1  Shadow baktus scarf (Link to pattern) in Knitting: Completed Projects by megziewoodles on: August 11, 2010 05:37:30 AM
Hi dudes!

I knitted this scarf a few months ago, but had yet to post it here. I wanted to make a baktus scarf (And be cool like a Norwegian) but, I get bored super quickly with garter stitch. AND I wanted to try out illusion/shadow knitting. Hence, this scarf was born.

For those of you who don't know. The Baktus scarf is a pattern for a triangular scarf which is made in garter stitch and is cool in Norway.

So, on with the story. I went yarn shopping one day and bought a ball of Noro Kureyon to make my scarf with. It cost me $13 for the one ball which is more than I would ever pay for any yarn. But it was SOOOOO pretty. I already had a ball of el-cheapo black wool to use with it. I used 4mm needles which produced a scarf that was 148cm long and 25cm wide at its widest point.

It's like a magic scarf, because it has a chevron, but only if you look at it from the right direction. It's pretty useful for freaking out drunk friends at parties.

And here are some pictures.

Look at the magic!

And here is the artistic shot.

And this is what it looks like on.

And here is the link to the pattern.

2  Far away. in Needlework: Completed Projects by megziewoodles on: May 03, 2010 02:19:49 PM
Here's a stitching I made for my boyfriend when he had to go back home to Germany.

EDIT: I figured I should probably give you some details.

It's the final frame of this xkcd strip. I stitched onto a scrap of white polycotton with blue embroidery floss. It was my first attempt at embroidering something other than cross stitch.

3  Tanklet! (It's not clothing! Or a bunny!) in Crochet: Completed Projects by megziewoodles on: May 03, 2010 01:57:53 PM
So, like any normal 21 year old I go to parties sometimes. And like any normal craftaholic I crochet at parties sometimes.

So I present to you my tanklet. He's small enough to fit in the palm of my hand.

I started him at 9:45pm and finished him at 11:45pm. He's just single crochet, cheap acrylic yarn and stuffed with tissues (They were all I had). And of course, when I was finished with him I hid him somewhere in the host's house. But retrieved him from his hidey hole in the morning to take photos.

Everyone at the party was impressed. I got asked stuff like "How long would it take you to knit a tea cosy?" and "Can you make a tessaract?" because the people at the party were cool. Other memorable quotes include "You're good value, I'm gonna add you on facebook" and "Oh, so you made that? I thought you just gave birth to it".

So yeah, definitely go to parties, drink all the milk, learn that tanks with two shooters are mammoth tanks, make friends with geeks, make something out of yarn and then hide it there (preferably in the fridge).

Here is his better side.

4  I need healing! in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by megziewoodles on: February 02, 2010 08:11:17 PM
One of my friends is a sad hippo at the moment, so I thought I'd make him something to cheer him up. He's depressed and we refer to depression as a dragon that must be beaten. Hence the healing potion.

This potion of full healing was made entirely in single crochet. It is very huggable.

You can store it anywhere! With your favourite treasures:

Or in the fridge to keep it cool:

I based it on the potions of full healing from Diablo 1.

5  A rather geeky blanket. in Crochet: Completed Projects by megziewoodles on: December 26, 2009 03:55:03 AM
This blanket is the thing that I am most proud of in my entire crafting life.

It's done entirely in trebles using a filet crochet pattern for a doily. It's about 1.2m square which is big enough to snuggle up in.

I did each colour segment separately, joining them in as I went.

The design on the blanket is the Seal of Rassilon. It's one of the symbols used by the Time Lords in the old series of Doctor Who.

Here it is, featuring yours truly.

And here it is, so you can see the design clearly. Being held up by my fried Tess.

And here is some linkage to the pattern I used.

6  This bunny is so meta. in Knitting: Completed Projects by megziewoodles on: December 13, 2009 02:44:27 AM

This is Meaux, can you see what she's wearing? It's a jumper with pictures of rabbits on it, made from angora which comes from rabbits and she's a rabbit.

She's all shy now.

And here is a close up of the rabbit motif.

You might have to squint to see it.

The bun bun isn't mine. A friend suggested that I knit a jumper for one of her bunnies out of angora and I suggested the rabbit motifs.

I apologise if your brain explodes from the cuteness.

7  Smile, you're on crochet camera! in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by megziewoodles on: October 15, 2009 04:24:20 AM


I made this piece of technology in a snap for one of my friends.

Here is another one of my friends being confused by it.

Notice the lense cap? I'm especially proud of that.

It's all single crochet. And I started it on Saturday and finished it on Sunday afternoon.

Here's the back.

There's the viewfinder and the screen.

Here's the top.

So yeah, I'm pretty proud of it. Everyone wants to hug it. I've taken a lot of pictures with it. Its memory card is nearly full.

8  I made a cowl. Not a cow, a cowl. in Crochet: Completed Projects by megziewoodles on: May 20, 2009 06:36:20 AM

I am srsface here.

This was really easy, it took me about 2 hours and one ball of yarn to make. Just a rectangle of DC with the ends sewn together.

9  Fingerstaches are pretty cool. (}: (NOW WITH 15% MORE PATTERN!) in Knitting: Completed Projects by megziewoodles on: May 09, 2009 03:21:15 AM

I knitted this today. I'm quite obsessed with moustaches.

It's just an intarsia moustache on a rectangle of stocking stitch sew up one side.

Very simple, very quick, very moustachy.

I want to make a couple of different styles, so I'm gonna post them in this thread too.

The toothbrush moustache.

EDIT: Pattern of sorts:

Needles and yarn:
3mm needles.
8ply in black and another colour.

Difficulty: So very simple. As long as you're cool with a bit of colourwork.

Size: 5.5cm long by 6.5cm circumference.

Tension: 5.5 stitches = 2cm
8 rows = 2cm
This doesn't need to be perfect. You can always add extra rows (or skip them).

Actual pattern:
Cast on 17st.
Work 9 rows in stocking stitch.
Do the colourwork using The Chart(TM)
Work 9 rows in stocking stitch.
Cast off.

The Chart(TM):

The walrus.

The toothbrush

Sew your cast on to your cast off, weave in the ends. Wear, look ridiculous.

Additional notes: You can cast on with a provisional cast on and graft the ends together if you're keen.
And you can duplicate stitch on the pattern, just work 4 rows where it should be and add it later.
Feel free to add or remove rows if you need to.

Other bit:
Only I'm allowed to sell stuff made with this pattern, okay? Cool. Also, I'd love to see photos of what you've made.

10  Knitted weaponry is fun. (: in Knitting: Completed Projects by megziewoodles on: April 27, 2009 06:49:02 AM

This axe was forged from the yarn of blue by the great and noble Megan. It was gifted unto the Captain of all Daves for his birthday of 23. The Lady Megan underwent many dangerous challenges in order to create and deliver this weapon. First was misshapen prototype of yore, followed by the theives who attempted to steal this precious artifact. Such a cutesy device was coveted by all in the land and many cuddles were stolen before it could be delivered to the Captain.

This double bladed battle axe does d8 damage and has the added bonus of +1 to cuddly and ridiculous. It grants the wielder the perk of "Sheer Awesome". Note: You must be proficient in knitted weaponry to wield it.
