Modeling my FOs

Finally I found the tripod in the house. The adjusting of the tripod height and angle, the zooming and etc took quite a while. I still need to adjust the lightings of the room. Seems like there's not enough natural light coming into my room.

First photo is me in Mariah. The zipper looks kind of weird in the photo. For my next sweater, I'm going to get more shaping and plenty of cables. More stories on Mariah is here

Pattern: Mariah from
Yarn: Caressa from Patons (500g)
Needle: 4mm (US 6)
Size: Small
Time to finish: 1 month

The very well known Tivoli. This is my first seamless project. Learnt stuffs like bind-offs/casting on mid-row. This pattern calls for the exact amount of yarns, I was left with less than a metre of yarn. I think i left out one increase as i have a smaller hip. This is great for mindless knitting in front of the TV or on road trips. Did i mention a portion of this was knitted during my trip to KL. And also there this new version called Picovoli

Pattern: Tivoli from Grumperina
Yarn: 4 balls of Debbie Bliss Cathay in black
Needle: 4mm (US 6)
Size: Small
Time to finish: <2 weeks

Needless to say which lace pattern this is. I actually knitted this in the round after the armholes and only had 3 inches of ribbing, cuz the ribbing was boring me to dreamland. and Mom is showing interest in this piece as well. I might have to knit her in a bigger zize, which means more yarn and more $$$ spent.

Pattern: Orangina from Glampyre
Yarn: less than 4 balls of Jaeger Siena in Phlox
Needle: 3.25mm (US 3) and 2.75mm (US 2) for ribbing
Size: X-Small
Time to finish: <2 weeks

Edited to reply to comments:
Tari: due to the difference in gauge, it was my first sweater, so gauge was not my first priority.

rosalynn: i think its Patons from Australia

To All: thanks for the kind comments. You girls really spur me on for more knitting.

I love your mariah. I think it looks even better than the original. Did you make any modifications? It seems a bit longer than I imagined it would be.

Jennifa said...

I love all of your projects, but I also think that Mariah is a complete winner. I love the combo of the color and the cables.

gorgeous job on the mariah. i was looking at that pattern, but opted to do the Rogue sweater instead. very jealous of the Zephyr you have!

Lauren said...

Where to start? They all look amazing! I am a big fan of the Mariah... that is just amazingly beautiful. You did a great job on all of them!

rosalynn said...

nice FOs! esp the mariah, i'm jealous since i haven't been able to cast on for it yet! what material was the yarn you used for it? i can't find that paton's yarn anywhere on the web... but it looks great!

Ruth said...

Love all of them!! And just like everyone else, especially Mariah!! Love it!! Can never bring myself to start it, looks kinda intimidating to me, I mean the size with the gauge, hehe... ;)

Great job on all the finished stuff. I'd love to know what the Kiri looks like all blocked out. I just finished mine too - 1 skein of Shimmer~
