21  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: two knitted hats on: November 30, 2007 09:16:34 PM
Thanks guys.

I don't really have a pattern for this. But I'll try. Basically I'm sharing what I learned at my "purl and hurl" knitting group. And I'm not good with patterns anyway.

I cast on 84 stitches as that seems to be the size that fits me best. I used size 7 circular needles  (I've never done a gauge swatch in my life so I can't tell you how that works... I just know when I knit on 8 it's too big on me but perfect fit for my friend!) And then for these hats I seed stitched for about an inch 1/2 to two inches. Ribbed looks good too if you want to try that. But the pictures above show seed stitch. Then switched to stockinette stitch. I had stitch markers every 12 stitches. And after about 3 to 4 inches started decreasing before each stitch marker till there was 7 stitches left. Break off a tail, thread through the 7 stitches and pull firmly and draw though to the inside of the hat. I'm not very good at that part yet if you look at the green hat you can kind of tell.  Undecided I hope that is easy enough to follow. I'm a complete dummy when it comes to patterns.

my gosh they look amazing. My first needle felt project was an attempt at a flower... it looks like a colored hair ball. Sad

I love yours.

I did mine last night in SWS natural snow cause I wanted one that would go with almost anything. I used a wooden button.

I love SWS. I can't get enough of this yarn. The colors are amazing. I think this is my 4th project I used this yarn for. And the self striping ones make amazing color ways.

28  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Re: Tetris Costumes--dang--if only I thought of that... on: October 30, 2007 06:03:16 AM
so that is what it would of looked like. At work each department picks a theme and dresses up as that theme. Our department theme is classic video games. I had suggest tetris, however everyone said it would be too hard to work in a box costume. so we have one cubical group going as mario bro. my cubical group doing pac man, and another is doing duck hunt. Now that i've see what the tetris looks like I wish I could of pushed more for the tetris. Oh well.

I have a asl shirt that says, "if you can read this lets talk". However mine I got at a thrift store. And I've been wearing it for 7 years so it's all thin vintage shirt feeling.

I don't get your bragging rights though when everyone tells you how awesome your shirt is you get to say, "thanks I made it."
