1  Cat Cushion in Knitting: Completed Projects by catboy on: September 21, 2005 03:04:53 AM
Finally completed this cat cushion (i had gotten lazy, and couldn't be bothered knitting the back so it took a while).  The pattern has since disappeared from the web. It was only archived until this month, but thankfully i saved it, so i can now knit the other nine panels to make the matching rug.  Hopefully i should have it done by Winter 2009!

I saw this really great pattern on http://www.domiknitrix.com/knittingpatterns/malcolmx_knittingpattern.cfm so I decided to make it for a friend.

I am going to frame it for them so they can hang it next to their poster of him.
It only took about six days, although i had to backtrack a couple of times because i got distracted by the television and the cat.

Thanks, guys!
You have no idea how much hair-tearing i had to do to try and get this chart up.  I have just recently transferred from an iMac to a PC because of my uni course - and i have to say Macs are so much more userfriendly.
I did the chart in excel, then tried to save it as a jpg - i am probably missing something really simple but could not find out how to do it.  In Appleworks it was as simple as copy and then paste into a word doc, then save that as a jpg.  If anybody could give me some tips, i would be extremely grateful!  Huh
In the end i had to TAKE A PHOTO off my computer, and then post that instead.  I hope it will do.
So, that is a longwinded introduction to the chart:

To make the wristband all i did was cast on 44 stitches, and then worked in the star in the middle of the piece.

The first season of Wonder Woman has just come out on DVD over here, so i thought it would be fun to make some WW power bands to celebrate.

It was bloody hard to try and find a star motif on the web so i had to end up making it on graph paper - thankfully it turned out okay (or so i think, they look a bit better than they do in this photo).  I hope the people they are passed onto like them as well!

Thanks for the pattern, melidomi!
I basically did the Firefly hat in one colour, minus the earflaps and this was the result:

It got a bit bunched up, but i think it's okay!

Okay, here it is!

It looks okay, but i really stuffed it up as it is too small for my gorran head.  Oh well, it just means a smaller-headed friend will get it as a present and i must knit another for myself.
(Advance screenings of the BDM start next month here - i cannot wait)

7  Cat Face Afghan in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by catboy on: June 27, 2005 05:12:17 AM
Hi all!
I have just completed the first panel of a catface afghan rug at http://www.acrilan.com/patterns/aug04/catfaceafghan.html

It's going to be a bit of a long term project for me  Wink and this first panel is going to turn out to be the matching cushion as i didn't leave enough wool at the back while changing colours and therefore it's a bit bunched up.
Does anyone have any ideas for what to do with the back of the rug?  I don't really want to have to knit squares for the back of each panel, because frankly i don't have the patience!  Is there a good bit of material one can use, or any other tips?
