I made 3 pairs of armwarmers from LMKG - more details on my blog!

It's so awesome! I want it...
How did you do the border of the hat?

The border is just a short 1x1 rib... in retrospect, 2x2 rib would have made this a much more secure hat Smiley

I love this book and it's always on standby when I need quick knits to keep me going...

I made the Children's Cotton Hat in Cashmerino Aran:


It doesn't look much, but actually only takes about 2 hours and has really pleased the recipient (my daughter, Chloe):

Chunky wool (not cashmere, but this is a test) + new needles (treat) + 2 wooden buttons = less than 5

I'll have finished this while watching TV tonight.

$425 my butt cheeks.

ah, but are they olive wood buttons with your fancy-schmancy logo carved into them??

blech, rich people are stupid.

It took an hour. Not even a complete hour, as I was watching the news and drinking cherryade while I did it. If the power had not gone out, I would have had the buttons on in an hour too. I am also led to believe loom knitting is faster?

I do have some snazzy wooden buttons and a soldering iron, so I might get my initials on them tonight...
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: How can I make this scarf without DPNs? on: September 27, 2007 08:43:02 AM
Quite simply, you can't really. This scarf is knit in the round - it's a tube that can't be knit on 2 straight needles. You could look for a short circular (I think 16" would be too long) or use the magic loop method, but I think they're on a par with just knuckling down and getting to grips with DPNs.

You could alter the pattern and just knit half, but the other side of the scarf will be a big mess of floats Smiley

I thought I'd show off some socks I have just started with some Kool Aid dyed yarn...



They look like Easter eggs!

Aww, thanks guys!

I am 5 inches into the hood now - I have even organised a work knit-a-long to buy me extra time to complete it... will the yarn last?

This is a progress pic from earlier last night - sorry about the bad lighting! I have now finished the right front and gotten a couple of pattern repeats into the hood. I hope to finish the hood tonight so I can begin picking up the bazillion stitches for the edging... yes, that's my least favourite bit.

I know it looks very slender in this pic - that's because the sleeves have been blocked and the body is still a bit curly  Cheesy

I am making progress! I have finished two sleeves and the back is only about 2 inches from completion. There's a little bit of an issue with having enough yarn (I have managed to track more down online, it's a discontinued colour of DB Merino Aran) but I hope to finish soon!

Here's a few progress pics...
