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

34  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.

calliemae, your Gotham City is so imaginative!

kbrison, beautiful blocks.

lady4feet, your Boondock Saints wall hanging is absolutely magnificent.

Most of my projects are for craft fairs, and i've needed to buy materials... but i'm using everything, so at least i'm not adding to my stash. But i have made a few things from stash.

We just found out my sister is going to have another boy, so i made him a hat to match his older brother's.

My oldest nephew (the big brother) is almost 2, and i've been wanting for so long to craft with him. I decided to make a simple little plush doll that he could help me stitch up and stuff. He didn't help much with the stitching (which is fine), but he was more than happy to stuff!
Here's Waffle (named after his favorite food):

And here he is with Waffle:

I don't know if i've posted this here yet, and i made it before September, but it fits with the theme! Sweet!

Neither of these hats are bound off yet, but they're pretty much finished.

My friends are having a baby. The mom is obsessed with Bane (Batman supervillain).

Added a couple more hats.

I finished knitting this in February, but i wasn't satisfied, so i didn't finish it. I finally decided to get over it.

And a bonus of my nephew modeling before it was finished:

I call this Hawk Candy (the pattern is called Neck Candy, and it's in Seahawk-ish colors):

I've had this Seahawks hat done since February, but i finally wove in the ends recently. I wasn't really happy with the lettering (and it took a fair bit of trial and error to get it how it is), which is why it sat unfinished for so long, but i decided to just get over it and hope somebody would be okay with it.:

Mariners coffee cozy:

What can i say? I love my teams. Smiley
