1  Baby Yoda feels the Force in Halloween Costumes by Kick on: November 05, 2008 06:27:21 PM
So I saw a costume of Yoda in a store and was totally "I can do that" (when, no I really couldn't). Despite that, this is the first outfit I've sewn myself, so I'm proud of it.

The robe is just broadcloth that I sewed as a robe, then added a hood and made a brown belt. The ears are just a wrap around headband and layers of material sewn together to flop over the little guy's ears. The light saber is store bought.

Unfortunately, my model doesn't stand still. So here are some action shots. The ones where he does not have the light saber, well, he's working up a temper tantrum. He really likes his light saber.

Second one is done!

This is the first time I've tried cables and it didn't go badly. There is one spot where I zagged when I was supposed to zig and another time where I twisted the three stitches when I knitted them back in. Not bad for a first time!

3  Beer Cozy in Knitting: Completed Projects by Kick on: May 01, 2008 08:12:52 AM
I wanted to make my husband something useful and fun for his birthday this month. I found this pattern in Knitting with Balls by Michael del Vecchio.

I liked this pattern because it has a bottom to it and not just sides like in some cozy patterns I've seen. I also liked the yarn I had to use, Cascade Fixation, because it had elastic in it. I made my first trip to a LYS just to get it. I learned to YO and got more practice at knitting in the round with DPN. It was hard to start it, but turned out really well. This is also the first time I've blocked something I've knitted.

Next I'll try another version that has cables on the side. I've never done cables before, so I thought I'd save it till I got the 'simple' version done.

4  Hat loosely based on celtic in Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller by Kick on: March 31, 2008 11:52:44 AM
I emphasis the loosely. I did not do double knitting and did not do the design, but wanted to give credit where it was due.

So I used a black cashmere/acrylic and a gray acrylic. On the gray stripe I put the letters PJ in seed stitch, but it is a little messed up and hard to see. It was the first time I've tried DPN, so I'm astonished that the end result was so nice!

I made it for my husband but he wasn't available to model it so I stuck it on my son's melon. I think he likes it!

5  windy city scarf in Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller by Kick on: March 21, 2008 11:38:34 AM
Here is my windy city scarf.

Question about it: I could not get the second strand around the keyhole to stay tight. I weaved in the ends, should I have knotted them or woven them in differently?
