1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Scary Ski Mask on: February 21, 2007 02:40:00 AM
Yay! My first challenge Cheesy

I first saw this mask right here on Craftster. As soon as I saw it, I had to make it Smiley I've needed a reason to get it out and take pictures Smiley What better reason than a challenge?

I used a pattern from a vintage McCall's Needlework magazine. The pattern is for a child size mask, so I just used a thicker yarn and followed the pattern. The only thing I changed was the hair color and style. I used tassels instead of pompoms.
Please don't have nightmares because of it, lol.


2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Hat Goodness (image heavy, dial up users beware) on: January 06, 2006 12:41:39 PM

This hat makes me think of a strawberry. The pattern is from an older Cast On and the yarn is Cascade 220.


This is DH's hat. I used the frivol hat pattern and Knitpick's Wool of the Andes or merino, I can't remember. It has been dubbed "Th Birthday Cake."


I saved the best for last. This is my favorite to date. I based it off a free pattern on Elann and is a mix of Paton's and Knitpick wool. There are no charts for the fair isle with the pattern, so I had to make my own. I also cheated by making the the top flat so I wouldn't have to make new charts for the lower stitch counts. The ribbon is actually covering up a mistake. I was going to make a picot edge around the bottom of the hat, but changed my mind after I was unwilling to rip it all out. So, to cover up the mistake, I threaded a ribbon through.

Hope everyone had a good holiday season. I look forward to more knitted gift pictures.

I finally conquered this pattern. I tried to make this hat when I first started knitting, and it was out of my league with all the wrap and turns. So a few years later, it caught my eye again, and here she is complete. I jazzed it up a bit with a crocheted edge and a couple flowers so it didn't look like an epilepsy helmet. (When I put it on without embellishments, I put it on and I immediately thought of Garden State.) Hope you like it. Grin

5  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Who's that babe? on: September 27, 2005 10:26:18 PM
I saw the book Knitted Babes and had to have it and of course make something from it. As soon as I got home with the book, I casted on. Now, three days later, I have this:



Her dress is pretty blah, but I couldn't show her off naked, so I whipped this up.  I have yet to make any shoes for her spaghetti feet, but that time will come. I can't wait to make her some more clothes and accesories. She was a snap to make, and I would highly recommend this book, these girls are too cute. I hope others have made/are making babes and will post them. I saw the knit along, but didn't join cause I churned her out so quick. I am still up in the air about a name, but Sassafrass may be it.
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / I shall call him Spanky... on: September 15, 2005 04:21:46 AM
Here is my orangutan that I started almost a year ago, then tossed him aside. Tons of rows of garter stitch on US3 needles lost my interest quickly. I recently regained interest in him and finished it quickly. The pattern is from Kath Dalmeny's World of Knitted Toys . Maybe Spanky and Mr. Dangly are related somehow? Hope you like him. Thanks for looking.

 
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Another hat, will it ever end? on: September 14, 2005 01:52:49 AM
Here is a pair of hats I made for a husband and wife. No pattern was used for either, I just winged them and whatever happened, happened. The pics are pretty bad, but that's what happens when you take the pics all by your lonesome.I know I put the red, white, and blue one up in another post, but ehh, what the heck. Thanks for looking.

8  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Patriotic hat on: August 02, 2005 11:41:21 PM
This hat started off kind of ugly, but then it grew into something else. I am not so good at color work, so I decided to practice, and this is what was born. Enjoy!


9  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Baby Shower Madness (Lots of pictures) on: May 28, 2005 03:37:45 AM
Because of the double baby shower I have coming up this weekend, it's been a baby knitting frenzy. The 2 preggo ladies are getting one ensemble each. One knows she's having a girl (she gets the purple set) and the other is having a suprise baby (she gets the mix match set). Hope you like them. I am proud and am so relieved I am done. Enjoy!






The red hat is the Lil' Devil hat which I found the pattern free online. It's made out of TLC acrylic yarn. The tiny green socks are Knit Picks alpaca cloud or shimmer, I can't remember which. The pattern is from the latest issue of Interweave Knits. The purple set is a Dale of Norway pattern and is made out of Sirdar's Snuggly. I look forward to your comments!
