2  French Baby Octopi in Knitting: Completed Projects by sallysparks on: February 26, 2006 01:57:24 PM
As a Valentine's Day gift, I quickly knit up this brother and sister set. They're French!

Huit                                                           He has a snazzy little beret in brown wool.


Petit                                         She has a ponytail and bangs of matching brown wool.


The colors in the pics are kinda off, they're a pretty baby blue yarn. Just about actual size!

Their tags are on cardstock just to introduce themselves and are removeable. What do you think?

OK. Sorry everybody! I've just moved across country and it took me a while to get online so I'm sorry for those of you who haven't been able to see the octopus directions.

hopefully this will work.

7  Whale of a Scarf in Knitting: Completed Projects by sallysparks on: February 09, 2004 06:37:41 PM
Here's my favorite handmade scarf. It's a simple K1P1 rib out of leftover yarn on size 9 needles. I found this super cute whale in a bag of random patches at a thrift store and simply sewed it onto the finished scarf.



close up of whale patch:


This is my first successful ribbing project. For a long time, my scarves were ending up as long tubes because the sides were rolling. At the time, I only knew the stockinette stitch (sp?) so when I discovered the seed stitch and once I embraced the idea of ribbing, my scarves have been nice and flat ever since!   Grin

What is a flat-feld seam?



Does that explain it? It's basically a really nice touch to a boring seam and it also is really functional since it hides all the seam allowances up nice without serging or pinking the edges.

10  Smurf Dress from Sheets in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by sallysparks on: February 05, 2004 09:38:09 PM
Here's a dress that I made from a bedsheet that I found at the Goodwill. Super comfy and soft, very unique print, and way cheap (I think I only paid $1 for a twin-sized bed's worth of fabric!)
