1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / A simple headband on: March 29, 2009 02:02:52 PM
I've been working on an endless stockinette project lately, and I needed something to take the edge off. This happened to work perfectly--the Basketweave Headband. The pattern's on Ravelry and here--http://carissaknits.blogspot.com/2007/06/basketweave-headband.html

I really like the colors in the yarn! Looks like mint chocolate chip ice cream.

Thanks for looking! Smiley

3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Waste yarn in mitten project on: January 28, 2009 11:36:45 AM
Hi! I've just started making these mittens
and I got up to the direction that says:
Next Round (mitten 1): Knit 14, Knit 14 on waste yarn, go back and knit across waste yarn
with MC, begin next round.

And then I stopped, because I have no idea what "on waste yarn" means. I mean, I know it requires waste yarn, but...do you just attach the waste yarn, knit the stitches, then use the normal color and....and what? AGH THE PHYSICS OF THIS CONFUSE ME.

Does anyone know how this works, and if so, could you help me out? It's a fairly time-sensitive project...thanks so much in advance.
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / First t-shirt recon! on: October 08, 2008 07:03:54 AM
So, here's the story:
Tomorrow I'm going to a Streetlight Manifesto show, and I couldn't think of any shirt I had that was really punk enough to wear--furthermore, all my ska-band shirts are huge on me. So I took one of my ratty Aquabats shirts, cut off the sleeves, cut up the sides, and sewed it back together in a form-fitting fashion. It took two days to finish, and while the stitching LOOKS really bad (i'm a knitter by trade), it's pretty strong! I tried skanking in it and had to reinforce the 'pit seams. But yay, I recon'd something, and I like it a lot  Smiley

After photos (i forgot to take "before" ones :O)
In the bathroom of my dorm, 'cause I'm cool like that:

in my friend's messy room....

obligatory "awkward shot"

Thanks for looking! Comments appreciated!

5  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / What's this stitch?! on: June 14, 2008 07:42:55 AM
Hi crocheters...I'm a knitter. OMG DON'T ATTACK ME
But I've been dabbling in crochet (really, really dabbling--just swatches) for a few months. Last night I started hooking again, because I've had a weird interest in it lately, and I realized I have no idea what stitch I'm using.
It looks like this:

One of my friends taught me how to do the stitch but never told me the name. It's like...you have a stitch on the hook already. You spear one, loop, pull one over, loop, pull two over, and start again.

Thanks--I'm such a crochet n00b. :]
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Yo Gabba Gabba Muno stuffie! on: May 03, 2008 03:57:57 PM
I'm a big fan of YGG, so here's Muno!! He was super annoying to sew up. Lots of ends to weave in. But now he's red and smiley and brightens up the room.
I used Wool-Ease Jiffy.

Comments appreciated! :]
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Going-away gifts on: April 11, 2008 08:58:10 AM
So last week I learned that my music teacher and her husband are leaving my school and moving away. I'm really, really sad, but when they said they were moving to Chicago, I was like "Holy guacamole! It's gonna be cold there! I have to knit them something!"
So, what are some simple, fast, non-cabled items that I could make for them that would keep them super-warm? I want to make them match for him and her :]
8  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Felting question on: March 30, 2008 09:28:53 AM
This summer, I want to make a felted bag. If I knit the bag up and then put a little logo on it in duplicate stitch, will the duplicate stitch'd area felt along with the bag, or will it end up all wonky? Also, is it true that white wool doesn't felt well? :/

Thank you!
9  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Aquabats accessories! Super rad! on: March 29, 2008 06:45:38 PM
I'm a gigantic Aquabats fan. Like, amazingly so. When I first started loving the band (january), I made this hat in Charge!! colors:

Then I learned they were coming to NYC for a show in February. So, naturally, I had to make Charge!! gloves.

thanks for viewing--you're super rad. comments appreciated!
10  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Macaroni the Worm! on: March 29, 2008 09:36:59 AM
This is Macaroni.

Macaroni likes flowers.

A lot.

I think he's pretty cute. He's my first big DPN project--size 8 needles, with Lion Brand Homespun. I started him on Easter and finished him that Wednesday. He's got beans in his head and the rest of him is polyfil.
Should I make him a sister called Macarena?  Cheesy
