That is a B-E-A-U-tiful bag Vic!! I'd like to make an extra grande version of that to hold all of my son's teddy bears!

Nice pics.

(Does that sound like a pick up line?)

thanks beldy! :heart: this bag was fun to make and the biggest secret is it looks expensive but was from :shock: oh dear
Walmart.... a big cone of cotton for like $2.60 or $2.80. I still have bunches left. It'd be great for teddie bears!

Works for me :thumbsup:

Um, anyway...I love the bootie! And I love the white summer bag (not to mention the view!).

Here's my bag out of Crystal Palace Deco-ribbon (more pics in this thread (http://www.knittinghelp.com/knitting/forum/viewtopic.php?t=1234&highlight=)). Ignore the funky 60's chair.

rebecca,

I absolutely adore the scarf! :inlove: I hope you share/publish the pattern for those of us who are artistically challenged.

I got the pattern from the poncho from this site. It's the Easy Baby Poncho. Thanks to those who told me how long to make the rectangles for the toddler size!

And please excuse my daughter's messy hair. My husband was so impressed by the finished project he went and got the camera before I could fix it. And I just noticed her Blue's Clues tatoo makes her look a little biker babe-ish! :)

@Julie: at first I only saw the first pic and tried to figure out what the hell it was! Oh, a bootie!
It looks really cute, but how do you get from the first to the second pic? I sat here trying to "get" the construction, but I don't know how...

@Vic: Wonderful! It looks gorgeous in white! Did you use a pattern? And if so which? I want to knit a shopping bag for my mum for mothers day, but your bag looks better than the one I intended to do.

@Carol: Your bag is lovely too! I like that it's made out of ribbon yarn.

@benniesma: How cute! And I mean both the Poncho and your daughter!

Julie

Javede....the oval on the right side is the sole of the shoe. First you join the heel seam (bottom left...sort of....the two short edges) then you stitch it all to the sole. Does that make any sense??

This was me when I saw the pattern ---> :?? but it was really so simple!

VictoiseC
04-20-2005, 10:53 AM
Javede... I started with this pattern:

http://www.geocities.com/knitter01/tote.html

But then I changed it because I wanted it to be very open and also to go quickly so I did those elongated stitches (wrap yarn around twice) every other row. Then I did the top border in a combo of garter/stockinette. Just sort of made it up as I went.

YAY!! I am finished one bootie!! I swear, it's not much bigger than a pin, and it fits on my pointer finger just right (anyone for finger warmers?). Anyway, it's finished, and now on to the other bootie and then some more hats and booties and maybe some blankets (if I can find the right pattern).

Katy

PS
All the newest projects look fabulous!! Write more when I have the time, sorry!

just finished my bracelet based on this Knitty pattern: Mary Ella (http://knitty.com/ISSUEwinter04/PATTmaryella.html).

It was actually very easy to make once you got used to the small needles.
I made it on size #000 needles (1.5mm) rather than the #0000 (1.25mm) that they suggested.

And I've already got requests from friends and my sister for their own bracelets.

I think I'd go blind working that small. :shock: Beautiful bracelet though.

knitfun
04-22-2005, 08:41 PM
How long did it take you? I would LOVE to knit that too!

I am a little intimidated by the beads although seems simple enough when you sit an reason with it!

Gee, can you make one for me too? JK, I would love to make one for my neices, they would totally dig it!

Just need to know how long you think it'll take......

GREAT JOB! It's gorgeous!

I started this project before Thanksgiving and just finished. There is a pattern on the sweater, but I could take a picture that would show the pattern.

Sara
04-23-2005, 12:02 PM
Here it is! I am finished! And I have five chilly days on which to wear it before I will have to put it away until next fall! Although DD was wearing a stocking cap to bed last August, it was so cold here. I'll post a couple more pics on my blog. The flip flop is for scale. I crocheted the fun fur on the straps. The idea came from the Lionbrand website, but their pattern is completely wrong.

