Overall I am pleased with how this turned out! This pattern is from the Fall 08 issue of Vogue Knitting. It was supposed to have a hood but it didn't come out right so I frogged it and just did some neckline ribbing. It is made out of bulky wool so it is very warm. Here it is...
This was my Thanksgiving weekend project. This shrug was fun and easy to knit! I used Nashua Handknits Sitar, a really gorgeous yarn. The pattern was the famous Anthropologie-inspired capelet, but I modified it a lot and made it into more of a shrug that buttons at the bottom than a capelet.
This is my first ever sweater! I used the Hey, Teach! pattern on Knitty. I was inspired by some very beautiful FOs here and on Ravelry. I kind of think it makes me look fat, its a little short, and its not perfect, but I don't even care because I made it and I love it!! I used Lion Brand Cotton-Ease.
I made these mittens using the Corazon pattern from Knitty. I love them!! They came out great and I couldn't be happier. I made them a little shorter than the pattern called for, because they were coming out long.
I made these slipper socks for my boyfriend. He is a very good boyfriend... he thinks its so cool that I know how to make things, and he even holds my skein of yarn and gives me more when I need it, when I'm knitting
These socks are super fuzzy and warm, and the yarn is really soft! I wanted something cheap so I used Sensations Angel Hair. It is hard to make socks using worsted, not sock yarn.. I had to keep frogging because they kept being too big.
I just finished these moccasin slippers. It only took me one day! They worked up so quickly and were fun to do. I used an awesome pattern on Ravelry by Umme Yusuf. They are my lemon moccasins because 1. they are bright yellow and 2. I made them while watching 30 Rock
This is my first project with cables! I am really happy with how it turned out. Cables are not nearly as scary as I thought they would be. The only thing is, my scarf curls like crazy on the edges. I tried blocking it and it helped a little. I don't really mind cause it's not that noticeable when I am wearing it.
What do you all do with old yarn? I have about 5 skeins of three different colors that I bought for my recently finished afghan that I did not use. I bought them sooo long ago and don't have the receipt so I can't return them. Also, the colors are bright yellow, orange, and green so I wouldn't use them to make anything else. Any ideas? Anyone want some brightly colored acrylic yarn? lol.
