11  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Whale of a Scarf 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.

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
12  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Smurf Dress from Sheets 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!)