Very nice Kelly! I've had Aibhlinn on my list of to-dos for while now, but haven't found the right yarn. What did you use? Were the bobbles hard?

Carol

KellyK
04-24-2005, 03:55 AM
Thanks, Carol!

I used Jaeger Extra Fine DK Merino....so mom could wear it in winter. It is SOOOOOOOOO soft. I was hoping Id have a whole ball left, just so I could SQUEEZE it every once in a while!

It took me about 3-4 bobbles before I got used to them. Not bad!

rebecca
04-24-2005, 04:00 PM
Kelly...is this a surprise for your mom, or is she already waiting for it?!
It's absolutely BEAUTIFUL!!! :cheering: :cheering: :cheering:
You are the knitting :notworthy: QUEEN :notworthy: today, for sure!!!

KellyK

Thanks, Rebecca....

It was a surprise when I gave it to her half-done ON her birthday...she's just waiting for the finished product! :oops:

rebecca
04-24-2005, 04:20 PM
:blush: Okay, now I don't feel so bad bc I'm gonna have to do that with the wedding afghan that I haven't been working on...lol!! I'm afraid I've been unable to knit this past week (pain thing)...so, my nephew will understand...thank God it's a family member...it's not just everybody that u can say....here, happy bday or congrats on the wedding...thought you'd like this unfinished gift!!
But...your mom LOVE, LOVE, LOVED it, didn't she...told u it was well worth the wait, I'm sure, bc it is simply divine!!

SO Kelly is the Aibhlinn like a tube and you put yer head through it or is it a wrap? It's beautiful. It just looks so soft. You wanna make me one? :drooling: jus tkidding

KellyK
04-25-2005, 11:30 PM
It IS like a tube....you can just wear it scrunchy around your neck like a scarf, OR you can also pull the back up over your head if its windy or cold!

Im not sure Ill be makin another one of these anytime soon. ;)

04-26-2005, 12:52 PM
Here's my latest. I made this for my daughters 14th birthday at the end of May. I think she will be getting it early. I am excited it worked out fairly well. If I did it again I would start the design right away. I like to make my hats with less pucker.

feministmama
04-26-2005, 01:52 PM
is that a grenade! That is the coolest thing I ever saw.....today

Yvonne
04-26-2005, 03:20 PM
Remember the rummage sale where I got the motherlode of yarn? Here are some things I made with it. The blue scarf is Reynolds Fleur de Lis mohair (so soft!). The orange scarf is for my daughter to wear for band events as the colors are perfect for that, believe it or not. It's a mystery yarn as there was no label. It's some kind of cord with little confetti-type things hanging off it.
The poncho is not from that yarn, but from some boucle I bought on ebay. It actually isn't brown, but infiltrated with shiny bits of turquoise, peach, etc. I'll try to post a close up of the stitches, though the photo is a bit fuzzy.

Yvonne
04-26-2005, 03:22 PM
Hmm, pics didn't attach. Let me try again. When I tried it again, it tells me it's too big. Back to the drawing board...

Yvonne

I knitted it with Caron Simply Soft Brites in Watermelon and Limelight--the colors in the pictures are pretty accurate.

Amy- I didn't really make up the illusion pattern. I "stole" the star chart from part of the DIY illusion scarf episode charts and rewrote it in pattern format.

Rebecca- It actually wasn't hard to do at all. That's what I :heart: about it! It looks difficult, but it really isn't. It's all just knit and purl and switching colors every two rows.

~ Michelle

rebecca
04-28-2005, 08:07 AM
difficult or not...i love it...looks very cool!! I saw my 1st illusion scarf in the 1st stitch n bitch book...then saw the girl do it on knitty gritty...she said it was easy, too....but :thumbsup: it's good to talk to a 'real' person to find out that the easy of books & tv is the same as the 'easy' of us non tv-ers!!
have a :sunny: day

Here's a picture of (a headless) me wearing my finished tank from the newest knit.1 magazine. I'm pretty happy with it! It was supposed to have buttons but I didn't think it would look too good buttoned up so I just went with the tie.

brookenic
04-28-2005, 09:52 PM

Mer

That's really great! Nice color. :D Was that hard to make?

