For a first :shock: (can't BELIEVE it's your first) garment it's absolutely STUNNING. :heart: :heart: that lavender color! I bet your DGD will be sad when she outgrows it. Don't you wish you could freeze time sometimes? :lol:

My latest FO.... gloves to match my lace scarf. They're my first pair of gloves, they look a little wonky in shape (blocking gloves without a shaped blocker thingy isn't easy), but they fit just fine. Woot! :happydance:

*yes, "shaped blocker thingy" is a technical term.

kemp
09-15-2005, 06:28 PM
hmmm...don't seem to wonky to me! You know...since you're in Fla. I'm sure you can find these...there are hand shaped thingies (also technical) that are meant for drying your golf glove that might work well as glove blockers.

As I clicked on this and saw the picture of the gloves, I didn't even need to see who made them. My first thought was 'Silver's done it again!" Beautiful, just beautiful.

I finally finished the thing! I was so bored with it I kept doing other projects, but I finally sat my butt down and finished it!

I used Bernat Disco Yarn with some orange yarn I picked up on sale in July. That stuff is a PAIN to work with, but hey... it's cute and fuzzy. I'm not ecstatic about it, but it's cute.

P.S. You should model that set for us Silver! :heart: :heart: :heart:

My training sock! (http://www.livejournal.com/users/aidanmoon/222268.html)
I'm SOOO excited! I've never done anything like this at all! I just learned to knit not too many weeks ago, and since then I haven't really done anything with it but yesterday I bought some DPN's because I wanted to do hats. But the first thing I did with them was this training sock from knitty! I just...I'm SO EXCITED!! I've been amazed by these people who knit socks all the time and I never thought I'd be able to do it. There's all kinds of mistakes in it, the most obvious one being the row of garter stitch at the back - But I don't care!! I'm so confident in my knitting now that I know the one thing I wanted to do the most is within my grasp!

Ingrid
09-18-2005, 08:39 PM
Good for you! I love that you dismissed the mistakes and can see the possiblities!!

mintdee
09-18-2005, 08:40 PM

KellyK
09-19-2005, 07:15 AM
(I'm fairly sure Aidan is a chicO.) :shifty:

OOH....I just noticed the last sentence in your post, too, Aidan.....WHAT is the ONE thing in the world you most want to knit? INTRIIIIGUING!

(And, PLEASE dont say something that would make us all cry...like "I want to knit my mommy and daddy back together again"...or "I want to knit myself a real best friend" or "Id like to teach the world to knit in perfect harmony and knit the world a carbonated beverage".....) :(


Edited later....
You may or may not have already seen my post elsewhere about me being SO intrigued with Aidan's comment about the thing he most wants knit that I am now searching through all of his posts....

I know, stalking him like this is a LEEEETLE creepy, but...

OH OH OH! I think I may have found it!
It's either THIS (http://www.yarnfwd.com/bomber.html) OR THESE (http://knitty.com/ISSUEsummer04/PATTlolita.html).

Am I getting CLOSE, Aidan? :mrgreen: You REALLY need to start a blog here, sir!

brendajos
09-19-2005, 07:55 AM
lol....well Kelly I think you are on to something with the bomber jacket cuz i remember him posting that he really wants to make that too!


and....ummm..... :rollseyes: if it makes you feel better i was just sitting here reading his blog where he kept that sock picture until it dawned on me that it isn't very nice to just go around reading other people's stuff like that...lol :oops:

KellyK
09-19-2005, 08:22 AM
He offered us a LINK to his blog...I dont think he minds. I hope not, anyway! I bet if we keep posting in small type like this, he wont hear us!

Kome, very cool scarf, my friend
Sandra...WTG with the 1st project, too cute; again with a darling model!
AidanM-I can see someone coming along much like me! Jumped into socks shortly after beginning knitting, this means only one thing, my friend, you are now (and don't even realize it yet) a card carrying member of the Sock Knitting Addicts Club...welcome ;)
WTG EVERYBODY!!! :happydance: :happydance: :happydance:

Kome! I'm loving that scarf with your army green "search and destroy" tshirt. :roflhard:

I look, go do a chore (should be some stitches) and then keep coming back to look again. It reminded me of the painting of Kramer on Seinfeld. Where the old guy said "--Yet I can't look away." And for those of you that would go and look up the whole exchange I give you "The Kramer".

