11  jewelry class projects in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by karenie on: May 03, 2005 01:06:59 PM
i'm generally a knitting board poster, but i took a jewelry class this semester, and thought i would share with you all my results!

some of this isn't technically jewelry, but there's not a light metal board, so...

project 1: a bookmark: nickel, approx 2.5" wide

project 2: a book cover, approx 6x6". layers of copper and brass attached to cardboard cover with rivets. oh, how i despise riveting.

project 3: a simple sterling ring, hammered and soldered together

project 4: sterling bracelet, with bezeled stones

I really like how that bracelet turned out, the class was a great relief from the usual history classes that i take. no papers! physical creativity! i conquered my fear of the torch!

12  the aileen bag in Knitting: Completed Projects by karenie on: April 08, 2005 09:43:52 AM
This was a birthday present for my roommate, and has thus been named after her - it's based on the ruffled bag in the first issue of knit.1, but with some alterations, and done in "grass" jiffy, with a purchased burgundy leather flower.

she really likes it, and has been gathering comments around nyc! i love gift knitting.
and ps, the ruffles were going to EAT MY HEAD if i made any more of them. too bad they're so cute!

But will I have enough? and will the conversion math drive me crazy???  sigh. they are the match made in heaven, if i have enough.

ETA: this is the yarn:

what should i do with it if i don't, as i fear, have enough for the capelet?

I just had to show off my cousin's new baby, for whom the blanket was knit. Her name is Paige, and she's just so tiny! 6lbs, 7oz!

15  absurdly fuzzy pink pillow in Knitting: Completed Projects by karenie on: January 13, 2005 07:21:09 AM
I finished a belated birthmas present for a friend who loves pink and just moved into a new apartment, I figured this would be appropriate. I used a chunky yarn (hot pink) held together with a baby pink eyelash for the front, and just the chunky for the back panels, and joined the two with whipstitch. The back is held together with a rhinestone button that I think used to be my grandmother's, how I do love button jars! The whole thing fits a 16" pillow form.

16  baby blanket and golf club cover in Knitting: Completed Projects by karenie on: January 02, 2005 02:44:34 PM
here's some christmas presents that I got done in time, but am just now posting. the baby blanket is actually for a baby that hasn't arrived yet, but who is greatly anticipated. i swear, my cousin has been in and out of labour for a month now. hopefully, i'll get pictures of a baby with the blanket!

this was for dad, and it just fits his 7-wood, so i have to figure out how to make it bigger for the rest of his woods. hm. but as my first attempt at fair-isle, i think it did ok.

I did it! And it turned out really well, actually. I knit it inside out, but it still came out a bit tighter than the regular stockinette. Meanwhile, the next one has to be a lot bigger, this one just fits Dad's 7 wood, which is one of the smaller ones, apparently.

18  mittens! in Knitting: Completed Projects by karenie on: December 03, 2004 08:12:45 PM
I knitted some christmas mittens for my sister, to match her scarf - the one in my icon. They're my first mittens, and I think they turned out well. Anyone know how to make the finger area less pointy? My Grammie's mittens were so nice and round on the end. Sigh. Too bad she didn't use a pattern! Anyway, I made the cuff twice as long so they can be worn unrolled to keep drafts out of her sleeves, or folded down.

I used Lamb's Pride Bulky in Cream and Fuschia, which didn't turn out so well in photos.

19  voodoo wrist warmers and seed stitch hat in Knitting: Completed Projects by karenie on: November 30, 2004 07:03:52 PM
I just got hold of a digital camera, so I figured I'd post some pictures of recently completed projects! The wrist warmers were a knitalong item, my first! I've posted pictures on that board, too, sorry for the overlap, I'm probably just overly excited about them. They're the voodoo ones from knitty and I love them. The hat is a modified kittyville hat from stitch 'n bitch and keeps my ears nice and toasty.

i ended up making the stitch 'n bitch kittyville hat, but without the earflaps or kitty ears:

I think it turned out well. I made it a touch longer than the pattern in the stockinette section, which worked. I guess you could do the whole thing in seed, but I couldn't figure out the decreases, seeing as it would mess up the pattern. The seed also knitted up looser around, biger in circumference, than the stockinette did, so that would have to be taken into consideration.