Thanks! Not really hard, the body part is all stockinette, and the ruffles are actually crochet. So I had to learn to crochet, but it wasn't bad once I got the hang of it. :thumbsup:

KellyK
04-28-2005, 10:09 PM
MER...that is SOOOOOOOO cute! I LOVE the lettuce edge! And, good call on the tie!

Mer, that top is TOO cute! Good job! :thumbsup:

Kel, :heart: the beanie! Was it difficult to knit?

Me, I've been working on the same friggin baby sweater for almost two weeks now. *sigh* It's not even all that difficult (got the pattern from Debbie Bliss' "Baby Knits for Beginners") I just kinda ran out of steam on it. It's SO boring. :crying: However, I refuse to start on anything else until I get the silly thing finished. At the rate I'm going, my daughter will be starting high school before it's done....

~Sharon, stuck on the boring arse sweater

Kelly, Mer and Amy--I love all your stuff!
The cell phone holder brings to mind that earlier this week my daughter's 5th-grade teacher gave her some leftover wool she had, thinking my daughter could use it for some little thing. As it turned out, the teacher's birthday was the very next day. We decided to use one of the wools to make her a cell phone case. It was really pretty variegated, shades of red, purple, green and blue. So my daughter crocheted the thing and we tried felting it (we never felted before). It came out so great! We made it with a flap and buttonhole, then sewed on a fancy royal blue fabric button. She loved it and couldn't believe my daughter made it herself. I only helped with the button, designing, the seaming and felting. :oops:
Forgot to take a picture, darn it.

KellyK
04-29-2005, 11:06 AM
Thanks for all the kudos, everybody! :mrgreen:

Sharon, I LOVE double-knitting. I made my first one for DH from a pattern that I "tweaked" to make it go a bit faster. This hat is SO warm. And, no, its not HARD, it just gets a bit "futzy" for the decreases.

gimmesanity
05-01-2005, 03:05 PM
Here are my recent FO's. The first two are hats (duh.) The black one is a k2p2 skully for DH from SNB. It looked so small when it was being blocked, but, surprisingly, it fits over my hubby's huge melon. :shock:

The green hat is my first non-scarf FO. :cheering: The pattern is from Debbie Bliss' "Baby Knits for Beginners." I've attached a pic of dd wearing the hat the day she was born. :D

The needle holder is from SNB. I :heart: :heart: :heart: it! I bought the amount of fabric that was called for in the pattern, but only ended up using half of it. What's up with that?? So, I have enough to make another. I'll probably make another one that isn't as wide and with more pockets to hold my notions and stuff. I got the fabric on sale - I think the fabric plus the ribbon was like a whopping $6. Not too shabby. Oh, and I kinda cheated by getting striped fabric for the inside so I didn't have to worry about measuring out straight lines. Me not so good with the ruler... :??

And, the colors on that Booga are just the COOLEST.

Now, on to a sweater for Howie!

Cute hat Kelly! Is that Bernat Denim Style?? (I :heart: that yarn! So soft!)

hedgehog
05-01-2005, 07:24 PM
Those hats are lovely (all of 'em...) Never made a hat but i guess i'm gonna have to try sometime...

And the BAG...

WELL!! I'm not much of a bag kinda girl, but that booga bag is brilliant! I'm well impressed!

I'm almost tempted to make one but have no real reason to...

*note to self - find reason to make cool bag*

*next note to self - you have a MILLION other plans on the go or rolling around in your pea brain... bag can wait...*

I'm off to quiet the voices in my head....

