1  Make it work! in Stenciling: Completed Projects by Tucker104 on: February 22, 2008 01:36:24 PM
Still too new to post pics, so here's my own personal god in flickr form. Mr. Tim Gunn, folks.

I made the stencil with some old contact paper we had stashed in a drawer, my trusty Xacto, and fabric paint from Michaels. Whatdathink? Is he recognizable?

2  Cardigan and pullover in Knitting: Completed Projects by Tucker104 on: February 11, 2008 12:57:00 PM
The red one is my own design, although when I finished I realized it looks a lot like Arwen from IK, and that if I had followed that pattern, it might've been a helluva lot easier.

I used Knitpicks Merino Style in Maple Leaf. I love this yarn; it was so fabulous to knit with and really makes the cabling pop.

The purple is a highly modified version of the placed cable aran from IK Fall 07. I worked it in the round from the bottom up, then worked the front and back cabling. I skipped the cowl type collar altogether, and instead of knitting flat and sewing the sleeves on, I just picked up stitches evenly around the sleeve openings and knit straight down with no decreases for a flare. I used Red Heart Soft Yarn, and this yarn is so surprisingly soft after you wash the sweater that I'll definitely use it again.

3  Bubble pullover from Knitting Nature (first post) in Knitting: Completed Projects by Tucker104 on: December 25, 2007 11:35:25 AM
I've been knitting for about 2 years, and this is my absolute favorite knit. Yeah, it's probably not the most flattering, but it's so incredibly comfy and it was super fun to make. That's my darling kiddo horking down something in the background.
The yarn was some old cotton ease in bubble gum pink that I don't think is available anymore. I wish the colors were still this bright, but it's one of my favorite yarns to work with. I'm still a newbie, so here's the link. Thanks for looking!
