1  Wickerware Socks in Knitting: Completed Projects by sapphireblue on: September 02, 2011 01:55:09 PM

I wish I had a better picture of these socks, but my computer is on the blink. 

Pattern:  Wickerware Socks

Needles:  Size 1 for cuff, Size 2 for the rest.

Yarn:  Lonesome Stone Alpaca, Mountain Feet

Notes:  The pattern is really simple to remember.  The only modification I would have made is to use size 0 and 1 needles instead.  I love the yarn. It was a little pricey, but worth it. I have enough left over for a pair of baby sock.  I like how they turned out.

2  Corona Hoodie in Knitting: Completed Projects by sapphireblue on: March 09, 2011 09:46:49 AM

Corona Hoodie

Pattern: Corona by Canary Knits http://canaryknits.blogspot.com/2008/06/complete-corona.html
Made for: My Daughter
Size: Small
Needle size: US 8 (5 mm)
Yarn: Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece

Comments: This is a free patternbonus! I like that its knit in the round, and I especially love the cabled detail around the hood. The pattern called for an 11 inch hood, but I made a 10 inch hood. It was plenty long enough. If I were to make this again, I think I would make it about 2 inches longer and started the V for the hood up higher. I do love how it turned out. My daughter wears it all the time which is the biggest form of flattery.

It took me five months to complete this, but it's because I was dividing time between a full-time job and a new baby.

4  Earflap Hat in Knitting: Completed Projects by sapphireblue on: January 25, 2011 02:21:14 PM

I haven't posted in a while, so here something I completed over the holidays.  I found this as a free pattern from my bootee knits.

The hat was larger than I thought once I got started so I went from medium to small.  I knitted on a size 5, but I kinda wish I would have gone with size 4.  All in all, love the pattern and how it seamlessly incorporates the earflaps.

5  Rib Knit Socks in Knitting: Completed Projects by sapphireblue on: December 10, 2009 07:51:57 AM

Project Details

Pattern: Ann Norling basic sock pattern

Yarn: Austerman Step Sock Yarn

Needle: dpn in U.S. size 2

Size: 13 mens

Started: 11/06/2009

Completed: 12/09/2009

Comments: I have never made a sock, so this is new to me, but now that I know it's this easy, I will definitely do it again. I think the only modification I would make is to use a size 1 needle. The size 2 left the ribbing on the calf a little loose. The sock yarn was $18, but it's well worth it. I was nervous about having enough, but I had plenty to make both socks in a men's size 13.

6  Completed Baby Sweater in Knitting: Completed Projects by sapphireblue on: March 25, 2009 10:33:38 AM
I'm sorry I haven't posted in a while.  I was off on medical leave from having gall bladder surgery, so I was finally able to complete a project.  This is my first attempt at cables.  I got the pattern online from the Lion Brand Website.  However, I used Tahki Cotton Classics.

7  Knit Hat in Knitting: Completed Projects by sapphireblue on: October 24, 2008 10:02:00 AM
I tried to post this earlier, but I messed up.  I finally completed this last night.  It took a month, but I am slow anyway.  I found this pattern on Ravelry, but a very talented young lady.  Unfortunately I left the pattern at home.  I will post the link to the pdf when I get home. I have it on my home pc.

Here's my latest update.  I'm a bit of a slow knitter.

Hello!  I got started.  This is what I have so far.  I'm a little slow.

10  Jeans Get New Life in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by sapphireblue on: September 08, 2008 07:22:58 AM
Hi!  This was my daughter's old jeans that had a hole in the knee.  I was also sewing a shirt at the same time that had a ruffle on it.  I didn't like how the shirt was turning out.  I went ahead and combined the two.
