Annette

This has been completed for a while but I only just got around to photographing it. Pattern: Annette Size: S (knit at smaller gauge to give about 32″ size) Yarn: slightly less than 5 x Knit Picks Shine Sport in Orchid Needle: 4.0mm Modifications: Started with 4 rows of seed stitch instead of 2. Did […]

Almost Annette

This is Annette from Knitty Summer 2009. It’s almost complete. I just need to sew on the buttons and weave in ends and I’m done! Couldn’t resist taking a few pictures first though. Annnd I’ve begun swatching for my next project! The yarn is Elsebeth Lavold Hempathy and it came out pretty soft after throwing […]

Razor Cami Update

Since my first razor cami post, I’ve frogged the entire thing and started from scratch by casting on 132 stitches instead of the original 156. Tried it on after a few inches and it definitely fitted much better than the first try. Knitted to 14″ before dividing for armholes and that’s when disaster struck. Somehow […]

Razor Cami

Yes, yes, another WIP. I started the Razor Cami during the weekend and have knitted about 8″ so far. It’s a pretty mindless knit so I can zone out in front of the TV and just knit and knit. I used the Russian join when joining a new ball of yarn but it seems a […]

Palindrome Scarf

After frogging the short-lived Sweet Pea Shawl, I stuffed the yarn into a basket and left it there to languish forgotten. Well, not for long anyway. I took it out to start on the Irish Hiking Scarf and realised that the yarn was in one big tangled mess. I spent half a day untangling it […]

SnB: Violet Beauregard Update

I thought I’ll do a little update on the Violet Beauregard I started two weeks ago. I’ve actually completed the first colour change for the scalloped border but as I’ve mentioned in my failed Sweet Pea Shawl post, I suck at crocheting shells so I frogged the border and tried again. I tightened my tension […]

SnB: Sweet Pea Shawl

I got tired of working on my Violet Beauregard so I started on the Sweet Pea Shawl which was also from Stitch ‘N Bitch Crochet: The Happy Hooker. I frogged it after completing only the first row of shells because I hated how the shells looked. They were really loose and loopy. I don’t think […]

SnB: Violet Beauregard

I’m beginning to recall what I bought all those Knit Picks yarn for. One of the projects I had in mind was Happy Hooker’s Violet Beauregard skirt. I had some trouble with the first increase round. Basically, I’m pattern-challenged and had an extra dc in my row and couldn’t figure out why. Thank goodness the […]

No Longer a Knit Picks Virgin

That’s right. I’ve popped my Knit Picks cherry. I participated in my first Knit Picks yarn spree organised by Lois and spent enough to bust more than a month’s worth of yarn budget (I’ve a teeny weeny budget). Now that I’m holding the yarn in my hands, I can finally understand what all the fuss […]
