cabled clutch [Feb. 22nd, 2005|09:47 am]
Wicked Stitches
just a short intro - im a new knitter as of october. thus far, ive knitted 3 scarves, 1 pair of slippers, 1 hat, and im currently working on an aran sampler afghan.

ive been admiring missmcnally's knitted goods, and im happy that i found your new community. yay :) now, i havent been able to stop thinking about the cabled clutch you posted awhile ago at college knit, and i was hoping that you could either give me the pattern or the url of where you got the pattern. it is an adorable bag!

anyway, i look forward to seeing how this community develops. :)

Hi :) [Feb. 1st, 2005|07:56 am]

Hi! My name is Katie and I live in Texas. I found this community by looking at missmcnally's (that actually might be spelled wrong, but I think you get the jist of it) profile. I love the things that she posts at the community collegeknit and I wanted to see if she was a member of any other knitting communities (yes, I am a stalker).

I've been knitting since November, so not very long. I've finished two scarfs and now I'm working on an afghan. I have limited skills, so I'm only doing easy things and trying to gather up the courage to move to harder projects. I have Stitch n Bitch Nation and love a lot of the things in there, but I get intimadated because I only have like 3 different sizes of needles and I'm on a tight budget.

I have to leave in a few minutes (I could go on & on, lol), but I just wanted to post a picture or two of the last scarf that I did. It's huge, even though I'm never really going to get to use it because I live in Texas. I used size 8 straight needles and just did a knit stitch for the whole thing. It's very simple, but it's my first real project (second scarf, but I did a bad job of picking out yarn on the first one and I don't like it at all) and I really do like it.

and a close up:

Just thought I'd get things rolling by showing y'all what I'm working on right now. It looks like crapola at the moment because I'm being really messy about my yarn and working with double pointed needles (it's not as difficult as it looks, trust me). The pattern I'm using was designed for children but I altered it to fit adult hands, because in my opinion, you're never too old to wear obnoxiously colored mittens!

I'll be sure to post pictures of the finished project! Wish me luck!

Hey gals (& our rare but appreciated knitting guys!)

I'm missmcnally, moderator of this community. I have a real life knitting group called Wicked Stitches that's just getting started, and I thought, what better way to expand our knitting sphere than putting it on livejournal?

So feel free to post your patterns / designs / pictures because we'd love to see them. I'll be posting soon enough! An suggestions for the background are welcome too :-)

Happy knitting
