omg I know what you are going to be!!! ha ha ha ha

Love the pendants...even the odd teeth one...and the dragonfly is fabulous!

I crocheted a few bun covers for my partner in the birthday swap.  She has daughters that are ballerinas...I never heard of these, but I don't have hair long enough to make a nice bun yet...they have an elastic to fit around the bun...pretty cool idea!

I also made another needlebook...never can have enough...I have them all over my house, in my car, in my project bags, etc.  This was also for a swap!

I think it would be great to cut out a pattern or letter and then have the paper or fabric underneath show thru and then be blurred by the paper...

You could also cut out designs and make things look etched?

It looks like the stuff I have put on some of my windows to make them more private and yet let light through...

Thanks, HSG!

Here is the picture of the designer's hat...it is just so lovely blocked, showing off the leaves...of course, it could be the darker yarn as well, so I will be making another using a rust colored yarn.

Needlebook - complete with a variety of needles and a needle threader...small enough to slip into your project bag for travel

I'll have a pic of the bunting before Monday!

Congrats!  It is always wonderful to reach a milestone in education or employment!

My swap partner received so I can now post what I sent to her!

A large tote using chicken fabric--about 10x10

Medium tote using eggs/chicken words--6x6

Needlebook with needles

Her is her picture with everything together, including the luscious alpaca yarn I sent.

Two more knit hats to add to my count!

Foliage Hat . I posted more info here .

Punkin Head Hat . I posted more info here.

Can someone tell me how one blocks a round hat?  Do I wash it and put it on a head stand?  How do you stretch out the pattern without stretching out the hat?

7  Punkin Head Hat in Knitting: Completed Projects by alwaysinmyroom on: August 26, 2015 07:34:57 AM
I love everything about pumpkins!  I decided that I needed to start using up my stash of orange yarns.  Found this pattern,
Punkin Head, which I thought would be fine for an adult! Grin

It was a very easy knit.  I used DK weight Stylecraft Yarn.

Can't wait to wear it!

Thanks for looking!

When it gets a bit cooler, I start sorting through my yarns for projects to keep me busy in the evenings.  I love binge watching TV (current show: Star Trek Enterprise! Love Scott Bakula!!!) and knitting.

I have been learning how to do cables so most of my knitting have some sort of cable design to help me practice.  I found this Foliage hat pattern that uses cables.  It was very easy but a bit time-consuming; I enjoyed it a lot and will probably make this hat a few times for friends.

I used Debbie Bliss Rialto DK weight yarn in a sage green.  It is great for stitch definition, but it is was very splitty.  I used bamboo needles since my metal ones were in use on another project.  The yarn kept sticking to them, so I finally switched them out to the metal and was able to finish much faster.  I have not blocked it yet.

Thanks for looking!

Well, except if you have lights on in the house at night...I walked my dog late one night and was shocked to see that I could see straight into my living room window, which has pretty patterned sheers...at least I live in a rural area with hardly any traffic or walkers...I now make sure that I am properly dressed when I have to be in the living room at night or else I run across the window! Grin

Been on a "use up my yarn stash" binge...

OK--I need to actually find or go buy a few of my team colors, like purple!  I have all sorts of purples except the shade I need...grrrr...

In the meantime, I made three hats in colors of the Cincinnati Bengals.  It just so happens that they are the same colors of the high school where many of my hubby's students go, so I can at least give the hats away! Grin  The good news is that I am done with one of my skeins of orange!
