Autumn Rose is COMPLETE!

Friday, November 25th, 2011

Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay!

I haven’t completed as many finished objects I would have liked this year but I did complete one big one :-D

Autumn Rose This project didn’t take as long as you’d think. For about three months, it stayed in a box from the move. I packed it up in late July and unpacked it in our new home. It stayed in my box o’ WIPs mainly because of:

Autumn Rose Pullover

They. Never. End.

All these ends. Now I know knitters from centuries prior just tied them and let the wool felt. Great. But my control freak tendencies had an image of a hole growing when I’m away from home and then the unraveling started. So yeah. I wove them all in. As one can imagine, it took a long time.

Autumn Rose

Pattern:Autumn Rose Pullover by Eunny Jang from Simply Shetland 4: At Tomales Bay
My Ravelry Project Page
Yarn(s): Long story. See below.
Colorway(s): Long story. See below.
Needle(s): US 2½ – 3.0 mm & US 4 – 3.5 mm
Casted On: May 8, 2011
Casted Off: November 20, 2011
Modifications: I made everything longer. Longer sleeves. Longer torso. If I were to do this all over again, I’d pull the neckline up. Kinda wish I did that. That said, I’m still quite proud of the end result. I wore it to work once but I think it’s more suitable to wear with cords at home. It’s just too warm for my office that runs a little warm anyway.

Autumn Rose

I had to pull out the neckline and redo it. But hey…as a result, I learned the importance and purpose of a neckline cuff. I picked up about 80 extra stitches along the neckline and the sweater practically fell off my shoulders. Re-did it and the new neckline helped bring the already long neckline more together. Phew!

Now colors.

I love the Knitpicks Autumn Rose Mineral version of this sweater. I even ordered the yarn in Knitpicks Pallete kit for this sweater. Turns out, I wasn’t all impressed by how thin the yarn was running. The resulting fabric wasn’t as strong as I’d like it. So I converted the Knitpicks Mineral kit and used Brownsheep Naturspun Sport. Below is a chart.

Scotch Broom White Snow

I really enjoyed knitting this sweater with this yarn. Naturespun Sport is a more full yarn resulting in a more dense fabric.

Autumn Rose
I consider this sweater to be a significant feat. First full fair isle sweater for an adult. I made significant modidifications in length and they were done well. I had expressed some issues with the sleeves and from what you can see above and below, they do, in fact match up.

Autumn Rose

While I might not be 10000% pleased with the long neckline, I’m still quite proud of myself. Gorgeous feminine sweater that fits me quite well :-D I’m very much looking forward to applying the lessons I learned with this sweater to Venezia :-D

One Down….Three more to go…

Wednesday, November 16th, 2011

We adopted Layla and Luna in 2005. Back then, I was quilting more than knitting. I started picking up knitting more seriously at the weeeee end of 2006. By the time 2007 came around, the knitting bug hit hard and it became my primary craft. Then, in 2008, I said, out loud, “You know honey, it would be great if I knitted each of us a stocking for Christmas.” Cute idea right?

And naturally I didn’t actually start one till 2009:

365.200

Note: This pic was taken 8/23/09

I’m not proud. It took Jermaine and me buying our house to realize I really really wanted all of us to have a stocking this Christmas.
Jermaine’s, I knew, would be the most difficult. His name is just too long–8 letters. Why does that make a difference? I wanted our stockings all to have our names shown on one half of the stocking. Jermain’s name required about 70 stitches, so that doubled would make for a 140 stitch stocking. Depending on what yarn I’d use, sizing and shaping would vary.

So there’s that fine line between one hand where I make him a stocking out of fingering weight yarn, size 1 needles and it taking forever OR, on the other hand, I make him one that ends up so big it can fit Luna.

I then found designs by 2 Sticks and a String on Ravelry and I knew these were the patterns I wanted for our family stockings! :-) I grew up with stockings a little bigger than her planned schematic but overall, I really like the designs!

