finished october - december 2008


my latest FOs with you... all made with yarns i ordered from richard at ColourMart

except for the cash/silk cardigan which was air-dried, all of these were hand washed in hot water and then tossed in the washer & dryer and came out lovely fulled and soft and warm and generally gorgeous... okay, here goes:

made from colourmart 10/28NM heavy dk wt 30/70 cashmere/wool navy, 5/14NM heavy dk wt 30/70 cashmere/wool nero navy and 6/20NM dk wt 50/50 cashmere/wool fuchsia

christmas dress 2008

my christmas dress! from a drops design pattern that i modified a little and embellished with a lace edging from a japanese knitting pattern book (mentioned in an earlier post, i believe =). i wore it on the 25th for all the family christmas celebrations and i really liked it! now i'm pondering if it's really only a christmas dress or if it could maybe be worn at other times, too...

pink dress 1

the first dress i knit! and not only the first dress, but the first garment i produced that is actually wearable and that people other than me like! and it's soooo warm and soft and nice... of course, i intended to wear it as a dress but it turned out a little short so now i wear it with jeans and i think that looks just fine.

navy & pink blazer

a blazer/cardigan "Prepster" by Fay Lin from the "Stitch 'n' Bitch - The Happy Hooker" by Debbie Stoller, which i modified a little to my liking. getting the sleeves to fit in the armhole properly took a few tries on this one, but i'm really pleased with the outcome. i wear it a lot and am already looking at colours for the next one! =)

daisy stitch mittens mitts

two pairs of mittens, one fingerless and one not. the pattern for the fingerless ones is "Fetching" by Cheryl Niamath, from knitty. the other is "Daisy Stitch Hand Warmers" by Whitney Van Nes from the purl bee and i modified it to make mittens. warm! nice! i wear the fingerless ones a LOT and the others when it's colder. i've also worn the daisy stitch ones over the fingerless ones for added warmth which works fine, until i try to remove only the top mitten layer. =) ah well...
made with colourmart 10/36NM dk wt 55:45 cash/silk lemonade

lemonade cardigan

and finally and most recently, a cardigan/shrug made from the lovely cash/silk mix that is shiny and soft and a joy to work with and to waer. i made it shrug larger as specified in the pattern to turn it into a cardigan, next time i'd probably just make the next size up and still make the ribbing parts longer, but for now it's fine and in summer over less and lighter clothing will be even nicer. i also made an i-cord chinese knot closure but haven't attached it yet. for now, i'm wearing it open or close it woth a brooch, but open is nicer, i think, because closed it looks like it's just a bit too small... maybe i'll add to the ribbing. we'll see...
