So glad to see you guys like it, and that I'm not the only one who loves Christmas-y things year round Cheesy I'll get working on a pattern, then \o/
12  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / (Very belated) Christmas tree beanie on: January 23, 2013 04:00:22 AM
I finished this project during the holidays, as the title implies, but I've been once again procrastinating and just now got around to posting about it. Christmas might be over, but that doesn't mean we can't still enjoy a nice holiday project Wink

I spent all of December watching the Yogscast charity livestreams (any Yogscast fans out there?), and everyone kept wearing these adorable Christmas tree hats. I loved them so much that I couldn't resist trying to knit one for my very own.

I completely improvised the pattern, and I'm quite pleased with how it turned out. I'm thinking about maybe writing it up, but it's still a while until next Christmas, so we'll see. What do you guys think?

As always, a bit more info and photos on my blog.

I had my birthday last week, and since the weather's thankfully getting cold enough for hats, I thought I'd make this as a birthday present to myself Cheesy

The pattern I used is this one. I did the teen/adult size, which ended up being a little big for me (or maybe I just like my hats a little snug, I don't know). I also made a few modifications to the pattern. I'm really pleased with how it came out! I always wanted a hat with earflaps!

A bit more info on this project can be found on my blog.

Kourtney - haha, it's okay, sounds like you have good reason to be a bit distracted Wink Yep, I just used the acrylic paint on the fabric, no stabiliser or anything. Here is a (not very good) picture of what it looks like after a few washings:

bethimusprime - I haven't tried anything other than the acrylic paint. I did start using fabric paint on the very first ones I did, but the color wouldn't show on black fabric, and it looked like it'd need two bottles of paint in the end, so I immediately moved on to acrylic, and with these I didn't even bother trying the fabric paint. If you have a light-colored fabric or dark paint, though, I'm pretty sure fabric paint would be better and more long-lasting.

I've been rewatching Batman Beyond, plus I just bought some plain undies, so I was inspired to stencil some of them, since my previous Batman panties are my absolute favourite and always put me in a better mood when I wear them.

And so, Nightwing and Batman Beyond-style undies were created \o/

I used acrylic paints, since those worked really well the last time - they get a little faded and grungy when washed a few times, and I love the effect. The Nightwing ones went without a hitch and were finished in twenty minutes flat, the other ones were a bit of a problem because it took a million layers for the color to show properly, and that creates a bit of a problem when lifting the cardboard stencil. But they turned out all right in the end, and now I have kickass panties!