And with this, I present Jermaine’s finished Christmas Stocking:

Jermaine's Stocking

Jermaine's Stocking

Pattern: A NEW Dad’s Christmas Stocking by Dorene Delaney Giordano from her Ravelry Store (Note – This is a toe-up pattern)
My Ravelry Project Page
Yarn(s): KnitPicks Wool of the Andes Sport
Colorway(s): Aurora Heather (green) & Dove Heather (white/gray)
Needle(s): US 1 – 2.25 mm & US 2½ – 3.0 mm
Casted On: October 7, 2011
Casted Off: November 5, 2011
Modifications:

  1. This pattern was based on repeats of 20. So to add some width because of my preference and because of the length of Jermaine’s name, I expanded the stocking to 120 stitches, as opposed to the 80 it called for. So for the instep, heel and “leg” portion, I used size 2.5 needles. After the border on the top, but before Jermaine’s name, I changed to size US 1-2.25 needles and increased twenty stitches evenly by making one stitch after every six stitches. I was concerned that the stocking sizing would look off but with the needle size decrease, everything coincided nicely.
  2. 120 stitches made for an awkward heel flap, so I ripped it and did a short row heel (I mean it’s not like Jermaine is actually going to wear this. It’s for stuffing present(s) in! ).
  3. I also did an i-chord bind off. This was a first time doing this bind-off for me. Sure, it’s not the quickest one in the world, but it gives the stocking a very nice edging. It’s curling over a little bit, as you can see so perhaps I should go up a needle size the next time I use it? I don’t know.  But this certainly won’t be the last time I use it.

I know this project came with a lot of false starts. (Did you notice the first pic? How there’s no gold in the final stocking? That was Jermaine’s request and I was more than happy about that. Never been a fan of golds/yellows/oranges.) But I am quite pleased with the end result.

Annnnnnnnnnnnd I’m half way done with my stocking :-D

Laura's Stocking

I’m Back – FO – Tiled Cowl

Thursday, November 3rd, 2011

No soon did I insist on blogging more did work pick up. Opps.

Well work pays for the yarn habit so it therefore trumps blogging.

I finished a cowl, though! yay!

One of my favorite things to do on Ravelry is to stalk friends in the “friend activity” feature. I know using the verb “stalk” could allude to not-so-great associations but I’m really just like keeping track of people’s progress on projects and what they’ve queued. Knitting inquisitiveness, if you will.

So my friend Sarah, I noticed, magic linked Knit Picks Chroma and I clicked for more information. Don’t know why…I just did.

Turns out she needed test knitters for her loverly cowl, the Tiled In Cowl.

I was able to help her with the test knitting and this was my final result:

Test Knitting Cowl

Pattern: Tiled In Cowl by SJ from her Ravelry Store
My Ravelry Project Page
Yarn(s): Blue Moon Fiber Arts Socks that Rock Lightweight & Handmaiden Fine Yarn Casbah Sock
Colorway(s): Sweet Pea, Blue Moon Fiber Arts Socks that Rock Lightweight, Rockin’ Sock Club installment from May, 2010 & Kaleidoscope, respectively.
Needle(s): US 3 – 3.25 mm
Casted On: September 14, 2011
Casted Off: October 1, 2011
Modifications: none

Here’s a closer-up version of the cowl:

Test Knitting Cowl The pattern is written wonderfully. AND I even learned a new skill–carrying floats:

Carrying the pattern yarn

Carrying the background yarn

So learning that alone made this process very very worth it. I was taught it real quickly once. Then I forgot it. This pattern requires about 19-stitch floats so I felt the need to re-learn it. Because I learned a new skill, I very much appreciated the process of knitting this cowl.

If you’re getting the impression that I’m not too pleased with the final result, you’re right. IT’S NOT BECAUSE OF THE PATTERN but more because of the yarn selection.

The designer flat out says in the pattern “Pick a multi-colored yarn with long color repeats.” And what did I do? I pick a colorway, that, while gorgeous, has only two-inch color lengths.

So Final Thoughts:

  • Wonderfully written pattern.
  • Take the designers advice–Use yarn with long repeats.
  • That said, be mindful of yarns that are single ply. I was nervous about using Chroma and/or Mini-Mochi because they do not tend to hold up when you use them to sew ends down. (I casted off for a sock using Mini-mochi once and the yarn kept falling apart.

Go see for yourself and buy this wonderful cowl pattern :-)

 

I haz a FO! I haz a FO!

Wow things have certainly been busy here.

