11  Re: Rogue along for FEB and beyond in Knitalongs by kelly_bear on: September 29, 2006 05:26:59 PM
EEE! My yarn came today! Grin
It is a bit darker than I anticipated..

I love it though!
I swatched (and swatched and swatched...) and it looks like I'm going to to use size 10's (6 mm) needles.It sort of surprised me..I was thinking I'd end up at like..size 8's?But thats what it took to get the right stitch gauge on straight needles.
Now I need to get my hiney to the store for some circulars..
Can't wait to start my Rogue! Cheesy

Here's mine so far.He's still nameless..And tail-less and missing one leg and a mouth for that matter Tongue
I couldn't find pellets to put in the body,so I'm using dried beans.

15  First stencil attempts in Stenciling: Completed Projects by kelly_bear on: April 16, 2006 07:09:14 AM
I'm pretty new to stencilling..I did a lot when I was really young (like 4 Roll Eyes ) but you all have made me want to give this stencilling thing a try.This time with cool pictures,not those wierd flowery stencils from the craft store Grin


So- Here is my first attempt..HomestarRu nner! I got the stencil from homestarrunner's pumpkin carving page (http://www.homestarrunner.com/ween_stencils.html) and used acrylic paint with a manilla folder as my cardstock--That stuff was a nightmare! My blade kept on ripping the folder!Freezer paper is so much easier to work with.

(ignore my deformed looking hand,please)

My 2nd stencil was the white tree of gondor from Lord of the Rings.I did it with acrylic paint and freezer paper.The freezer paper kept getting stuck in my printer and causing a jam,though so I ended up printing the image on normal paper and tracing to my freezer paper.
The image is from an old thread I found while lurking around here (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=21321.0)



Thanks for getting me interested in this,you guys..It is addictive! Grin

16  Mother's Day Felted Slippers in Knitting: Completed Projects by kelly_bear on: March 31, 2006 11:38:49 PM
Cheesy I don't think I have ever had my Mother's Day gift done this early!

I knitted these with the 'Striped Slipper Socks' pattern from the book 'Knit one,Felt too' by Kathleen Taylor--With a few screw ups modifications,using some yarn I kool-aid dyed.
I love these!They worked up in no time on my big needles Grin

I hope she will like them.She has another pair that I knit her a few years ago using another pattern from the same book,but she is always wearing slippers around the house and they've gotten a bit worn.That plus,you can't have too many pairs of slippers!I hope she likes these as much as I do! (Actually,before felting,I was seriously thinking of keeping these for myself Lips sealed  )


Before felting


After felting (5 times through the washer,I think..She has tiny feet!)

17  Re: Little red turtleneck sweater for iPod Nano! (WITH PATTERN) in Knitting: Completed Projects by kelly_bear on: March 06, 2006 02:02:59 PM
This was such a fun and quick pattern.I made one for my dad's nano.I haven't given it to him yet and I'm not even sure he'll like/use it! But it was really fun to knit Grin

I made a few minor changes..The sleeves are  in the round and shortened them a few rows and I slipped the 2nd stitch of the cable pattern completely off the needle before i knit the first stitch.I wish i had caught myself doing this earlier..the normal cable looks cuter.I just figured it was only supposed to look like a cable so i didn't think anything of it.

I also used size 3 needles instead of size 4.My gauge was still the same though Huh

here's my finished result

thanks so much for the pattern!

18  Cabled Headband in Knitting: Completed Projects by kelly_bear on: February 16, 2006 05:26:10 PM
I love to figure skate.However,my ears can get really cold when I go and I get headaches.(I'm a Florida girl or sure!)
To solve my problem,I knitted myself a headband.

I made this with a bit of an old skein of Lion Brand fisherman's wool I had laying around on size 5 needles.
Then Dyed it with 8 packages of grape Kool Aid( Shocked ) which was a nightmare.If you have the choice,dye the yarn before you knit-not after.It saves a load of trouble! I had to redye this because the color was not consistent.

Before dye:
Cabled side-


Ribbed side (back)-


After Dye(the color is a bit off):




Ta da!

19  Re: Flapperish or 1930's Cloche Hat with Flower - - Pattern Too! in Crochet: Completed Projects by kelly_bear on: January 24, 2006 04:20:35 AM
Mine turned out a bit small. It pops up on my head when i wear it.
The next one i do will have to have an extra round on top or something.

here's mine (with random flowers becuase i was too lazy to make a new one Lips sealed)



thanks so much for posting the pattern!

20  Re: panta! (from a finnish pattern). in Knitting: Completed Projects by kelly_bear on: January 18, 2006 10:03:53 PM
Eep! I look a like an eight year old in mine Tongue
I wish it was a bit narrower.I might have to redo it and take off the widest point.Other than that,I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out.Its very warm and comfortable.


Anyway-Here's my finished panta.

I made it with some kool aid dyed wool left over from a pair of socks I made a few years ago.Thanks for posting the pattern!
