Great stuff.  I love the trinity hat, I'm inspired to make one now!

I found this thread here and thought I'd post pictures of mine...it's been finished a while.  I finally put a button on.  It's getting really cold here but I almost want to keep my putting my daughter in this because I made the whole thing for her.  She doesn't mind that one sleeve is kinda longer than the other.  It's cute.  I used very soft and fuzzy cloud 9 yarn.  In only 5 colors.
It's a little small and she's only not even two yet so it won't fit for long!  darn!

3  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / FINALL Y! handmade boy shirts you can wear and not get beat up for on: November 12, 2007 07:24:57 PM
After months of biting your style (all you lovely sew crafty craftsters) and making loads of cheytown dresses and vegbee imitations for my little girls as my son sadly looked on...FINALLY I have come up with something wear-able for him.  I found star wars sheets, batman sheets, pokemon sheets, captain planet sheets but how can I make a whole shirt?  that would involve collars, sleeves, hems...complicated stuff that's WAY beyond me and my refusal to measure or use an iron. So...
the girls had darth vader dresses and in a guilt ridden moment I just appliqud on a character to one of his plain shirts.  TA DA.  major increase in the cool factor.

This is the Captain Planet one.  I don't even exactly know who Captain Planet is

ACK!  I just went back to read ALL the replies (guess one should do that BEFORE casting on...) and I see that it's a 'baby weight'.  This is awful...I may have to leave my house and purchase more yarn...and wait like 20 extra minutes before starting this project.  Is there ANY way I can do this with a sport-weight yarn?  Will it look terrible?

When I saw this i instantly forgot all about the pasta i was boiling- jumped upstairs to grab some yarn and knitting needles.  Smells a little smoky now but I've cast on.
Is this gauge right?  What weight yarn did you use?  I think the yarn I have is sportweight-ish.  (New to knitting).  But when I cast on 30 and knit a few rows it's like 10 inches long...rather than 4. 
Help! I must have this hat for my son and then one for my hubby too, maybe for my daughters and myself if i get REALLY good.

What do you think of this:  Adding a fancy-ish ribbing from the Over the Edge book?  I've never altered a pattern before but this is for a little girl so it really can't be gaudy enough...you know how 4 year old girls are!
Has anyone tried doing an interesting edging?

ooh!  i'm admiring the lacy version- if I get good I could make one for myself!

ALRIGHTY THEN!  I did it, i did it, i did it!  Hooray for me!  After 300 views of the technique on knittinghelp.com and 3 days I've figured it out.  I'm up to the k6 YO round and i am looking forward to my circs!
what about fewer color changes?  i have 5 colors.  should i just eyball it?  or switch every 14 rows?  anyone have a good estimate?  it's a kid-size....so if i had 7 colors i'd switch every 10 rows.
thanks for the encouragement...it worked!

EEEk!  I'm STILL stuck on this knitting with 4 needles start off.  I'm getting better each time but it's SOO tricky and always ends up with some strands reaching across and doesn't look right.  I'm usually not-too-picky so I'm sure to get it to a tolerable base at some point.  I just want to get on my circulars right away- I think I'll be alright from there!
prettyfloral-my colors are nothing special but it's for my daughters (hopefully I can make two) one is 6 and in love with anything that is tackily pink and purple, my other daughter is 1 1/2 and wants whatever her sister has.  There's also an ugly yellow color because I had an orange on my wish list to tie in but the orange was sold out.  it's nice and soft though- Cascade Yarns cloud 9, wool/angora
Maybe I'll figure this out this afternoon but it's rainy so I might have to spend the time playing chess and candyland...ack!

Alright, my yarn just arrived.  Well, most of it.  2 colors were a no-show because i always order from the discount list and then it's never ALL available...does this happen to anyone else EVERY TIME THEY ORDER YARN. ugh. oh well, there's enough of the other sweaters to do a 5 color sweater instead.  this is my first time ever using more than one color in a sweater so i suppose it's better to minimize the number of color changes in case i don't catch on right away.
also, my first time knitting with 3 needles to start a small circle.  we'll see how it goes.  i'll cast on in a minute.
