1  Embroidered "Moccasins" in Knitting: Completed Projects by aduaidh on: July 24, 2007 06:34:22 PM
I've been craving moccasins, so I made my own. I made sure these are sturdy enough to brave the outdoors.

Felted like crazy and then embroidered free-hand. The soles are recycled from busted slippers.

And on my feet:

They're extremely comfy and warm. Which is good, since I'll be wearing them in Vermont. Although, once the snow hits, I think I'll have to switch to real snow boots. boo Tongue

Rainbow yarn!
Dyed in late March- I began the enormous task of cleaning my room today and finally twisted these babies into hanks.
Tools: garage sale found fingering weight yarn, No-name frosting dye, a vat of vinegar, a lot of glass bowls, and the microwave.

I think now's the time to try my first pair of socks.  Kiss

Knit September, sewn together yesterday...

I am a much better knitter now, but I still love my franken-dangly.

4  Not Quite Russian Winter in Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller by aduaidh on: August 31, 2005 08:43:09 AM

I used Patons Carmen in Chocolate and some dark red acrylic (Red Heart?). The hat isn't as red as the pictures: the flash picked up on the acrylic, although the carmen yarn seems to cover it nicely in reality.
I managed to make it only using straight needles- I had to put some of the stitches on a holder for the first few rows of the bonnet curve. Annoying... but fun.

5  Earflap Hat in Knitting: Completed Projects by aduaidh on: August 31, 2005 08:35:35 AM
I used Noro Kureyon, several hat patterns as guidelines, and a minimal amount of math:

(Mandatory animal pose)

Two questions:
1. pompom on top or not?
2. Would blocking help the curling of the earflaps? What else could I do?

And this thing I knitted up quickly- I wanted a long scarf:

I didn't want to put on a bra, so I used a bear model.  Grin

The End.

6  My head is too small!! Hat help. in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by aduaidh on: August 19, 2005 11:48:34 AM

My hat huggers aviator cap is too big. I almost cried when I put it on. It's made of acrylic, so I can't really shrink it. I was thinking of maybe threading yarn through the bottom and making a tie?

Any suggestions?  Cry

7  Freeform Monster Hat in Knitting: Completed Projects by aduaidh on: August 19, 2005 11:38:55 AM
So, this whole process started out with a conversation I had with a friend. I was telling her how my obsession with knitting was using up time I should be using to work on my art portfolio. I said I didn't think I could defend my knitting as a work of art if all I did was follow patterns to make accessories for myself. It was then that it first clicked, although I did not feel up for the challenge quite yet.
More recently, I was searching for hat patterns. I had all these ideas for hats I wanted to wear, but I was afraid to make my own patterns. It was then that I came across quite a few examples of freeform crochet/knitting. I was totally inspired to try this method out.
So, this is my first experiment. I used mohair (black) and a nylon pink shift which I ripped up.




And there are i-cord ties on each side, but I didn't get a good picture of them.
I love this hat. Very much. And, best of all, I am proud to put a picture of it in my portfolio.
I plan on making more wild hats later on, once I get the hang of it.

8  Finally! Babies! in Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller by aduaidh on: February 16, 2005 04:52:43 PM
You have no idea how much I wanted a baby to knit for.

My neighbors' daughter had twin girls three days ago, so I made these:

I'm not a crocheter, so I don't know if I did the straps correctly.  Embarrassed

These are going to be shipped off to Germany tomorrow.

9  Flowers and old FOs in Knitting: Completed Projects by aduaidh on: January 31, 2005 01:04:10 PM

 My mum found some 100% angora at a garage sale, but there wasn't enough to make anything with substance. So, I'm making myself a bouquet. I used the pattern from the "headhuggers" in SnB Nation.

And these are from a month or two ago, when I was obsessed with bag-making:

As soon as I get my Lamb's Pride, I'm making the candy stripes bag from SnB Nation. <3

10  Heart in Knitting: Completed Projects by aduaidh on: January 26, 2005 04:46:10 PM
Heart from Knitty.com:

And now I'm covered in white chenille fluff. As a semi-beginner, knitting this supposedly easy scarf in chenille was not such a smart move. I have two skeins left, and I won't be touching them any time soon.
Argh. Sleep.
