It is simply beautiful, Rebecca! :D I wish I had the patience to make an afghan. :doh:

;) Thank you, my friend, u could start out with something with very large yarn & needles & it wouldn't take so long....the only reason that this one took me so long is bc i had a severe setback with my disability and just had no desire to knit (that says a LOT) when it's been the knitting that i've discovered helps me to get my mind off of the pain..oh well, enough about that.
Now, Renn, are u one of these :XX: with several wips at a time or are u like me..a monogamous knitter..true to the project u r working on....I very seldom have more than one wip UNLESS one of those wip is an afghan or some type of really large project; then u can break the monotony by doing a small project and stop the afghan for a while....that's how i started sally's belly shirt...but i had the set back & couldn't even knit it! lol...sally and I both hope that I feel better and get back to her belly shirt and finish it by monday bc after then or around the middle of the week, not sure of the time; my husband has something going on with a deadlie & needs my help (moral support) and i won't be around for a while...that's why i hope i can go now & get a bit of sleep...then work on her belly shirt..her nail polish matches the pink in the yarn, i'm using 'crayon' by knitpicks and the yarn does look like a box of crayons...she will be very bright indeed! u have a good day...cya
thanks again for what u said about the afghan!! :waving: :waving:

Now, Renn, are u one of these with several wips at a time or are u like me..a monogamous knitter..true to the project u r working on.... :XX:

Rebecca, I have at least six wip's at the moment. I tend to be a better starter than finisher. :blush:

Renn, thank you for what u said about the afghan...that means so much to me...u r a sweetheart :heart: !

Renn...don't u be like that now...I was playing ;) with u...i just don't have the ability to have several wips. at one time....would drive me crazier than i am...lol...i know u r finishing what u r starting...just bc u r a fast starter....who says there has to be a time when u finish? I don't have a knitting time keeper over here...and I haven't seen them sold on any sites or in any lys....it think that the time keeper is u and my time keeper is me...so u finish when u want to finish, that's not important...what's important is that u like what u :XX: and are :happydance: happy while you are doing it and that YOU are :happydance: :happydance: happy with it when u finsih it...no matter when that is, right?!

Thanks. I actually found another one to make.. the "Mezza Luna" from knitkit.com. It's like a crescent shape.. looks like PacMan. :) I plan to post pictures when I'm done with it. It's a little confusing though... :XX:

Everything is so cool it would take me forever to comment on all of them! Especially like mascara's wedding shrug and rebecca's afghan...I don't know if I could ever do that! Since I'm not a "monogomous" knitter I am sure it would take FOREVER. I know I've said it before, but it is so fun to see what everyone has done. Here is my latest...I am calling it The Butterfly Tank...another design endeavor.

I have actually completed a lot lately...I have pictures of all of them HERE (http://www.divaknitting.com/finished%20projects/finished%20projects.htm). I have to add one more pic to this thread though..I love these little baby socks in Opal Petticoat!

Mer
06-06-2005, 06:29 PM
Kemp--that butterfly tank is so cool!!!! I think you should get that one published. Or post a free pattern! ;) I'm so impressed with your designing abilities.

kemp
06-06-2005, 07:18 PM
You are too kind! I do it for fun...so I can make "cooler" (of course I would think they are cool since I designed it! :) haha) more updated items. The only thing I would do differently is make the ribbing part a little longer. I have low risers on in the pic, so it probably looks a little shorter than it is, but another inch or two would be perfect.

Incidentally, I would like to publicly thank you again for testing my other tank pattern :cheering: ...it looks awesome on you! Maybe you should post it in this thread???

Mer
06-06-2005, 08:28 PM
Well sure, Kemp, if it's ok with you.... :D

Kemp generously offered to let me test out one of her tanks before submitting it for publication, so here's the finished product! And, amazingly enough, I did not crop out my head.

Kemp, I love that you design these yourself!!!! I love the color of the butterfly tank on you, and I like the length, looks great!

