get a button. I really like it, despite that the right sleeve is 2 st wider than the left until the end, dammit. Just wasn’t paying attention & didn’t notice until I got to the cuff. And of course it’s accentuated by the band of handspun on the left […]

Spin to Knit

Friday, February 16th, 2007

I’m in love with this sweater from Shannon Okey’s Spin to Knit (picture from pippikneesocks’ photo stream): It’s a topdown raglan with a handspun yoke. It’s been FREEZING lately, and all I want to do is knit sweaters. I couldn’t come up with enough of anything for the rest of the sweater, and I swatched […]

Holy. Crap.

Saturday, February 10th, 2007

Lately, I’ve been looking at a LOT of yarn porn. So in an effort to avoid whatever leads me to sin, I decided to officially rejoin the stashalong. I like numbers and charts, and also confessing, so I thought the full disclosure option (#2) would be my best bet. I went through and counted up […]

So much for that

Thursday, February 8th, 2007

I’m frogging again. This makes me look like a bear cub. So I think I’ll scrap the original pattern altogether for now–this yarn’s too bulky, but I think it will be perfecet for some Schulana Morbido I have. Instead, I’m going to use a K1P1 rib, which disappears into the slubs, but which will spread […]

Haircut knitting

Wednesday, January 31st, 2007

I worked on the critter I owe Ashley while I got my hair cut last night. I’ve been too busy to knit, and since I frogged my whole glove last weekend, I’m just screaming to knit some more. Ron’s going to St. Louis tomorrow, so I’m going to alternate between updating Naughty Needles, TCB, and […]

Rage averted

Thursday, January 25th, 2007

I was all in a huff about getting a 1 rating and a complaint of no delivery for a swap I sent a month ago, and for which delivery confirmation showed December 28 delivery. But I contacted the swapee & apparently she just got confused and gave the no-show rating to the wrong person & […]

Oh, bother!

Saturday, January 20th, 2007

elann.com’s response to my inquiry about black, brown & tan Devon: “…it is difficult to say when, or if, we will re-stock this yarn again.” Darn it. I was really wanting to use the Devon for my I Have Everything scarf. Or something elann, what with the no-spending-January store credit loophole and my nice fat […]
