1  My First Knitted Socks--and I LOVE 'Em! :-) in Knitting: Completed Projects by Quad Mom on: September 07, 2008 07:16:24 PM
I've knitted many things, but I've always thought that knitting socks was a waste of time.  I figured why put so much effort into knitting something that takes so much abuse (and sweat)?

Well, I've evolved as a knitter, and I am now a certified "sock-aholic"!  And the thing is...I don't want to get better!   Wink

2  Molly Headband In Cotton-Silk in Knitting: Completed Projects by Quad Mom on: July 30, 2008 11:20:46 PM
This is my favorite headband: I've made several in different yarns.  This yarn is dk weight, cascade cotton/silk blend...verrry soft!!

3  Slouchy Foliage in Knitting: Completed Projects by Quad Mom on: July 30, 2008 11:18:17 PM
From Knitty, I knit the Foliage hat with worsted Malabrigo and gave it some "slouch".  I love this hat!

4  My New Awesome Nano (3rd Generation) Cozy in Knitting: Completed Projects by Quad Mom on: July 28, 2008 04:20:38 PM
Okay. This sucker was a labor of love (emphasis on the "labor" part).  I made up the pattern (after several unsuccessful prototypes) as I went along.  Click on the thumb-nails for a larger photo.

This is what it started out like:

Here are the end results:

The back-side or "booty":

In contemplative repose:

I knit in Paton's wool (highly recommended for felting), applied iron-on appliques and a 30" knit i-cord.

5  My Furry Pink Natty in Knitting: Completed Projects by Quad Mom on: July 28, 2008 04:02:04 PM
I know.  It sounds a little NC-17, huh?  The below is Knit and Tonic's Natty

I used Jo Ann's Angel Hair yarn.  This is a GREAT pattern: especially if you're new to cables.

Check out my Ravelry notebook for more info: I'm Quad Mom there too!  Smiley

7  My Most "Favoritest" Headband Pattern Ever! in Knitting: Completed Projects by Quad Mom on: November 04, 2007 09:56:09 PM
I knit the free pattern, "Molly's Headband", from Interweave Knits: http://www.interweaveknits.com/freepatterns/pdf/sum_06/Sweet_Somethings.pdf.

I followed the pattern exactly, except that I used a worsted weight yarn, Paton's wool, on size 7 needles.  This pattern was fun and easy, and I love the results!  The headband molds perfectly to the head.  Word of caution: think twice before you use a worsted weight on size 7's.  This mod worked for me because my head is large (23.5" around).  If you have a smaller head, stick to the recommended yarn weight and needle size.

8  Better Late than Nevah Peeps! in Knitting: Completed Projects by Quad Mom on: October 28, 2007 12:17:32 AM
Okay...better late than never.  Here are a couple of scarves I started almost a year ago, and just finished up (yay for finishing what you've started! Wink)

I popped my "Noro-Cherry" with this Stitch 'n Bitch scarf pattern:

My kitty, Callie Jo, wanted in this frame:

Paton's Soy Stripes:

First successful fingerless mitts in the round--the thumb gussett was always a struggle for me, but I finally had success:

Thank you!!!

9  Re: The Beginner's Top-Down Raglan (patt. incl.)[opt. July-Aug. theme: Cables!] in Knitalongs by Quad Mom on: August 06, 2007 08:55:56 PM
Here's my status.  I seperated the sleeves and then tried it on...yaaaayyyyy!  It fits!  It fits!  I'm making a sweater!  I'm a "big-girl" knitter now!  I'm so glad to have finally gotten to the point where I can make a sweater.  I don't know why, but I've  always considered the ability to knit a sweater one of the crowning achievements of knitting (just my own silly, personal feeling!  Smiley)

I think I'm gonna knit just one wide, red stripe in the center of the sweater.

P.S.  Awesome progress, Derkhan!

I have been following this thread for awhile.  This is my first top-down raglan and thank you knittyknitter for an awesome pattern!  Here's the bit I've done so far (autumn colors--I'll have a couple of rusty red stripes in there as well):

I'm excited about this!!