Thanks Rebecca. You have to try to stop in!!!! Everyone will miss you if you don't :crying: If Kelly were here, I am sure she would have something much more clever to say on the issue.

Good luck with whatever your home dealy brings! Hope you can still find time to :XX: !!!!!!!!

Love the purple, Mer! You are so pretty!

You are highly talented, Kemp! Those are great designs.

So how long do we wait before we start to gossip about Rebecca? :lol: I am absolutely just kidding, you are a sweetheart, Rebecca!

Mer
06-07-2005, 02:01 PM
Thanks, guys! :blush: The purple halter was made with Araucania Nature Cotton in Dark Purple (http://www.jimmybeanswool.com/secure-html/onlinegen/currgen/Araucania/NatureCotton.asp?showLarge=true&specPCVID=3525). I love that color! And it had some interesting dye variations and textures.

I finished my felted bag. I left it in the washed a bit too long I think. I didn't want it quite as fuzzy. The second picutre is before felting.

Wow, I've been missing a lot of good things. That afghan is stupendous Rebecca. really classy and a gorgeous thing to have around the house.

btw, I've been down (literally on the bed) with allergies for a week, first time it EVER HAPPENED).

Sooooooo, I've got to catch up but just have to say I need one of those beautiful halter tops now that it's reached 90 like overnight.
They are sooo sexy & sweet. You guys got the figures to show them off.... I better get exercising again. Is that pattern the one you posted before Kemp? the butterfly tank?
I'll go back & look right now!

Wow! I am so impressed with you ladies!

Rebecca - that afghan is GORGEOUS! It looks like a beautiful heirloom that they will just love. :heart: :heart: :heart: :heart:

Mer - that halter is great! And such a pretty color purple, and model too!

Stacy - Nice job on the bag! I am amazed at how small they shrink. I have 10 more rows and an i-cord left on mine. Can't wait to see the felting magic! live and in person myself!

I'm so happy I got the chance to hop on here again tonite because I :heart: :heart: :heart: :heart: those compliments.... :roflhard: :rofling: :rofling: . For real, thanks, all of you for your kind words, it makes me very humble.
Vic...my husband had severe allergies, then found out the majority of the problems was the fact that he needed surgery; he still gets them quite badly & I feel for you, poor thing...I've watched him suffer...a bunch...hope u r lots better!!
What pattern r ya'll using for the felting bag? the only one i've done is the Marsupial Tote in the 1st SnB, but I misread & order too little amt of yarn & then used smaller needles..still turned out ok, just not as large.
I've gotten Cherry Blossom & Blue Bonnet in Wool of the Andes from KP for my Booga Bag & I got KP's dye your own to do Sophie and the French Market Bag at Knitty....Love felted bags...but I have projects in front of them before it's their turn! I so, so wish I could be like so many of ya'll & do several projects at once, but I can't unless it's a majorly large project that I have to take a break from & then I can do somthing small for just a little while. :?? I was wondering why on Earth I was like that & when I was talking with my sis a few nites ago she said that i have always been like that during my entire crafty/arty life....I would have to finish what ever I was working on before trying something else & our Mom was the same way...so ..... YAY for me and MAMA!! My sister...she's like ya'll....a gazillion things at a time and keeps up with it....ya'll r just miracle makers or something....okay, i'm off to look around then go knit....have a great evening one & all....

Wow those two tank tops are wonderful and you two models look great as well. :happydance:

The most recent thing I've finished that is not socks is a Pi R Squared shawl that was designed by E Zimmerman. I have a bit of trouble with her patterns as she writes them the way I would like to write patterns....They are a bit hard for someone else to understand. Not a lot of extra explainations of what she was thinking when she wrote them. However the schematic of this shawl makes it crystal clear. I put different lace sts into each section.

Soxy

Thank you Vicki it was fun to knit. I love lace work but don't know if it is my favorite, not sure I could figure that out.