That hat color is beautiful. Nice job! :thumbsup:

05-01-2005, 11:27 PM
Wow oh wow. Lovely stuff here. Kelly, that hat is such a soft lovely colour, really wonderful, my type of colour. I went to an artists/craft show outdoors today in New York. There was a woman selling hats with a lavender type of decoration, feathers, that I wanted: well, they were straw and feathers not knitted but when she said the price, I think everyone gasped: $265.00

(I love that beautiful felted bag, it's so pretty, the color!)

There were a couple of people selling knitted and felt things. Felted scarves: $85 and $65. A felted jacket: $185. Can you believe it? I dunno. I guess some folks can pay this price but not meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.

Just a little sidenote. On prices.

P.S. Kelly, that looks like a nice simple pattern for that hat. Do you have a link to it? Or.... is it in a book I have maybe? (I just made a hat that's once again a little too tight around the bottom)

KellyK
05-02-2005, 08:10 AM
Thanks SO much for all the compliments! :cheering:

Vic, here's the link (http://www.knittingonthenet.com/patterns/hatrollbrim.htm).

Julie, it IS Bernat Denimstyle...I LOVED working with it! I can picture a Spring/Fall sweater in the same yarn...Im just not a pink chick. They have lovely other colors, though!

VictoiseC
05-02-2005, 10:13 AM
Thanks Kelly! I posted elsewhere... your blog? that you didn't give me the pattern! so sorry forgive please
Love taht hat, looks better in your version than in the link.

05-02-2005, 10:21 AM
Victoise, at the risk of causing Kelly's head to explode :mrgreen: , I thought the same thing-that hers looks much nicer. The one in the link is nice, but if I were just perusing the net for free patterns and ran across Kelly's, I'd be much more inclined to want to make that pattern. I'm not particularly a pink kind of gal, either, but that is so pretty. I saw that yarn in Dallas the other day, and now wish I'd bought some.

This is my first completed knitting project EVER! I just bought knitting stuff in mid-March and was practicing here and there and am loving it!

I made the flower wash cloth from the Weekend Knitting book (library check out), it was so much fun to make, if not a little nerving when I moved from the circular needles to my way to short double-point needles!! Everything kept sliding off and I think I also managed to move everything on the needles upsidedown/backwards. ???

My hubby just put it on our kitchen table, heehee.

First of: congrats on your first finish!!! That is an awsome looking flower, I love it :) Is it possible to find that pattern online somewhere aswell? I'm not in the USA so I don't have access to the same books as you all have and that flower thingie, even if it is supposed to be a wash cloth, would make a perfect low-budget gift for a friend who is probably about to move to a new house. I'd be interested in knowing how you made it.

Here is my first sock from my recent trip. Socks are a perfect portable project! The only issues I had were dropping needles on the plane which is not a good thing! My problem was reduced a bit when I finally got use to the #2 needles (never used less than 8 so far.)

One of them got lost on the way home between the carpet and edge of the plane. Unfortunately, there was a BIG gap between the bottom of the plane and the carpet that sucked it right up! Can't wait to get the next one finished, but need to get my "tempting" sweater done first. Now I know why they sell DPNS in sets of 5!

I used yarnmommy's directions in the patterns forum to make this toddler poncho for my soon-to-be-two-year-old niece! The yarn is really soft and fluffy (a pain to work with though :mad: ) and a beautiful purple colour which you can't really tell from the picture. I crocheted a little chain and threaded it through the top of the neck hole to make a little tie, and added heart bobble thingies to the bottoms of the ties and voila!! It cost me $4 to make. :happydance:

This was my first sock ever and I found the pattern concise and easy to follow. And the fact that it wasn't loaded with ribbing made it a lot more manageable too.

