Photos! The kid obliged, although he crossed his eyes at me and laughed the whole time which made the camera shake.  Roll Eyes Eek, I really take an awful photo, but I needed it to prove I actually finished, LOL.

And here's a closeup of the metal hook and eye clasp I got from Hancock Fabrics.

When I went to put this on for the photo, I realized I don't have anything to wear it with. Undecided

2  Newsworthy - a newsboy style cap in Knitting: Completed Projects by mmdm on: November 12, 2007 10:14:58 AM
My new hat.  Smiley I decided I wanted something newsboy-ish so this is what I came up with. I think it turned out pretty cute. There's an action shot on my http://www.ravelry.com/projects/gottamake/newsworthy Ravelry page for it, but I think it looks cuter on the lamp shade. If I get time, I'm going to try to write up the pattern before I forget what I did because I think I'd like to make more of them.

I forgot to post this the other day. The photo of the front came out blurry but the back one shows the cabling ok. I'll have to try to get another of the front. It fits really well.

My red top-downer is having a bit of a rest while I decide what length I want the sleeves to be. I am leaning toward 3/4 or maybe elbow because it is so warm here and it is a cotton cardi. I could be wearing it now with short sleeves, but it will soon be cool enough for the 3/4 sleeves. I think I'd get more wear out of it than with long sleeves but I'm not sure how it would look, because it is worsted weight so kind of heavy looking.

Here's one I didn't suggest, but really liked. I'd love to see the front of it.

After you do a pair of short-row sections, the sock is straight, so couldn't you just do any heel you want at that point? I hope so, because that's what I'm planning... Smiley

If you need to add extra stitches for the gusset, couldn't you add them in every row during the last few short-rows (which are pretty long so they cover most of the sock) or the plain K rows? Or just do one less repeat of the shortrow sections and have plain K rows with the gusset?

Well, I guess you could do any heel then, but the gusset would need to have been started way back, not when the heel starts. At least it would for toe-ups, which is the way I'm working them. I might try adding a few stitches in those last couple of stockinette rows, though. Maybe it will be enough. Or maybe I can figure out pmack's thumbjoint heel when I get to it. I re-started mine on fewer stitches because they were coming out too big. Here's what I've got so far -

I've only got one skein of the hand-dyed so I'm doing solid toes.

Sometimes the novelty stuff works ok if you use it as trim. I made this chocolate brown felted purse with a bit of fun fur type yarn at the top. Much prettier in person.

7  Celtic Vest in Knitting: Completed Projects by mmdm on: September 25, 2007 10:15:11 AM

I finished the Celtic Vest from Fleece Artist. The pattern was a bit sketchy, but the yarn was bliss and the finished vest is very nice. You can read my blog entry here, if you like -
There is also a closeup of the clasp there.

I picked up the stitches for my seamless set-in sleeve last night and finished all the short rows. I'm down to the armpit level and I need to get a shorter needle to continue much further. I love this method! Bigger photos and details on my blog here -

ThreadorYarn - I took notes but I'm not sure I trust my ability to decipher them later, so I'll probably put this sleeve on yarn and go ahead and start the other one so I know they will match.  Smiley

It is so nice to know NOW that the sweater will fit, instead of having to wait until it is all finished and seamed up to find out.

Here's a technique I use. I draw something with an embossing pen, then sprinkle on white embossing powder and heat until embossed. Then paint over the whole thing with watercolors. The embossing powder will resist the paint and you can use a tissue to gently wipe it off of the embosses lines. Sometimes it doesn't even need wiping. Here's an ATC I made using it -
