1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / My knitting projects on: July 15, 2009 08:31:28 AM
So here are some of my knitting projects that I've finished recently.  I wanted to learn cabling so I did the palindrome scarf (free pattern from ravelry).

Then there was a scarf called the pioneer braid scarf made with short rows I wanted to try (also free rav pattern).  The yarn it was originally made of was a verigated worsted, but I decided to make it with ribbon yarn that I had.  It looks nice, but it's hard to see the pattern.

And finally (for now) the Hurry Up Spring Armwarmers from Stitch n Bitch Nation.  I made these with a mohair/silk blend for at work cause my hands are always cold.  I forgot to check for errata before I started so the pattern on the right armwarmer is a bit off, but I still like them.  Oh and I hate the gusset hole, so on the left armwarmer I increased by knitting back & front of the same stitch to start the gusset instead of M1.

And a bit o detail:
2  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Turning Twenty Baby Quilt on: April 27, 2009 08:47:53 AM
So my cousins recently had a baby.  As soon as they found out they were having a baby girl I wanted to get started on a quilt for them.  My mom had bought a kit that was for a modified turning twenty so that's what I used.  Side note - I hate when quilting stores sell kits without instructions.  I have the turning twenty book so I used that and guessed.  I was a bit off but like the results  Grin  Oh and it's all hand quilted.

The whole quilt:

The big squares I did a daisy pattern:

The hearts & swirls in the long rectangle:

And finally, the diamond pattern in the short triangle:

3  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / My crochet projects on: April 27, 2009 08:42:49 AM
Here are a couple of crochet projects that I did over the winter.  The first is a simple shawl that was a belated Christmas present add on.

And this is a cloche that I made for myself.  It ended up being too big but I love the hat.  It was a free pattern off of ravelry.

4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / 2 new calorimetries on: January 23, 2009 09:34:19 AM
I've made not one but two of the awesome calorimetry pattern!  My first one I used bulky yarn and it came out a bit big:

The second one I made for someone as a swap angel.  Its all piratey.  I kinda wanted to keep it myself  Grin

Comments appreciated  Wink
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Polka Dot Baby Blanket on: October 09, 2008 08:30:27 AM
So I decided to make a polka dot baby blanket for my cousin's baby.  I had never done anything with 2 color's before but decided to jump right in.  Here is the finished blankie:

I decided to put a back on the blanket, even though knit blankets usually don't have a flannel back, lol.  I thought the ridges where I sewed the panels together would be uncomfortable for a baby.  Plus I found a really cute flannel at Joanne.

And finally here is an in progress pic of one of the panels to show the colors better.

Please feel free to leave comments  Cheesy
Oh and the pattern was free on Ravelry.
6  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / My version of the cowboy booties on: July 30, 2008 11:52:37 AM
Awhile ago I saw the cowboy booties that someone made on here (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=188469.0).  I thought they were super cute and decided to make my own.  This is the first time I've made booties so they aren't perfect but they look really cute on the baby I made them for (WYOKrista's baby!)  Cheesy  So here they are:
7  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies / Hockey Ducks Baby Shower on: April 22, 2008 07:29:16 AM
Last Saturday I went to a surprise baby shower for WYOKrista.  The theme was hockey ducks so I made this cake:

I wish I had more pictures of all of the decorations because it was a really cute shower.

10  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / My $2 Fit to Be Tied on: October 28, 2007 04:36:01 PM
I checked out the Happy Hooker from the library last week.  How I missed this discussion board before then, and this great book I haven't figured out.  I decided to make the Fit to be Tied clutch with yarn I got from Micheals on clearace for $1 a skein.  Here it is!

The ribbon is from my stash & the lining is part of a pant leg of a trashed pair of trousers.  Excuse Abby Normal, she thought the bag had goodies in it for her Smiley