It just requires that u buy another set of dpns in whatever size u r using and after you, as example, c/o 56 sts on sock one, then do the cuff; u then put sock 1 down & do the same to sock 2; then continue as such thru out the pattern and voila....u have 2 socks done at the same time...this same lady that i was reading about knitting socks in tandem, also said that the sock knitting went much faster...i thought she was nuts...but i promise it seems as tho it does go faster :XX: :XX: :XX: :XX: :XX:

Actually you know what? I think I DO have another pair of US 3 dpns. I just got a bunch of knitting stuff of my grandmother's that she doesn't use anymore and I think there were at least three needles of that size. So I don't have 2 complete sets, but can just use the 4th needle from my original set as the working needle for both socks.

I'll definitely do them in tandem next time!! Thanks for the tip!

05-10-2005, 07:29 AM
Those duck booties are great, I love them!
And yes, it just has to be Microspun by the look of the stitches.
Kelly, I think she thought it hellish because Microspun has many plies and is kind of splitty if you aren't super-careful.
On the other hand, it is smooth and soft and has a lovely drape when worked up. I learned to like it.

Julie
05-10-2005, 09:41 AM
Yvonne, Thanks!

Kelly -- It's veeeery veeeery splitty. I made a lot of mistakes on these, and had to frog rows here and there -- imagine frogging rows of SEED STITCH with very splitty yarn. UGH! Picking up stitches wasn't fun either. But I'm happy with the finished product! :D

Yvonne
05-10-2005, 10:45 AM
Julie, if you see dropped plies still hanging out and they drive you crazy, just use a tapestry needle or the end of your knitting needle to poke them to the inside where nobody will see them and they won't make you homicidal. :rollseyes:

The pattern is from Debbie Bliss' "Easy Knits for Beginners." It's just a simple drop-sleeve done in a merino/cashmere blend. I made it a little big so that DD will be able to wear it this fall. I hope she doesn't outgrow it before then :thinking:

Here are pics of the sweater pre-blocking (it's sitting on my counter drying right now.) And, since DD is sleeping, I've used Brutus as a model. :lol:

Two FOs

The elongated stitch scarf is for a church bazaar. My friend who coordinates the kntting gave me the yarn and the pattern. Unfortunately, I hated working with the nylon ribbon yarn (can't remember the name and too lazy to go find the label right now). I'm glad I did it, but I won't do it again. I'll buy some yarn I know I'm comfortable with. This event is in November and it seems like anything knitted sells well!

The hat is for my son, just in time for spring! I hope he can still wear it next season; I should have put more rows in the crown as I started the decreases. Oh well, when he grows out of it, I'll have an excuse to make another.

Thanks for looking at my things!!! I think I have to take a break from knitting!!!!!!!! :crying: I have a quilt I want to make....

and friends are returning from Bulgaria next year and I want to make sure it is DONE. At least I can say now, I only do scrapbooking, knitting and quilting. I don't do ANYTHING else. If I do tackle a project, it MUST be completed in a day or so....nothing hanging around!!!

Yesterday I finished the wrap I was making for a girl at work. I took a picture of it with a disposable camera, to finish the roll, so I wil have it developed this week. It turned out GORGEOUS!!!!!! I worked so quick on it the last week or so, I have never knitted so quickly.

She absolutely adored it!! I love the look on peoples faces when they get a homemade gift!

Off to make more scarves, so many people want them this year, that I need to work on them so they will be done in time.

I am a knitting fool!!!!! :XX: :XX: :XX:

I've posted a close up of my stitches on my blog.

I used Paton cha cha and knitted it up on size 13 needles.. which gave it a really nice lightweight almost lacy sheerness..

just a basic skinny scarf but it felt like it took forever cuz i did it lenghtwise. of course it wasn't any longer just felt like it since it takes so long to get to the end of the row. i do love how cute and girly the pink fuzzy is...and of course someone has already claimed it. one of these days i will actually keep one for myself...lol

Aziandoll, I was beyond fearful of working with dpn's, but decided to just try it, thinking the worst that could happen is that I'd have to rip it all out.

