1  Hats and mittens for everyone! in Knitting: Completed Projects by princess_megs on: December 17, 2008 08:02:04 PM
So this year I had MANY requests from my family for hats and mittens, and so over the past few weeks I got to work and produced a few sets, here they are:

The hat is the Snowflake Hat by Jenny Kostka, and the mittens are the Newfoundland Mittens by Traditional Design.

The hat is the Lillehammer Hat by Jacquelynn Vance-Kuss, and the  mittens I designed myself to match with the hat.

The hat is designed by myself, and the mittens are the Very Cabley Mittens by Kelly Porpiglia

The hat and neckwarmer were designed by myself Smiley

I got all of the patterns listed from ravelry. 

Which ones are your favourites?  I can't decide myself....I love how they all turned out Smiley

2  Androgeny scarf in Knitting: Completed Projects by princess_megs on: November 17, 2008 05:41:04 AM
I designed this scarf a couple of months ago, and after fiddling with the pattern and a couple of test knits, it's finally ready!  I knit this in Bernat Berella...I know it's not fancy yarn, but I really like the colours and I find this yarn really easy to work with.  I came up with the design because I have seen a ton of gorgeous lace, cabled, etc designs....and I thought maybe there should be a super cool stockinette scarf design too!  Basically one say I put on a wide scarf and tied it like a tie....and thought "This could work!"...and here it is!

Comments are appreciated!

3  Slouchy Gemma Beret in Knitting: Completed Projects by princess_megs on: April 14, 2008 05:49:02 PM
I made this as a quick, fun project out of some extra sock yarn I had.  The pattern wasn't the best to be honest; quite a few mistakes, sizing was poorly designed, but after some mods it turned out well.  I think it'll be perfect for the great spring weather that's here in Canada now (finally)!  Here are a couple of pics:

This is another bridesmaid shrug for my big day in 1.5 months, this one is for my junior bridesmaid (15) so I gave her some coverage in the front.  This is a fabulous pattern, I definitely plan on knitting a few of these for myself, they'll be a great addition to my spring wardrobe!

Comments greatly appreciated, more pics and details on my blog = http://blondeambitionknits.wordpress.com/2008/03/29/bridesmaid-shrugs/
Thanks for looking!

5  Reading in Bed Shrug in Knitting: Completed Projects by princess_megs on: March 29, 2008 01:10:33 PM
I knit this for one of my bridesmaids to wear at the dinner part of my wedding in Mexico that's coming up in less than two months (AHHH!).  I used Cotton Ease in Almond, it was a great yarn to work with, and the pattern was really easy.  I did add a picot hem on the top edge because I wanted it to look at bit more finished since it's for a semi-formal event.

Comments are much appreciated, more pics and details on my blog (blondeambition.wordpress.com)
Thanks for looking!

6  Danica - my first entrelac (pic heavy) in Knitting: Completed Projects by princess_megs on: February 28, 2008 07:34:38 PM
I had a lot of fun knitting this, I had never done entrelac before hence why I did it for the challenge!  It was tough at first, but then it became surprisingly addictive.  I knit this with a cashmere mix yarn, so it's super soft...I really love it, can't wait to wear it tomorrow! 

Here are my challenge pics:

7  Twinkle Shopping Tunic and Patch Pocket Raglan Action Shots in Knitting: Completed Projects by princess_megs on: January 14, 2008 12:27:01 PM
Here are a couple of my Christmas gift knits, the rest are coming - I just need to take the pics!  I made Twinkle's Shopping Tunic (my second) in red for my bro's gf. I used bulky acrylic yarn, double-stranded (black and red on bottom, all red the rest), and otherwise followed the pattern closely. 

Also, here's my version of Knitty's Patch Pocket Raglan (sans pocket) modeled by the recipient, my brother.  I made a post on here about this a ways back when I finished it, but here's the 'action shot'

Thanks for looking!  There are more pics and info on my blog (blondeambitionknits.wordpress.com)

8  Twinkle's Shopping Tunic fits a *Curvy* Woman in Knitting: Completed Projects by princess_megs on: December 03, 2007 01:18:41 PM
So as most of you know, this pattern only comes in seemingly super small sizes.  I started knitting the 33" bust size (the largest) for a friend with a 35" bust hoping that it would stretch nicely to fit, plus I added some short-row bust shaping.  When I finished it, in all of 2 DAYS (!), I tried it on just to see, and it ended up fitting me quite well (I have ~37" bust)!  I cancelled the pockets since I didn't really want emphasis right there (I'm curvy enough as it is).  I knit this double-stranded with one strand of black bulky and brown bulky acrylic mix yarn.  I had never double-stranded with two different colours before, and I was pleasantly surprised with the results....I love the tweedy look I ended up with. 

More pics and whatnot on my blog (blondeambitionknits.wordpress.com), thanks for looking!

9  Anouk Dress in Knitting: Completed Projects by princess_megs on: November 09, 2007 11:47:31 AM
Here's my version of Knitty's Anouk baby dress.  I didn't like the pockets on the front bottom, so I added a small pocket on the chest with the baby's initial on it.  I also added some lace hearts along the stripe on the bottom.  Here's a pic of it on the new little cutie that gets to wear it (it's my friend's new baby)!

10  The Jenny bag in Knitting: Completed Projects by princess_megs on: November 09, 2007 11:27:42 AM
This is Jenny the Blue Bag that I made for my friend's birthday.  I designed it as I went along, I'll try my best to put a pattern up relatively soon since it's very simple.  I used Bernat Satin yarns in blue and brown on size 8 needles.  I lined the purse with an animal print cotton fabric, and I stitched it by hand. 

More details and info are on my blog: blondeambitionknits.wordpress.com
Let me know what you think!
