1  Completed Green afghan! (i am stupid and posted this into the crochet forum!) in Knitting: Completed Projects by Frankie The Gal on: July 08, 2005 07:17:51 PM
This was made with alpacca, rapunzel, and a wool slub. Size 17 needles, 91 stitches across (garter stitch) and i just alternated each row with the different yarns. It's about 6 feet long, and I would say about 4 feet across! It took over 75 hours to knit, but the different textures of yarn kept it interesting!

Here it is all stretched out (some of it is behind the couch):


And here it is resting on its chair:

3  scarf made with yarn I spun and yarn from mypapercrane.com (image heavy!) in Knitting: Completed Projects by Frankie The Gal on: May 26, 2005 11:47:38 AM
So, I purchased a skein of yarn from the lovely www.mypapercrane.com but didn't' have enough to make a lengthy scarf, so - I decided to teach myself how to spin!
The scarf is insanely long and knit in just a simple garter stitch with 17 needles.

I spun the yarn in about 15 yard sections, because I was toooo excited to knit it up and couldn't wait for the entire bag of fiber to be spun to begin! (this is just a bad scan of the yarn)


This is a photo of the scarf in progress


A photo of me wearing the scarf (such an awkward photo) I think it's wrapped around my neck two or three times


And lastly, the scarf wrapped around my head! (you can see the details of the yarn a bit better)

4  eeep! a mouse! (now with whiskers!) in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Frankie The Gal on: May 26, 2005 11:16:22 AM
before:


and after:


The person I made the mouse for was the deciding factor on whether or not the whiskers were yarn or fishing line. But I think I'd like to try and make a few more and play around with the whiskers and use different types of materials.

oh and here's an in action shot of my sister's cat playing with him!

5  plush television set in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Frankie The Gal on: May 26, 2005 06:16:17 AM
Hi!
I've never posted anything on the boards before, so I'm not sure I'm going about this correctly (if I'm not let me know!)
But, here is a stuffed television set I made for a friend a few months ago. The body is made up of fleece, the face and bow are felt, and the antennas are straws sewn under felt! She even comes with a power plug! I'm hoping to make more for a punk rock flea market in different sizes with different emotions and bows.
