21  Check out my gorgeous boyfriend! (Three Neckwarmers) in Knitting: Completed Projects by arrmatie on: April 18, 2005 06:29:05 AM
I made two neckwarmers over the winter (I was never fond of scarves) and just finished a third, lighter version.  I wanted something I could cram down the neck of my jacket that would block the wind but not be too hot.

Here's the first one, it's more of a cowl, really: bulky and shapeless.


The second is my favorite.  It's loosely based on this pattern http://www.needlebeetle.com/free/nw.htm

If it looks a little stretched out it's because I made it to fit myself but my much more photogenic (if slightly larger-necked) BF is modeling.

The third I knit in garter stitch with short row shaping.



That's it.  Just some FOs; I thought I'd post for closure.

22  Zaftig Dilemma in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by arrmatie on: April 09, 2005 05:09:53 PM
I wanted to try the Zaftig pattern from the Summer 2004 Knitty but as soon as I was done with those marvelous short-row shaped cups I realized I'm nowhere near daring or skinny enough to show off a handmade bikini top.  I though about making it into a full-length tank top but I'm concerned it would be too warm to be practical.  Any suggestions?

BTW, the yarn is Lion's Microspun (100% acrylic).  Also, I used a provisional cast-on for the straps because I wasn't sure how long I wanted to make them.  I was thinking about making them cross in the back.

23  Spidery Hobo Gloves in Knitting: Completed Projects by arrmatie on: April 04, 2005 11:34:26 PM
I made these for my BF to keep his hands warm while biking.


The spider pattern is from Barbara Walker's Charted Knitting Designs and the glove pattern is very loosely based on Marnie Maclean's Hooray for Me gloves, adapted for some gi-normous hands.

This is me trying to adjust the contrast so you can actually see the design:
