11  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Mona the bear on: February 11, 2012 11:57:52 AM
I up-cycled a pair of brown corduroy pants and blue cord skirt to make this bear for my son for xmas.  The pattern is "Mona" from a book whose title escapes me at the moment...



12  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Happy from Fairy Tail on: February 11, 2012 11:47:33 AM
Happy is a flying blue cat from an anime called Fairy Tail which my husband and I watch together.
He's made of terry cloth, fleece and felt from my stash using the grey cat pattern from a book called "Doudous tout doux : Apprendre crer des doudous avec Aranzi Aronzo."

13  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Colourful Juggling Cats on: February 11, 2012 11:40:09 AM
I crocheted these while pregnant for my son to make a mobile for his crib and never got around to hanging them.  My son still plays with them, now that he knows not to try and chew the buttons off  Smiley
Pattern: Juggling Cats by Susan Morishita using Bernat Handicrafter Cotton Solids & Denim.

14  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Fall Seed Stitch Jacket & Rainy Day Hat on: February 11, 2012 11:35:45 AM
Knit these up for my toddler months ago but misplaced them (in the closet of all places) before I could get pics.
Seed Stitch Baby Jacket by Elinor Brown
The Long Beanie by Woolly Wormhead
Pantons Decor yarn.







The hat was knit one rainy afternoon last fall.  The jacket over a few months, so much seed stitch!  My seams leave something to desire but otherwise I'm pleased with it.  Lined it with some blue flannelette so it will be nice and cozy for the fall.  I put it on my son for the photo and he didn't want to take it off!
15  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Trio of Earflap Hats on: February 11, 2012 11:30:34 AM
Great stash busting project! I knit 3 total. My gauge was off on the first making it too small for me and just too big for my toddler this year.

Hello my fellow February birthday buddies! My name is Kim and Ill be 33 on the 23rd.  I live in Montreal QC, Canada, with my husband and 2yr old son.  Im a corporate zombie and semi-pro photographer.  Im a long time sci-fi and fantasy geek, enjoying movies, video games, board games, d&d but am at a total loss with ccgs.  I love to settle down with a good book or movie, and often have knitting in my hands.  I love the colours blue, grey and brown.  I hate with a capital H the colour pink. ( Its no fault of pinks, Im sure it a lovely colour but it and I just dont get along.)  I love to bake even though Im married to a cook.  I love tea, hot chocolate and sundaes.
 
Some fav themes/things: Gnomes, Bunnies, Art Nouveau, Godzilla, Gir (invader Zim), Art Deco, Steam punk, Fall & Winter, Stars, zentangles, koi &/or waves, old maps, cute monsters and robots, ninjas and pirates.
 
Allergies: hay fever (so please dont roll in ragweed while your crafting for me lol)

19  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Aeolain Shawl - problem with edge set up chart on: November 02, 2011 04:50:13 PM
Thank you both, I think I've got it mostly figured out.  Good thing this is the practice run for the larger shawl. ... yeah, I know.
20  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Aeolain Shawl - problem with edge set up chart on: November 01, 2011 07:01:10 PM
Long story short I'm knitting the Aeolian shawl as my first major lace project (yeah, I'm a sucker for punishment).

http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEspring09/KSPATTaeolian.php

So far, things have been moving along quite well.  But for 2 days now I've been stuck on rows 23-25 of the edge set up chart.  Specifically the stitches on either side of the repeat.  I feel like there is a decrease missing but I don't see anyone else having this problem.  On the right side of the repeat ln21 is 70, 4k, ssk, yo for 6sts before moving into the main repeat.  Line 23 goes yo, k6, yo for 8 sts.  Then line 25 goes yo, k7, yo for 10 sts.  But on both of the these lines with out a decrease I have an extra sts after on my needle after the 2nd yo.  Does that extra sts jump the marker to be taken up in S2KP (double centered decrease)?
