OK...I sketched and started swatching this weekend. I'm using some Korean tiles/palace things for inspiration. I'm thinking of a hanbok-inspired cardigan done in the bright red yarn. Thanks for the ideas, folks.

I washed the swatch and got it to shrink (amazing! No real drier!) by more than 15%. Boy, oh boy did the yarn bleed! And it got all kinds of little bubbles all over it. It was actually a bit pretty.

I had to redo the tiles chart to make up for the shrinking and I'm knitting it now. I can't believe that with only 167 sts, the whole garment is on the needles!!

I've posted a picture of the progress so far at Amanda Knits if anyone wants to see it. I'm very pleased (thus far).

I really like your ideas and am looking forward to seeing your finished projects.

Oh, and I want one of those Picasso bags.

I know this isn't clothing, but Last-Minute Knitted Gifts (book by Joelle Hoverson) has some beautiful patterns for knitted stuffed toys--a bunny, bear, and elephant. I'm going to knit a couple as gifts for a couple of pregnant friends of mine.

Unfortunately, I don't have access to those books here.

I finished the girl's sweater and have charted the boy's sweater. I hope to start knitting it this weekend.

I agreed to meet my take kwon do studiomates at 6 am to go play soccer against our sister (brother?) studio! I was the photographer. It's not even 9 am and I feel like I've had a full day!

Oooh, off topic, but pictures of my studiomates are at the "Amanda Takes Off..." link.

I LOVE my studio! (As proven by the fact that I've used not one, not two, but three exclamation points in this post.)

OK, I decided to post a picture of the lotus motif in my webcards section, figuring the mother is waaaaay too busy to look there. So Kelley (and anyone else), you can find a photo of the motif here:

Socks or booties are always a big hit -- the mothers seem to use these. A friend told me later that the pairs of socks I made her baby were the only ones she had that really stayed on. Sarah.

See if your library has Double Knits, by Zoe Mellor. It has really cute combinations of patterns in twos, and would be perfect for knitting for twins.

There are not really libraries in South Korea. There are university libraries, but I doubt they'd have English-langauge knitting books. (: Thanks though!
