1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Knitty's Percy Purse on: June 02, 2008 10:02:11 AM
This is the biggest knitting project I have undertaken to date, and I'm really enjoying the final product so far. It took me about three weeks to construct, which I guess isn't bad, but I get antsy to finish once I get started so I practically never stop! The blocking process drove me crazy, made me wait two days, and hardly seemed to make a difference. The hand-stitching of everything took days, too... never making this again! There are plenty of quirks to this bag, but I doubt anyone will ever notice Smiley It makes it special. Without further ado, the finished product:

All my junk being stowed away probably makes this picture confusing, but oh well.

Knit this hat with some Caron Simply Soft, black. The pattern is from http://www.littleturtleknits.com/pithyhat.htm Followed it just like it is. Very simple, once you get used to the lace pattern. K2tog(tbl) was a slightly challenging move. I used needle sizes 5 and 10. I didn't make a swatch. It turned out a tiny bit loose, but it still fits. The length and flop of it was pretty much exactly what i wanted.

3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Chevron beret on: February 07, 2008 12:01:13 PM
I haven't posted anything in a while. I obsessively knit this hat in two days' time. I used a "chevron beret" pattern... I can't remember where from, though. Here are silly photobooth pics! I'm way behind on taking normal photos of my crafty things. The yarn is by Pingouin, and I think the color is called Tweedy. I got it from my grandma's stash Smiley I didn't do any mods to the pattern, surprisingly. I never blocked it. And I probably should have pulled the yarn through tighter at the end, but oh well!

4  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Little Golden Book Clock on: January 17, 2008 10:07:47 PM
It took me a little while to figure out what forum this belonged in, but I decided this was probably the most suitable. I wish I had a better picture of this clock, but I failed to take a real one before I gave it away to my sister for her birthday. Hopefully I can take a picture of it at her apartment sometime soonish. Anyway, here it is! I got the idea from http://www.instructables.com/id/Literary-Clock/

Thanks for looking!
5  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / The Man Of Steel collage on: December 28, 2007 10:53:17 PM
I suppose this is the forum that this fits into most appropriately. I'm a newbie Smiley
This is a Christmas present I made for a friend who really loves Superman comics. So I bought one and made a collage out of it - and no worries, it was a reprint of a classic - not really a valuable item.

Hope this picture isn't too big. I want people to be able to read the writing. I felt like I chose the funny bits Tongue
At the bottom right where there's a "WE" and "bark bark" that's because my friend's last name is Webb... it was my attempt at personalizing it.

Thanks for looking!
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / christmas things (img heavy) on: December 28, 2007 10:11:33 PM
Red heart yarns, I think. Dark green and navy blue combined, plus gray stripes

First time doing any color work!

Hat with detachable earflaps!
(sorry about the weird faces)
I have no idea what yarn this is. It was in my grandma's stash without a label. I love it, so if anybody can identify it, that would rock!

A dishcloth - this one i actually knit at thanksgiving just for the heck of it
Just white cotton

ipod nano sock
pink baby yarn with pink red heart

All of these are just simple things I pretty much made up.

7  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Baby/infant socks on: December 06, 2007 08:08:44 PM
This is my first attempt at knitting socks of any sort and they actually turned out really great! I'm quite proud of them. Though I couldn't have done them without the help of my roommate, translating the pattern instructions for me! They're for a little girl who is 1 year old. They will probably be too big for her right now, but she'll grow into them and then grow out of them. Here are a couple pics of my finished product. I followed a pattern from Plymouth Yarn Co, Inc. called Jeannee (http://www.plymouthyarn.com/index.php?nav=cPatterns.freePatterns&pattern_id=000025)

The color is slightly off in all of these images... you can just mentally average them out. The last one is really overexposed, but it shows the detail. I can't wait to start knitting my own socks now!
8  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / First scarf and homespun things on: December 06, 2007 08:01:02 PM
Here's a post of several things. None of them are that fantastic, so I'm putting them all in one post.

This is my first ever scarf made of Lion Brand mohair. This is what I taught myself to knit on! The beginning is kind of disastrous, but it has character Smiley I got much better by the time I was done.

Then I went on to make this scarf for a friend out of Tudor by Homespun (lion brand). The pattern is pretty simple. It just gave me practice with both knitting and purling, instead of just knitting.

The weather starting cooling down, so I needed something to keep my hands warm, since the jackets I had were more like little sweaters and didn't have pockets! So I just knitted these things up and sewed them together, leaving a thumbhole, as illustrated in a lionbrand.com pattern (knit wristlets).

After I was done with that, I still had some Homespun left, so I made this little clutch, from a pattern at lionbrand.com again ("Claudia's clutch"), knit with a skein of blue also.

Thanks for looking!
9  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Knitty's Jekyll and Hyde Hat/Ski mask on: December 02, 2007 06:18:18 PM
After knitting only two scarves, I took up this ambitious project I found on Knitty.com

It's a Christmas gift for my sister, who loves skiing and also loves to wear hats! Since it was my first knitting in the round project, I messed up quite a bit, but it turned out ok. Most of my errors I was able to cover up so they seem intentional. Here's the finished project!

Also my first shot at ribbing!

And some detail...

So there we go! Thanks for looking!
10  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Camera case on: December 02, 2007 06:07:12 PM
This is a camera case I knit for my cousin. It turned out a little small, but it still fits. I haven't quite figured out gauges and modificiations yet. It was a really quick and simple project. This is my first post in craftster, so I have to post links to my pictures. Thanks for taking a second to look at it and give me any feedback you have.

Thanks again!
