Does anyone know of any knitting circles in San Diego?  I just moved to La Jolla, and I need to find some crafty ladies to knit with.  Yarn store recommendations would also be awesome.

Can I get on the email list for this?  I just moved to San Diego, and I'm looking for fellow crafty types.

I just moved to SD yesterday, and I need crafty pals!  I'm especially looking for a knitting circle.

Also - SoComfyHere - I would love to see a photo of your SquiPod!  It's so funny that you knit it at the same gauge as mine.

Yeah, it is from my hair.  It's completely accidental - but people ask me about it all the time.  I end up turning tons of things pink, I'm just sort of used to it.

Back

I made this out of a couple of pairs of old jeans.  I made a basic reconstructed jean skirt, and then pinned a ruffle together out of left-over denim from the legs.  I haven't used my sewing maching in forever, and I'm not so good with the "measuring" or "straight lines" so I'm really excited about how this turned out.

And here is another jean skirt I made, sans ruffle.

Yarn: Brown Sheep Nature Spun, color 115 Bit of Blue, less than one skein.  Tiny bit of misc black sport weight yarn for eyes.

Needles: Size 4 dpns

Gauge: 5 stitches per inch

Pattern:

Body:
Cast on 32 st.  Join for knitting in the round.  Knit 5 inches of stockinette.

Head:
One first round, bind off 16 stitches the stitches on needles 3 & 4.  On  the next round, Cast on 16 stitches to replace the stitches you just bound off.

Switch to the following decrease pattern:

Rnd 1 Needle 1 k1, k2tog, knit to end of needle
     Needle 2 knit to last 3 stitches, ssk, k 1
     Needle 3 k1, k2tog, knit to end of needle
     Needle 4 - knit to last 3 stitches, ssk, k 1

Rnd 2 knit

Repeat rounds 1 and 2 until 8 stitches remain.  Bind off in purl.

Back flap:
Pick up 16 st above where you cast off for the head.  Knit in stockinette for 2 inches.  Bind off.

Tentacles:
Sew together the cast-on edge of the body, using back stitch.  Mark with safety pins 4 evenly spaced places on both the back and the front for the legs (8 places total).  At each marker, pick up three stitches and work in I-cord for 2 inches.

Eyes:  
For the eyes, I placed the cozy on my iPod, marked the center of the front, and then spaced the eyes so they were each two stitches out from the center.  I duplicate stitched the eyes using the black yarn.  Here is the pattern:

    X   
X   X   X
X   X   X

Finishing:

Using sewing thread, sew a snap on the back of the cozy and the wrong side of the back flap, so the cozy can be snapped shut.

*************

I hope people like it!  Please feel free to ask if you have questions about the pattern, and if anyone makes it, I would love to see pictures of how it turns out.

Abinka - Crowyhead from Phillyknitters just knit that Camisole, you should ask her about it.

That's beautiful!  Just curious, what kind of needles did you use?  (Bamboo, metal, casein, etc?)  I would be worried about tiny wood needles snapping.