Jermaine and I are packing up our lives to move into our new house at the end of the month:

What fresh hell...
 We’ve been packing up all our stuff…picking up paint colors, searching for sales, going to liquor stores for boxes and Home Depot as well. Oy!

But in the midsts of all this craziness, I finally have a finished object. My last one was from April.

In and Out Socks

Pattern: In and Out Socks by Cookie A’s Designs from Knit. Sock. Love.
My Ravelry Project Page
Yarn(s): Blue Moon Fiber Arts Socks that Rock Lightweight
Colorway(s): Skein with No Name, Rockin’ Sock Club installment from November, 2010
Needle(s): US 1 – 2.25 mm
Casted On: July 4, 2011
Casted Off: August 7, 2011
Modifications: none

This was one fun pair of socks to knit! The winding, cable-like pattern is what attracted me to the pattern in the first place.

In and Out Socks

And something I found particularly interesting was the way the heel flap was developed:

In And Out

The winding cable-like pattern then POP a heel flap!! That part of the sock almost made me giddy as I was knitting it.

I enjoyed this pattern very much. I seem to be on a sock craze of late. And a STR and Cookie A. one as well now that I think of it. Explanation of socks–well I guess that’s pretty easy. It’s summer and gross out. Socks are portable and small and most likely I’m finishing up someone’s Christmas present so that’s a win win right there. I’m inspired to knit with Socks that Rock sock yarn of late because I’m drawn to many patterns that are friendly to multi-color colorways, which also explains my draw to Cookie A. patterns as well.

What will be next is Cookie’s Raven Swirl Socks with March, 2011′s Rockin’ Sock Club installment:

Rockin' Sock Club - May, 2011

On a personal note, I won’t be back for a while we move. I look forward to showing off my Autumn Rose Pullover  with all the ends woven in and a lovely neck band:

I made my first toy

He’s/She’s a minion!

My Minion
Pattern: Mah Minion by Kat Lewinski
My Ravelry Project Page
Yarn(s): Scraps of Cascade 220, Cotton Ease and I have not idea?
Colorway(s): Yellow, Light blue and black
Needle(s): US 3 – 3.25 mm (body) US 1 – 2.25 mm (arms)
Casted On: March 26, 2011
Casted Off: March 26, 2011
Modifications: none

I loooooooooooooooooooove the movie, Despicable Me. Sure it’s incredibly predictable as are most animated movies but I still love it. The minions are adorable and become even more adorable with the three children, Margo, Edith and Agnes, come to live with Gru. So when I saw this pattern on Ravelry, I just had to make one.

My Minion

Layla sniffs him/her out

Now the eyes….a Ravelry user can notice a wide variety of different kind of eyes people used. Some knit little eyes. Some painted them on buttons, as the pattern instructs. I used buttons with googly eyes. :-) There was a small button lying around that I used and I asked my darling husband if I can take a spare one off a tshirt I haven’t seen him wear in years. He was fine with it. (husband win!)

Now there’s a part of the craft world that I start to feel uncomfortable with. That is anything having to do with paint and adhesives. Paint isn’t that bad but often when I need paint, it involves going to three different stores till I find what I need. Projects that deal with glue always get messy for me. Luckily, with this project, I used Pioneer’s Embellishment Glue Stick (that I got at Michaels) to glue the googly eyes to the buttons and the buttons onto the body. To “paint” the buttons silver, I used a Pilot Silver Marker. Originally, I went to the grocery store hoping to get some nail polish. They didn’t have silver, as one can imagine. I went into their small school supply section and found the silver marker and went PHEW!

Jermaine was very excited when I got this little guy done. Because, after all, HE’S ADORABLE!!!! He asked me where I was going to keep it and I said “At work. It’s appropriate–we’re all minions” He looked a little disappointed so me thinks I might be making another one–one for the home (and hopefully the kittehs won’t turn it into a toy) and one for work.

And with this, I leave you with a Minion Movie. Unfortunately, I can’t embellish this into my blog because this is straight from the Despicable Me Channel. But here’s why they’re so damn cute! I had a growing joke with my boss Gina and my coworker buddy Andrea about this particular movie. I used to be obsessed with Skittles. With the red and purple ones only because they’re the only flavors that matter, as far as I’m concerned. I’d then give the other, less-important, flavors to Andrea and Gina. I then showed them that movie about bananas with the premise “Replace bananas with skittles and you got us!!….only we share” :-D

Now thoughts on a name for this minion???

