21  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Anyone knows of a nice Christmas Tree Skirt pattern? on: June 08, 2005 06:34:12 PM
I'm trying to start some christmas knitting and thought a tree skirt would be nice to cover up the bare legs of my christmas tree.  Anyone knows of a nice pattern?
22  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Any nice Christmas ornament patterns to share? on: June 02, 2005 02:21:10 AM
Was just thinking about starting with some ornament knitting before I get into the mood of knitting Christmas gifts.

Anyone has any free patterns for christmas ornaments or deco to share?
23  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Stash busting Caterpillar (With Tutorial) on: May 04, 2005 06:26:54 PM
I was in a stash busting mood and thought of making some toys out of it, and here it is!  I enjoy doing it and I think I'll make a few more for some kids.




It has got legs too, but I think they are too tiny...



OK, here's the tutorial:
Cast on 14 sts
Row 1: Increase (K1 f&b) into every sts  [now 28 sts]
Row 2 and every even number row: purl
Row 3: *knit 1 st, Increase (k1 f&b) 1 st* [now 42 sts)
Follow stockinette pattern for another 25 rows
Row 29: *k1, k2tog* [now 28 sts]
Row 31: k2tog till end [now 14 sts]
Do not cast off.  Join another color and follow pattern from row 1

For antena and legs, I've followed the pattern exactly from here:

24  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / A vest for nephew, JS on: May 03, 2005 06:29:45 PM
I knitted a little vest during the weekend for our little nephew, JS.  I like the yarn because it looks a bit like fair isle.  Too bad I didn't get to take photo of him wearing it.

This is a Sirdar pattern that I bought in our LYS. 



25  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Duck Hand Puppet (with tutorial) on: April 19, 2005 06:57:26 PM
Upon completing the puppy hand puppet http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=32359.0, I wanted to improvise the pattern into other animals...


Duck!





I'm going to start a hand puppet zoo.  What else can I turn them to?
26  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Strawberries, tomatoes and Chilli (with tutorial) on: April 17, 2005 08:14:13 PM
I've stuffed tea leaves inside them and intend to leave it in the fridge to absorb the odours.  Ok, I know there's not enough and I need to make a dozens more...

The strawberries were a bit small, so I decided to improvise them into chilli and tomatoes too.  I like the tomatoes best!  What ya think?

28  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Ruffles!! (Not from Scarf Style) on: April 06, 2005 08:22:43 PM
I saw this thread from http://knittersreview.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=27751 and like the scarf so much.  Couldn't help it but cast on to try it out.  It is indeed a very interesting journey...  We call it Rachel's Ruffles.


29  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Cool Crochet Cardholder on: March 13, 2005 06:32:47 PM
Here it is!  My first try in crochet after not touching it for more than 10 yrs.

Had wanted to use it just like a normal card case, but later found that it's cooler to attach to a lengthyard... 

30  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / What should I call this? on: March 06, 2005 09:42:43 PM
Finally, something for myself which I had wanted to knit long ago...  Self designed.  Basically, it's just a pcs of rectangular/square piece, folded into half, and the sides sewn up to create a sleeve.

So what should I call this?  shrug?  shawl?  shoulder warmer?
