1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Ultra Nerdy T-shirts on: November 18, 2005 09:01:49 PM


Dijkstra and Alan Turing are both old school computer scientists.  (I'm sort of obsessed with both of them.)  Since I'm a computer science graduate student, I figured I needed some super-ultra-nerdy t-shirts, and iron-on letters got the job done.
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Knit Robot on: November 03, 2005 10:24:23 PM

I knit this with a pattern from the Jess Hutch booklet: "http://www.jesshutch.com/booklet.html"

  I used left over Rowan Kid Classic and size five needles.  I'm a graduate student doing work with social robotics, so I thought that this guy was just the thing I needed hanging out in my office.

Pictures of him having an adventure with my cat are here:
3  California / California: South / Knitting Group in San Diego on: August 24, 2005 06:36:18 PM
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.
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Jean Skirt with RUFFLE! on: July 02, 2005 03:11:08 PM

Close up


Not so close up


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.
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / SquiPod iPod Cozy - with TUTORIAL/PATTERN on: June 24, 2005 01:38:30 PM


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


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

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.

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.

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


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.
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Jelly Bean Socks on: March 07, 2005 08:07:06 PM


I made these socks using Lion Brand Magic Stripe in Jellybean, and a pattern from The Knitters Handy Book of Patterns.  I love how the stripes turned out!
7  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Spiderweb Capelet - HELP! on: December 09, 2004 08:00:14 PM
I'm trying to make the Spiderweb Capelet, and I'm totally mystified by the 4th row.  What do I do when it says "sl2 purlwise, k2tog, pass 2 slipped sts over, K1 without dropping st off needle, yo, p1 without dropping st of needle, yo, k1 without dropping st of needle, yo, p1 and drop st off needle"?  Am I just passing the slipped stitches over the k2tog stitches?  Or am I passing them over all the sts?  When it says "K1 without dropping," does that mean I leave the stitch I just knit on the left needle?  Do I then reknit into that stitch, or knit the next stitch? 
8  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / My Under The Hoodie on: November 25, 2004 10:45:41 PM

I just finished Under the Hoodie.  It took me like, four months, but it is definitely my favorite sweater ever.
