August Sweater, WIP, Yarn School, Batts & a shiny new egg!

Wednesday, August 27th, 2008

YARN: 5 balls Knit Picks Andean Silk PATTERN: Generic top-down raglan with lace panel, short sleeves, 1×1 ribbing at collar, cuffs & hem NOTES: No shaping. I wish I had shaped the waist. It’s cute enough, and the yarn has enough drape that it’s not dumpy even though it’s boxy, but it would be way […]

June Sweater: Puff-sleeve maternity sweater

Wednesday, July 16th, 2008

I just realized I forgot to post my June sweater. It wasn’t supposed to be a maternity sweater, but I went a little nuts with the hip shaping, apparently. It’s even too loose for my fat ass (the pictures are forgiving. It actually looks baggier & more awkward in real life). I also thought the […]

March Sweater: Beaverslide/Handspun seamless yoke mess

Saturday, March 22nd, 2008

Pattern: Improvised. Started as an EZ seamless yoke backwards (top-down). But it was way too bunchy. Afterwards, I unravelled it from the collar down to the pits and reknit with more even shaping–basically decreased every 9th stitch every 4 rows, then did a couple rows of short-row shaping in the back under the collar to […]

Linen Mystery + January Sweaters

Saturday, January 12th, 2008

Last week, I finally finished & shipped Shannon the item I designed for her upcoming alt fiber book. Here’s a shot of it before washing & blocking. I doubt I’m allowed to show real pictures of it (and besides, I forgot to photograph the FO before shipping), but it’s awfully cute! Knitting linen kind of […]

Snow Day!

Saturday, December 22nd, 2007

We were supposed to drive to Austin today, but the weather reports (blowing snow advisory) along the first 5 hrs of the route were very discouraging, so we decided to wait until tomorrow. It wasn’t bad this morning, so we thought about going ahead with it, but the snow just hit and man, am I […]

FREE PATTERN: Woodland Shawl

Thursday, August 23rd, 2007

If you’re a chart person, you should totally use this fabulous chart! Errata: If you printed this out the first day it was up (8/23/07) , there was an typo in line 14 of the lace pattern (it said P2 instead of P1), with the same error in the setup row (fixed 9/18). The setup […]
