So, now that I've got this pic-hosting thing down (mostly), I'll post the other things I've been up to.
And be forewarned, I suck at taking pictures, and I am new to this "show off your work" stuff!! Everything is made out of RedHeart SuperCHEAP, because I didn't want to be experimenting with nice, soft, expensive yarn!
First ever completed scarf, made for my mom for XMas:
Closeup of detail:
The pattern came from a link off Craftster, something along the lines of "Irish Roses" or something, but because I did this back in December, I can't remember...
The detail is just surface-stitched in single crochet.
Then the first toque (hat for the non-Canadians!) I ever made... Made for me, but turned out too small, so my DD got it instead... but, cuz it's made of cheapo yarn, it scratched her ears and was never worn after the pictures were taken
Then my daughter demanded a "Santa Hat," in the sweet way that 3 year olds have, and I just had to oblige. Totally winged this after gaining confidence with the previous toque. Made out of Much thinner yarn, the kind that comes on a cardboard tube (??I am still completely clueless about this stuff!!). The edge is done in regular stuff, using a puff stitch I believe it's called, to give it some OOMPF.
An Eco-Sleeve for my sister... did another one too, but I can't find the pic right now. Done in ribstitch (?) for stretch, "embroidered" with yarn and a darning needle.
And last, but not least, a neckwarmer for a friend, this had some super-soft yarn in it, and some pretty button I found *somewhere*
Sorry for the picture overload, I am just so darn excited to be able to start sharing!!
Questions, comments, criticism (why does that look like it's spelled wrong??!!) are welcome!!
