21  Re: first attempt at finger puppets in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by knitchick2 on: June 01, 2005 07:21:53 AM
I HAVE to try the lion next!!  The mane is great.  Did you use the Knitty pattern?  I kind of used the Knitty pattern to figure out my frog, but actually knit my bunny puppet on dpn's, which I liked much better...

22  Skull Tote (link to free pattern!) in Knitting: Completed Projects by knitchick2 on: May 31, 2005 12:01:32 PM
My first attempt at intarsia.  And felting.  Still not sure if I did either one correctly.  Either way, I love the irony of knitting a skull and crossbones with my Nana's knitting needles.



I used the pattern from http://www.helloyarn.com
By the way, my Nana totally digs the bag.  Grin

23  My Greatest Triumph!...so far... in Knitting: Completed Projects by knitchick2 on: May 20, 2005 10:47:30 AM
I knit these cabled, elbow-length, fingerless mitts for my sister and it was definitely a labor of love, emphasis on "labor".  Not only was it my first attempt at cables, but it was also the first time I'd knit something on smaller needles and smaller yarn.  But I knew I had to break my addiction to big needles, chunky yarn, and (almost) instant gratification...



Here is the free pattern: http://www.crystalpalaceyarns.com/cpy/patterns/mikado-gloves.html

I was NOT thrilled with the pattern.  Some of my frustration might be due to the fact that I often have no idea what I'm doing, but I had to add more decreases in the wrist so that it wouldn't bunch up, and I think they could have used a slightly heavier yarn.  By the end of the first glove, I was so frustrated with them that I ignored the directions for the thumb and hand shaping and modified the mitten pattern from Weekend Knitting that I was already comfortable with.

But my punky younger sister loves them!! So all's well that ends well, I guess!  Smiley

24  Tarzan Tank in Knitting: Completed Projects by knitchick2 on: May 20, 2005 08:47:48 AM
My first sweater and my first post... How exciting!



I used New York City Lights pattern from Berocco, omitting the Laser FX yarn.  Novelty yarns are not usually my thang, so I knit the whole thing using Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece in Truffle.  I could NOT, for the life of me, get the tension right on the ribbing around the arm and necklines (it was always too tight!) so I did 3 rows of crochet instead and it worked out pretty well.

Here's the pattern! http://www.berroco.com/exclusives/nycity_lights.html