The first 20-30 minutes (at the most), I truly felt like I was wrestling an anorexic octopus, but then I suddenly found myself really flowing with it. The key is to only concentrate on the two needles you're actually working with. Let the other two just dangle there. Silver's sock tutorial (http://www.cometosilver.com/socks/SockClass_Beginning.htm) offers very detailed step-by-step photos of getting started on dpn's. Even if you aren't wanting to make socks, check out her tutorial. It really takes the fear out of dpn's. Just DO it! :thumbsup:

I love knitkit.com's Oregon Tote. Some day I will get the pattern and knit that up. It looks so practical, and I love the colors she shows them in!

Let us know how the DPNs go. I haven't used them before, but use my circulars constantly. I was watching a friend knit some socks on DPNs a while back, and it doesn't seem as daunting once you've seen it done. Good luck!

Here is my elongated stitch scarf....I only wrapped two times because I only had a teeny skein of this way cool thread. This is for my son's girlfiend, and he is modeling it for us....please note the rolled eyes.

Also here is my first washcloth. I love it, i bought lots more cheap yarn and printed a ton of patterns...great way to practice new things!!!

Tink, you might also want to check out Knitty.com's Fuzzy Feet slippers. They're knit just like a pair of socks, (easy if you've made socks; great practice if you haven't). They're fast knitting on size 10 1/2 needles. I like slippers that enclose my whole foot, so I like that pattern a lot, made a pair for my mom and she loves them. :happydance:

mascarasnake
05-22-2005, 12:32 PM
KellyK,
It is a great pattern, but I had a lot of trouble with them due to my washing machine. I don't have a hot/hot cycle, and I have had a lot of trouble with felting things that need to shrink a lot--like these slippers--so I had to felt them 10,000 times and I still wasn't thrilled. But the pattern itself is really great.
However, Tinkercat--your friend might like the fuzzy feet pattern more because it covers the ankles--I imagine that they would be way toastier than the FT Clogs.

I did it on my Denise Set.. when I got down to the 84 Stiches on the decrease.. I piggy backed both of the longest cords I had, then started the magic loop.. that worked SO perfect. I was stressing out a bit when I thought about HOW I was going to do it.. but that's the nice thing about the interchangable.. I just slid all the stiches past the connector.. snapped on a extender bar, a cable, and extender bar, another cable and then the needle.. viola.. like a 40" (or something reallllllly long) circular.. :) And it made the ML go really smooth.. :)

I needed a little diversion from my tank with stockinette that goes on and on and on and on :shock: so I knitted up a little baby bootie out of some extra (wild colored!) Bernat Sox yarn I had laying around. I got the pattern from a friend on a different message forum, who got it from her grandmother written on an index card. It is TEENY, it took me about 2 hours total to make. I'll share the pattern if anyone is interested.

A quick question....do you think they would be hard to make for someone who's never knit a sock before? I'd love to make a quick pair of booties for my pregnant friend. I'm nervous to start a pair as a gift without having already made the pattern. Don't want her baby to be my guinea pig. ;)

knitqueen
06-01-2005, 02:50 PM
Yes, it is perfect for never having knit socks before because it is not done in the round. It is done completely on straight needles so if you know how to knit, purl, pick up stitches, and bind off, you can do this!!!!! Easy easy and your friend will love it!

sorry, i posted it in another area bc the afghan was relating to something else, too. fyi, i'm sorry that i've not done the afghan as speedily as predicted at times but having to wear my brace these past 6 weeks bc of my disability and the severe increase in pain sometimes throws off my schedule.
i think that it turned out pretty well, i used knitpicks 'wool of the andes' in the color cloud bc that was what they requested. my sister (groom's mom) assures me that it will match their decor perfectly (new home)...so here we go...let me know what u think, it's only my 3rd afghan.
Oh My..I haven't been here in a while..that bootie is just tooooo cute!!! :heart: :heart: Lovinig it!!
And, how many times r we gonna have to diiscuss that socks r not from hell tinker...lol....remember what we talked about..we :heart: socks; we :heart: socks...and so on...lol
