Just a few FO's for you guys to peek at:

The Bourne Supremacy Scarf:
This is currently blocking to be a bit shorter right now, but it really came out great. The photos make it look a bit nubblier than it really is for some reason. Done in 1x1 rib on size 11's using Berroco Medley in the Damariscotta colorway.

And a closeup:

A toddler poncho for my little niece's b-day:
Knit with Plymouth Encore Mega from this pattern.

And finally Knitty's Haiku for the same niece, knit with Berroco Lullaby in the Willy Winky colorway (heh heh heh....I said willy.....heh heh heh) with little bug buttons.

Aahhh!  I'm so glad to see the scarf finished.  It's lovely!  My friend in West Hollywood, who claims that scarves are SO in there because that's all you need in winter, is dying for me to knit her up some super-cool scarves, and, bless her heart, she LOVES my creativity, but she ALSO loves star-watching, and how much would I rock if I made her something like this (in addition to some of my very own lovelies)?

The toddler items are adorable.  Now that I've cut my teeth on a cute little newborn sweater for my friend, I might be up for making my own child something.  I've already made her a poncho, which I quite like, and it's my own design, so I suppose I should get around to showing you guys pics sometime.  (First I have to get her to sit still long enough!)  Something with some shape might be nice.  I'm considering modifying an existing sweater pattern of the right size into a kimono style.  Maybe these cuties will be my inspiration. 

(As an aside, my friend LOVED the sweater and hat I knitted her, and they were my third and fourth compelted knitting projects, so I was quite proud of them myself.  Another of her friends is a much more experienced knitter, and her little baby hoodie was far more impressive than my little sweater, but I was amazed at how well-received my things were.  The other knitter gave me SUCH a great compliment:  "This is only your third project?!?  Your seems are BEAUTIFUL!  Baby boy Spivey was born last night via C-Section, and mum looks forward to dressing him up in all his cute new duds!) 

Again, Ren, so nice!  As long as you all keep knitting, so will I, so keep it up!

It's about 10" wide and took me 6 balls of yarn (5 for the scarf, 1 for the fringe). I ended up a little pricier than I had initially intended, but considering I live in Maine where it will definitely get worn, I figure it's worth it.

Oh, I thought by hearing you and Boo talk about how frustrating it was making this scarf, I would be able to resist the temptation to make one of my own.  But now that I've seen how pretty the result is, I am *this* close to ordering that yarn.  Must resist...

Great job on everything.

tofuthief - DO IT!!!!!   It is a bit tough to work with but worth it and you get the added bonus of feeling like a real knittting bad ass for taking on a project you know is tedious and can be tough.

hi ren-girl and everyone else involved in the bourne supremacy scarf discussion!

i am new to craftster, and frankly - only joined b/c i have a question about this scarf!  (i just bought four balls of berroco/medly in the fruity color... Grin yay!)

rengirl, how did you finish off this scarf? you got the fringe perfect -- how did you tie it all together at the ends?

i am totally starting this scarf tonight!  45 stitches at k1p1 - wahoo!
thank you ladies...

when i saw the movie, i fell in LOVE with that scarf, but couldn't find any instructions on how to make it.  then i was just poking around today, deciding that i am broke and don't need to buy anymore anything and i see THIS!!!!! great job!  i remember it being a dark navy from the movie, but then i also remembered julia stiles' hair being dark brown. after seeing those pics posted by Lothruin, i realized i must have been in an awfully old/worn down theater with a bad screen!!!

great jobs on the scarves. how many stitches did you end up casting onto size 11s?

It may be a bit repetitive, but it makes for a great "mindless" project to do while watching tv (this one took the Lord of the Rings trilogy and the Star Wars trilogy to complete).

tofu - boo is right, you should just do it.....if for no other reason that ribbed things are great exercises in perfecting knitting basics.

punch - it's done with one whole ball of yarn cut into about 14" lengths then divided into 12 piles (6 for each end). I just used a crochet hook to pull the tassels through the bottom rows of yarn at even intervals (I just re-read that sentence, does it even make sense?) It's just like the first two diagrams here. It's not quite as fringy as the one in the movie, but it was all the fringe I could afford.

leblanfo - I ended up casting on 37 stitches, I believe.....I wanted it to be pretty wide.

Just a word of warning to anyone who's finished with it....the Medley felts really really easily so watch out when blocking....one end of my scarf is a bit fuzzier than I had intended.

OK, I give in!  (It didn't take much convincing.)  I'm estimating that it will take me about two seasons of Buffy the Vampire Slayer to finish.   Wink

How is everyone else doing with her scarf?

Yup, I'm gonna second that query.

Ren, that scarf is beeyootimus.  I really liked it when I saw the movie too, but I didn't think I'd actually make it (what with the years-long project docket)...now...well...no! No! I am too broke!  *scribbles the yarn on her Christmas list*

Boo, I can't wait to see yours.

It's actually a vintage Dritz dressform that my mother-in-law gave me. It has snaps up the front and is made of a bendable wire mesh. Basically you put it on like a long vest and have someone mold the mesh to your body shape then unsnap it and put it on the stand. It's far-and-away the best dressform I've ever had. I do period clothing so I'm able to put a corset on it and fit the gowns to that "unusually altered" shape.

Plus it looks damn cool dressed in the chainmaille bikini I have on it!

Thank you Pixie. Luckily the Haiku was warmly received by the intended recipient (meaning she didn't try to tear it off like most of her clothing Wink )