Woman:"I sense great vulnerability."
Man: "I see a parasite, a sexually depraved miscreant."
Woman: "His struggle is man's struggle."
Man: "He is a loathsome, offensive brute
--yet I can't look away."
Woman: "He transcends time and space."
Man: "He sickens me."
Woman: "I love it!"
Man: "I love it, too!

"Yet I cant look away! I love it!" Candace, or it could just be your modeling. :) Love that too!

That is so awesome Aidan! A GREAT BIG CONGRATULATIONS!!! :cheering:

AidanM
09-19-2005, 07:15 PM
Actually, what I've wanted to make more than anything is socks... :rofling: I like that they're so useable...not to mention terribly impressive when you KIP! :XX: I can crochet socks too, but I can't use WW yan with that because they come out too thick and baby yarn is outrageous around here. :shock:

I actually tried to make a sock out of cotton today, but when I turned my heel I messed up so that my purl side was to the outside and my knit side was to the inside. :doh: I do like cotton though, I think I may go on a spree and buy some sugar 'n' cream and similar things.

yup i wanted to set him up with my friend chris after just two blog posts...lol. i nearly even IMed him to tell him to go read the blog cuz they sound identical!...yeesh
Feel free. :blush:

09-20-2005, 11:14 AM
I don't get in here as much as I'd like- I have a hard enough time keeping up with the other threads!! You know, time on the computer is time NOT knitting................. :XX: :XX: :XX:

Anyway- Kelly, LOVE the top!! It turned out great.

Aidan- great job on the sock!! Socks are one of the things that I most want to knit too. I haven't tried it yet, but I'm close. I already bought some cool sock yarn for when I can do it........I think I can, I think I can, I think I can!

Koolbreeze, I think the summer swing top took me about 2 1/2 weeks to make. :rollseyes: It is REALLY simple. Those eyelets may look difficult, but they're really fun. I'd like to incorporate them into other patterns.

Aby
09-20-2005, 10:40 PM
:( Not real happy with how the top of the hat turned out. I'm not digging the way they decrease. I like the subtle spiral of the watchcap pattern, I'm used to. In any case, here is the completed set.

http://intheclique.com/dadhat2.jpg
http://intheclique.com/woolease.jpg

They look like two different colors in the pic but they aren't. The dye lots were perfect. It's just my camera.

Ingrid
09-20-2005, 10:43 PM
That was fast! They look great. The spiral of the other cap was unusual. This looks like most of the hats I've knit. He'll love them!

dustinac
09-20-2005, 10:47 PM
Looks great!!! I'm working on my first hat.. I don't like the decrease part seems like it takes forever.. I'm on 56 trying to get to 8 :?

Aby
09-20-2005, 11:00 PM
Thank you!

btw, it's not crooked.. I put it up on a tall cup and it was leaning. :lol:

InterNette

Very cool. I love the colors. I have never made a hat, but that looks challenging as well.

I think the hat and scarf both look great. Awesome color combos!! :thumbsup:

I was thinking about changing to cont knitting, but I've just got used to throwing it...*sigh* but I'm still not as fast as I'd like to be. All things come in time, I guess. ;)

Great projects! They look awesome! I can't wait till I get to post in here!

Well I finally got that hat done its not perfect though but I keep trying to tell myself its my first one.. I went well till the end shaping the top and then it looks a bit weird of course I didn't take a picture from that point LOL and its on a soccer ball cause I'm blocking it not sure your suppose to but figured it couldn't hurt :rollseyes: This is my little boy in his scarf to match and then my daughter will not wear the Poncho so her friend is wearing it.. ;)

dustinac
09-23-2005, 11:29 AM
Thanks guys!!

mintdee~ I used the toddler inst. under getting started to make the poncho but I CO 36 instead of 32 and I made it a little longer than 16 inches cause it wouldn't go over her head LOL just once I'd like to make something right the first time and not have to re-work it.. It was very simple to do and didn't take anytime at all.. I also did the 3 first/last rows Garter St in between is St. St although the first 3 sts and last 3 sts are garter... Not sure the edging is crocheted on right figured that out as I went LOL but it was realllllyyyy easy to do :D


Brendajosos he was sooo excited this morning when he came down and saw his hat was off the needles!! ohh I'm gonna go take a picture of his yarn for his sweater LOL its :shock: bright!!

