Hahaha Dulcet, I bet you say that to all the girls  Wink The next pair are sparkly and almost finished  Smiley



Changed things slightly for the next two pairs, I extended them to make them high waisted and added a thick lace waistband. The gold glitter ones I keep calling my "Diana Dors drawers"  Grin Grin Grin Diana Dors was the UK answer to Marilyn Monroe.

K-starr -- do you have a particular pattern for those?

I finally tried out the pineapple hat from Maria Merlino. http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=421590.0#axzz2T7r8OFUX  It doesn't take a lot of yarn, and just a bit over an hour to complete.



So I made a few for a fund-raising auction coming up this weekend.  I made one with smaller yarn and hook, but now I'm not sure what size to call it.  I'm going to have to accost a neighbor with a baby so I can figure out if it's newborn or toddler or what.   Smiley

Made myself a new pincushion yesterday http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=418274.msg5035412#msg5035412 It was a doll body that went wrong and I didn't want to just toss it away. The jar is usable still.

Todays crafting has been hit & miss. I made good progress on a swap item but my sudden bright idea to make shapewear didn't work out as well  Undecided I had a piece of powernet in my stash so I thought I could make some panties with tummy control. I don't think I made the powernet front small enough to make the best use of the hold-it-all-in power. I guess I can unpick the stitching and recut the piece smaller but it just feels like failure and I don't want to wear failure panties  Roll Eyes

I have not sewn since before the baby was born, over a year now. But finally he will play nicely at my feet while I sew, so I have gotten a few things done. My MIL gave me her entire quilting stash and I am slowly but surely finishing the tops on some of them. Some are going to be hippie dresses.

The pirate hat was wonderful and it was a great first project for the NERDS Games!

I also like the pineapple hat...dulcet, there is a chart I believe on the Martha Stewart website that lits typical hat sizes...I use it all the time for those "mystery" hats I knit or crochet and don't have a real head for a model! Grin

K-Star--love your panties! ha...let me know if you work out your homemade spanx...I have tons of that powernet and I still can't figure out how to sew it so it works properly!

I joined the sweat shop swap and I am plowing through a ton of cotton yarn this weekend by making cotton slouchy beanies. Smiley
