1  Gir for baby in Knitting: Completed Projects by Marnie on: May 07, 2006 05:43:33 PM

I knit this yesterday for a friend who is about to have a baby and who loves Invader Zim. It's Gir in his dog suit.

He's knit of Rowan Calmer and a sport weight cotton for the legs and arms. The rest is done with felt and cotton floss. He's understuffed to be extra snuggl. I'm actually going to have a hard time parting with him.  Grin

Right now, my three favorite sources are
Nistock farms
Spunky Eclectic
Chameleon Colorworks

All three are independantly owned by wonderful women with whom I have nothing but great things to say.

From Nistock, I spun and knit this:

From Spunky I spun and knit this:

And from Chameleon I spun and knit this;

I love their stuff Smiley

3  My dragon backpack in Knitting: Completed Projects by Marnie on: April 20, 2006 03:43:24 PM
I'm planning on offering a pattern for this soon. It was supposed to be published in a book but was cut at the last minute, so it's back home with me.
Anyway, I call him "Drake the Dreaded" he's a backpack.

The tongue is actually the handle for the tie that cinches the bag closed

And in back i have spots, spine and straps.

I think things with silly faces amuse me more than I should admit, and I have every intention of using this myself, despite the fact that I'm old enough to know better Wink

This is my first big project from handspun

I've chronicled the whole process on my blog, but here are the project notes:

I'm really happy with the results. The roving is amazing stuff. I got it from http://nistockfarms.com and the color is called "Autumn Spice".

6  Dragon Hoodie and Pattern Link in Knitting: Completed Projects by Marnie on: September 06, 2004 01:18:32 AM
I've finally finished the pattern for my Dragon Hoodie that I designed for my boss's new baby, James.

That's the front, and here's the back

You can get the pattern here
It actually goes pretty quickly and only required 3 skeins of yarn for the medium size. You gotta love making baby stuff  Grin

I've just posted a new double pattern on my site for a his and hers hat I call "Nautilus Hats" because of their spiral increases at the crown.
The men's version


is much easier than the women's version
but I think I like it a little better Grin

8  Dragon Baby Sweater in Knitting: Completed Projects by Marnie on: May 24, 2004 03:24:08 PM
So my boss is having a little boy and she was lamenting the lack of super cute things for baby boys, so I thought I'd try to surprise her with something cute for her little man, not a moment too soon, either as her shower will be very soon.

Here are pics

I haven't entirely finished it. I may add pom-pom eye balls, I'm sort of on the line as I don't want to over do it.

There's a little (ok a BIG) part of me that wants to make one MY size, but that may come at a later date.

It's made with Red Heart's TLC Amore and let me say, if you can avoid working with this yarn, I would. It is great for baby clothes, soft, wash/dry able and non-allergetic, but it's a P.I.T.A. to work with, especially the finishing step. Just my 2

I've just finished a new piece I call "My Fuzzy Valentine" There's a pattern for my size, with other sizes to come available on my site

It took me about 4 months to finish so I'm really glad to have it done. It's warm and yummy, YAY!  Grin

10  Hooray for me Gloves in Knitting: Completed Projects by Marnie on: January 12, 2004 05:15:15 PM

So, a friend of mine begged me to make her fingerless gloves. I agreed but it's taken me nearly a year to find the motivation. There's something about working those pesky little fingers that drives me nuts! Finally they are done and I've posted the pattern on my website (http://www.mlminspirations.com/patterns/HFMGloves/HFMGloves.html) for anyone who wants a pair for themselves. It's a pretty basic glove pattern and if you have one you like better, you could certainly adapt the pattern easily since it's really the Regia yarn that makes them special.