Edited~ posted picture under whatcha knittin' but the colors don't really show how bright they are...

:happydance: :happydance: Wonderful jobs everybody :D !
Danielle, I love :heart: the colors in you Booga Bag; I've got to make some more, I grab mine all of the time, perfect little size ;)
Iamar, WOW, what beautiful colors & style of shrug; looks great on you, too bad you must give it away ;)
Dusti, everything looks toooo cute and don't u have a happy camper in the picture :thumbsup:

Ennomir, I decided to switch to Cont. knitting after knitting for around a year for preparation for fair isle knitting so that I will be able to carry yarn in each hand. I certainly did NOT like it for quite a while, the last 4 projects that I did took FOREVER because I was realllly slow and would switch back and forth between throwing & cont., but I've gotten it down with practice and have finally come to enjoy it and I suppose I have picked up a bit of speed to have knit around 50" on my scarf in a few days considering the cabling and seed st. All that said to say, watch Amy's video's and practice and it really does become as 2nd nature as throwing, just requires practice ;) . If I can do it, anyone can do it :D

09-23-2005, 09:19 PM
Yes ... I, too, am "addicted to the knit" ...

Here are three of my recent projects: a ruffled scarf, a collar/shawl & a baby blanket I crocheted in Broomstick Lace. I used a size #50 knitting needle as the 'broomstick', so does that count as knitting???

I've also got an eyeglass case, a Magknit necklace & a pillow finished and ready to be sewn together, as well as a tank top and another pillow half done. Hmmm - ADD anyone??? I started all of these a little over 2 months ago.

My cat would :heart: that kitty pi bed, because she loves to sit in/on things that are on other things...and since that kitty pi bed is ON the couch, it fits the definition...it looks great even if your kitty doesn't like it right now... (I'm sure she'll sneak into it when you're not looking)

I MUST get in here more often, everybody's making such pretty stuff!!

:cheering: for everyone!!

I FINALLY have a finished project!!! It's been so long. I've been working on an afghan, understandably a long-term project, and also Marnie's Pismo Hat (http://marniemaclean.com/patterns/Pismo/index.html), which I thought would be easy but is taking me forever.

I needed a project I could finish quick, so I made Cameron's Cap (http://sarahpeasley.com/freepatterns/cameronscap.pdf) for my son and I LOVE it!!! I made it in red, with one narrow and one wide white stripe in the 'body' of the hat. It has an i-cord knot at the top and is SO utterly cute I can't wait to try it on in the morning.

I wish I had a pic, but I have to wait for dh to bring the camera home. I would recommend this project to anyone - it is quick and easy and oh so cute. It has sizing for newborn, baby, toddler, child & adult!

:XX:

knittnkitten-lovin' your projects! I, too, have 'Ruffles' (with hat, wrist warmers & socks to go with) on my list to be done in knitpicks Merino Style in 'petal'...I :heart: it, too, too cute!!
femi-I love your kitty bed!! Poor kitty, but very cat-like...lol, they always must 1st 'act' like they don't like what you want them to like ;)
KQ..WTG! I know what you mean, afghans can take forever! I do the same thing, do something quick and fun while knitting an afghan so the afghan doesn't become boring! Jobs well done...can't wait to see the pics!!
WTG one & all :happydance: :happydance: :happydance:

I wonder when that happens?? Prolly longer than 3mos I've been knitting forever, and I still can't do it!That's true, the first slipper pattern I made (which was actually the first thing I made) was improvised completely, right after I learned to knit...you just have to be very willing to make mistakes... a LOT of mistakes :roflhard: ... (the dress was supposed to be a top for my 6yo neice - got about four rows done and realized I should have co about twice the stitches :oops: but I knew that I needed a shower gift, too, so I kept on with it, anyway.)

