31  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / "Sprinkles" Hat on: December 29, 2011 02:49:36 PM
I love this hat! Textured pattern knit up pretty easy, love the yarn and colors. Used buttons I had on hand, which happened to match the yarn really well.

33  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Couple New things: Hat & Caplet on: December 05, 2011 04:33:33 PM
The hat I made to go with the herringbone cowl I made, and knit it with my leftover yarn... It's currently blocking, so all pictures of it are pre-blocking. The caplet I made today (didn't feel well, so stayed home from work and just knit all day, lol), took about 6 hours or so.

Finished this yummy goodness this morning!

35  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Belle Ruffle Gloves on: November 08, 2011 03:07:04 PM
I just LOVE these gloves (and yarn!). My hands were roasting as I took these pictures, lol.
They are a quick knit, but I took my time on the first glove. I had to make a few modifications to the pattern to make them fit my hands, since I have rather small wrists and hands. I used #5 needles and did a few extra decreases when I found that the change in needle size didn't work like it has in the past.

36  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Coffee Cup Cozies on: November 08, 2011 01:17:46 PM
I started a poncho the other night, but got distracted by this pattern for a coffee cup cozy: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/leaf-cup-cuddler

It's so easy, and knits up so quick, I finished one yesterday, and made another this morning.

This first one I followed the pattern, and made it in fall colors:

I really didn't like how the tips of the leafs turn out the way the pattern in written, too pointy and then they curl (even after a first attempt at blocking). So when I made the second one this morning (for my mom, since she hinted rather broadly that she wanted one, lol) I altered the pattern, and like the leafs much better this way.

37  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Victorian Style Neck Warmer (With link to pattern) on: October 29, 2011 06:04:30 PM
I thought this was so cute! Not easy to put on... might be easier if made with buttons, but I like the look of the ribbon better.

Edit: Here is the link to the pattern on Ravelry http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/lady-jessica
38  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Knitpicks Interchangeable Kits on: October 27, 2011 08:40:33 AM
I tried searching to see if this had been asked before, and didn't find anything;

I have only been knitting about 7 months, and as the only knitter in the family... I have no chance of hand-me-downs, lol. I bought cheap bamboo double pointed needles and straight needles on ebay (like $20 each kit which had size 1-15 or something like that), so I'm pretty set there, but I'm still building my collection of circular needles, and with most new projects I have to buy a new set of circular needles, which is getting annoying, lol. I get home and think, "Oh, I'll start this, I can't wait!" and find out I do have to wait, because my circulars aren't the right size or length. Sometimes (like what I'm working on now) I'm working with a size smaller needle (which is fine) with way too long of a cord (since I had bought these for an adorable poncho).

So, the other day when I was buying yarn at my favorite little shop for my new projects (can't wait to finish, they are going to be so cute!!) the owner and I were talking about needles, she suggested the Knitpicks kit. I really like working with bamboo over metal, so I would be springing for the Harmony wood kit if I get them. She said that everyone that gets them loves them... For the people here that have them, are they really all that and a bag of potato chips? I love the idea of being able to swap the tips with various size cables. If I get them, it won't be for another couple months since they are pricey, but wanted to look for opinions Smiley

Thanks in advance!
39  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Rainy Day Gloves on: October 18, 2011 03:43:18 PM
Since Sunday had been rainy and gloomy, I used that time to make these fingerless gloves. I'm very happy with them!

40  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Lace Scarf for Mom on: October 16, 2011 09:44:07 AM
My mom saw this pattern, and liked it so I made the scarf for her. I made it with the new Lion Brand Martha Stewart yarn, the extra soft wool blend. It's nice yarn, easy to work with, though a bit pricey. I had a 50% off coupon, though, and it only took one skein, so it wasn't bad.

Detailed view

I probably should have blocked this, but I've only been knitting about 6 months, and haven't blocked before, so that scares me, lol. I asked my mom if she wanted me to, but she likes it how it is, and didn't want it blocked.
