Jacket, Dress, And Shawl

Three projects at the same time? And I still want to start new ones... hehe... ;) Although I always seem to have multiple projects going on at the same time, I do almost finish them all at the end. The keyword being "almost", there's a frustrating UFO in the pile for more than a year now. Not that I don't want to finish it, I just don't know how (and if) to go forward. That will be another post. For now, let me show you what I am working on:

同時進行三個projects? 而且還在想新的東西... 我是太閒了嗎? 心情可能有點閒, 手上可是沒停過唷! 我知道這樣三心二意, 反而需要更多時間來完成作品, 可是后, 現在想織的都是一些大作品咧, 每一件至少都要三個星期來完成, 不找些其他的東西來調劑一下, 會織不下去呢. 雖然三心二意, 可是我幾乎沒有半成品哦! 重點在"幾乎"... 有一件背心織了一年多了, 無法完成, 不是我不想完成它, 實在是不知如何繼續, 這個就以後再說吧. 先來現一下我目前的進度:

Phildar Swing Jacket is looking good. Both front pieces, the back, and one sleeve are done. The fronts and back have been blocked and measure perfectly. The sleeve has not been blocked. I will do a second batch of blocking once the second sleeve and the collar are done. Gotta start looking for yarn to do the pockets, and shopping for buttons!

拆了三次後, 第四次總算進行順利. Phildar外套這次看起來還不錯哩. 已經織好前片, 後片, 和一隻袖子. 前後片已經定型過, 尺寸剛好. 袖子尚未定型. 等第二隻袖子和領子織好, 再一起定型. 現在要開始找織口袋用的線和釦子!


I couldn't resist, the second day after I received my Vogue Knitting Spring/Summer 2007 issue in the mail, I went out to buy yarn for the cover dress. It is too adorable! After about 4 days, the top back is done. I bought enough yarn and do intend to make the entire dress, but I know myself, this is probably one of the largest projects I have ever taken on (the largest may be the baby blanket...) I decided to start with the top, then the second tier of the garment and the sleeves. And if I haven't got tired of it, then I will make the bottom tier of the skirt. If I run out of patience, then at least I can wear it as a top. I imagine this dress will take some time to make. No hurry, this will just be a "little" something to do on the side while I tackle the other projects. :D

收到Vogue Knitting 2007 春夏版太興奮了, 第二天就跑去買線來織封面那件洋裝. 實在是太口愛了! 織了約四天吧, 現在上身後片已經完成. 我是真的打算織整件洋裝喔! 線量買的也夠. 可是我自己沒信心, 這麼大的project, 怕沒有耐心去完成. 這在我織過的東西裡, 算很大件了 (最大的大概是這件baby睡毯...) 決定先從上身開始織, 然後腰身小腹那一節裙子, 再來織袖子. 如果還沒累垮或厭倦, 再來織最下面那節裙襬. 如果不想再織下去, 那就把它當上衣穿. 嘿嘿... 反正不急, 天氣還沒暖到適合穿洋裝, 這件慢慢來, 當調劑品就好... :D


And of course, TKA's project of the month - Kiri Shawl. I started a few days ago, wanted to make sure the yarn and the needle gauge work well for this lace pattern. This lace yarn is one of my acquisitions from Stitches West 2007. I am liking how it has turned out so far. Hopefully it will look as good after blocking.

當然還有TKA這個月的project - 琦麗蕾絲披肩. 幾天前試織了一下, 想確定線和針號還可以. 線是這次在Stitches West 2007買的蕾絲細線. 覺得效果還不錯哩, 就一天織一點, 現在織了這麼多. 希望定型後效果更好.


The yarn on the left is the one I am using for Kiri. I am contemplating using the one on the right for Print O'The Wave Stole. Maybe add on a 4th project? Nuh, it will be after the Kiri is done...

左邊那綑線是我現在織琦麗披肩用的. 我在考慮用右邊那綑來織Print O'The Wave Stole. 可能等琦麗完成後再來進行...

哇!同時進行三個projects,超人耶!三個看起來都很漂亮.那件Lacy Dress的領口蠻大的呢.有沒有想過怎麼改高一點或小一點?
妳的Kiri也美呢!我一直不太確定用段染線適不適合,怕太花了看不出花樣.現在看看妳的,不錯喔,有機會也來試一下吧!

Margaret said...

Wow! What's with you and Annie? Multi projects at the same time. I used to do that a lot then I found that none of them really get finished. I have to hand it to you, though, they all look beautiful! I like the dress on VK, too.

Annie said...

這兩個線很美,織這兩件蕾絲披肩一定很適合,期待看到你的成品喔,這線這麼美,害我又想上網買線哩...

愛美麗 said...

我也喜歡好幾件一起進行
不然光打一件怕會容易懶起來

Mimi said...

I certainly need some of your knititng vibe.;) Knitting is going too slow in my corner!
All your works are looking pretty good. That lace dress looks to be a fun project.

To Tcknit:
別說我, 妳也常常好幾件同時進行, 不是嗎?!
那件dress的領口是蠻大的, 我有把它改高也有改窄小一點, 希望現在改的這樣會比較剛好. 我覺得Kiri應該是蠻適合用段染線, 因為它的花樣很簡單, 看起來不會太花.

To Margaret:
Thanks! Hehe... Multiple projects actually keep me going, otherwise I would get bored, especially these larger projects.

To Annie:
我也很喜歡這兩組線, 只是線細針細, 織起來進度好慢喔! 我也是每次看到妳們用的線美, 就很想買耶, 可惜美國不容易買到亞洲的線...

To 愛美麗:
對呀對呀... 要不然我通常打到一半就覺得厭了呢!

To Mimi:
Your work is always so delicate, it's got to take more time. I was afraid that I might get bored with the lace dress (it being so large in surface area)... but so far it's been fun! The lace is keeping it interesting.

PlumStitches said...

Your Phildar Swing Jacket looks great! Love the colors of the lace yarn too.

p.s. thanks for the blocking advice, good to know I'm on the right track.

SweetPeaknits said...

You've got some great wip's and I agree that the Vogue front cover dress is gorgeous, as are a few patterns in this seasons Mag... I must invest.

wakana said...

Your Phildar's Jacket looks very nice! I love the color. I was pondering if I should go for brown sheep's superwash or elann's, and I ended up working on with elann's yarn.
I love your VK's dress, too. what kind of yarn are you using? is it cotton? Mine is bamboo, and so far, I like it a lot!

I'm trying the lace dress and I'm having a difficult time figuring out how to pick up the sts evenly across top edge of insert 2. It says to skip the 4th space, then every 5th space 5 times, then every 6th space 10 times. What in the world does this mean? I just can't figure it out.
I knit the lace insert ok. It worked out well. But I can't figure this one out and how to end up with 74 sts!
Please help me! I'm desperate to make this dress!
Thanks!
