Just to add a photo that shows the stitch better:

Sorry it's a bit dark, but you get the idea  Smiley

2  noodle scarf in Knitting: Completed Projects by eoz on: January 04, 2006 08:52:46 PM
...'cos my sister says it looks like noodles.

It's knitted using some old cotton ribbon-type yarn that was in my grandmother's (huge) stash. The pattern is just garter stitch. Every few rows (can't remember how many) I wound the yarn 5 times, hence the ginormous stitches:

I put some paper beads I made and some cheap pretend-glass beads on the fringe:

This was my last project for 2005, I finished about 9:30 on new years eve Smiley

3  stylish half-record purse in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by eoz on: January 01, 2006 12:38:28 AM
This is my take on the record purse. The record part isn't actually structural - it's glued on to the fabric bag I made.

In action (egads my mirror is dusty):

4  Cabled armwarmers. in Knitting: Completed Projects by eoz on: July 24, 2005 02:16:02 AM
My wrists were cold, and it's hard to type with gloves on.

Yes, they are quite typical of the armwarmer genre. But they were easy to make, and now my wrists are snug and warm. Smiley

As far as the pattern goes: I made it up as I went along, pretty much, and learned the "if you make a pair of things, write down what you do when you make the first one" lesson all over again.  Tongue Basically, they're knitted in the round, with a couple of increases at the start of the hand, and a section done flat to make a thumb-hole. The cable is from an aran cardigan in a scary 80s book.

5  Bright! Red! Knee-high! Socks! in Knitting: Completed Projects by eoz on: July 24, 2005 02:08:18 AM
Oh yes, I'm excited.

These things are toasty-warm. (Yes, it's winter here in the upside-down part of the world  Tongue)

I'd never made anything with dpns before this. Several friends saw me knitting and said, "So that's how you knit tubes!" I feel all educational and stuff.

Speaking of educational, the funniest "you're knitting" comments came from lecturers when I'd do a couple of rounds before class started. One asked me if I was working on a scarf (!) Another - who at least was sufficiently observant to notice the tubular (is that a word?), non-scarf nature of the piece - made a comment about gloves. Maybe I was too far back for him to see that the thing was 15" long and had no fingers.

Technical stuff: the basic shape is the short-row toe-up sock (http://wendyjohnson.net/blog/sockpattern.htm
) with numbers adjusted for thick wool. The stitch pattern is in a book somewhere. I'll look it up if anyone wants. (It's uber-simple.)

6  Red lacey belt. in Knitting: Completed Projects by eoz on: March 06, 2005 06:25:46 PM
I found a whole pile of cotton I'd bought a few years ago. And then I found a lace pattern I wanted to try. And I didn't want yet another scarf. So I made a belt:

It's just a long thin rectangle, with long fringing used to tie it. Couldn't be easier (barring, of course, being made in garter stitch Wink)

Detail of the pattern:

I still have 5 (of 6) balls of cotton, in various shades of red/pink/purple. Looks like 5 people will be getting belts as birthday presents... Grin

7  Grecian plait jumper from knitty. in Knitting: Completed Projects by eoz on: February 22, 2005 06:00:05 PM
I made this with much lighter wool than the one on knitty (http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEspring03/PATTgrecian.html) - if I had made it with warm, thick mohair, I would have made the sleeves full length, 'cos I have this aversion to warm-but-3/4-sleeve jumpers. Anyway. I made it with patons caressa (http://patons.biz/colour_range.asp?yarnid=12) and so far it hasn't stretched too much, despite the use of needles a couple of sizes larger than as recommended on the ball band. Also, the entire jumper took me just over 4 balls, and I bought them on special for AUD2.50/ball, so it's my $10 jumper. Whoohoo!

lying flat on my bed:

bad, bad mirror shot:

(dark, blurry) detail of the stitch:

At some point, I'm going to pick up the stitches on the front neckline, and bring it up a bit, 'cos at the moment it's a bit too plunge-y for my tastes. (That'll teach me to do the neck without measuring properly... Grin)

btw: As I was making it, I found a couple of errors in the "X stitches remain" bits of the pattern - if you're planning on making this, don't take those numbers too seriously. The actual increases/decreases are correct, though. (in size small, anyway.)

8  Boring dress into pirate-esque skirt in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by eoz on: December 09, 2004 06:56:07 PM
Over two and a half years after my school ball, I've finally done something useful with what is possibly the world's most boring dress (hey, it was $15), which I had accessorised with a rather boring scarf:

(how boring can you get?)

Wearing my new skirt, I feel rather like I should be a pirate. Dunno why. The requisite bad mirror photo:

The random lines are because the "full length mirror" is actually a bunch of smaller mirrors. The shiny blurry thing (as opposed to all the other blurry things) is an old brooch. I don't know how easy it is to see, but I've used the scarf as a waist-band which I've tried to make look like I've just tied a scarf round my waist. It also happens to hide the super-dodgy zipper.

Now I just need somewhere to wear the thing. Smiley

9  Mini disco ball in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by eoz on: December 06, 2004 11:56:59 PM
Well, not quite a disco ball: I couldn't be bothered cutting the cds up small enough to give a more continuous coverage (?!) of the ball...

I plan to make a couple more so's I can have a bunch hanging off the back patio.
