*phew* i FINALLY got my camera working again!  so here are some projects i've done, inspired by this lovely message board, of course...

green armwarmers
http://www.columbia.edu/~gjs92/green.jpg
made these for my friend kat from two types of sock yarn i had around.  the second one started striping, which i totally wished happened in the first one.  *sigh*  o well.  

skully wrist/handwarmers
http://www.columbia.edu/~gjs92/skullys.jpg
i started an intarsia/fairisle knitting class and was a big nerd about it so i practiced!  totally inspired by the skully wristwarmers here, i made mine because its damn cold in my basement office.

and lastly...

the most awesomest (and posted waaaaay too late, i know... but that's because i just found this website) christmas ornament in the whole entire world...

Grin the Jessica Simpson 'nelly' hat tribute! Grin

i totally forgot i did this project, but my friend reminded me with pics from her christmas party!  it was a tree trimming party, and i thought what better to represent me but making a smaller version of one of my favorite patterns?  last minute, i thought it would be awesome to stick someone's face in it so a friend found Jessica Simpson, pasted it onto some card stock, stuffed the finished hat with cotton balls and secured the pic in place!  definite scrap yarn project (which i posted asking about, duh) for next year!   Tongue

Very nice!! I especially like the green ones. How did you do the thumbholes? Did you just leave a slit, or did you do a button hole?

the green ones were done on double pointed needles and knitted in the round.  i got to the point where i wanted the hole for the thumb, and instead of continuing in the circle i turned it over to start knitting flat.  knit flat for about 1.5 in, then continue to knit in the round until you reach the desired length.  Smiley
