1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Aviator Hat and 2 Scarves (7 pics) on: January 19, 2008 04:51:42 AM
Hello Everyone!

I know about a million craftsters have done the aviator cap but I wanted to make it too! Smiley
I actually made this hat about 3 times because the pattern (found here: http://www.headhuggers.org/patterns/kpatt07.htm) called for size 8 needles which made the hat huge, so I went down to size 7 and then finally size 4 needles. I made it with Red Heart Super Saver Worsted Yarn in Windsor Blue. This was actually my first FO on knitting needles.

Here's the one with the size 7 needles (sorry the picture is so bright):

as you can see it was a little too big one me...

For the one with size 4 needles I added an icord to each flap and two pompoms that I made myself.

And Another View:

The two scarves I did about a year ago on a knitting loom.

The first one I made using two different yarns and I added tassels to the end. I found this one especially handy during my trip to Arizona last Christmas, and since it was made on a loom it didn't take long at all to make. It's actually taller than me at about 6 ft! (I'm short though, 5'0")

On me:

And modeled by our snowman:

The second scarf was made for my sister with some fun yarn. She wanted a skinny scarf so I decided to make her one. I knitted this one on the loom as well, but as a flat panel.

Modeled by my sister:

Hope you guys enjoyed this. Comments are appreciated and thank you for looking! Smiley
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Help with Pattern on: January 15, 2007 10:20:30 PM
I'm a newbie knitter so I don't have much experience. My pattern says to:

Inc 1 st (i.e., K1, then K1 into the back loop of the same st)

I don't understand what it means by knitting into the back loop of the same stitch... does it mean the stitch I just knitted or what? If so how would I do this?

Help would be greatly appreciated!

Much thanks,
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Wrist Warmers and Doggy Sweater on loom! on: December 13, 2006 04:55:03 PM
I've always wanted wrist warmers and I found this great, easy pattern for making them on a loom here:

So without further ado here they are (sorry if it's a lil blurry)

I also made a sweater for my chihuahua on the loom, as well as a little hat with holes for her ears! She loves it!

and another

Feel free to tell me what y'all think! Smiley

4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / First Recon Ever! Shirt to Shirt! LoL :) on: January 21, 2006 09:54:03 PM
So a few days ago I decided to try reconstruction after seeing all the wonderful stuff on board. I chose a shirt that I use to sleep since I didn't want to mess up any of my good shirts...I made it smaller, made it into a v-neck, fixed the sleeves, and also made it shorter since it was way too long!

Anywho I know its really plain but I'm really proud!


Me wearing it with my pigtails!:

 Do y'all have any suggestions on making it better?

So this was my first transfer ever!

Today (Aug 18) is my birthday (I'm 17 now) so I decided that everything might as well revolve around me too so I made this shirt last night to wear to school today:

The text says:
Name: Berenice
Occupation: Being Freakin' Cool!

Here's me wearing it:

And just for fun:

oh yeah and really I'm not stuck up! I was just very happy today!  Grin
6  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Discussion and Questions / Underwear Stencil on: May 15, 2005 04:17:15 PM
Can anyone tell me where I can find a stencil of a pair of undies?

I need it so I can make a shirt...  Grin

Thanks a bunch!

I decided to make some stencils after seeing all the wonderful stencils here! They are pics of me...

The purple one is the original stencil that I printed and made. The green one is the one I just made using the purple stencil...  I hope that made sense

The red I have not yet tried...