FO – Another Pair of Gumdrops

Saturday, March 19th, 2011

I’ve since finished two projects that I wanted to share but this week, I’ve been getting over a cold with one wicked cough I’m feeling better but the cough certainly isn’t gone.

Just in time for St. Patrick’s day, I finished a pair of socks for my buddy, Debbi.

Gumdrops Pattern: Gumdrop Socks by JC Briar from Blue Moon Fiber Arts Rockin’ Sock Club
My Ravelry Page
Yarn(s): Socks that Rock, Heavyweight
Colorway(s): Ms. LaRock
Needle(s): US 1 – 2.25 mm
Casted On: January 12, 2011
Casted Off: March 8, 2011
Modifications: I just did a round toe. That was the only modification I did.

Gumdrops

Debbi had said she wanted a pair of thick socks but not a pair that was too high. Sure I had more yarn to make them taller but it’s not what she would have wanted. I knit the smaller version of this pattern because the yarn is so thick and it turned out well. Luckily, we’re the same shoe size and these fit nice and snug for me and for her too.

I made this pair of socks super snug because Socks that Rock Heavyweight has a tendency to grow.

Gumdrops as you can see I made a Sl1/K1 and K1/Sl1 sole. That makes for a super squishy sole but you’ll also notice that it’s about three inches, not that very long. I hope Debbi didn’t think they were too short.

And speaking of Rockin’ Sock Club Patterns, I started Dusty Corners from 2010′s sock club. They’re just flying off the needles. I absolutely love this colorway too

Dusty Corners

FO – Icelandic Star Cardigan

Sunday, March 6th, 2011

Finally! A Finished Object! A cardigan that flew off the needles

Icelandic Star

Pattern:Icelandic Star by Sarah Hoadley, Interweave Knits, Winter 2009
My Ravelry Project Page
Yarn(s): Cascade 220
Colorway(s): 3.7 skeins of 9474 Plum, .4 skeins of 2410 Purple, .45 skeins of 9427 Duck Egg Blue and .4 skeins of 7920 Shaded Spruce
Needle(s): US 7 – 4.5 mm (ribbing), US 9 – 5.5 mm (stockinette, non-stranded areas), and US 10½ – 6.5 mm (for stranded areas
Casted On:
February 5, 2011 (during the Super Bowl to be exact)
Casted Off: February 23, 2011
Modifications: The pattern calls for stranded knitting on the right and wrong side resulting in purled stranded areas. ummm….NO! So I added a front steek for the opening so that I was able to knit this whole cardigan in the round.

I did learn something very important with this project–the importance of fair isle blocking.

See, I often wondered what the point of it is, given that there is no ace pattern that needs to open up. Since fair isle is often so dense, I wondered what good it would do. Also I feared that colors would bleed. But…observe the before and after shots:

Icelandic Star

Note the bunchiness around the stranded knitting

Icelandic Star

Ahh...it expanded!

Icelandic Star

I enjoyed knitting this cardigan. Its filled with my favorite colors too, which brings me to something else I realized. The original colors for this cardigan weren’t really me. So how do you pick colors that will give enough contrast but still be you. So, thanks to Ravelry, I found this color palette on the site Colour Lovers

WineInAPond_-_widths
Color by COLOURlovers

So…next time you’re stuck on rearranging, changing, adjusting colors, Google “color palettes” and you’ll be helped, immensely. Might not be instant but after some searching you’ll find a great substitute.

Here’s one more shot of the back, my favorite part :-)

Icelandic Star

And, as it turns out, the buttons from Joya Fibers in California were a great choice!

Icelandic Star

Have a great remaining weekend everyone. I hope to have some other finished objects soon too. Yaaaaaaaaaaay

First Finished Object of 2011

Tuesday, January 18th, 2011

….was a shawl. Oh la la

Does it really count if I had started it in December? I think it does. Pardon the pun but I’m not too knitpicky about what I consider an FO. I finished it in 2011 so it’s a Finished Object for 2011.

