1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / To(te) Boldly Go on: February 24, 2014 04:49:32 PM
When i saw this fabric, i really wanted it. Luckily, i had a coupon for 60% off, and some sweet space fabric and strap material (blanking on what that's called) in my stash. I haven't sewn much lately, so i wanted a quick, easy project.

I didn't add any pockets, but i think it will be ideal as a project bag, or maybe even for some small farmers market finds.

And it's reversible. Who doesn't love reversible?

 

 

 
2  CRAFTING FOR GOOD AND NOT EVIL / Crafty Charitable/Social Causes / Good Samaritan Bags on: February 24, 2014 04:14:32 PM
My mom recently joined a Good Samaritan group at church, and their latest project is putting together sort of care bags, i guess you could call them. They were looking for inexpensive bags to fill, so i pulled out my little fabric stash.




3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / 1-Cable Hats on: February 19, 2014 05:10:06 PM
Hats with a ton of cables are pretty, but i kind of love a hat with only one cable.

This one was knit with some handdyed yarn i got from pinkleo in a swap a while back. I love how it looks knit up!


This is knit from Patons ColorWul. Such a fun colorway.

I knit a Seahawks color striped hat, but what i really wanted was one of their sideline knit hats.

This is my attempt:

5  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / My New Go-To Treadmill Knits on: February 19, 2014 04:52:24 PM
I find it much easier to get through walking on the treadmill if i have something in my hands. Especially something easy.

6  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Garter Stitch Hats on: February 19, 2014 04:46:47 PM
I mentioned a couple posts back that January was a very garter stitch month for me... Here are a few of the other garter stitch hats i made in January.


I've had the purple and green for probably almost 3 years now. I love them together and couldn't find that right project for them. But i'm pretty happy with this.

7  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Chunky Tweed Beanies on: February 19, 2014 04:35:25 PM
A couple years ago, i walked into Michaels and there was some thick and thin yarn, which i'd never seen, on sale. It's called Horizon Tweed, but it's discontinued. I chose two colorways and bought 2 skeins of each.

This last November, i still had all 4 skeins. Hats are my favorite things to make, so i gave that a shot.

I cast on with size US 10 1/2 needles, and after a few rounds switched to US 11s.
Super warm. Super comfy.
8  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Rikke Hats on: February 19, 2014 04:17:34 PM
I was really into garter stitch throughout January. Still am, but it's quieted down a bit.

So i made these Rikke Hats, by Sarah Young.

Although I do have US 7s, i do not have US 4s. So, instead i decreased the stitch count a bit and i think i used US 6s and US 9s.







It's a nice, easy pattern. I would recommend it.
9  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Baby Pea Pod on: June 25, 2013 09:50:47 PM
Since long before my brother and sister-in-law had a baby, they referred to their future child as Sweet Pea. Naturally their baby needed a pea pod cocoon.

I used a pattern from Ruby Knits, with some slight alterations... which i can't remember anymore.

Oh, but instead of US15 needles, i used US11, as that is what i had... But somehow i hit her gauge, so it worked.
10  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Baby Yoda on: June 25, 2013 09:32:31 PM
For my nephew's 8-month hat, my sister asked for Yoda. A Father's Day surprise for my brother-in-law, a huge Star Wars fan.
