1  The Cowl in Knitting: Completed Projects by madhelmeteer on: November 15, 2008 07:13:33 PM
I'm usually posting in the crochet section as that is my big thing but I decided to borrow my dear friend's hat loom and give it a try. I think loom stuff is considered knitting...isn't it? Sorry!!! Anyway, I was asked to make a baby photography prop cocoon and I used the large loom and it worked out great.  I got to thinking that the dimensions were perfect for a cowl.
I used a variegated vintage olefin  in oatmeal that I've been dying to use and I knitted a long tube to which I then attached a creamy-white mohair yarn.  I doubled up all the yarns.  I played around a little with pattern on the white side.  I made the second tube as long as the first and finished off the edge using a crochet hook.  I stuffed one tube into the other and, voila...a reversible cowl! I can't wait to wear it 'cause they're all the rage.  What do you think?

2  Under the Sea in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by madhelmeteer on: April 12, 2008 05:36:10 PM
I just finished my son's Under the Sea room.  It was all inspired by a piece of fabric I bought at a rummage sale, which I sewed into a duvet cover.  I painted 3 fish with big lip paintings with acrylic paints. I hung a net from the ceiling and threw in some shells and a shovel.  I applied big circular vinyl wall decals to look like bubbles. I hung a batik quilt that my mother made for my bedroom when I was little.  Finally, I crocheted 5 funky fishies, which hang from the ceiling.  What a fun room for a little one.  What do you think?

3  School of Amis Fish! in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by madhelmeteer on: April 12, 2008 05:27:28 PM
I usually make animal hats but someone on craftster suggested that I do Amis.  I decided to finish off my son's Under the Sea room with five hanging fish.  What do you think?

Reduce, REUSE, Recycle...
I cut apart an old scrunchie and used it on a hat. To think I almost threw this beaded treasure out!

Way too Wild!  What do you think?  Comments, suggestions, and criticisms appreciated. ENJOY!

Inspired by the fabulous book titled 'The Rainbow Fish'.

My biggest seller!

So hard to find baby mitts that don't fall off, so these have elastic.


Check out the webbed-feet earflaps!

6  Summer hat frenzy in Crochet: Completed Projects by madhelmeteer on: March 24, 2008 08:29:42 AM
I'm so used to making hats for winter.  It's time to start an inventory of light, summer hats.  I made this one out of delicate silk and viscose yarn.  The ribbon really adds something special. Tell me what you think!!!
