1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: Intuitive Me on: December 05, 2010 10:16:44 AM
Thanks you guys! Here is the pattern on page on Ravelry so you don't have to go looking!

2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Intuitive Me 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...

3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Ninja Gloves 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.
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Stolen Moments Wrap 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!
5  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Re: Ask Debbie Stoller... and maybe win her new book! Call for interview questions. on: November 17, 2010 04:01:44 PM
I'm so so so glad your doing something beyond the basics! I love your books, they came out a few years after I started Knitting and really helped me learn a few basic things and now I'm so excited to see this new book!
I was wondering how involved you are in choosing the fiber content, colors. etc. for your new line of yarn? I would be interested in how and why you made those choices? (I really like the yarns btw!)
6  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / The Profet.. 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...
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / The Doctor's Scarf on: October 30, 2010 11:26:30 PM
I made my Husband a Doctor Who scarf from the fourth version of the Doctor, Tom Baker. So he decided to dress as the Doctor for Halloween. Here is the scarf!

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!

I'm glad you understood that. I'm still new to sewing, I got my first machine last month and this was only my 3rd project. So I don't know all the terminology to describe things yet!

But I do still have a question - is that front part where the boning is the same size as the back?  It looksl ike it's longer, but that might just be the pic or the way teh boning makes it stick out . . . Trying to wrap my head around it . . .

I made a basic bag and then made the boning go a little way past the seams on the side. So the boning line on the front is longer than the back part. I'm not sure if I explained that well. I should have taken pictures when I was doing it. But I need to make a few more so I'll try and do a tute next time. I just need to go get more ribbon! 
10  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Mom's Car trash Bag 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!
