and......DING DING DING  Post 1120 is a random post winner!!!!!!!!!!!!

Wheee! Thanks AMIR!

And thank you everyone for the complements on the gloves. I bought the pattern last year, with the intent of making a pair for her last birthday, but decided my knitting skills weren't up to par, because bobbles are scary. Nothing much had improved on the knitting front, but I figured what the hey, I'll YouTube the bits I don't know, and if they turn out messy I'll sell them, or worst case scenario frog them. I even altered the pattern a bit - not because I didn't want to attempt stranded colorwork, but because I liked the look of the "vents" someone else had posted on Ravelry better.

That grey stitch across the black vent section at the top is just a slipped stitch! I just learned about slipping stitches for the edge on my Doctor scarf, but I was stunned and just a little bit excited to realise you could use it across two rows like that to avoid colorwork - so exciting!

Great work everyone.  I still can't keep up enough to comment on everything, but I am loving what you are all making.  And inspired as always. 

One I can finally share.  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=420588.0

So much stuff to catch up on!  And so little time!  Unfortunately, I am losing my internet access at work.  Perhaps not losing, but gaining a new layer of supervision inspecting my web travels.  While my boss doesnt care about my logging onto Craftster at work, his boss might!  Since I dont have computer service at home, it means Ill be checking in a lot less frequently.  But I plan to keep up!  Heres a few pictures of some of my projects.

This is a bad picture of the three pairs of flannel pajamas I made last month. 


One of the challenges I want to take on this year is sewing clothing.  I started with just about the most rudimentary kind of pattern I could think of and still realized how much I need to learn.  Still, theyre nice and warm even if I could fit have my family in the first pair.  (Honestly, its more like a flannel tent tied around my waist!)

5. Felted scorpion hats
A million years after every other knitter out there, I discovered felting wool.  My attempt to make a Christmas hat for a co-worker was less than successful.  (Hint: I was not trying to make a top hat.)


I tried again, using a slip-stitch mosaic pattern of a scorpion from Barbara Walker, and produced two versions.  He claimed them both.  (Indoor and outdoor, doncha know!)


6. More felted hats
Emboldened by my success and the number of patterns in Walkers book I wanted to try out I produced a few more felted caps.

But I was hyper-critical of those, and didnt feel they were good enough to give to some of my favorite fellow Capricorns, so I quickly whipped up.

7. Emergency hats

Which they pronounced good, and wore them throughout dinner.  Which was capped off with.

8.  Birthday cake!

Three layer peppermint chocolate cake, separated by layers of whipped cream, and frosted with a chocolate ganache that required one pound of chocolate.  Its a good thing.  I also made spiced nuts: lime cashews, lemon-chili peanuts, and cumin pepitas for nibbles.

But its not all decadent food.
9. Homemade yoghurt

The cost of Greek yoghurt is going down; I saw a 32-ounce container of plain Chobani on sale for $5 at the store last week.  Still, I get almost 3 quarts of Greek yoghurt for a $2.50 gallon of milk and I think it tastes much, much better.  (And, having it on hand encourages me to eat a lot more of it!)

Ive got a couple more projects partly finished, and I can tell the sap is rising Ive got all sorts of crazy ideas and not enough time in the day.

I love seeing what everybody is doing!

Inspiration without application is moot.

Wow, such awesome hats yofi! They are ALL incredible.

And isn't yogurt the easiest thing to make ever? Plus the taste can't be beat. Yum.

Thanks!

(I confess, I wear it sometimes.  Makes me feel a little like a demented Cat-in-the-Hat character....)

The hats are fantasic and that necklace rocks!

Underthemountain--I meant to ask what yarn you used for your bags---did you double up the yarn like the pattern says?  I love the bag but was not sure what the yarn was that was used in the pattern...I want to make a few of them for spring market shopping! Cheesy

It's cotton yarn maybe Bernat?  I bought it in the summer when they bring out the fun colors.  Yes, I doubled it up.  I think if you don't that it won't be strong enough.  It is a really nice bag.  I'm thinking of making one for me with all the leftovers.  LOL.
