Finally! My first thread! I've been a lurker on here for about a year, and just recently signed up... but now I've finally found a worthy reason to start a thread! So here goes
Earflap hat! I've been drooling over everyone else's creation, and now I was finally able to make one I was satisfied with. It was originally for my boyfriend but apparently it doesn't fit his ginormous head... so now it's mine.
I basically used the pattern for the "Anarchy Irony Hat" from SnB, and then mod. it to add earflaps.
One thing: I wasn't sure how to attach the braids, so it looks a little funny. Any suggestions?
Next is a headband based of off this thread: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=160533.0
. It was so amazingly cute and easy that I had to do it. And she was right; it only takes about half an hour!
And some unfinished things I wanted to share. I've made about a bazillion of those snowflakes for next Christmas (haha I'm getting a biiiig headstart!) and I just have to starch them now. And the head thingy is my beginning for Lucy the Turtle Girl, from here:http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=8825625. I accidentally left off about five rounds so she's a lot smaller than she's supposed to be.. and I only had 10 mm eyes that made her look like a bug, so I decided to try to embroider her eyes on. Still need to work on that... and I don't like the color of her skin, so I'm going to buy more yarn later today.
Whew! That was a lot. But I'm awfully proud of these, so comments appreciated!