Thanks for all the kudos, guys... when I tweak the top a bit, I'll make sure I post the finished pattern for y'all.

lol...yes i know i can...thank you ladies for the encouragement though. The panic actually came in the fact that i just can't carry that around with me and work on it at a stop light or in the 2 minutes i am standing in line at the post office etc....and since that is when i have most of my knitting time i went through the "when the h#$@ would i ever get that finished?!" ;)

i will start them one of these days though....i am working on yet another tote now instead! :thumbsup:

If you look at this picture (http://www.knitpicks.com/Projects/Projects_Display_Yarn.aspx?itemid=30571220&yarnid=5420104)...you're supposed to do some ribbon rosette thingy for ties...but it doesn't show you (or tell you) too clearly. I nosed around on knitting blogs to see what others had done, and quite a few people opted for i-cord instead. Even though it's sooo tedious. :rollseyes:

I also finished this scarf (http://www.loop-d-loop.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Store_Code=LOS&Product_Code=LL-BLS&Category_Code=) on Saturday...a Christmas gift for a friend. If you need a chuckle, take a look at the gallery on that site...the models look so...so...well, I don't know quite how to describe them. :roflhard:

Anyway, it was a fun little project. I used Knitpicks Decadence. I wasn't sure if I had enough to double it like the pattern calls for, but even though it's a bulky yarn, it didn't feel bulky enough knitting with a single strand. So I did some weighing and praying, and actually had about three feet of yarn left over. Now *that* is cutting it close!

But look at it now!!!
:frog: :frog: :frog:
I almost didn't, but the more I looked at it the more I would have felt bad giving it to her like that... It looked ok on the front, but the back had a bad join where I had to start knitting back and forth on the circs, and I wasn't crazy about the sleeves (they were just armholes with a little cap on them :rollseyes: )... Once I tweak the top design, I'll try to write up the pattern and post it.

09-26-2005, 04:37 PM
:shock: OMG! How could you do that!?!? Oh! that just gives me an instant headache. I don't think I've ever frogged that much. I know I haven't. Couldn't do it. Nope. Never. If there was a boo-boo at a join or something like that -- I'd just stick a bow on it!

InterNette
09-26-2005, 04:59 PM
Julie your baby bonnet and your scarf are beautiful. I love the littel scarves that you slip through a loop, they look so neat on and dont end up on the floor when taking your coat off. Very nice, the icord is a nice idea, the ribbon would have ended up wrinkled all the time.

punkhippiemom
09-26-2005, 05:02 PM
I just kept reminding myself what I was told as a kid... If you're not sure if you did it good enough, you didn't. Go do it right. :roflhard: Of course, my mom was referencing cleaning the bathroom, but still... It's a gift, I had to.
Usually, if I can, I just crochet over my mistakes (I was going to add a ruffle to the little arm caps to make them a bit more substantial) but that join couldn't be fixed except by redoing it. :verysad:

But... we can rebuild it... we have the technology... we can make it better, tighter knit, more defined...

I found out we have a LYS....Brandy and I will be making a trip soon, to fiberbate :drooling:

The one we both like is in one of the books, in the back, it is shown with ivory and chocolate yarn, it has a diamond pattern. It is just a bit beyond my comfort level at this time. I will get there, I know it, but I can't have it done in time for Christmas. There is one in the other book near the back called Mocha something that we both love. She is going to look through again to see if she can choose one. We have the same taste....the same ones you marked I liked, and Brandy liked many of them!!!!


I am doing Marnie's Pismo hats for Stephen and Doug, one will get black and other will get brown, both will have sand as an accent color. My boys are boring, no crazy colors for them.....I ordered the stork that Marnie used.

I wish I was able to upload pics. But just imagine red and black mixed together (she is very dramatic..no pinks or peaches for her :rollseyes: )

Working with that stuff wasn't as scary as I thought. Now to continue on my Hogwarts scarf and a bulky cardigan and tank top all sitting on needles. I hope to get the cardigan done soon. New Mexico is starting to cool down and get breezy.

09-28-2005, 04:52 PM
This kind of felting is done by washing wool in hot water with lots of agitation. It causes the wool to shrink and tighten up.

