1  Hooded Poncho for baby in Knitting: Completed Projects by shae16 on: September 11, 2007 07:37:17 PM
I finished this super easy poncho just in time for jacket weather!

Action shot:

The hood, kind of... she doesn't like hats...


The pattern is Lion brand and can be found here: http://cache.lionbrand.com/cgi-bin/patternFinder.fcgi?search=Search&searchText=cotton+ease+poncho

I used the Cotton Ease in Lake, and it took just under 2 skeins.

2  More Saartje's Booties in Knitting: Completed Projects by shae16 on: September 11, 2007 07:25:26 PM
Ok so I totally fell in love with these booties, but the only baby I have to make them for is a boy. I know, most everyone thinks they are too feminine for a handsome baby boy, but I think I made them as manly as possible...

Yarn: Koigu Handpaint fingering weight
Needles: US size 3
Buttons: Little wood buttons from JoAnn's

I think the straps on the booties make them so practical, they won't just slip off baby's tiny foot.

4  Sister hats in Knitting: Completed Projects by shae16 on: September 02, 2007 10:24:42 AM
My mom had asked me to make a baby hat for a gal she works with, she also requested a matching hat for the big sister...

Both hats:

"Big sister" hat, modeled my DD:

Yarn:  Plymouth Encore Worsted (I wanted them to be washable)
Needles: Clover Bamboo size 8 for big sister, size 7 for baby sister
Patterns: Hat- http://heyjulie.blogspot.com/2006/08/cabled-baby-hats.html
Flowers- http://www.headhuggers.org/patterns/flower02k.htm
Mods:  I knit the baby hat on size 7 to make the fabric a little more snug, I also added a few cable repeats for length.  For the bigger hat, I added 2 more cables, and several cable repeats for width and length.
I picked up the buttons at my local JoAnn's.

5  Re: Altoid Tin Theme Swap Round 7 Gallery in The Swap Gallery by shae16 on: August 13, 2007 08:03:13 PM
I received my tin today, and it is FABULOUS!  I was secretly crossing my fingers and toes that my swap partner aka puppybreath would choose this theme! 

I now present the ever elegant Victorian...

Handknit pouch with brooch button, tag with note, and darling tea kettle charm:




I didn't get a good picture of the inside, it is lined with pretty paper, and has a brooch like the pouch, and some little golden butterflies.
She also included some star stickers (another theme I had picked), and some treats!
I love my tin puppybreath!! This afternoon was like Christmas morning, I was all giddy when I found this in my mailbox!  Thank you!  And now I am definitely addicted to swapping!!

WAH HOO!!! I finally finished mine! I started last December, and then I started a new job and had much less time for knitting.  I finally pulled this out of the corner, and I could not be happier that it is done!


Larger shot:

I used Knit Picks Andean Silk Twist in Dapper, and loved it until my last two balls had some strange dye change right in the middle, UGH!, but I was not going to stop for anything!  I used the recommended size 8 needles, and followed the pattern exactly.  I LOVE IT!!  Now if only it wasn't 102 degrees out...

I finally finished mine, and my daughter couldn't wait to wear it.  I used the Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece in Pink a Boo and a berry red (I can't remember the name, too lazy to go downstairs and find out).  I added an inch and a half to the length, and eliminated the back ruffle all together (thanks woohag!!).  I need to adjust the straps as they are a little too long, but my darling daughter insisted on wearing it to school today anyway...

8  "The Queen's Cache" Glam Geocache in Completed Projects by shae16 on: February 19, 2007 11:04:52 AM
My mom and I are avid hikers, and started geocaching a couple of years ago.  When I was totally stumped on what to get her for her birthday I finally came up with this totally Glam geocache!!  She's always been "The Queen", so I used that for my inspiration. It is made out of an ammo can that I got at the Army surplus store, and its all glammed up with mod-podge scrapbook paper and stickers, as well as rhinestones and buttons. She totally loved it!!! We can't wait until the spring thaw to go place it!! I packed it full of hiking related trade items, as well as a couple of queenish items (a tiara, a glittery wand, etc.).

I have been using Andean Silk Twist on my slow going clap, but I love the colors.  The yarn is super soft, the stitches are a little sticky to drop, but I think it's worth it.  And I love that it's totally affordable.