I got the yarn at a Fiber Expo from Newtons/Yarn Country. He sells lots of mill ends from garment manufactors. The only thing on this ones label was Italian Mohair. It was lace weight with a small slub and a bit of a sheen.

Here's the completed pair of baby booties - I posted a pic of one of them a few weeks ago and also posted the pattern in the patterns forum of this site. The baby they are for is to be born any moment!

I'm impressed soxy!!!! It's beautiful...and knitqueen I love the booties...especially the colors!!! I just knit my first set of booties and they don't even compare.

Soxy
06-14-2005, 07:37 PM
Thank you MaggieL it was fun to knit and I enjoy wearing it.

knitqueen
06-14-2005, 07:38 PM
The yarn I used was so cheap. $2.00 for a ball of Bernat Sox in the color called Hot Tamale. It was actually leftover from a pair of adult socks....these booties use SO little yarn.

Soxy
06-14-2005, 07:38 PM
Joel thank you for the compliment...A knitting magazine would cut into my knitting time. ;)

knitqueen,

those booties are beautiful... i tried my hand at making booties a few weeks ago and they look good, but not as good as yours. I love the shape of them and the colors are grand!

well done...

this thread is so inspiring :)

Soxy.............WOW :inlove: :shock: :inlove: I LOVE your shawl!! It is beautiful!! How long did it take? I would love the be that good some day.......

Joel.......I already had Doug's yarn, have a bit done, I really want to finish before the move. I want to be able to start on my afghan when I get unpacked, not to mention all the Christmas presents I need/want to do.

How is your latest project coming along? I think I might try to do some quick dish clothes before the move too.

Sara
06-16-2005, 01:06 AM
My gosh, Soxy! I missed the picture of your shawl when I looked at this last time. I'm glad I went through it again. That is gorgeous!!

U HAVE ALL ooops....didn't meant to yell! you have all done wonderful work, as usual! Soxy I love your zimmerman shawl, u did tell me that u changed all patterns& it looks to be changed for the better ;)

knitqueen-still luvin' those booties...do we have a baby yet? I bet 'mom' is past ready, isn't she?! she & baby r gonna love the booties!

Aby, u didn't write the story of your bag here! she was hurting & had to go to the dentist & i believe it was her mil that took her, so aby knit this bag with a pic of mil's house on it (am I correct?) the story was written at the other posting; forgive me if I got the person wrong...but..whomever you did it for will cherish that gift from the heart forever!! I sure hope ur feeling better!

great work everyone, I so enjoy looking at it & your stories behind each piece!

Aby

hehe it was my mom. My mom-in-law lives in Kansas, though I'm sure she would have taken me as well. I'm 32 so it's not everyday that I need help from my mom. I told my DH "sometimes, a woman just needs her mommy" :lol:

Soxy
06-16-2005, 11:36 AM
Lisa, Thank you very much.

I had the shawl done in about 10 days, 3 of them I was sitting a car going along a highway I've traveld a lot of times so I did a lot of knitting. [I'm glad I can knit in a car or I'd really get bored going over the same road.] The best way to imporve is to try everything you like!!!

Sara, Thank you for the nice comments about my shawl. It is fun to wear.

Thanks Rebecca. EZ's shawl was garter st with a saw tooth edge. Her dd Meg did one in lace sts so I just picked out sts I liked to use. I did use Meg's edging but only put it on the garter st part.

Lisa, I have total confidence that you'll complete it before the move. Plus, you can get the boys to help you pack. :-) My project is going slow. I'm really working on my tension issues. Last weekend, we went out of town, for a romantic weekend and I took knitting with me, R took her crochet.

Then I got sick, sore throat, sore mouth, fever, the works... so I didn't end up doing much except laying on the bed in the hotel room. This weekend, we're staying in another hotel on the south edge of the city on Saturday night and meeting up with our next door neighbors on Sunday to go to a Ren Fair (its Ale weekend). :-) So I don't know if I'll get anything done this weekend either. I got a few rows done this week but not much, we've been out almost every night this week so I have a ton of chores to do tonight when I get home, while R is at school.

