21  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Washington State Cougar Coffee Sleeve on: December 22, 2012 10:44:15 AM
Sure, the sleeve is crochet... but the real star is the logo. So, here i am.

I don't do a lot of embroidery, but it actually looks like the school's logo, so i'm happy.
22  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Sounders Mitts on: November 17, 2012 11:00:52 PM
After finishing my brother's Sounders scarf, i have some leftover yarn. So i made myself a pair of mitts!

I'm obsessed with linen stitch.

23  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Baby Mitts on: November 17, 2012 10:58:06 PM
I knit my nephew some mittens before he was born in a pretty cotton, kind of forgetting that cotton doesn't stretch or hold its shape all that well. The ribbing stretched out, so they kept falling off. So i made him a pair in some leftover Bamboo Ewe i had.


I had Frankenstein in mind as i knit, but now all i can see are reverse eggplants.
They work much better than the cotton ones.
24  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Sounders Scarf on: November 17, 2012 10:54:07 PM
This scarf took exactly one year to knit. Not because it was hard. Because i kept getting so sick of it. I started it on my brother's birthday last year and finished it on his birthday this year.
Anyway, it's a Sounders scarf, so at least he can wear it during their game tomorrow... And he'll have it for every season to come.

25  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Sonic Screwdriver Sleeves on: November 17, 2012 10:33:46 PM
Who looks at their coffee and thinks, "ooh, this could be a little more sonic"?

I do!

My favorite part is rolling it up and pretending it's really a sonic screwdriver.
26  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Baby Bomber Hat on: November 14, 2012 11:14:23 PM
My nephew turned one month old yesterday (how time flies), and my sister wanted something special for him to wear to take some pictures. She kept whining that she hadn't made a sign, or anything, so i set about crocheting him a hat.

I made the thing completely before trying it on him, and it was a perfect fit. Score!


I didn't get any good pictures of it on him. Meh.

Since most bomber hats have two buttons on the flap, i think I'm going to take off the 1 and add some buttons.
27  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / A Snowflake Hat on: November 04, 2012 01:09:01 AM
I had a lot of problems casting on for this hat. I kept messing up just casting on.
Then, at least three times as i was working on my 1x1 rib, i purled twice in a row.
Got off to a rough start.

Then i didn't like the snowflake chart i had chosen. So i made my own, simple chart.


I think it turned out well for all the problems i had.

28  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Terribly Simple on: November 04, 2012 01:00:15 AM
I bought two balls of Knit Picks Galileo recently as a treat to myself. I couldn't decide what to make, so i turned to Caitlin Ffrench. She has several cute and easy-looking patterns.

I chose one called Terribly Simple.

I kind of love the curly ends.


By the way, i highly recommend this yarn. It's super soft and drapes beautifully.
29  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / So, i made some TARDIS socks... on: October 29, 2012 12:15:22 PM
I knit some TARDIS socks for my partner in the latest Doctor Who swap.

I started with this pattern by Keladry Bonnett: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/tardis-socks
But i only have size 2 needles, so the first one started out fine... then it started becoming huge. Like, legwarmers huge. That's what i get for not swatching, right?

So, i started over, using a basic heel flap pattern i've used before by PetYarn: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/basic-heel-flap-socks

I modified the first chart to fit the lesser stitch count.
And i made the windows a little bit shorter.

I didn't really care for the "textured" part of the pattern (the squares), so i looked for other TARDIS socks and ran across these by buxtrosin on flickr: http://www.flickr.com/photos/buxtrosion/7058806299/
I liked that better, so i borrowed it.

So, these are the ones i sent to my partner:

(Thank you, sparks, for the picture.)

The only semi-good picture i could get:

Then i had a bunch of yarn left over. I had only used tiny amounts of black and white, so i made myself a pair.

I finished them in the hospital while my sister was being induced and we waited for my nephew to be born.

So again, i drew inspiration from two patterns and one random photo, so there's no one pattern i can give you.

Needles: US size 2
Yarn: Knit Picks Palette -- 2 balls of Jay*, 1 ball each of White and Black (just remember you only use small, small amounts of the white and black)

I used 1 ball of Jay, but i did end up needing to join the second ball right at the very end. I mean, i only had a couple more rows to do before i grafted the toe together. So, depending on how tall and how long your socks are, i would say it's probably best to get 2. To be safe.

If you have any questions, ask away.
30  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Thor Wings for My Slouch on: August 05, 2012 10:33:15 PM
My mom and i decided to see The Avengers again today. I had told myself i would make myself a Thor helmet hat before i saw the movie again. Well. I didn't end up making one, so i scrambled to think of something in the half hour i had before it was time to leave. Then i remembered the first hat i ever knit was grey, so i decided to cut some wings out of felt. Boom. Thor hat.

I was sure i knew where it was.

I was wrong.

Then i remembered i have a couple slouches with grey in them, and i had about 8 minutes left at this point. One of them would have to do.

I found one, cut out the wings, grabbed needles, embroidery floss, scissors, and ran out the door. I had them mostly sewn on by the time we reached the cinema, but i finished the second one during previews. Cheesy

Welp. Here it is.



I decided it can be half Thor, half Captain America, since they both have wings and the top of the hat is blue.

Thanks for looking!
