1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Norwegian Style Baby Hat on: May 15, 2007 09:07:27 PM
After seeing this hat, linked to on Hello Yarn's blog, I couldn't wait for it! I had to knit it right now! So...I did. Except I did it with some of my own handspun and at a much larger gauge.

For details, check my blog post.

2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Lela-be Outfit on: April 30, 2006 05:30:36 PM
I decided today while looking at yarn (online because my LYS isn't open until Tuesday) that I am going to make a maternity type version of the Lelah top for me this summer. And I might as well make the skirt too...and oh yeah! Why don't I just make that Gwen-a-be Zim hat I've been thinking about too?? Here's my whole blog about it.

If I buy the yarn for it all at once it will be cheaper too.  Grin Haha I'm just so excited about this and nobody reads my blog so I had to talk about it somewhere.... lol
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Maternity tank top? on: April 20, 2006 06:52:20 PM
Okay...so I'm due in September and I have NEVER been pregnant in the summer before. So I'm going to need some maternity tops. And I thought, you know I could knit one just to kill time at LEAST.

So if you see any kind of empire waisted tunic type tank or halter, let me know!! They're in style right now, so I'm just hoping that someone has turned out a pattern for one recently.  Cheesy
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Teaching someone to knit on: April 13, 2006 02:53:00 PM
I made the mistake of taking my friend to the yarn shop with me. Actually, I thought she'd love it because she SWEARS she used to knit when she was younger. So, while we are in there and she sees everyone knitting (she was working on a cross-stitch pattern) she mentions how she'd LOVE to make a hat like mine (the kittyville hat, only without the ears). I used bamboo yarn and it IS really lovely.

Anyway, I offer to show her how as long as she buys what she needs. I figure, hey she used to knit, maybe at best I'll just have to show her how to knit in the round, or do seed stitch. OH NO!!

She doesn't even know how to knit the stitches!! >.< So, I show her how to cast on, how to knit...and purl...and so on. *sigh* She calls the stitches back (knit) and front (purl), based on where the yarn needs to be. lol I'm thinking to myself...I really wish she'd have let me show her how to do a garter stitch to keep the bottom from rolling. Hey, she said she was a fast learner.

Though...I am really proud of myself for making her want to knit. It may take some time, but I'm stubborn and will keep helping her (and taking her to those who know better when I can't) until she learns!
5  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / Moogle doll on: April 10, 2006 02:10:50 PM
Okay, so my husband is playing Kingdom Hearts 2 and their version of the moogles (from Final Fantasy) is super adorable!! I want to make it into a doll...errr stuffed toy. But I haven't the slightest idea as to how to get started!!! I was thinking of maybe knitting it and then fulling him to make him all fluffy. That might not work though since I'm a real newb knitter. Maybe I'll just adapt a sewing pattern....

This is what he looks like if you don't know...I think I'll start on some sketches tonight.  Cheesy
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Needle udder (image heavy) on: March 24, 2006 10:15:42 PM
 Grin I was very proud of myself after spending hours on this. The idea to put a second row of pockets in came from a thread in the SnB section. Since I didn't technically get this pattern from the SnB book, it doesn't belong there. And though I had to sew it, I couldn't really find a proper thread for this. So I'll just put it here where my fellow knitters (and cow lovers) can tell me what they think of it. Sorry about all of the pics. But I felt they were neccesary! It took me about 6 or 7 hours all told. Smiley But I haven't the slightest clue what to do with my leftover cow fleece.

Here it is all rolled up! Secured with two bands of elastic that I stitched cute little cow appliques to.

Close up of the embroidered "logo". It says shadkitty Knitty

The case laying open...to show my sparse collection of needles. (Hey I'm a beginner!)

And finally a snapshot of the cow applique that I stitched on to cover up the snap button. It was a real pain too!
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Knit dress from goodfellas? on: March 21, 2006 03:57:51 PM
I just saw Goodfellas the other day and Debi Mazar (sandy) was wearing this sexy red dress that looked like it could have been knit. It might not have been but I bet there is something similar out there. If there is anyone else who has seen this movie and might know what I'm talking about, help! When I locate a picture I'll post it. Because that might help.

For now I'll just describe it. It was about mid thigh length, sleeveless, kinda like a tank top. It looked a bit like large fishnet. But has a looser fit.