Here's my version of the Java a Go Go (http://www.magknits.com/warm04/patterns/java.htm). I made it with Wool of the Andes "Cherry Blossom", with Wool of the Andes "Carrot" for the crochet edge and the duplicate stitching around the middle. It was an easy 1 day project!

rebecca
06-18-2005, 05:31 PM
What I was about to say is...that's not 'dweebish'....that, my friend, is the height of being 'put together'....lol...please tell me that your socks were made of the same yarn or if not exact yarn...the same color yarn, just different weight!...just think...u have autumn coming...u can throw in a scarf, mittens, hat....the list is endless!!! And you will be such a bright fall creature with the colors...everyone will be chilly & your 'brightness of color' will make everyone warm as the color makes them think of the warmth of summer & spring....as I said....endless!

Ok, this is not knitted , but I thought I would post it anyway :mrgreen:

This is a crocheted bag out of 24 squares! It was more easy than I had think, but chrocheting them together took me as long as crocheting 12 of the squares.

Well, after frogging so many times, I finally figured out that when you knit with 0000 needles you have to go loose and easy!

I think it turned out great and am so excited to make another one. This one is for my friend, and so now I want one myself!

I used a spoon as a size guide, is that weird? ! :cheering:

GAWGEOUS!!!!!!

knitqueen
06-20-2005, 10:19 PM
Knitfun, that looks great!!! I'm actually using a different color bead on mind - the beads are all somewhat different but it's in the purple family of colors (but some of the beads are green, some are gold.....wait, let me see if I can find a pic....) Okay, these (http://cgi.ebay.ca/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=5001138659&ssPageName=STRK:MEWN:IT) are the beads I'm using. I'm using ecru colored yarn though so it's quite a contrast, but it's looking really good.

I've been wanting to make one of these! I don't have the right DPNs, but I was thinking I could probably manage it w/ Magic Loop or two circulars. We'll see.

I love the colors you picked, K.Q.! Very Cute!

06-20-2005, 11:17 PM

I made these last night so I can do a felted coasters project with the residents of the retirement community at which I work. They were all so ENTHRALLED to watch the progress on my Fiber Trends slippers, so I thought this would be a good way to introduce them to felting!

I still have to make the "before" knitted version.

knitfun
06-21-2005, 11:18 AM
Knitqueen,

Awesome bead colors. :thumbsup:
I bet that will look awesome. I am going to go with something different for myself too. Haven't picked them yet, but will let you know when I do.

I have at least 3 other projects that I have to finish first! :happydance:

finally finished Nikki's bag and dwindling down the WIP list.
I'm a bit disappointed that it didn't turn out more blue. the skeins of Kureyon ended up having more green than blue. but overall I'm happy with it.

Oh! Those are so cute. I was just thinking that I need to felt some coasters for my brand new kitchen table. This will prevent me from fussing at the kids about leaving sweaty glasses sitting there. :oops:

WOW some fab items in this thread today!!!

:XX: fun that bracelet is wonderful...Yes you need one for you as well.

:XX: queen those beads will look great in a bracelet, what color thread/yarn?

Kelly I love the idea of felted coastes as a learning project for felting. The residents will love makeing their own coasters.

This is a two-fer. My tank and DD's shrug all in one. Or ON one. One being me.

Hated the pics with my face in them. Love the shrug. The tank looks great from the back. Oddly enough, it is the same on both sides, so I think my problem is with my front not the tank's.

I'm going to take a pic of the tank by itself on a hanger tomorrow and post it, too.

Enjoy!

Thanks, everybody for the kudos on my coasters....I am ALL excited about this project with my ladies...I ordered 2 skeins each of 10 different colors of WOTA for them & Im going to encourage them to come up with their own designs...most of them are crocheters, so can you imagine how COOL a multi-colored granny square would look felted???

