Knitting Olympics, part duh


Now the pictures want to load. Fine. Whatever. Click on itty-bitty things for readable charts & such.

The short-sleeved pullover is my entry for the Knitting Olympics. You can't see much of it in the photo but I like the looks of the charted version. All fitted and 1940's and all.

Ranier Twin Set
Minerva Stitches and Styles, 1942

Minerva Featherdown yarn ran 256 yards to a one ounce ball and the pullover took 4 balls. The pattern will have to be adjusted a bit for me but it'll work. Charts are easier to resize anyhow.

I guess I'll have to buy some damned yarn too. Woodland Woolworks has some Zephyr Wool-Silk blend by the 2-oz ball and 1-lb cone. Mebbe order it tonight. It'll have to be preshrunk before I use it. The cone costs $59--if I'm going to do this I'm doing it up big time plus I won't have to guess how many balls to buy. Maybe in Plum or Mahogany.

Oh, and I'll have to lay in a supply of alcohol as well. You can't expect to knit competitively without being likkered-up.

Comment added later after I went to order my yarn, dammit: I noticed that they suggest you dry clean the Zephyr. Normally I don't take any dry cleaning crap from wool, but this stuff is expensive. I wouldn't want it to shrink into a $50 Barbie sweater the first time I hand washed it. Anyhow I'm using some mahogany-colored Henry's Attic alpaca that I 've had lying around here instead that I've only used in some weaving. Let's see how unhappy I am once I do a couple gauge swatches. And I ordered some fine-gauge silk thread for my psychotic vintage filet lingerie crocheting.

We can often see the propaganda of Tiffany co
and accessories in various kinds of fashion magazines and websites. More and more youngsters have become the frenetic pursuers of silver rings
. The wear of Tiffany necklaces
and Tiffany pendants
is very popular among young girls as it gives them an elegant touch.
