11  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / This felt good on: July 01, 2004 02:32:36 PM
I know that almost everyone and their momma has posted their felted purses but I thought I'd join the mix and post mine, too.



I used Lamb's Pride which, if you ask me, is the best yarn to knit with.  The pink is bulky and the green and blue is worsted weight.  I basically followed a pattern from Felted Knits for the green and blue and the pink one was kind of made up.  Not like I'm a genius or anything; making up a pattern for a felted purse is one of the easiest things in the world.
12  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Paris Loop from MagKnits on: June 09, 2004 09:21:28 AM


Here is my finished Paris Loop.  My cast on row is a bit tight around the arms but it still works.  I used different needle sizes than the pattern called for.  I used 10 1/2s and 8s.  I bought 13s but couldn't find them when I started the project so I just used two sizes.  If I had used the 13s (and found them, actually), I think it would have turned out better.

Sorry about the quality of the picture.  The mirror I'm in front of is quite dirty.
BTW, I'm not pregnant.  Just have a big belly.
13  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Kerchief from Stitch n Bitch on: June 01, 2004 09:08:51 AM
Just thought I'd post a pic of my kerchief from S n B.  It was super easy to make and good practice on increasing.  I highly recommend it if you haven't tried increasing yet.  I used Manos del Uruguay cotton yarn.  Nice yarn and oh so yummy.

14  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / My Cow Ear Hat on: June 01, 2004 09:00:19 AM
Here is the first hat I made after making countless scarves.  I made it back in January but I just got an online photo album to post pics.  Don't ask me about a pattern 'cuz I don't remember what I did.  I cast on some number of stitches on size 11's and then did k2, p2 ribbing.  After it looked big enough, I folded it in half and sewed up the side.  I guess I did remember some of it! Cheesy  I used Lion Brand Homespun which looks great but is like butt to work with. I like this yarn, though, b/c it has green all throughout it and gradually changes the alternating color.



BTW, I made the magnets that are on the fridge behind me  Grin