My version of Zeeby's Bag from S 'n B is now complete. It is 'my version' because A) I made it quite a bit smaller than the pattern B) I used way wilder colors ;) C) I used a cable down the side panels instead of plain garter stitch D) I didn't add a pocket (So basically I stole Zeeby's idea and made it my own! :happydance: )

Here it is!! :XX: (Front view and side so you can see the cable)

Hey Kemp,

The threading of the beads took me a few days, and the knitting took a few weeks. If you go for it, remember to knit looser than you normally would.

I had dropped many a stitch before figuring that out!

Thanks, I started threaading more beads to make one for myself.

knitqueen
06-23-2005, 11:38 AM
Knitfun, are you threading beads from a container or from a hank?? I did mine from a hank and with a few near misses of spilling the whole thing, I had to pick up by needle about 100 beads and I could not imagine picking up over 1000 loose beads by hand. Yikes.

Hildie, yep, it's the slip stitch pattern from "Knit Hats" - I love that series!

Kemp, I knit with the group at "All Crafts for Charity" Yahoo! group. We have a different charity every month, though my fav so far is Father's House International which knits for orphanages in the Ukraine - I think that pre-teens and teens are a group that a lot of folks forget about, not that preemies and babies shouldn't be knit for, but I like making stuff for the older kids.

Jod, doesn't some yarn just make you think of gumdrops!? :)

Here's my beaded bracelet. I started out with the Mary Ella Beaded Bracelet (http://knitty.com/ISSUEwinter04/PATTmaryella.html) but didn't like how wide it was so I made up my own simple version. Cast on 6 stitches, garter stitch for about 1/2", then knit 2, slide 2 beads, knit 2, slide 2 beads, knit 2. So simple and easy and knit up pretty quick, even though on teeny needles. I think I'll wear it a lot! :happydance:

The instructions for knitting with beads look complicated and are very wordy, but once you get the hang of it, the pattern is very basic and repeats itself a lot.

I used DMC Perle Cotton Size 8 'yarn' (more of a thread) and size 1.5mm needles. Not sure what that is in US sizes...the pattern I started out with called for a 0000 which is a 1.25mm but the smallest I could find was 1.5mm....at that small, I'm sure .25mm doesn't make that much difference!! Needless to say, they were tiny.

Anyway... this morning saw the completion of my second project. (also a dishrag). I used 8 ply cotton yarn. I will say this... at least this one has no holes like my first one did! ;)

Hmm... 1 dishrag per month. Maybe if I start a scarf now I can finish it in time for next summer. :lol:

Kemp,
The pattern is from a kit I got at a craft fair in London. I have searched the web using the author's name .. Yvey Wayling.. and there is nothing. There is no address or other information on the instruction sheet. I wanted to ask permission to share the pattern or at least be able to offer somewhere you could find it. I would love to share, but don't want to break any rules :)

Amp,
It was SO EASY! Thanks mostly to Amy's videos and informatin I get from the forum. It has K,P, K2tog, tbl ... through the back loops... I had to look that one up ... psso, sl1K and yarn overs which she calls yarn foward. I was wishing I had taken a picture of the flower she made... but just followed the directions step by step and YEA!!! It looks just like hers. We just moved so my reward for unpacking 2 boxes is to knit 30 minutes ... it probably took about 3 hours not counting the unpacking part. There are three circles of petals stacked on top of each other, two leaves and the stem.


I bought 3 skeins of yarn to use for flowers very next day!

