1  My own Anthropologie-inspired capelet in Knitting: Completed Projects by silverfisch on: February 13, 2010 01:19:22 PM
Some years ago, this pattern became a great success and everybody was knitting their capelets. I was so sad, because I had no clue how to knit a stitch  Tongue

I finally learnt how to knit, and it was only logical that I came back to this pattern and made myself one  Wink I made it with two yarn balls a good friend gave to me a year ago, a merino/acrylic blend. I knitted it on 7mm needles

one of my cats helped me wind up the yarn

getting into shape!

new use for cable ties, lol

and a couple of action pictures Grin I decided to close it in the lower part instead of the neck, I'm waiting for a brooch from etsy to put there. it feels so warm!

2  Candle Flame Cowl - my first knit! :D in Knitting: Completed Projects by silverfisch on: February 10, 2010 05:30:51 AM
I learnt to knit because I always need something on my neck , and crocheted stuff wasn't really working for my tastes. Up to now I had only knit hats and scarfs for my dolls, but finally I took the step and made a cowl for the last cold days of winter

I used this pattern I found on Ravelry and, though I messed up in many places (which I have strategically placed in the back for the pictures), I'm quite happy with how it turned out. It's made in some Caron I had in my stash and knitted on 5mm dpns. It's so soft and warm!  Cheesy

And about to go to the street.

I feel so proud! I knit something I can actually wear  Grin

hey, I made one!  Grin I'm fairly new to knitting and I have used dpns, but to make tubes... I was scared to make a hat or a sock, mainly because I feared how to close the gap on dpns  Tongue then I saw your little tutorial... and I had to try it!

I made a hat for my doll, I simply used sock yarn on 3mm dpns without resizing the pattern. it worked like a charm and I am SO very please I actually made something I like! I messed a couple of times and rows, but nothing too noticeable for me

the hat

on my doll

and how it looks from the back side, in case somebody is wondering!

I can't thank you enough for posting this!

my picture is not as pretty as yours (I love all the apples inside!), I took it as I came back from the supermarket. I should have casted off with a bigger needle so that the mouth of the bag was more elastic and bigger, but it fits so many things inside anyway!

I was thinking about starting a KAL for this bag, so we could help other people facing the stitches. hmmm, I'll think about it again when I start the next one

I've never knitted anything in my life, but if I did, I would probably try it on every 5 minutes Smiley
I love the color, btw. Smiley

that's what I've been doing  Wink

my raglan is slowly growing... I have sleeve holes!! I'm so excited  Tongue I am trying to make it a bit loose, as I like jumpers. I fear sleeves and dpns, though...

yai!!  Grin

still a loooooooong way to go...

Lyndiiloo, I love your fillers!

I finally got around to making my february square, and it came out! I left out the last round and added 6 dc on the sides to make the square the same odd measure of my others

it was hard work, but I am pleased with how it came out  Smiley

I made a filler! I tried to make the dreamcatcher, but failed miserably 4 times, so I took another pattern. I like how this one turned out

I'm terribly happy that it came out the same size!! *dances*

now no more squares until february
