1  Ruffles obsession in Knitting: Completed Projects by dancechica on: December 11, 2008 03:14:58 PM
Two scarves from my recent ruffles obsession!
This one is my favorite.  The heart lace pattern is from Knitty's Heart, and I just added ruffles along the side.

This one is made with Lion Brand Ruffles yarn. It's prettier in person, lol.

2  Purple cabled sweater in Knitting: Completed Projects by dancechica on: December 10, 2008 11:59:31 AM
Overall I am pleased with how this turned out!  This pattern is from the Fall 08 issue of Vogue Knitting.  It was supposed to have a hood but it didn't come out right so I frogged it and just did some neckline ribbing.  It is made out of bulky wool so it is very warm.  Here it is...

Thanks for looking Smiley

3  Lovely little shrug in Knitting: Completed Projects by dancechica on: December 01, 2008 10:26:09 AM
This was my Thanksgiving weekend project.  This shrug was fun and easy to knit!  I used Nashua Handknits Sitar, a really gorgeous yarn.  The pattern was the famous Anthropologie-inspired capelet, but I modified it a lot and made it into more of a shrug that buttons at the bottom than a capelet.

4  Lacy cardigan in Knitting: Completed Projects by dancechica on: November 12, 2008 08:12:54 AM
This is my first ever sweater!  I used the Hey, Teach! pattern on Knitty.  I was inspired by some very beautiful FOs here and on Ravelry.  I kind of think it makes me look fat, its a little short, and its not perfect, but I don't even care because I made it and I love it!! Smiley  I used Lion Brand Cotton-Ease.

Excuse my black bra, lol.

5  Corazon mittens in Knitting: Completed Projects by dancechica on: November 02, 2008 06:24:49 PM
I made these mittens using the Corazon pattern from Knitty.  I love them!!  They came out great and I couldn't be happier.  I made them a little shorter than the pattern called for, because they were coming out long.

Here they are!

6  Houndstooth scarf in Knitting: Completed Projects by dancechica on: October 28, 2008 08:14:42 AM
I just finished this scarf.  I used a beautiful pattern I found on Ravelry.  I used Patons Classic Wool to knit it.  Its knit in the round, so its very warm!

7  Fuzzy slipper socks in Knitting: Completed Projects by dancechica on: October 20, 2008 05:26:09 PM
I made these slipper socks for my boyfriend.  He is a very good boyfriend... he thinks its so cool that I know how to make things, and he even holds my skein of yarn and gives me more when I need it, when I'm knitting  Cheesy 

These socks are super fuzzy and warm, and the yarn is really soft!  I wanted something cheap so I used Sensations Angel Hair.  It is hard to make socks using worsted, not sock yarn.. I had to keep frogging because they kept being too big.

Well here they are!

8  Lemon moccasins! in Crochet: Completed Projects by dancechica on: October 15, 2008 09:05:33 PM
I just finished these moccasin slippers.  It only took me one day!  They worked up so quickly and were fun to do.  I used an awesome pattern on Ravelry by Umme Yusuf.  They are my lemon moccasins because 1. they are bright yellow and 2. I made them while watching 30 Rock  Smiley

9  Sparkly Pom-Pom Scarf in Knitting: Completed Projects by dancechica on: October 15, 2008 02:31:35 PM
This is my first project with cables!  I am really happy with how it turned out.  Cables are not nearly as scary as I thought they would be.  The only thing is, my scarf curls like crazy on the edges.  I tried blocking it and it helped a little.  I don't really mind cause it's not that noticeable when I am wearing it.

Any suggestions?

10  So Fresh afghan!! aka The Never-Ending Afghan of Doom in Crochet: Completed Projects by dancechica on: October 07, 2008 02:28:54 PM
I am so happy I finally finished this project.  It took me FOUR YEARS!  (Well, there was about a three-year hiatus lol. But still.)  I started this a looong time ago and then stopped; I got frustrated because it was taking forever.  Then, I was cleaning out the basement and found the half-finished afghan... now that I'm older and wiser I decided to finish it.

I'm really happy with the way it came out! It is so warm and comfy. I used Caron Simply Soft and the pattern is So Fresh from the book Color Charged Afghans by Anne Halliday.   

Here it is!

Close up of the stitch detail.

I don't think I'm going to be making any more afghans anytime soon...  Wink
