01.09.06: Why, it's a seaming party! (Finally. Sheesh.)

It may seem like I'm being slowpokey with finishing Captain Destructo's Linen Jacket, but seaming has not been without incident. After I seamed one sleeve to an armhole, I decided that the sleeves needed a longer sleeve cap. So I...

31.08.06: Okay, I admit it.

I've been working on something else this week! Secret knitting, like a sneaky rabbit. Remember, back in April, when I mentioned that I had started a new Mystery Knit? Some of my particularly observant readers [coughMaudinFinlandcough] probably thought that I...

29.08.06: Just can't get enough*.

Apparently, I didn't get my fill of lace cardis with my Crinkle. (Any t-shirts out there that read, "Lace Cardi 'Ho"? If not, print one up in my size 'cause that's me.) Late Sunday night I cast on for the...

29.08.06: CeCe Cardi!

New project alert!

25.08.06: See that?

We're finished! Now block us, ALREADY. It's a pile o' knit pieces! Of Captain Destructo's Linen Jacket, that is. They're all knit up and ready for seaming, so to the blocking board they go. After that: Seaming, zipper, neckband...

23.08.06: We interrupt the knitting to bring you a Cambric Tea Blouse in muslin.

Do you try on clothes before you buy them? I usually do. My way of trying on my version of Cambric Tea Blouse is by making one in muslin first. (So this is not the final blouse; it's just a...

21.08.06: Double the fun:

With a finished Crinkle and finished bustier! (And my Crinkle knitting partner Claudia just finished hers, too. So we've really doubled the fun.) This is the stand-still-like-a-mannequin shot. [Hey! You want some Crinkle SHOW-OFF poses? Click here then.] Crinkle details:...

17.08.06: Two things to look at today:*

An "Almost Evening" shot of Lyon from my window: Oh, how romantic! And some knit picot cast-off on a Crinkle: Oh, how NOT so romantic! (The picking up stitches bit, that is.) I'm now on the last bit of picot...

16.08.06: Sleeve 1, and Sleeve 2.

Wanna know what I've been knitting in the evening?

14.08.06: Almost there...

...because Crinkle is seamed: Please pardon my gym clothes. [P.S. Of course, there's a seaming slideshow.] She may be seamed, but she's definitely not finished. I need to pick up stitches around all the edges and work a picot cast-off....

11.08.06: Little Crinkle pieces all in a pile.

Crinkle is blocked and ready for a seaming party this weekend, bay-beeeeeeeeee!

09.08.06: Hey! Remember my son's linen jacket?

Yes, this Linen Jacket. Well, I finally got off my procrastinating bee-hind and cast on for the first sleeve last night. Teeny little intarsia stripes. I love it! [Click HERE for the WRONG SIDE* view.] I tell you: When you...

07.08.06: If you stash, it will come.

The knitting mojo, that is. I cast on for the back piece of Crinkle on Friday evening and knit through while watching Koh-Lanta. On Saturday evening I knit some more while watching a couple of DVDs. At approximately 10:25 p.m....

03.08.06: Random Friday:

02.08.06: Yesterday I finished my bustier top!

Today I did the finishing touches on it, like hemming. [Look, Ma! No procrastination!] All I have to do is press. Rock. Here's a Bustier in Progress Table Shot: I deserve a gold star for not procrastinating on the hemming....

31.07.06: Miscellany Monday.

Okay, I went to a couple of shops in order to check out [READ: CHECK OUT...NOT buy] possible ribbons for my Crinkle cardi and, er...I kinda walked out of there with shiny little bags full of ribbons. They're from my...

28.07.06: The weather gods have taken pity on me...

...and decided to send over some lower temps last night, and I'm enjoying the coolness brought by a light summer rain as I type this. It feels so mah-velous! Thank yoooooooooooouuuuu, cool breeze. P.S. If you press your face against...

26.07.06: Welcome to another segment of the Skinny Rabbit Sewing Hour.

It's Let's Make a Knock-off Time!

24.07.06: Vacation, all I ever wanted...

Hey! Remember that Go-Go's Vacation video where they're wearing tutus and "dancing" on water-skis? People, I am so enjoying my time off that I would totally wear a tutu and tiara while water-skiing. Point me to the nearest lake, Cap'n...

20.07.06: Random Rabbit at Work Shot:

Say hello to "Speedy". It's the machine I used at work, and he's my pally. Sniff. I'll miss him. (I was making a bustier dress in the photo.) Yesterday was the last day of my internship at the design...

17.07.06: I'm all over the place today.

Let's start with sewing: Before I earn myself the nickname of Procrastirabbit (procrastinating + rabbit) I figured I'd better get off my lazy bum and just hem my freaking PANTALOONS, ALREADY. Arrrr! Here they be: The hurry-up-and-take-the-picture-so-we-can-go-eat shot. [Click here...

13.07.06: Fabric explosion?

Nah. Just a random Rabbit at Work Table Shot...

11.07.06: I snapped this shot while leaving work today:

A view of part of the city, taken in La Croix Rousse. (I was waiting for the, thankfully air-conditioned, bus.) Look at the pretty blue sky! What you can't see (or feel) is that it is 34 degrees celsius...

07.07.06: Lacy cardis are like white shirts.

You can never have too many of them, I say. Therefore, I bring you a lace cardi for my first summer knit: Click HERE to see the whole enchilada. It's a right front of Crinkle, the scrunchy lace cardi from...

07.07.06: Criiiiiiiiiiinkle!

Lacy scrunched up cardigan called "Crinkle" from the infamously styled Rowan 39.

03.07.06: We be saucy lasses. Arrrrrr!

We've discovered that silliness abounds when we wear Cat in the Hat Stripes.

30.06.06: Avast, me beauties*!

It's me hearty Cat in the Hat sweater being seamed. Arrrrrrrrrrrrr!

28.06.06: Yep. Still a-yokin'.

On my Cat in the Hat sweater, that is. I've still got it on the circ and need to go round and round a bit more because I ripped out a few rounds as I modified the pattern slightly in...

26.06.06: Look, Ma! I'm a-yokin'*!

*a-yokin': Joining back piece, front piece and sleeves on a circular needle for purposes of knitting the yoke. Then you swing your partner ‘round and ‘round, And turn your corner upside down. I admit that this is my least...

24.06.06: Welcome to Sleeve Island!

Where margaritas (frozen, no salt thankyouverymuch) are served in order to make knitting sleeves a "let's knit while dancing with lampshade on head" experience because knitting the second sleeve can seem to go so sloooooooowly. Sleeve One and Sleeve Two...
