11  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.
12  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.
13  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.

 

 
14  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Loki-inspired Coffee Sleeve on: June 25, 2013 09:14:34 PM
I had these colors lying around after making a leprechaun hat for my nephew, and it brought Loki to mind. So naturally my mind went to coffee. And coffee sleeves. Not really. I just didn't have enough to make anything else.

 
 
 

I even added his cape. But i sewed it down, so it wouldn't get in the way.

Does anybody else see Loki in this, or is it just me?
15  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Chunky Bow-ish Cowl on: February 18, 2013 11:10:53 PM
I wanted to make something for a friend, who recently went to cold, cold Chicago. Found these colors in my stash, and man do they go well together.

 

This is actually the second one i made. After i sent hers off, i had to make one for myself.

 
 
16  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Baby Leprechaun Top Hat on: February 18, 2013 10:55:53 PM
I make hats for my nephew's monthly pictures. Here's his 5-month/March hat. My favorite so far.

 
17  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies / Painted Onesies on: February 18, 2013 10:49:09 PM
I wasn't sure where to post these, but i guess this place is as good any...? If it would fit better elsewhere, please let me know.

My sister asks me to paint onesies for my nephew for major holidays. You know, "my 1st Christmas", "my first New Year"... A few days before Valentine's Day, she asked for a Valentine onesie. So i got a 5-pack, and here's what i came up with.

 
Not my greatest penmanship, but it had to do.

 
Text to my sister: I'm going to make a "kiss me I'm Irish" one unless you have a better idea.
My sister: But he's not Irish.
(Actually, we are part Irish.)

 
I probably should have made an Easter one before skipping to April, but i really, really wanted to make a rainy one. April is my favorite.

 
Aw, aren't they cute together?
 
This is my other favorite. Nothing to do with holidays or months, just Star Wars. My brother-in-law is a Star Wars fan. My nephew is named Luke. I tend to call him Wukie because i sing to him a lot... And wookiee is spelled with 2 e's, so... Wukiee. Clever, eh?
 
18  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / TARDIS-inspired Bomber on: December 31, 2012 09:56:28 PM
I decided to make myself a TARDIS hat. It was going to be really literal. POLICE BOX plastered across my forehead. A white bit on top like the light on top of the TARDIS... I ended up going a bit simpler.

 

 

I even thought of maybe painting on white buttons. One would say "FREE FOR USE OF PUBLIC", and the other would look like a window. But then i remembered i had these buttons. Don't they look almost Gallifreyan?
 

I might end up adding some braids or tassels, but for now, I'm leaving it as is.

20  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Robin Hood-inspired Hat on: December 22, 2012 10:56:16 AM
This hat was inspired by Robin Hood by Grace Akhrem.

I used some leftover Bamboo Ewe in Sprout and Mermaid.







I didn't get any pictures of it on an actual head before it was snatched up.
