11  Little girl's furry bolero in Knitting: Completed Projects by 80schick on: April 09, 2006 10:45:02 AM

This is one of my early projects on my return to knitting. It's from a Sirdar pattern for Funky Fur (pattern no 2078), knitted in Funky Fur Magic self striping yarn. I tried to discourage Georgie from going for this yarn as the stripes are obviously inconsistent but she was adamant. I originally made it to go with a posh dress I bought her in a sale at the department store John Lewis but she wears it all the time over strappy dresses and tops. I'm delighted that she likes it so much. Thank you for looking.

Woohoo!! I finally made a pair for myself in my favourite colour! This is my fourth pair now, I love this pattern. The beauty of it is that you can make the gloves as long or short as you like according to preference and yarn availability. I made these half the length recommended with 1 ball of Debbie Bliss Cathay on 4mm needles. I love Ysolda's patterns, I'm currently making the skull illusion scarf in Watford Football Team colours for my friend's son's 15th birthday. Anyhow, here are my gloves (Gothtastic):

13  Cute furry bags for lil' girls (cross posted) in Knitting: Completed Projects by 80schick on: March 16, 2006 01:30:48 PM
These are bags I knitted early on in my return to knitting.They are made from Sirdar Funky Fur Magic. The one on the right was the first for my daughter Georgina. She thought it was a bit boring just knitted and suggested the heart on the front. I had a bit of lining fabric left over and used that. I did motifs on the other 2 as well, they were Christmas presents for my friend's daughters. I'm really proud of them they're really cute and get admiring glances everywhere. I'd like one in black to relive my gothic teens, maybe with one of Georgie's old Barbie heads attached to the strap for a macabre twist! Not so cute huh?



Thanks for looking

I seriously can't get enough of this pattern. It's quick and easy and the recipients love the results. My daughter is delighted with her gloves and got envious glances from her friends, and I'm part way through a pair for my friend Emma (with red ribbon).This is still a work in progress.

OK true to my word I made these for my daughter and here she is modelling them. She's going to wear them to school tomorrow (I warned her not to get them confiscated) and she reckons her Emo friend will be green with envy (or black with it, Emo being some kind of goth/grunge hybrid apparently). Anyway, I'm now making a pair for my goth friend Emma. I used Rowan Luxury cotton DK and cast on more stitches. The ribbon is actually pink, it looks really wishy-washy in the photo. Despite my ardent 80s influenced feminist sensibilities both my daughters love pink, so pink it had to be. I did them on size 7/8? (4mm) needles and managed to get a whole pair out of almost one ball.

17  Fluffy Gameboy Advance pouch in Knitting: Completed Projects by 80schick on: January 17, 2006 03:39:01 PM
I seem to be destined to make 'holders' for my kids' belongings, this time it's a pouch/cosy for Georgie's Gameboy. I'm especially proud of this. I used Sirdar Fun Fur Magic yarn and the red design at the front is supposed to be a heart but it gets lost in the fluff. Here are the various stages:



Pieces sewn together with lining



The inside showing the two little pockets made out of lining fabric for extra games



My husband modelling the pouch containing the Gameboy Advance and 2 games in the pockets



The finished article, with handle

I'm making another in Patons Beehive (anyone remember that one? Mine's been knocking around unused for about 10-12 years!) using jeska's space invaders design. That one's for Alex, and yes, I'll be using the zebra lining. Watch this space!

Here are some more pics:



This shows the zip



This is the lining. It's a really sturdy mediumweight cotton curtain fabric that I took a shine to because of the Zebra pattern (there's my African heritage showing). It was a completely ridiculous bargain and I've got loads for other projects (see my other post for Gameboy Advance pouches)



Here's the inverted 'A' on the reverse

Hi folks,

I'm new around here. I've knitted a few funky bags for my 7 year old daughter Georgina and her friends (may post those later) but I'm particularly proud of this pencil case I knitted my 12 year old stepson Alex (hence the 'A'). I told Georgie that I'd be posting it on here and she insisted I take a picture of her with it (she's so vain, and so photogenic it makes me spew!!). This is my first intarsia project.
