1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / my first socks! on: November 02, 2006 07:10:00 AM
my first socks...unofficial "socktoberfest" since i'm 2 days late!

i'm pretty pleased, except the yarn wasn't that great. a lot of "blobs" of color, but it was a good way to learn!  

anyone know of a good tutorial for grafting toes?  that was a little rough!

thanks for looking!

2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Trellis from Knitty on: October 22, 2006 11:40:53 AM
Completed!  It's been sitting, unseamed for a couple of months while I putzed around with other things.  Good thing it doesn't have an owner--they would have outgrown it!  I just wanted the challenge--and it was so darn cute.  My question:  anyone know of a similar pattern for an adult??  Has anyone made this in an adult size and can give me some pointers???  I've never altered a pattern that much!!



and the back--the picture of the back on knitty.com is what made me want to make this in the first place!



thanks for looking!!
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Projects for size 35 needles--any good ideas? on: December 11, 2005 11:56:08 AM
I just made a scarf with size 35 needles.  I had finished a big project and the immediate gratification of the scarf on size 35 was amazing!  Perfect inbetween project until I was ready to start something new. 

Any ideas or good patterns you've found for using these big fat needles?  I'd like to use them again, but maybe for something other than a garter stitch scarf!   
4  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / "The Cat" messenger bag--inspired by this board!! on: November 26, 2005 03:48:41 PM
I think I've been pretty productive over this Thanksgiving holiday!! Huge thanks to the people on this board posting helpful hints and tutorials.  This is sort of a mish-mash of ideas I got by lurking on this board and putting several things together.  It's basically a HUGE jordy-type bag, but I added a flap and a pocket in the lining.  Big firsts for me!  It was fun to do this pocket--look who peeks out at you!! 


I would consider myself a cat lover, but this is a gift for someone obsessed with her cats!!  Probably the only person who would actually carry it, too!!! Thanks again for everyone who posts projects here, to inspire my own!!