The clogs are soooo neat! Is there a way to add soles to them, like leather or something?

Ingrid
09-28-2005, 06:46 PM
Adding leather soles is an option. Somebody was trying to find them, but I'm not sure they did. The ones at the Fiber Trends site were pretty expensive, if I recall.

I plan on using puff paint on the sole for traction.

InterNette

Don't most leather purses have a rougher texture on the inside? Couldn't you just cut up an icky one from a Goodwill and use that?

The felting was super-easy. I just put the clogs in a zippered mesh bag, put them in the washing machine with a couple pair of jeans and a little bit of detergent. It took about 20-25 minutes. I took them out after 10 minutes, stretched them out lengthwise, and then put them back in. Then I checked every 5 minutes until they were the size I wanted. Ta Da!!!

I am going to try puffy paint for traction on these ones, but I am looking for soles to try on another pair. My next ones will be size 13's- GULP- for my brother-in-law..................

Thank you all for the complements. Im very proud of this project!

Beutiful clogs! I don't know how to felt... Do you know a good book with very detailed instructions? My husband is goig to travel to Miami soon, so Im preparing a list of books and Im lost in felting.

I like Knit One Felt Too (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/1580174973/qid=1128048047/sr=8-1/ref=sr_8_1/104-9948978-7574314?v=glance&n=507846) and Felted Knits (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/1931499330/qid=1128048107/sr=2-1/ref=pd_bbs_b_2_1/104-9948978-7574314?v=glance&s=books). both have excellent instructions.

I just read through many, many pages of posts, and I can't even remember what I looked at. All I remember is that the work I saw was very well done!!

Some day, I, too, will have another FO to post. :help: I need to stop starting multiple largish projects at the same time.

Those fuzzy clogs look great. what a wonderful idea!

Here's my first ever finished pair of socks. I like them, but the yarn pills a bit. Guess that's why it was cheaper :rollseyes:
The pair for my dad is now in progress and I'm using Regia for those, plus I got some sock yarn from my brother today for birthday. Can anyone see another addiction? :lol:

Oh my god.... how can you make so many clogs??? I'd go crazy and mutter about clog making in the asylum if I had to make that many. Heck! I haven't even finish the front to my sweater yet. Bah!

Of course.... I guess only doing 3 or 4 rows a day is a bit of slacking, huh? :rollseyes:

Your bag is cute!

I just learned how to post pics in the past month or so, (so I'm certainly no expert) but there must be a place where you have your pictures stored to downsize them. On my Kodak program it gives you an option in the saving area of a range from 100 percent to Best for Web. Or you can right click on the picture and check for properties. That may give you a place to down size them.

brendajos
10-04-2005, 10:55 AM
that bag is adorable! i store mine on photobucket.com. it is great because i can link them to just about any site and it doesn't take any space up on here. there is a tool on there that will edit the pic down for you too if it looks too big for posting. i haven't had to do that with too many of mine though since storing them on there!

Here is my first finished knitting project. I went to an open house
for knitters on Saturday and they showed me how to cast on and how to knit a little then set me up to make a hat.
I posted in the super newbie help section as I goofed up and they helped a lot.
I finished it today at the class.

Thanks Julie and Ingrid,
I decided to try another had but without the circular needles and with much smaller yarn. I know it will take me much longer but I want to really get the knitting down and then I will try a scarf and who knows maybe a sweater.
I really need to get back to that quilt though.

Hi Kemp,

I've been looking for a pattern for high socks like yours!

Is it a free pattern, and what yarn did you use? My teenage nieces would go NUTS over those socks! :happydance:

Thanks,

Mary

kemp
10-04-2005, 05:25 PM
Thanks Mary...I made it up! I did take notes this time though...I plan on writing it up in the next couple of days and it will be in the "free patterns" section on my blog. I used Opal Petticoat (http://www.fncyarn.com/opal_petticoat.html). The finished sock weighs 42 grams and the yarn comes in 100g skeins so it should take just one skien for a pair.

I am SO-O-O jealous of your sewing room, Suzie1955! Wow, that's a fabric palace. A hat is an ambitious first project. Nice work!
