1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Tree & Hedgehog on: July 10, 2011 05:57:18 PM
I made these for a button swap.  There is not a ton of actual needlework involved but I'm happy with the way they came out.

2  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Clever watering can, includes recycling! on: June 13, 2010 07:49:25 PM
I had been hanging onto this last empty bottle of laundry detergent for a fun craft project and I finally got around to doing something with it.

I decided to make it into a watering can, but I wanted it to be cuter.  So clearly, I first gave it a good rinsing.  Then I used that blue painters tape and cut out a floral type design.

Then I gave it a good spraying with some brown spray paint.  

I decided not to paint the blue top because it was a nice color to begin with and gives a nice contrast.  I just used a hammer and nail to puncture holes into the top.

I like the part on the back that shows how much liquid is in it, so I saved that.

And it actually works rather well!
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Razor Cami on: April 05, 2009 05:34:00 PM
I recently finished the Razor Cami by Katie Marcus http://www.ohmystars.net/craft/knitting/prazorcami.html
I found the pattern via ravelry. 

The simple lace pattern actually knit up very quickly.  I used Classic Elite Sundance yarn and its very lovely!  I'm pretty happy with the finished product.  I will probably shorten the straps because they are already kinda stetching. 
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Fun Knitted Bracelets on: February 14, 2009 01:38:27 PM
These were inspired by the Holiday 2008 Vogue Knitting.  I got the plastic bracelets for $2.50 at Claire's and the yarn is left over from other projects.

Doesn't this one look like an onion ring?

I enjoyed making these and wearing them!
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Baby boy blanket & more Saartje Booties on: August 24, 2008 12:19:22 PM
So it seems that baby gifts have dominated my knitting lately.  I probably need to make a grown up knit here soon.  
But!  We have friends that are expecting a boy in September and he needs knitted goods as an introduction to life.  

I knit this basic baby blanket with 1 skein each Lion Brand Cotton Ease.  I love using this yarn for baby gifts because its really soft, looks nice, and can be thrown in the washer & dryer.

And then of course, Saartje booties were in order because they are just so adorable!!

6  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Mr. Oinker Pants on: August 24, 2008 12:09:09 PM
I made this little guy for my Aunt who is having a boy in January.  My aunt has asked for as many handmade gifts as possible.  I got this pattern from a friend, I don't really know where she got it!

This pig was knit in two main pieces then sewn together.  And the the ears and tail sewn on last.  I feel like the nose is wonky looking, but that gives it character.  I knit this with Lion Brand Cotton Ease & its so soft!  I picture it being very huggable for a child.
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Finished Hew! on: May 03, 2008 12:09:43 PM

This Canary Knits pattern, available free on her site. http://canaryknits.blogspot.com/2008/03/hew-or-what-i-did-in-toronto.html She really has tons of cute patterns.

My neckline came out baggy for some reason, but I made it work with some folding and sewing.  Overall I'm really pleased and think it is totally wearable!  I used Elesebeth Lavold Silky Wool, which I now love.  Not itchy at all on my shoulders. 

ETA: Another color combo.  I really like it with the blue.  Plus it totally needed a brooch Smiley
8  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Saartje Bootees & Little Man knitted hat on: February 22, 2008 07:50:49 AM
So it seems like everyone I know is preggers these days.  I love making baby gifts, I've even started trying to stock-pile gifts so I'll be ready for each shower.

These Saartje bootees are so much fun to knit, no wonder everyone on craftster is making them.  I used vintage buttons from my collection, they have little flowers on them.  Unfortunately the pictures don't do them justice!

This hat is my own pattern, I call it Little Man Knitted Hathttp://theknittingdietitian.blogspot.com/2007/11/little-man-knitted-newborn-hat.html  I used a 1x1 ribbing this time.  I previously made this for a friend at work who reports that it was the hat that fit the best (I choose to believe this Grin)

9  CRAFTING FOR GOOD AND NOT EVIL / Crafty Charitable/Social Causes / Blanket's for women's shelter: need help! on: November 18, 2007 08:17:26 AM
I will be knitting Warm Up America blankets for Hope's Door Women's http://www.hopesdoorinc.org/ Shelter and I will need help. If you are not familiar with Warm Up America,please visit their website for more information http://warmupamerica.org/aboutWUA.html.

Basically, you knit (or crochet) 7'' x 9'' squares to donate and they are assembled into blankets for people in need. Receiving a donated blanket is more than just keeping warm, its knowing someone cares. I think this is a great idea. I am going to knit, collect, and assemble the squares into blankets and deliver to the women's shelter.

Also, I think it would be great if each knitter added a little tag on one of their squares with a favorite quote, nice message, personal story, etc. 

Anyone interested in helping?  Each square is appreciated!!

ETA:  Its finished!! 

It took a while to finish but its done!  It does have a bit of character, being that the squares were knit by 3 different knitters. 
10  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / knitted wedding ring pillow on: October 15, 2007 02:41:33 PM

I knitted this for my wedding in August.  Yarn:  Laines Du Nord, Mulberry Silk (100% silk) Needles: Size 7

This was very easy but I am very happy with the results.  I sewed green ribbon so that it could be held on the hand while holding a bouquet (my 13 year old sister, junior bridesmaid carried it).  Then I tied green ribbon through the center to hold the rings.

My sister practicing the untie for that special moment.  She did great.
