1  Re: 2016 Annual DeStash-Along in Craftalongs by bananaleg on: July 14, 2016 03:46:49 PM
I too dislike repair work and there is a whole bag full of that sort of thing from my family, the dirty rats. When people know you sew they assume you will be thrilled to fix their broken zips and torn pockets and hem all the things Tongue.
Same. I have to be in the mood to hem and fix, and i just don't find myself in that mood very often...

I suppose i should finally post something, huh?
Technically, i crocheted this last year (almost exactly a year ago), but then it sat in my room for a year. I finally wove the ends in last week, and it's been adopted as the house Olympics lap blanket (you know, at night, or when the a/c is blasting), so i'm considering it a 2016 destash. My sister bought a skein (RHSS) of each of these colors several years ago, and used a very, very small amount of each, then gave me the rest. Since it's all the colors of the Olympic rings, i decided to use them to make a small blanket (in the order of the Olympic rings).

I've made over 40 hats so far this year. (I think i might really have a problem.) Most of them from stash. But since i've used so much stash, i've run out of all the colors i need and have had to replace a few...

Anyway, here are some highlights. (And if you care to check out the rest: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=442480.msg5365639#msg5365639 )

bananaleg your hats are amazing ,love the duke silver hat

Got a few more photographed.

Birthday present for my nephew, who, before learning to speak, would only screech.

I've been playing a lot with crown shaping and cables.

I've had requests for University of Washington hats, and i finally got around to trying one out.

I have dreams of a whole art deco beanie line.

Okay, here's what i have photographed.

Go Cougs for my brother's girlfriend.

Duke Silver, my latest Parks & Rec-themed hat. It even has saxophones around the back.

Improvised diamond design.

Packers Sideline Beanie.

My brother's friend recently took over a local children's theater, and she asked me to make them some hats. It's called Neverland Theater, and their logo is Peter Pan flying with a big crescent moon.

Originally wanted this for myself, but it's a little too small, and perfect for my nephew. It's the rebel alliance starbird from Star Wars, and i used duplicate stitch.

Tacoma used to have a soccer team, years ago, and they came back last year! It's pretty exciting. They're called the Tacoma Stars, and i'm really happy that they're sticking with the original colors and logo, and everything.

I'm still not confident enough in my pattern-writing abilities to publish this pattern, so instead i just keep knitting them myself. I think i've knit 3 so far this year, but i still need better photos.

My cousin just had a baby named Spencer.

Newest design. Still trying to name it. And write the pattern for other people. The first 2 are slouchy, the second 2 are snug beanies.

Hey, remember SPOOPY? I don't know if it's still a thing, but i had the itch to make some Halloween stuff this year, and as i was sketching out some ideas, SPOOPY popped into my head and wouldn't leave.

8  Western Vikings Beanie in Knitting: Completed Projects by bananaleg on: September 15, 2015 11:40:17 PM
A friend recently graduated from high school and will be heading to Western Washington University this week. And i like giving gifts (especially when they're completely unexpected), so i decided to knit her a hat.

I looked up the school colors because although i have numerous friends who have gone there, i've never known what the official colors are, and i'm kind of a stickler about that kind of thing... but there were probably 10 different (random) "official" colors listed on different sites, and really the only colors you'll find on any of the school apparel are navy, grey, black, and white. So i ditched the idea of trying to do the school logo (which is either a minimalist mountain or creepy viking), and copied one of the beanies from the online store.

She was very surprised and put it on immediately. I hope it will get a lot of use this fall/winter.

9  Seahawks 2015 Sideline Beanie in Knitting: Completed Projects by bananaleg on: September 15, 2015 11:06:29 PM

While watching the first Seahawks preseason game, i noticed one player on the sidelines wearing the newest sideline beanie. Almost immediately after seeing it, i couldn't remember which color went where. I didn't take a picture of the screen. I coudn't find ANY pictures of it on the interwebs. I had to wait an entire week for the next preseason game and hope the weather would be cool enough for somebody to be wearing one so i could make my own. And it was, and Richard Sherman was! So i took a picture and finished the hat i was working on so i could cast on this one.

My friend, who already owns 2 of my Seahawks hats, requested a matching pair for her and her daughter.

Now my dad wants one.
