1  Re: YARN DYEING 101 - KOOL AID in Dyeing: Completed Projects by curlymo on: June 12, 2006 10:07:46 AM
I recently finished my first kool-aid dyed skein - thanks in great part to the wonderful inspiration and wisdom shared here. 

I used Lemon Lime, Berry Blue, and Changin' Cherry - just one packet of each, and the yarn is Knitpicks Color Your Own sock yarn.  I followed Eunny Jang's great tutorial to make it self-striping.  (Find it here - http://www.eunnyjang.com/knit/2005/12/techniques_selfstriping_yarn.html)

Check out the entry on my blog for more pix and details.  It's here - http://curlymo.blogspot.com/2006/06/fun-with-koolaid-and-wool.html

2  Lace Trim Bolero from VK Spring/Summer 2005 in Knitting: Completed Projects by curlymo on: May 25, 2005 12:11:43 PM
I just finished my lace trim bolero and I'm very pleased.  A couple more pictures are on my blog (http://curlymo.blogspot.com).  The pattern was just complicated enough to keep me interested, but it did seem like the lace trim took forever. 

Oh, and I love Knit Picks Shine (which is the yarn I subbed for the crazy expensive Fiesta La Luz called for in the pattern).

My apologies if the picture does not appear - you can see it here (http://curlymo.blogspot.com/2005/05/and-this-is-little-jacket-i-made.html) for sure.

Ok, I'm just a few inches from finishing up the back!

Edit:  I just heard that this image isn't working for everyone.  You can view it here: http://photos1.blogger.com/img/238/1774/640/100_0258.jpg

4  Cute apron pattern - Simplicity 4740 in Sewing Pattern Reviews by curlymo on: March 09, 2005 02:56:52 PM
I just finished this apron today. This was my first sewing project with a pattern, and I had some trouble figuring things out at first.  Now that I'm done, I have to say that this was worth the effort and fairly uncomplicated.  I think these would make great gifts!

Here's a pic of my finished work:

5  Puppers - great Christmas gift idea! in Knitting: Completed Projects by curlymo on: November 10, 2004 03:29:25 PM

Based on the Puppers pattern ( http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEsummer03/PATTpuppers.html )from Knitty Summer 03, I used my free time this weekend to whip up a frog, an elephant, a bear, a pig (you can't see the cute curlique tail in the back), and a mouse - all from leftover yarn. They were so fun to make and really fast.  I'm sending them to my two-year-old nephew in Japan for Christmas and I would recommend them to anyone looking for a fun gift for a little one.

6  Really easy hat in Knitting: Completed Projects by curlymo on: September 22, 2004 03:10:52 PM
This is my first time posting a completed project.  This is a hat I just finished in time for the beginning of autumn.  It was so easy. I sort of followed the pattern here: http://www.groovy-mom.com/crafty/patterns/chunkyribbedhat.shtml, but I didn't use chunky yarn, I used some leftover Caron Simply Soft, with size 8 needles.  I also only made it 7.5 inches long instead of 9.

There's a picture here:

I think it will be cuter on my head.   Wink
