anna, that pillowcase is so cute.

lady, i'm glad i could bring you a smile when you weren't feeling well. That turtle scarf is adorable. Paper bag holder. What a great idea.

As usual, i've been slacking on picture taking. But here's some stuff.

My brother started pharmacy school this fall, and these are his new college colors (Washington State University).

A friend of a friend needed a baby hat.

An old friend ordered some wristers from me, and i sent her a couple extras. We really bonded when we took German together, so i made her a German flag stocking ornament.

And a little hedgehog because one of the stories we read was Peter Igel in der Luft, about a hedgehog on a hot air balloon ride.

Pumpkin coffee sleeve.

This cowl was finished last year, with the greens and a cream, but i decided against the cream and tore it out. So, the greens just sat in a drawer until i was organizing last week and saw that red right next to it, and they just looked perfect together.

I've been making a bunch of hats like this one, with the oatmeal base and replacing the purple with different colors. This is the only one i have a picture of so far.

I was looking for interesting new cables, saw this one, and needed to knit it immediately.

32  Pug Coffee Sleeve in Crochet: Completed Projects by bananaleg on: November 24, 2014 09:15:09 PM
One of my high school teachers has become a good friend, and she loves pugs. She jokingly asked me one day when i was going to make her a pug coffee sleeve. I had actually been planning on giving it a shot (only for her as i don't usually do well with fiddly bits). So, i looked at a couple pictures (i could only find two anywhere on the interwebs) and set about crocheting a pug sleeve.

I mean, look at that tail.

And then i noticed that if you slide the sleeve down so the little legs are touching the counter, and then scoot the cup, it looks like the pug is walking. So i made a gif because i couldn't stop laughing, and i needed to share it.

A pair of mismatched kid wristers:

Adult autumn wristers:

Some Halloween coffee sleeves: 2 Frankie, 2 candy corn, 1 candy corn striper, 1 ghost, 1 pumpkin:

A ton of other coffee sleeves (many of which have been sitting in a box, waiting to be taken out for pictures): Packers, hair stylist shears, camo, spring colors, a sort of experiment, some plain ones waiting for possible personalization:

Some iced coffee cozies:

And my favorite sleeves: Sally and Jack (A Nightmare Before Christmas), and a pug (a request from an old friend. not stoked about the snout, need to rethink the mouth):

And oh my gosh, if you don't slide the pug all the way up, the legs touch. And it made me laugh, so i made a little gif.

I did a vendor show on Saturday, and while there, a woman liked the baby pompom hat, but wanted a newborn size. So i made her one.

I really dig the idea of a destash party!

always, i love how you're using up that yarn.

My brother-in-law needed a quick baby shower gift for a coworker. So this is how i spent last night:

I didn't have enough brown, so i went snooping in my stash and found another little ball, leaving just a small bit left after finishing the hat and the brown feather.
The baby is due around Thanksgiving, so i hope he gets a chance to wear this before turkeys are out. Wink

38  The Accidental Slouch, Or How I Knit Winding Road Beanie With The Wrong Yarn in Knitting: Completed Projects by bananaleg on: September 28, 2014 07:25:24 PM

There was a post going around tumblr, asking for 4 test knitters: 3 for shawls, and 1 for a hat. The hat was gorgeous, and i was lucky enough to be the first person to email her.

I picked out my yarn, bought the needles i didn't have (size 4s). I do most of my knitting and crocheting with worsted weight yarn. Sometimes bulky. And sometimes sock yarn. I don't usually grab dk or sport. And although i know about yarn weights, when i was picking out my yarn, i thought for sure that dk was the same as sport.

I started knitting. It looked fantastic and was knitting up so quickly. Then i realized i was halfway done and to get the right shape, i should have already started decreasing. I thought, "my gauge must be super off."

Then, as i was emailing Francoise (the designer), it hit me. DK. Not SPORT.

So, although this should have been a head-hugging beanie, it is now The Accidental Slouch.

As you can see, it's not super slouchy. But to be honest, this is exactly how i prefer my slouch.

Pattern name: Winding Road Beanie, by Francoise Danoy
Yarn used: Patons Classic Wool DK Superwash, a little over 1 1/2 skeins
Needles: US 4 16" circulars, US 6 16" circulars and DPNs

I was a test knitter for this hat. It hasn't been published yet, but it's called Kyokuro Boushi by Francoise Danoy, also known as ArohaKnits on ravelry.

Cheesy what a cute/scary hat

I agree! I guess as long as it doesn't freak out the baby, it's perfect!

Haha! I have a feeling the baby will be born desensitized to Bane.

that1girl, i love the look of back loop sc. And the colors you used are perfect together.

crafty, aren't built-in bow hats adorable??

I needed a quick project, so i made this baby hat:

Note the back loop sc brim. Smiley
Now i'm working on another one for my cousin's baby.
