The swirls are great! I think it looks awesome that way!  I like that you picked the 1-up mushroom too. Good choice Smiley

That looks really do-able. I'm so excited to get started!!! Thanks for your help and for inspiring me to make all my Triforce DS knit cozy dreams come true!!! (Perhaps you are the Great Fairy in disguise? lol)

Wow! Awesome! Anything Zelda is the best thing ever in my book. I was thinking the other day of making a DS case/cozy for myself and what a great idea to have the Triforce on it! I've never done intarsia before...and I'm a pretty newbie knitter, so maybe I can knit the Triforce separately and sew it on to the case? Hmm. Anyway, well done! :-D Keep up the Zelda knitting Smiley

Wow, so cute! You could probably tweak this to make a Kirby too. Then you an have a pink-puffball battle a la Smash Bros.!
1496  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / First *finished* project: Garter stitch scarf! on: October 01, 2008 01:02:19 PM
This is technically my 2nd knitting project, but it is the first one I've finished. I'm not gonna lie: I'm pretty proud of it, I think it came out great! I actually made it for my fiance, and he seems to like it as well (which is what really matters to me).

I used the "Perfectly Pink Scarf" pattern in my Learn to Knit book. It called for size 8 needles, which I think are a perfect fit for my small hands. I decided to get bamboo ones to try them out, and I think I'm pretty much sold on these. I ended up using Lion Brand Vanna's choice in olive green, espresso (it looks blue in these pictures) and ivory!

The garter stitch got to be a little tedious, but it felt like I could get a lot done in one sitting. The color changing was a great newbie experience for me! The only thing is, this was a pain in my rear end to finish: weaving all the ends in was soooooooooo annoying!!! I did end up carrying the brown yard with the ivory, but still there were like 2 yarn ends for each color change and then there were 7 sets of stripes on each side!

Well, anyways. Here are the pics. Thank you for looking! Comments and creative criticism are always welcome in my book! :-D

Pic 1: Modeling in my PJ's. This way you can see the length/width with perspective.

Pic 2: Close up. Sorry for the blurriness. Our digicam sucks. That is actually a dark brown color, not blue. The green was also a little darker than in the pic

Pic 3: Showing the scarf folded on the couch

Pic 4: Another showing, only you can see the horrible job I did weaving in the ends Smiley
1497  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: How did you learn your craft? on: September 09, 2008 10:04:46 AM
As a beginner knitter myself, I learned how to do the knit stitch from a book in the craft store that also had beginner and easy patterns. I was having problems with the purl stitch and I ended up using You-Tube to learn how to do that. I was just pointed in the direction of knittinghelp.com which has some great resources (as smittenheart pointed out). In fact, I learned I was holding the needles the wrong way from watching the videos on that site. Now that I know the correct way, I'm able to knit a lot faster than I was. I've been knitting for a few months now (I'm on my second project..yes I know that makes me a really slow knitter) and I'm really excited about it! I can't wait to get better so I can start making fancier pieces and using more complicated techniques!  Grin
1498  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: First Project: Half a Pillow! on: September 09, 2008 09:28:26 AM
CatieD that is a great idea!  Grin The pattern said I would need an 18" pillow form, so 16" isn't bad at all! Now I just have to get to the store this week to get one! This will now give me some practice on seaming. Thanks so much for your input!

P.S. The cat (Lucy?) as your avatar is super-cute! What beautifully colored fur!!

I love both of the colors you used for the vest and the bag! Very cute! Plus (not to sound repetitive) the vest looks really good on you! The pattern is also great, classy yet modern!
1500  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: My First Knitted Socks--and I LOVE 'Em! :-) on: September 08, 2008 09:21:20 AM
Those are awesome socks! I love the colors!

Did you use circular needles for those or double pointed? I've been thinking about moving onto socks at some point (I'm just a beginner knitter) but double pointed needles frighten me like no other.   Shocked
