1  Turn a Square New FO in Knitting: Completed Projects by seeker83 on: March 04, 2009 09:02:30 PM
I originally started this hat for my mum, but I am not sure if she'll be into it. She's more a white oxford shirt lady than a funky rainbow stripe lady. I used Paton's Classic Merino (Natural Mix) and  Noro Silk Garden (279). This was the first time I have used circular needles  successfully, I just used a 16 in. no. 7 as God intended. I figured I'd give it a go before I tried magic loop or 2 circs. I loved it, but I wasn't too thrilled when I had to switch back to DPNs because I realized my no. 7's were otherwise occupied in a beret I am knitting, so I finished up the crown on no. 6's.

4  A first knited FO-- Calorimetry in Knitting: Completed Projects by seeker83 on: September 28, 2008 04:08:58 PM
I've started a zillion knitted projects over the past two years and ripped all of them, save for one very ugly dishcloth. I am excited that I finally finished something. There are a couple rough spots, but overall I am happy with it. I cast on 84 or 88 with size 10 needles in Shetland Chunky Tweeds and only did 10 rows instead of 15.





Originally I was planning on gifting it to my best friend for her birthday.... but... well. I'll have to make her another one because I am attached to this one.

I looked a little closer at it and now I see that the cross marks are off a little.  I used a jump ring and put it on a silver chain for now, so I am proudly displaying my geekiness :-D

In honor of Monday night, I give you "The Symbol" from Heroes in wire and czeck glass beads. It is a pendant and I am still trying to figure out what I want to put it on Smiley I've never done much with wire, so if I did it "wrong" I'm not too worried LOL

7  Mary Jane Slippers in Crochet: Completed Projects by seeker83 on: November 03, 2007 03:57:46 PM





I used this tutorial for inspiration and basic directions, however I didn't follow the pattern. I made them in DC instead of hdc and with only one strand, so obviously I had to modify for gauge and fit. I also love how I put the seams in different places *facepalm*.

They are made from Paton's SWS yarn in Natural Earth color. I really love working with this yarn, it is so silky. I was pretty peeved to get within three rows of finished and have to break into my second skein of yarn. If my feet were a size 8 instead of 11, I wouldn't have had to do that *grumble*.

It is Jiffy and I think red heart light and lofty, but it doesn't have a label and its been in my basket for at least a year. They are for my toddler and I didn't follow a pattern, so one turned out really big, but tight at the top so it doesnt fall off. The other one turned out the right size throughout the foot, but is too loose around the top lol =)

9  First Completed Projects in Crochet: Completed Projects by seeker83 on: October 10, 2007 08:01:01 PM
These two hats are my first completed projects save for an iPod cozy that I won't let out into the light of day. I've been crocheting for about two weeks now and I've had lots of starts, but no finishes until yesterday (the brown one) and then I finished the pink one today.

The baby hat was just an experiment, so no pattern. It's done in Jiffy yarn. The other hat was based off the Basic Crown and is done in some sort of cotton yarn from wal mart.
