1  Intuitive Me in Knitting: Completed Projects by Arrakis on: December 05, 2010 12:20:59 AM
I Love this hat! It is a bit slouchy and just warm enough. Plus it is really pretty!

I used the pattern Intuitive found on Ravelry, and the yarn is Knit Picks Capra. I love this yarn, it a Merino and cashmere wool blend. So soft!

Here is an in progress picture that shows the pattern a little better, maybe...

2  Ninja Gloves in Knitting: Completed Projects by Arrakis on: December 05, 2010 12:05:30 AM
My husband once asked for "a pair of mittens without fingers, you know, like Ninja gloves" without knowing that they are a widely made item. Needless to say, that is what we still call them! And guess what everyone is getting for Christmas!

They are all Knit Picks yarns, some are Knit Picks Swish Worsted  and some are Knit Picks Wool of the Andes. I just kind of went at it and didn't use a pattern.

3  Stolen Moments Wrap in Knitting: Completed Projects by Arrakis on: December 04, 2010 11:57:47 PM
Here is my Stolen Moments Wrap, I got the pattern on Ravelry. I have been in the process of making this for about a year and a half! The reason is that it is for me, and I kept doing things for other people. But it is done now and I love it!

The yarn is Knit Picks Wool of the Andes Bulky in Blackberry

It is so warm and really would be a quick project to knit up if you don't stop to make other people stuff!

4  The Profet.. in Halloween Costumes by Arrakis on: November 03, 2010 12:21:26 AM
So I went as an inside joke with my friends. I was the "Profet" (like smurfet, but for a prophet...) of Baby Dinosaur Jesus. We made up a religion one night at our local pub and basically it involves lots of drinking and dinosaurs and singing... Any way, here are the pictures!

So it starts off with a close up of ummm, my face. I cut a dinosaur in half and glued it to some sparkles and wore it as a hat.

Here is the top half of me. The sparkles also had a "halo". And I found some awesome/awful jewelry and I did neat makeup.

This is the full costume, I made an Infinity Dress because it was a good excuse, and then I also made a bright sparkly orange cape. Cuz why not right? I wore boots because I was going to be drunk (very religious of me you know) and didn't want to fall down...

He is sonic-ing the hot apple cider at the party. (that is my in my awesome costume in the background!)

Here is the whole costume.

He had an epic scarf battle. I'm going to have to patch this scarf in no time!

6  Mom's Car trash Bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Arrakis on: January 03, 2010 08:31:46 PM
I made my Mom a garbage bag for her car. I Kinda made up my own pattern for it after seeing a few online. She needed a bigger one than most of the patterns I was seeing because she drives all over Utah for her job so she eats meals in her car and snacks and all sorts of random garbage happens.

It is about 15 inches wide by maybe 14 inches tall by 1.5 inches at the bottom. I used a HUGE zip-tie for the boning at the top to hold it open, and some large gross-grain ribbon and velcro for the strap to hang on the back of the passenger seat. I also used the same ribbon for the decoration on the front and added a few buttons.

It is made with a cotton fabric on the outside and lined it with a windbreaker like material that she can wipe down really easily, and it is machine washable. She loved it and I have had requests for 3 more like it for other people!

7  Re: Market bag in Crochet: Completed Projects by Arrakis on: November 27, 2009 12:38:34 PM
Here is a link to the granny square I took the bottom from.

I just followed the pattern to the white flower part with a K hook. Then for the rest I kinda made it up. Like I said before I did a lovers knot with it attaching to the "flower" at every petal point and then in the little valley between each petal. I used and H hook for this and the rest of the project.

Here is a good Lovers Knot explanation http://crochet.about.com/library/weekly/aa122698.htm

Then for the top I did a sc in each Knot part with 3 chains between each. I went around one more time doing 1 sc in each 1 sc and 3 sc in each chained section. Then I decided where I wanted my straps and did them using a 1 sc 1 dc pattern so the 1 sc was done into the 1 dc from the previous row, and the 1 sc was done into the 1 dc from the previous row.

I hope all that made sense. If you have any questions please feel free to ask!

8  Crochet hook case in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Arrakis on: November 22, 2009 04:45:31 PM
I made a crochet hook case! I kinda just went at it and threw it together. It is a bit wonky but it fits everything I have and keeps them all together and away from the baby.

9  Scarf for my grandma! in Knitting: Completed Projects by Arrakis on: November 22, 2009 04:34:38 PM
This is a scarf for my grandma, It is the 3rd scarf I have made for her... the cats destroyed the other lovely delicate lacy ones. So I made this one a bit sturdier.

It is the sunday market shawl on Ravelry. I just made my rows 4 knit wide and added a simple cable.

10  Market bag, now with a kinda tutorial. sort of. in Crochet: Completed Projects by Arrakis on: November 22, 2009 01:58:31 PM
I looked forever to find a market bag pattern that I liked and couldn't find one anywhere! So i designed my own it was made from the bottom up.

The bottom is a flower motif that is just as stretchy as the rest of the bag

Then the body is Lovers Knot done kinda smallish so the holes aren't to huge.

And the bag rim thing is 2 rows of single crochet and the handles are single crochet, double crochet with an almost embroidered edging.

And they hold a ton! here it is with 4 skeins of yarn my project bag and a half knit scarf inside
