It gets worn fairly regulary in the New England weather! I'm tempted to make one for all my coworkers, not just the cute guy. It is definitely nice to have eye candy at work, even though he won't go near me cause I'm technically his boss. Roll Eyes
Oh well.

Thanks so much for all the feedback!!!!

oh my god that is SO CUTE!  Does it get worn a lot?  Cute, cute, cute, and funny!

Cute hat, but I think I need to see a pic of guy without the sunnies just to make sure the hat is as cute as it looks. Shocked

Here he is being dragged by me to the giant gong from hell. It is not such a good picture but I have to find another one.

You're sooooo welcome! I'm working on a pattern, even though it's easy to make. I'm going to make another one in  blues and reds. I'll post it at well, with another cute model.  Tongue

Cool hat!

Your coworker looks really familiar to me - is his name jon or mike? (they're twins)

Jazz

Hey Jazz,
My coworker's name is Eric. He's got a brother but not a twin.
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: 1-Day Wristwarmers (with link to PATTERN) on: February 22, 2006 05:16:46 AM
This is the first pair of very easy wristwarmers I wrote my own pattern for, a couple of months ago, trying to figure out if I could write a pattern at all -- but I couldnt post the pattern or photos then because the wristwarmers were supposed to be a gift for someone, so I had to wait until I gave her the gift. In the meantime, I made the cable wristwarmers pattern I posted a few weeks ago, to wear myself. Cool So here is my first pattern. (The cable wristwarmers were the third!) Its easier, so if the cabled version scared you, try these instead.  I can make these in one (8 hour) day of knitting, and if you are not a slow knitter like me, you can probably make them faster. They are great for quick Christmas presents!

The wristwarmers are ribbed, with a vertical thumbhole. (They are sort of like the Knitty Voodoo wristwarmers, but they have a vertical thumbhole instead of the horizontal one, and of course the yarn is different.) They are made of Cascade Pastaza, bulky yarn that is 50% Peruvian Highland Wool/50% Llama wool. (I really like this yarn, and bought several skeins of it for all of these wristwarmers!) They require US9 double-pointed needles.

The pattern is here (PDF), and the blog post is here, and here are the photos:


I promise the next pattern I post won't be wristwarmers.   Cheesy

Sweet, I'm working on some now, using Noro Kureyon, and they're going to turn into sleevels, they're so long!!

I decided to combine a couple of the projects in my SNB book (finally found one - is every book store in Los Angeles sold out? Congrats to Debbie!) - I really love the felting on the marsupial, but I wanted a cozy for my iPod.

I used blue/green wool that I didn't much like after I got it home - pretty colors, but I didn't like the weight (worsted?) and it knit up into blocky weird splotches. So I garter-stitched a 4x16" rectangle, turned up 6", stitched up the sides, and tossed it in a lingerie bag and into the hot wash (x2) and cold rinse (x1).

Unfortunately, the length shrunk a LOT more than the width, so it was either going to end up too wide, or really a lot too short. But I wanted to check out the felting (I'm fascinated, I don't know why), and I wasn't happy with how not felted it was after rounds 1 and 2 in the washer. So I popped it in again for 2 more washes and one more rinse. Super tight!  But felted Smiley  So I stretched it, and pulled on it, and yanked on it, until it (barely) covered my iPod. And the color is much better, and much brighter than the pictures show.

I'm pretty pleased. My first non-scarf project! Still a rectangle, but I think I'm ready to graduate to Tank Girl.

So now to pick a button - any suggestions?
I'm thinking the button will be decorative, and I'll stitch a snap underneath. No velcro, though... velcro + dreads = potential pain Wink

He-he-he, I'll have to get a picture of Mr. Sunglasses without the sunglasses! He's rather cute in person and newly single!   Wink Grin

Thanks so much!!! I used my other coworker as a pom-pom maker!

btw, how did you use your coworker as a pompom maker? using his arms?

Yeah, I made "her" (I only work with one cute guy) stick her arms out and stand there as I wrapped the pom-pom!

So, silly ol' me decides my boyfriend needs a blanket for Christmas.  I thought for a long while about what kind of design to make, then I remembered he loved the Space Invaders blanket I saw on here.  So I went for my own take on the video game idea and came up with this (having JUST finished it last week):



It's pretty much to scale with the controller, as I used it for a template for my chart.  It's done in a doublestrand of worsted weight acrylic on size 17 needles,with a crocheted border.

He LOVES it and it has taken a place of honor at the foot of our bed.  All his friends want one, but he gets the only one! Grin

Chart could be made available for anyone who might want it.

This is sooooo FAN-FREAKING-TASTIC!!!!
