I have a hat! And after three years, I've finally found a good, simple pattern for this yarn.


ignore the toilet


ignore my face

I present the ultimate in my geekdom: a knitted tribute to CM Punk. Tis my first experience with KnitPicks, and I'm in love. Andean Silk is fantastically soft and knits easily and quickly. Definitely going to continue business with them :D

To make myself feel better, I plan future knitting projects.

I want to make this:


and I want to experiment with KnitPicks newest yarn. It all looks so smooshy and beautiful and soft, but I need some opinions.

The multicolored yarns are handpainted, so they're not self striping. The colors would be in a more random pattern.

There are several possible color combinations.
Option #1 )

Option #2 )

Option #3 )

Option #4 )

Option #5 )

Option #6 )

What I want to do is use the Stroll hand painted yarn (the multicolored one) on either the lace top/bottom or as the middle part and then use a solid color on the other section. I don't know which would look better. Opinions? And what combination is your favorite?

Working on some absolutely dorky knitting projects, as well as a couple presents for [livejournal.com profile] random_nexus and [livejournal.com profile] kynn.

I even bought a graph paper notebook so I can sketch these things XD

If they work out, I'll post the patterns or pictures and offer to sell some customized ones >.>

Buuuuuuutttttt [livejournal.com profile] random_nexus, don't look. It'll spoil the surprise.

I'm so freaking happy with how this turned out. It was my first time trying Faire Isle, and it turned out fucking fantastic.

SQUEEEEEEEEEE

I used to be a girl scout. I was obsessed with getting as many badges as I could. Even got my Bronze and Silver Awards... you know.. back when they meant something. I was just obsessed with collecting things (actually, still am >.>)

So I found these knitting badges, and just had to whore myself out for them. I'm now a dedicated member of the Knitting Scouts.

Shameless self promotion: )

I've frogged this stupid thing so many times in the last day and a half. 120 stitches just seems like so little. I even upped it to 160, but it still seems too small. Am I underestimating the stretchyness of the yarn?

Probably. One of these days.. I'll make the stupid eyelet cowl >