Well, I finally took the time to take some pictures of the things I've been knitting while procrasting on the last sleeve of my Tricot sweater. Pardon me for the large post, but here goes:

http://photos16.flickr.com/22839155_c9aa5cd293.jpg

And some individual pics:

http://photos19.flickr.com/22839156_bdc0f62950.jpg

I love this Sugar 'n Cream yarn -- it's called Playtime. This is a dishcloth from the Nifty Knit Dishcloths book from Leisure Arts.

http://photos6.flickr.com/22839158_034be84484.jpg

And this is proof that Lion Brand's Landscape yarn does indeed felt! I did this little swatch by hand. I used hot tap water w/ Dawn dishwashing liquid, scrubbed it roughly, and then plunged it into cold water. I did this probably 10 times (I didn't really count, though). At first it didn't seem like it was going to do anything, and then all of a sudden voila!

http://photos16.flickr.com/22839159_8da70c46b9_m.jpg http://photos19.flickr.com/22839160_29e83a535a_m.jpg

I knit this cloth from this (http://www.knitlist.com/99gift/towel-and-cloth.htm) pattern. Instead of using it as a "towel," I use it as a center cloth on my kitchen table. (A bigger image of the stitches can be found here (http://photos19.flickr.com/22839160_29e83a535a_o.jpg).)

http://photos18.flickr.com/22840124_c68e59a875.jpg

And, finally, the 10-Minute Tank (http://www.zibibboisgood.com/patterns/patt_10minutetank.pdf), which I am not overly thrilled with. I moved up 2 needle sizes & knit very loosely to try and attain gauge, and it turned out very sloppy looking. So, I am going to try again and just knit it at my natural gauge using the needles she suggested. I have never been very good at determining my gauge in garter stitch, and I think I need to revisit that section of my "Knitting for Dummies" book. I feel like a dummy when I look at this dang tank. I won't let DD wear it in public. :oops:

And that's it for now -- again, sorry for hogging the space here!!

great projects, dot mom. I :heart: the colors in your dishcloth...glad you gave the brand/color.

I always wondered about that landscapes. It seems like it is about the same price though as some 100% wools so I have never tried it. They do have good colors though.

I thought it was a little pricey, too, especially given the fact that there are only 55 yards in a ball! Let's say you're going to make a Booga Bag. That requires roughly 330 yds of yarn. If you bought the Landscapes yarn @ Joann's for $5.99/ball, you'd spend almost $36 w/out tax!!
:shock:

And that's our word problem for the day. :)

p.s. You can get Noro Kureyon (the recommended yarn for the Booga Bag) at Wool Needlework Yarn (http://www.woolneedlework.com/Yarn/Kureyon_by_Noro_yarn.shtml) for $5.99 for 110-yd skein. That means that the project cost would drop to $25.49 including shipping.

I just did the math @ Joann's online, and the total project cost including shipping would be $43.89 with Landscapes!! Yikes! And this yarn is $6.99/ball @ Lion Brand's online store!! :shock:

OMG ... am I RANTING?

I must be a total yarn geek because I absolutely *love* using variegated yarns so that I can see what the colors are going to do w/ the pattern I'm using. I hardly ever buy solid-colored cotton for that very reason. :?eyebrow: Is that weird?

Silver --

Did you use the yarn recommended in the pattern book?

I can't believe it, but I'm actually thinking it might be a fun project to undertake! :shock: Of course, I think I might also be losing my mind, too.

Seriously, I like the modularity of it, and if nothing else, one could turn finished squares into pillows if it became too big of a project to finish.

I just keep going back to look at it again and again. Are you going to hang it, or is it a gift for someone? I can't imagine using it as an actual blanket! I'd be terrified of it getting ruined somehow!

Silver
07-02-2005, 10:19 AM
Yes, I used the recommended yarn, Plymouth Encore. The pattern calls for 20 balls, that's for the afghan and 4 throw pillows (which I'm not making). I have 2 full balls left, so if I wanted to make the pillows I'd probably need at least 1, maybe 2 more balls.

I am going to be using it as a blanket. It's much too cozy and lovely NOT to use. But that's the good thing about Encore, you can machine wash and dry it with abandon. I wouldn't use a luxury yarn for an afghan.. ever. I'm a firm believer in USING what I knit, or making sure others can use it.

This was a very enjoyable project. Since each square is so different, when each one was finished, it was like a little finished object all by itself. That really kept the project fun and not overwhelming. The border took the longest to knit. And peicing everything together wasn't fun, but definitely worth the effort! :heart:

It'll be the only potholder every made in qiviut!

