I'm kind of lazy about starting new threads. Smiley  Newest in new post.

Flower hat based on Eugenia Kim's flower hat.  
Very few people can afford the $180.00+ USD price tag.  I reproduced it on paper and by trial and error.  Ran out of yarn, so it is currently just the part in the round.

You can see the decreases changed the number of 'petals' per flower.

Hugging cable attempt #1 (Valentine's Day):
(why you shouldn't use unblockable yarn)


Stapled. Tongue

Obviously has some kinks for me to think about.

My sister's birthday present is based on http://www.berroco.com/exclusives/brea/brea.html and a modification idea I got from the brea knitalong (I-cord handles knitted straight, then braided when long enough).  Done with Plymouth Yarn's Encore (75% acrylic, 25% wool) on US 9s for the most part.  Did the I-cords on 8s because that was the closest size I had on circs (doing 3 cords on straights would not have gone as quickly!).  I made the bottom wider (20 sts instead of 12) with 3 threads held together so I could make the I-cords directly attached to the bottom.

zipper and decorative buttons
interior lined with plastic gird to give the bottom support & shape.

Socks based on http://slippedstitch.blogspot.com/2005_10_01_slippedstitch_archive.html.  Added a heart and reversed the illusion colors on the second sock. 100% acrylic worsted weight on US 3 dpns (couldn't justify doing my first socks on nice yarn).

Sweater loosely based on a free pattern I got at Hancock Fabrics http://cache.lionbrand.com/graphics/patterns/khs-hoodedSweaterThumbnail.jpg.  No hood; new neckline. Smiley  My second sweater. Knit up really quickly.  (The first sweater I knit turned out too big & I got some ideas about making a different pattern, so it's been frogged. :-P)  Third pic is more true to color (second was in mirror, colors were wonky, but only way to get an action shot).  Used Moda Dea Swirl, Happy on 7s and 10.5s.

I found the http://wendyjohnson.net/blog/sockpattern.htm or http://knitty.com/issuesummer06/pattuniversalsock.html really easy to follow once you learn how to wrap & turn.

From the book, Alterknits, the Antoinette squares cap!

front http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v288/j4782/I%20knit%20it/antoinettefront.jpg
back http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v288/j4782/I%20knit%20it/antoinetteback.jpg
side http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v288/j4782/I%20knit%20it/antoinettesquareshat.jpg

Pattern called for 6 squares, I think? Either my head is significantly smaller or my crochet (hey, it's my first complicated work with the hook) is just too wonky or the yarn is wonky (it's goofy handspun, first I've ever gotten. Gets thick & thin, sometimes twisted tight, others barely twisted--blech! I have 3+ skeins left, methinks).  I used 5 squares, and fiddled with the pick ups and knitting part.  I borrowed my book from the library, and it's back on the shelf, so I forget what their FO looks like.

End of HP Swap pics here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/knittinfiasco/.  Armwamers so far, more knitted items to come!

This pattern is from Magknits, under their archives, Milanese lace (from the Barbara Walker Treasuries).  Modification details on my blog.

Simple Knitted Bodice with modifications.  I've finally gotten time to finish my UFOs.
