1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / My turn for pumpkins on: October 08, 2007 08:18:23 PM
After seeing these http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=195419.0  I *had* to use up my scraps.  Soooo easy and QUICK!!! 



http://www.curlypurly.com/pumpkin.html

 For the gourd, I just decreased to 3 sts and did about an inch in I-cord and really pulled tight through it to make it a little more bumpy and inconsistant.  The solid orange is cascade 220, the flecked orange is an Ella Rae cotton, and the gourd is Patagonia cotton.  I just need to add sticks to the pumpkins for stems Wink
2  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Cobblestone Pullover anyone? IK Fall '07 on: October 08, 2007 10:37:39 AM
I started this already, but would love for someone else to join me so I can get my tush in gear.  I'm using Cascade 220 Heathers color 9406 and size 8 addis.

Here's the bonus photo from the web http://www.interweaveknits.com/galleries/bonus/fall2007/flood.asp
And here's my progress
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / A hat for Eiley ~ now w/pattern on: October 07, 2007 10:55:36 AM
My daughter Eiley requested a purple hat.  I didn't want it to be the typical run of the mill hat, but I also didn't want it to be too challenging that I'd never finish it.  So, I "designed" an old skool ski hat like my Grampy wore way back when.  I used Cascade 220 Quattro and size 8 16" Addis and size 8 DPNs.  Eiley loves it Wink even if it's close to 90 today and she's wearing a Speedo LOL

4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / I made a Wicked in 1.5 hrs! on: October 05, 2007 03:44:00 PM
Okay, so it's a mini Wicked, but a Wicked nonetheless.  I used Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino color 002 and size 3 DPNs.  I CO 36 sts and worked as for the real Wicked, but downsized everything.  I didn't do the pocket b/c I really didn't want to do the math for it LOL  The best part?  It literally took 1.5 hours from start to finish even figuring out the sorta math I did.  I'm also not pleased that I should have done more cable repeats for the actual "cable" to show up. . . Oh well.