OK ... I had to look it up:

Quiviut: The soft greyish-brown underwool of the rare Arctic animal, the musk ox, and the warmest, lightest wool in the world. It can be made into incomparably soft garments that can be worn next to the skin.

I'm sure it would make a lovely potholder, Silver. Go for it. ( I saw a kit with a 2 oz skein for $80. :shock: )

Hi all, I've been out of the loop awhile...taking care of alot of work issues that put my knitting on hold, but I finished this baby blanket for my nephew. It's the ruffle garter baby blanket pattern. I knitted a little pocket and put 2 little puppy toys into it. Here are a few pictures. :D

When I first started the blanket I was thinking of knitting in little animals and such, but I got lazy (and wasn't sure how to do it—KellyK, you gave me a few ideas, but I just couldn't get my head around it). So I came up with the pockets (I wanted my nephew to get it before he became a teenager.

I'm going to try and knit some baby gear for Luke (he's is the greatest little guy...I can't help but be a proud aunt :heart:). A baby hat for sure, but are there any easy patterns for baby sweaters anyone can recommend?

Now I am getting back into full knitting speed! :XX:

Congrats on the afghan Silver.... geez, I'm making my first afghan with some acrylic stuff and it's as simple as can be but I know I'll make a more complicated one in the future. I usually never use acrylic but I had some laying around and then read a post here by someone who says her acrylic afghans last for YEARS and get thrown in the washer etc etc so I thought I might as well use it up.
(I did a search to see what your yarn was made of!)

I'm sure you'll really enjoy that baby, and speaking of babies, what a sweetie in that picture!

My felted clogs! :) These are knit in Cascade 220 yarn, #8400 Charcoal Grey and #8401 Silver Grey.

Unfortunately, I made these while my mom and sister were here... so it looks like I will need to make at least 2 more pairs. (Although I taught them both to knit so they'd stop asking me to make everything that I've done for me, for them too. LOL)

(jeez, i think i'm becoming a groupie! "If only i could knit like Silver".... :pray:... scary)

I actually bought the pattern today after thinking about it for AGES. They look like a great project for Xmas pressies!


And i really like the baby blanket with the pockets. WOW - does Luke have some hair or what??!! :shock: :D Definitely not one of those bald, old man-looking babies! :) At first glance i though he was wrestling with one of those walking-wig type of guinea pigs!

I am making the Later Gator mittens from Stitch 'n Bitch Nation for my kids. I made one mitten yesterday, the smallest size (supposed to be for size 2-6) for my 2 year old and it is too small. It was so easy to make though that making a larger size will not be too much of a burden, and not much yarn lost! (I used cheap yarn anyways! :lol: ). Despite the size problem, the mitten came out super cute and I'm really thrilled with it. Almost more of a puppet than a mitten. I wish these pictures were better, but here ya go!

But I'd still wear em. So which one of you will be visiting me in the nuthouse?

I wanted to mention....

If anyone is going to attempt the Later Gator Mittens, there is a pattern correction here (http://www.bust.com/knithappens/oops.shtml) that will make a BIG difference in the outcome. Also, a few weird little things in the pattern that I noticed as I went along. For instance, at one point it said to knit 9 rows in stockinette stitch starting on RS, then the next instruction was for starting on the RS as well....ummmmm, that would technically be row 10 and that would be a wrong side row as far as I know :?? . Anyways, I just winged that part and it came out fine!

Congrats on your hat! It just might be the inspiration I need to finish up my first (and only) hat I've made (the Rowan "May" pattern). I must have seamed and re-seamed so many times that I've just left it (and I was so proud of my learning to decrease). I have a few months until winter...

I added a little scarf though... I just thought it would be cute. Knit in Andean Silk on size 3s. This pattern is not for the faint of heart.

