Here's the mug and shot glass that I made for my BIL.  His nickname is overkill, so I went with an a-bomb theme.

Thanks!

To make the bracelet, I used 28 gauge wire.  You just thread the beads on the wire and knit away.  I used one bead for each stitch I knit.  In the end I used size 8 wooden needles  and did 17 sts for about 5 or 6 rows of stockinette stitch. 

The difficult part for me was just knitting the wire because it's sooo different from yarn.  It has no stretch at all.

They both look fantastic, but I am really diggin' the skirt.  It's classy and sexy, but with an edge.  Love it!

I just finished a knit bracelet for my MIL.  It was my first time making knit jewelry and oy!  it was so much harder than I thought it would be  But I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out.  The hardest part was making it the right size.  I used up all my copper wire on attempts that turned out much too big, so the final has steel wire instead.  It was much stiffer and tougher to knit, but I like the color much better, so I think that in the end it was a good thing. 

What do you think?

*update, bracelet #2 finished for my mom.  It's pretty much the same as this first one.

Thanks for all the responses!!  After reading through them I decided to go with the plaid because the only flannel that I had was the animal pattern, the plaid and a blue one with frogs and ducks (Sorry, no penguins Smiley).  So plaid it is.  I also added some of the plaid to the cuffs and the waist band, so that it looks more integrated. 

What do you think?

Here's the jammies I made for my little bro.  I messed up making them, as you can see here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=139217.msg1367811#msg1367811, so I added the plaid side panels and then to bring in the color, I added the plaid to the cuffs and also on the inside of the waist band.  I used the same pattern that I used for the ones above, but made them smaller and again I added a snap to the fly.

Wisted?  Huh

Hi, Cinnamon! Wow, you have so many talents. This apron is cute! You should make one for yourself!

You could also modify it into a summer dress with an asymetrical hem, too!  Smiley

Hi Deanna,

www.wists.com is an site where you can make your own wish list from any picture/item on the internet (doesn't really work with flash sites, though.)  A lot of craftsters use them for swaps, to give their partners ideas.  It's a pretty cool concept. 

I think I might make an apron for myself once Christmas is over.  I should have enough fabric.  This pattern only takes about a yard (of the wide fabric anyways). 

I really appreciate the compliments Smiley.  I feel like such a bumbling novice when I sew Tongue.  My mom taught me when I was little, but I never really made anything more complex than jammies before.

My dad is an avid bird watcher and I cannot tell you how many hours I spent as a kid trying to find some little brown bird in a bush because it was the rare and endangered something.  Those little f***ers really piss me off.  I love this pic.  It makes me feel a little bit vindicated somehow.  Smiley

Now that I've made myself sound like a total nut job, I'd just like to say that I'm really diggin this picture.  You do really fantastic work.

I guess those anthropologie aprons do have a similar top.  I'm excited that I made mine without seeing their one first. Smiley  ($50?!?  I can't believe how much some people will pay for their stuff!)

Oh, and I got the fabric from Ikea.
