31  A comforting scarf and bunny in Knitting: Completed Projects by Lizzle on: November 01, 2006 03:48:03 PM
So this weekend it got a little chilly (for SoCal) and I was inspired to take up my  knitting needles again.
I made a scarf for my friend, Jess, because she was a little stressed out and sent it to her a few days ago.
The pattern is based on one from the forums here.  I modified it to be less-wide because I didn't have quite as much yarn as it called for.  The original pattern is here. http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=127077.0

This is what it looked like in the end (a close-up, so you can see detail.)
I also knit a tiny bunny based on a pattern from www.heartstringsfib erarts.com.  It is for my nephew.  The bunny in the example was pink and fuzzy, but my brother is vehemently oppsed to giving his son anything "girly" (Silly, I know!), so I  made this bunny blue and manly.  It was really simple and quick.  Unfortunately, it also looks sort of like an armadillo.

I hope he likes it anyway!

32  Pregnant Costume in Halloween Costumes by Lizzle on: November 01, 2006 03:39:25 PM
So mine was really simple, and I'm not sure if it counts or not.  If it doesn't feel free to take this down!
For Halloween, I was pregnant.  I'm away at college and, as such, haven't seen my parents for a few months.  They were a little freaked out when I sent them the pictures.  Good thing it was just a costume!
My roommate and I were talking about how silly it is that all the girls on campus dress up pretty trashy to try and impress the frat boys, so I tried to think up the costume with the least frat appeal possible.

It was pretty simple. I used fold-over yoga pants, rolled up a small towel (larger than a hand towel, but smaller than a beach towel or bath sheet) and put it in the waist of the yoga pants (without folding the top over.)  This held it in pretty well and then I just put on a normal top over it.
We had a few little trick or treaters come to our house last night and a couple of them asked whether my belly was real or not, so even though it was a little lumpy, I guess it passed their tests.
Happy Halloween everyone!