It's kool wool jeans blue and the collar is fancy fur
Stained Glass Black, both by Lion. Wool is warm, yes.. but I was thinking of how she's always complaining about her classroom being cold. I'd try it on for yall but she's a petite little monkey and she's still in Kansas.

Hi all! I just finished 2 scarves (1 adult and 1 kid size) and my first pattern project (baby hat). I couldn't upload the pictures here because they're too big. But here's a link to my blog where the pics are.

The Mod Squad was here ;)

Ok, here's what I've finished in my short knitting career:

Pillow: (http://www.acrilan.com/patterns/Feb02/embossedpillows.html)
Made this pretty much just to use up some yarn. It looks kinda like the purple pillow in the link, but I didn't use a chart, I used printed directions. I can't find the exact link I used. You can't really see the embossed star because my gauge was so loose and the variegated yarn conceals the design as well, but it's there.

Scarf:
I made this for my GF's sister. This was just straight up knitting, no pattern involved. I think I knitted 5 stitches and then purled 1 in the hopes that it wouldn't curl, but it didn't really work.

Camera case (the orange thingy):
This was my latest FO again for my GF's sister (would that be GFS?). I made my own DPNs out of dowels from Michaels to make this (thanks Amy!). I started out following a pattern for a cell phone case but ended up just making a 30 stitch tube with a flappy-doo on the top. I also ended up turning it purl side out so the flappy-doo would curl the right way. I don't know if she wants a button or velcro on it or not. We'll see.

Anyways, enjoy! I did!

yeah ya know ya gotta use like at least 4 stiches on either side for it to not curl. geez maybe even 6 on each side. I tired that with a sweater but it just came out all funny looking.

JGM, the scarf may not have done what you wanted, but I LOVE it! :heart:

I hate it when I get behind on this thread...so inspirational!!! I am sure I will leave something out, but I have to comment on at least some things!

catknit, beautiful blanket and beautiful baby. I really like the pocket too!

knitqueen, that mitten is sooooooooo cute! You mentioned it being too small...maybe small enough for a newborn? (well, by winter, they'll be 6 months) I have to make those for *my* twins!

aby, The hat is awesome. I love the color...even to wear without hunting! And the scarf...isn't ribbon yarn fun! I didn't realize thought that I was supposed to worry about it twisting! I'm way too lazy for that :) Oh...and the shrug is fab. You should post another pic with your DD modeling her finished item.

silver...Your clogs look sooooooooooo perfect. Are you sure you really need them in sunny Florida??? :roflhard: :roflhard: I guess all that air conditioning can be cold though :) The bunny is adorable. I might need to make that for the twins too!

jgm, that scarf is AWESOME! :heart: :heart: :heart: the colors!

kk...Rockin' felted bag! I need t get cracking on another one of those too. My current felted bag is starting to look slightly ragged :)


Whew! Now that I'm caught up I need to start making some of this cool stuff!!!

My Fuzzy Feet (http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEwinter02/PATTfuzzyfeet.html) are finished!!!! I was really curious how these MASSIVE socks were going to turn into nice little fuzzy slippers, but man, only about 5 minutes of agitating in the washer and they were DONE. Glad I checked at 5 minutes or they may have been passed down to my 3 year old :roflhard: . The pink cuff is Wool of the Andes "Cherry Blossom" (the yarn that never dies....I swear I have used it for about 4 different projects and I STILL have little bits leftover :thinking: ) and the remainder of the slipper is Paton's Classic Merino Wool in "Dary Grey Mix".

:XX:

Yeah, I plan to when she returns. Right now, she's in Kansas, visiting with her grandparents and her aunt. She flies back on Saturday so look for something by the end of this weekend :thumbsup:

I'm a newish knitter, and this link shows most of what I've made in the last 2 or 3 months. There are 3 pictures, and you can see them in a slideshow.

My next project is a circular knit pullover made with Katia Flash ribbon. I am really nervous that it won't fit. I did the gauge swatch and got measured at the LYS, so there's hope. I haven't made a real garment yet, just scarves.
