I love these mitts! The pattern is easy to follow and they knit up quick because of the chunky yarn. So warm and comfy, perfect for cold winter days!

3  Evening Shell from Twinkles Big City Knits in Knitting: Completed Projects by nearfantastica on: July 01, 2008 05:23:40 PM
At last it's finished!





This is the long version of the evening shell, which is suppose to be a dress, but fits more like a tunic. The pattern is messed up, the cable pattern is written for flat knitting instead of circular. So you'll have to be creative. You can find errata on my raverly http://www.ravelry.com/projects/postscriptlove/evening-shell

4  Bulky Blue Cabled Sweater in Knitting: Completed Projects by nearfantastica on: March 12, 2008 02:58:09 PM
Here it is... fresh off the needles!










Pattern: Bulky Cabled Sweater from glampyreknits.com
Yarn: Lady Fair Klondike Chunky by Eaton (vintage yarn)
Needles: Size 11 & 10.5 US circulars

This is the Bulky Cabled Sweater from Glampyre Knits, it took me about a week of knitting, less if I werent doing other things. I love the gratification when knitting with chunky yarns, almost like an instant FO! I completely recommend this pattern, its easy enough to follow, basic cables make this top down raglan more interesting! I did have to extend the length of the body and sleeves because my gauge was off, also because of the length of the body I had to make more button holes.

Thanks for looking!

5  Floral Heart Raglan in Knitting: Completed Projects by nearfantastica on: February 27, 2008 08:48:52 AM
Here is my top down raglan I completed!


Detail of the embroidery




Pattern: Top Down Baby Sweater Raglanhttp://www.knittingonthenet.com/patterns/babysweragcard.htm
Yarn: Bernat Soy Natural Blends in Oatmeal
Needles: Size 5 & 6 circulars

This was a nice and simple pattern! I added embroidery to the front panels for some extra interest and some cute little buttons.  My sweater turned out a little bigger than the pattern because I didn't have the suggested needle size.

Thanks for looking!!!

6  Pi topper slouch hat in Knitting: Completed Projects by nearfantastica on: January 04, 2008 12:59:01 PM
Hey everyone,

Here are some pictures of the pi topper hat that I've been meaning to share with you.







Pattern: <a href="http://www.elann.com/ShowFreePattern.asp?Id=182024">Pi Topper Chemo Hat</a>
Yarn: Patons Astra in Dark Denim
Needles: US 7 dpn's and 16'' circular

Easy top down construction, and a well written pattern.
I think my hat turned out a little slouchy, more so than other versions I've seen on <a href="http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/pi-topper-chemo-cap">Ravelry</a>, but I like slouchy hats so I guess this turned out in my favor after all.

Thanks for looking!

8  Twiggy Bobble Hat in Knitting: Completed Projects by nearfantastica on: August 30, 2007 10:42:44 AM
I've been meaning to make myself a hat now that fall is just around the corner, just never found a pattern I liked. So I saw Sandra's version on Ravelry & flickr http://www.flickr.com/photos/58808335@N00/298399059 and I liked it, so I decided to give it a go. I started yesterday and finished today! It's not as slouchy as Sandra's but I like it anyways.

Pattern: Twiggy Bobble Hat www.spunmag.com/article/051229bobblehat
Yarn: Sirdar Country Style
Needles: US 6 circular and dpn's

*Note* There are corrections to this pattern found on Andrea Tung's blog found here:

10  Log Cabin Socks from handknit Holidays in Knitting: Completed Projects by nearfantastica on: July 10, 2007 10:05:04 AM
Hello everyone,

Here are some pictures and info on the socks I knitted.

Pattern: Log Cabin Socks from handknit Holidays.
Yarn: Acrylic yarn in grey
Needles:US 5







I started these socks way, way back in December, and only finished them now. Too bad it's like 90 degrees outside right now. Let's just say I won't be wearing these for awhile.

These socks are a relatively easy knit, and I throughly enjoyed this pattern. I did however make some minor mistakes on the cable pattern, but they're not that noticeable.

Thanks for looking!
