1  Scary Ski Mask in Knitting: Completed Projects by betsyjean79 on: February 21, 2007 02:40:00 AM
Yay! My first challenge Cheesy

I first saw this mask right here on Craftster. As soon as I saw it, I had to make it Smiley I've needed a reason to get it out and take pictures Smiley What better reason than a challenge?

I used a pattern from a vintage McCall's Needlework magazine. The pattern is for a child size mask, so I just used a thicker yarn and followed the pattern. The only thing I changed was the hair color and style. I used tassels instead of pompoms.
Please don't have nightmares because of it, lol.

2  Hat Goodness (image heavy, dial up users beware) in Knitting: Completed Projects by betsyjean79 on: January 06, 2006 12:41:39 PM

This hat makes me think of a strawberry. The pattern is from an older Cast On and the yarn is Cascade 220.

This is DH's hat. I used the frivol hat pattern and Knitpick's Wool of the Andes or merino, I can't remember. It has been dubbed "Th Birthday Cake."

I saved the best for last. This is my favorite to date. I based it off a free pattern on Elann and is a mix of Paton's and Knitpick wool. There are no charts for the fair isle with the pattern, so I had to make my own. I also cheated by making the the top flat so I wouldn't have to make new charts for the lower stitch counts. The ribbon is actually covering up a mistake. I was going to make a picot edge around the bottom of the hat, but changed my mind after I was unwilling to rip it all out. So, to cover up the mistake, I threaded a ribbon through.

Hope everyone had a good holiday season. I look forward to more knitted gift pictures.

3  Amelia Earhart Aviator Cap in Knitting: Completed Projects by betsyjean79 on: November 09, 2005 01:06:40 AM
I finally conquered this pattern. I tried to make this hat when I first started knitting, and it was out of my league with all the wrap and turns. So a few years later, it caught my eye again, and here she is complete. I jazzed it up a bit with a crocheted edge and a couple flowers so it didn't look like an epilepsy helmet. (When I put it on without embellishments, I put it on and I immediately thought of Garden State.) Hope you like it. Grin

Well here is babe #2. She is done except she doesn't have shoes yet. For her I used knitpicks merino which worked very well. Her hair is dreaded which was achieved by felting basically a tassel. I then strung 3 or 4 dreads into bunches, then sewed onto her head. Her clothes were completely winged except for her fancy red undies, which are pretty much the pattern in the book, only shorter. Hope you like her.

Sorry for all the pictures, but this girl is just so photogenic Smiley

5  Who's that babe? in Knitting: Completed Projects by betsyjean79 on: September 27, 2005 10:26:18 PM
I saw the book Knitted Babes and had to have it and of course make something from it. As soon as I got home with the book, I casted on. Now, three days later, I have this:

Her dress is pretty blah, but I couldn't show her off naked, so I whipped this up.  I have yet to make any shoes for her spaghetti feet, but that time will come. I can't wait to make her some more clothes and accesories. She was a snap to make, and I would highly recommend this book, these girls are too cute. I hope others have made/are making babes and will post them. I saw the knit along, but didn't join cause I churned her out so quick. I am still up in the air about a name, but Sassafrass may be it.

6  I shall call him Spanky... in Knitting: Completed Projects by betsyjean79 on: September 15, 2005 04:21:46 AM
Here is my orangutan that I started almost a year ago, then tossed him aside. Tons of rows of garter stitch on US3 needles lost my interest quickly. I recently regained interest in him and finished it quickly. The pattern is from Kath Dalmeny's World of Knitted Toys . Maybe Spanky and Mr. Dangly are related somehow? Hope you like him. Thanks for looking.

7  Another hat, will it ever end? in Knitting: Completed Projects by betsyjean79 on: September 14, 2005 01:52:49 AM
Here is a pair of hats I made for a husband and wife. No pattern was used for either, I just winged them and whatever happened, happened. The pics are pretty bad, but that's what happens when you take the pics all by your lonesome.I know I put the red, white, and blue one up in another post, but ehh, what the heck. Thanks for looking.

OK, so I finished an adult size hat following Messily's tip. It worked out really well. The only thing I would do different is make the nubbles larger by making like 6 or 7 stitches in one, instead of the 5 called for in the pattern. Other than that it worked out great. I actually had the cajones to post my face on craftster this time, whoohoo.Thank you for the pattern. Hope you like the hat.

P.S. I am by no means attempting a sexy look in the second pic. A camera flash is really bright at 4am Smiley

9  Patriotic hat in Knitting: Completed Projects by betsyjean79 on: August 02, 2005 11:41:21 PM
This hat started off kind of ugly, but then it grew into something else. I am not so good at color work, so I decided to practice, and this is what was born. Enjoy!

10  Baby Shower Madness (Lots of pictures) in Knitting: Completed Projects by betsyjean79 on: May 28, 2005 03:37:45 AM
Because of the double baby shower I have coming up this weekend, it's been a baby knitting frenzy. The 2 preggo ladies are getting one ensemble each. One knows she's having a girl (she gets the purple set) and the other is having a suprise baby (she gets the mix match set). Hope you like them. I am proud and am so relieved I am done. Enjoy!

The red hat is the Lil' Devil hat which I found the pattern free online. It's made out of TLC acrylic yarn. The tiny green socks are Knit Picks alpaca cloud or shimmer, I can't remember which. The pattern is from the latest issue of Interweave Knits. The purple set is a Dale of Norway pattern and is made out of Sirdar's Snuggly. I look forward to your comments!
