1  Knit Green Clutch for summer :) in Knitting: Completed Projects by rabideloise on: June 04, 2005 04:47:43 PM
I did this in a night, modified from samilynn9's  felted clutch ( https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=30175.0 ).  I added more shaping and used stockinette stitch instead of garter and opted out of the eyelash yarn.  I think if I toss this in the washer it may felt a bit...the yarn is Lion Brand Watercolors #373 Pond Green, which is 65% acrylic and 35% merino. Out of all the Lion Brand I use, I like this the best, along with Cotton Ease SmileySmiley

Please excuse the typical Myspace/scenester bathroom pictures. The bathroom has the best lighting! I'm sorry!


'Scuse my boobs and the flash.

I think I will line this, maybe with http://www.joann.com/catalog.jhtml?CATID=96020&PRODID=98965 or http://reprodepot.com/jazzage.html or http://reprodepot.com/mijo.html.  If anyone has some cool fabric links let me know. thanks Smiley

Here is my almost botched Marsupial tote...I ran out of yarn at the end so I had to improvise.  I'm thinking of getting some wooden handles for it instead because the yarn handles won't be sturdy enough.  I'm also going to attempt to felt it again.

Yarn: Elann.com Peruvian Collection Wool

Here it is. I inverted the colour scheme.

Here's my cell phone cozy, modified from the "Mobile Monsters" pattern in SnBN:

Yarn: Lion Brand Watercolors in Pond Green
Time: 1 hour
Modifications: I added a handle made by CO 18 stitches and then binding them off--I figured it would be stronger than an i-cord. I didn't use any buttons or make it look like an animal, either. The pattern said to CO 32 stitches, but since my yarn was twice the size of the yarn called for, I cut the number in half and did 16 instead, which turned out to be perfect because the yarn is pretty bulky. I also modified the flap that closes the cozy, leaving it open for easy access.

My phone in the cozy.

Close-up of phone and cozy.

Bottom hole for charger and earpiece.

Mermaid button I used for the handle--I felt it was sturdier to use this than a regular button. I'm always changing bags so it's helpful to have one side of the handle that can detach from the cozy itself so I can hook it on other straps easily. (button is from http://www.77industries.com )

Thickness of cozy.

8  Russian Winter Hat from SnBN in Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller by rabideloise on: February 18, 2005 12:55:40 AM
This is my first time posting a completed project, and I'm very happy with how it turned out because I had to frog this thing about 4 times to get everything correct through trial and error.  But it was worth it!

I substituted Austermann Koala in #13 Burnished Apricot instead of the GGH, which I did find online but it was too expensive.  For the ties, I used the Peruvian Collection Highland Wool in Allspice.  (I got it from Elann.com.)

And here are the pictures  Shocked

It's so cute, and when I wore it out today I got a compliment from a guy who asked where I got it, and he seemed surprised when I answered that I'd made it.  He asked how, and I said, "Knitting!"  Then he was even more surprised.   Cheesy