Leaves Dancing Modell

Pattern: Leaves Dancing Modell 118/9 by Junghans-Wolle
My Ravelry Project Page
Yarn(s): The Sanguine Gryphon Skinny Bugga! 1.25 grams of it, in fact, that added up to 558 yards
Colorway(s): Caerulea
Needle(s): US 6 – 4.0 mm
Casted On: November 8, 2010
Casted Off: January 1, 2011
Modifications: I did an two extra repeats of the main chart as opposed to the recommended two.

This pattern is written in German, which can easily lead an English speaking reader to go and/or I can’t quite blame anyone for having that reaction. The recipient, my buddy Jess, said the same thing. But rest assured, dear knitters, there is a translation here. Albeit brief, but I still found it quite helpful when I started knitting this puppy. All I really needed was a translation of the symbols used in the charts and after that, I was fine.

Leaves Dancing ModellIt was one very fun knit after language barriers were passed. The pattern kept my attention for long enough but it neither bored me nor overwhelmed me. Hooray. I do wonder if I could have gotten another repeat out of the yarn I had. I probably could have. I had 3/4 of a skein left over but I certainly didn’t want to find myself 35 yards short and having to rip it out.

This shawl was for my buddy Jess. She’s a coworker who has since moved on to another department on campus. We’ve kept in touch, of course, and she even came over to my apartment to learn to knit:

Note Luna’s coaching as she learns….

Jess was always there to hear me vent about wedding drama as I was planning it and has been a great friend this past year so I was pleased to make this for her. But I don’t think Luna was too thrilled to see the shawl go. She sleeps on my knitting like any kitteh but with this shawl in particular, she had an unusual connection to

Jess' Shawl

Anywho…YAY I’m finally up to date with all my finished objects. I hope to have Cerisara done soon.

2010 In Review

Sunday, January 16th, 2011

So here it is! 2010 in review

Finished Objects - 2010 Hats – 5
Socks – 13
Shawls – 5
Baby Items – 2
Cardigans  – 2
Cowl – 1
For a grand total of 28 Finished Objects!

Overall, I’m pretty happy with all the items I’ve finished. I won’t lie – I wish I was able to finish more things. Perhaps I can blame our wedding on that? I gave up every Saturday from August till October 17 planning it? Turns out it was well worth it, of course, but it put a damper on the knitting. And goodness! I had no idea I was doing that many socks. 13 pairs

Here’s a lovely sweater that didn’t quite make it:

Hallett's Ledge I am a little disappointed that this didn’t make it into the 2010 finished object pile but it had some major arm issues. It was just too tight from the forearm up. After two reblocking attempts, it just didn’t work out. So…I’m starting the sleeves all over again using a bigger gauge. Sure I hope to finish it pretty soon but I also wouldn’t hold my breath either. Finishing the second sleeve is often taxing because I already made one. Now to make two more sleeves might be a little exhausting. It’s going to be gorgeous, though. When I did try it on, I did notice that I got the lengths right where I want them. Perhaps, I should try to think of that as I knit a second pair of sleeves.

I have some 2011 knitting resolutions

  1. Finish more items, of course
  2. Knit more things that are office friendly. I have wonderful sweaters that look great with jeans but I want more sweaters and cardigans to wear at work. What does this mean? More sweaters with negative ease and/or made with thinner yarns.
  3. I’d like to do more of my Christmas knitting earlier as opposed to busting my chops to get them done on December 23.

But of all the resolutions, I’m going to be putting a lot of my emphasis on #2. I really want more sweaters and cardigans done this year. So far, so good:

Cerisara This is my Cerisara. I’m making it with Berroco Ultra Alpaca, a yarn I can’t seem to get enough of. As I knit it, I’m getting in touch with my process knitter as this cardigan is constructed…in a way I’m not used to. It’s top down, which is interesting enough, but it’s still constructed in a way I’m not familiar with so it’s been a little bit of an adventure.

I’m also reknitting my Henley perfected with a more fancy and lightweight yarn so that I can wear it to the office. I’m knitting it in the round so the first five or six inches will be straight stockinette, but it will look great once it’s done.

Henley Perfected

I hope to have Cerisara done soon because it seems to be flying off the needles. Hooray!

