1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Swiffer Cover on: June 15, 2008 10:31:58 PM
I used my last swiffer pad the other day ago and I refuse to buy any more. So I'm sticking it to the "Swiffer Man" and I made my own.

I just chained until it measured about 16" and sc the first row and sc through bl only the rest of the rows. I sewed little sleeves and there you have it. I used it today and it works great. Grin







2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / I want to knit for charity...but.... on: April 08, 2008 08:48:17 PM
I have a real interest in knitting for charity (especially for project Linus). However, my husband is a smoker. I know that many if not all charities will not allow donations from a smoker's home. Does anyone have any suggestions on how I can do this? Or am I out of luck until he puts the fire out?   Sad
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Scrap Handwarmers on: March 05, 2008 08:34:22 AM
Just some handwarmers I made using left over sock yarn. When I was making the socks I kept thinking "This would be great for arm warmers!" The sad thing is the socks I made from the yarn is no longer in service due to the sock monster. So now I can't match hands and feet. Oh, well.  Grin I forget what pattern I used as a base. I mostly just knit it from the top of my head pulling tips from my brain from all the countless knitting books I've read.

Sorry for the horriable pictures. Our other computer is down and I can't use the digital camera card with my laptop so I had to use the webcam lol. At least you can get the general idea.

Yarn: Memories from Knitpicks. 100% merino wool in Cape Cod
size 2 DPNs



4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Question about Knit Picks.... on: June 21, 2007 09:00:40 PM
Just finished a project with Memories and later went to the website to see that the color I used plus a few other colors are on clearence now. My question is this: is the whole line going to be out or just those certain colors? (couldn't find anything else about them on the website but just the clearence colors)

My hope is that it's just the colors because I enjoy the yarn.
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / A True First... on: June 21, 2007 08:40:37 PM
...pair of socks!

I say this because I have knitted one, but it was a practice run. Here are my hot-off-the-dpns socks:






It didn't take me as long to finish this pair as I thought it would. I started getting second sock syndrome right before I did the graft for the toe (which is a little wonky so maybe a factor Huh) on the 2nd. So not too bad.  Cool

Here's the details
_____________

Pattern: from Silver's Sock Class (lurve it!)
Yarn: Memories 100% Merino Wool from Knit Picks in "Cape Cod"(ack! ack! some is on clearence and I'm broke!!!! Shocked) Nice and squishy.
Needles: size 2 dpns (knit on 4)

thanks for looking  Smiley

7  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Under Where? Under The Hoodie on: June 12, 2007 12:48:24 PM
I can't believe I haven't posted this yet Grin I made this last year!:

Up close and personal:

I used my crappy cell phone to take these pictures. The colors really are these:

I wanted to get as close as I could to the colors of the one in the book. I don't own anything in these colors so it was a nice change. It's made with Caron Simply Soft in size Medium. It's super soft and it only cost me 6 bucks to make! I haven't had the chance to wear it much outdoors (southeast Texas mind you), but I wear it all the time indoors because I married a polar bear.
I even have another UTH WIP in green shades:

I'm making this one a size larger to be more comfy and a little frumpy for my days when I feel lazy (or lousy).

I even had enough yarn left over to make a handbag (crochet) from the Happy Hooker!

8  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Washcloths for baby? on: March 22, 2007 08:50:51 PM
My ex-boyfriend's little sister is having a baby and she invited me to her babyshower. I was thinking of creating a baby and mama gift basket and wanted to add washcloths for baby in there. Which type of cotton yarn would be best? (brand)
