1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Head Huggers Aviator Hat on: December 05, 2006 12:23:42 AM
This hat looked kinda lame on the mannequin but I was inspired by lifelikeweeds' post. So here's my version with tassels! The yarn is Lion Brands' Microspun:

Yep, you read right! My knotless netting assignment (for fibers class) was to make three body parts that somehow nest together and this is what I came up with. Sorry the pictures are kinda crummy, this was incredibly hard to photograph! There's a retired biology teacher who's auditing the class, and she made a urinary system, so we made them fit together.

Just a bunch of FOs, all done with Caron's Simply Soft.

This hat was from a Stitchdiva pattern (http://www.stitchdiva.com/ProductInfo.aspx?productid=SDS-013). I didn't have the right size needles for the ribbing and I figured "why not use the next size up? it's ribbing, how bad could it be?"
This bad:

The pattern is cool though, I'll probably try this one again sometime.

Rolled up? I dunno, any other suggestions?

Anniversary present for my fiance, it's SnB Nation's Basic Cable with an added cable twist and some extra ribbing.

A friend is having a baby so I found the cutest bootie and hat set pattern. Right now I'm working on matching duck feet. If anyone's interested I can dig up the site I found this on, it had a bunch of awesome baby stuff.

And because my posts must always contain ratties, here are Jinx and Daisy Wink

4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Isis Wrap on: August 02, 2005 09:04:06 AM
I found an awesome thrift store dress to wear to my sister-in-law's wedding, but it's a little tight in the boobular area and needed a bit of coverup. So I made this; it's the Isis Wrap from Interweave Knits, minus the lace. This was my first real garment and I'm very happy with how it turned out!

5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Travel pillow pattern? on: May 21, 2005 03:29:05 PM
Ya know the pillows that go around your neck so you can sleep on the plane? I'm looking for a pattern. If it's shaped like a cute animal, that's even better! Grin

8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Easy Peasy T-Shirt Recon on: January 05, 2005 01:44:27 AM
D'oh, I took this in the mirror so the writing's backwards. It says "Keep on dancing." Anyhow, this was an Adult L tee I found at Goodwill and redid. I love the design! Oh, and the smudge on the boobal area is also from the mirror.

9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Jeans to pleated skirt on: December 30, 2004 08:11:30 PM
I finally got around to turning my stained pair of jeans into a skirt. This was the first time I'd done pleats and I'm pretty pleased with them. But handsewing through three layers of demin=ouch. So whatcha think?

10  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / First completed project - stripey scarf! on: December 07, 2004 07:59:27 PM
This is my first knitting project, and the first thing I've posted here. Just a plain ol' scarf, but I'm proud of it  Smiley
I learned lots and made a few boo-boos, but the texture of the yarn mostly covers them up.
So tell me whatcha think.