Final Two FOs of 2010

Tuesday, January 11th, 2011

OK OK I’ll finally post my last two finished objects of 2010–a cowl and a pair of socks for Rose.

(Pardon my defensiveness..God knows I’ve been meaning to post this just finally got to it now.)

FO #1 – A Cowl for me

Candle Flame Cowl

Pattern: Candle Flame Cowl by Julia Allen
My Ravelry Project Page
Yarn(s): Cascade 220
Colorway(s): A Purple? I know that’s really not helpful seeing as how Cascade has about 30 or so purples but….
Needle(s): US 8 – 5.0 mm
Casted On: December 18, 2010
Casted Off: December 18, 2010
Modifications: none

I originally made this for a Jermaine’s Secret Santa he had going on at his job. It was either that or he was going to give his Secret Santa some “smelly lotion.” I know –to each their own but I know that I’m pretty sensitive to smells. “Smelly lotions” have a tendency to give me some of the worst headaches ever. So I was like “oh no hon…you’re not doing that to this poor girl.” Turns out, she doesn’t work at his store any more so yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay I haz a cowl now!

Candle Flame Cowl It’s a pretty easy pattern. I learned it after maybe one repeat?? Very stretchy fabric results too. So if you’re scrambling for a quick present for someone like I was, this is a good bet. It’s a pretty pattern too.

And, finally, Rose’s socks.

This girl looooooooooooooooooooooooooooooves socks I make for her. She gets them dry cleaned bless her heart, which is more than I can say about hand knit socks I’ve made.

Dionysus Socks

Pattern: Dionysus Socks by Abby Frelich
My Ravelry Project Page
Yarn(s): Blue Moon Fiber Arts Socks that Rock Lightweight
Colorway(s): Happy Go Lucky, The Socks That Rock Rockin’ Sock Club Installment for January, 2010
Needle(s): US 1 – 2.25 mm
Casted On: September 25, 2010
Casted Off: December 22, 2010
Modifications: Originally, this pattern called for a 72-stitch cast on. Upon looking at the pattern, I noticed that some of it was going to be ribbing on each side of the sock, so I got rid of 8 stitches of that ribbing to make a 64-stitch sock. I also did a short row heel. The cables used were 3×3 so I thought it would be too thick to have that much fabric on the heel.

This was one fun pattern to make. I thoroughly enjoyed making these, even if 3×3 cables on size ones sometimes proved difficult.

Dionysus Socks

And plus, these socks are a little sentimental for me. I knit them on our wedding day.

Knitting at my wedding I look like I’m about to cut a bitch, no?

Well….there’s a funny story behind this.

(Fist off, this was taken the morning of the wedding. I had to wear a button down shirt, of course, because I couldn’t pull a shirt over my hair without messing it up. Kai fine. The only button down shirt I owned used to belong to Jermaine so yeah….I was dressed like a dude for a majority of the wedding morning and early afternoon)

The caterer was running late. I was freaking out. Turns out she was freaking out too waiting for a delivery (we laugh about it now but during that time, panic.)

Jermaine’s best man, who has known me since I was 12 was trying his best to calm me down as I was panicing about the caterer not there yet. He goes “Laura, you’re getting married in the boonies. There are plenty of squirrels, worst comes to worse. All I’d need, then, is a grill.”

Bless his heart and all but NO!

I call that my “If-you-say-’squirrel’-one-more-time” look.

And I just so happen to be knitting Rose’s socks too One of Jermaine’s aunts, after seeing me get panic-y was like “um…laura….you should knit a little to calm down.” and that was the project I pulled out. I think the fact that someone had to remind me that knitting has healing qualities proves just how panic-y I was.

Anyway, these socks pull at my heart strings Not only are they for a wonderful friend of mine who loves her handknit socks more than anyone I know but I also knit them on a very important day in my life.

Here’s a pic of Rose and Debbi in their shawls I made them and gave to them on our wedding day too.

Rose and Debbi

I saw Deb's necklaces and it was like she KNEW she was getting a blue shawl that matched it perfectly. haha

Ok I think I’ll wrap this up. Coming up next – All the finished objects of 2010. I might be late in doing it but I still want to get reflective. Annnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnd my first FO of 2011, Jess’ shawl.
