1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Flowery Skull Cap on: January 28, 2007 05:44:12 PM

It feels so weird to be posting on the crochet board- I'm mainly a knitter! But I got the urge to start hooking the other night, and in a matter of hours I had worked up that hat!

I based the pattern on an old skull cap pattern that I found years ago at an old website called GroovyCrochet.com - you can find the link here now:

I made quite a few modifications, as the gauge is TOTALLY off in that pattern (the first time I made it, it could have fit a watermelon). The yarn is just some random worsted weight acrylic I had in my stash. I used a size G hook.

I wore this hat all day yesterday on a wine tour, and it was a hit! I may have just converted back to crochet ;-)
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Anna Socks from Rowan #40 on: October 25, 2006 08:22:15 PM

As part of my contribution to Socktoberfest, I present to you my freshly-finished Anna Socks! I'm very pleased with how they turned out!

Rowan isn't really in my budget at the moment, so I substituted Knitpicks Gloss in Black. What a great yarn! Smooth and silky, but tough at the same time- no splits, no pilling. Just pure perfection. Best of all I was able to get away with using only one hank per sock, bringing the grand total for these babies to about $8.

The lace pattern is easy to memorize, and interesting enough so that I didn't suffer from second sock syndrome. I seriously want a pair of these in every color!
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Nubby Scarf from Hollywood Knits on: December 04, 2005 06:15:58 PM
This weekend was freakin' freezing.... so I knit up the Nubby Scarf from Suss Cousins' Hollywood Knits. I wasn't sure I'd like it because I combined some pretty weird yarns, but I actually think it turned out good!

Here it is on a chair:



And here it is on me:

4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / One-Button Cardigan From Knit1 (Spring 05) on: November 05, 2005 06:42:39 PM
So I finished that gorgeous-looking one-button cardigan that was on the cover of the Spring/Summer '05 Issue of Knit.1 magazine. I had high hopes as I was knitting... it knit up very smooth with Lion's Brand Homespun. Unfortunately... I think I made it about 2 sizes too big. As you can see in this picture, it makes me look like I'm about 30 pounds heavier than I actually am:



I had to put in this picture for comparison:



I'm kind of bummed. The sleeves are a little more bolero-y than I would like, but overall it just really doesn't fit me well. Tear! It is a nice sweater though... Anyone with slightly broader shoulders than I have want it?
