So I made my second FO in knitting the antler scarf in Son of Stitch 'n Bitch with a cream yarn as you can see from my pictures. I'm very impressed because there is nothing in this scarf that I can noticeably see that is a mistake which is an amazing thing to know! Please don't point it out if you do see one haha.
So... I know someone already posted Quant, but here is my entry... start to finish. I used a baby weight yarn instead for something a little more delicate, and used size 5 needles instead. I suppose the technique I'd use would be Entrelac, but I've never created something with an I-cord either, nor have I used a double-pointed needle either. If you wanna get really really technical, this is my first completed project in knitting too. Here are my pictures. Oh and the milk bottle on there has the expiration date of 1/31/08 and that's what the close-up of the tag says too.
Okay, here are the items I used - a paisley skirt, a white jacket, a teal nightshirt, and a pair of teal maternity pants. There are detailed pictures of the skirt and the jacket to show off the ugliness. I spent $.25 on the skirt, nightshirt, and pants, and $1.00 on the white jacket.
I crocheted the purse using the skirt cut up into strips and then attatched to each other. The purse is a single crochet with one base chain and crocheted in one piece with no sewing of the actual purse. The handles of the purse are crocheted into the bag. The flower is a crocheted circle with one round of the white jacket material in double crochet and then two rows of the teal night shirt with single chains one in the front of the double crochet and one in the back of the double crochet. The button in the center came on the skirt, and there is a pin on the back of the flower to remove it from the purse. The lining of the purse is the maternity pants and just sewed to the inside of the purse below the handles. Here is the finished product with a ruler to show size and the flower detail and then the inside of the purse.
