1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: Aviator Hat and 2 Scarves (7 pics) on: January 22, 2008 10:44:01 AM
These are great! I especially like the hat... when I saw the first one, I wasn't sure I liked it, but the one you did on smaller needles looks awesome! It fits you just perfectly! I might try to make one of these for myself.

Great work!
When I did the one on size 7 needles I wasn't too happy either, but I couldn't bring myself to frog it! lol

I love that hat!
Thank You! Smiley

What a great first FO!  I really love your color choices for the striped scarf.  I've been looking for neon yellow yarn like that for awhile.  It just looks so bright and happy with the red/pink colorway.
Thanks, I really love the brightness of it, too! Smiley
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Aviator Hat and 2 Scarves (7 pics) on: January 19, 2008 04:51:42 AM
Hello Everyone!

I know about a million craftsters have done the aviator cap but I wanted to make it too! Smiley
I actually made this hat about 3 times because the pattern (found here: http://www.headhuggers.org/patterns/kpatt07.htm) called for size 8 needles which made the hat huge, so I went down to size 7 and then finally size 4 needles. I made it with Red Heart Super Saver Worsted Yarn in Windsor Blue. This was actually my first FO on knitting needles.

Here's the one with the size 7 needles (sorry the picture is so bright):

as you can see it was a little too big one me...

For the one with size 4 needles I added an icord to each flap and two pompoms that I made myself.

Side View:

And Another View:

The two scarves I did about a year ago on a knitting loom.

The first one I made using two different yarns and I added tassels to the end. I found this one especially handy during my trip to Arizona last Christmas, and since it was made on a loom it didn't take long at all to make. It's actually taller than me at about 6 ft! (I'm short though, 5'0")

On me:

And modeled by our snowman:

The second scarf was made for my sister with some fun yarn. She wanted a skinny scarf so I decided to make her one. I knitted this one on the loom as well, but as a flat panel.

Modeled by my sister:

Hope you guys enjoyed this. Comments are appreciated and thank you for looking! Smiley

Thank you so much! Now I can get on with my project!  Grin

The funny thing is I have that website under my favorites; I had even looked under the increases section but couldn't figure out which one it was!

I'm a newbie knitter so I don't have much experience. My pattern says to:

Inc 1 st (i.e., K1, then K1 into the back loop of the same st)

I don't understand what it means by knitting into the back loop of the same stitch... does it mean the stitch I just knitted or what? If so how would I do this?

Help would be greatly appreciated!

Much thanks,

This is an awesome hat! I would make one, but I just began knitting so I don't think I would be able to do it yet... but I just wanted to tell you that this looks great! Smiley

ha ha gotta love the dog outfits.  i have a baby poodle about your dog's size.  have you ever knitted a dog sweater w/o the loom? (i ask b/c i do not have a loom - just lots and lots of needles and lots and lots and lots xthousands of yarn)

I'm a lil ashamed to admit this but I don't know how to knit without the loom but I'm sure that if you can knit a tube with some holes for the legs, you'll be able to do it! Smiley

Oh how cute!  Did you use a pattern for the doggy sweater, or did you just make it up?
I didn't really use a pattern for her sweater. I basically just made a tube with holes in it for her legs.

Super Job

Lol poor puppy lol
Thank you! I took her outside last weekend and trust me she appreciated it! lol Smiley

Yes they're very warm and toasty and they're also very easy and fast to make! Smiley
9  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Wrist Warmers and Doggy Sweater on loom! on: December 13, 2006 04:55:03 PM
I've always wanted wrist warmers and I found this great, easy pattern for making them on a loom here:

So without further ado here they are (sorry if it's a lil blurry)

I also made a sweater for my chihuahua on the loom, as well as a little hat with holes for her ears! She loves it!

and another

Feel free to tell me what y'all think! Smiley

edited to add: doggy sweater

OMG we were forced to watch her in our Humanities class, and I agree with how she would overanalyze everything!

Hilarious quote from her: "It's so big I can't take it all in!"
