SWAP 2019 / Re: Crazyquilter's Dream SWAP ...
Last post by crazyquilter - March 04, 2019, 07:21:56 pm
I have actual sewing to report.  I did sew in Feb. just not for SWAP and not for me.  I made Barbie clothes for my grandsweeties.

I got the teal dress out yesterday and mostly finished cutting it out.  I am making it from two skirts.  I had gotten to the part where I realized my fabric from the one skirt was too narrow to cut the dress and it was going to have to be pieced when I put it away, so that was the first thing I did yesterday.  Today I did the bias trim on the armscyes.  I'm hoping to actually finish it tomorrow.

I also got back to work on my muslin for the refashioned Elliot jacket.  I am making it from the same jersey waterfall cardigan as the one I'm planning for SWAP, just in a different color.  I want to get this one finished and wear it some to see if I need to make changes on the black one. This one will have Alabama Chanin style embroidered edges.  I am planning a crocheted edge treatment for the black one.  I've done this crochet treatment on another refashioned t-shirt to cardigan/jacket and liked how it turned out.

Here is a photo of the other crochet edge treatment.  I used several colors and weights of yarn and thread for that one.  I haven't decided yet for the black one if I will do it all in black, or use the colors from my SWAP.



You can see the whole cardigan/jacket and read my notes on it at my Ravelry project page.

My understanding is that this is where to ask questions about things that relate to interpreting the SWAP rules, and that the general discussion thread was for all other talk about our efforts...

(thanks for the compliment on my knitting)

SWAP 2019 / Re: SWAP 2019 Official Rules
Last post by indigotiger - March 04, 2019, 02:18:16 pm
I have been going round and round in my head about which category to put the handknit cardigan I am currently working on, whether is counts as a neutral, or as a print. The body and sleeves of the pattern are a solid color, but the yoke and cuffs are done in colorwork patterning. On one hand, I thought that because it was not just a single overall solid color, that would make it a "print", then someone commenting on my blog made me consider that it was mostly all one color, so maybe not? Asking with the hope of more clarification, as which category it is in will determine which additional garments will be needed to complete my SWAP.
photo shows the knitting I have done so far, laid out over a different cardigan that fits me, I gradually fill in the amount of knitting needed to have a new cardigan, which will be indigo blue with a gradient design yoke and cuffs in lighter blues.
 
here is an example of someone else's finished sweater (pullover rather than cardigan in this case) in the same knitting pattern, to help show the finished effect:

QuoteBut because I misspoke I will add an extra day to every open subscription. 


I've finished doing this, so every current account has an extra day added.

Next, after I make the backups this evening I'll change over to the format the subscription module wants to use, and then I believe a year will run for a full year like this:

January 1, 2020 to December 31, 2020 or June 1, 2020 to May 31, 2021

If it turns out to be some other way, I'll let everyone know.

/edited 'cause I clearly need more coffee.

Melinda, how smart of you to save the hand sewing for after your surgery! Hope you are recovering.

Morzel and DF, your pants fit nicely! I'm in awe.

I think I'm back sewing for a bit, just couldn't get going there for a bit. I had planned to mash up the Eleonore and Elle pants, as I like features of both. Then I took the patterns out and laid them side by side. Uh, no way! they are so different!!  here they are:

Look at those crotch curves! I am shocked they both fit me!

French Viscose acrylic knit: (Berman) 2.3 yards of 58" wide. Beautiful cream, light camel, black. The other side is an oatmeal knit-look, also useful. I bought it because it really uplifted black..but even better, it uplifted Browns, greys and camel. Best offer. Please pm me (and make me feel better about unloading).


Cotton sateen:"Palmetto" (from Tilton) 2 pcs cotton sateen. 1.5 yards of 54" width, and another piece 1 yard, 54" width. It is lovely and unusual: black and periwinkle with a flash of orange. I bought it for a jacket but never got to it... I am getting real about what I can do. PM me if interested, will consider all offers. Non smoking, non-pet home.

More coming I'll keep posting

Melinda - Really liking your Alabama Chanin style stitchery, both how well you are doing it, and the way the floral stencil design you chose echoes the botanical images in your other two prints, which I am sure will add to a cohesive "feel" to your SWAP collection. I hope that the hand stitching will bring you some peaceful feelings as you recover and heal

I've received it.


Quote from: DragonLady on March 03, 2019, 08:53:03 amYes; if you subscribe today, you're subscription will run 'til March 3, 2020.

I misspoke here.  It does run from March 3, 2019 to March 2, 2020.  But because I misspoke I will add an extra day to every open subscription. 

While I was checking that, I realized the new board actually wants the input in another format, so after I've updated everyone (which will take a couple of days) I'll change the format, and let everyone know how it works when I've done that.
