1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Zombie Octie ^__^ on: January 05, 2010 07:56:05 PM

I modified the Common Octopus by Hansi Singh (which I've made numerous times before) into my own creepy, murderous, undead version.

I'm calling him the Zombie Octie. Not quite an octo-pus anymore due to a number of his limbs being half eaten off, also there seems to be some kind of brain matter or guts coming out of his head. He holds in his nubs his lunch, also known as a human brain.

What does he want?! BRAINS!
When does he want it?! BRAAAAAAAINS!

Zombie Octie then decided yarn-brains were not sufficient and decided to attack me... That makes me a zombie now too, I guess... Damnit.

2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Dainty Rouge Gloves on: January 05, 2010 01:12:58 PM

These are my Dainty Rouge Gloves.The pattern is a modified version of Hooray for Me gloves (http://www.marniemaclean.com/patterns/HFMGloves/HFMGloves.html). Longer, mock-cabled cuff, and I added the convertible flap to change it into mittens.

I'm calling them my Dainty Rogue Gloves as an illusion to one of my favorite George Meridith quotes, Shes a dainty rogue in porcelain, from his novel The Egoist. It means shes a rebel posing as an upright lady, and thats totally the girl I made these for ^_^. These gloves are lovely and pretty, but slightly deceiving. When worn as a mitten, the cable runs up the middle almost like the wearer is flipping the bird Cheesy

Hope you guys enjoy!
3  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Queen of Hearts on: November 02, 2009 06:09:27 PM

This year I went as the Queen of Hearts from Alice and Wonderland. It was kind of my own version. I used an old bridesmaid's dress, and a red corset for the top.
For the belt I took a piece of elastic and taped cards to it. For the collar and cuffs I used an old red tie (taken apart and re-sewn) and coffee-filters to make the puffy-ness. They were layered on top of one another and made the perfect Elizabethian collar thingy. :}

You can't see in many of the pics, but I have a tiara on, and a felt rose that I made myself in my hair.

Hope you guys enjoy!

4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Starfish and Jellyfish Tams! (IMG hvy) on: May 11, 2008 08:44:58 PM
So, thanks to the wonderful, and now Craftster famous, "Mermaid Tam," I decided to knit up one of my own, and keeping with the aquatic theme, I called it my Starfish Hat (plus the back looks like a starfish ^.^). Directly after finishing it I started casting on my second version of different colors, which I've decided to call my Jellyfish Hat. I love love love them both dearly!
The Starfish:
And the Jellyfish:

I decreased differently on the Jellyfish so it wouldn't make that star, which at first I didn't like, but now I love. I also only used two colors of gray and pink simplysoft for the Starfish, but I used some scrap brown and simplysoft shadow yarn for the Jellyfish, I love the effect the shadow yarn had.

5  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Nintendo Controler Clutch on: April 09, 2008 04:17:46 PM

Alright, so here it is, but I really don't like it yet, and I don't know what to do. It's all out of shape and crappy looking. I could maybe line it... or unseem it and try a different tactic.. but something is not working, and I can't give it to the person I wanted to make a gift out of it to until it's perfect.

Anyone have any thoughts? Huh I'd hate for something so cute to go to waste because I can't make it look like an actual purse.
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Easy Braid Scarf and Fingerless Gloves on: April 03, 2008 03:23:38 PM
So I went to France recently was was AMAZED at how many yarn shops I found myself in... Needless to say, I bought a lot of yarn home to America with me, this was one of the projects that came out of that perfect stash:
Braided Scarf
-literally just three long stockinette stitched lines braided together and binded at the ends. Super Easy knit, but when you have to knit the same thing 3 times you kind of want to kill yourself.

And a close up, with me pouting for some reason Cheesy :

This is one of the fingerless gloves I made from my other French Yarn. I've made a hat with this in a previous post, for my boyfriend, and had a lot of left over yarn, so I started these up, just kind of making it up as a went. They're weird, but I like them. They're going to be nice in the spring:

Hope you like! (And I'm a comment whore, so please- if you have input, I would love to hear!)
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / The Boyfriend/Old Lady Hat on: February 25, 2008 08:52:36 PM
So this is the hat I just knit up for my boyfriend (ain't he cute? Tongue) with yarn I bought while I was in France. He says he likes it, but I think it looks kind of old lady-ish. I can't really decide if I like it on him or not. I have lots of extra yarn, so technically I can make him a matching scarf, but... Well, you guys tell me- what do you think about it?

The pattern is from Debbie Stoller's new Stitch 'n Bitch for guys. One of the only hats in it, and since I heart the hats, I had to do it.

Thanks for looking!

(...wow, I just noticed that he matches the couch... hehe)
8  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Sam Bag- From S&B on: February 13, 2008 07:58:02 PM
I keep posting... tonight was the first time I've actually put my stuff on craftster, even though I've been a fan for half a decade, and now I just can't stop!

This is a bag I made for my friend Sammy, so it of course became known while I was knitting it as my "Sam Bag." It's from a pattern from Stitch 'n Bitch, and I tried to replicate the picture as much as possible, I think it looks pretty similar.

This is my niece Lily modeling the Sam Bag:

I actually lined and put a pocket in this bag, something which I've never done before, and I totally winged it, I was so proud of myself ^.^
9  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Mittens that rock my hands on: February 13, 2008 07:16:11 PM
Mittens I made for my friend's birthday. I'm happy to say she actually wears them.  ^.^
They're my own pattern, but I mostly made them up as I went, then made them extra special by adding a cabled cuff which I got from some Knitty pattern. The yarn changes tones of blue, and as soon as I finished I was sad to see them go, but I think I'll just have to make a new pair for myself.
10  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Cable Hats, Desert Sunrise and Ponytail on: February 13, 2008 06:51:39 PM
Two hats I've made semi-recently. I used the pattern off of HeadHuggers website (check it out, the mannequins on it are crazy disturbing!), both of which I've altered for my own evil ways.

The first one I made for my friend Ashe who always wears a ponytail, and in this freezing Wisconsin weather can never wear a hat successfully. So I though: Hat + Hole... and Viola! A Ponytail Hat! The colors of light brown and dark brown were to match her gloves. The hole was kind of lame and square, and this pic was taken with a phone, so it's hard to see, but my next one will be better, I'm sure.

The second one was with a beautiful ball of yarn I got, that I renamed Desert Sunrise, because it reminds me of Arizona everytime I look at it.
