I really like the hat and the clogs. I just finished a hat and scarf for my secret prayer partner. We are revealing them tonight so nothing like working under pressure.

Nice job, Robin! I like those little neckercheif type scarves, they seem so much more practical than the big loooooong ones lol
Boy is this gonna look small ;), but I finished a Christmas project today.
I'm making these for both of the new arrivals (one just born, one expected before xmas), I'm sticking them in a basket with travel size baby stuff... one more and I'll have almost 2 presents done :rollseyes:

PS-and I'm really proud of this - My non-knitting, I-never-notice-anything DH actually liked it - - - and could tell what it was supposed to be!! ;) )

Finished the Liesel Lace Scarf (http://yummyyarn.indus3ous.com/archives/cat_scarf_liesel_lace.html)! I used Peruvian Collection Baby Silk from www.elann.com (two strands held together). I don't think the picture shows off the leaf pattern well, but it is pretty. I'm quite happy with the end result!

You know, I never thought of it that way, I bet my DH's aunt would love a "Footprints" scarf....not that I just spent the better part of two months working on her cabled scarf, or anything :rollseyes: LOL
I meant to post the link to the pattern before, here it is
Baby Feet Washcloth (http://www.knittingknonsense.com/babyfeet.html)

Well for the record, I did resize it. Now I just have to figure out how to get it on FO's.

I feel like Wylie Coyote chasing that darn Roadrunner. Just when I get really close . . .

I get to post a photo at last - woohoo! Here is a pic of a baby hat (my first non-square knitting project) that I made for my friend's baby (due first week of December - he turned up 4th November and weighed in at just on 7lbs :shock: ) It has been dubbed the butternut squash hat, as a short-sighted friend of mine thought that's what it was when she viewed the photo without her specs on. :D

http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y144/peev/crafts/7b5ab9fc.jpg

It was soooo easy to knit, and the wool (Debbie Bliss Baby...something :oops: ) was lovely and soft to knit with. The colour is more buttermilk-y in real life.

That hat is adorable, Peev!

I love the i-cord at the top!

The hat is adorable, It's gonna look so cute on a little baby - and I don't think it looks at all like a butternut squash!

I recently finished a scarf from the pattern amy posted using the drop stitch, it shows in the pic as on the needles. Its about 6' in length, I used a light weight novelty yarn, so it wraps around the neck and hangs on both sides, like the latest ones in the magazines, it was a fun pattern and took about the length of a good movie to complete.

Still no picture of Jim actually in the sweater...we've been having unusually warm weather the last few days so he hasn't been as cold at night. He promised me though he'd at least put it on for a minute tonight so I can take a picture. In the meantime, a hat, scarf and jacket. Pictures HERE (http://www.divaknitting.com/blog/?p=200).

Jeremy
11-15-2005, 11:22 AM
Thanks for the complements :D The yarn is Roxanne's Mohair which was 50% mohair and 50% lamb's wool. It comes from a place called Hopyard Spinnery here in CT and is sold locally. This color is called Tropical Punch.

Oh I forgot to comment Jeremy... I LOVE the felted bag. The colors are awesome. Who is the lucky recipient?

Jeremy we are getting married Christmas eve and heading to Mystic for Christmas with family--staying at a wonderful B & B ... any local yarn stores you can recommend? :D
ps.. love the bag!

Jeremy
11-15-2005, 11:42 AM
Thanks Kemp.The lucky recipient is my wife (she also got a Booga Bag made from the same type of wool but in a color called Fall Colors)

Stonington, thanks for the complement.There is a neat yarn store right there in Mystic. Its called Mystic River Yarns. The number is 860-536-4305 and its not far from downtown Mystic. It may pay to call ahead for directions because its hidden away in a corner thats not visible from the street. Its a neat place though and sometimes has people like Lily Chinn there demonstrating. Congratulations on your wedding! I live in Norwich, about half an hour from where you'll be staying.

Stonington
11-15-2005, 11:50 AM

I made a pair of ladies socks for my sister's birthday, and thought I had enough to also make a little pair of ankle socks for my 2yr old son. It was close, I thought I was going to run out, but I didn't! :happydance: So here is the finished pair of adult socks, next to the first sock of a pair for a 2yr old!

That Lucy Bag is absolutely GORGEOUS! I am trying to finish mine but am having a little problem with the kitchener stitch...Tell me, is that a large (ball or tall version) or small bag??

KellyK

WUV the widdle socky-doo!!

Jeremy
11-15-2005, 09:21 PM
Andrea- its the tall version using worsted size wool. Amy has a great video on the kitchener stitch. Thats how I figured it out. "Knit slip purl, purl slip knit"

The last time I posted was on Nov 7th. So, in a week, this forum has 15 pages more, which means that 2 pages (and something) are typed in just a day.

I CANT KEEP TRACK OF THIS!!!!

PS: Love the Napoeleon Dynamite pillow, the felted bags, the markers, all the socks (impressive), the KK baby set, the bow scarf. I cant remember all. I will chek this forum everyday! that is the only solution!!!

I know I'm fairly new, but I can't believe I finally finished this blanket, so I needed to share. :D I also attached a pic of a wool soaker I made with my first attempt at intarsia. :) Everyone here is so talented!

Emeraldcutie
11-16-2005, 12:13 AM
Oh, and Emeraldcutie, that scarf is lovely! It knits up that quickly? Nice!

:cheering:

It knits up amazingly fast, I did mine on a 10mm needle and used bernat frenzy yarn.
The stitches you drop off are about 2.5" in length. I used 2 balls and knitted till I used them all.

It is very cozy.

Yeah, Angelia, that's why I've put it off for all this time! I thought, oh man, it's going to mean a lot more threads to keep up with, to have them in their own forum!

But replying will be MUCH MUCH easier.
