Materials: GGH Merino Soft, color 33.
Pattern by me. 100% completed.
and me still kind of sleepy and scary looking.
This cabled cap used far less than one skein of Curious Creek Arusha. I think I have enough left over to make some cabled pulse warmers.... I guess you'll see soon enough.
Designed by me for Desiree using Cascade Pima Tencel for the poncho and Classic Elite La Gran Mohair for the flower.
3.5 skeins Cascade Pima Tencel in Pink
1 skein Classic Elite La Gran Mohair (for flower)
24" circular size 9 US
You can use the same needles for the flower or bump up. I used size 11US for the flower.
Pattern will be in my book, out in early spring '05.
Based on a pattern in Sally Melville's The Knit Stitch, but modified by me (I didn't need them to go all the way to my elbows, now did I?)
Yarn = Koigu PPPM color P611x2
Yarn = Colinette Point 5
Pattern from Hand Knits for the Home by Caroline Birkett
The name? I was thinking "Point 5 Blanket Babylon" or "Babylon 5 Blanket" and so it shall be nicknamed "Babylon" and that will be that.
Both use Lana Grossa Meilenweit. One in Cotton with size 15 needles, one in wool with size 13 needles. Same pattern. Both done.
Simple shawl using Karabella Gossamer.
Jane Ellison's Gloria. From one of her Noro books. Using Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran and Noro Silk Garden. It's too big, sadly. Kind of forgot what size I was. But! it's fine for layering, so I guess it's not too too big.

Yarn: Trekking color 69
(you might want to modify the heel if using this pattern - the M1R makes holes)
I also modified it by making a deep V of ribbing in the calf, which turned out great. Also, for toe up folks, in order to not have a tight top of your ribbing, try this when casting off:
K2, bind off 1, m1, bind off 1, k1, bind off 1, p1, bind off 1, p1, bind off 1, repeat. By adding stitches and also casting off in rib, it makes a more - what, fluted? - top of your ribbing which won't be tight and lame.
2 skeins Soft Chunky by Twinkle color 10, kelly green
size 35 needles.
Note - the chart in the book is wrong. Go by the directions instead of the chart, or modify the chart yourself (it's a pretty obvious mistake).

Using a bunch of different colors. I was going to make a sideways stripey cowl neck sleeveless swing tank, but a fraction of the way through it was already over it. I did, however, like the way the colors were looking, so I just striped a scarf. Now that I'm done I'm realizing it's a bit neutrally tame for me, so I'm either going to gift it (no prob) or save it in case I need the yarn. I have hell of leftovers, so I'm gonna make some kind of blanket - either a DK version of a Babette or Ribbons Baby Blanket by Fiber Trends. Yeah, just what I need, another blanket in the queue.
needles - US2
yarn - Opal Rainforest sock yarn, the tiniest bit.
