1  First Quilt: Flock of Triangles by Denyse Scmidt in Quilting: Completed Projects by BeginnerKnitter on: November 04, 2007 01:16:56 PM
So I just finished binding off my first ever quilt!!! I used the Flock of Triangles pattern from Denyse Scmidt's Quilt-It Kit. I love the pattern and I've learned a lot. I'm moving on to make a queen-size one for my brother-in-law next.

I know it's a bit bunchy and uneven but it's a starting point, right?

Here you can see a corner of the back:

What do you think? Thanks to all the talented ladies on the quilting board--you guys inspired me along the way!

2  Denyse Schmidt Quilted Eyeglasses Case in Quilting: Completed Projects by BeginnerKnitter on: August 25, 2007 12:58:04 PM
I'm currently working on Denyse Schmidt's "Flock of Triangles" quilt, but because I'm hand-quilting it, it's going to be a while until I'm done! I have a ton of leftover scraps from it though, so I thought I'd make something quickly.

This is her "I Can See Clearly Now Eyeglasses Case" from the Quilt It Kit (and I believe her book as well). I love this kit because each pattern is on a handy card. OK, enough typing, here it is:

Ooh, I didn't realize there was a knitalong either! I finished mine back in February. I posted these a while back in the finished knits section, but since people here are still working I thought you might want to see. Hope this is OK!

I used Essential and Palette yarns from Knitpicks.com on size 3 needles.

You motivated me to get off my lazy butt and finally knit myself a Shedir! I used the same yarn you did--Debbie Bliss baby cashmerino.

I also omitted one cable repeat and it came out perfectly for my big ol' head. Thanks for the inspiration!

5  Embroidery on library cards in Needlework: Completed Projects by BeginnerKnitter on: November 25, 2006 07:27:43 AM
Hello! I recently purchased The Stitch-It Kit, which is excellent, and started learning about embroidery. I love how it is a fairly simple activity with amazing results.
I heard the craftypod podcast about embroidering on cards and was feeling inspired! Since two of my friends have birthdays coming up, I took this as a sign. I used library cards because they are readily available at my work and are on a decent paper stock. On the back is the catalog information for old medical textbooks, which I hope adds intrigue, rather than cheapness!

I'm very new to this, so it's not perfect, but I used chain stitch and back stitch on them. So much fun!

Yours is BEAUTIFUL Tamantha! It's inspiring to see a finished one since this seems to be taking me forever!

I'm making progress slowly but surely. Still hoping to add 3/4 sleeves, but I think they will end up being more like 1/2 sleeves based on the amount of yarn I have now.

It does seem to be fitting though! Here is a progress photo:

I hope this is OK. I didn't post here while I was working on it but I just finished my clapotis. I used Noro Silk Garden and followed the pattern exactly.

Is it OK to post on the end of a knit-a-long like this? Everyone's finished projects in this thread inspired me to make this. I am leaving it nice and curly--so pretty!

I loved yours so much I made one on Sunday!

It's super-fast to knit and is the perfect thing to use up some yarn. Also perfect for covering up my greasy hair on a Sunday when I don't feel like washing it!

I'm done!

I love it! I used Shine Sport and it is so soft and wonderful to work with. All in all I would say success!

I took 11 (!) pictures in all. All sorts of angles and details on my blog (emileee23.blogspot.com).

I noticed the neck is not as deep as I expected, but it's very much work-friendly now so I guess that's a good thing!

10  Re: Knit and Tonic's Somewhat Cowl? in Knitalongs by BeginnerKnitter on: July 29, 2006 07:55:16 AM
Ooh I totally forgot to post about this! I finished my Somewhat Cowl last week:

I'm still going to dye it--probably black. I just don't think white will last very long on me. I have to remember to pick up some RIT from the supermarket.

There is one other pic. on my blog on the July 18th post, if you are interested. I did get confused and I think I messed up the increase/decrease areas, but it's not as noticeable on, and it won't be noticeable at all once it's dyed. (Although I STILL don't know if I messed it up, I re-read the pattern and it made sense what I did...ugh, doesn't matter now)
